Australia's MasterChef, Julie Goodwin, was Coached by ActionCOACH Marcus Kroek
Julie Goodwin was able to go on Channel 10's cooking challenge reality show due in part to Marcus Kroek's business coaching.
SYDNEY, Aug. 13 // PRNewswire // -- There's no doubt that Julie Goodwin is one of Australia's greatest cooks. She recently won MasterChef Australia, Channel 10's hit actuality show.
Goodwin, 38, also runs an IT company with her husband, Michael. The Goodwins, who live in New South Wales, hired ActionCOACH Business Coach Marcus Kroek to help their business acquire more success.
Kroek coached the Goodwins to achieve their utmost potential. Both Michael and Julie wrote testimonials on Kroek's ActionCOACH website.
"Before we began coaching, my wife and I had created a healthy and profitable business. However, we had been working to take it to the next level, a business that required our input less and was more profitable," Michael wrote.
They attended an ActionCOACH seminar given by Kroek and liked his ideas and systems that could lead them to a profitable business that could run without them, essentially.
"With Marcus' guidance we have found the right numbers in the business to focus on," Michael wrote on Kroek's website. "This focus has led to a quadrupling of profit in the first 6 months of coaching. He has clarified the importance of procedures and assisted with the production of a procedure manual. He has helped us with the recruitment process that saw our team grow by 25 percent. These are just a few of the things we have achieved and are continuing to achieve with his guidance.
"'Coach' does not really do justice to what Marcus gives us. He is very generous with his time and his knowledge, constantly offering support above and beyond his job description. It is great to have him sharing our dream trip, guiding us in running our business, pushing us to be our best."
Julie wrote on Kroek's site: "Thank you for your time Marcus - I am getting so much from your knowledge and insight at all the events I attend with you."
Julie said she was able to audition and be on the MasterChef Australia show, the highest ranking TV show on Channel 10, due in part to Kroek's help systemizing their business and helping them establish clear goals.
Now that she's won the show, she's dedicating the win to her family - her husband and three sons, 13-year-old Joe, 12-year-old Tom and 10-year-old Paddy - and hopes to develop a cooking career.
Kroek has been very successful as an ActionCOACH, and has won numerous awards, including the ActionMAN award at ActionCOACH's 2007 Asia Pacific conference, and Firm of the Year and Best Client Results awards at the 2008 Asia Pacific conference.
