In this episode…

Business networks are very valuable to entrepreneurs, yet many toss them aside. Networks can help you connect, develop great relationships, and act as sources of advice for managing growing businesses. By promoting high-level, meaningful conversations among entrepreneurs, these communities can level up your business.

However, most business networks and masterminds only meet a few times during the year, limiting how often members meet and network. In a bid to create a better community, Mike Calhoun set out to create Board of Advisors, a group of competent, expert thought leaders that offer real value to each other. 

In this episode of the Innovations and Breakthroughs Podcast, Rich Goldstein interviews Mike Calhoun, the Founder and CEO of Board of Advisors, about the value of connecting with fellow entrepreneurs through business networks. Mike explains how he dove into entrepreneurship as a kid, the lessons he learned from the different businesses and jobs he had, and his reasons for starting his Board of Advisors business network. Stay tuned.
