Hi, I’m Erin, founder and CEO of The Upside, a private collective that helps consultants advance their business and thrive.
My mission is to help ambitious professionals achieve the freedom, flexibility, and work-life integration that come with consulting.
I learned firsthand how important this is when I was pregnant with my first son and we received the news no parent ever wants to hear: There’s something wrong with the baby. (Don’t worry, he’s perfectly healthy now!)
At the time, I was in a very demanding private equity job, and I knew there was no way I could continue working full-time and manage his surgeries and doctor’s appointments. Something had to change.
I went on to build my consultancy and spent 7 years providing marketing expertise to my private equity, real estate investor and hedge fund clients, making a high 6-figure income while having the flexibility to manage my son’s health, have my second son, maintain a strong marriage, and move homes twice.
Since launching The Upside in 2017, I’ve advised more than 1,000 professionals on how to build a respected consultancy practice that generates consistent clients and affords them the freedom and flexibility that come with being your own boss.
Are you next?
