I’ve probably had a mentor since I was about 11-years-old. Granted, my mentor when I was a kid played a far different role than my current mentors do in my life. Regardless, the fact remains the same. Mentorship has been integral to my upbringing and development as a human being. I would not be where I am today without said mentors’ help along the way. Here’s why having a mentor is integral to your personal development and how to find them.

We’ve all heard the saying “failure isn’t an option”, right? Okay, now what if I told you that saying is complete bullshit? You’ve probably been hearing that your whole life much like I have. Chances are if you’re anything like me you got in trouble every time you failed at something. Whether it was poor grades in school or having a meltdown in public (hello, childhood anxiety) you were probably punished in some way.

If this wasn’t the case for you,

Whoa, hello there friends! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve written a post on here! Thanks for being patient with me while I worked out the logistics of balancing my life. I’m now back at school and although my workload is heavy I do actually have more free time to spend on writing stellar content, so that’s what I’m here to do!

As I said, this year I decided to go back to school for entrepreneurship at one of the colleges in Toronto.

HI! It’s Erin.

I’m super fired up today. Get ready for some major realness / epiphanies / stuff that will maaaybe change your life.

Okay, so the past few months have been massively transformational for me. Not easy, holy shit not easy at ALL. It wasn’t what I expected, but I’ll talk about that specific part in the future. What I really want to talk to you guys about is this realization that I’ve recently had that I think has been the biggest block in my happiness in every single area of my life.

Hello! It’s been a crazy few weeks – we have been busy creating amazing things for our new membership site: The Society – invaluable resources & community for driven women with big dreams.

It’s educational. It’s inspiring.

It’s fucking exciting.

Happy Monday! As you settle down for the start to a fresh week (perhaps with an extra cup of coffee), let’s reflect on how we spend our weekday lunch breaks. Obviously, every company structure varies from the next and each office setting is different—but overall, can we agree there are some consistencies?

Like Consistency #1: We need to give ourselves a lunch break.

Did you know only 1 in 5 Americans take advantage of their standard one-hour lunch breaks?

Let’s be honest- we’re not always telling the truth about how productive we are. Admit it- you probably spend ten hours or more per week watching TV, right? Probably another five with email?

Yikes. It’s embarrassing just to think about. That’s why I started tracking myself- I was way underestimating the time I spent on non-productive tasks.

If you’re a business owner or just a busy person in general, it’s important to understand that there are many different tools that you can use to keep yourself on top of all your responsibilities.

Ever find that between emails and that written to-do list that you’re not exactly sure what you’re supposed to be working on?

Yep, me too, until I found a central place to keep it all.

Literally- all.

My podcast. My blogs. Things my VAs are working on. Email newsletters. Graphic design work. It’s all in one beautiful (and free!) place. So allow me to blow your mind today and be prepared to rip that paper to-do list up once and for all.

If you are like any entrepreneur  (or maybe I’m specifically speaking for myself, that I’m sometimes way too disorganized) then you could potentially benefit from an online business manager.

Once you reach a point in your business where you have solid profits and are growing your revenue, it is important to consider what you can take off your plate. Initially, you may begin to outsource things to a virtual assistant or someone who handles particular tasks for you such as graphic design or social media.

Starting your own business comes with all kinds of ups and downs, but things can get much more emotional when you have to involve your family members. Whether you are starting a side hustle or planning to launch out of a traditional career into a more non-traditional one as a blogger or other online business owner, your family members may not understand what you are doing. 

Out of concern, they may deflate your excited bubble over launching your own business.
