You Do You(ish) Book Cover

Erin's book, You Do You(ish), hurls aside the crusty, decades-old career advice you’ve likely heard for way too long: lean in, executive presence, network, blah, blah, blah. Instead, this book will help you see that there's a better way to have success and get great results. An approach that will produce a massive win-win: you succeed, you don’t sell out.

You Do You(ish) will take you on a roller-coaster ride that will have you go deep, say “aha”, and possibly tinkle a little while laughing, sometimes all in the same sentence. The book is whimsical and inspiring, yet also grounded in Erin’s proprietary H.U.M.A.N.S. framework - Six Principles of Strategic Authenticity.
