Talk about inspiration! Erica started a web hosting company and sold it at the age of 26 for $1.1 Million dollars (Yeah, I said Million).

Now she blogs about the lessons she has learned, and what she is currently doing to grow her business.

However, at the start of the interview, we started talking about a "no email trial" she did. Email is becoming more and more of a headache for many internet marketers (including myself) and Erica decided to go without for 30 days, which grew to 60 days.

Erica shares how the trial went, and what she did in order for her business to continue to grow even while being pretty much away from her inbox.

She then talks about the lessons she learned and mistakes she made while building her web hosting company, while giving insight into how to avoid making the same mistakes she did.

We also talk a little about her struggle with Celiac disease, her goals for the future, how she plans on meeting those goals, and how she is trying to  make the world a better place.

Go ahead and listen to the interview. You won't regret it. Make sure to sign up for her "Blog Success Manifesto", and stay tuned for the launch of her new product "Step by step business", where she will teach you how to start a business from scratch regardless of your level of experience.

    Erica we are kindred spirits!!! I totally agree that people should not be feeling sick and tired after they eat!!!! YESSSS I LOVE YOU NOW :)

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge about business and traffic too. I need traffic lol. Especially to help get my free ebook out there once it's finished. I'm going to look for your free product cause i'm definitely one of those "not technical" people lol. I'm also going to read the post about celiac disease. My grandmother has an intolerance to wheat and she's doing SO MUCH BETTER now that she stopped eating it :) You ROCK. Soooo much value in this interview.

      I think I heard her on interview before too. Maybe on Entrepreneurs Journey, or somewhere else.

      Glad you enjoyed the interview!

    Hey Leslie,

    That's CRAZY that I was just talking about Erica in our coaching call, and then here she is. Like I said in the coaching call, her blog setup service was instrumental in getting my first blog up and running. She was definitely the initial inspirational spark that opened up the online world to an aspiring fitness nut. It's hard to believe that it's already been over a year! I've learned a lot in that time, but it's still just a drop in the ocean compared to what's out there.

    I loved the interview and I really value the unique perspectives that Erica provides. It seems like she's always so methodical, always testing and improving. I wish I could be more like that. :)

    Love the "Featured Interviews" section you've added to the side bar, as well as the "Upcoming Interviews" section. It's got me excited already.

    Best Wishes,

      Actually, I contacted her for an interview because you mentioned that she got you started. So I wanted to connect with her and see what she had to say :)

      Thanks for the feedback about the Featured and Upcoming interviews sections. That's exactly what I was trying to accomplish :)
