Growing a Consulting Practice with a Plant-Based Niche


Among thousands of all human differences, food is one of the few things that connects us together. We all need to eat to survive. Sometimes, we need help figuring out what to eat and when.  Enter the field of nutrition and dietetics, and our guest – Dr. Pamela Fergusson. She is a registered dietitian with a Ph.D. in nutrition and over 15 years of experience in changing lives in North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia for organizations such as UNICEF and the World Food program. She has been a member of the Dietitians of Canada Leadership Team and Sustainable Food Systems Leadership Team, as well as the advisory boards of Balanced and Conscious Eating Canada.

In today’s episode of the Plant-based Profits show, we sit down with Pamela as she describes how to help your children love eating healthy and being vegan.  She shares great advice for someone looking to transition to a more plant-based diet with their family. Pamela also shares how she was able to grow a thriving private practice by levering social media, focusing on a plant-based niche, and embracing virtual consultations.  Pamela is an ultramarathoner who has completed her own unsupported, self-styled iron-distance triathlon, with no clocks or no crowds, covering 140.6 miles in a day, by herself.  We are thrilled to have her as our guest today!
