The EVOLVE Summit All-Member Chapter Retreat


A LETTER FROM CHAPTER PRESIDENT

ETHAN KING Dear Members,

It is an honor and privilege to serve one of the strongest chapters in the world’s most influential organization for entrepreneurs. Like many of you, EO changed my life; helped me evolve into a more enhanced version of my former self, faster than I would have alone. The incoming EO Atlanta Board and I have been hard at work to deliver that same high impact to you over the next year. Whether you are a long time member, or brand new to the organization, there will be content that appeals to all phases of life and entrepreneurship. Our theme for the year is EVOLVE. Our vision is that, through EO experiences, we will learn to unlock our maximum potential and become the best possible version of ourselves. In doing so, we will fortify our businesses and create better lives for our families, our teams, and ultimately, the greater Atlanta community. We. Are. EO. Sincerely,


SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR STRATEGIC ALLIANCE PARTNERS


IT'S BEEN THE BEST THING I'VE DONE AS A BUSINESS OWNER, AND THE VALUE THAT YOU GET OUT OF THE PROGRAM IS 10X THE INVESTMENT. I solely attribute our rapid growth year over year to EO, and the principles that I've learned in the Accelerator Quarterly Learning Days. I've evolved as a business leader, and it's been a great opportunity to continue to learn and grow personally and professionally.

Owner, Imagine Media Consulting

EO IS A GLOBAL ORGANIZATION, AND ONE THAT DOES A GOOD JOB OF MAKING ITSELF ACCESSIBLE TO ALL ITS MEMBERS. WE WANT TO HELP EACH OTHER, AND WE DO. I AM JUST SCRATCHING THE SURFACE, BUT IT HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE ALREADY. EO has reframed my perspective, and truly broadened it. Being an entrepreneur can often feel like a very isolated pursuit. Connecting with so many like-minded, driven, and incredibly successful people just makes it that much more fun, rewarding, and sustainable.

Andrew McConnell

Co-Founder & CEO, Rented.com


EO IS LIFE-CHANGING! IT IS A MUST. EO has helped my business evolve by opening my eyes to personal issues and helping me get my work life balance right. I am much happier now, and am able to be more strategic.

Hadi Irvani Founder, PeachDish

GROW OR DIE! THAT WAS ONE OF EO ATLANTA'S SLOGANS FROM YEARS PAST AND ITS SO TRUE. IT KEEPS ME GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. EO has helped me in so many ways [to list them all] would be a long list. Three years ago my business faced a situation that required a radical change. With the help of my forum I was able to create a strategy, and coupled with key EO contacts, I was able to assemble EO members who had the expertise and experience to help me make that change. That change ended up in a merger with another company, and then dealing with new partners. I'm afraid to think about that situation without EO.
