“Over my 20 plus years in business I have been involved in so many different groups. Nothing can even come close to what I personally have taken away from EE. Getting the opportunity to meet with some of the biggest leaders in business have been monumental for me personally and my business. Not to mention the one day events have made me make time for myself to do something fun. The guys in this group have been first class and the more I get to know them the more I grow and become a better husband, business owner, leader, father, and friend. If I had to give up all the groups I am in but one this would be the one I would keep.”

“If you want different results, you’re going to need different tactics.- Amazing how hunting and business go hand in hand. One of our trips got blessed with Fred showing up as a special guest, and a television crew to record the monumental 60 birds that these guys were able to bring in. It was a unexpected trip of a lifetime!! “
