BUSINESS COACHING FOR WOMEN STARTING A SERVICE BUSINESS
Are you ready to build your own business and be your own boss?
Do you want to use your skills, talents, and passions to make an impact and an income?
Hello There! I'm Coach Erin.
Since 2006 I've been a business coach for women who want to start their own service business.
Through one-on-one coaching, I help my clients:
- clarify their business and life vision
- identify their ideal clients
- craft a core message
- develop service packages and programs
- build business routines and systems
Now, before we get too far into this, I want to be upfront with you.
✓ I'm no dolled-up, high-profile coach with center stage sex-appeal, and a 6-Figure income.
✓ Down-to-earth, overly practical, and fairly ordinary best describe me.
✓ I don't have any secret formulas or strategies for you to copy. I'd much rather empower you to create your own.
✓ Coaching can't make your problems disappear or magically make you a success
✓ If you're looking for shortcuts, I don't have any.
✓ There's no fluffy sugar-coated cotton candy in my coaching style.
✓ Straightforward and direct is how most clients describe my coaching.
✓ I'd rather call you on your "stuff" than for you and me to be best friends for life.
✓ While I'm an extrovert, (ENFP personality type) almost all of my clients are introverts (and so is my husband.)
It’s HUGELY important to me that YOU, remain in the driver seat of your business
Yes, I’ll help you read the roadmap and I'll help you determine YOUR best route. But, I’m not the driver in your business. But, I'm not Siri. I'm not here to give you directions.
As a coach, my role is helping you determine your direction, keep your focus, and build the business YOU want.
After coaching women introverts for 14 years, I've become pretty darn amazing at being supportive while also kicking you in the pants.
I’ll support you and I'll challenge you. I have no problem making you dig deep. I’m ready and willing to ask the hard questions and allow you to answer without pressing my beliefs on you.
When you run into a challenge, I'll be a sounding board, offer a fresh perspective, ask questions to help you gain clarity, and to hold you accountable for figuring out a solution.
I’ll often offer you solutions that have worked for me or my other clients but, ultimately it's up to you to choose a solution that is best for you.
While I may wish I could clear your path of all obstacles, I can't. In fact, sometimes having me as your coach could be harder than not having a coach. Why? Because I'm going to call you out on laziness, excuses, limiting beliefs, and self-sabotaging behavior.
If you're looking for a business coach who is ready to help you build a "uniquely yours" business, and is just as smart as she is fun
Don't be like way too many of my clients who after working with me for a month say “I wish I hired you earlier.”
Don’t put off your progress.
If you've never worked with a coach before (like 97% of my clients,) it's normal to be a little unsure that a business coach could really help you achieve your potential.
What my clients realized after starting coaching with me is that having a sounding board who understands what you are saying, not saying, and trying to say would mean no more over-thinking and much more progress.
Having someone ask you questions you never thought to ask yourself means seeing things from new perspectives and having your brain think in new directions. Ultimately finding solutions that weren't available to you before.
When starting your own business it's:
normal to feel overwhelmed
common to get stuck and spin in circles
natural to need a little help in moving yourself forward
Through my unique, clean-cut, and simple approach, we’ll tackle your business in incremental steps.
➥ We'll start by clarifying where you are now and where you want to be.
➥ Then we'll ensure your business foundation has the strength to hold what you want to create.
➥ Next, we'll develop a reasonable plan to get you where you want to be. A plan that is sustainable, not overwhelming, and works with the lifestyle you want to live.
Best of all, you’ll see that you're completely capable of accomplishing your goal of successfully running your own business and providing awesome services to your clients.
When I started coaching with Erin, I was lost in my business. I was working too many hours for not enough return--one of the exact reasons I left my day job in the first place. What I got from Erin was some immediate clarity. She showed me how to create packages for my business so it was more clear what I had to offer clients. She helped me set up agreements and understandings so I had more say in the process when working with clients. And she helped me see the value in my offerings, giving me the confidence to increase my prices and start attracting higher-caliber clients. Today, my business is drastically different than where I started (or even where I thought I could be). I'm forever grateful to Erin for her guidance!

I've worked with Erin for almost a year and have seen tremendous improvements in my business. Before our work together, I had a tangle of ideas in my head. Now, I have a series of systems and processes that allow me to better serve my clients and feel more in control of my days. Erin's blend of humor and truth-telling were a breath of fresh air, and her approach constantly pushed me outside my comfort zone. In a crowded field of business coaches, Erin is the real deal.
