Episode 1: Scaling Up with JJ Virgin

Celebrity nutritionist and successful entrepreneur JJ Virgin says, if people aren’t chasing you out of the door after your speech, you don’t have a good product. But even a great product can struggle with growing as a business.

Roland sits down with JJ to talk about how she overcame many obstacles to build her multimillion-dollar nutrition empire. She talks about her start in network marketing and how she leveraged her knowledge to land gigs on Dr. Phil and Oprah. JJ explains how she’s been able to scale her business and her brand to become a world-wide nutritionist and mentor to health professionals around the world.
