Hello! I'm Erin, a mom, event planner, realtor, blogger, and connector. When I'm not hanging out with lil guy, you can find me mingling at events around Cleveland and supporting local businesses & charities. I am also a real estate agent who primarily works with Builders and Developers creating beautiful new homes and multi-family luxury apartments in Cleveland and its surrounding neighborhoods.
Housewives are known to host events around the country, check out our sister city in Nova's blog, tastings at restaurants, fashionable summer block parties, networking at fancy hotels, and of course, philanthropic events to give back to the community. We also share tales of local getaways, entertainment within 100 miles or less, and delicious recipes. You can always come connect with me and the Cleveland Housewives community at one of our monthly meet-ups on Thursdays nights at various venues each month!
One of my FAVORITE things about the housewives blogs is connecting and networking with fabulous women in various cities and sharing the profiles of women in business in Cleveland through the Leading Ladies series on this blog. Since these are the questions we Ask these Fabulous women, here is a snapshot on me!
Describe yourself in three words:
Entrepreneur, fun-loving, compassionate
What do you consider your greatest professional achievement?
I have been fortunate to have held many roles over the years, with one being owning my own salon business. I bought the business with a friend and together we turned a profit in less than a year. We both knew nothing about owning a business but we managed to put both our skills together and turn something we loved into a thriving venture. I sold my half of the business and decided to raise my son. Which is my greatest personal accomplishment!
What are your professional goals for the next six months?
To connect more businesses to more women and continue to grow the Cleveland housewives network!
How does your company stay connected through social media?
I am constantly active on social media. Update, update, update! You can follow me on facebook, give me a heart on instagram, or follow me on my twitter account.
What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I also work in Real Estate along with blogging and planning events it a great balance for me.
How do you maintain a work/life balance?
I feel to be as balanced as possible its important to separate time to focus on one thing at a time to give it your full attention. I make time to just focus on my son, and then carve out hours for work and of course a few for just "me time". Our personal lives now blend into work and work into personal. Its important to just turn off the cell phone and tune into the things that really matter the most.
What websites do you visit every day?
Housewives in the City, Facebook, Linked, Yelp, Cleveland.com, Twitter

3. Clevelanders are the best including my family and friends. I am always meeting new people here and making new connections.
What is your goal for retirement?
To continue blogging and spread out to different cities around the world along with spending most of my time with my family and friends.
