Area Business Leader Opens Lehigh Valley ActionCOACH Office

Karen Daly Smith joins global network of business coaches supporting small business

Bethlehem, PA, February 10, 2008 --( ActionCOACH, the world's number one business coaching company, is expanding in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania with the addition of Karen Daly Smith to the ActionCOACH team.

Smith, a local commercial real estate executive, recently earned her ActionCOACH certification and has opened a business coaching practice from offices in Easton.

Master Licensee Don Schin recruited Smith into the ActionCOACH program with high expectations.

"Karen has 20 years of solid business experience as regional managing director at two well-known commercial real estate companies," he said. "She is a people person, with tremendous integrity, and has developed a large client base and wide network of business partners. As an ActionCOACH, Karen will have a great opportunity to leverage and expand her existing relationships."

Smith had an interest in business coaching, and learned of ActionCOACH from a newspaper article and an ActionCOACH sponsored workshop. She then thoroughly researched the company before becoming a franchisee.

"My network of clients and associates is my most valuable asset. Before I would risk those relationships by proposing a new business partnership, I had to be prepared to deliver immediate value," she said. "After reviewing ActionCOACH's comprehensive training programs and certification requirements, I joined the team. Today, I confidently approach clients assured that my unique experience and knowledge, combined with the ActionCOACH solutions, can make their businesses more profitable and their lives more enjoyable."

ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching franchise. Started by entrepreneur and CEO Brad Sugars in 1993, the company is one of the fastest growing franchises in the world, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. To learn more about business coaching and ActionCOACH, go to
