    [178] Bonus Series - Hustle Culture as a Dietitian Entrepreneur

    Note: Empowering Dietitians is on a Maternity Leave hiatus January - April 2024. During this time, we will be re-airing top episodes of the show with new intros, updates, and insights.




    Hustle culture is easy to get caught up in, especially as a dietitian entrepreneur - even if you try hard to avoid it. In this episode, originally aired as episode 117 during season 4, host Jess Romola shares her unscripted account of her own brush with hustle culture to normalize the process of identifying "slips" and misalignments, and making intentional choices to bring our decisions back in line with our values.

    Whether you're listening around New Year's and your brain is primed for talk of goal setting, or you're simply in need of a mid-year reflection session, this episode (originally aired as episode 116, season 4) will guide you through the process of setting more intentional, aligned goals...without the hustle!

    [176] Bonus Series - Dietitian Money Scarcity

    Note: Empowering Dietitians is on a Maternity Leave hiatus January - April 2024. During this time, we will be re-airing top episodes of the show with new intros, updates, and insights.




    One of the biggest complaints dietitians have is their compensation. We are a chronically underpaid field, and this can create a lot of money scarcity for us. How can we learn to have a more abundant, or secure relationship with money that allows us to make decisions in alignment with our true values and priorities -- without ignoring the fact that money is a necessity in our society? Listen in to hear Jess' take, originally aired as episode 119 during season 4.

Love this Podcast!

I had given up on dietitian podcasts until I found you Jess. Building a tribe of fulfilled, empowered dietitians. I feel so happy to have found this podcast. A breath of fresh air. Thank you for the work you do in this podcast and all the things. Hannah Saffold, RD

So empowering!

Jessica’s episodes are so honest, authentic, and relatable for the depth of what dietetics really is. It’s so refreshing and reassuring to hear the issues explained in a tangible way and that truly is empowering to reduce isolation and grow personally and professionally. Every dietetics student and professional or anyone who has regular contact with a dietitian should listen!
