FEATURE Voyage LA Magazine

 “If the road had been smooth, I would not have pushed myself to look for new opportunities.”

That’s the thing about challenges, they push you to grow out of your comfort zone and soar even higher.

A big thank you to Voyage LA Magazine for giving me this opportunity to share a bit about my journey, past, present and future with you. I am so excited for what’s to come: I’ve been working hard on a new startup, Orange & Bergamot, where I hope to be able to give small business owners the benefit of my 15 years of branding expertise combined with my biz partners’ 18 years of business and technology experience at an affordable cost. We are crazy passionate about empowering entrepreneurs to be the best they can be.

We’re also coming out with a book, and as I mentioned in a previous post, working on a business magazine for women through our other company, Mavens Media Group!

If you had asked me a few years ago what my life would be like now, I would not have believed I’d be doing all of this and most importantly, be so incredibly happy doing it all.

I hope that my little story inspires you to keep moving forward!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).
