RD Real Talk - Registered Dietitians Keeping it Real

May 20, 2021

How does a business owner in the non-diet space take parental leave? Well, this is one look at one person’s experience! (Mine; it’s my experience.) I’m preparing for my third parental leave as a non-diet business owner and podcaster, and am here to share what that looks like with transparency. If you have questions or find yourself wanting a little more info, reach out. I’ll share what I feel comfortable sharing, in hopes it’ll help you plan your own leave in some way! 

And P.S. you (obviously) don’t have to have kids to take a substantial/important break from work. And P.P.S. parental leave is in no way shape or form a “vacation”; it’s a lot of work, just a different kind of work.
