Episode Summary

Mike Paton is a good buddy of mine who has shown me the ropes to the Entrepreneurial Operating System®. He first discovered EOS about a dozen years ago while trying to take a $7 million company to the next level. Feeling stuck and quite frustrated by the endeavor, his search for answers has led him to Gino Wickman and the simple holistic power of EOS. Having learned from entrepreneurs for most of his life, he quickly became an advocate and joined the Professional EOS Implementer Community®. Since then, he has been working hard to give back as an award-winning speaker, best-selling author of “Get A Grip: An Entrepreneurial Fable”, certified EOS Implementer® conducting more than 1,400 full-day sessions with the leadership teams of more than 135 companies, and Global Ambassador of EOS Worldwide.
