You didn't start your business to be glued to your computer 24/7/365.
You started your business for more freedom.
You wanted out of the cubicle.
You wanted to be able to watch your kids grow up.
You wanted to travel the world.
But instead, you're working harder than ever.
And missing out on living your life.
You might not be in a cubicle, but you're constantly staring at a screen.
You might have closer physical proximity to your kids, but you're not actually spending time with them, and you're missing out on important milestones (first steps!) because there are emails to answer and deadlines to meet.
When you do travel, it involves packing your laptop, and more time spent searching for decent wifi than seeing the sights.
This isn't how it has to be.
You're ready to create freedom.
You're ready to make (big!) changes in your business, so that you're no longer glued to your computer and stuck on the perpetual hustle hamster wheel.
You're ready to do the work and make the investment needed to get your business whipped into shape and primed to support your desired lifestyle, so that you can crush #momguilt and actually be there for your family and kiddos.
You're ready to create a successful, simple, and sustainable freelance business, so that you can take a REAL vacation and leave your laptop at home.
I'm here to help.
hey! I'm Erin.
I help service-based creative business owners make more money without working more.
Not so long ago I was like you. Working constantly. Answering phone calls from clients on Sunday mornings. Staying up late to meet deadlines. Dragging my computer with me on vacation. Constantly checking my phone. Checking emails at my own damn wedding.
It took me several years to figure it out. That I didn't have to chase every shiny object, do all the things, or even hire a team to run a successful business.
It just took a great support network, careful planning, proper positioning, polished systems, and a marketing plan that didn't leave me feeling like a used car salesman.
Those components led me to developing The Successfully Simple Shortcut™, which I use as the basis for my own service-based business, and teach my students to use too!
I now live in beautiful Aspen, Colorado, which I am SO fortunate to be able to do. I work with clients I love, and make websites I am proud to show off. And I do that working about 20 hours a week, and making more than enough money to live the life I want.
You can too.
Some Quick Stats on my Business
*Than my last "real" job! And double what I used to make hustling my butt off in my business.
**On average. I don't work nights or weekends, and I take every other Friday off.
***No, that doesn't include weekends! If you include weekends it's 187 days off, which means 178 days of work.
ready to get started?
It's time to create a business that gets you off your computer, allows you to spend time with your family, and even gives you the freedom to travel, while making a great income that supports your lifestyle.
