What is a Peer Group?
A peer group is a group of people that share similar characteristics and interests.
A peer group could consist of people who are similar in age, social status, or geography. In addition, you could be in a peer group based on interest. If you were ever on a basketball team or on the cheerleading squad, then you’ve been a part of a peer group.
What Are The Benefits of Peer Groups
Peer groups heavily influence our thoughts and behaviors. For entrepreneurs, they can also help take your business to the next level. Entrepreneur peer groups enable you to connect and learn from each other’s challenges. These groups force you to intentionally take time to focus on your business, challenge you to think bigger, and create the space to devise strategies that help both you and the group attain success both personally and professionally. It’s the right kind of peer pressure.
“Nine years ago, I joined an organization that changed my life for the better–Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO). I joined it to help my growing business, not knowing that I would meet my closest friends there and focus on personal growth and family growth as much as any business issues. I have no doubt that the formula works, though. Nine years after joining the group, I am a better CEO, leader, father, husband, and person. I urge you to consider–for your business’s health and for your own personal well-being–joining a supportive group for fellow entrepreneurs.”
