Success is highly subjective and can mean different things to different people, but when it comes to succeeding as a Nutritionist – or within the health and wellness space – it solely comes down to your clients and how you serve them. Success as a health professional looks like helping your clients reach their goals, and when done right, has a flow-on effect to help you reach yours!
STEP 1 – CLARIFY YOUR ‘WHY”And while you’re at it, clarify your ‘who’ and your ‘what’ as well. Before even beginning your studies, it’s important to have a clear understanding as to why you’re doing what you’re doing, exactly who you are wanting to help and what you intend on doing with your qualification and/or business. Asking yourself these questions will help to set a firm foundation and direction for your business, which you will find yourself continually coming back to throughout your journey. This encompasses your overall purpose and intention. Why are you doing what you’re doing? Why are you studying nutrition and wanting to help people with their health? What do you intend to achieve through this endeavour? Why it’s important to be specific about the type of person you want to work with? In marketing, this is called your ‘ideal client’. What does that person do? What does their lifestyle look like? What are they struggling with?
