64. How to Grow in Any Environment | Erika Andresen | The Real Deal with Camille

Erika Andresen, CBCP, JD, MPA, is a recovering lawyer after nearly two decades in both the corporate finance world and the military. Erika became a subject matter expert on national security and disaster preparedness/response while advising different commands and also during high-risk situations in Afghanistan. Her work with actual disasters led her to attain a Master of Public Affairs.

Erika left active duty in 2020 and has since started EaaS Consulting, LLC, with the goal of keeping businesses in business. To that end, she authored How to Not Kill Your Business: Grow Your Business in Any Environment, Navigate Volatility, and Successfully Recover When Things Go Wrong, a conversational introduction to business continuity enjoyed by CBCP practitioners and business owners alike.

Erika is also a professor of emergency management for the MPA program at the University of Texas at El Paso.  She has been quoted extensively in articles for Forbes, Dark Reading, SmartSheet, and MoneyGeek on the issues of business continuity and disaster preparedness.

I loved chatting with Erika about how she has always followed her own path, even when it didn’t make sense to anyone else. Not many people would quit their job, join the military, and take a $70,000 pay cut to follow their calling, but that’s exactly what she did.
