What Others Say…

  • "I was really quite blown away by the experience. Not only did I learn things that I've never heard of before as a serial entrepreneur for the past 20 years, but I also met with with a caliber and quality of mentor I never would have had the privilege of sitting down with in any other setting. I learned so much about business. I learned ways to improve my revenues and how to handle my employees. But the most important thing for me about Biz Owners Ed was that it reawakened in me a thirst for learning. I really believe, as we are already here for our reunion a few months later, that I'll have the relationships that I formed forever."

  • "I was a member of the inaugural class of BOE. What I got out of it was a lot of great contacts, both with the peers who were in the group with me and then the mentors who were there. I also got a lot of good business nuggets. Whether it was regarding human resources, finance, raising capital, structuring your board of directors...there were just a lot of great nuggets that you could take back and put into action right away. I recommend the class to any future candidate who might be considering it."
