After years of recruitment from her husband Carmen left her corporate career to work in her family construction business as the Chief Accountability Officer. Watching years of the company’s explosive growth she realized the business had hit the ceiling and decided to leverage the Entrepreneur Operating System (EOS) to break through; following several challenging meetings trying to self-implement the team hired a professional implementer to unlock the potential of the business. In less than 6 months the company saw 35% growth in top line revenue and double-digit contribution to the bottom-line growth coupled with a culture of accountability and teamwork. After strengthening the 6 key components of the business it was sold to a national brand for significantly more than the original offer prior to EOS Implementation.
