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

Linia Nutrition is an internationally renowned nutrition and dietetic consultancy here to inspire and empower people to live healthier lives. Linia Nutrition offers tailored advice to individuals, organisations, the food industry, and the media.

Tell us about yourself

I am an award-winning dietitian with a strong background in human physiology and nutrition biochemistry. I have extensive experience in multiple nutrition settings on an international level. I am passionate about translating nutrition science into easy-to-digest advice and the provision of accessible yet personalised health for all. My personal interests are in performance nutrition, women’s health, healthy ageing, sustainable nutrition, and making the world a better place. My mission is to help as many people as possible to live their best life!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I cannot single out one particular achievement. Life is a journey. I am proud of how far I have come, and I am embracing the present and looking forward to what the future has in store. My best days are ahead of me!

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

As health professionals, we are not trained to have a business mindset. I have been a freelance Nutrition consultant for ten years now. It has been a steep learning curve.

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

  1. Stay focused on your journey. It is easy to start comparing yourself, yet your race is your race. Learn to run your race well.
  2. Be consistent in the small things and keep doing those things well - particularly when the going gets tough.
  3. Stay open. Open to opportunities. Open to learning. Open to knowing when you need some time out to fill up your tank.
