Getting Started and Learning To Niche Down
Melissa will share the steps she took to start her business and explain how deciding to niche down to work with a very specific client was the best business decision she ever made, financially and emotionally. Like most new graduate, she started by taking on every new client that came her way. When she learned to niche down, as scary as it was, she started attracting the clients she wanted to work with and making more money.

Through her passion for health and wellness, Melissa became aware of the connection between the food we eat and its impact on our health, and in the case of athletes, the way they perform. By providing nutritional counselling to athletes, Melissa is able to share knowledge and personal experience with her clients and works with them to improve their body composition, performance and health.

Jenn Pike, RHN
Balancing an Online and Offline Business 
Jenn is thrilled to share all what she has learned after 19 years of private practice and running a holistic based business both in-person and online. There are pros and cons for both and vast differences yet uncanny similarities between what you need to do and who you need to be to run both successfully. It’s not an all or nothing approach. You do not have to choose to exclusively be an in-person business or purely online. You can marry the two and have them work alongside one another to live a passion-fuelled mission, create a solid business structure and build a tight-knit community. All while generating monetary abundance and creating the space and opportunity to provide daily acts of inspiration and kindness.

“A wealth of information was shared at the “3rd Annual Building Your Nutrition Business Workshop”. To have seasoned nutritionists speak enthusiastically about how to approach your relationship with clients and learn from their hands-on experience in the field is invaluable. Materials distributed are an excellent handy reference material to use over and over again. Participating in-person provided the opportunity to reconnect with dear teachers and colleagues from school, as well as further network with other participants and exhibitors. Thanks so much for putting this together and making it in a fun and resourceful event!” - Mirela Cojoaca, RHN
