The Pursuing Private Practice Podcast with Jennifer McGurk
Jen Haefele is a member of the Pursuing Private Practice program, and I absolutely love the energy she brings to the group. This interview is a true reflection of her positive energy. She talks about her goals and dreams, and she talks about the future of her career.
I love to talk with dietitians who are in her position – she is just beginning her journey into private practice. I tend to interview dietitians who are further along in their journeys, but I really want to start featuring more dietitians who are in the beginning stages of their businesses. It is so exciting to hear what they are doing now to build their businesses AND what their goals and dreams are for the future.
Jen has some really unique and fun ideas in her “parking lot” of ideas for the future, and I cannot wait to see what she does with her business in the coming months!
Some of the topics discussed include:
- Jen’s numerous college degrees and what ultimately drove her to her work within Intuitive Eating.
- The most critical marketing steps to take when launching your private practice
- The challenge of dividing time between working for someone else and starting your own private practice
- Incorporating physical exercise with dietetic counseling
This episode of Pursuing Private Practice is sponsored by Jennifer’s free training, The Five Essential Business Strategies for Growth. Jennifer will teach you her own proven strategies to help you make money and make an impact in the world without all of the confusion or overwhelm. You will walk away from the training with your own personalized plan to get new clients to your private practice (and keep them coming back!). Sign up here!
