What would you say to someone considering business coaching? “Do it. The longer you wait the longer it will take to achieve those goals that you are trying to get to. You can get there, but you can get there a lot quicker when you have the guidance, the knowledge, all of the resources that ActionCOACH generally and Peg specifically can bring, you’re going to get there a lot quicker. The gains that you will see, the confidence that you will feel moving forward into some of those areas that you feel challenged, that you’re not sure about the next step, Peg shows you the next step and talks you through it. You come up with a plan so that when you are executing you are moving in the right direction. So, do not wait. Bring Peg on, get some coaching, and Peg and her team and her staff will help you achieve those goals you’re trying to get, and you’ll get there quicker.”

My team and I have been working with Coach Peg for about a year. She brings a certain level of energy and passion to help drive our team forward. We have easily overcome the long distance via video conferencing. She has been able to help us through the journey of personal growth, executive growth, and team growth. She has been a wonderful asset for us and is always available in time of need.

Since I’ve become President, a little over a year ago, coaching as moved me to a higher level of thinking. Instead of just being on the grounds and production oriented, I’m responsible for the entire company and its path. Coaching has allowed me to rethink what the mission and vision is so I can direct things from the top down. One of the key things is the team reflects the leader. So if I’m seeing things that I don’t like in my team, it’s because I’m not doing something right. I have to take ownership, and that’s what you guys have taught me.

Like eating healthy or going to the gym, it’s an investment in yourself. You will reap the rewards through more profitability, and more time for yourself and your loved ones. It is a critical decision to pull yourself out of the day-to-day work, and into the cockpit of the business. Holding yourself accountable first allows you to hold other people accountable more effectively. In the two years of working with Peg, we’ve grown our business revenue by 45%. We have also increased our net profit along the way. Peg does an amazing job of talking me through issues we may be having in our systems, personnel, or culture. Instead of pushing my buttons, she’s been able to get me to push my own buttons to make change in my leadership and management skills. I’m very happy that Peg is on our team.

It’s natural to say ‘Do I really need this?’ when things are going well. But having a coach gives the business an amazing resource. Michelle is a 3rd set of eyes, helping to make the business more successful. I can’t even put a value on it anymore. It is definitely worth every penny! While working with Michelle, my staff issues greatly improved and so did my business growth. In less than one year, my business grew over 18% in revenue while I have been working with Michelle!
Jon Willette, 4 Points Development
I was contacted by Michelle about business coaching, and really didn’t think I wanted to deal with it, but I sat down and talked with them for about an hour. I decided to try their services for a few months, especially since there were no contracts to sign. I’ve been working with the coaches now for about 2 years!
I’ve learned a lot about organization. Coaching has helped my company continue on their path and to be more efficient and effective. They’re like a computer program – if you use them 100% of the time (to their fullest extent) you’ll get a lot out of them. They help with hiring, marketing, goals, issues, problems, customers, reports, problems with partners, etc.
I’ve met a lot of other coaches, and go to the annual conferences, and this group
is one of the best. They are very attentive and I consider them part of my team. They understand my business and they truly care (and they have a lot of fun too).

Owner & President
At the time that I took over the business, I felt so overwhelmed. I did not know what the next step was, so I thought it would be great to have a coach to help me, take me through, and show me the way. When I hired Pete and ActionCOACH it’s like they brought things into focus, and it’s not just a one and you’re done, it’s a continual process. You find out that you don’t know what you don’t know, and you keep learning. Our growth has been dramatic over the last 10 years. We’ve added electric and plumbing to the core heating and cooling, and we’ve grown from 17 families that we’re taking care of as employees, to 29, and doubled our sales.
