Restaurant Unstoppable with Eric Cacciatore

Gino Wickman is the author of many books, including Traction: Get A Grip On Your Business, Rocket Fuel: The One Essential Combination That Will Get You More of What You Want from Your Business, The EOS Life: How To Live Your Ideal Entrepreneurial Life, What The Heck Is EOS?, and others. Gino's creation, E.O.S., stands for Entrepreneurial Operating System, and his book Traction is the book that teaches you the systems in EOS.

Gino Wickman skipped college and went right into the workforce, saving money while working at a machine shop straight out of high school. After four years of working and saving money, Gino decided to start his entrepreneurial journey. After a few essential failures and minor successes, Gino found himself working in real estate. By his early 20's, he was making 6 figures in real estate. He worked for his dad, Floyd Wickman, in his own real estate training company. When that company sold, Gino stayed on for a year and a half to transition the new team. Finally, Gino started creating EOS in his mid-late 20's. Since then, across 20 years, Gino built and fleshed out the EOS and wrote 8 books to guide users and adopters. Today, over 150,000 companies round the world utilize EOS.
