Podcast 53:58| Download | Spotify| Stitcher | iTunes | Comment

In last week’s podcast, Carrie McKeegan shared how she has been using author Gino Wickman’s EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) to help her grow and manage her team.

This week, we’re diving deeper into the topic by speaking with an entrepreneur who has developed their own customized version of the very same system with impressive results.

Neel Parekh is the founder of MaidThis, a business that offers cleaning services for residential homes and AirBNB rentals.

Neel joins us today to discuss why he chose to use the EOS system in MaidThis, the steps he has taken to implement it, and how smaller businesses can utilize a “Lite” version of EOS to help manage their teams.
