Dietitian Entrepreneur Mastermind Retreat

Work on Your Business | Collaborate with Like-Minded Entrepreneurs | Make Long-Lasting Connections 

September 30th & October 1st 2017

 51 Wooster Street New York, New York 

Attend this two-day retreat to help grow your business while connecting, collaborating and gaining inspiration from like-minded entrepreneurs. 

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 12 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! 

Training Workshops Will Cover:

  • Steps to Building a Virtual Practice
  • How to Market to Your Ideal Client
  • Strategies for Getting and Negotiating Consulting Jobs
  • How to Determine Your Fees and Pricing Structure
  • Negotiating Contracts
  • Building Your Email List
  • And much more!

You'll receive 9 CEU's!

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

Will I receive continuing education credits?

9 CEU's have been requested from the Commision on Dietetic Registration (CDR).  

Where can I stay in New York City?

The retreat is taking 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.
