About Erin: I grew up a shy person—a real roadblock, considering the only way I could reach my biggest dreams is by connecting with people. I’ve spent the past ten years growing my confidence through mentoring, inner work, and a dedication to challenging my comfort zone. Now, I love guiding and supporting women like me toward the same. To support thousands of shy, introverted women entrepreneurs to step past their fears of being seen and heard, into confidence, to shine their light, making a bigger impact with their business, and in their bank account.
By transforming the negative belief, “I’m not good-enough,” into experiences of self-love and value to others, we open possibility. Every day we enlarge our view of the world, trust ourselves and others a little deeper, our brilliance in the world grows. By reaching past fear and working together we make every action easier and outcome matter even more.
Words of Wisdom from Erin
You have something unique to share with the world. If you are shy or introverted, fears of being judged or criticized can make you hide your gifts. Does moving forward sometimes feel incredibly hard, like you’re stuck in a web of insecurity?
If you’re feeling stuck or scared, ask yourself:
What’s the worst thing that can happen if I take a first, baby step out of my comfort zone (even a big leap)?
What’s my fear?
What good results might I create if I take the chance anyway?
What might I miss out on (or the world miss out on), if I let my fears decide?
You have a message, mission, and impact to make, but only YOU can make the difference YOU were born to make. It can’t happen if you stay hidden where no one can find you. Your peeps are waiting for you. You’re not alone. Be courageous, embrace the challenge, and share your light and love with the world.
