Technology and just the pace of the entertainment industry can shorten the lifecycle of any career except for those that continue to take steps for self-improvement. EO provides resources to help entertainment professionals grow in their careers by access through education and training seminars and courses. Additionally, in some of our meetups we bring in established professionals to share their ideas so others may learn. EO is a community of entertainment professionals by entertainment professionals all with the desire to be the best but also the willingness to help others succeed.
Reason 7: See how you compare to your peers
Everyone wants to be a star or the best in your field. By his or her nature, everyone is competitive. EO gives you the opportunity to shine and also compare yourself to your peers. Then if you want improvement you can get mentorship or training to improve. But EO will be more. It’s the place to leverage your connections with your peers and others to continually improve.
Reason 8: You look bigger when you swim with your school of fish rather than alone.
The power of the EO community and the reason for the fish analogy is that when you swim in a school of fish to the outside world you look larger and more powerful. Being more powerful and larger relates to the people you know and the people with whom you hand out. The EO community starts on line with the ability to connect, communicate and collaborate. Yet it extends to offline activities where personal relationships can be built over time. Think about EO being the start of the community not the end game of being in the community.
