Several weeks ago an entrepreneur approached me saying that they had just hit $1 million in revenue. Then, he asked if he should join the Entrepreneurs’ Organization now that he qualifies. I paused and posed a few questions:
- Do you have a peer group of other entrepreneurs that you meet with on a regular basis?
- Do you want more continuing education geared towards entrepreneurs?
- Do you want to spend more time on your business vs in the business?
- How much time are you prepared to put into the organization (the more you put in, the more you get out)?
Entrepreneurs’ Organization is perfect for entrepreneurs that want to network, grow, and become a better entrepreneur through peer-to-peer learning. To get value from it requires serious time and resources, and the result pays for itself many times over.
What else? What are some other thoughts on when to join the Entrepreneurs’ Organization?
