Entrepreneurship is daunting and isolating at times. EO (Entrepreneurs’ Organization) forums allow business owners to voice their struggles and make crucial personal and professional decisions. So, what makes an EO forum impactful, and how can you make the most out of the experience?

According to Colton Mulligan, there are two types of EO forums: deep dives and discussions. Deep dives are optimal for addressing the 5%, which are the aspects of an entrepreneur’s life not shared with anyone else. Colton, Robert Hartline, and Eric Jackson have been through rigorous forum training and understand how to optimize deep dives for maximum benefit.

In today’s episode, Robert Hartline hosts Colton Mulligan of FoxFuel Creative and Eric Jackson of Element 47 to discuss facilitating effective EO forum deep dives.
