Reed Davis Notable Quotes

“They smell a rat as soon as you try to sell anything. So you don’t sell—you compel. And what compels are stories.”
Reed Davis

“There will always be people who show up if you invite them. You can’t have a party if you don’t invite people, so you just have to get good at inviting people.”
Reed Davis


Episode Summary

Thomas Edison once said something along the lines that the doctor of the future would not prescribe medicine, and instead would focus on nutrition and health and prevent any need for prescribed medicine. Does that sound familiar to you?

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) to share the massive need for health coaches today and how health coaching is a profession of the future.
