What's your business, and who are your customers?

I am the owner of Ideal Weight Loss Center and a Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist. I help clients improve their health by creating healthy meal plans and working with them one-on-one.

Tell us about yourself

I have always had an interest in health, food, and psychology. When I learned about the field of nutrition, I thought it sounded interesting and pursued 2 degrees in the field. I'm motivated to help educate and listen to my clients as they work to improve their habits. It's great to see their progress, whether it's to losing weight or improving their blood pressure, cholesterol, or diabetes.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment has been to consistently help my clients improve their help so much so that they then refer friends and family.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Competition has always proved to be a challenge.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Be clear about what you offer.
  2. Excel at what you do and always seek learning opportunities to grow.
  3. Be friendly; it goes a long way.
