Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with the raddest 4'11ish pixie in all of the land...Eryn Eddy Erickson! Eryn is the founder of So Worth Loving, a beautifully designed clothing line that shines the light on love. I started following Eryn a long while ago on Twitter after I discovered SWL and was immediately impressed. It feels like more of a mission than a clothing line and I've been inspired by her passion for people and zeal for empowerment ever since.
So Worth Loving has been around for 2.5 years. In that time, they've been featured on CNN, partnered with the Giving Keys (see Worthy Key) and just went on a 14 city tour (600 supporters showed up!) This is where I met the gang and I'm so glad I did. They're the real deal (talent and graciousness). Plus, Eryn and I got to bond over being way below average height. --
Eryn! Thanks for spending a few moments here on Chipper Things. Will you tell us what it is that you do?
With So Worth Loving, I guess you could say I wear many hats. Up until November 2013 I was the fulfillment center, customer service department, product development, and marketing department. After hiring a customer service/office manager (who is WAY better at the job than me haha), I now oversee marketing, lead a team of rad contributors that donate their time and talent to helping us grow, and I am knee deep in product development.
Walk us through your day. Not your greatest day, but not your worst. What does a good-to-ideal day look like for you? 7:30 am: Being a night owl, I wake up sluggishly get out of bed while my french bulldog still wants to snuggle. fast breakfast. 8:30am: get dressed. feed and play with our pup. out the door. grab a coffee. 9:00am: at the office which is a co-working space full of other entrepreneurs and doers! Being an extrovert I chit chat about what we are currently working on for a good 15 to 30 min. (of course sprocket my pup comes with me to the office!) 9:30 am: make a list of the things I need to conquer. If I don't, my email will control my day and I lose sight of the important things! 11:00 am: meeting with Kurtis our office manager. Go over improvements needed + inventory that needs to be restocked + go over collaboration emails + discuss sales or anything 12:00 pm: LUNCH! 12:30 pm: back to the grind 3pm: press check at the printers or need to pick up inventory from printers 4pm: sometimes we will have photo-shoots and we will prep to shoot as the sun goes down 6pm: detach from work and swing by the grocery and grab some easy grub to cook for dinner. If it's a stressful day I will vegg out in front of the tv or look at property online. In another life I think I was a real estate agent because I love helping people find homes in our city!!
Do you have any boundaries throughout your day? I have decided to only check my email only 3 times a day. Morning, lunch and before I head out. When I leave my office I try hard to not think about work. I love what I do so turning it off is a necessary boundary I need to be proactive about!

Thanks, Eryn. You inspire many around you, and we thank you for fighting the good fight and using your time to leave this world better than how you found it.
