Work on Your Business | Collaborate with Like-Minded Entrepreneurs | Make Long-Lasting Connections
When I first started my business, I felt very much alone. As a solopreneur, I was not only the CEO but also the sales team, product department, IT, customer support, operations...even the janitor! I had no business background to speak of, yet here I was making daily decisions that affected my business and my livelihood...all on my own.
While I loved the flexibility, I felt very isolated. There was no one to bounce ideas off of, or gripe about an annoying client; no brainstorming sessions or after-work drinks. No sense of solidarity.
Which is why I decided to create the Dietitian Entrepreneur Mastermind Retreat.
An entire weekend devoted to WORKING on your business, CONNECTING with like-minded entrepreneurs, and COLLABORATING on ideas and ways to grow your businesses. Come and be surrounded by a community of nutrition entrepreneurs who are taking risks and changing lives. This is not a big conference - I am purposefully keeping it small (just 15 people!) to allow you to connect and build relationships with the other attendees. These people will be your network not just during the event, but for years afterwards. You'll have a built-in support network to ask questions and get feedback on a regular basis after the retreat ends. For those interested in forming ongoing mastermind and accountability groups, this is the perfect place to start.
Gain clarity and confidence in your business while making friends and having a blast.
Because going it alone doesn't have to be lonely.
PLUS, you'll receive training on topics to help grow your business - things they don't teach you in nutrition school!

"The Mastermind Retreat gave me insight into the life I wanted for myself, the realization that it was truly achievable, and the strength, confidence, and push I needed to get started. I left my full-time job two months after the Retreat and one month later I had already doubled my monthly income. I am so much happier and content with my life thanks to Alissa and the continuing support of the group. I would absolutely recommend the Retreat to nutrition entrepreneurs."

"The retreat really helped me to evaluate and brand my business so I know how to position it in the marketplace and to whom. As a result, I immediately had a game plan for how to to do this in three target business areas. I developed one-month and three-month goals and moved forward with those goals in week one! We were provided with helpful material and examples that were clear, concise and actionable, but honestly the material combined with the expertise and experience of Alissa added another level of value. I found the experience to be more helpful than I can put into words and I would recommend this retreat to anyone who is starting any type of practice, who already has a practice and is looking to grow and market it on a higher level and to those that need guidance with pricing, fees, negotiating contracts and the like. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!"

"After meeting Alissa, it was so clear how thoughtful, savvy and smart she is in her approach to her own business. I signed up for her retreat hoping to get some guidance on a couple of blocks that were preventing me from taking the next step in my company and I left with a clear plan for how to move past those blocks as well as a roadmap for what comes next. It was inspiring to connect and share ideas with like-minded entrepreneurs. I definitely recommend this retreat to any dietitian who has recently started a business or wants to take his or her existing business to a higher level!"

"I attended the retreat because I wanted to learn ways on how to expand both my practice and brand. The material presented was new; information I hadn't sent in school, retreats, webinars nor conferences. One thing I liked about the retreat is that Alissa took the time to review each of our specific needs to help us improve our business. I also enjoyed meeting new colleagues and networking. I can't express how motivated I left to continue to build my nutrition practice. I've already made short and long term goals to accomplish within the next 3-12 months. I would recommend this retreat without a doubt to people who need guidance on how to build and grow their nutrition business."

"Alissa is a savvy shining star in the dietetics profession, and all of that comes through in this retreat.
During the retreat I learned that I need to charge more for services, and charge for some things I'm giving for free.The day after the reteat, I got a call from a potential new client and gave her my new raised rate. She didn't hesitate, so I'm going to raise it again! I made the money back I spent on the retreat in one week because the strategies I implemented. Don't hesitate - sign up now for grab and go tools to grow your business."

What is a mastermind?
A mastermind is a group of people who come together to navigate challenges and brainstorm ideas for each other’s businesses. It's a place for support and encouragment, to challenge and hold each other accountable. This might be a short-term arrangement – like a weekend retreat – or a longer term one, where people connect regularly during the year.
Why attend in person if I'm already connected with people online?
Honestly, there is just no comparison in the surface level chats of Facebook and listserves versus the real-time, in-person conversations of face-to-face connection. While I love the convenience of electronic communication, I've been part of numerous in-person mastermind meetings and retreats and the knowledge and feedback I gained in just a few short days was incomparable.
I've just started my business - how do I know if this is for me?
This retreat is meant for people who have begun working on their business - whether full-time, part-time, or as a side-hustle. If you have not yet started your business, I recommend holding off on attending this year. If you're not sure if this is right for you, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where can I stay in New York City?
The retreat will take place in Manhattan, close to multiple subway lines.There are numerous hotel and airbnb options in the area. You can fly into JFK , Laguardia or Newark Liberty airport.
