Dream of opening your own private practice? This could be you.
“Before working with Lesli, I was feeling stuck in a pattern of overwhelm and was feeling burned out and frustrated with trying to fill my calendar with “stand alone” sessions.
Even though I love what I do, I knew my current business model was unsustainable - I was tired of clients disappearing after a session or two and I realized that I had some blocks that I just couldn’t work through on my own. I was tired of spinning my wheels so decided to work with Lesli because of her successful track record - I was confident she could help me to take my business to the next level.
During our 6 months together I enrolled 17 clients into a 3 month program at a $1,497 investment level ($25, 449) working only 4 days per week. And even better is the fact that I’m able to take on fewer clients and able to drill deep in the work, which means my clients are also getting better results in a shorter time span
Lesli is amazing…if you are thinking about working with her- I recommend that you do it! I don’t know how she does it or what her “magic” is but you will come out of each session crystal clear on what you need to do to move your business forward and you’ll be energized and confident that you can succeed.”
–Karen Louise Scheuner, MA, RDN
“Prior to joining the EPIC group, I was stuck mostly with marketing and improving my website and needed ideas on how to get my name out there and market with purpose rather than by accident. I was really attracted to her [EPIC] group program because I got not only her expertise but also a community of other practitioners to connect with!
In my time working with Lesli I was able to create a website video - something I had been wanting to do forever – and design free challenges to get more clients. Lesli asks very poignant questions that help you get the heart of what you are trying to accomplish. She is especially helpful for practitioners just starting out who want to scale fast and aren’t sure how to do that, and she gives you the tools you need to stay focused on the things that matter for your bottom line.”
–Amanda Sauceda MS, RDN, CLT
“For my very first course launch I got 130 people to sign up for my webinar which lead to 18 people enrolling in my 4 week paid course and $3,700 in course revenue alone. Not a back paycheck to deliver 4 modules at an hourly rate of $925/hour!
In addition, 2 people signed up for both my private coaching program and bought the course which added another $3,400 in revenue and one person who viewed the webinar signed up for my 1:1 program @ $1,500 which for a grand total of $8,600 in revenue for my first launch.”
–Natalie Ledesma, MS, RDN, CSO, CLT
”I needed help creating packages and programs so that I could begin to offer an appealing cash pay option for clients versus having an insurance-only based practice. With Lesli’s help, I was able to determine my ideal client and develop packages and programs specific to their needs.
I learned how to have an enrollment conversation and moved from doing business with potential clients mainly through email to a more personal approach that resulted in clients booking sessions and purchasing packages. After developing two types of packages with the tools I learned, I sold 7 packages within 4 months of joining!
Lesli is not only knowledgeable and experienced, but also sincere - she truly cares about the success of her clients. It was well worth the investment!”
–Jennifer Laurence, RDN, LD
“Lesli has been instrumental in helping me develop group programs which have increased my revenue streams and allowed me to pursue two of my business goals: 1) increase my ability to work with thousands of people nationwide by offering group-based services; and 2) decrease my reliance on insurance.
With Lesli’s support, I’ve created several programs, including a 10-week group program that generated nearly $5,000 in revenue, a 14-day challenge that sold 30 copies of my book, and a 12-week program that generated $3,000 in revenue – all in just their initial launches! “
–Elizabeth M. Madison, MA, RD, CDN
“Lesli is down to earth, approachable and genuine. She has taught me so much about my business and myself! With Lesli’s help, I got really clear on my niche. I was able to focus on the people I help and design packages, price points and free gifts. My email list grew 3x the size in one week which led to booking 3 clients in one week. Best of all, she helped me have more confidence in myself.”
–Marissa Perrotta, MA, RD, CDN
“I needed so much help on how to run my business easily and simply. I was having trouble pricing my packages and building the program for my workshops.
With Lesli’s help, I’ve launched a SOLD OUT group coaching package, added new freebies to my website, and have even tamed the tech which was a big issue for me before.
I love the way Lesli teaches and she’s a compassionate barnburner! RDN’s are lucky to have her!”
–Annie B. Kay, MS, RDN, RYT500, C-IAYT
“Before I met Lesli I was extremely overwhelmed and burned out. I actually cried on the phone in our discovery call because I truly knew I loved what I did but wasn’t sure if I could keep on with how stressed out I felt. I constantly needed to book clients to make my income sustainable in San Francisco, which was so stressful for me because I was not making enough.
Lesli helped me to create my signature program and sell it at a high value. I learned how to have a powerful enrollment conversation and stopped being afraid to tell people the results they could see. I completely redid my website, created all new landing pages and automated my business (I even hired an assistant!).
I easily doubled, perhaps tripled my income almost immediately after launching my program. We started working together at the end of August (2019) I launched my program at the end of September, and I nearly tripled my income the next month. My income has consistently been over 10K since working together, even in December and January when I only worked 2 weeks each month. I also hit 6 figures in 2019!
I now feel very confident in my ability to support mine and my husband’s life living in one of the most expensive cities in the United States.”
–Brittyn Coleman, MS, RDN, LD
“Lesli showed high level of expertise and came highly recommended by several colleagues, which made working with her an easy decision. Not only is she a dietitian herself but she also has an MBA, which shows she has the background to engage in coaching dietitians on the business end of growing the practice.
After learning Lesli’s system for the sales process, I have been able to book close to 100% of my incoming referrals since March 2020 with successful discovery calls and am now able to move my patients into high-end programs.
Since working with Lesli, my referrals have drastically increased - in the first 6 months of the year I received a total of 75 referrals so far as compared to only 10 referrals received in 2019!”
–Neha D. Shah, MPH, RD, CNSC, CHES
“Before I started working with Lesli, I was struggling with a lot of fear and anxiety around marketing my practice. I picked Lesli as my coach because of her vast experience in her own practice within intuitive eating and based on her extensive business experience and knowledge. I’m so glad I did! Lesli helped me in many areas including cleaning up my website, helping me to generate referrals - my stress level was significantly reduced because I learned exactly what I need to do (and when) to run my practice.
The best part is that I now dedicate only one day/week in my private practice and am able to make an extra $2,000 per month with a full client load of 6-7 clients each day!”
– Alex McKee, MS, RD, CD
“I was lucky enough to find Lesli Bitel and her 6 Fig Biz Academy. Let me tell you, it was the best money I have ever spent on myself!
With Lesli’s fool proof step by step program, I was able to get clear on my niche and design my programs and packages in the cash pay model. Despite a challenging personal year with multiple time constraints on my hands, I was able to generate $5,000 in revenue in one month shortly after launching my business! I honestly can’t believe how far I have come from knowing very little about how to start a private practice to what I have mastered and accomplished thus far!
Her heart is made of pure gold. If someone asked me if Lesli was worth the investment, I would say “you can’t afford not to take her course!”.
Lesli Bitel is a consummate professional that has mastered her craft. You can’t go wrong with Lesli Bitel and her 6 Fig Biz Academy!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Lesli!!”
–Voula Manousos, RD, LDN
“I doubled my monthly income in 2 months by creating high end packages my clients love to pay for!
Working with Lesli has completely transformed my business. Sales always felt uncomfortable, but she helped me realize that I’m an expert in my industry with advanced professional skills under my belt.
By doubling the price of my main package, I’ve doubled my enrollments. Within 2 months of learning Lesli’s strategies, I enrolled 17 people and generated $9,100 in revenue. 2 months later, I raised my prices again and enrolled 20 new clients and generated $17,910!”
–Susan Gleaton, RD, LDN, CLT
“Before working with Lesli I had a dream - not a real business. I was tired of the “free advice” from various gurus and in free Facebook groups - knew I would waste more time and money if I continued to mess around on my own.
I chose Lesli because she was not only a business coach but a dietitian with specialized functional medicine training and she successfully ran her own cash-based, virtual practice.
In less than 3 months since I’ve opened my business, I’ve already made $5K - which covered the Academy fees plus a couple thousand in profit. I’ve booked 5 high-paying clients into my signature program, 2 of which decided to extend the length of time working with me and just signed up for another month, providing me with income and confidence in my work.
Now that I’m so busy in my private practice, I’ve been able to cut the amount of time I am working at clinical job in half because and am making more money for less time so can afford to be home more with my kids.”
–Lindsay Henley, RDN, RYT
“We’re incredibly happy with the results we achieved with Lesli. She helped us to feel more confident in ourselves, our expertise, and our program! We were able to streamline our process so that we felt comfortable and more effective in our everyday work. We were pretty lost when we started with her, and when finishing our work with her we had gained more clients, felt positive for the future, and were left extremely grateful for our work with Lesli!”

“Before joining EPIC I was overwhelmed and I was in the beginning stages and really just didn’t know where to start with anything. I felt like I was spinning my wheels and wasn’t getting anywhere before I started with EPIC. I was really frustrated because I had all kinds of ideas - I knew where I wanted to be and could see it but literally did not know how to get there.
One of the most helpful aspects of EPIC was Lesli’s ability to help me to look at the big picture and to break the action steps down into manageable, actionable pieces that I could start putting into practice to move me forward.
One of my favorite things about the program and working with Lesli was the act of being encouraged to step outside of my comfort zone – that was really huge. It can be a little scary but Lesli has a way of making that not so scary, but continuing to push you and help you grow and evolve. And, just knowing that you have other people in the EPIC group who are supporting you as well and cheering you on, is so helpful!”
–Shalona Connolly, MS, RDN, LDN, CSCS
“Before taking Lesli’s Lucrative Course Blueprint, I knew absolutely NOTHING about creating, marketing and filling an online course — Zilch. Nada. I was actually set to take a different course, but I got to “know like & trust Lesli through her online events in her warm, easy style and loved that she is relevant to my business (health coaching), which was even more perfect. I learned so many critical skills - outlining and planning my own course was huge for me, the launch process also huge, the email sequence and sales page tips were priceless. Really the whole darn thing 😊.
I loved working with Lesli - she is compassionate, accommodating, has a very clear teaching style, and she is outrageously generous.
If you’re thinking about jumping in, I would say, definitely take this course, do NOT look for another. The tech stuff is worth it’s weight in gold.”
–Judith Hall, FDN
“With Lesli’s help, we created a Signature Program around my niche, and she helped me establish how to best market it and successfully have clients sign up!
I gained confidence in my skills and grew in my passion for working with clients that fit my niche, and it helped me easily connect with key practitioners and referral sources – I more than doubled my clients in less than 6 months!”
“Before working with Lesli I was at a cross roads with my business and was feeling very defeated, stuck and burnt out. I was starting to think about getting a J.O.B. because I was working really hard putting in 10-15 hours a day but not making enough money in my practice.
Lesli helped me to create highly compelling functional medicine packages designed to help my clients achieve their desired results. And I learned how to effectively position and sell them so that my clients can see the value. As a result, I’ve generated $100K in 6 months and have increased my revenue by 400%."
–Ashley Hurst, MS, RD, LD
“Today’s class was liquid gold for me! I’m confident that putting these discovery call strategies into place will have me signing up so many additional private clients that I’ll have to consider taking on a partner (or wait listing them) while I build out my group program!”
–Angela Stanford, MBA, RDN, NBC-HWC
“You have been beyond amazing to work with. I appreciate all you have done for me with guiding me and encouraging me to go full time with my private practice, helping me design and implement my accountability program, and encouraging me to launch group programs.“
–Cari Riker, RDN, LDN
“I signed up another client yesterday! Craziness! You’re helping me to not only make money but also by improving my confidence and in recognizing the value of what I do! Thank you, Lesli!”
–Dorothy Malsack, RDN
“When I started working with Lesli, it was at the beginning of my business building journey. I felt really uncertain of even how to find clients and how to bring them on and into my practice.
I knew that I wanted people to have good results and it was so important to me that I was able to provide a really good value. I just wasn’t sure how. I didn’t have a road-map of how to move forward. I just had this desire to help people and wasn’t even really clear on who or how.
Together, we created a signature program and now I’m selling packages for $5,000 per client instead of $249!
If you’re in that place where you’re needing someone to be able to see your big picture and also help you to break it down into small action steps, Lesli is your person, because she’s got that combination of the nutrition how-to, the clinical skill-sets and also the business savvy.”
–Sarah Ferreira, Ms, MPH, RD, IFNCP, CHWC
“Lesli’s course, Lucrative Course Blueprint was instrumental inhaling me create my own online course. My very first launch in the Fall of 2020, I generated $20K in revenue and signed up 38 people into my 3 Month Course.
You receive tons and tons of downloadable resources on each and every step of the process. I took the course a year ago and I still refer back to the materials constantly. Great investment!”
–Dianne Rishikof, MS, RDN, LDN, IFNCP
“Working with Lesli was the best decision I could have made for my business…. I didn’t HAVE a business before Lesli! She provided me with suggestions when I needed them, but most of all helped ME figure out how to get to where I want to go with my business.
When we are trained as dietitians, there is absolutely NO business education. Working with Lesli really helped me get a grasp on the in’s and out’s of being in private practice. Sure, there were other options out there but in the end…….you get what you pay for, and Lesli is 100% worth it!!!
Today, my business has at least tripled in size of clientele and revenue from the time I started working with Lesli. I have 4 employees, numerous service offerings, and a client base that is growing with excellent client retention.”
–Jennifer Masson, MA, RDN, CLT, LE
“After taking Lucrative Course Blueprint I launched my first 6-week online course called the “PCOS Nutrition & Lifestyle Blueprint” and got 28 registrants (27 paid the early bird price of $347 and one person paid the full investment of $497) for a grand total of $9,866!
Your course was so helpful - especially in helping me write a killer sales page.”
–Martha McKittrick, RD
“I don’t have a private practice yet, but Consultations That Convert is giving me the tools to gain the confidence to have a private practice that will be successful.
I have loved the exchange of ideas with other participants in the class and Lesli’s thoughtfulness and sincerity to see her clients succeed has been motivating and encouraging.
I would recommend working with Lesli without hesitation.”
–Jean Daniello, MS, RD, CDE, LDN
“Lesli helped bring clarity and focus to my day to day. The breadth of knowledge Lesli has is impressive and I tapped into her expertise in a number of important ways. Week after week, Lesli over-delivered in her commitment as my coach and I will always have her to thank for my profitable business. I went from zero clients to having a waiting list!”
–Danielle Aberman, RDN, CLT, CHWC
“Before I worked with Lesli, I felt really torn. Working with Lesli helped me realize that people actually want what I have to offer – they just needed to get to know me.
Every single discovery call becomes a client these days – unless I don’t think they are a good fit.
After working with the coaching language from Lesli, it feels more natural. I used to dread these calls and felt awkward, but now I look forward to them. I don’t feel yucky or salesy at all!
It feels great to know how to listen, reflect, ask more questions, and then give helpful feedback that gives them hope.
I’m at the point where I can take these calls from the gym! This is a real gift.”
–Karen Kennedy, MS, CN, IFNCP
“I felt I was stuck knowing where to find clients and starting an e-mail list, how to close a sale without sounding “salesly.”
I chose to take Lesli’s course because it seemed to touch on all the areas, I was feeling stuck. Also, Lesli seems genuine, and has a warmth about her, you can tell she really cares, and wants you to succeed.
The valuable things I learned are: More places to find clients, how to not feel like I’m not being pushy or trying to just “sell” to someone. I don’t like feeling like I’m being sold to or manipulated by someone to buy something, and I refuse to do that to other people. Her course gave me the tools to know how to approach people, and not feel that way.
I like coming together with people of like minds, and knowing I wasn’t the only one struggling with these things. I really like Lesli’s personality, she always has a smile on her face, is available for help, and willing to answer questions.
I feel Lesli’s most exceptional skills and talents are: Her ability to teach, and communicate, and doing it in a fun and interactive way!”
– Stacie Nicewander, CHN
“I absolutely love the masterminds and 6 biz academy. Already, signing on with you has been the best thing I could have done for my business. The excitement and momentum is contagious and I am learning so much!”

“I sold seven new client packages and made $16,831 in June of 2020 - During the pandemic!”
–Kylie Fagnano, MS, RDN, LDN, IFNCP, CLT
“Lesli helped us to feel more confident in ourselves, our expertise, and our program! We were able to streamline our process so that we felt comfortable and more effective in our everyday work.
We were pretty lost when we started with her, and when finishing our work with her we had gained more clients, felt positive for the future, and were left extremely grateful for our work with Lesli!”
–Allison Tallman, MS, RDN, CNSC, LDN & Leah Baker, RDN, LDN
"Prior to working with Lesli, my business was not thriving. I was full of passion, I was full of drive, but the reality was I was not able to pay the bills. In 2016, I had about 12 clients, in 2017 I had about 17 clients, and my net income was negative.
When I spoke with Lesli on the phone, I knew without a doubt I needed her one-on-one, private exclusive access and support to mentor me and to take my practice – what I also call as ‘my ministry’ – to the next level.
In 2018, my first year working with Lesli, my number of clients increased by 47% and my gross income increased by 184%. For the first time, I had a positive net income. This alone gave me so much hope and so much motivation that I too can have a thriving nutrition practice.”
–Sandra Gultry, RDN
“Ummmmm - I shouldn’t be surprised but I still totally am - the enrollment conversation WORKED. And I didn’t even expect it with this client at all. Wow - thank you!”
– Ginger Hultin, MS, RDN
“Dietitians are brilliant – we really know our craft. But, honestly, we don’t have a lot of formal coursework in business – we just don’t. When I started working with Lesli, I only had a handful of clients.
Today, my business has at least tripled in both clientele and revenue. I have 4 employees, numerous service offerings, and a client base that’s growing with excellent client retention.
Lesli one of the most intuitive, kind and insightful business coaches out there and I would recommend her to any RDN looking to turn their dream of growing their business into reality!”

“After working privately with Lesli, I absolutely grew! I gained a significant wait list and had a plan outlined for my business but really wanted a group of peer support. Enter EPIC!
In joining Lesli’s EPIC membership, I was part of a group of professionals all focused on growing their business. It was wonderful to meet a few times a month over Zoom and strategize together. The brainstorming was so helpful as was the support.
Each month we would have a focused topic such as social media, business organization, and hiring team members. Lesli provided handouts and documents to support the discussion, but the fact that it is in a group setting allowed for even more ideas and motivation from the success of others.
With EPIC, I was able to continue to grow my business. I was able to work ON my business and not just IN my business! Lesli and the group helps with goal setting, accountability, and feedback about progress we each see in our businesses.
I have a solid business plan going into 2021 and feel confident with the direction I’m headed thanks to Lesli and EPIC!”
–Jennifer Hernandez, RDN
“When I first met Lesli, I was running ragged. I was working 50 hours a week, seeing 6 clients a day and I constantly felt pulled and over-stretched. It was exhausting, and very stressful.
Since I started working with Lesli, my practice has grown immensely. I doubled my prices (which was scary) and then I literally doubled my revenue in 6 months!
Lesli is very easy to work with. Some days, I didn’t know what I was going and whether I was coming or going and Lesli was calm and supportive.
I just can’t believe how far I’ve come in 6 months. There’s no way I could’ve done it without her.”
–Rhya Pachin, RDN
“Lesli just understands the challenges unique to Dietitians. I truly wish I found her 3 or 4 years ago! It would have saved myself so much stress and agony. Lesli really understands the variety of business models out there for dietitians, including how to do group programs and sell products, great ways of breaking out of the 1:1 only model.
Before Lesli, I was resistant to moving into programs and packages, yet frustrated with the one-off appointments I was getting because I was afraid I was asking them to commit to so much.
Lesli helped me to shift my mindset and to see that I’m now asking my clients to commit to themselves, if they really want to get the results they say they want. Now I offer 3-month programs and I’m in a place where I turned things around and my practice is starting to really blossom. I’m just so grateful for that guidance and that help!”
–Carmina McGee, RDN
“With Lesli’s encouragement, I launched my Clean Eating 21 day course got 18 registrants - in the midst of the pandemic! I made $2,300 in revenue AND I’m excited for the an opportunity to move many of these people into the next step in my sales funnel which will be my 1:1 platinum level coaching program. Not a bad paycheck for 3 Zoom sessions at $767/hour!”
–Kara Burnstine, MS, RD, LD/N, CDE
“Lesli is so encouraging and very knowledgeable about what dietitians need to know to build a successful business. When I began working with Lesli, my business was not really going yet, but I knew I needed help in determining my audience and target message, marketing my business, and developing a “signature program”.
Lesli helped me gain confidence in starting my business and shared specific ideas on how to develop a signature program/platform. She is so encouraging and very knowledgeable about what dietitians need to know to build a successful business as well as what NOT to do, and really cares about her clients. I enjoyed working with her very much!”
–Cindy Dallow, PhD, RDN
“I wanted to let you know that I April was my best month EVER - hit $18K PROFIT in April alone despite many people pulling back on their spending due to COVID 19. I had my first continuation program sign up and did my first online course launch with a total 13 registrants and $6,461 in revenue! I’m well on my way to making 6 Figures in PROFIT this year.”
–Brittyn Coleman, MS, RDN, LD
“There have been so many MONTHS over the past 8 years that I have only made $3500 the entire month. And, one of the patients I enrolled today has fallen through the cracks medically, and I believe his life would have really been at stake if he hadn’t found me.
The enrollment conversation we had today gave he and his family the first and only glimmer of hope they have had because I can tell they are fearful for his life (and they are all chipping in to pay for his care). He and they had started to lose hope, and I really believe the way I used to run my business would not have produced this result.
I just wanted to let you know that 4 days into December, I have already made enough money to pay my bills for about the entire month.”
–Alyssa Simpson, RD,CDE, CLT
“I wanted to circle back about the income updates. For January, my total was around $6500 but in November and December, my monthly income was over 8K for each of these months :)”
–Lexi Moriarty, MS, RDN, CSSD, RYT
“Before working with Lesli in the 6 Figure Biz Academy, I was stuck in the one-session-at-a-time model which made it really difficult to make a living doing this work. My clients would come and go and my income was very sparse. I needed help in restructuring my services and finding my ideal clients.
Lesli helped me to fine tuned my offerings to two packages and a continuation program. I learned how to position and sell my programs to my niche, how to enroll new clients into my programs, how to create compelling and results oriented packages and group programs, and gained confidence in recognizing the incredible value I offer my clients.
I’m thrilled that I have increased my revenue by 25% since working with Lesli and I’ve enrolled 50% more clients after implementing these changes.
If you are considering joining the 6 Figure Biz Academy - I’d say it’s absolutely worth the investment! You’ll learn things you haven’t even thought of and most importantly - how to put these strategies into action!”
