And many times the people that we surround ourselves with will flock to these programs. Sometimes these programs are meant for us. But sometimes they aren’t. Sometimes these programs are meant for others and we’re meant to take a different path.

I found the course offered by Erin was profoundly inspirational and practical. I wasn't overwhelmed by the amount of content and nearly all the content was directly essential to my business. Erin offered a course that paces itself enough to allow for questions and implementation. I find myself referring back to the course content as a resource. The Facebook group also served as a great place to find feedback, support, and camaraderie.
