About the Authors

Gino  Wickman

An entrepreneur since the age of 21, Gino has always had an obsession for learning what makes businesses and entrepreneurs thrive.

At 25, Gino took over the family business, which was deeply in debt and in need of help. After turning the company around and running it for seven years, he and his partners successfully sold the company.

Gino then set out to help entrepreneurs and leaders get what they want from their businesses.

Based on his years of real-world experience, Gino created the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®), a practical method for helping companies achieve greatness.

Gino has personally delivered more than 2,000 full-day sessions for more than 135 companies, helping them implement EOS. He is also the author of the award-winning, best-selling book Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business, which has sold over 1 million copies, as well as five other books in the Traction Library that have sold almost 2 million copies.

Today Gino’s focus remains on helping entrepreneurs and leaders, maximize their freedom, creativity, and impact through teaching and speaking on the following topics:

👉ENTREPRENEURIAL LEAP — Gino’s passion project, focused on helping entrepreneurs-in-the-making, is packed with real-life stories and practical advice. Entrepreneurial Leap is a simple how-to manual to help you start a better start-up.

👉ROCKET FUEL — Rocket Fuel details the integral roles of the Visionary and Integrator™ and explains how an effective relationship between the two can thrive. When these two people come together to share their natural talents and innate skill sets, they have the power to reach new heights for virtually any company or organization.

👉EOS (ENTREPRENEURIAL OPERATING SYSTEM) — EOS is a set of simple concepts and practical tools used by more than 140,000 companies around the world to clarify, simplify, and achieve their vision.

👉THE EOS LIFE — You deserve to live your ideal life. As an entrepreneurial business leader, you already know how hard it can be just to create a non-ideal life. Now let Gino show you how to create the entrepreneurial life you always hoped and dreamed it could be.

👉THE 10 DISCIPLINES FOR MANAGING AND MAXIMIZING YOUR ENERGY — Each of these disciplines is fast, simple, and powerful. They will help you expand, focus, and manage your energy. Each one of them is fully customizable to you, because you are a unique individual.
