In three words:

EOS, the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, is a complete set of simple concepts and practical tools that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses. By mastering this simple way of operating, leadership teams of growth-oriented companies systematically and permanently improve.




With more than 25 years’ experience as a business leader, Made to Thrive was born out of a desire to help people and organizations reach a higher potential than they thought they could. Over the years I’ve seen all kinds of business practices from wonderful to “needs serious improvement,” and everything in between. And that’s when I stumbled onto the best business model I’ve ever seen… a phenomenal model to help organizations THRIVE.  So, I jumped in and became an EOS Implementer® and...

 I’ve never been so excited about a project in my business career! 

As an EOS Implementer, I have a passion for helping entrepreneurs and their leadership teams create clarity and accountability, reduce complexity, and achieve their vision using the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS). The result of tapping into this proven system, which has been successfully implemented in nearly 5,000 companies resulting in an average of 18% annual growth, is a business that’s more profitable and more fun, overflowing into a rich and satisfying work/life balance. I love helping people to live their best lives and build great businesses that positively impact their owners, employees, families, and communities. 

At the end of our journey together, organizations using EOS find that everyone is 100% on the same page with where the company is going and exactly how it's going to get there. 

Companies implementing EOS come from any industry and typically employ between 10 to 250 employees (some smaller, some larger). These companies are growth oriented and willing to be vulnerable, open and honest. I work primarily in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, all of New England, Florida, and Northern California.

If you're interested in learning more, I would be pleased to give you and your leadership team 90 minutes of my time explaining EOS and how we might work together.

What our customers think...

"Kirsten is a tremendous facilitator and implementer of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS). Our company was in need of a significant amount of help in late 2020/early 2021 and Kirsten was recommended to us as someone who could help roll out a management operating system and process to help get the company on track and on the path to growth.

A lively and enthusiastic presenter, Kirsten offers real life business experience to complement her consulting to get everyone on the team rowing in the same direction. She is forthright in her coaching and has become a trusted advisor for our companies and for me professionally.

I would highly recommend Kirsten to anyone looking for an EOS consultant or any type of leadership consulting or coaching."
