Dan Zawacki created Lobster Gram at 24 years old with only $1,000. He left his real job at Honeywell, where he was a top producing sales person, and bootstrapped Lobster Gram into a $15 million dollar company. Today, Dan is a Professional Certified Traction and EOS Implementer at 4MORES with a passion for teaching, facilitating and coaching business owners and their leadership teams on how to get the most out of their companies and live a better life. He passionately believes in helping his clients achieve “THE 4 MORES” 1. More Structure 2. More Growth 3. More Profit 4. More Fun.
Lobster Gram was one of the first companies to have a website way back in 1996. Very successful PR, national radio and TV helped create incredible growth for Dan. As a matter of fact, Lobster Gram was the FIRST company to use Google AdWords. It was a great 30 year run that has allowed Dan to successfully implement EOS in many organizations.
