I’ve been in business for over 10 years and have a growing company. But over the last year I have taken my company to a new level because of Doug Barra and his staff. ActionCOACH has helped me to focus on certain areas in my business that were not generating as much business as it should have. I strongly recommend anyone that wants to break through to call Doug and have a one on one session with him.

My coach is my weekly boost! She inspires and motivates me. I have renewed confidence and drive every time we speak. My business and personal life has been completely transformed as a result of having a business coach. As an interior designer, I had lots of creativity but very little business structure. In my first year of coaching I have set up systems, understand my financials for the first time, increased my staff, work with budgets and increased my profits in 2007 by 250%! When I started coaching, I was in personal debt and now I am debt free! My coach has empowered me in every area of life, I am very grateful. Thank you

One of our priorities was working the numbers, knowing what to look for in our job costing, profit and loss, and budgeting maximizing profit. I am proud to say we have accomplished this.
