The Growth Coach Recognizes Three Outstanding Franchise Owners

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 06, 2014

Being accountable is a huge part of The Growth Coach’s business and sales coaching process. Taking responsibility for your business – and your leadership – is a vital step in making lasting improvements. On the other side of that coin, The Growth Coach also knows it’s important to recognize a job well done.

That’s why The Growth Coach’s corporate team presented three company awards at The Growth Coach’s annual conference in San Antonio on Feb. 17. Michael Neuendorff, owner of The Growth Coach of the San Francisco Bay Area, was named Coach of the Year; Glenn Smith, owner of The Growth Coach of Houston was recognized with this year’s Go-Giver Award; and Diane Wagner, owner of The Growth Coach of Fort Mill, SC, was given the No Parking Founder’s Award.

“Michael, Glenn and Diane are examples of the best of our franchise family. They really show that if you have the guts to be an entrepreneur and join a system like ours, you follow the process and you take pride in changing lives, you’ll be successful. We give awards like these because we think it’s important to recognize those people who are really the epitome of what The Growth Coach is all about,” Growth Coach President Nathan Owens said.

The Growth Coach, the #1 business and sales coaching franchise for 2013 according to Entrepreneur Magazine, is dedicated to helping small business owners, business leaders, management teams, sales people and self-employed professionals to be more successful while finding the necessary balance between business and life. While The Growth Coach is the world’s largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops, their coaches also provide one-to-one coaching, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and special project.

Coach of the Year: Michael Neuendorff of San Francisco

Michael Neuendorff is celebrating five years as the owner of The Growth Coach of the San Francisco Bay Area and his growth is outstanding. He performance is continually in the top five percent for the entire company and yet he finds time to work the Sales Help Desk, serve on the President’s Forum Advisory Board and mentor new owners.

“When I started working with the Sales Help Desk and the President’s Forum last year, it ushered in a year of being much more involved. I’d established my business and those two opportunities gave me a chance to work much more closely with coaches throughout the system. It’s been a great experience,” he said. “Honestly being more involved has given me a renewed sense of confidence and energy.”

“I was completely surprised by the award. Surprised and very touched. I’m not someone who craves recognition, but it is invigorating to hear about the positive impact I’ve made on the system and my fellow coaches. I’ve worked hard and I definitely appreciate the award,” he added.

Go-Giver Award: Glenn Smith of Houston

Glenn Smith, owner of The Growth Coach of Houston, serves Sugar Land, Katy, Missouri City and the surrounding West Houston communities. Smith’s business has grown substantially in the eight year’s he’s owned his Growth Coach franchise, but he was named this year’s Go-Giver because he still always finds time to help the franchise. In the last year, The Growth Coach has counted on Smith to help with training materials, mentoring of new coaches, webinars and more. He also serves on the company’s President’s Forum advisory board.

“I certainly didn’t expect to win any sort of award for the work that I do within the system … When I’m asked to do those sort of things – like work with the new owners – I just don’t think any different. Of course I’m willing to help. Helping people is just part of being a Growth Coach, but I am honored to have been recognized,” Smith said.

No Parking Founder’s Award: Diane Wagner of Fort Mill, SC

The No Parking Award is The Growth Coach’s Founder’s Award and it’s not given out every year. The award, a play on the No Parking sign Founder Dan Murphy gives to new owners to remind them to get moving, was given to Wagner because of her commitment to getting out into her community and building her business. Wagner opened her Growth Coach franchise in November of 2013 after more than 20 years in corporate American and a decade as the owner of an insurance business.

“I was totally blindsided by the award. The ‘No Parking’ sign from Dan actually means a lot to me. I have it sitting in my office to remind me to get out, meet people, spread the word about The Growth Coach and build my business,” she said. “It’s easy to spend time just getting ready, but you have to get moving. I take that very personally.”

The Growth Coach of Fort Mill serves Fort Mill, Rock Hill and Columbia in South Carolina.

The Growth Coach was recently included in the Bond’s Top 100 Franchises and was recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500” as the #1 Business Coaching and Consulting Franchise for 2013 as well as in the magazine’s “Best of the Best” and “Top Home-Based Business” listings. The company’s Strategic Mindset Process is so effective that it comes with a money-back guarantee.

Three Tips to Your Greatest Business Opportunity

It’s not uncommon to run across Internet ads that offer people a business opportunity. However, how are you to know which one is the best for you? Actually, there are three ways you can determine if a business opportunity is true for you.

Tip 1 – You Can Make Money With The Business Opportunity

You always want to go with a business opportunity that is going to make you money. Keep in mind that the majority of start up businesses will fail within five years; usually because of monetary funds or no knowledge of the business, whether it’s because the person isn’t acquainted with running a business or isn’t acquainted about the business type chosen.

It would seem that people would need the knowledge of their business type or running the business especially if they want to succeed and make money. After all, you have to subtract your income from the expenses to come up with your overall profit. If you find your business is not making a profit, you’ll be closing the doors and turning off the lights on it.

Tip 2 – Work In A Field That You Love

It’s always good to find a business that you actually have expertise in and love to do. For instance, you love to write. Maybe you can work as a writer at a newspaper or freelance writer. People fear that someone will take their money and run. This is especially true if you decide to open a car dealership or repair shop.

With the advent of the Internet, anyone can begin a business doing any number of things. For instance, you love to grow flowers and other things. Use the passion you have for gardening in conjunction with Internet marketing so that you can put together a website that will give people tips on how to garden.

Where you reside at in the world can help you localize your information.

What is affiliate marketing? You’re a salesperson for a company who is trying sell their product. Many companies will work with marketers like this. If you do a little research, you can find companies who will compensate you to market their gardening produce. Remember that gardening is only one of the many business opportunities that you can get into.

Tip 3 – Money and Time To Begin Your Business Opportunity

Anytime you have a business opportunity, make sure you’ve got the money and the time to help you out. It’s important that you have both time and money when you’re trying to get a business off the ground.

If you know you don’t have the money to go full-time, work part-time so that you can build up your savings. You can always outsource any projects you have so that you don’t have to do it all alone.

When you have a business opportunity, use the three tips above to make that business venture successful.

InsuranceFishing.com Shares Three Tips on How to Pick the Correct Home Insurance

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) February 10, 2014

InsuranceFishing.com, a company that specializes in helping consumers connect with local insurance agents, wants to help shoppers compare insurance quotes and help them get the most out of their homeowners insurance. To do this, they would like to offer the following three tips on how to pick the correct home insurance.

Take Your Time

Just because you can find rates quickly and easily doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take your time doing it. This is your home and you need to make sure you have the best protection possible for the best price.

“Think of it this way,” says Chans Weber, a representative of InsuranceFishing.com. “Quick and easy doesn’t mean you should spend no time on this – what it means is that you can research more efficiently. Instead of finding one rate really quickly, research multiple rates in the amount of time you might normally take. It can save you money and get you the coverage that best fits your needs.”

Stay On Budget

You will be presented with a variety of choices and many will be very appealing, but don’t get outside of your price range. The point of online quote tools is to help you find exactly what you need for exactly the right budget.

“Online insurance quote generators can help you find the right balance of policy and affordability as well as keeping the right balance in your bank account,” says Weber.

Be Savvy

If the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Make sure you familiarize yourself with the fine print and if in doubt, stick with an insurance company with a good reputation. When it comes to ensuring your home don’t make risky decisions.
