Erika Lyremark: Business Lessons from Stripping (GPP99)

Erika is the mastermind behind Daily Whip, where she dishes out business advice for bold women.

Showing early entrepreneurial skills when she let her brother throw a pie in her face for $5, Erika wheeled and dealed her way through high-school, earned degrees in Women Studies and Apparel Design, spent 9 years swinging around a stripper pole, went on to co-create a multi-million dollar commercial real estate investment company, and now helps women create, sell, and market their products & services. 

Erika documented her experiences in her best-selling book Think Like A Stripper, lauded by Dan Pink as “a smart and provocative read”, while Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran says “Erika will not only whip you into shape with her wit, humor, and no-nonsense advice but show you how to bounce back from failure and become the confident sales superstar you’re meant to be.”

This week on the Get Paid Podcast, Erika joins us to chat about how being a stripper shaped her brand, channeling confidence, and leaning into her provocative side through her business.

“People aren't really bringing their brilliance to the table. So many internet marketers, gurus and coaches treat people like they're stupid. Because when you treat people like they're stupid, it scares them and they’re hooked on you” — Erika LyremarkClick To Tweet

If you’re like me, you’ve heard the talk: “Evergreen funnels aren’t effective. Only certain types of businesses can actually sell on autopilot”. But, that’s not true at all. I’ve made $50,000 in revenue with Mariah Coz’s evergreen funnel strategies.
