Marisa Smith 
Series leader, Marisa Smith, is a Professional EOS® Implementer who is passionate about helping entrepreneurs and leadership teams get what they want from their businesses. As an entrepreneur and business owner herself, Marisa found EOS® to be extremely beneficial. She began implementing EOS® in her own company in 2014 and quickly felt relief from the frustrations that had been plaguing her for years. She started speaking to clients and agency colleagues about her firm’s success, and quickly developed a passion for helping other entrepreneur implement EOS® in their own companies. She now devotes all of her time to working with entrepreneurial leaders to clarify, simplify and achieve their visions. 

Attending these events will allow you to ask questions, get to know other small business owners, and learn fundamental EOS® principles.

Your Business and EOS®

Entrepreneurs often find themselves running into unexpected challenges within their business. Many work longer hours than expected, receiving less return on their investment of time and money than originally planned. Common frustrations that entrepreneurs experience include:


Is balancing time between business and family life a challenge?


Are all your people on the same page?


Do you feel you need to grow to stay competitive, but can’t afford it?


Is your company revenue stuck at a plateau?


Have you tried strategies from the latest great business books, but nothing seems to stick?

If any of these obstacles are true for you, attending the Sterling Heights’ EOS® webinar series is the first step to overcoming them.

What Local Business Owners Had to Say About the Initial EOS® Program Launch in March:

“Mike Kotsis was a nurturing facilitator who had the unique ability to pull me out of my comfort zone and take a deep look at the issues that were holding my business back from our true potential. I found that the ‘Get a Grip on Your Business’ workshop was an excellent opportunity for DASI Solutions to inspect the core values of our organization and establish measurable action items going forward.”

“Our company has utilized elements of the EOS Operating System in our sales and distribution facilities with great success.  The fundamentals of the program are thoughtful and success can be experienced quickly.”
