I’ve always preached to my clients to make sure they have a guarantee. Most of them just don’t like to do them. Some worry they’ll lose money or their guarantee will sound cheesy. My solution? I explain to them that, yes, you need a guarantee. And you need a solid one your entire company can stand behind.
Recently I’ve discovered an interesting side effect of my clients advancing on their journey to mastering the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®). They learn to increasingly value their time and no longer tolerate anyone wasting it with long, pointless meetings. In fact, I’ve had clients harnessing the power of Level 10 Meetings (L10s) with their vendors. Frankly, that’s music to my ears.
Over the years, I’ve worked with hundreds of business owners as a Certified EOS Implementer®. Some ran amazing companies, and some … not so much. I wouldn’t necessarily say the owners ran crappy companies. I mean they did, I just wouldn’t say that. But I have noticed that all great companies have five things in common.
