You can’t do it alone. No one can. The most successful entrepreneurs will tell you they surrounded themselves by people who round out their skills and are smarter then them in their respective areas. But how do you find those people? Peers who will not yes you to death. Peers who are willing to share their “secret sauce” to growing a business. We’ve all heard about Mastermind and Peer and Networking groups and you may have even joined one along the way. How do you select the right group, make the most of the accountability factor and ensure that the data you receive is accurate?
My guest today is Arlin Sorensen, Founder of the HTG Peer Groups and CEO of Heartland Technology Systems (recently sold) of which I was a member when I owned my I.T. company. Arlin and I are going to talk about how peer groups can help your business and your life grow. We are also going to speak about a topic that too often brings up fear and anxiety or the thought, “We can’t bring that up. HR says we can’t.” Yes, we are going to talk about Faith in the Workplace.
Arlin has a popular blog and morning list that blends his many worlds and he boldly brings his faith to such events as the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference and other tech industry events. He leads with his faith. Arlin is going to share with us his insights on how he balances his faith in his daily routine with the needs of his multi-million dollar companies.
Join us March 19, 2014 at 5PM Eastern on the All Business Radio Network for this week’s edition of Entrepreneur Master Class.
