Knowing Your Ideal Client to Tailor Your Business
You spend endless hours setting up your website, social media pages, creating content and programs and yet despite your best efforts... crickets! Now let me ask you, who is your ideal client or customer?  If your answer is everyone, this is definitely for you. Trying to market to everyone, to create a message that resonates with everyone or working in all areas of health is not only extremely difficult, it will leave you feeling overwhelmed, scattered and desperate for clients and in an effort to serve everyone, you will serve no one.

Learn how to find your ideal client and how to tailor your business, branding and marketing to sell without having to spend endless hours searching for clients and feeling let down.

Alyssa Labrecque is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and owner of Soul Food Nutritionista. With a strong family history of inflammatory bowel disease and years of thinking her constipation, fatigue and extra weight was "normal", Alyssa discovered she had IBS and decided to transform her body one simple step at a time. Today, Alyssa breaks the stigma around poop talk and teaches people to love AND trust their guts, helping them to beat irritable bowels, gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation without following restrictive diets and being medicated the rest of their lives.

“A wealth of information was shared at the “3rd Annual Building Your Nutrition Business Workshop”. To have seasoned nutritionists speak enthusiastically about how to approach your relationship with clients and learn from their hands-on experience in the field is invaluable. Materials distributed are an excellent handy reference material to use over and over again. Participating in-person provided the opportunity to reconnect with dear teachers and colleagues from school, as well as further network with other participants and exhibitors.
