Take a look at what dietitians are saying about our business coaching
“I need to have my coaching session with you or else I don’t work as hard on what I have to do!”
Klara is a great mentor. She is supportive, encouraging, and extremely patient. As a new dietitian, I was leery of going into private practice, but Klara boosted my confidence and was there for me every step of the way. I would not have been successful so quickly without her help! She prepared me with everything I needed to know, celebrated my victories, and offered moral support when necessary. I would not hesitate to recommend Klara for any dietitian who needs a mentor.
“I thank God for you every day! You have been such a help and blessing.”
“I wanted to thank you for taking the time to participate in the mentor call and answering all our questions this past Thursday. Your advice and input was very helpful and I really appreciate it. Your success really shows what is possible for our profession and I am truly inspired by what you have achieved.”
“I feel in love with this book in the Introduction. It is that good! “We believe that Registered Dietitians have traditionally been underpaid, often unspecialized, and historically misunderstood. As such, we have dedicated ourselves to boldly recreate our image, our profession, and our value.” YES!!!! The exercises in this book are very helpful, and it provides a lot of great information. I recommend this book to every RD and RD-to-Be out there!”
“I was there…immersed in my first year of private practice doing well, but…I needed to take everything to the next level. I didn’t have the time or energy to reinvent the wheel. Rebecca guided me through an incredible amount of work in 4 months. I continue to implement steps of our business coaching plan which keeps my business growing every day. She is encouraging and positive, empowering RDs not simply to be successful but to stand out as leaders in healthcare. It has been a great experience working with Rebecca, solidifying my dreams. Increased 400% over last year.”
“Thank you, Rebecca, for a great coaching experience. In our sessions, you have heard what I have said, have provided practical guidance with understanding for what would work for my personality and situation. I appreciate the ability now to take my business to the next level, largely related to your out of the box thinking, motivational interviewing skills and value of the care that we provide as private practice RDs. My best to you in your own ventures.”
“When I heard Rebecca and Kait speak at SCAN I was sold! From the very first “assignment” I felt propelled forward. Rebecca put a fire under me and helped me clarify my vision. She taught me the nuts and bolts of how to utilize students, volunteers and RDs in the practice. More importantly she understood by her own experience with private practice and working with clients with eating disorders the level of expertise, time and hard work I gave to my clients. In a short 6 months, not only has my bottom line improved but my satisfaction has doubled.”
