Does this sound familiar? …

You’re frustrated with spending hour after hour marketing & putting yourself out there only to hear crickets. You thought running your own business would be fun & freeing, but you’re working more hours than ever for little return.

You’re hustling like crazy but still not booking nutrition clients. You’re throwing all you have into your business (and trying to be everywhere on social media!) but you’re just not making headway.

You crave freedom & flexibility. You’re in a profession where you can shape your career to look like your wildest dreams, but you’re too scared to take the leap or you lack the clarity to make your imagination a reality. Maybe you don’t love the 9 to 5 or 1-on-1 consults & hourly rates aren’t your thing.

You feel lost with all the moving parts of running a business. Piecing together systems. Creating lucrative packages. Building a website or email list that converts. It can be so overwhelming you quit before you’ve even gotten to the good stuff – changing lives.

Have you ever felt like this? ...

You want to make more money but you just don’t have any more hours left in your day or any more gas in your tank.

You feel like you’re doing everything right, but just can’t land enough clients or fill your group programs. You’ve read every tutorial and grabbed every freebie out there, yet you’re still unsure how to attract your ideal client and hone in on your marketing.

Frustrating, Overwhelming, Stressful


We’ve all been there. But you don’t have to feel stuck. Instead of spending more valuable hours Googling and Facebooking trying to figure things out on your own, see exactly what other wildly successful RDs & nutrition entrepreneurs are doing to keep their businesses steadily booked without working 60-hour weeks.

The RD Entrepreneur Symposium puts an end to all that frustration. RD Entrepreneur Symposium

What People Are Saying

“…it was after the symposium that I finally felt like I had the base to really get things going. In the last two months, my gross income from my ‘side hustle’ private practice has been greater than full-time salaried position, all because the symposium gave me the confidence that I really could do this. Thank you for (100% literally) changing my life with what you’ve created!” 

Heather L.

The spring symposium was a major catalyst for beginning my business! Since the symposium, I have legally formed my business, begun marketing, and now have 5 clients! What a fun and wild ride it has been! Would absolutely not have had the courage to do this without the symposium. Left me empowered and feeling prepared to take those next steps!” 

Ashleigh P.

These are probably the most valuable CEUs I have gotten in my entire career.”

What's better than the advice of one expert?

The advice of MANY. In this symposium you will learn from multiple experts that are walking the walk. They are running 6 figure businesses and still have a life on the side. They have virtual practices, traditional practices, and completely nontraditional careers. They’ve got their marketing on auto-pilot, clients on waiting lists, group programs that practically run themselves. These are the professionals that are doing it right and they’re going to show you exactly how to do it.

16 masterclasses. 4 days. Endless action.


Get all of this from the comfort of your own living room.

You know how invigorating, inspiring, and educational conferences can be. But they’re also expensive – think admission, travel, hotel, food, childcare. Not to mention the time away from your nutrition business. (And when you’re self-employed there’s no employer to foot the bill!)

Well now you can get that knowledge and inspiration right from your living room with this online conference. Anytime you want, from wherever you want.

Let’s be clear. This isn’t a listen-and-run type of course. It’s intended for you to take action, right now. Cross those to-do’s off your list like a boss. Kick that fear to the curb. Follow the takeaways in each masterclass & you will see growth in your business.

Take your time with the material – once each presentation goes live, you’ll have a whole year to watch it and take action as you go! (Although who doesn’t love a good deep-dive binge with hundreds of colleagues at the same time.)

“I had no idea how much time I was wasting running my practice. I didn’t know how much I could automate – I wake up to new sessions booked without even doing anything. Now I have more time for doing the parts I actually like, counseling my clients. I’ve even made changes in the way I manage my to-do list and email both for work and personal life and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.” 


“The RD Entrepreneur Symposium was an instrumental piece in my professional and personal journey.  Each presentation was captivating and provided invaluable information. I looked forward to each and every presentation! I feel so fortunate to have found Heather and the Dietitian HQ.  I am forever grateful for the information and resources presented and provided to us, and I look forward to attending the next symposium! The RD Entrepreneur Symposium was worth every cent and then some, and has proven indispensable to me as I begin this next chapter as a business owner and entrepreneur.”

Heather S.

“Working with Heather [the host] absolutely turned my business around. I was ready to give up and within weeks of working with her I’d not only built a new online program but completely filled it. Better yet, I’m less stressed and lost that overwhelming cloud hanging over my head. I would have paid three times what I did if I’d known what outstanding results I’d get.”

Podcasting is a popular communication tool for professionals and helpful in expanding any type of business.

The learning curve feels steep, but actually, with a few simple steps, any dietitian can have their own show! Your podcast may reach thousands or hundreds, but most importantly it can be an invaluable tool through which you connect to both colleagues and your ideal client.
