    Building an Authentic Brand with Guest Morgan Sinclair | Ep. 169

    What does it mean to build an authentic brand? Do you have a clear picture of your brand and does that align with your authentic self? Those are some big things to think through and tackle as an owner, and a lot of time can be missed. In today's session, I chat with Morgan Sinclair. We will learn how to show up as your authentic brand and build up a business. ABOUT MORGAN SINCLAIR A Texas gal who loves routine just as much as spontaneity. Morgan is a Type 7 enthusiast (hi, enneagram), feel-your-feelings, dessert-before-dinner kinda human. Once upon a time she worked as an eating disorder dietitian (yep, I can totally speak your lingo!), but one day decided she wanted to build brands and websites and she hasn't stopped learning since. Morgan doesn't believe in failures. She does believe in community over competition. She was once voted "most likely to be five lattes deep before 5am." Her biggest strength is being an activator, which is a fancy way of saying she's good at starting things - an implementer and go-getter - and is her zone of genius in supporting you in creating your online presence. The things that bring her the most joy in life are: eating different foods around the world, watching The Holiday on repeat, wearing pink lipstick, impulsively buying plane tickets, and being constantly curious.

She is also a nutrition entrepreneur. But here's the catch, she has a full-time traditional dietitian job. Her entrepreneurial endeavors is her side hustle. She's been making 6 figures through her job and side hustle, doing things that she loves. She is passionate about the field of nutrition and building up dietitians, interns, and students!!! She has been a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist since 2008 and was a side hustler for 7 years before becoming a full-time entrepreneur. As a volunteer leader in her field, she's served in a variety of roles. For instance, she's served as the President of the Oregon Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Chair of the Healthy Aging Dietetic Practice Group. Katie is a Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. And as a geriatric dietitian, she's been a Board Certified Specialist in Gerontological Nutrition (CSG) since 2013. But most importantly, she loves to continually learn and to help others to grow. Outside of her hustle, she's a mom to Gavin and Emily and wife to Jason. She loves Jesus with all her heart. She drinks a lot of water and tea. And she loves exercise (she loves Peloton right now!) and challenging herself to do hard things.

    Knowing Your Strengths with Guest Robin Plotkin | Ep. 155

    Do you know your strengths or, better yet, do you know your weaknesses? We can all rattle off things we need to work on, yet do you know your gifts? This one can be hard for a few of us at times. In today's show, I chat with Robin Plotkin about her career journey and how she followed her strengths and passions to build her career. ABOUT ROBIN PLOTKIN Today, what sets Robin apart from other professionals in her field is the way she's able to connect with, well, everyone. To those that know her well, Robin is the every-dietitian. What does that mean? It means she's at ease working with moms, consumers, media professionals, doctors and nurses, chefs, marketing executives and fifth-graders. What's more, Robin truly wants to be having conversations and building relationships about food and health with all these people — helping them to build confidence in themselves, support their product and promote their talent. Many of Robin's people skills and her entrepreneurial spirit go back to her roots. When she was younger her family owned — and still owns — a floor covering business. It was the enterprising spirit of her family, Robin says, that made her realize that she “just couldn't see myself doing the same thing day after day.” As a result, Robin wears many hats. She's fluent in event management, media relations and brand and product ambassadorship. She advises chefs, develops recipes and helps reporters focus their food and health stories. She helps companies expand and amplify their product goals and reputation with social media outreach. And, as a prolific blogger, she helps busy families find everyday solutions to leading healthier lives through her personal blog, Robin's Bite, where she's been blogging since 2009. In short, she's a recognized leader in her industry, with an unparalleled skillset and wide depth and breadth of knowledge. In the spirit of her entrepreneurial family, she takes each day as a new beginning, a new challenge. “Being multi-faceted allows me to bring different perspectives to each of my clients in a unique way that they wouldn't otherwise be exposed to — and that's something they appreciate.” TOPICS DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE: How to know your strengths and allow that to guide your career Write down 3 things and start there when building your business Find your community and mentor Have a plan and stick to it MORE FROM ROBIN PLOTKIN Website (Note: Listen to the podcast and learn how to receive 15% off off coaching) Instagram Website #2 (Note: Listen to the podcast and learn how to receive 15% off a virtual Charcuterie Board class) Instagram #2 iLiveWell Nutrition and Therapy We Empower individuals to optimize their unique healthy body plan through food and nutrition, and provide access to Registered Dietitians for all who seek qualified nutrition professionals.

You are going to learn about the basic marketing things to start with and then when you are ready, how to hire and evaluate a firm to take over your marketing. ABOUT GORDON VAN WECHEL For more than 17 years, Gordon has been helping hundreds of small to medium size businesses and professional practices develop marketing and business growth plans that have brought millions of dollars in added revenue. This has been accomplished through his agency, The Alchemy Consulting Group. In 1995, he began partnering with several NGOs to teach microenterprise principles to people in underdeveloped nations. This work has taken him to more than 50 countries resulting in the launch of more than 1000 businesses, 27 schools and many community development programs.

In addition to focusing on growth, Gordon also works with owners to enhance the value of their practice.

    Are you missing out on something? Have you felt like there has been something missing in your dietetic education once you are out in the world seeing clients?

In today's session, I chat with Megan Kniskern about this missing link and what we need to be doing to make some changes. ABOUT MEGAN KNISKERN For over a decade, Megan has been working in the field of eating disorders and nutrition education. She has seen and worked with all sorts of food challenges including - vegans, vegetarians, food allergies, GI distress, substance use disorders, very low body weight, bariatrics - Working with clients, families, and colleagues has been her greatest education and solidified her passion for the field of mental health nutrition; working alongside those who are overcoming, surviving and fighting to have a better relationship with food and their body. Changes in her personal life, the birth of her second son, led her on an unexpected career shift, as she stepped out of the clinical and treatment settings and into the role of lecturer at Arizona State University. All of her courses include mental health nutrition education, having spent seven years collaborating with intradisciplinary professionals while in leadership roles with Behavioral Health Nutrition (BHN) and the International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians (IFEDD). Traveling all over the country, presenting at conferences, to professionals, students, and the public on the critical need to understand eating disorder risks and mental health education. Megan's career doesn't often feel like "work", as she continues to be inspired to speak up about the toll that “diet culture”, trauma and un-supported mental health struggles can have on our lives.
