Las Vegas, NV --(PR.com)-- Nora acquired the ActionCOACH Franchise in April this year. Although she recently joined the ActionCOACH Business Coaching Community, of 1,200 Coaches Wordlwide, represented in 26 countries across the world, she is no novice to the world of coaching and business.
"ActionCOACH provides me with the systems, processes, and content that allows me, and the Business Owners I coach, the freedom to enjoy a balanced lifestyle," Zeelie said.
After completing her coach training with an ICF accredited coaching institute, she felt she was missing a crucial part in the "Be + Do = Have" equation.
According to ActionCOACH founder and CEO Brad Sugars, success is a predetermined formula. Sugars believes one of the true, tested principles of success revolves around the "Be + Do = Have" formula, which means you first need to "be" the person that attracts success and then "do" the actions that will bring about the success or result in the things you desire.
"I soon realized I was still missing the 'Do' aspect in the 'Be + Do = Have' equation, Zeelie said. "With ActionCOACH, I will now have all I need in order to combine a powerful offering to business owners."
Master Licensees Pieter Scholtz and Harry Welby-Cooke welcomed Zeelie to their team in South Africa.
Zeelie brings 15 years experience in the retail industry, seven of which were spent as Franchisee of Vodashop Kolonnade in Pretoria. She also has experience in the fields of property, travel, conferences, events and mortgage origination.
Zeelie made many strides in her previous businesses and was able to build her Franchise outlet from an initial investment of R350000 in 2000 to selling it for R8.5 million in 2007.
"My franchise was one of the top performing stores in South Africa and was awarded Vodacom's Excellence Award five times," she said. "There was also a need to double the store size after two years of trading due to huge growth in customer base."
Zeelie found the ActionCOACH Franchise to be a perfect fit for her.
"Having been a business owner myself, the system and the relentless energy of everyone involved with the success of ActionCOACH, confirmed to me that this would be a perfect match for my own drive to ensure business re-education for the SME market in South Africa," she said.
With a strong desire to give back to the business community in South Africa, Zeelie believes ActionCOACH being the number one in its category worldwide, also has value additions in the form of systems, processes and culture that are not easily found in other franchises.
"In South Africa today, it is vital to ensure the economic survival of all – business re-education is the vehicle to reach that and the ActionCOACH franchise offers a 'sliding scale' of value streams making it possible for businesses of varying sizes to participate and work with a Business Coach," she said.
"ActionCOACH provides me with the systems, processes and content that enhances my passion for coaching and gives me the freedom to enjoy the lifestyle I aspire for, which is 'work hard, play hard'," she said. "Through this opportunity, I will also be able to work with business owners in a way that ensures a brighter future for all in this beautiful country."
Zeelie is a member of the Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Business Women's Association as well as an Advisor at the National Small Business Chamber. She also forms part of the advising committee of a nonprofit organization called Pathways – a school for children with multiple disabilities.
ActionCOACH is the world's number one Business Coaching and Executive Coaching Firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries.
