Meet Katie Koester, Professional EOS Implementer at EOS Worldwide (

Tell us a little about your business. – I help owners and leaders implement the EOS system into their business. EOS, the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, is a complete set of simple concepts and practical tools that have helped thousands of entrepreneurs around the world get what they want from their businesses. Implementing EOS will help you and your leadership team get better at three things: Vision – get everyone in your organization 100% on the same page with where you’re going and how you plan to get there. Traction – instill focus, discipline and accountability throughout the company so that everyone executes on that vision every day. Healthy – help your leaders become a more cohesive, functional, healthy leadership team.

How did you get started in the business? – I worked for a local construction company for over 13 years in the areas of operations and leadership; we used EOS for the last six years. I fell in love with the simplicity of the system, the ability to clarify goals and the results we saw from using it. I decided I wanted to start my own business focused on implementing EOS so that I could help other owners and leaders.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally? – Time! There are always competing priorities and fires. As a leader at a company and now a small business owner, I must get good at focusing my time on the right priorities and not getting distracted.

What has been your most important achievement professionally? – Starting my own business. I loved being a leader in my prior role, but the feeling of starting my own business, doing the work on the good days and bad days and continuing to drive toward success has been my greatest achievement.

Tell us a little about your family. – My husband, Clint, and I have two boys, Weston and Troy, and a little dog named Roo. We live on an acreage east of Lincoln and spend much of our time at sporting events for the boys. We are a big baseball family and love to be outdoors or back home helping on our family farm.

What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life? – Realizing that my kids weren’t getting any younger and I was missing it. I was prioritizing my work over everything else. I had to stop and admit that it was on me that I was missing that time and that I needed to adjust my priorities. Once I did that, things got a lot more enjoyable at both home and work!

Who inspires you? – Military Veterans – I have family and friends who have served, and I take our gift of freedom very seriously. Some of our Veterans struggle with battles long after they leave the military and their strength and resilience to keep going every day in the face of all of that inspires me.

What is your favorite quote or the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? – “Always bet on yourself, no matter what the odds are. It means more to be in the race than to watch the victory laps from the stands.” – Pete Wentz.

If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be? – Mel Robbins – she is so inspirational and relatable. I have read all her books and listen to her podcast regularly. I appreciate that she gives you practical tools to apply to your life, but also shows her vulnerable side when she doesn’t have all her s*it together!
