Episode Notes

The Entrepreneurial Operating System has helped a lot of leadership teams focus on their goals and stay in sync. Wouldn't it be nice if it was something you can apply to your family and personal life? Well, my friend and coach Mike Kotsis and his wife Jill have done just that for several years now and it has helped their family in better communicating and supporting each other as they achieve their personal goals and better themselves. He shares with us the struggles of getting the system off the ground, dealing with resistance from the family, and how family EOS can help you understand your spouse better and raise responsible kids.
