Building your private practice can be daunting. Often, dietetic programs and internships are insufficient in business management education. So how can dietitians educate themselves on business management? A simple and cost-free approach is listening to podcasts. There are over 700,00 active podcasts and hundreds, if not thousands of those are business and entrepreneur podcasts; but as dietitians, we want nutrition business specifics. How exactly can you apply that concept in a nutrition business? What works and what doesn’t?
To help you answer these questions and get started on or improve your private practice, we’ve compiled a list of podcasts made by dietitians for dietitians. All are available on both Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Happy listening!
