June 10, 2008 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI – If The Growth Coach put a candle on its anniversary cake for every business it has helped over the past five years, the flames would create a blinding blaze. Five years and thousands of healthier businesses later, The Growth Coach celebrates its continued franchising success in more than 140 markets across North America. Built on the foundation of empowering small business owners to survive and thrive, the purely business coaching concept has grown to become the second largest business coaching franchise in the world since opening its doors in 2002.
Despite a challenging economy, The Growth Coach has its sights set high for continued expansion with plans to increase its system to 400 locations within the next five years thus proving its recession resistance. President and Founder, Dan Murphy, stands behind his proprietary "Strategic Mindset Coaching Process" and group workshop format which has driven the success of the business. He says, "Entrepreneurs need coaching in good times and tough times. In good times they want to aggressively grow their businesses. In bad times, they are fearful of losing everything they worked so hard to create. Tough economies are wake-up calls for owners to get their ship in shape for potentially rough waters."
"When I started the company, my mission was to help communities throughout North America by empowering their small business owners to think and act strategically by providing them with the structure, discipline and coaching process to work on themselves and their businesses,." Murphy said. "As we celebrate our fifth year anniversary, I am proud of how far The Growth Coach has come and what our franchise owners have accomplished."
The Growth Coach is utilizing its signature group coaching process, as well as one-on-one coaching, tele-coaching, and other related services, to enable business owners to "fall back in love" with their companies. The Growth Coach also uses a strategic-focusing process, typically in a workshop retreat atmosphere which is proven to help clients think, plan, monitor, adjust and achieve greater results in their businesses and lives by holding them accountable to themselves and indirectly to their peers and coach.
"The Growth Coach is truly one of a kind. Our team of extraordinary business coaches is driven by a passion for helping others," Murphy said. "Every one of our franchisees is committed to the success of their clients and to the success of The Growth Coach as a whole."
Founded in 2002, The Growth Coach is the only pure business coaching franchise system with the single purpose of helping drive success and balance the lives of business owners. Their goal is to help clients gain greater focus so they can work less, earn more and enjoy more fulfilling lives. Clients include small business owners, franchisees, self-employed professionals, high-end sales, financial services professionals and managers from businesses of all sizes.
