Build a thriving business that rewards you financially and personally
1-on-1 coaching and mentoring for business owners
What no one told you when you started your business
You’re great at what you do. You work harder than anyone you know. But the level of success you wanted and expected seems to remain just beyond your grasp.
You always knew building your own business would be a challenge, but one that you were ready for.
Then it all came straight at you.
Marketing. Hiring. Managing people. Bookkeeping. Collecting the money. Being the IT guy. And a million more things that fell on your shoulders that weren’t exactly part of the “be my own boss” dream.
They’re all conspiring to keep you maxed out. Most weeks you're bouncing around so much about all you can do is just make it to the end of the week.
You know you’re capable of more. You know you want to have a bigger impact.
But first you need to break the cycle that’s keeping you stuck.
Successful leaders have a plan
They know where they’re going, have a plan to get there, and they’ve developed the focus and discipline to work the plan. Relentlessly.
Successful leaders work from a properly formed plan, which is what separates them from the merely average leaders.
That properly formed plan is like a roadmap. It not only identifies the destination, it also highlights a course that avoids the major traffic jams, unnecessary diversions, and hazardous terrain. All while providing turn-by-turn directions from start to finish.
This isn’t just valuable...it’s priceless because it’s what lets them create their success. Over and over again.
Equipped with their plan, the successful leader knows what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, who’s going to do it, and how it’s going to happen. This is powerful because it lets them keep their eyes on the prize. They’re calm and collected because they know what’s next.
So, what’s your plan?
The plan that’s going to take you to the next level. The plan that’s going to deliver on the dream you had for your business when you started. The plan that will laser focus your efforts for maximum impact.
How are you going to create a plan that matches your goals and personal style?
How will you measure your progress, so you know if you need to pivot (and how far and in what direction)?
How will you get the people who excel at the things you’re no good at (or shouldn’t be doing)?
These questions are the tip of the iceberg of what you need to consider when forming a proper plan.
Here’s the problem - many business owners don’t know what needs to be done to reach their goals. And, even when they do, they often don’t know how to do it.
What if there was an expert guide available to you?
What if you could hire someone to help you plot the course to your goals and then shepard you along the way? All while training you to develop the skills, focus, and discipline you need to complete the journey.
That’s exactly what you get when you work with us.
We’ve been coaching and mentoring business owners since 2015 to help them get traction, grow, and create a business that works.
Your Journey To A Thriving Business Starts Here
We turn business owners into leaders of thriving businesses by teaching them a proven, straight-forward method of building their business.
By working our method, you’ll go from scrambling to get it done to being calm and in control. You’ll stop making it up as you go along and start working a deliberate plan to achieve your goals. You’ll turn your business from something that stops working the moment you stop working to a business that can work without you.
You get a business that just works and the life you want to live. Isn’t that why you started this company in the first place?
What Our Adventure Together Looks Like
Our 1-on-1 coaching program consists of 5 key elements to guide you along the path to achieving your goals.
Every leader has a natural style, which defines their best path to success. We start every 1-on-1 coaching relationship by evaluating your natural style so we can plan the best path to your goals and so your coach can understand you and work with you at a deeper level right from the start.
We’ll create a roadmap to show us the destination and the path we’ll follow to get there so that you are consistently focused on taking the right steps at the right time to achieve your goals.
You’ll meet with your coach every other week to strategize, review wins and setbacks, and formulate action plans so you consistently advance along the path to your ultimate goals.
You’ll have access to a collection of guides, templates, and worksheets relevant to the work we’re doing on your business so you have a framework to follow and are never stuck trying to build something from a blank page.
You’ll get unlimited access to your coach via email, text, and phone so any questions or challenges that arise can be addressed quickly to keep you moving forward.

Will You Be Our Next Success Story?
Here’s what past participants are saying about the impact coaching has had on their business.
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.
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!
Helping me get to the place where this small business of mine will work for me
In 2006, I made the decision to open a small retail business called Tiny Pieces. In the eleven years since then, I have had a small level of success if you can call working 5-7 days a week including every weekend and not getting paid a success.
I was introduced to Ed Erickson of Erickson Business Coaching.We began working together in July and I have learned more than I can probably identify because it’s still slowly seeping in. He’s taken me back to things like what drives me, my purpose, my goals, my values, my strength… what makes me thrive. From there I identified, with his help, more about what my business stands for and who it attracts.
With Ed’s help I am formulating a doable, actionable plan to achieve some pretty serious goals. He is clear minded and focused on helping me get to the place where this small business of mine will ultimately…work for me vs me work for it. I am extremely confident in his leadership and encourage you, if you are struggling in your business, to check him out. You will NOT be sorry!
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!
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!
