So, who is ActionCOACH?

Emerging as an overnight success in 1993, founder of ActionCOACH, Brad Sugars, addressed the education needs of small to medium sized enterprises throughout Australia and New Zealand. Through Brad’s seminars and workshops, business owners in these markets, for the first time, had access to hundreds of amazingly powerful, yet simple and cost effective sales, marketing and team building strategies, designed to transform their businesses and their lives.

Since that time, over 500,000 people have attended the ever popular ActionCOACH seminars. More importantly, over 4,000 business owners globally have discovered that engaging an ActionCOACH Business Coach was the smartest decision they have ever made.

What is Business Coaching?

Pioneers in the industry since the early 1990’s, ActionCOACH and Business Coaching have become synonymous with business performance and growth. Not to be confused with Life and Personal Coaching, Business Coaching offers a holistic approach to addressing the needs and knowledge gaps related to succeeding in business.

In such a time poor world, many SME owners and corporate executives struggle to keep abreast of technological and strategic innovation launches that when utilised will aid them in succeeding in business, and staying ahead of the competition.

As an ActionCOACH you will be trained to create marketing and educational materials such as books, tapes and video programs.

As an ActionCOACH, your average week will include; meeting prospective clients, coaching existing client, preparing and delivering seminars, conducting in-house training programs, critiquing your clients marketing pieces, performing Alignment Consultations or selling the ActionCOACH Planning Program.

In addition, you will be provided with all the tools and knowledge resources and you will learn how to use them..

What level of on-going training do I get?

The initial ActionCOACH 10-day training program is only the beginning of your journey as an ActionCOACH. As an ActionCOACH Business Coach, your learning journey is ongoing and stimulating, with reading, seminars, workshops, conferences and internet-based chat groups and forums all part of the process. As a Business Coach and Business Leader, it is your duty to continue to learn and remain ahead of market trends, the greater educated you are, the smarter your clients business decisions can be.

What level of support do I get?

ActionCOACH has a two-tiered administration and support system, providing franchisees with the best of both worlds. The ActionCOACH Head Office is responsible for the overall administration, direction, product development and marketing, while your Master Licensee will provide initial and ongoing support and guidance. Ensuring help and guidance is never too far away.

So, how do I make an income as an ActionCOACH?

As an ActionCOACH Business Coach, your main source of income will be derived through Mentoring Clients, who be paying you a monthly coaching fee. Seminars are just one of the lead generator tools that you will use to source clients. From each seminar, you will be consistently aiming for at least two Mentoring Clients, in addition to those that you convert from the other proven ActionCOACH prospecting techniques. Your monthly income will only be limited by your desired rate of growth. One thing's for sure; you'll be pleasantly surprised at the end of each month. Keep in mind; you also have the option to run your business from a home office, reducing your overheads and maximising your profits.

Do I need a Consulting or Coaching Background?

No, however, a strong business background is essential. If you have owned or managed a business before, or have a background in sales, then this is a great business opportunity for you. As a Business Coach, you will need a sound understanding of business principles, an entrepreneurial spirit, a driven forward thinking attitude; and a healthy dose of motivation won't go astray either! Be prepared to demonstrate to ActionCOACH the passion you have for helping others and the amount of drive you have to succeed in this business.

Who will be my target clients?

It's hard to think of a business that in some way would not benefit from the suite of ActionCOACH's products and services. The majority of business owners who are Owner/Operators look to introduce systems that can and will generate greater profit and growth, that will provide them with a great life work life balance; and that will produce better productivity from their team members.

Experience has shown that most start-up businesses don’t have the financial resources to afford the ActionCOACH coaching services or are still in the development and establishment phase of their business cycle. Typically, start-up businesses don’t normally fit our ideal business profile.

How will I get leads and sales?

As you would imagine, being an ActionCOACH Business Coach you will have all the latest lead generation and sales techniques at your disposal. From seminars, to local and national advertising and pr, as an ActionCOACH you will be using the full suite of the most powerful, tried-and-tested marketing tools available to develop your business. As ActionCOACH is a market leader, you will have access to the very latest thinking and resources, keeping Head Office and our Business Coaches ahead of the pack.

What are the keys to my success as an ActionCOACH Business Coach?

A successful ActionCOACH is results driven, motivated and willing to follow an established and proven system. Business Coaches who lead the field around the world not only run a highly profitable business and have exceptional client relationships; they also contribute to the growth and development of the franchise worldwide. Our surveys show franchisees succeed because of an eagerness to learn, a desire to help others, a willingness to work long hours to get the momentum going, good people and relationship building skills, sales ability or a willingness to learn and apply sales systems, solid self-discipline and family support, an ability to take direction when needed and to read when necessary, having money in reserve and being willing to invest it, a willingness to take risks and to ask for help, and being well organized and a good planner.

There are cases where ActionCOACH Franchisees have failed, common reasons for failure include not following the proven system, not committing enough time nor energy to the business, not committing enough financial resources to marketing or advertising opportunities, going ahead despite family opposition, spending money on the good things in life before they had earned it, not enjoying selling to other business people, not having the self-discipline to cope with the responsibility of owning a small business, and being under-funded and misleading the franchisor on the amount of funds available.

Will the ActionCOACH business work in my area?

The funny thing about business is that it doesn't matter whether you sell paperclips or airplanes, one thing you can almost count on is that pretty much every business owner you talk to (wherever they live) will want more customers, more revenues and more profit, the three things that they can't change, well not directly, anyway. And while every enterprise has a unique set of challenges, they all rely on customers, revenues and profits. And that's where your services will be in hot demand. So in a nutshell, yes, this system will work in your area, simply because most of the challenges Business Owners face are universal.

How many hours will I work as an ActionCOACH, and should I employ anyone?

Like with all new entrepreneurial ventures, the first 12 months in business will be the hardest, not only because of the amount of time and effort you will need to out it, but because the work and challenges that you will encounter will be different. The learning curve that our franchisees go through is steep. Being new at Business Coaching, you will experiment with the various ActionCOACH systems, discovering the strategies and procedures that will work for you, your business and your clients.

We recommend that when you have between 8 and 12 clients and that you hire a Personal Assistant so you can leverage your time more effectively. As you settle into your new business, you should be working around 2 hours per week per client with one hour spent coaching and the other doing behind the scenes preparation work.

When purchasing an ActionCOACH Franchise, what contracts do I have to sign?

You will be required to sign a full legally binding Franchise Agreement in line with local Franchise and Contract Laws. You can go through the Uniform Franchise Offering Circular with your advisors. Our obligations, the obligations of the Master Franchisee's and your obligations will be clearly laid out.

What is the term of the contract as an ActionCOACH Franchisee?

The usual term for an ActionCOACH Franchise Agreement is seven years. After this time, you will be eligible to renew for additional five year terms provided that you have conducted your franchise in compliance with the terms of the initial ActionCOACH agreement and that you comply with certain conditions, sign our updated form of Franchise Agreement, and pay a Renewal Fee.

As an ActionCOACH Franchisee, are there any business guarantees?

Truthfully, no. Your ActionCOACH Franchise is a business and the result it is up to you to create. ActionCOACH will never promise any specific results, nor will we guarantee that any of your goals will become a reality. You see, just like you're the coach to your clients, we're your coach and you're the player. It's up to you to take the field. We will push you, cajole you, help you, be there for you and even do some things with you, but at the end of the day you still need to do the work.

Only YOU can ever be truly accountable for your own success and at ActionCOACH we know this to be a fact. We guarantee to give you the best service we can; to answer your questions promptly and with the best available information. We also promise to keep you up to date with new improvements and constantly keep striving to make your ActionCOACH system better and more powerful. And we're committed to making you successful, whether you like it or not.

So, how do I express interest?

We are just as diligent as you are in wanting to make sure the ActionCOACH opportunity is the right fit for you. Showing your interest by learning more about us is only first step. The next is organizing a one-on-one interview with your Master Franchisee who will ask you to complete an application form and a referee's page before starting your Due Diligence. Several meetings with other coaches will follow as we both want to make sure you make a good decision based on relevant information. You can submit your application form at Apply directly and submit your application form at caribbean.actioncoach.com/apply.php. We will be in contact with you shortly.
