At Akela Partners, my partners and I have been running peer advisory boards throughout the country for the past five years and I’ve had the privilege of personally leading over 50 meetings. I can tell you from my experience the meetings themselves make up the highlight of my month. No matter how rotten a week I’m having, the three hours spent with other business owners learning, contributing, sharing and focusing on my business always end with me feeling refreshed and invigorated.
