LOVING the RD Entrepreneur Symposium: You can Too!

I have been a little MIA as I jump right back into football season and traveling back and forth to KC, but I will be back to regular posting next week. In the meantime, as this was date sensitive, I am taking my What I Love Wednesday post and having it for TODAY! Because this is an awesome symposium that is having a FLASH SALE today and tomorrow. So hurry and sign up!!! Details below! But FIRST, I want to tell you what I love about it!!!

Last year when I saw the RD Entrepreneur Symposium, I knew I had to enroll. I was working at a University as a sports dietitian and keeping my eyes out on opportunity that would allow me to have my life back. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of being my own boss and creating my own schedule. If you know me, then you will know that I’ve wanted to eventually have a family and be able to spend time with my (future) kids. My mom was a stay at home/work from home mom and I was spoiled by that and have always dreamed to do the same. The first sports dietitian I met was in St. Louis and in my undergrad I asked if I could meet up with her and learn more about how she got where she did (private practice.) She met me at a Whole Foods in her cycling gear and said she was going to meet a client after our meeting. I was in LOVE with this set up. I knew in the future I would love to wear my casual clothes and meet up with clients out in the community so casually. 

So while I was in the midst of losing myself into my job, putting everything I had into the university, athletes and staff, I dropped the money for this symposium. 

What’s so great about this? 

  • Webinars pre-recorded so you can have watch/listen to them at your convenience. 
  • A great follow along workbook/worksheets to help guide you into the direction set forth
  • Inexpensive for all of the knowledge (I did early bird registration)
  • CEUs! This was such an inexpensive, knowledge filled way to get CEUs

 

Some of the conversations last year were as follows:

Attracting Clients & Excelling in Your Niche: 4 webinars

Mastering Your Efficiency & Increasing Your Revenue: 5 webinars

Using Technology, Telehealth, and Systems to Grow Your Business: 5 webinars

The Ins & Outs of Growing Your Private Practice: 5 webinars

 

I’ll even be honest and tell you I am only 30% through these. But that’s the awesome thing, is that you get to keep these resources FOREVER. So take all the time you need! I’ve already enrolled in the new one and am so excited! 

Here is a peek at what this year holds!!

Food Management Rotation – Food Production

I have been doing my internship through the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center. However, for my clinical and management rotations I was placed in McAlester, Oklahoma at McAlester Regional Health Center. It wasn’t what I expected for my placement, but it was actually a great experience and I liked the smaller hospital setting. For the first nine weeks I completed my food management rotation. We valentinesbox had various assignments, but I think the best one was the event I put on. Valentine’s DIMG_8628ay was a perfect time to sell boxes of goodies, so that is what I made for my event.

In my undergrad we had a “Quantity Food Production,” course, however it wasn’t what it sounded like. We were in groups and put on a catering event for 50 people. We didn’t really get to use the mass food production kitchen and in fact much of our food was created in four tiny kitchens. So, I really liked the opportunity to work in a kitchen and learn how to use the big appliances!

From what I can recall, I proIMG_8644duced 70 boxes and sold out. In hindsight we should’ve made more because they were popular and that number was based on pre-orders. But it definitely was quite work making these items to fill that amount of boxes. I had fun because I love baking. Yes, many of these items aren’t the best options for health, but everything in moderation! 🙂

I was able to raise over $1000 for the hospital which was great and also a wonderful experience for me!
