How to Become a Successful Dietitian Without Starting a Private Practice


Can you create success outside of owning a private practice as a dietitian? Absolutely! In today’s video, we'll explore how to achieve that. Let's dive into the first step: defining success. What does it mean to you? Picture your future as a registered dietitian.

One of the quickest ways to start is through continuing education credits. I began by exploring CEU-approved courses related to business, like an email marketing course by dietitian business coach Amy Sowers. This opened my eyes to the vast possibilities in dietetics and business. I encourage you to explore continuing education credits in our library, which offers a variety of topics to enhance your skills and knowledge.

Private practice, often misunderstood, simply means not being owned by a government entity—you’re your own boss! This could include running a membership program, selling courses, or engaging in affiliate marketing and brand sponsorships. There are countless options for dietitians to explore.
