How Chris Guillebeau Built A “Cult of Personality”

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 06:16:31 +0000

Recently, an up-and-coming fitness coach and friend of mine asked me how to get more visibility online. I’ve built successful marketing funnels for web hosting companies, this blog, a software-as-a-service company, and now a chain of retail stores. All of those marketing funnels are different, but the one a coach or a consultant follows I […]

New Year, New Business

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 16:08:16 +0000

You may have wondered why I haven’t blogged in so long–until this week! The answer is pretty simple: 1Up Repairs exceeded all our expectations in terms of revenue and growth, and between that and learning how to be Mackenzie’s mom, I didn’t have time to really type out a blog post. We were running full-speed […]

Wrestling the Alligator…and Winning

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 06:25:30 +0000

(Erica’s note: I’m back and committed to blogging for 2017!) I recently started a new diet–low-carb, or ketogenic. (I’m more “low carb” than ketogenic right now, the difference being that I try to keep myself under 50-60g net carbs per day, whereas ketogenic takes it to an even larger extreme. I started the diet after […]

How Your Perfectionist Instinct Can Kill Perfectly Good Business Ideas

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 15:56:50 +0000

Back in May, I posted about the new direction I was taking this year, and my shiny new domain name, freedom.biz. Then, although it wasn’t my intent, I went radio silent on this blog for over 3 months! What happened? Well, two surprising things…both good. One, our business at 1Up Repairs took off more quickly […]

My Stake in the Ground: What I’m Building This Year

Wed, 27 May 2015 17:16:12 +0000

It’s been just over a year since my last company failed/got acquired, and I’m excited to announce the project I’m going to be working on for the foreseeable future! I’ve long been frustrated by the state of marketing information for small businesses. It’s what led me to start my last company, and, today, a bit […]

The Real Reason Why 80%+ of Funded Startups Fail

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 19:28:04 +0000

A friend confessed to me the other night that his funded startup had failed. “It was growing,” he said. “We were getting customers. We just weren’t getting them fast enough to continue getting funding.” This is a familiar refrain with startup founders, and I personally know several founders whose businesses fit this bill (including my […]

Week 5: What Do You Really Want to Do With Your Life?

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 17:52:37 +0000

I haven’t posted in a few weeks, though, as you’re about to find out, I have a really good reason for that! Also in this post, I share with you a (somewhat embarrassing) story about how I figured out what I really wanted to do most in my life. My boyfriend, John, owns a retail […]

Week 2: “How Do I Start A Business When I Don’t Have Any Time?”

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 22:54:34 +0000

It’s week 2 of my adventure in 2015 to start a business. I started out last week not knowing what kind of business I wanted to start. This week, I’m taking an introspective look at another common issue people have when they want to start a business–and one that plagues me as well! It’s all […]

“What Kind of Business Should I Start?” A Surprising Answer from A Successful Entrepreneur

Mon, 19 Jan 2015 21:10:58 +0000

I often get asked what you might think is a simple question: “What kind of business should I start?” For the first time in many years, I find myself in the same boat as the folks who ask me that question. I (surprisingly) don’t have a concrete answer to this question for myself right now–but, […]

Why “Charge Less” is Almost Always the Wrong Advice

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 19:47:19 +0000

When I decided to become a coach in July, I sought out several experienced coaches for advice. After all, if I was going to make this my new business, I wanted to know what to do–and what not to do–to make my business successful! One coach I spoke to advised me, “Charge less so you […]
