This is a course for dietitians feeling overwhelmed or stuck when it comes to starting their own business.
If you want to start our business, but have no idea where to start, or if you've taken some steps but are struggling to move forward - this is for you!
Here's what we'll be covering:
I've been working with dietitian entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs for years. A consistent theme: feeling overwhelmed, lost, stuck, and wanting to know how to "do it right".
As dietitians we are the nutrition experts - we have the knowledge and training to help people live their best lives. But most of us didn’t get much (if any!) business training. Because of this, I've watched so many incredible, smart dietitians struggle to get their businesses off the ground and make the money they deserve.
I want to help shorten your learning curve and increase your confidence so that you can start your business NOW. I created this Foundations Course so that you can take immediate action in setting up and launching your own business.
Course Fee of $297 Includes:
I have been hoping to start a virtual practice for over a year, but was overwhelmed trying to figure out where to start and how to make sure I was "doing it right." This literally answered every question and concern that I had and gave me all of the tools necessary to take action. It has given me so much confidence in my ability to start and run my own practice.
I highly recommend this to any dietitian out there who dreams of being their own boss, but is confused or overwhelmed about how to get there.

"I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in starting a business, but feels lost in where to begin or doubts they can do it. Not only do you learn how to start, but also gain confidence in what you are capable of and have to offer. I immediately felt inspired, confident and motivated to get my practice started. I know what steps I need to take and the direction I am heading."
Jasmine Hormati, RD-2-Be.
"When I began thinking about starting my own business, I was all over the place in terms of what I wanted to do, where I wanted to go, and how to make it happen. The most instant result of this was a clear roadmap of what steps I need to take to get started in a very clear and organized way.
I would definitely recommend this retreat to others. Even (actually especially!) if you don't feel 'ready' to start your business, the information will help you get there."
