Head Coach

S. David Drewelow

As the head coach and master licensee of ActionCOACH Heartland, my wife and I founded our business in March of 2002.  Today we have franchise partners and coaches in eight offices throughout Iowa and Nebraska.  I help people determine if getting into business for themselves is the right thing to do and if  ActionCOACH and business coaching is a good fit.  I also recruit for area managers in our open markets and business coaches for our franchise partners in established markets.  My team also provides on-going training, coaching and support for all coaches in our territory.


My priorities in life are my faith, family, and fun – fun is where my work comes in!


As a coach, one of my passions to help professionals and business owners maximize their potential. When I work with people, I stress the importance of “working harder on yourself than you do your job.”


Brad Sugars & David

My purpose in life is to “inspire people to change their thinking” because when that happens, I know people will experience changed results.


I am a small town kid who grew up in a family business.  My dad taught me about business and life.  That is why I love working with people who truly desire to make a positive impact in their community.  Right out of college I worked in media and then invested 20 years in leadership roles with the Jerry Lewis Telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  In 2002 I became a master licensee with ActionCOACH.  In 2011 I was a founding partner of a new venture with The John Maxwell Team, a new leadership training and certification company founded by best-selling author and speaker, Dr. John C. Maxwell.

Family & Community

My wife and best friend, Lonna has been my bride for 30+ years and we have two boys and three grandsons.  I am continually on the go, active in Rotary, several non-profits, local Christian organizations and my church.   My passions in life include my grandsons, music, photography, travel, sports and life long learning.

Speaker & Author

As a public speaker, I talk with businesses, civic organizations, non-profits and educational institutions on topics of business and leadership.  I co-authored my first book “GPS for Success” in 2006.  My next book in development, “The Boy with a Heart Moo Moo” is subtitled ‘Leadership Lessons from an Underdog.’  Our projected release date is the spring of 2020.
