You’d be hard pressed to think of ANY entrepreneur who wouldn’t benefit from this class. 

Shoot them this brochure and invitation, and if you want to join them for the info session, register yourself on the EO site here – but don’t feel like you have to be there.

We host regular happy hours for bonding time…we have cracked the code for making the small group discussion productive and meaningful…we start each meeting with Michael interviewing a SAP and relating it back to the class…the list goes on.
