“She saw in us what we had never seen in ourselves and somehow we came to believe in what she saw.”
My internal compass had slowly been recalibrating for a number of months. On a very visceral level, I knew it was my time. Furthermore, I sensed that you were the one to accompany and guide me through this journey. My intuition was spot on.
My biggest takeaway is to trust my internal compass and that everything I need to be the absolute best version of myself is already within me and surrounding me. I can tune in to the energy that is already present by aligning my emotions with my goals and then taking action that supports my moving forward…closer to my desires.
I now also have come to realize that those that I know and love, even those that I’m close to, cannot be persuaded to join me on this journey…they have their own path to take…some may take my hand and others may walk away…but I know now that it’s not my responsibility to steer them in my direction.
I built a resort in the South Pacific when I was 65. I am now 75 and I felt the need for support and inspiration. We swim with humpback whales for 3 months (half of July, August, September and half of October) and are fully booked but then take 9 months off.
I was thinking of doing 3 months here and building a wellness retreat in Tucson, close to family, and do a 3 month business there. However, having either place dormant for 9 months is not good for the property or employees.
I felt the need for support in the decision making process. I wanted help to find and release my blocks to making money.
Working with someone who knows they are a work in progress is so great, as we all are no matter how old we are. I am so proud of you and what you are doing.
I have learned to act on opportunities and to say yes to what feels right and no to what does not.
There are so many things I have learnt through your guidance, the biggest being a shift in perception of myself and what I am capable of. I have quite a journey ahead but with the tools you’ve given me I now know I’m in the strongest position to accomplish bigger and better things.
Distilling everything down to 1 nugget = If it’s not 100% yes, it’s a no. That means what & who I invest my time in, how I act, with whom I interact (who I consider my friends), how much I charge for my professional services (am I charging what I am worth?) how long I spend doing anything, and last but certainly not least, collateral damage.
My biggest takeaway was the “importance of cleaning up collateral damage.” As a result of this teaching, I undertook, during the period of this course, to address/resolve a painful betrayal issue with a good friend. The steps were taken, and I am at peace.

I actually didn’t know what to expect when I signed up. I felt drawn to Erin and somehow my inner guidance system (which I would learn more about) guided me to take this – so I said Yes and signed up. Thankfully I listened.
My biggest takeaway was cleaning up my collateral damage – I had no idea how much this has been blocking me and my health. Learning to trust and be guided by my inner guidance system.

Erin is brilliant in her ideas and though she calls herself shy she is an excellent teacher with her bags full of entrepreneurial tricks and tools.
