Emerging Leaders

Having access to the right connections, at the right time, can be critical to your success.

Membership in ELO Network will allow you to connect with incredible people all over the country and provide you with access to our experts.  The ELO Network will ultimately help you accelerate towards your goals in life and in your business. 

Joining ELO will not only provide the ability to connect with all of our members, but once you become a member we will help you learn how to use all the tools within ELO for your personal and professional development. Think of this way, we can provide you with a map, which will get you from point A to point B, however having access to a guide or a group of guides will take you much further than you could go on your own.

Once you join the ELO Network, you will receive an invitation to our Private LinkedIn Group. Start connecting, learning and participating as soon as you join.

Ever since Howard Schultz (the Founder of Starbucks as we know it today) came back from Milan with this idea of creating an environment like he witnessed first hand on his trip, where people would sit down for a cup of coffee to share their story, their business, their lives with one and another, coffee shops across the globe have been the birthplaces of ideas, connections and partnerships.

If you have had any success in life and in business, you understand the value of having access to a network of successful individuals, business owners and industry leaders.  Having a great network essentially provides you perspective, encouragement and many times access to a solution.  Finding expert advice at a moments notice will save you time and money.  We encourage you to connect with our incredible and growing nationwide network via our exclusive, private Linked-In group.

First – Know what you want to accomplish, but be open to detours!

Reach out to people in your network or within the ELO Network if you are a member. Your goal is to identify the resources, solutions or connections you need to accomplish your goals, build on your IDEA, advance in your career and/or grow your business like never before. Know why you want to meet, however always be prepared to be a resource, connector or provider of insight as well!

Second – Set the meeting and be ready to engage

Start the conversation with something like:

  • If I had to say I was an expert on one thing it would be...
  • I am currently working on and/or I am looking for advice on...
  • If you connect with another ELO Member, include: I decided to use ELO for this purpose and I joined theELO Network because.
  • If you meet with someone who is not an ELO member, leverage our tools to help him or her with their interests, endeavors and/or problems and introduce them to our network.

Third – Celebrate the meeting, what you learned and any next steps

Our goal is for the network to hit 10,000 cups of coffee by the end of 2016 – when you have your cup of coffee, send us the picture, any details of your meeting and your address (if you are an ELO Member we may have a little something for your efforts).  We want to hear about your conversation.  What did you learn? How do you plan to incorporate it into your plan?  How did you help the person you met with?
