The Value of Letting Go to Gain Perspective
Adrienne Palmer, an Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) member in Dallas, Texas, embodies the qualities that make EO entrepreneurs truly special. After 20 years managing the digital agency she founded, Adrienne now pursues opportunities to share her knowledge with other entrepreneurs, to grow alongside her peers, and to meaningfully explore the world.
Adrienne recently participated in an incredible adventure in Zimbabwe as part of a MyEO trip. MyEO, one of EO’s most loved benefits, is a platform that makes it easy to connect with other members based on shared passions and interests.
We asked Adrienne to tell us more about the MyEO Tasimba leadership experience. Here’s what she shared:
When I stare at the wooden carved elephant I brought home from Zimbabwe, I can hear her say, in her low rumbling voice, “Don’t forget who you are.” She reminds me daily to stay connected to all I learned about myself and the world during our MyEO trip into the Tasimba leadership experience.
It was a week fully immersed, a week disconnected, and a week exposed to all that Zimbabwe and the wilderness have to teach us. Of course, being EO members, we already share a bond of aligned values, similar life challenges and experiences, and a common language, all of which provided fertile ground for connection. Taking that connection into such a transformational environment created a bond among our clan that will be a part of us forever.
More than a safari, Tasimba provides a unique immersion into the African wilderness. (This video from Tasimba captures the spirit of the program.)
