Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) November 26, 2013 - At a time when consumers across the country are encouraged to shop small retail businesses and eat at local, independent restaurants, The Growth Coach Franchise is busy making sure those small businesses are prepared not only for the holiday season but the next 12 months as well. After all, business success is a year-round job.
"Small business owners have always been my heroes and the work that they do every day is vital to our country and our respective communities. They are the economic and employment engine of this country and we are truly a small business nation," said Dan Murphy, CEO & Founder of The Growth Coach.
Dan continued, "The holidays can be a busy, crazy and profitable time for many small business owners, but it’s important for them to think about and plan out next year as well. They need to be strategic, not just reactive. For greater success, they need to be able to execute on their short-term plans as well as craft their long-term plans. It’s our year-round coaching and accountability process that helps these retailers and service providers, and all industry sectors for that matter, successfully achieve the optimal balance between tactical execution and strategic planning."
As business owners start preparing for 2014, The Growth Coach is offering free downloads of their highly popular e-book, Becoming a Strategic Business Owner. The business coaching franchise is also letting business leaders know they can locate a certified Growth Coach in their community and receive a free coaching session to better prepare them for a prosperous 2014 at http://www.TheGrowthCoach.com. That’s The Growth Coach commitment to small businesses.
The Growth Coach, which started as a small business in Cincinnati in 2003, is now a significant business and sales coaching franchise in more than 140 markets that serves thousands of small business owners/leaders, managers, self-employed professionals, and sales people each year. In fact, The Growth Coach was named as Entrepreneur Magazine’s #1 Business Coaching Franchisefor 2013 and has since been included in the same publication’s "Franchise 500," "Best of the Best" and "Top Home-Based Business" listings. The Growth Coach was also listed in the latest Bond’s Top 100 Franchises.
The goal of The Growth Coach’s services is to help business leaders find success in business and balance in life.
Glenn Smith, the owner of The Growth Coach in Houston, said his small business clients typically face three main challenges: marketing, human resources and cash flow. As such, they need greater clarity, confidence and capabilities to manage these vital areas – especially as they serve the influx of customers at the holidays and work to prepare for a prosperous 2014.
"Most small business owners get into business because they have a trade or technical skill – something they have a passion for – that they want to share with the community, but they need a little help marketing themselves, putting systems in place, and handling the other aspects of the business," Smith said. "Through our proven coaching process, we can help small business owners successfully navigate all the key challenges of running a business. They don’t have to do it alone."
"Small business owners are special because they don’t just own their businesses – the businesses are their lives. They are mentally and emotionally invested and that’s a blessing, challenge and a curse. Working with a Growth Coach, and our proven year-round coaching and accountability process, clients can make a real difference in their lives and businesses," Smith added.
While most of The Growth Coach’s services are delivered through affordable group coaching workshops, coaches also provide one-to-one coaching, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and coaching for special projects. Growth Coaches also can help CPAs and human resources professionals to earn their continuing education requirements with National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, Society for Human Resource Professionals and HRCI certified workshops.
"More than 97 percent of all businesses have less than $5 million in revenue and fewer than 100 employees – and we are thrilled to serve and help several thousand of these small businesses each and every year," said Dan Murphy, Growth Coach CEO & Founder. "I love working with these owners and entrepreneurs as they are passionate and true creators: creating jobs, innovations and products and services that help make a difference in the lives of millions."
