What is your favorite New Jersey-based service business?
Merritt’s Service Station in Medford. Local auto shop with owners that are honest and trustworthy as well as committed to their community.
How has COVID-19 affected your business? 
I’m grateful that the ability to interview and engage on social media allows for podcasting and writing to continue. As a motivational speaker, all scheduled presentations have been cancelled and I’ve put scheduling on hold until further notice. I’ve opted to focus on what I can continue investing my time in versus what I can’t, which keeps my mindset more positive.
You can find Erin on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. You can even listen to her podcast here.
