The Pursuing Private Practice Podcast with Jennifer McGurk
In this episode:
I have always really admired Carrie’s work, and I love reading her published articles in the media. Her message spreads far and wide, and she really contributes to spreading the non-diet message in this world.
In this episode, we talk about the relationship between her private practice and her media work and how these two influence each other. She combines both to create a unique business model that serves her so well!
Some of the topics discussed include:
- Starting a private practice
- Investing in yourself
- The relationship between client work and media work
- Staying grounded in our work
Dietitian Business School is a membership for dietitians that are growing a private practice and beyond! You’ll be joining a powerful group of dietitians who believe in a non-diet way of counseling.
There’s a collective energy among this group of dietitians rebelling against the dietitian “norm” to build a business and make money with a weight-inclusive approach to health. We do it differently, we’ll show you how!
Dietitian Business School includes business education and training, group coaching and group supervision, self-care, accountability, and community all in one.
We encourage you to lean into the uncertainty and challenge yourself to do things for your business that will truly create change for you as a business owner. Come hang out with dietitians that will inspire you.
