Do we have this right? You’re tired of the daily grind and working super hard for less than what you deserve…

You’re tired of all of the penny-pinchers and you just want clients that respect you, value what you do, and want to work with YOU. We hear you! We’re ready to raise you beyond the place you sit right now, into the higher version of yourself you long to be, and restore rich and joyful living into your every day life.

Erica has been instrumental in helping me grow my business. Erica is outgoing and very hands on when you have questions and need an expert & advice. Within one phone call, she helped identify areas of my online presence that I needed to change and by doing so helped me book 5 events within two weeks! I truly appreciate all her knowledge and encouragement that she provides in coaching me. When you are a single business owner it is so helpful to be able to have someone you can trust to confide in and ask questions with honest responses. Thank you Erica for all that you do for me!! She is worth every penny!

Erica has coached me, first as part of a small group online and then within 3 weeks into the 6 week online coaching I was able to retain, at my request exclusively, Erica as my coach for a 12 month period. Together, we have looked at my business globally and are the process of further developing my branding, marketing and sales strategies for both the short term as well as long term: with actionable measures for success. I highly recommend Erica as a mentor/coach as she not only has insight into the industry but she also possesses a true understanding of the upscale wedding and event industry having been a successful planner herself.  My website was completed by Erica and her team to help me attract and drive business. As business owners, we all can use a team of advisors or at the very least a business coach to challenge us and keep us focused and accountable to our goals. I truly believe the investment in Erica as my coach is a gift to my business and to myself that will keep on giving!

Deliciously Different

Hiring Erica was, to date, the single best decision that we have made for our business. I heard Erica Powell speak about branding and online presence at an Association of Bridal Consultants. The presentation was excellent. When I got home we scheduled a call and chatted about my needs and she completely understood what I was looking for, and gave her invaluable advice as to what she thought my business needed.  Erica let me know all the things that we would need to do on our end in order to successfully complete a website project and we worked hard on our styled shoot, head shots, and video.  As this was all getting underway, I joined Erica’s Booked Like a Boss online class.  Erica, thank you for all you have done and continue to do for my business.  We have already seen a dramatic difference with client inquires, I am truly struggling to keep up with them. Our business is blossoming in ways I had only dreamed of, and with your help and guidance my dreams are now my reality. I look forward to working with you as our business blossoms.

THE EVENT LIGHT PROS

Erica and I started working with Erica for coaching last November and it has been a game changer for our business. After an hour on the telephone with Erica I quickly realized that I needed to work with Erica more. Her experience has help us change so many aspects of our business. She has helped us with: social media planning, a client management system and inquiry to proposal process map to streamline customer inquiries, automated email sequences that set clear expectations of what our proposal process is, asking the right questions to filter clients for us, setting up an automated calendar for appointment booking, and business management strategy.

FORKS & FINGERS CATERING

Erica’s enthusiasm is infectious, her knowledge invaluable, and her loyalty never ending. Since we’ve revamped our online presence with Erica, we’ve been able to attract a whole new level of clientele.  Although our previous site was still driving us traffic, we got more of the price shoppers and very budgeted clients. Our website was 6 years old and no longer represented who have grown into. It’s nice to refer people online now with confidence instead of the disclaimer that we are in need of a revamp. We have seen an increase of approximately $10,000.00 per event contract for this year. We are now in a position to take on fewer events, with greater reward (which was the goal!).
