Meet the Founder

Erin founded POWER at the beginning of 2018 when she kept meeting the most inspiring and incredible women. At the time she thought, what would happen if we came together as a group once a month to learn how we could work together and empower one another? Hence POWER was born.

Our Beliefs

Sisterhood over Competition

We have seen first-hand the immense power of working together to help each other rise. When we empower versus compete, we can experience the most authentic form of connection and feel the mindset shift that presents itself to us.

Every Voice is Heard

At POWER, we encourage vulnerable storytelling and offer a space to share your truth. This can include asking the community for help, celebrating your wins, finding the lessons in your mistakes, and spreading your knowledge. Whatever you feel the need to say, your sisters at POWER are here to listen and support you.

Empower your Talents

Discovering your own unique gifts will change your life. Gaining confidence for what you offer to the world and how you are of service for others can move you into a whole new sense of the amazing person you are.

Spread Inspiration

We genuinely believe that even a sliver of inspiration can have a ripple effect and drive real change. Our community pushes each other to feel excited about their life and business and to pay it forward by spreading their ideas with others.
