Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 08, 2014 - The Growth Coach, an international business and sales coaching franchise system, has a big 2014 planned, especially when it comes to additional South American expansion. As part of the franchise’s four-year international expansion plan, The Growth Coach - recognized by "Entrepreneur Magazine" as the #1 ranked business and sales coaching franchise in 2013 – has already started working diligently to identify and cultivate Master Franchise Candidates in six targeted South American countries: Peru, Columbia, Chile, Paraguay, Argentina and Bolivia.
"We’re focusing on these additional countries in South America for expansion because of our tremendous impact and success in Ecuador and the passion of the middle-class, small business owners in this region of the world. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in South America and these owners are open to and seeking our unique business coaching solutions," Growth Coach Chief Operating Officer Nathan Owens said.
He added, "Business owners in South America are becoming more committed and serious about growing their businesses and making them more successful and viable to pass onto the next generation. Much like The Growth Coach Franchise, these business owners want to make a real difference in the communities in which they operate and help advance the well-being of their employees and citizens. That caring culture and ‘for the greater good’ mindset is a perfect match for The Growth Coach and our service mission."
The Growth Coach’s efforts in South America began last fall when Growth Coach COO Nathan Owens joined Growth Coach Master Franchise Owner Santiago Garcia in Ecuador to meet with existing and potential franchise owners, existing clients, and influential government and business leaders to discuss how The Growth Coach’s systems and coaching services can positively impact businesses, economies, and citizens throughout South America. The response was overwhelmingly positive and several Master Franchise candidates surfaced immediately, while more are being identified now.
"Growth Coach U.S.A. is making a huge investment into supporting small business and middle-class growth and development around the world. We already began that process in Ecuador because we recruited and secured a proven leader and man of exceptional character, Santiago Garcia. We all knew Ecuador was well positioned to experience significant business growth and success – and we’re already seeing that – so now we’re aiming to expand into other South American countries," Owens said. "But it all starts with us finding established, passionate and high-energy leaders with great integrity to be our Master Franchise Owners to take our Growth Coach brand, business model and proven systems into their country."
The Growth Coach is the world’s largest provider of group workshops and the only franchise dedicated to helping business leaders find success in business and balance in life. The company is currently in about 140 markets with plans to expand into at least 7 countries and 369 territories over the next four years.
"While anyone can benefit from business and sales coaching, most of our clients are small business owners, management/sales teams, entrepreneurs and self-employed professionals. Our Strategic Mindset coaching process is applicable to business leaders all over the world. By expanding in South America, we’ll be able to bring our proven services to thousands of additional clients and strengthen countless additional communities," said Dan Murphy, Growth Coach Founder and CEO.
While most of The Growth Coach’s services are delivered through affordable group workshops, coaches also provide one-to-one coaching, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and coaching for special projects. In the United States, 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.
The Growth Coach was recently included in the Bond’s Top 100 Franchises and has been recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s "Franchise 500" as the #1 ranked Business Coaching and Consulting Franchise in 2013 as well as in the magazine’s "Best of the Best" and "Top Home-Based Business" listings.
"Entrepreneurs and small business owners are expanding rapidly around the globe and they need business coaching and entrepreneurial education to reach optimal success. Our expansion plans are all part of fulfilling our mission to significantly transform lives and businesses around the world one community at a time by helping owners and leaders find success in business and balance in life," Owens said.
