Erin Busbee

Founder & CEO of Busbee Style

Hi! I’m Erin Busbee, founder & CEO of Busbee Style. I started my online business more than 6 years ago because I know what it feels like to struggle with style. I have lived through the very real struggles, whether it’s not knowing enough, feeling overwhelmed by too many choices, budget, lack of confidence, fear, transitioning to a new phase of life, motherhood, getting older or all of these, I’ve been through it. I am still going through it! There are ways to figure out what works for you right now, how to dress the body you have right now, and how to make style simple. We help busy women juggling life over 40, look like the best version of themselves!

We want women over 40 to understand that 40+ is not something you have to apologize for. Or lie about. Actually, there’s so much to look forward to! We are PRO-aging!

When you join our team, you will play an integral role in helping real women feel amazing in all areas of life. It’s a special and unique purpose that brings joy to our hearts …and I hope it will for you too!
