Bill, great question! We've been running on EOS now for about 18 months, and are also a small team of 14.

Visionary, Growth Architect

Interesting question. I like the think about communicating in terms of the outcomes this creates. (After all, nobody actually buys a product or service, they buy the outcomes the product or service enables.)
