Membership Has Its Privileges
If you know me well, you know that I am a member of many different organizations. Currently my highest honor is serving as chairman of the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce, which just hosted its annual gala at the Saints training facility. Great job to Todd Murphy and his staff for hosting a spectacular event.
I also love being a member of the Louisiana chapter of the Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO) - a global organization with more than 10,000 members worldwide that focuses on the growth of its businesses. Its members also help each other with personal development.
One of the many things we focus on at the local level is working with entrepreneurs via our Accelerator Program. This program, launched in New Orleans and now in EO chapters nationwide, is designed to catapult an entrepreneur’s business from $250,000 in annual revenue to more than $1 million. Last month we held a graduation event to celebrate five businesses that met this goal. If you know the following people, please congratulate them on their success.
• Charlie Davis of Liquid Ventures
• Josh Goodson of Tiger Shredding & Recycling, LLC
• Matt Lundy of REI Promos
• Chad Olivier, CFP of The Olivier Group, LLC
• Dustin Puryear of Puryear IT, LLC
