I found EO surfing the web to try to find like-minded people to discuss business. I had no real peer group to have meaningful conversations about business, and in searching the web I stumbled onto the EO Network.
I attended a "Mock Forum" and after meeting a few of the members I decided to become a part of EO Cincinnati. The time investment and cost were major concerns. After being a part of EO for a year I have more time than ever and I have benefited more than 10 times my investment.
In EO I've found my people. I used to feel like I was the only one with this unique set of issues, I quickly discovered that EO-ers from all over the world can relate to me and I with them.
In forum I've got a trusted group of advisors that I can share anything without judgement in a safe confidential environment.
I've seen and done things all over the world that I would have never even dreamed of 8 or 9 years ago.
Refuel fighter jets in flight.... Check; Conversation with Ford CEO Bill Ford... check; Dinner with NFL and OSU legend Eddie George.... check Piloting a jet pack with friends in Key West.... check
Being in professional sports, I wanted to be a part of a exclusive peer to peer group made up of business owners that operated with core values that included leadership growth, non-solicitation and confidentiality.
I found that and more in EO.
I have been a member of EO for 12 years, and it has transformed my life and business, but more importantly it continues to do so.
Imagine a group of men and women who continually meet to learn, grow, and inspire themselves in their businesses, families, and communities, and then having the privilege to be a part of that group!
The R.O.I. for me is so huge it can’t be measured.
It's amazing to me the different industries and diverse backgrounds that are found in EO.
The challenges and triumphs of owning a small business bring us all together and create an amazing bond.
THE VALEN GROUP
I have had exponential growth as a person and a leader not just in my business but as a husband and a father because of my involvement in EO.
EO is a global organization for entrepreneur’s only who are like-minded peers from all over the world eager to connect and who want to learn and grow to become a better leader in all aspects of their life.

I found myself at a point in my career where it was difficult to connect with others on a personal level - I always had my guard up in order to avoid being taken advantage of.
EO, particularly forum, is a place where we business owners can let their guard down and be real. It's a place where you know no one is trying to 'take' anything from you.
The people I have met through EO are the highest quality individuals that I have ever come across and I'm proud to call them my peers, mentors and friends.
