As friends and teammates can share experiences, provide support and give advice.    As a business owner, finding valuable peer business relationships and opportunities for sharing and learning can be very difficult.   A business owner often has to rely on their own abilities and experience to make decisions regarding important business issues, tactics or strategy.   They certainly can and do solicit input from subordinates, however, the perspective and advice of a successful and experienced peer can be extremely valuable and help avoid costly mistakes. Organized peer groups can offer tremendous opportunities for mutual support, learning, advice and different perspectives for a business owner, executive or manager.
