Do you struggle with...

Not having enough time in your week so you just keep pushing your due dates out. You want to grow your business, but you just can’t see how to do it without sacrificing more time with your loved ones. 

Being overwhelmed because you are being pulled into a million directions. You are overstimulated by the constant demand your business is putting on you since your business can’t seem to run without you. 

Spending countless hours managing the team you put in place to help free up your time. You are tired of babysitting everyone or wasting hours trying to get status updates.

SIMPLE to Scale Stories

Our Thrive over Survive Motto

Is to get as many small business owners out of survival mode that we can. We want to help you simplify your life so you can enjoy the little things in life, like making pancakes on a Friday morning with your kids because you can! This is what we call THRIVER mode, living a life you love. 

We come along side you as trusted partners to help you grow a business that fits your lifestyle, goals, and vision. Whether that is running an international remote company or running your business from two days a week so you can be that present PTA mom you want to be while still making an impact! 

The goal is to execute and elevate the vision you have for your business so you can be the CEO you were meant to be. We do this through STRATEGY, SYSTEMS, and SUPPORT (your team). We aim to add value and support in every interaction we have whether it be through collaborations, trainings, referrals, or services.  

We believe…

  • Small improvements can make a big difference
  • Small changes are easier to maintain in the long tearm
  • Trust your gut you know what your business needs
  • Never stop improving
  • There are no failures just lessons learned
  • You were meant to THRIVE in life not just Survive day to day

Meet your new biz bestie!

Hey, I'm Emma Ferrick!

 Hi there! I’m Emma, the ELF behind this operations consulting firm!  I’m here to take the overwhelm out of your business and give you more time to enjoy the things that matter most to you!

Control. Freedom. Flexibility. 

Isn’t that why we pursue this crazy life of entrepreneurship? Like many other mom entrepreneurs, I started ELF Operations as a VA side hustle in order to take back financial control in my life and find time freedom when I became a single mother. I left an abusive relationship and I was just trying to survive life at the age of 22. I wanted to be able to give my baby anything she wanted and wanted to be present for all the little moments.

Prior to helping clients find freedom and flexibility in their business, I had a background in Operations Management where I was a scheduler and resource planner for multi-million dollar projects.  I built my business with automation and efficiency from day one to help me live my life to the fullest while juggling working a full time job, running ELF Operations, being a full time mom, and trying to heal. 

Now I help women not just survive their day to day, but THRIVE in a life they love by creating strategy, systems, and teams that support the life they want to live without burnout or overwhelm through my SIMPLE Ops Framework!

I am looking forward to meeting you!
