Is Pursuing a Dietitian Business in 2024 Worthwhile

In this episode, Dietitian Boss CEO Libby Rothschild talks is it worth to start a dietitian business in 2024? Listen in as I tackle this important question, exploring the challenges dietitians often face, including lower pay scales and limited job opportunities. I discuss the need for business skills to negotiate higher pay or even start a private practice, and the 2024 master's mandate, which requires new dietitians to have a master's degree. Despite these hurdles, I believe the pursuit of a dietitian business is still a viable and rewarding option, and I highlight the growing opportunities within the field.
