We guarantee your private practice will experience exponential growth when you learn from our mistakes and successes.

We started our private practices with very little guidance.

We were both very motivated and made use of the resources we found about starting and growing a private practice.

We bought books, online programs and joined discussion groups.

We brainstormed about our ideal client and visualized what success would look like.

We still didn’t know exactly how to get clients or how to set up systems to run an efficient business.

We certainly didn’t know how to bring in a steady income.


Does this sound familiar?


Over the years, we independently, then with the benefit of our mastermind duo, built our businesses from very-part time to very successful private practices with diverse revenue streams that employ multiple dietitians.

Our growth was due in no small part to knowing the payer landscape when it comes to nutrition counseling and wellness programs, having the right systems, technology and processes in place and knowing where to focus our marketing efforts.

It took us a long time to get where we are, but when you utilize our methods and systems, we guarantee that you will have a lucrative, fulfilling and successful private practice in a fraction of the time. 


This may not be the right program for you.

While we would love for all dietitians to experience unlimited success owning their own private practice, the reality is that not everyone is ready for the challenge.

To ensure that you are a good match for this intensive program and are truly ready to take a leap, we would love to hear your story when you apply for our program.
