Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
It’s always important to thank the members of our military for the work they do every day, but it’s especially crucial on Veterans Day. In honor of Veterans Day, The Growth Coach would like to thank the company’s veteran franchise owners and clients as well as all our veterans throughout the United States.
"We're always delighted to have veterans join our Growth Coach community. Military veterans do well in our franchise system because of their proven leadership skills, discipline, mental fortitude, and great dedication. Through military service, they have been well trained, know how to follow systems, focus on serving others, and work well with teams," said Dan Murphy, CEO and Founder of The Growth Coach.
“I’d like to personally thank our veterans for their personal sacrifices and military service,” he said.
The Growth Coach, founded in Cincinnati, sold its first franchise in 2003. However, the company’s leaders have a 20-year track record of helping clients. Today the business and sales coaching franchise serves small business owners, management teams, sales teams, and self-employed professionals in more than 140 international markets. 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.
One of The Growth Coach’s newest owners, Lisa Carr, decided to open her franchise in New Hampshire upon retiring from the military.
“Our office team offered educational opportunities through venues such as classroom and seminars. We delivered these offerings all across the United States and abroad. Working the relationships to set up and deliver these sessions successfully has provided me with insight that will be extremely beneficial to The Growth Coach of New Hampshire,” Carr said. “I’ll be able to help my clients see the broader picture – the global picture – of the struggles they’re facing and they improvements they can make moving forward.”
Another veteran, Tahera Lloyd, turned to The Growth Coach as a way to start an encore career, own a business and make a positive impact on her community of Pearland, Texas.
“When I left the military, I didn’t want to turn around and get a job working for someone else. In the military, we play hard, but we work even harder and we know business comes first. As a Growth Coach owner with my husband Phil, I know my work will make a difference and we’ll be the ones to reap the benefits,” she said.
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 Business Coaching and Consulting Franchise as well as in the magazine’s “Best of the Best” and “Top Home-Based Business” listings.
Dan Gilbert, another recent owner, helped expand the company to his territory of Gastonia, North Carolina. Also a veteran, Gilbert has found that being a Growth Coach is a great option for those with military experience.
“The accountability mindset of The Growth Coach is very familiar with what you learn in the military. It’s about stepping up and doing something – getting out of something what you put into it – and that’s perfectly suited for someone who has been in the military,” he said. “The Growth Coach is different because the coaching strategy is based in reality. There are no quick fixes. We meet the customers where they are and the success of both of us is driven by mutual hard work.”
Gilbert said veterans, especially those who recently left the service, also will find that the structure of the company includes a welcome support system reminiscent of a military base.
“At The Growth Coach, you have a strong network of people and systems intended to help you succeed. It’s certainly not the same as working or living on a base, but you can always pick up the phone and ask someone for help or for advice. The company is there for you. It’s not dog-eat-dog because it’s all about mutual success. My success as The Growth Coach of Gastonia doesn’t negatively affect another owner in another territory and that creates a great community among owners,” he said.
