Hi, I’m Erin Marcus, Founder & CEO of Conquer Your Business.
I help service professionals and entrepreneurs save time and make more money by learning how to Be In Charge, Take Action and Get Results!
I have been mentoring, training, teaching and coaching for more than twenty years. I love helping people take action they didn’t think possible, do things they didn’t think they could do and succeed beyond what they dared to dream.
There is no magic social media ad, there is no fail-proof script and there is no guaranteed funnel. Do I believe in and use social media ads, scripts (well outlines really) and funnels. Absolutely! But I also believe that before you go throwing all your time and money into a specific tactic, you have to learn how to be successful.
The pieces to building a successful business might be firm, but how they’re applied to each person varies because each person is unique with their own strengths and challenges.
And that’s where I come in.
My job is not just to outline the foundational pieces of success for you, but also to help you apply them to your unique business with your unique voice.
And because I’m good at asking the right questions, and listening not just to the answer but also to what you’re not saying, my job is also to help you find the greatest version of yourself so you can live up to your greatest potential.
Oh, and we do have fun. You have to have fun!
Day one of life was a rough one and if not for my mother being a tiger, I wouldn’t be here. She knew something was wrong, and she did not stop until they found out what it was and I was in surgery within 24 hrs. When I was 5 and a dog attack resulted in most of my face being ripped off, she insisted on a pediatric plastic surgeon. She understood and modeled advocacy and she knew that if it needed to be done then she would be the one to fight for it.
This puts you in a reactionary mode – cause shit will happen. The question is are you prepared for the things that are GOING to happen and are you in charge of your response?
I am a product of the Chicago Public School system. I even showed up to class sometimes. SOMETIMES. I learned early to work the system, test out of classes quickly instead of sitting through things that didn’t engage me. I won’t tell you all that I did with my extra teenage hours but let’s just say…they were well used!
At Illinois State I went for a degree in journalism and the gift was that I learned not only to talk, but more importantly how to listen. I worked for 3 different papers while I went to school. I put my drive and decidedly short attention span to work and stayed in constant motion.
I took that shiny journalism degree and…did a bunch of stuff that had nothing to do with journalism. I would take a new job, accelerate to the top, get bored and move to the next thing. It wasn’t until my 40s that I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up!
When I opened my Caring Transitions franchise I built one of the company’s most successful franchise in less than 18 months. The corporate office pulled me in and had me training the other franchisees. I would start the adventure, run to the top of the company, share the knowledge and then find the next one.
These things all have the same foundation – being intentional. Flailing gets you nowhere. When you communicate with intent, are confident in where you’re going and what the goal is, and put your fear behind you something shifts. You begin to be purposeful.
My biggest motivation is seeing my clients close big sales, smash their goals, and move confidently into their success! As a fellow entrepreneur, I have been through the struggles and I am not going to placate my clients with warm and fuzzy when I could be giving them real world insights and tools that will make an impact.
Work with Erin Marcus and earn your tiger stripes! Be forewarned – you must be ready to dig in, do the work, and create lasting change.
