Fort Mill, SC (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
Diane Wagner understands the importance – and the challenge – of having a balance between work and life. She’s been there.
“I spent 20 years in corporate America and left to start my own wholesale insurance operation in 2001. We achieved tremendous success helping others grow their businesses, but I had no balance in my personal life. I needed a change in direction.”
For Wagner, that direction meant opening her own Growth Coach franchise. The Growth Coach, the #1 business and sales coaching franchise in the country according to Entrepreneur Magazine, is dedicated to helping business leaders and sales professionals find success at work and balance in life.
Wagner’s new business will serve Fort Mill, Rock Hill and Columbia in South Carolina. In addition to working with sales professionals, management teams, business leaders and more, Wagner is especially looking forward to helping small business owners.
“I have worked with hundreds of business owners and sales professionals in my career. Although every one of us has a vision for our business, the execution and accountability is where we often get hung up. It’s critical to set time aside to work on the business. We need to ask ourselves, ‘Is what I’m doing in this moment bringing me closer to my vision or is it a distraction?’ When we take the time to create a solid plan, and have someone hold us accountable to execute the plan, we can achieve tremendous success and the life balance we all aspire to. It’s really that simple,” she said.
In addition to the proven system of The Growth Coach, Wagner says it’s her personality and passion that will set her apart from other business coaching or consulting services in the area.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. You have to take the time to focus on making positive changes for greater success,” Wagner added.
One of the leaders Wagner has worked with in the past, GMM Insurance President Marilyn Gray, is excited to recommend her to other business owners and managers in the community.
“Diane has been a terrific help to GMM Insurance, coaching us through management issues that we have had in our insurance business. She has helped my partner and me to look objectively at issues and to make decisions that helped us to grow in the confusing market of the independent agency where so many companies are merging and changing,” she said. “We truly can recommend her to any business that wants to sit back and look at the business and make decisions to help you grow.”
The Growth Coach was founded in 2003, but the company’s leaders have a 20 year track record of successful business coaching. Today the franchise is in over 140 markets in North America and abroad, 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. While most of the coaching is delivered through affordable group workshops, they also provide one-to-one coaching, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and special projects coaching.
Ben Taylor, Wagner’s former business partner and CEO of AssureAlliance and AssureSouth, is looking forward to the impact Wagner will make with her new business.
“Diane and I partnered in 2001 and, through her dedication, determination and strategic execution, AssureAlliance rose to become the #1 agency network countrywide,” he said. “For 12 years Diane helped over 100 private companies increase their revenue and boost profitability. She helped each business partner master the tools and strategies to compete with larger, more experienced competitors. Diane's energy and passion for helping others achieve their goals are both genuine and infectious.”
