In Part 2, Bret Keisling is again joined by consultant and business owner Craig Leary to discuss transitioning to employee ownership, including whether ESOPs are really that complicated, how EO trusts can simplify the process, and how giving employees "skin in the game" turbocharges operations and profitability. Bret re-shares his first EO A-ha Moment.
