THE EO BLOG
By Graham Marsden, Marketing Director at the Entrepreneurs’ Organization
Author’s note: EO has a partnership with Inc. Magazine, and we were grateful to have been generously extended access to their Iconic series of events this year.

We asked Jeremy how he is able to motivate his team. Here’s what he had to say.
When it comes to being successful, motivation is essential – but not just for you. Part of your role as an entrepreneur is positively influencing your team so they’re dedicated to achieving personal and professional success.
