Michael Erath is the founder of The TRACTION Hub, a company committed to helping entrepreneurs live their ideal lives by implementing the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®). As a lifelong entrepreneur, Michael spent the first 25 years of his career in the hardwood industry, where he started and grew businesses to nearly $50 million in revenue. As a former member of the Young Presidents Organization’s (YPO) Southern 7 Chapter and the Entrepreneurs Organization’s (EO) Columbus and Arizona Chapters, Michael has discovered a passion for helping entrepreneurs systemize and scale their businesses and live a life of freedom. Michael and his wife reside in Phoenix, Arizona. To learn more, or to reach Michael, visit https://TheTractionHub.com.
Michael’s journey inspired him to help others avoid the mistakes he made by bringing discipline, accountability, and balance into their work and personal lives. In Rise, Michael recounts his remarkable story with brutal honesty and self-reflection. He demonstrates how systemizing a business and building healthy, open, and honest leadership teams can help business leaders free themselves from the control their business has over them and find time to pursue other passions.
Part refreshingly honest memoir and part guide for entrepreneurs, Rise will show you how to get out of your own way and live your ideal life.
