About John Fulwider

John Fulwider

Traction Coach / EOS Implementer, Visionary, and Founder, gear80

John loves helping visionaries—the people who risk it all to create real value and real jobs in real communities.

John’s helped over a dozen companies get Traction—fast-growing businesses like Bulu Group and CFO Systems that have both made the Inc. 5000 list multiple years in a row. Three of his clients are fellows of the prestigious Pipeline Entrepreneurs program.

Previously John worked seven years one-on-one with visionaries around the country as their executive coach. While the individual visionary moved forward, there was always a missing piece: How to get the team executing on the entrepreneur’s vision with discipline and real accountability. John found the missing piece in the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®) described in the book Traction, and got trained by Traction author Gino Wickman and his team.

Over and over again John’s seen the tremendous difference Traction has made in people’s businesses and, frankly, their lives. So that’s why all he does is help visionaries and their leadership teams get Traction and grow their businesses faster than they ever thought possible.

John also volunteers in the entrepreneurial community. He’s a Pipeline Entrepreneurs module facilitator, a Techstars Startup Week and Startup Weekend organizer, and he mentors teams at pitch competitions.

John’s a happy husband, proud papa, and advocate of alliteration. John’s been married 20 years to Jami, a UNMC nursing professor. Their three cute kids are 7, 5, and 2. And, John’s a fun-loving foodie who can recommend the best place to eat in a waist-expandingly long list of cities.

Day-to-day business life is a whirlwind—136 issues come at you from up, down, left, right, and diagonally. We’ve discovered that strengthening the Six Key Components of your business just tends to calm. Everything. Down.

I give you proven tools and support to strengthen your:


Get everyone in the company 100% on the same page with where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.


Surround yourself with great people, top to bottom, because you can’t achieve a great vision without a great team.


Get ego-free, personality-free information giving you an absolute pulse on the health of your company.


Become great at solving problems throughout the organization and making them go away forever.


Systemize your company so it becomes more efficient, more effective, more fun and more manageable and ultimately more profitable.


Bring discipline and accountability into your company, taking the vision down to the ground and making it real. Vision without traction is hallucination.
