Pete Worrell's latest thought leadership on how the character of EOMs influences decision making.

How is it that some privately owned businesses end up with terrific new majority owners, the Entrepreneur Owner-Managers (EOMs) moving gracefully into the next interesting and rewarding chapter of their lives, surrounded by friends, their positive legacy assured, their independence powered by the fortune just realized…while others’ outcomes look more like a train wreck? Is it merely luck, or is it more than that?

We think it’s more than that. Successfully striving for achievement, and ultimately fulfillment, leaves clues. Deconstructing the behavior of the highest performing EOMs lets us learn a lot about peak performance and optimal experience.
