How did you find EOK?
Jonathan Patrick
Who are you? (family, school, work, hobbies, interests, dreams)
I started my career as a Chemial Engineer in the Automotive industry, became an entrepreneur, and now utilize the broad spectrum of my background to help other entrepreneurs.

As an Engineer my specialties were process and product optimization. As an entrepreneur I knew failure was not an option and learned to do whatever it took to achieve my goals. Those two things make me very good at creative problem solving.

I'm the person who tells you "that's an intersting idea, now let's figure out how to make it happen."

We’ve all heard size doesn’t matter.  Well the elephant in the room is that size does matter!  Am I talking about actual size? Absolutely not.  I’m talking about effort; you can’t reach big dreams without putting in big effort.

In the old days, yes a mere 10 to 15 years ago, you had to really put out effort to start a business.  Before the internet it might take 6 months or more to research and write a business plan.  Then there was all of the other daunting start-up…

EOK: Getting Back to Our Roots

Posted on May 5, 2011 at 3:48pm 3 Comments

As many of us know EOK sprang to life from Leonard Knight gathering together with some fellow business leaders over coffee to help one another with whatever issues they were facing.  This casual supportive environment was so successful that it grew beyond the confines of a coffee shop into what we now know and love as EOK!

 

Fortunately the increase in members has meant incredible opportunities for member success and extensive offerings to the Entrepreneurial community. …
