What Clients Are Saying
My year working with Margie has been one of the best life's decisions, I've ever made. Most importantly, Margie has taught me that it is okay to put a dollar value on my services. As a health care provider and especially, as a health care provider who directly consults with clients one to one, we are taught, that the only real "ethical" option is the insurance/provider model. But, the reality is, it's really difficult to truly help people long term within the constraints of that model and still make a living.
Margie has helped me with so many things including: breaking down the steps in developing programs for clients, developing social media and its role in marketing (I'm not a big social media person and am still not completely there, but I'm getting there and probably most importantly, I know it has a definite role in expanding my business.)
Margie forced me to be accountable to myself. One of my biggest challenges, was always wanting to write a book and never doing it. I have writing experience but kept putting the book on hold. Before I knew it, Margie had me writing an eBook/paperback, which is in the process of being typeset and published. She was a true pleasure to work with, always encouraging but also staying true to our goals and vision. I highly recommend Margie's marathon program for anyone who really wants to get serious about taking their business to the next level.Cindy Carroll
I continue get useful information from Margie's newsletters. I believe the links to Female Entrepreneurs Association, Adam Urbanski, and Carrie Green all came to me that way. I have a really good concept of how I want to do marketing now. I also understand list-building although before I can BUILD, I need some FB followers. (My personal page has only 7 friends and they are not potential clients so this step could take me a while!)
Thanks for all of your classes and the continuing stream of ideas in your posts.
I know my materials are quite casual but the sense of humor and laid back style is part of my overall plan of losing the stress in life and actually enjoying healthy meals. How formal can you be when your partner is a Great Dane, after all?

At the end of the day the success of your business is related to YOU - and that is why Marjorie Geiser has created such a successful business - because of the product and services she provides - as well as the relationships she spends time building and nurturing. Yes, business name, logo, website, domain, etc all matter - and they are part of the initial "impression" clients and potential clients will get...but never forget the value of YOU in your business.
What is unique about the services you provide? No one is going to have the same experiences or knowledge that YOU do - therefore use those unique traits to create a business that appeals to your ideal clients. Margie is a true testament and inspiration to hard work, perseverance, dedication, quality product/service, honesty, and integrity. Thank you Margie! I have been following/learning from you for 8 years now and your advice and attitude stays consistent, honest, and reliable - to me that is where the true success is!Posted By: Yvette Quantz, RD, CSSD, LDN, CLT
Grow your confidence. I needed advice, that I knew. But what I didn't realize was how much confidence I would gain from you, Margie I am now convinced that confidence can be the most important thing you can give someone.Missy Porteous, MS, RD, CDE

Through my exercises with Margie, I was able to gain a greater sense of direction and build a better marketing message than I could have previously envisioned. She helped highlight my strengths, build confidence, and aim higher as a result. The task of starting my own business seemed daunting. I thought I was too young, or had my hands too full with my family. Margie helped me get over my doubts and realize my potential higher than I would have imagined for myself. Best of all, she guided me along the way to my dream of starting a private practice. Today, I'm fully self-employed with a successful practice. I love being my own boss and being able to build my work around my life priorities. Thank you, Margie! I'm forever grateful.Hannah El-Amin RD, CDE
Nutrition That Fits
I want you to know that your BB101 program is the big reason that I'm able to move forward with my re-branding without fear and anxiety and feel that I finally have a business that is going to be a blast and really help people have great lives!
My biggest challenge was I needed to have programs to work with clients but had no idea what to put in a program or how to get the word out and market myself and my offerings.
I learned how to design a signature system that is the foundation to all the programs I have completed. I learned steps to not just create programs but create programs that sell.
I learned to get out of my own way when it came to money and create solid money systems that support me and my business.
I learned how to develop promotional copy and how to get it out. I also learned how to have a fluid consultation with a prospective client that was seamless from finding out what they needed help with to how to make an authentic and awesome offer.
As a result of BB101, I had my biggest month ever and had a full practice. It was amazing to see that when I put the pieces in place and took action on them I got fabulous results. I earned more money, helped more people, let go of things that weren't working, began really having fun in my business, made big changes to my business (I completely re-branded in less than 2 months) and when I began I never even saw that coming. It was through this program that I was able to receive the support and encouragement that really helped me reach for what I wanted and have the courage and confidence to do it!Kim Ravida, CPC, ELI MP

People are willing to pay more for my services I needed a game-plan on how to sell my service to potential clients who had no (or poor) insurance. I needed to come up with program packages including a fee structure that allowed me to get paid what I am worth.
I learned that I can make money without insurance reimbursement. There are people out there who are willing to pay more for my services than I was previously charging. I am getting better at finding/attracting/selling to these 'ideal clients'.
I have a much better description of my services on my web site, and I've gotten much better at selling my services both in-person and over the phone. I'm offering my packages to clients for weight management and food sensitivity services who have poor or no insurance coverage.
So far, the results have been very good and I anticipate things getting even better.Lorraine Matthews-Antosiewicz, MS, RD
A different kind of dietitian I learned after a car wreck years ago that food was medicine. It changed my career path and I got my MS in Nutrition…but I never felt like a regular dietitian. I went to a natural medicine school but life after school involved a lot of mainstream work. It wasn’t the dream I’d hoped for. But, in time, I married and moved across the state of Montana. I’m now older, wiser, and knew this was my opportunity to reinvent my career. I belonged to the DPG for Nutrition Entrepreneurs and came across Margie. I hired her and I can honestly say I wouldn’t be where I am today without her.
My new married life involved living in the country and I didn’t want to commute. Margie said “Tracy, you don’t have to…..is there a reason you couldn’t have a virtual practice?” Hmmm. Well, my own belief system but nothing else. And here I am today. I not only have a successful virtual private practice, I believed in my functional medicine dream and have continued to advance my skills so that I really am “A different kind of dietitian”.
Thanks Margie! I owe ya!Tracy Konoske MS, RD, LD

I wanted to reach more private clients.
I am a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist who has primarily worked with corporate clients. Most of my experience has been consulting in various health care settings, so I know how to go into corporate and land an account. However, I wanted to change direction and reach more private clients.
My goal has been to launch a nutrition business that is focused on personalized and group nutrition. Even though I have a solid background in my field, I didn’t know what steps were necessary to build this business. I knew I could fumble around and try to figure it out on my own, but it made more sense to bring in Margie.
The expertise that Margie has in what I do technically has helped me to quickly take my passion and build the private practice side of my business. She understands both my field AND the business development side, such as setting up nutrition programs and thinking more individually. She is uniquely qualified as a business coach to help me because of her professional background.
I am in the early stages and my practice is continuing to shape and grow. I know that I will be phenomenally successful because of the guidance I’ve received.Nora Clemens, Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist

If this were easy, everyone would be doing it.
I was shy while growing up and tended to stay on the sidelines. I needed a push to get my business into shape and saw the value of the Platinum program right away.
Working with Margie has helped me increase my visibility and gain more clients. My network has expanded through guest lectures, attending trade shows, and basically getting out of my comfort zone. Having these experiences has stretched my capacity and rewarded me in many ways.
The thing I like most is being able to touch base with Margie every week and ask her questions. I love her personality and the consistency. You hit a lot of bumps along the way and one of the biggest benefits of the program is that I’m still going strong!
When you don’t have a business degree or sales training, coaching definitely gives you an edge. My goal is to become well known and help more people. I work with clients across the nation and internationally, so I’m well on my way.Lea Crosetti, Registered Dietitian

My target market is well-defined and focused now.
A year and a half ago I decided to pursue my business full-time. When I took the leap, I was pulled in many different directions at once and I wasn’t sure where to focus my energy. I didn’t have a good elevator speech and wasn’t sure where to begin. Yet, I knew there had to be a way to tie everything together.
The Niche Breakthrough Secrets VIP helped me do what I was not able to do on my own. Margie gave me a unique process to discover the business I’m really in and the words I can use to define myself. I walked away with two main priority areas and a deeper focus. I also realized that some target markets are more viable than others.
Within a few days of the call, I started redoing my website, focusing on who I’m targeting, and even making better use of my time. The session has reenergized me and helped prioritize what needs to be done. I feel motivated because I’m focused on my clients, while also planning ahead and taking my business in a smart direction.Ann Dunaway Teh, Registered Dietitian
Founder of Dunaway Dietetics, Inc.
A few days after the session, I had a payment discussion with a client—and got up the courage to ask for the amount I wanted without a glitch!
I have the service-oriented gene. That means I don’t get as excited about big profits as I do about being an advocate, change agent, and coach. Doing good is what fires me up! So, when it comes to money, I just want it to happen, but I don’t like talking about it.
Since the Niche Breakthrough Secrets, I have really embraced that I am WORTH being paid well because of the incredible VALUE I provide. It has helped me realize what I contribute to the many groups I serve and how I can enhance this even more. Now with a clearer end point in sight, it’s easier to share the benefits with my clients—and have money conversations that feel good!
Margie taught me to refocus my knowledge and skills into programs and markets that make sense. As a resource for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and direct support providers, I’ve refined my approach. Instead of looking at just the big picture, I hone in on what families need most. Our session also opened up a brand new market for me, one that was out of my comfort zone (being a health advocate for older adults), but that I am really excited about now!Joan Guthrie Medlen, MEd, RD

I have a new way of marketing my business without adding any new programs.
I’ve been in business for over 13 years and have recently moved from being part-time to full-time. I realized I needed to grow to keep a full-time schedule, but I’m on my own and didn’t have another person to bounce off ideas. I especially wanted direction and feedback from someone in my industry. I know I can learn a little here and there by reading and having discussions with other dietitians, but it made more sense to get a coaching session.
The Niche Breakthrough Secrets VIP with Margie gave me good, clear direction. It has provided the clarity I needed to make small, but significant changes. I have not added in any new products or services, but now I can breathe new life into my business. The best thing about the session is she gave me a new way of thinking about and packaging the things I’ve been doing for years!
Margie walks you through the process one step at a time. It’s nice to have somebody ask you the right questions. You’re getting answers you may have known all along, but Margie helps you put them on paper. I’ve realized that just by promoting my services a little differently I can expand my business without creating brand new programs. These tools are allowing me to market my business in a whole new way.Sandra Meyerowitz

We worked with Margie as our business coach for a year. It was the best choice we could have made for our business. Prior to working with her, we had lots of great ideas but felt overhwelmed as to how we were going to do it all. We found Margie and all of that changed...Margie showed us how to capitalize on our unique gifts and focus on our target market. We are now both financially and mentally prepared to put our marketing plan into action and grow our business. Even though Margie directed and guided us, we did the work. Thus, we feel a personal sense of accomplishment. Margie is not there to develop your business, the ownership is yours, but she does help you to get to where you want to go...Margie will always be a small part of Nutrition Pair.Angie & John Lamberson

I never realized how close I was to walking away from my professional dreams until I met Margie. She helped me realize my potential and put me on the path of creating my dreams and giving me the tools to be successful! It was worth and every penny of it and then some! I highly recommend Margie for anyone who is willing to be daring enough to grow and take that first step towards personal and professional success.Anu Kaur, MS, RD, CNSD, LD
