You've got the itch to leave the corporate grind, now you need to know how to get started in consulting and a plan that walks you through each step of the way.

Meet your new business strategy and focused guidance below 👇

Here's the easy test we have for you...

If you've been wishing for a way out (whether you've been wishing for 1 year or 10 years), and have not found your path yet...

Take the next 30 days to start planning your OWN business to see if that's the answer you've been looking for.

Your new trusted advisor, Leave the Ladder, is more than a course. It's a self discovery tool. It's a business plan template (with 75+ pages of templates, worksheets and more). It's an accountability partner. AND it's a focused online course that you can use to rediscover how to build a life you enjoy around doing what you're good at.

I'll tell you more about that below...

When I left my job to go out on my own, I ran into two huge issues.


It took me months to figure out how to talk about what I did, and who the right people were to connect with.

Essentially, I spent a lot of time talking to the wrong people.


I didn't know the methods to build up recurring revenue or a steady continuous client base, and once I figured it out I had already burned through a lot of my savings.

Essentially, it took me a lot longer to build revenue than I planned for.

Leave the Ladder, designed to be used at your own pace and as custom for your situation helps you to avoid both of those problems.

There's no need to spend every night Google-ing or to invest thousands on a business coach.

Without Leave the Ladder 🙇‍♀️:

  • You're stuck at your desk growing more frustrated and more complacent every day, wondering what else you could be doing with your life.

  • You're spending your free time scouring the internet for your next job and something that could possibly be the saving grace for your career.

  • You start to research various business and career coaches to see if there is someone, anyone, who can help you figure out what to do and how to do it.

With Leave the Ladder 💁‍♀️:

  • You login, get started immediately, and begin to get a sense of ways to start working for yourself.

  • You get excited and gain momentum. You develop your business plan and start to plan your transition timeline.

  • You know what tasks to do when. Based on your customized plan you are able to know what date you will be able to officially go out on your own. You are excited about this next chapter of your life and career that you are creating for yourself.

Hey, I'm Erica. Besides my consulting I teach workshops, such as this Employee to Entrepreneur one pictured above, that I taught for the Small Business Academy. 

I've used my methods, worksheets and templates to help consultants in various industries including HR, Technical, Content Marketing, and Communications.

Here's the breakdown of Leave the Ladder and the 6 Modules:

Who this is NOT for:

  • People who want to open an online product store. This program does not include the right strategy or tips for that (Leave the Ladder is best for people who want to be consultants).

  • Employees who have been in the workforce less than five years. Leave the Ladder leverages your experience in the workforce, so it is best if you have at least 8 years of professional experience.

  • Those who are looking for a method to "get rich quick." Successful participants will invest their time to learn strategies on how to build their business. 

This IS for you if:

  • You have had 8 years or more of professional experience and you are either in management, or your peers look to you for guidance and assistance.

  • You are driven, motivated, and feel best when you achieve something that you have worked hard for.

  • You have always had a little voice telling you that you'd like to be your own boss someday.

Hi there-- I'm your host, Erica.

...and I've been in your shoes.

I'm Erica Quigley. For 10 years I climbed the corporate ladder as if there was some magic rung that would make me feel as if I had hit the top.  As one of only a few executive women, a mother of two, a great education and a hundred great ideas I couldn't get support for, I made a change to support my own destiny.


So I started my own consulting practice. I decided to only focus on working with clients I admired and projects I enjoyed. With my own success I felt compelled to share the hard lessons I learned and the tools and methods I used to overcome them and do this on my own. 

In summary,

You've known you wanted to find a way out of the handcuffs of the corporate grind for a while now. You know once you're free you will not only have accomplished a major life goal, but you will have done something that inspires others AND inspires yourself to pursue the things in life that you actually enjoy.


You're here on this page because you feel like the time is now. In fact, you feel like it's now or never because you're tired of delaying.


It's time to stop overthinking and start doing something to advance yourself, for the simple reason that you want to and you deserve to.
