Letter from the Editor

January 21, 2013

Dear Readers,

Anything truly worth doing takes dedication—you have to believe in it, focus on it, and give it your energy if you want it to come to life.  That’s pretty much the story of how this newsletter came into being. 

Phil Lempert and I started discussing a business-focused newsletter for retail dietitians almost one year ago.  And here we are.  But what’s exciting is that we’ve ended up with much more than we set out to create.

As you know, RDBA Weekly is just one part of what RDBA plans to offer…there are lots of exciting things in the works! That’s what happens when like-minded folks with a shared vision collaborate. We invite you to get to know our executive committee so you’ll know who’s working behind the scenes to bring RDBA to life.

We want RDBA Weekly to make you excited about Mondays, fueling your passion for the week ahead. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Content that matters. We know that time is scarce and you’re only going to read articles and watch videos that speak to your needs and interests.
  • Industry experts. We’re committed to giving you access to some of the industry’s greatest thinkers.
  • Insightful surveys. Sharing your thoughts and experiences is one of the best ways to get a handle on the big picture. Front time to time, we’ll pick a topic, ask what you think, and share the results.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be adding a job board, links to important industry events, as well as tailored content and resources from our sponsors.  And if sponsorship of RDBA sounds like it might be something you’re interested in, reach out to allison@retaildietitians.com.

Please forward this newsletter to your peers and don’t hesitate to get in touch. Ultimately, this newsletter is all about you, and as your editor, I want to know what you’re thinking, what you want to hear about, and who you want to hear from.

Here’s to an exciting week!
