Adam Lax RDN/LDN
SIX FIGURE NUTRIPRENEUR
for something nutrishus
As I continue to aim to show the diversity within our profession, I also strive to represent all types of dietitians, so you'll see more #guyititians in the series, as they do exist! According to a 2016 Boston Globe article (sourcing the US Department of Labor) 89.4% of dietitians & nutritionists were women. Adam has been an RDN for 26 years; in the private sector for 11 years and coaching RDNs for the last 6 years. He aims to help dietitians get paid what they're worth.
Why did you become a RD?
I wanted to leave my nutritional blueprint to the planet. As a nutritional authority, I am obligated to provide the most ethical, efficacious, moral and unique information to guide the public to optimum nutritional health.
What area of dietetics do you work in?
I am currently in private practice and business coaching for RDs/RDNs.
How would you explain what you do?
I help nutrition entrepreneurs (“Nutripreneur”) go from the overwhelm of the JOB to owning their own business/movement capable of earning a six-figure income following a proven system which provides a profitable and sustainable result.
What are your ‘typical’ daily/weekly tasks?
I live my life by design using a leadership calendar. This prioritizes tasks by either working in the business or working on the business. I MUST include “Me” time and family time. If I have to work on a Saturday or Sunday, it is by choice, not by force. I must have fun in my business. If not, I have no business having fun!
What has been your career path?
For the last 26 years, I have worked in many areas of the industry. I started in food service for 5 years, then LTC and acute care for 12 years and approximately 10 years as an entrepreneur.
What advanced education or special training do you have?
In an ideal world, what does the industry look like 5 years from now?
In an ideal world, the industry will change the salary and income potential statistics by creating greater opportunities for RDs. A six-figure salary will be the new “norm” for all that feel worthy of the income.
What are you passionate about in dietetics?
My passion in the dietetic world is to guide and teach other RDs to be able to:
a) not to be afraid to succeed
b) ask for the money directly proportional to their self-worth
c) have higher risk thresholds
d) step up and stand out and voice their movements to the planet
