Michelle Rubinstein knows how to hustle and make things happen on her own.

While getting her master’s degree in nutrition and education and teaching cooking classes, she co-founded Little Patches, a New York City-based baby clothing and accessories company.

But before that, when deciding her next career move, she enrolled in The Nutritious Life Studio’s Certification Program, and doing so connected her to a network of other movers and shakers that helped her succeed. “The community has made a long-lasting impact on me,” she says, “and the segments on how to build your brand and interact with clients have, too.”

She shared more about how the program and how the community influenced her path, and the healthy habits that have kept her energized along the way.

TNS Success: Michelle Rubinstein

What inspired you to enroll in The Nutritious Life Studio? I was considering going back to school to become an RD and wanted to learn more about nutrition, Keri’s approach, and how to build a business.

What was your favorite lesson, and why? When Keri took us through the intake form—a very thorough one that accounts for client behavior and food preferences—I felt that was the most valuable takeaway. A master’s or even undergrad degree may teach future RDs most of what they need to know in terms of material and research, but when it comes to putting the information to use and actually practicing, I believe many wish they felt more confident and familiar with counseling/client interaction. TNS offered this support through the lesson and continues to do so with the guidance, dialogue, and network opportunities in the Facebook group and general community.
