Woman Business owner sorting ideas using sticky notes at the office

My Business Mapping System is:

  • is a uniquely created and hand crafted process
  • designed from over 10 years of coaching self-employed women
  • 100% original

Each coaching exercise provides clarity, confidence, direction and focus. Every homework assignment builds off the last assignment -- creating continued forward momentum.

 

When you work with me you get:

  • the benefit of an established program anchored in new wisdom 
  • a custom tailored program that fits you

With each client I work with, I make adjustments, tweaks and improvements -- continually increasing the value I offer my clients.

 

In my coaching system, my role is to provide you:

  • a proven framework, guidance, support and accountability
  • tools and coaching exercises that will move you forward

Each of us is the artist of our own business.

There's no "copy-cat business" model within my coaching system.

Each of my clients remains in control of their business.

I provide the framework, blank canvas and tools: the artistry is all yours.

I went into my coaching with Erin with "baggage" from past coaching experiences. Once you've had an experience that wasn't good, it's easy to decide that "coaching doesn't work...or doesn't work for me." I was wrong. Erin has a unique gift. She is extremely perceptive which allows her to bring about clarity quickly. I'm very, very impressed with her! When it comes to Coaches, Erin's one of the "good ones."

Coach Erin client picture and business coaching testimonial

I've likely spent $1,000 on marketing classes and training and what Coach Erin was able to do with me makes SO much more sense. I was fumbling over my words and having my stomach tied in knots at network meetings and struggling to answer the question, "What do you do?"

I now have a clear, focused message that is written in the words of my clients. I believe in my new message, and now have the confidence to stand up and say who I am, what I do and who my ideal client is.
