Hello there!
Are you a professional juggler?

You have so many different balls in the air you are trying to juggle. You have your business, you have your kids, their activities, your partner, and maybe a social life, if you are lucky. 

You are just trying to find a moment to breath without dropping one of the many responsibilities you are juggling. 

I get it I have been there too, super woman! You put undue pressure on yourself because you want to give everyone your best, including your kids! 

What if things could be SIMPLE? Well, in your business it can be. I can’t say parenting or marriage is simple, but my team and I can give you the support you need to present in all areas. 


It is nice to finally meet you!

I’m Emma Ferrick (now Snyder), 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!
