Interview with Emily Tills, CEO, Founder, and Lead Dietician of Nourished with Emily, LLC

Wednesday, February 21, 2024 9:42 AM | Devan Robinson (Administrator)

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Emily Tills of Nourished with Emily, LLC.   

Emily is passionate about helping busy professional women who struggle to make time for themselves and their health feel confident in their own skin and in the kitchen through nutrition education, counseling and support through the Nourished with Emily nutrition coaching method. 

Q: What inspired you to start your business, or begin in this line of work? 

Emily: “As someone who struggled with an eating disorder in high school and now a Registered Dietitian, I have experienced firsthand how others negative words about our bodies and diet culture in the media and on social media place pressures on women to look and be a certain way through restrictive dieting and shaming the eating of some of our favorite foods. I never want to have a woman go through the same struggles I did. I want women to learn how to incorporate their favorite foods into their routine and reach their goals without having to only measure their success off the scale and eat as little as possible.”

Q: Can you describe what sets your business apart from others in your industry? 

Emily:  “Nourished with Emily was started a few months after I finished college and has been an online business since it started. We help women reach their goals uniquely through our nutrition coaching and counseling program that focuses on accountability, support, education, and helping our clients get back to their confident selves without having to cut out their favorite foods or spend hundreds of dollars on supplements.”

Q: What's your best piece of advice for someone just starting out? 

Emily:  “Ask for help from those who have been in your shoes, they know what you're looking to achieve and have learned lessons along the way that they can share with you and help you prevent from making those same mistakes. There are tons of resources here locally like through the WISE business center as well as other professionals that are here to help support and guide you. Entrepreneurship can be lonely, asking for help and building a team around you can help.”

Q: What has been your biggest professional challenge and how did you overcome it? 

Emily:  “The hardest part has been making the jump from a soloprenuer to having a team that can help support me. As someone who is a perfectionist and has a vision for everything we do, it was hard at first to add team members to help make change happen in the business and help us grow. Once I was able to hand off projections and expand with support staff, I learned quickly how to be a better communicator to my team and still get the outcomes without my hands in every pot.”

Q: Any exciting news, future plans, or projects you are working on or would like to announce? 

Emily:  “This year we are really focused on growing our membership that offers women monthly masterclasses, access to our recipe folder, educational guides and video library as a way that you can have access to nutrition education on various topics every day. We are also excited to start offering small group coaching programs inside of the business for our clients as well as for private companies. Employee wellness is a hot topic and nutrition should be at the center of that conversation. More info on these on our site!”

Q: What's your favorite non-business activity and why?

Emily: “I love to watercolor paint. I used to take art classes daily throughout high school and loved it. My Fiancé got me watercolor paints for Christmas and I've been loving unwinding and painting.”
