Why does running your business feel like you’re running in circles?
You’re great at what you do. You work harder than anyone you know. But the financial success and lifestyle you envisioned remains just beyond your grasp.
Instead of long summer weekends at the lake house or quality time at home, you spend most of your waking hours toiling away at work.
Maybe it’s the endless hustle to land the next client. Or the mad scramble to get the work out on time. Or the rush to put out the latest five-alarm fire that flared up at the office.
All those things conspire to keep you stressed out and running in circles until you’ve worn a rut in the floor so deep you can barely see over the edge.
And it’s not only your business that suffers. How frustrated is your partner over quality time you spend with them being second to the time you spend running your business? And how much longer before all the take-out dinners, stress, and generally ignoring your health catches up to you?
Definitely not what you signed up for when you started your business.
I'm Ed Erickson. I turn overworked business owners into effective, successful, and happy business leaders.
You got into business to make a difference. For yourself, your family, your clients, your community. But it’s impossible to do that when you spend most of your time and energy just trying to keep up.
If you want your business to thrive and to make a difference, you need to break the cycle and get on a path that leads to the business and the life you want to lead. We do that through training and mentoring programs that give you the tools, support, and accountability to become the leader you want to be.
I went into business for myself over 15 years ago. In that time, I’ve learned a few things about how to make a business work. How?
I made All. The. Mistakes.
And I figured out how to stop making them. Today, I’m on a mission to help business owners like you get there faster and easier by learning from my mistakes.

Ed works with me at a deeper level
Assisting in personal growth and development is THE important key in building a business. Ed works with me at a deeper level and guides in changing mindsets and processes that have positively impacted my business and my personal life. Over the past 6 months, Ed has enabled me to formulate a business vision and philosophy, set goals, and guided me to effectively focus my marketing and sales efforts. Important people in my life have already noticed a big difference in my attitude, confidence, and communication skills. Thanks, Ed!
Ed is a great business coach
Ed is a great business coach. He has exceptional skills when it comes to understanding business challenges and providing strategy and guidance on overcoming them. Working with him has been pleasure and I will highly recommend him if you are looking for a strategic partner.
Everyone knows what to do and what role they have
I really jumped into expanding my massage therapy business by adding employees overnight. I know my craft extremely well and knew I wanted to mentor others and leverage my time, but I have to say that is all I knew. I made several mistakes - almost enough to walk away from my business altogether, thinking this is just too much for a healer to take on. Then I met Ed, who showed me that there are ways to put structure into the business and get clarity for finding and keeping the right employees. I followed his coaching advice and used his templates to create procedures, and job descriptions, so everyone knows what to do and what role they have. Now, I'm feeling very clear about how to find the right staff to express my brand and get the job done confidently, so that I can focus my attention on growing my business. Thanks Ed!
I did not have to close the business and we are expanding!
Just a year ago I was ready to close down my business and walk away from my dream. I felt like I had tried everything and maybe I didn't know how to run my business.
Coaching has opened my eyes and expanded my thinking in what the business needs, what key positions and qualities are required for each position to find the best fit. I am still learning but the good news is I did not have to close the business and we are expanding! Thanks to coaching with Ed Erickson!
I can build the company I never dreamed was possible
Working with Ed to add structure and process to my business was a game-changer for me.He created an organizational chart, based on roles, which I had never heard of before -- but it made perfect sense!Establishing company standards, having job descriptions and putting processes into place will help me on-board new staff more quickly and will ensure that everyone understands who we are and how we operate. I'm now ready to make my next hire and am confident it will be the right one! Ed clearly knows his stuff! Beyond all of the business tools Ed developed for/with me, he's a joy to work with. He's calm and confident and has a wry sense of humor that I truly appreciate. I now feel confident that I can build the company I never dreamed was possible.
I feel more competent and capable
When I started working with Ed, I didn’t understand the basics of building a program much less one that was reflective of my values and my business. I was frustrated and felt like I was at an impasse. As a result of working with Ed, I feel more competent and capable. I have a product that I can market instead of being a generalist in my field. I also have a sense of relief and pride now that I am crystal clear on what I do, how I do it and who I serve. Before working with Ed, I was persisting but not thriving which was making me less energized, motivated and hopeful. Since working with Ed, I feel excited about the potential to grow my business.
