Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Peggy Pratt, Founder of Radiant Nutrition, located in Knoxville, TN, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Radiant Nutrition is a private practice specializing in helping people make sense of nutrition in relation to their health needs and desires.
Tell us about yourself
My passion is teaching others about the positive effects of food and how adequate and consistent nutrition can make a phenomenal difference in how someone feels in their body. From my own experiences in hospitals, schools, and private practice, I am convinced behavior modification through nutrition therapy and body movement can absolutely change lives, especially in the field of mental health and eating disorders. The direct connection between nutrition and depression/anxiety is profound and is what motivates me to keep serving this population day in and day out.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Building a business of 3 full-time clinicians solely devoted to serving the nutrition and mental health needs of our community.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I often find it hard to slow down and find time to take a deeper dive into the hobbies I'm passionate about, and of course, it's always a struggle to keep up with the paperwork!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Stay connected to other colleagues or business owners with intentional lunch dates, etc.
- Meet with your team weekly to communicate growth and change and give encouragement.
- Stay on top of your finances and run your reports weekly to assess performance and growth.
