Three Business Leaders Come Together to Open The Growth Coach of Salt Lake City

Greg Kesten, Keith Weaver and Jason Kirkham are looking forward to bringing powerful business and sales coaching to Salt Lake City and the surrounding communities through their recently launched Growth Coach franchise.

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 08, 2013 - With 65 years of combined business experience, Greg Kesten, Keith Weaver and Jason Kirkham are looking forward to bringing powerful business and sales coaching to Salt Lake City and the surrounding communities through their recently launched Growth Coach franchise.

The Growth Coach is the only business and sales coaching company focused on helping business leaders succeed while finding the all-important balance between work and life.

"We bring experience and passion to this business. Coaching is relatively new to the business world and many business owners don’t know they need coaching. They know the technical side of their business, but we’re there to help them learn how to be a better business owner," Kirkham said. "It’s hard for a small business to be successful without having someone to coach you through the process."

"Just like athletes have coaches to help them get better in their sport, we are here to help business owners that want to make changes in their business and their personal lives. We are here to keep them accountable," he said.

The opening of the business was serendipitous. Kesten, a long-time financial coach, was looking to open his own Growth Coach franchise, but was looking for solid partners. When he was introduced to Weaver, another potential Growth Coach owner with experience as an attorney and business leader, the two decided they wanted to move forward on opening a franchise together. Kirkham bought a Growth Coach franchise in Idaho in 2004 and wanted to relocate to Utah. He has worked with Kesten for a number of years and is excited to join the business in Utah as an associate. Together the three each bring a different skill set and perspective to helping the Salt Lake City business community thrive through The Growth Coach.

"The community should expect a professional, experienced, client-oriented coaching program with us and The Growth Coach. We have all the education and community connections we need to help many people add to the quality of life here in our area," Kesten said. "We know what needs to be done to have our clients take their business and life to the next level."

The Growth Coach, founded in Cincinnati, sold its first franchise in 2003, and is dedicated to helping business owners, entrepreneurs, company leaders, management teams and sales professionals. While most of the coaching is delivered through affordable group workshops, they also provide one-to-one coaching, and remote coaching delivered via phone and web.

The company was recently included in the Bond’s Top 100 Franchises and has been recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s "Franchise 500," "Best of the Best" and "Top Home-Based Business" listings.

"Having been a small business owner, I have felt the stress, anxiety, struggles and doubts of running a business. I have had the big goals and visions only to get beaten down by the basics of running the business. I feel for all those business owners who are facing those struggles," Weaver said. "Our team has a comprehensive approach that combines the proven strategies and concepts of the Growth Coach with decades of business, professional and coaching experience as well as the passion to help others excel."

The Growth Coach of Salt Lake City serves the Wasatch front. For additional information about how they can help your business, call (801)990-5080, email j.kirkham(at)thegrowthcoach(dot)com or visit
