Experts 4 Entrepreneurs is a premier community of entrepreneurs, committed to helping small business owners succeed and live their dream.
Taking your business into the stratosphere is not an easy task. Business owners wear many hats, but can’t be an expert in every area. Surrounding yourself with experts and other business owners can help you get to the next level faster, with less stress and without breaking the bank.
Our approach is built on five key principles:
- What you don't know will kill you: Unconscious incompetence is an invisible destroyer. You must discover and address your blind spots if you're going to succeed.
- Success isn't random: A "shoot from the hip" approach will rarely result in the kind of success you know you can enjoy. An organized approach to learning and change is imperative. You have to apply yourself to the right stuff first.
- Knowledge beats information: Information without application is ineffective. The amount of information out there is astounding, but it becomes overwhelming and impossible to use… unless you have a system. Information only becomes knowledge when it's applied.
- Causes Trump Symptoms: Treating symptoms is great for a short term fix but it's hell on long term success. Focusing on symptoms without addressing the cause will kill you. Tackling the cause head-on is the "big lever" that will produce success.
- Community is better than isolation: Business owners can be their own worst enemy. Independence is great, but you simply CAN'T master every aspect of business yourself. Business success requires expertise from others who have been there, done that.
Are you satisfied with results you're getting? Is your business giving you the life you imagined?

The concept of Experts 4 Entrepreneurs was born in 2008 as the result of market research performed by e4e architects Bill Prenatt and Mason Duchatschek. We launched a series of experimental seminars in 2009 in Springfield, MO. Our purpose was to bring fresh ideas to small business owners who wanted to succeed. We were small but had a great complement of speakers who proved to be very helpful in our development. In June of 2011 e4e's first seminar in St. Louis got rave reviews and began attracting the attention of regional business leaders.
Heavily influenced by the teachings of Michael Gerber’s E-Myth and other key authors, Prenatt and Duchatschek recognized the importance of developing the aspect of community. This became a vital part of the vision to build an organization of experts who could facilitate the success of small business owners. The idea took root and e4e quickly began to take shape as a warm community of like-minded entrepreneurs.
In the spring of 2012 Experts 4 Entrepreneurs incorporated as a functioning for-profit organization with a full complement of thirty enthusiastic partners representing a great variety of business disciplines.
We are now prepared to expand our reach and expertise to other communities who need this kind of organization. Want to know how to start Experts 4 Entrepreneurs in your own city? Learn more.
