Written by entrepreneurial dietitian, Kathy King, RD, this book is totally updated and expanded to include the Worldwide Entrepreneurial Dietitian Survey's results by 1600+ respondents on how much money it took to start, how long it took to breakeven, pricing and fees, what products sold best, what they would do differently, and many more answers (88 in all). The survey found 90 dietitians who make more than $100,000 profit per year and 30 of them make over $200,000 per year--we share what they do differently. Learn how to start, grow, and maintain a private practice or consulting business.

Why we chose this book

This was first book. I wrote it for Harper & Row and I got the rights back in 1991 and self-published it the next two editions. Lippincott now owns it and we carry the self-study test. Evaluations have been very positive on it for the past 25 years!
