Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jess DeGore, Founder of Dietitian Jess Nutrition LLC, located in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business helps women who want to stop dieting, improve their health, and build body confidence. I also specialize in sports nutrition and am board certified in diabetes.

Tell us about yourself

As a Registered Dietitian, I went to school learning about macronutrients and dieting, but as I've grown in my career, I've adopted a new philosophy called intuitive eating. It's an anti-diet method for improving health and nutrition.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment has been seeing my clients succeed- recently, I worked with a millennial woman who was restricting her calories to 1500 calories per day, over-exercising, working too much, and not sleeping enough. I worked to help her ditch dieting, learn to listen to her body, and build confidence and trust in herself.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

It can be difficult to wear so many hats: owner, educator, tech support, marketing, accountant, etc.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. JUST START! Don't wait until everything is "perfect" because it never will be, and you will never start.
  2. If you can invest in business coaching or courses, try to do that from the start so you can get your business systems set up correctly.
  3. Don't be afraid to be different! Be yourself- people chose you or your product for a reason, so be confident!

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I'm always looking to connect with others, so don't be afraid to shoot me an email or a DM!
