I think one of the reasons I became a coach within the community is because…I didn’t want people to struggle at the same level I did. Maybe I could help them to have less of that…but as I got through that struggle, I started to see that, wow, I was really bringing some beauty into the world, making a big impact.” Jim Coyle, (2:35)


“…There was a whole system that we had to set up and so it took a little bit of work, but it was well worth it for sure.” Jim Coyle, (5:27)


“….I think that a lot of times we, as entrepreneurs, set up a culture [where] we are the center of the universe that is the business. And that ultimately can cause a lot of problems for the business because everything then has to go through you because that’s what you designed. I don’t think that entrepreneurs realize they designed it that way, and then they whine about it…I do see that they cause their own pain.” Jim Coyle, (5:39)


“When people bring their full self to a company, [that] is when you get the full value from the individual.” Jim Coyle, (22:55)

“…I think that when we are the same person in all aspects of our lives…that’s when we can really bring real value and love…to the world. I think that when we’re putting energy into creating other personas, that doesn’t work, and I do think the EOS Life helps with that.“ Jim Coyle, (23:07)
