Leadership is naturally a very lonely road, no matter if that leadership is as an Entrepreneur, Investor, or Business Owner.
There are people and topics you really want to talk about, yet most people in your life don’t even get it.
The willingness to take on challenges, obstacles, and risks that others are simply unwilling to go after.
To succeed, to be the best you can be, you need allies.
Everyone Needs Allies
Team members, vendors, consumers, clients, contractors.
Yet, those are the seen and obvious people an Entrepreneur, Investor, or Business Owner (E, I, O) might need.
Friends, accountability partners, confidants, just someone to vent to, or get a second set of eyes on a problem.
This can be filled by a number of groups or ways … Active Guild is for a specific group of E, I, O’s
The Active in Active Guild
We love physical activities.
Hiking, sailing, swimming, running, climbing, sports, etc.
Active Guild is not just for any E, I, O, but those who have a drive for challenging physical activities too.
The 2017 Guild Challenge
One challenge for 2017 we are doing as a group is taking on at least one Obstacle Course Race (OCR).
For some this is natural, where they have been doing multiple OCRs each year, for others their first will be in 2017.
Examples of an OCR that you might have heard of:
- Tough Mudder
- Spartan Race
- Warrior Dash
- Battle Frog
- Zombie Race
- Bone Frog
- Mud Run
- Savage Rave
A Note from Nation
I’m Jonathan Nation, Founder of Active Guild, as a part of Ally Nation.
In 2004 I started my first company & know the loneliness you can experience as a E,I,O.
In 2013 I did my first OCR, a Warrior Dash, and I was hooked. Never liked running for running sake, training for OCRs is what really got me to consistently work out.
Since then I have earned medals from Tough Mudder, Spartan, Battle Frog, and a couple smaller events.
The events have been the best were when I was doing the event with another E,I,O.
Yes, getting your significant other, or a general buddy together is great, though my family and friends who are not an E,I,O don’t get me as well as another E,I,O.
There is something special knowing when I am pushing myself for that next milestone that there are others out there training, working, striving, and build where they are.
And, that applies both to OCR Training, and building businesses.
I dream of a world with more Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Owners, for that’s the best way to make the world a better place.
Who do you know that would fit with Active Guild?
Anyone who has the drive to build for the long-term and loves physical challenges too can apply.
