When Erin Woodward was ten years old, she had what many may consider the experience of a lifetime: Her parents sent her away from her small town just north of Toronto to live with extended family in Bali. Since then, Erin has loved traveling the world and visited 53 countries, so when she fell in love and considered making the move to London, she didn’t hesitate. But once there, she quickly realized she was missing something: Connections.
Erin decided to use the Internet to bring other likeminded women together around something she was passionate about — books — and The Girly Book Club was born. Since then, it has grown to 46 chapters around the world in eight countries and with more than 30,000 members. On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast, Erin talks about creating authentic connections, managing a global team and going virtual to grow your brand.
