Open vistas. Back roads. Dusty boots. Homemade and handmade.
A few phrases that describe the sometimes mistaken for sisters, Jan and Erin – mother and daughter business partners of 20 years. As entrepreneurs they’ve hit every bump and taken every back road and detour a business can take to stake a claim for itself. Let’s just say – they’ve been tested as they’ve pioneered their path to build Prairie Girl Outpost. Their business is truly a culmination of the skills, talents and passions they most want to keep active in their work and home lives.
Here are a few of their accomplishments: two-time authors of The Field Guide for Trailblazing Women & The Createbook Process, Idea Strategists, speakers, facilitators, inventors of Createbooking (an idea-development strategy), founders of Prairie Girl Outpost and Prairie Girl Classroom, and co-creators of Trailblazer on Fire (an international woman’s leadership program). Facilitators of numerous creative, skills development and self-discovery events and workshops, Jan & Erin have also delivered ground breaking workshops in collaboration with other trailblazing women.
Loved for their candid style, honesty and realness, Jan & Erin have a special way of connecting with their community and audiences online and in person. Authentic, approachable, and inspiring, they are able to speak straight to the hearts of women destined for something more in their lives and livelihoods. Jan & Erin believe every woman has the opportunity for self-actualization – to bring their skills, natural talents, passions and wisdom together to claim their ‘Big Idea’ in an enterprising way.
Their company, Prairie Girl Outpost strives everyday to provide practical and visionary tools to help women claim their place in the world. They do this through their Online Courses, Goods & Gatherings, Media and Community, all designed to awaken the trailblazer within. They believe there’s never been a more opportune time for women to approach their lives and livelihood in a wholehearted way and to pioneer a path to their dreams and big ideas.
