EO can be a valuable tool for entrepreneurs to connect, share stories, and solve problems. Yet many business owners don’t recognize its benefits when they share the same superficial update during each forum session. Learn how the president of the largest EO chapter in the US gained clarity on his personal and professional life by being vulnerable.
For years, Mike Rustici’s forum update was consistent: he claimed to have a thriving business and a failing marriage. Since he never elaborated on his circumstances, Mike couldn’t adjust or improve them. But a cancer diagnosis transformed his perspective on life and business, prompting several vital decisions, including a company exit and a divorce. He recognized that EO is only as valuable as your contribution and that with vulnerability and authenticity, you can create a transformative forum experience to facilitate meaningful life changes.
Tune in to this episode of The Decision as EO Nashville’s President Mike Rustici returns to talk about his journey through EO. Mike shares how the organization impacted his business, how having cancer altered his personal and professional life, and how to elevate forum experiences through vulnerability.
