Toronto entrepreneurs advised to "Wake Up or Die"

By Bizclik Editor
The Toronto chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) is proud to support member Corrine Sandler on November 28 as she launches her new book on how to win in business. Sandler’s Wake Up or Die addresses uncertainty, risks and emotional exposure to winning and losing the battle for growth. 
Entrepreneurship is on the rise in Canada. A 2012 report from CIBC suggests that the next decade might see the strongest startup activity ever in the Canadian economy. EO Toronto contributes to the economy by supporting entrepreneurs on their paths to success. EO Toronto’s 117 members average 41 years of age and generate median revenues of $3 million a year.
Described as “The Dr. Oz of Corporate Health,” Corrine Sandler is an in-demand speaker and a renowned entrepeneur herself. In 2009, she became founder and CEO of Fresh Intelligence Research Corp., a global market research company. By 2012, Fresh Intelligence was ranked at #20 on PROFIT Magazine’s Hot 50, less than four years after opening its doors. Sandler won the RBC Central Division Top Entrepreneur award in 2012 and has made PROFIT’s W100 list of Canada’s top female entrepreneurs for the past two years. She is also a nominee for this year’s Toronto Region Board of Trade Business Excellence Awards, taking place on November 21st. 
Sandler joined EO Toronto in 2011 and credits the organization and its members for valuable learnings that has helped propel Fresh Intelligence forward. “EO is a top-notch network of entrepreneurial professionals helping each other to reach their full potential,” Sandler says. “My dealings with fellow members of the Toronto chapter and Global EOers have boosted my business acumen immeasurably.”
“EO Toronto is all about offering our members valuable peer-to-peer learning, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and global networking opportunities,” says Toronto chapter president Rev. Dr. Bill Dost. “We’re proud to have Corrine as a member and thrilled that she’s released this book. She’s one of the best at laying out exactly what it takes to be a winner in the modern business arena. Wake Up or Die offers valuable advice to our members and helps spread her wisdom to those who haven’t had a chance to hear her speak.”
The book launch and signing for Wake Up or Die will be held on Thursday November 28 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Dominion on Queen Restaurant Bar and Lounge, 500 Queen St. E., Toronto. Copies will be available at the event at an exclusive discounted price.
