Caitlin Rise ,

A must for wellness professionals in the online space

I am an RD that is very quiet and inactive in Ericas online community, but I have been watching her grow and really appreciate her brand transparency. I listened to her opening podcast on a walk for my dog and quickly dedicated time to binge the other two opening episodes. She serves her audience well, and is extremely relatable! Two thumbs up! From the PCOSfertilitynutritionist!

A space for fellow entrepreneurial RDs to be inspired, learn and thrive!

If only I had learned all that Erica is teaching now way back when I was learning to be an RD!! I’ve had a somewhat similar journey, always with an entrepreneurial drive to “buck the system,” but solopreneuring can feel isolating and exponentially challenging in ways. It is freeing and inspiring to a part of Erica’s community, to learn her hard lessons and apply it to my own business without having to make the same mistakes or reinvent the wheel. She is refreshingly transparent and authentic and I know if we lived close, we’d be fast friends.

Love this show and Erica!

Erica has become a positive and motivating influencer in the field of nutrition. She keeps it real and honest and always delivers above and beyond expectations - as evidence by this show! Highly recommend!
