356: How to Pivot and Influence with Erin Busbee
I love when I meet women whose current business is the perfect intersection of their past careers, experiences and passions. Erin Busbee is the perfect example of that. Where she is now, is not where she started. She shares her inspiring entrepreneurial story and reveals how you can pivot your business and build your influence. Erin is a savvy business woman and the founder and CEO of Busbee Style. She is the go-to style, and beauty expert for busy women over 40 juggling life. She provides simple, step-by-step guidance, through relatable video tutorials, “How To” blog posts, and key shopping suggestions. Erin’s mission is to empower women to become more stylish and confident! Before Busbee Style, Erin was as an award-winning journalist, most notably at CBS in New York. In 2009, an inherent passion for fashion prompted her to start styling services via Busbeestyle.com, specializing in “real” women. Now, she focuses her attention online on both the blog: BusbeeStyle.com and YouTube channel, BusbeeStyle TV. Erin has appeared as a style expert on, “Good Morning America,” and “CBS 2 News This Morning.” She has worked with major brands like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, eBay and Olay. But, Erin’s most important role is being a mom to nine-year old, Gage and six-year old Elizabeth.
