Written for EO by Nigel J. Bennett, co-founder and principal owner of Aqua-Guard Spill Response Inc.. a global leader in controlling oil spills and protecting water, the world’s most precious resource.
During my start-up years at Aqua-Guard Spill Response, Inc., none of us had any formal business training. I was so focused on our day-to-day survival that I didn’t have time to look up from the current crisis of the moment to seek any outside help. But that was about to end. Help was going to find me, and it was called the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO).
Call it serendipity or luck, but this was exactly what I had been looking for. I had been inadvertently searching for this kind of peer support for several years, but didn’t even know it existed.
