Tell us about yourself
I’m a dietitian, avid foodie, and firm believer in balance with all things wellness. I’m passionate about helping my clients navigate how to incorporate healthier nutrition habits into their lifestyles in a way that is realistic and sustainable. Celebrating big and small wins with my clients and witnessing them make changes that improve their overall health and wellbeing motivates me daily to do what I do. Also, enlightening new clients that they can still enjoy carbs every day and be healthy is one of my favorite things to do!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner was starting one, especially during a global pandemic!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I would say one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner is the unpredictability of income and engagement, depending on the season.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Make sure you are starting a business for the right reasons, i.e., you are truly passionate about your work!
- Be patient and prepared to ride a rollercoaster. Growth as a new entrepreneur is not linear; there will be many ebbs and flows along the way.
- Build a network of people in your industry for potential referrals, collaboration, and advice.
