EP.66: Laura Poburan

Business, Podcast

Laura Poburan is a Nutrition Business Coach who started her journey as a personal trainer. After the business she created with her husband was no longer bringing her fulfillment and aligning with her purpose, she put pen to paper and let her inspiration take over. That is how Laura’s incredible business began coaching certified nutritionists on how to use trigger mapping to better meet the needs of their clients and grow their business. 

In this episode of the Make More Money as a Dietitian Podcast, Christine and Laura Poburan discuss how Laura’s innovative concept of trigger mapping has enabled her to create lifetime transformational results for her clients and in her nutritional coaching business. They discuss how not trying to fix every problem for your client in the moment leads you to really listen and lead them to their own breakthrough. 



  • What trigger mapping is.
  • What exploratory questioning is and how you can use it to take an unbiased approach with your clients.
  • The one thing that most of your clients really want from you. 
  • Why finding the source of the problem is essential to finding a permanent solution. 
  • How a Nutrition Coach differs from a Dietitian.
  • How trigger mapping can help you create lifetime transformations for your clients.
  • The difference between little mini breakthroughs and transformational results.
  • The deep change that people are looking for right now.
  • Why the preframe is important for setting up a successful consult and your ability to built trust with your clients. 



Laura is the Founder of TriggerMapping™ – a mentorship program that teaches nutrition professionals a behavior based approach to nutrition coaching. Every nutritionist understands how difficult it can be to coach emotional eaters, but very few actually know how to create radical change in these clients. Laura specializes in showing you how to become a true guide for them by instilling into you two powerful skills:


#1- How to remove the triggers causing their weekend binges, late-night snacking, and self-sabotaging behavior so they have the capacity to adhere to follow our plans.


#2- How to create customized nutrition plans based on our clients personality and triggers so they can reach their goals.


She sees our industry moving in a new direction, one that will require us to be able to work more deeply with our clients in order to truly make a difference in their lives. Laura is dedicated to leading this movement and empowering coaches on their journey to mastering the skills we need now more than ever – but were never traditionally taught.
