We are talking to Erin Chase who has turned ordinary chores into a thriving business.
I don’t know about your house, but 4:30 pm to 5:oo pm is when our kids get a little hangry (hunger induced anger) and hankry (hunger induced crankiness)!
There is always at least 1 kid begging for my attention, which makes it tough to cook at best and sometimes impossible!

- Erin has some serious experience preparing dinners for a big family!
- We all know how to do something well. I love that Erin was able to take something that seems so ordinary (like couponing, grocery shopping, meal planning, and cooking dinner) and turn it into a profitable business.
- Erin’s advice about finding a need in the market is key to building a successful business. Grocery shopping, meal planning, and cooking dinner are a BIG pain point for a lot of people. She has been successful at meeting that need in a simple and productive way.
