Dan has some fantastic educational videos. He’s been there & done that in the SaaS world.

His website is https://www.danmartell.com/, and you can watch his videos at https://www.youtube.com/user/danvmartell/videos.

Traction EOS – Entrepreneurial Operating System
We have been using Traction as the “operating system” of our business since around the year 2010. Even though our execution has never been perfect, it still has helped us to crystallize our core values, mission, vision, put in proper daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly/annual meeting processes, better metrics etc. Using something like Traction, Rockefeller Habits, Scaling Up, or the Metronome Growth System one-page plan system is highly recommend.
