Start-Up and Scale Summit for Nutrition Practitioners

Ready to launch and grow your nutrition business?!

Starts Tuesday 15th November

Are you a recently qualified nutrition practitioner who is grappling with the long list of actions you need to take to launch your nutrition business? Or perhaps you graduated some time ago, took a well -deserved break and then life got in the way, so you haven’t really got going yet. Or you may already have an embryonic nutrition practice, but your earnings are inconsistent, only a few hundred pounds each month, and you’re wondering how you can build on this to generate a decent living doing what you love?

We understand the challenges of the current economic climate and that you may need  to make more money to contribute to the family budget. This can lead to feelings of pressure and overwhelm and make the idea of running your own business seem daunting and difficult.

This is exactly why we created the Start-Up & Scale Summit for Nutrition Professionals.

We will share with you the essential steps that will get your nutrition business off the ground and consistently attract those all-important fee-paying clients.

Our expert mentors at Zest4life know exactly what works in challenging business climates: a clear set of priorities and committed action.

We supported a wide range of very successful Nutrition practitioners during lockdown and the common link was they all had a strong sense of purpose and a clear plan and they focussed on serving their clients. Not procrastinating or baking sourdough!

The Start-Up and Scale Summit will set you up for success in 2023

Tuesday 15th November at 12.30pm

Blueprint for starting-up your business

You’ve put in several hard years of study at nutrition college – most likely

juggling family life, a job and lockdowns at the same time. You now have your

professional qualification in your hand and it’s time to start your business.

But where do you start?

You’ll walk away from today’s session having learnt how to: 


  • Define Start-Up priorities (hint: the shade of blue for your logo will not be top of your list)

  • Put in place the legal and statutory basics.

  • Identify the pros and cons of at home, virtual, and external clinic spaces; and decide which is the best option for you.

  • Choose the essential platforms for running your business

  • Understand the benefits of using a clinic management system, for managing appointments, records, notes, invoicing and following up with clients so you can free up your time.

Helen Moynihan will take you through practical, and simple to implement processes and methods to help you to create a business that is not only profitable, but that you love, and that brings you joy; so that you can support your clients in the right way for you both.

Once the foundations are in place you will be ready for clients and yes, you can start seeing clients without a stunning website or thousands of followers on social media. (These come later!)
