I am Erin B. Haag, a Business Consultant & Sales Strategist on a mission to help female entrepreneurs in service-based industries MAKE MORE MONEY. I have spent my career working in female-dominated businesses. I have witnessed firsthand the power of women in business, and I believe that the only thing more powerful than a woman with an idea is a woman with a business plan.
My career began in the weight-loss industry where I served as an area supervisor for the nation’s leading weight-loss company. There, I developed soft sales techniques to seamlessly convert leads to long-term clients. Using metric tracking, I analyzed lead-conversion and client-retention rates at my locations to crush sales goals.
As a call center manager and corporate sales trainer for a network of medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers, I wrote phone and sales scripts. I then trained center managers and sales associates how to effectively use these scripts to improve gross revenues at their locations. I also worked for a national laser-hair-removal company and a teeth-whitening company where I had the privilege of selling our company’s products on QVC.
Then the Financial Crisis of 2008 hit, and I was laid off from my corporate sales job. I had spent years making millions of dollars for other people, building their companies and their wealth, and in an instant, I was let go. That whole time, I should’ve been building wealth for myself.
So I did!
In 2009, I opened my own service-based business, Pilates of Palm Beach. Utilizing the same skills and business structures I acquired in corporate America, my business grew year-over-year by at least 20%, and I paid myself from day one. But despite the revenue growth, my profit margin wasn’t increasing; nor was my paycheck.
This was my reality.
I had 2 babies under the age of 2 at home. I was working 50+ hours per week. I hadn’t taken a vacation in years, and anytime I took even one day off, my business came to a screeching halt. I was tied to my cell phone and studio emails 24/7. And I was hospitalized for a kidney stone and viral meningitis in the same year. To say I was stressed and overworked is an understatement.
I had traded one pair of handcuffs for another. There had to be a better way!
That’s when it hit me like a ton of bricks. I needed to make some major shifts in my business systems, and once I discovered the formula, everything changed.
I increased my profit margin from 4% to 47%.
I finally paid myself a 6-figure income.
I worked less than 5 hours a week.
And I eventually sold my business for 40 TIMES my original investment! DEBT FREE!
Ever since, I have helped thousands of other female entrepreneurs achieve peak profitability, MAKE MORE MONEY, and find true freedom in their businesses. Let me help you do the same in your business, too!
