What eo has meant for me:
"The first thing that jumps out at me when discussing EO’s impact on my life is culture. When I attended EO’s Key Executive Program, it dawned on my business partner and I that we weren’t recognizing our employees or providing a platform for them to thrive on. EO helped us see that and ultimately improve our culture.
The second thing that jumps out is vision. Before EO, Mobile Outfitters didn’t have a concrete vision. For us, our vision amounted to: get more sales. Yet, at the end of the day vision is a lot more than saying “we want to get more sales”, it’s about thinking where you want your business to be, what steps you need to take to get there, breaking those steps down into actionable goals… than taking action and doing it! At our company, from 2009 to 2013, we had a pretty steady employee count of six to twelve individuals. But, since the year we joined EO, we went from 12 employees to 30. Ultimately, I realized that I wasn’t going to grow my business, without laying down the groundwork."
