Members Speak About EO Tampa Bay

March 9, 2016

“EO Tampa Bay has given me the opportunity to share with my peers the challenges of starting a business and celebrate with the group when success comes our way,” said Nick Friedman, the co-founder and president of College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving.

The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) is a global organization with a network of more than 11,000 leading entrepreneurs in 48 countries. EO’s vision is to build the world’s most influential community of entrepreneurs. To do so, EO’s members focus on business growth, personal development and community engagement. The core values of EO include trust and respect, a thirst for leaning, to boldy go, make a mark, and remain cool in their approach, attitude and experiences.

Joey Redner, the CEO and founder of Cigar City Brewing LLC says that, “the most significant benefit [from EO Tampa Bay] has been the spousal forum. My wife is very active in the spousal forum. With four small kids she is basically running a small logistics company and it is stressful for her, and the forum setting gives her tools to handle the stress and improve how she manages our household.” Redner adds, “I enjoy the social functions and still attend when I have time; it certainly is nice to be able to empathize with people who know what you are going through.”

There are a number of different opportunities available for members in EO Tampa Bay and worldwide. Friedman says, “I would suggest EO Tampa Bay to anyone in the area who is looking for a structured community of entrepreneurs who are willing to share and give genuine feedback about their entrepreneurship journey.”
