I had the opportunity to work with Doug and ActionCoach during the past year and have to recognize their system, approach and tools are fantastic. With Doug I was able to set my priorities right and more importantly to lay out a robust plan to execute them. As a result my business is flourishing and my outlook for the future has never been that positive because I know I have the right tools and support to be successful!

Doug is an outstanding business coach. I strongly encourage any established business owner to attend a webinar or workshop to gain a sense of his actionable insights. He helps me think strategically and ties insights to action. I know several business owners who have taken their business to higher levels and exceeding expectations.

I can wholeheartedly say Doug has given me the tools and mindset to succeed as an entrepreneur. Prior to having Action Coaching I was running in circles trying to grow, learn, and survive in the small business world. I have obtained knowledge and value beyond the business world. If you are r at to take your business to the next level and are serious about putting in the work this organization should be your next call!

Doug and Jody are focused on helping you to have more freedom. They've helped me to grow my business with structure. They not only have great advice, but tools and action plans for everything. Last year I was able to take several weeks off without a single emergency call.

We have been working with Jody from Action Coach for the past year - and what a year it has been! Having started my own business 20+ years ago I had no idea the extraordinary difference having a coach on my side would make. I had grown accustom to making all the decisions as a business owner - which have not always been easy. Having Action Coach be able to show us different perspectives has allowed FrameWorks to make decisions that have directly impacted our bottom line ($$) and more importantly given us access to discovering ways to continue being successful without as much struggle and stress, which in turn has made a HUGE difference in the life of my family. I LOVE my work with Action Coach....it has forced me to be a better manager, a better boss, a better partner, a better human being - it has forced me to create a future, rather than the future just happening.

Hiring Team Sage was probably one of the best decisions I've made in my business. The biggest issue for us was that we had no one to turn to for questions and advice. Because they deal with so many businesses like mine, they give us the benefit of tested methods so we don't make the same mistakes over & over again. They have helped us with the hiring process, helped us with getting our financials in order and specifically doing more of what's profitable. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to grow their business.

We have been working with ActionCOACH Team Sage for over 3 years now and I love to shout it from the rooftops as often as I can! Jody Johnson is our coach, our mentor and even sometimes our business therapist. She's also our #1 fan! She has helped guide us down the path that has more than doubled the size of our company, tripled the size of our building and infinitely encouraged us to be the best small business owners that we could be. Owning and operating a small business is not for the faint of heart. It takes a lot of courage and determination and there is always calculated risks. If you fit this profile and you're committed to building your brand, the possibilities are endless.

I have been a client of Team Sage for over a decade. Their commitment to small business, and to the person lives of business owners and their employees is extraordinary. Jody and Doug did a significant amount of due diligence before joining Action Coach. The vetted out the questions and doubts that I had prior to coming on board with their leadership. In addition to the wealth of knowledge they brought to the table, the worldwide community of other Action Coaches share their experience and expertise as well. Team Sage has the wisdom, maturity and communication skills to draw on that resource when clients present situations or industry circumstances out of their scope.

They care deeply about their clients and community. They take the trust and confidence clients bring to them seriously.

Their guidance was key in our ability to navigate the economic down turn and come out of it stronger, better educated and in a better economic position through their coaching.

I recommend Team Sage without hesitation.

Team Sage is an important part of my business. I went to art school before starting my business and I don't know where that business would be without the coaching and education they have given me.

Just attended the first ever South Florida Business Excellence Forum and Awards and I have to tell everyone what an amazing event it was. The speakers were all great and I learned how to think bigger. I am humbled and grateful.

We've been working with ActionCOACH Team Sage for several years now. They are not the only coaching and training firm we have worked with, but they are only one that has had the depth and breadth of expertise that we keep them as a core part of our organization year after year.

From personal leadership development coaching for our top team to implementing a rigorous recruitment approach to best practices in managing finances, they have helped us ramp up our learning curve years faster than we would have otherwise. We would be at least three years behind where we are today without them.

My company has worked with Action Coach for over 3 years now, and we are ecstatic with our results. Jody has been working side by side with us as our full time coach for over a year, and it was when we took the leap of faith to hire her full time that we really saw the results come in. It takes a lot of commitment on our end as business owners, and as long as you're willing to put in the work then I highly recommend using their services. An added bonus that we never expected at the beginning is the network of businesses they work with has also helped our own network grow. It's a win-win for everyone!

This company is a scam. They take your money and provide zero value. They did not help me, they did not honor their 'guarantee' and it was a waste of money. Their coaches do not know the program they are promoting and have a hard time grasping basic business practices and are glorified overpriced admin staff. They will try and move your whole business to their system so you are forced to work with them since they have all your systems. They are overpriced, you can find better coaches for a fraction of the cost. Their sales funnel is great and full of promises but their actual practices are far from it. From the look and feel of their offices and their outdated material, this is a dated franchise that will not help you grow your business.
