We have control of our own future.
For generations we've had to work within the rigid confines of the 9-5. It's time to redefine work that works for us.
The Upside is a community of consultants and experts who network, collaborate and share knowledge for the advancement of everyone.

"Erin's ability to hone in on your differentiators and call you out on areas that need to be addressed with lightning speed and accuracy are an invaluable asset."
Hi, I'm Erin.
I believe that we should be more than just cogs in the corporate machine.
As professionals evolve and our needs change, fitting into the 9-5 box (or let’s face it, 8-6) feels beyond antiquated. It’s also inefficient for both experienced employees and future-forward employers.
Packaging your skills and networks into an independent consultancy can help you redefine the 9-5 and provide the autonomy, freedom and flexible lifestyle that so many of us strive for.
In addition, when executed well and with the support of other like-minded experts, this career path can be less stressful, more fulfilling and yield more stability than any traditional corporate job out there.
Own your time. Own your success. Own your relationships. Join The Upside and see for yourself the connections, leveling-up and success that develop when like-minded professionals come together to advance one another in business.
