The Successfully Simple Circle™
A collective for service-based creative entrepreneurs who are ready to succeed.
Get the Support and accountability you need.
Simplify your business to support your version of success and create a plan to reach it.
Create a Signature service clients can't wait to buy.
Systematize your work so you spend less time in front of the computer.
Sell your service with a simple marketing plan that doesn't make you feel sleazy or stressed.
The Successfully Simple Circle™ is an intentionally small, curated, community of service-based creative entrepreneurs.
Like you, they are driven to succeed, following their own rules and definition of what "success" looks like, not what some internet "guru" tells them they need to do or be in order to be successful.
Circle members are dedicated to creating a Successfully Simple business that works for them, creating and supporting the life they truly want to live--not being glued to their computers 24/7/365 just to hit income goals they can't even enjoy.
If you're ready to create a business that doesn't leave you stressed out, but does leave you with tons of freedom, you're ready for the support that the Circle provides.
Does this sound like your life currently?
❌ You thought you could do this alone, but no one understands how hard it is, and you've got no support.
❌ You started your business for more freedom, but you're working more than ever, for less than you should be getting paid.
❌ Every project is different, meaning it's really hard to juggle projects, handle scope creep, and not under-charge.
❌ Projects are disorganized, and you're responding to clients in your email, on Facebook, via text message, and they're even hitting you up on Instagram.
❌ Marketing is difficult, and leaves you feeling like a sleazy used-car salesman, so you do it a lot less than you should.
You're not alone.
Not when you join the Circle.
The Successfully Simple Circle is a hands-on, year-long, group program for creative business owners, based on a finely tuned five-part framework. You'll join an intentionally small collective designed to get you out of the overwhelm swamp and focused on the things that will actually move the needle for you in your business.
The Successfully Simple Circle is based on The Successfully Simple Shortcut, which is my system for creating a successful service-based business without stress.
Here's how it works:
Pillar One: Support
The SS Circle isn't a course where you're thrown in on your own, and left to figure things out.
Support really begins as soon as you join the Circle, because you'll gain access to an intentionally small community of other business owners who are creating their successfully simple businesses.
Instead of group calls where you can only get support if you show up at a certain time (which never works) you'll be able to post in the group whenever you want, and get feedback and support--often via video--that you can read or watch at a time that works for you.
This isn't your average FB group. This is a community of your new business besties, a circle of support, and soon-to-be your favorite place on the internet.
Pillar Two: Simplify
Chances are, you’re doing way too many things in your business and it’s holding you back.
In Simplify, we’ll redefine success and what it really means to YOU (not some internet guru), eliminate the things in your business that are eating up your time for little or no results, drill down into what is working so you can focus on those efforts, and set goals you’ll actually be able to achieve.
Pillar Three: Signature
What are you known for? Without a signature service, you might not be known for anything.
In Signature, we’ll create your signature service. Not only will this help you get your name out there and tell people what you do, it’ll make your marketing and workload a LOT easier and allow you to charge those premium prices you’ve been dreaming of. With your new signature service, you’ll be attracting clients who are saying “YES,” before they ever fill out your inquiry form.
Oh, and did someone say "recurring revenue?" I didn't, but I will. A lot. Because we're gonna set you up with some of that.
Pillar Four: Systematize
How organized is your business? What’s your customer experience like? With sloppy (or no) systems, projects get off-track, drag on for far too long, and clients get grumpy.
In Systematize, we’ll organize your processes so that your projects run smoothly, you AND your clients always know what’s included and happening next, and when you wrap up your projects you’re left with raving fans who refer others your way.
Pillar Five: Sell
Are consistent clients a problem? Without consistent clients, you’re on a constant roller coaster of income--and not a fun roller coaster, a rickety one where you feel like you might fall out at any minute.
In Sell, we’ll create your personalized marketing plan for consistent clients so that you get booked out in advance, can project your monthly income, and can take a deep sigh of relief as you step off the income roller coaster and onto the lazy river of client inquiries.
This is the exact framework that I follow and revisit every year, to keep my web design business running smoothly and clients coming in.
But that doesn’t mean you’ll be doing exactly what I do, it means you’ll be working with me and your peers to create your OWN personalized plan for success following the shortcut as a guide.
Business isn’t one-size-fits-all, and the Successfully Simple Shortcut is designed to be flexible for any type of creative service-based business.
What You Get in the Circle
The Circle is a high-touch, interactive community with supporting video trainings.
Inside the Circle is the only way to get access to my full training program on The Successfully Simple Shortcut.
Delivered in easily digestible and actionable video and text lessons (I know not all of you have time to watch videos!), you'll learn how to implement the Shortcut into your own business.
Find your new business besties, great collaboration opportunities, and your personal network of support that gets it inside the Circle community.
This isn't a free Facebook group full of unfocused hobbyists, or guru-regurgitators*, this is a curated community of creative business owners driven by the desire to create a business that supports their dreams.
Inside the private Facebook community you’ll not only be surrounded by your peers, but you’ll also get individualized help.
Each month you’ll be held accountable for achieving the goals you set. You’ll get the opportunity to receive feedback on your website, sales pages, packages, or anything else you’re working on.
*You know, those people who are so obsessed with some big name guru that all they do is repeat the guru's philosophies with no thought to how every business is different and what works for them may not be even remotely applicable in your situation? Blech.
The Successfully Simple Circle™ is NOT a course!
You don’t need any more of those, getting dusty on your digital bookshelf.
While there are video trainings, they are supplemental to the community and support. The real value is in the community!
The Successfully Simple Circle™ is NOT a traditional group program.
There are no weekly or monthly calls to show up to.
I know it’s hard to make a call when you’ve got clients to juggle, babies to nap, or you’re on the other side of the world. That’s why you can post questions or content for feedback at any time, and get a video response that you can watch at a time that works for you.
Because business questions don’t just come up at 2pm EST on a Tuesday.
Okay, hold up, who ARE you?
I’m Erin, and I’ve been where you are.
Once upon a time I was an overwhelmed creative business owner like you. My computer went with me everywhere. I checked emails a million times a day. I was doing ALL THE THINGS.
And it wasn't very profitable.
Until I started doing less.
Now, I help creatives (like you!) build successful, profitable, and sustainable businesses by streamlining their processes, communicating clearly, and delivering incredible value. I believe that your business should work for you, creating more freedom in your life.
As a web designer I've been able to create hundreds of websites and help clients multiply their conversions and profits. As an instructor I’ve had the honor of teaching over 10,000 students to work more efficiently, crush their income goals, and spend less time in front of their screens.
I want to help you too.
Imagine what your life will be like when…
You have the support you need
You're surrounded by others who have big dreams, and serious plans.
You get feedback and advice so you're confident you're on the right path.
You're held accountable so you accomplish what you said you were going to.
You have a new group of business besties, that you can turn to whenever you need help.
You’re no longer doing the hustle
You have clear goals based around YOUR life and business.
Whether that’s six figures--or not--you’ve got actual numbers to aim for.
You only offer the services you love (and that bring in the most money).
And more importantly, you HAVE the time and freedom to spend with family, friends, or traveling the world. Guilt-free.
You have consistent clients
And they’re lined up, waiting to hand you money for your signature service that answers their problems.
You’re booked out in advance, and can predict your income, no longer stressing about whether or not you’ll hit your income goals.
Marketing is no longer something you dread!
Your work takes a lot less time
You've got clear systems and processes in place.
Your clients give you what you need, on time.
Scope creep is a thing of the past.
And you can finally get down to part-time work, without sacrificing any income.
Selling is simple
No more marketing to crickets, or feeling like a used car salesman every time you try to sell.
Instead, you have a simple marketing plan to follow that not only feels good, but gets clients excited to work with you, bringing them in whenever you need to fill spots in your schedule.
Your business works for you
Without a giant team.
And with a lot LESS stress, time, and effort.
Because girl? You’ve got clarity.
Wait a second here, is this for me?
At this point, you’ve made it pretty far down the page and you’re probably wondering, “This sounds gosh darn lovely. But is this program the right fit for me?” (That’s exactly what your inner voice sounds like, right?)
Here’s who the SS Circle is for:
- Designers, copywriters, social media managers, coaches, or other service-based creative business owners and are feeling overwhelmed with their businesses
- Creative business owners of all levels who are ready to simplify their businesses and be successful.
- Creative business owners who are self-motivated, READY to make a change, and who are willing to do the work--I’m going to give you the framework, but you have to implement it.
- Creative business owners who want to be held accountable and get feedback and support on what they’re working on.
