Q1. How did your career journey start? Or Who/What inspired you to start this business/ entrepreneurship?

I graduated as a Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery in 2005. After 5-6 years of clinical experience, one Cardiologist suggested me to take up a Nutrition course, after which I started both working in hospitals and practicing as a Diet consultant since 2012. However, by 2018, I decided to quit my job. My Spiritual Guru inspired me to make a decision and begin the entrepreneurial journey.

Q2. Kindly share some information about your Business, products and services here. Also mention your USP if any.

I am a Consulting Clinical Dietitian and we have clients across U.S.A, U.K, Dubai, Qatar and France. We have a team of 8 dietitians for Nutrition Talks in Schools, Colleges, Corporates and Government sectors. Individual Client Services include Diet Consultation for weight gain, weight loss and therapeutic diets. Our youngest client being a 9 months young baby to an elder most 72 years old lady.

My USP is not only to give the diet plans but also to work on the lifestyle of a person, to make the diet plan sustainable and workable for him/her.


Q3. What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing business?

There were a lot many challenges. I had jumped into ‘Business’ without really knowing anything about it. I personally think it was a courageous decision looking at the adverse circumstances I was surrounded with, back then. The main challenge was to scale up my business from local to global level. I was clueless how to go about it.

Q4. Do share with our readers about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties in your business?

While wanting to scale up my business from local to global, there was a point when I started getting enquiries for diet consultation from international clients. And, it was a challenge to match the ‘pricing’ for both local and international clients. I had a fear of losing existing referrals and clients if I would increase my pricing.


Q5. Share with our readers about your experiment period after the discovery period?

I started reading books to overcome my fears and started believing that I will be able to retain my clients even with the increased ‘pricing’. And it did work. I started using my blog more regularly, which helped me increase my visibility and leverage it to scale up my business. My number of clients and enquiries for diet consultation started increasing with the revised pricing and the best part was that all those new clients were the ones whom I never pitched about my services. The clients who started enrolling into my programs were committed ones who also added value to my services.

Q6. What are your future plans? Or now what is your vision for next five years?

I would like to extend my services to more Schools, Colleges, Corporates and Celebrities across the globe and also, create a platform for people across the “Health & Wellness” industry to come together for knowledge sharing and eventually for the betterment of the country and people across the globe. Five years down the lane, I see myself as an ‘International Celebrity Dietitian’.


Q7. How would you advise/suggest new entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain in business?

Being an entrepreneur is about the ability to make a decision. Decisions might go wrong at times but entrepreneurs need to keep up the enthusiasm of lifelong learning and be focused to be able to solve the community challenges through creativity and innovation. Clarity of goals is very crucial to become a successful entrepreneur.
