“I was a business coach prior to joining ActionCOACH, so I thought I already had a lot of things figured out. ActionCOACH not only helped me to expand my vision of what is possible with my business, but it has equipped me to fully pursue it. The systems, tools and trainings are world class, but the most valuable part of all is the community. The relationships, knowledge-sharing and spirit of abundance amongst the coaches is invaluable, and makes this business even more fun.” Karie Kaufmann, Franchise Partner
"In 2014, I acquired the ActionCOACH franchise and it was the most impactful decision affecting our future that my husband I have ever made. Since acquiring the ActionCOACH franchise we have not only impacted the lives of our clients, their employees and their communities but we have grown so much personally. I now have a team of four, my income is double what I made in the corporate world, we are building our own personal wealth and I work when I want to work and I travel when I want to travel. My only regret, is that I didn’t do it sooner." Heather Yates, Franchise Partner
“I’m proud because what I teach transcends generations. Several clients have brought their teenage kids to sessions, where they learn concepts that I didn’t learn until I was 42 years old. Things like having ownership, accountability and being responsible in every area of their lives.” Doug Winnie, Franchise Partner
