Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Murphy McIntosh, owner of CHEW Nutrition, located in Edmonton, AB, Canada.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My name is Murphy, and I am the face behind CHEW Nutrition. I'm a Registered Dietitian in Edmonton who is passionate about helping demystify nutrition facts vs. fiction and empowering my clients to reach their goals. CHEW stands for "Create Habits, Eat Well" and I'm a firm believer in creating healthy habits while still enjoying foods we love. Nutrition shouldn't be confusing or guilt-ridden! Your story is unique, and my goal is to help you create a sustainable plan based on what is important to you and what fits best into your life.
Tell us about yourself
I truly love helping people and the challenge that comes with each person's unique situation and needs. It's empowering to be my own boss and spend time doing what I am most passionate about.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Growing my business with mostly word-of-mouth referrals, building relationships with long-term clients, and doing things that are sometimes out of my comfort zone!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Learning to say "no" sometimes!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Just start somewhere! If you wait until you feel "ready," you might never begin!
- Know what your time and expertise are worth and price your services accordingly.
