EntreLeadership has helped thousands of business owners connect with one another through the advice, encouragement and accountability of an Advisory Group.
What is an Advisory Group?
If you’re like most business owners, you don’t have anyone to talk to about the struggles of running a business. And ultimately, that affects your ability to grow and make decisions.
That’s why we created Advisory Groups.
An Advisory Group is a small group of business owners who meet online twice a month to share advice, encouragement and accountability. The group is facilitated by an EntreLeadership Coach who guides the conversation—but the value of the group is in the advice and perspective of your fellow business owners.
