On episode 315 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews nurse innovator and entrepreneur Brian Mohika regarding Cathwear, his wildly successful company, and his new book, Let it Flow: One Nurse’s Entrepreneurial Journey. From the joys of home health nursing to overcoming rejection and myriad obstacles, Brian has a great deal to share about his very own nursing hero’s journey.
Brian Mohika is a registered nurse from Boston, MA. Brian has multiple science degrees and owns several US medical patents, one European Patent on different inventions, and is the CEO of a medical device company called CathWear. Brian has a passion to improve patient experience within a healthcare setting and to advance the nursing profession to new heights with his inventions. His inspiration comes from the failures and successes of becoming a nurse entrepreneur and bringing an idea to market. Although Brian quit on his first invention, he has built a platform to motivate other nurses to never quit on their ideas because the patients need it.
The American Nurses Association Innovation Advisory Board has asked Brian to sit on their Board as a member. Now Brian can pursue his lifelong passion of helping other nurses break through tough obstacles and create their visions to advance the nursing profession while positively impacting healthcare.
About Brian’s new book, Let it Flow:
Have you ever seen a need and said to yourself, “I wish that someone would invent . . . “? Or perhaps you have entertained the idea of even trying to invent something that would meet that need but didn’t know where to start. If either of these scenarios has occurred to you, then this book is for you. Based upon the true-life story of a registered nurse who saw a need, the author took it upon himself to create an invention to meet that need, and his invention turned into an international company (CathWear) that has not only won several awards, but is also meeting needs worldwide.
Let It Flow describes in detail how this nurse launched his business, with all of its successes and struggles, and how you can start a business of your own that can meet the needs that you see around you. Filled with inspiring story after story, this book will help bring motivation to the reader to step out into the unknown and act upon their own creative energy to meet needs beyond what he/she may have thought was impossible.
