Rapid Expansion With a Plan with Amanda Goolsby

Amanda Goolsby is the founder of Aligned Success through which she supports CEO’s and their leadership teams in implementing EOS—a business operating system designed to grow and scale your business with a track record to prove it. She supports top leaders and entrepreneurs in creating more efficient systems in their lives and careers so they have time to focus on other important aspects of their business.

Amanda was a key player in the rapid expansion of OrangeTheory fitness and helped open over 50 locations. Her 15 years experience in the fitness industry combined with the innovative EOS system is a gold mine of knowledge for any business owner looking to level up.

In this week’s podcast episode, Amanda says that it’s important to find people who are also hungry in business because as a business owner, you can only scale if you develop people to take things off of your plate.

There are three valuable milestones that the EOS will help any business entrepreneurs achieve:

  1. Clearly defining their vision
  2. Getting traction to have consistent, disciplined execution to grow the business
  3. Keeping a healthy leadership team 

You will see how showing up for your business, having the right energy, and figuring out the best method of learning can get you on the right track for the growth and scaling of your business.
