What separates you from other Dietitians? I get asked all the time “How will clients choose to work with me over the other dietitian or nutritionist in my area?”
This can be a huge fear of what stops people from even starting their practice, and we defiantly cover that in my course What’s Stopping You?– and today I want to share with you 3 key for you to implement today to stand out of the crowd.
There is a TON of people in the world and there are over 90,000 dietitians to date according to the CDR. We all come out of school with the same education, and you don’t have to be different to stand out just Be YOURSELF
There’s absolutely no reason to be anything other than your authentic self.
It honestly is like the most liberating thing… that you don’t have to play yourself and be like anyone else, because you understand that there are enough people in this world that will be attracted to your particular uniqueness.
Stand True to Your Beliefs
Yes, we have all received the same education to become a dietitian, yet our experiences of life and our internships have been different. With all those experiences build beliefs and molds us and how we practice. Choosing to embrace all your life experience and stand true to those education roots of evidence-based science alongside what you believe to be true helps you to stand out and allows your clients to feel your authenticity!
Lead with Your Purpose
I can remember when I started my company over 10 years ago, my dad GL, who is also my mentor, told me there is no passion in business. We would argue this all the time, and I am pretty sure I have convinced him that without passion and knowing your purpose it makes running a practice not as fulfilling.
I encourage all my student of the iLiveWell Business Academy to lead with their purpose. If you are not sure of your purpose to ask yourself:
WHY are you doing the work you are doing?
What is is about seeing clients that fill you up?
What was the best part of your day at your practice?
Knowing your purpose brings about more fulfillment and joy along with bringing in alignment to yourself. For me, my purpose is to build up YOU! I built and continue to build my companies to create better access to dietitians by teaching RD’s how to overcome fears, start a practice and CRUSH it!
There’s enough people that will be into you exactly the way you are.
