Episode Notes

Is it time to start your very own private practice, but you do not know where to begin? Are you curious about how you can set up your  business the right way in order to succeed? 

In this week’s episode, I will be joined by Jennifer McGurk, RDN, CDN, CEDRD-S. Jennifer is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with a mission to help as many people as possible heal their relationship with food. She grew her business from a solopreneur specializing in eating disorder counseling to a group private practice with a team of 3 other dietitians.

She has had over 100 dietitians join our membership program, Dietitian Business School.
