Podcast S1 Ep. 3: Toeing the Line Based on the Old Paradigm

“We’re saying it’s important to be authentic to you and step into that, but also know that it’s probably going to be uncomfortable as shit and that’s part of the process.”

[00:17:31] Brooke

Much of our industry operates within the “old paradigm”: hustle hard, pay your dues, don’t break the status quo. But frankly, we think that’s bullshit! There are a million ways to run a business, and the best way is the one that aligns with you and you alone. When you find your own balance and flow, you can create a business that’s uniquely ‘you’ and attract clients who align with your values.

In this first episode, we’re talking about the trend we’ve seen of Registered Dietitians “toeing the line” with hustle culture. We’re calling out the standard of toxic productivity in the nutrition space, and we’re sharing our own stories of finding flow and balance in our businesses. Plus, we’re talking about imposter syndrome and dealing with criticism from people outside the profession.
