Former Banker and Fitness Instructor Has Joined ActionCOACH in Malaysia

Maresa likens business to sports and feels that business should be run like a life-long marathon.

Las Vegas, NV, --( Maresa Ng has joined an ActionCOACH business coaching firm headed by Jeevan N. Sahadevan in Malaysia.

Her office will be located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Prior to joining ActionCOACH, Maresa was in the field of banking.

At her previous appointment, Maresa was able to raise the required funding for small and large sized companies. She has also seen the successful listing of some companies currently listed on the Malaysian Stock Exchange.

Coaching comes naturally to Maresa. Even before she joined ActionCOACH, she was coaching a personal training business and feels that being equipped with ActionCOACH's proven and tested tools; she will now be able to coach business owners successfully.

"I have always wanted to make a difference in the lives of business owners and have long harbored the dream of business ownership," she said. "I could not have realized these dreams in the corporate world, and decided to start my own business. Moreover, my peer-group is mostly made up of business owners and I have always admired these people for their guts and determination to be successful in a highly competitive world."

Maresa feels that owing to her banking background, she will be in a unique position to help the owners of small and medium sized businesses.

"It takes one who has worked in a bank, to understand what banks look for in companies prior to lending support and funds to them," she said. "My experience in the banking industry will give business owners the knowledge of tapping the banking industry, be it borrowing funds, getting your company listed, or bringing in investors, private equity or venture capitalists, among other things."

Maresa was impressed by ActionCOACH.

"When I first heard of ActionCOACH, my natural response was that I should have known about this company much earlier," she said. "Business coaching is a new concept in Malaysia. It is a great idea in a country, which is saturated with small and medium sized enterprises."

An active rock climber, mountain and road biker, as well as an indoor cycling instructor at commercial gyms, Maresa enjoys coaching and teaching – something she realized during her full-time job teaching people to rock climb.

Taking from the sports analogy, in business it is not good enough to know how to run - one must also know how to truly optimize energy during a marathon, save energy when required, and burst with power when needed, "she said. " Business owners need to think of their business like running a lifetime marathon in order to succeed."

ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. To learn more, go to
