Today marks the day in which I have finally sold Body Fusion after 11 incredible years!
I bought Body Fusion from another Dietitian called Mia Ballenden back in 2012 just fresh out of University. With no training in business and completely new to private practice, it was a steep learning curve to say the least and presented many challenges.
Over the years the Dietitians working for me and myself were able to work with the communities of Lane Cove, Hunters Hill, Rozelle, Cremorne, Balgowlah, and Wahroonga. We also supported clients interstate and overseas via online consultations. Working within chronic disease, weightless and sports nutrition – We touched so many lives for the better!
Not only did I get the opportunity to work with thousands of clients but I also had to adapt and learn to be a Manager. My team built new clinics, maintained existing ones, chased new opportunities (workshops, food industry projects, work with schools) and developed countless new business processes to support ongoing success.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank ALL the amazing people who have been involved in this journey. For your contributions and time given to Body Fusion, I will forever be grateful. I can’t even express gratitude I have for the personal and professional growth I have experienced and how much I have enjoyed working with you all.
To my clients. I am SO proud of you all. Your willingness to turn up, succeed, fail and learn, execute your goals and share your journey with me was humbling. I hope for each of you that the future is bright, healthy and happy.
Especially to my parents Debbie and Wolfgang who were our accounts/HR and business development manager for years. Not only did you give me sound business advice and direction, you also supported me emotionally when times were tough as a daughter. How lucky were we to experience this all together?!
Today is a bitter sweet day. I am sad to move on but also excited for the future and the new creative pursuits I can explore.
Tatiana, I wish you all the best moving forward. Its been a pleasure to experience your journey to date and I am confident you will continue to carry on the strong integrity of the Body Fusion brand!
So onwards I go and in the words of my favourite poet Rumi:
“The end is another beginning.”
Sending much love,
