#118 Discussion About RentWerx and The CFO Mission Along with The Power of EOS with Phil Mazur

Apr 20, 2021 by Brad Larsen

Today your host Brad Larsen and his guest Phil Mazur discuss The CFO Mission, working with RentWerx and implementing their EOS system that Phil helped with and the changes that have seen over the last two-and-a-half years, plus much more on this episode of the Property Management Mastermind Show.  

Listen as Phil and Brad discuss the issues RentWerx had two-and-a-half years ago because some poor hires and lack of good people keep the checks and balances in place. After looking over the accounts and seeing what was wrong, they dissected the problems and began fixing them piece by piece. Brad also hired a local accounting firm to help put together procedures that would integrate with the systems they already had.

Phil and Brad talk about EOS, Phil being an EOS Implementer and the benefits of having an EOS system in your business. Phil shares what you can expect from your EOS system and what the role of an implementer is. EOS has twenty tools, and the beauty of the tools is that these are what make decision-making simple.

Remember to register for the Property Management Mastermind Conference, where you will learn more about EOS from Sue Hawkes on the main stage and in the much smaller group meetings. 

**Announcement** The Property Management Mastermind Conference is May 19-21 at the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, TX. For more information, go to PMMCon.
