This week on our blog
This week I asked Jim Brewer - the best expert I know on EOS - to write the blog. It is a great read and packed with so much information that there are two parts.

This week on our podcast
We get to chat with Jim Brewer, principal at Brewer Leadership on a favorite topic of mine - EOS. EOS is an Entrepreneurial Operating System developed by Gino Wickman and outlined in his book Traction. Even though my current business is just below the threshold to implement a full-blown EOS, there are concepts in this book that we use at Mastery Partners and I would highly recommend that every business owner read Traction. I wish it had been around 20 years ago. It brings value to my business and I know it will bring value to yours. Jim Brewer is always a wealth of information and always an interesting conversation. No time to listen or watch the video? No problem, get the transcript right now!

After 50 years of trying - I finally found that elusive hole-in-one 2 weeks ago at Trophy Club! So thrilled that my wife was there to witness! As soon as I hit it, I said "that's it" - thinking it was just a very good shot, and hoping it would roll close enough for a birdie attempt... As we stood there, watching it hit the front of the green and rolling toward the flag - I was stunned when it disappeared...
