Have you ever heard the saying “Can’t see the forest through the trees? Well that pretty much sums up my business challenges, up until Marcia and ActionCOACH. 

As a company we desperately needed to grow and expand our offering to better capitalize on some of the better opportunities out there…but I was so bogged down in the day-to-day operations, that I could barely get out of my own way, much less grow or scale a company. That became very frustrating for me. It was around that time that I heard about Marcia and business coaching, and I immediately said that that was something that the company needed to explore. What I wasn’t expecting was how much of an impact it would have on me, and how much I needed coaching as a business owner.

I can remember one of our very first meetings…in walks this vibrant little lady, and she’s asking me about the vision for ademke and using terms like business chasis, and KPI’s and eating frogs. If you don’t know those terms mean in a business context and you’re a business owner running a business, then you may want to have a conversation with Marcia well. I think on some level we can all relate to that commercial with Dave, as a small business owner who’s filling all the roles in a company. We sit back and laugh, but the reality of it is, that as a business owner you have to lead, you have to learn leverage, and you have to learn the fundamentals of profit. You have to be able to step outside and see the bigger picture. I can say without hesitation that ActionCOACH has done that for me.

The whole program, the whole exchange has been game changing for us . Not only have we achieved the objectives we set out, in a fairly short period of time, but we now have a more systemized and structured plan for the way forward, and a roadmap for continued success. For that I am eternally grateful to Marcia and her team for that experience.
