What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • Strong relationships are crucial for converting observers into clients. Engage in conversations, ask questions, and show empathy to nurture connections.
  • Starting Locally: When you're just starting, leverage your existing network of friends and family. Shift conversations with them to include nutrition topics or ask for referrals.
  • How to create a content calendar outlining your strategy for regular posts, videos, or lives. Consistent content helps maintain engagement with your audience.
