Stuart’s entrepreneurial journey started at the age of 7. Selling candy on the playground for a healthy profit, mowing lawns and selling software were early memories.
He founded SWI at 27 years old. He bootstrapped the company, building it up to $9 million annual revenue. Over his 12 years of running the company he learned many lessons. Despite building a successful company, Stuart was suffering from many sleepless nights. The business was running him.
Stuart joined a leadership peer group and was introduced to EOS and Traction. He implemented EOS with great success. Stuart never looked back and through fixing key people issues, gaining accountability and solving critical issues he reclaimed control of his business and sleep!
Stuart’s company was eventually acquired. He worked for the buyer for 2 years, grew the US subsidiary and helped transition in new management. After some soul searching and the desire to get back to his entrepreneurial roots, Stuart retired from the company to pursue his passion of helping others build successful and healthy companies.
I’ve worked with Stuart on my business. He brings EOS and a sincere passion for helping people get what they want from their businesses. He has the ability to help leaders bring issues and opportunities to light in the context of EOS and Traction. I’d highly recommend working with his firm!
Tom Danielson – CEO, Cinch Cycling
Stuart is like an angel that came out of the sky… or rather from the Traction book. His passion for EOS and helping others succeed is totally apparent. I’d highly recommend his work if you want to get to the next level with your business.
Brian Rocheleau – CEO, The Blind Cafe
I have worked with Stuart for years. He is a committed and excellent leader. He has the ability to get the best out of employees, clients and business. I am currently working with him on implementing EOS internally and he demands a lot, but there is no doubt he believes in his craft with all of his heart. You’ll be absolutely pleased working with him implementing EOS
