288: Traction: An Honest Assessment & How it Changed the Game for our Business

Posted by Austin Brawner on January 26, 2021

 

Implementing Traction at your company? Here’s what you should know before you start. 

Many of our clients inside of the Coalition have heard of Traction and have considered trying to implement EOS at their company. If this phrase is new to you, EOS – the Entrepreneurial Operating System – is a set of concepts and tools that can help your team align on a clear vision, make progress towards defined goals, and increase accountability and communication. 

Our team dove headfirst into the task of implementing Traction just over a year ago and we’ve learned a lot since. In this episode, I’m sharing how we adopted the EOS methodology, the pros and cons of using it, and who I think has the most to gain from it. 

If you’re an eCommerce entrepreneur who thinks there might be a better way to run your business, this episode is for you.

Enjoy!
