Welcome to

I'm Erin Trafford - award winning broadcaster, producer and strategist. And I've unlocked the key to turning my passions for Stories well told into three multiple six-figure businesses - a lifestyle blog, a strategy consultancy and a podcast production house.

Permission to Leap is my invitation to you to accept your passions as gifts and to leap towards the life and business you know you deserve. It's my honest insights and experiences with what it takes to grow, operate and maintain a digital business in this crazy world we live in. Most of all, Permission to Leap is how I flow best as an honest expression of love and openness.

Erin’s encouragement and support over the past many months has been amazing!! I was poised to really launch my business earlier this year and for a few reasons, I held back... until I listened to this podcast!!! Enough of trying to make everything perfect before launching and just following my passion, after listening to only two episodes, I gave myself permission to LEAP!!

Love listening to Erin on my morning walks with my son. These episodes have so much useful and aaaaahhhhaaa information in them. They are the perfect length and the homework given with each episode has helped me see things more clearly.

Every feeling and experience you express makes me feel more validated than before about my insecurities in business. I’ve found so much to learn from in these episodes. Thank you!
