Welcome to The Ladies Dish! IN THIS EPISODE

Updates (1:00): Baby girl Dwyer is almost here...or may be here! We are recording a little early in preparation for her arrival 🙂

Kate is back in PA!!!

Kate & Joy have teamed up to host a Spook & Spice 21DSD next month. Prep week will begin October 3rd and the actual detox will start Monday, October 10th. Stay tuned for sign-ups in the Facebook group - find us at “The Ladies Dish” and we’ll share on our personal social media pages. You can also visit

Interview Game Question (6:34) Since we are fans of Gretchen Rubin, and she’s been into this topic lately...What’s your favorite color or what do you consider your signature color?

What’s Cookin’? (12:35) Kate shares the recipe this week with a refreshing Peach Salsa. It’s peach season right now so make sure to grab some peaches at the store or farmer’s market this week and make this!

LDP's Sponsor - The Nutritional Therapy Association The NTA is an amazing organization that certified all three LDP co-hosts as Nutritional Therapy Consultants. We all highly recommend the NTC course or NTP (Nutritional Therapy Practitioner) course to anyone interested in pursuing an education in holistic health and learning how real, whole foods help heal the body from the inside out. Enrollment is open now! Visit for more information and to download a registration packet!

Listener Questions & Topic (15:26)

We’ve been getting a lot of questions related to did we set this up? What do our businesses look like? I think we have a lot of health coaches that have been following our journeys and just want to hear a little more based on our perspective. So listen in!

Purpose vs. Passion • Passion = fuel, excitement, gets you going… but it can change over time • Purpose = why behind it all, the reason you are here, deep reason for your existence… this DOES NOT change We love Elizabeth Gilbert's advice...

NTC Specific Question -- “I am really interested in the NTC program, but obviously fearful of the 5K price tag, esp. If I don’t use the training like you do as a consultant. For now it’s just an idea” (24:40)

If you want to hear more specifics about what we learned in the NTC course and the overall program, go back and listen toEpisode 8 – All about NTA! (Just a friendly reminder that the program closes Sept 12th so if you are interested, jump on the train soon!!)

Why we signed up & How we use our NTC certification…

Dana shares (25:50) Joy shares (31:55) Kate shares (35:10)

Other options (with a lower price tag) if you were interested in learning more about nutrition for your own personal knowledge – the Balanced Bites Master Class – coming soon!

Remember: there’s a lot of other things that go into building a business than just having a certification!

To name a few things: • Insurance • Setting up an LLC & taxes • Building (or paying someone to build) a website • Setting up a business bank account • Deciding how you will accept payment • Affiliate programs, supplements sales & website ads

Running a LLC vs. a MLM business (46:34)

Kate and Dana both have a background in Beachbody and they chat about the differences.

SIDENOTE!! if you listened to our episode with Alyssa, Kate was connected to her because I was part of a “girlboss circle” which was really a mastermind group. Unfortunately she doesn’t offer this service anymore, but I truly love the group and I’m considering organizing one. No requirements - if you are a girlboss and want to chat with other ladies who “get it” then it’s for you! If you think you would be interested, just email Kate at I would not want more than 4-5 women in the group so everyone could feel heard and supported.
