I had no idea what I was doing, from an operations standpoint, for the first 5 years of growing my agency.

But I knew three things:

  1. I knew how to produce excellent results for our clients,
  2. I can take complex ideas and make them digestible to non-industry professionals
  3. I needed to find the right mentors to help me skip over early mistakes

Within a few months of moving to Chicago I went to a loop meeting and one of the entrepreneurs I was supposed to meet didn’t show.

I ended up taking a chance and emailing him afterwards.

He is the founder of one of Chicago’s most renowned social media agencies and I’m proud that we have been friends for the last five years.

He is always there to listen and offer his help in any way he can.

I attribute finding my way in a new city to him.

Without his guidance I would have never met so many great entrepreneurs though EO that have taken the time to share their experiences within business, helped me through the early mistakes in business and have become an advisory board that I turn to.

People like him are why successful entrepreneurs exist.

They’re willing to help because relationships underline everything.

They’re an entrepreneur for the right reasons

And the best thank-you I can give is doing the same for others.
