Author. Podcaster. Speaker.
Erin Stewart is an expert in values-based and values-led organizations. She overcame personal and career adversity at an early age by establishing personal values coupled with a strong work ethic and desire to succeed. Erin’s greatest joys are spending time with her family and friends as well as helping inspire and educate others on how to Lead With Values.
I’m the only entrepreneur in my family. My husband wishes he was; he sees the big picture and wants to walk this yellow brick road, but doesn’t know how to get to OZ. He has suggested I find a group or start a mastermind to meet with others who “think like me.” I’ve been to some associations and sat through their meetings, I’ve followed several people online who I think are influential (listen to the podcast, I’m sure we will talk about who they are), but what I really need is a BFF that I can talk to, tell you all my ideas, laugh together, maybe cry together while we eat ice cream, and just help each other out. My BFF is going to GET IT because you are there too. You are trying to do it, or you’ve recently done it, or maybe you just have the dream of doing it. Either way, if you think like me, you dream like me, you work hard like me, then you are my BFF. It’s nice to meet you.
Finding Me, Feeling Free
I’m sure we will get to know each other very well through the podcast and on social media. But I want to go a little deeper. I am writing a book. I’m writing my story. Not “It all began the day my parents…” This work will consist of my work history (which is quite adventurous), how I met my husband and his journey with addiction and cancer and how it affected – and still affects – our family, as well as my journey into entrepreneurialism including all my previous failures. It isn’t going to be super long. But it will be make you laugh, might make you cry, surprise you, and keep you turning the pages. I hope. I will let you know when it is available for pre-order. Because why wouldn’t my BFF get the first copy?!
Lead With Values
Lead With Values is a way for organizations to do more than stencil their values on the wall. Erin is creating a system that will help organizations of all sizes–from a family of four to a Fortune 500 company–find common values, work with purpose and achieve their own success. Her strategies are no secret; they have been written about in numerous books by dozens of authors. Erin just presents the information in a way that is easy to understand and easy to apply.
It is a work in progress, and there is so much more to come, but we had to start somewhere.
