Why Choose Joan

Why work with me? I am a successful entrepreneur myself, and I’ve been using EOS in my business since 2011.  I’ve owned my current business since 1999, and like all entrepreneurs, I have had all the highs and lows of owning a business. I’ve been hands-on in all aspects of finance, HR, IT, operations, and legal/compliance, so I can provide relevant experience on a range of issues.  

I implemented EOS/Traction in my business and have been using successfully since 2011.  EOS has freed me up to stop working IN my company and start working ON my company.  EOS has freed me up enough to have time to be an implementer for other businesses.  My professional experience includes a 10 year career in the medical device industry, several years as an English teacher, an eternity as a waitress and bartender, and a few other startup companies.

“Joan is a fantastic trainer. She proved herself to have that rare ability to make our time both enjoyable and extremely productive.”
