What sticky problem are you solving?
From my clients:
Erika has an uncanny ability to quickly grasp the wide landscape of challenges and opportunities available to our small organization and to identify and implement appropriate structures and methods to strategically develop and evaluate ideas and courses of action. She's nimble and flexible, able to respond to changing conditions as they arise, pivoting and identifying new paths as needed. She's is a trusted voice of reason and a valuable strategic thinking partner.
We're calling you Erika 'Un-Blocker.' Our discussions helped me get 'unstuck'. I'm getting critical stuff done and I'm more confident addressing internal issues directly when they come up.
Erika acts as a critical sounding board for important decisions. She has knowledge and connections that produce out of the box ideas I would never generate on my own, and she brings enormous energy and enthusiasm for my business that help me keep things moving forward.
