San Diego resident and business coach George Maabadi is pleased to announce that he’s published a book he hopes will help other business owners build stronger companies.

“Put Your Business on Autopilot: Smart Strategies to Optimize Your Business,” which was released earlier this year, is a reference guide to building your business while creating balance in your life. Maabadi said the purpose of the book is to help other business owners become more successful while finding ways to work “on” their business instead of “in” their business. He said it all starts by facing reality, admitting to the problems and adopting a mindset of optimization. As a business owner, he recommends that other business owners ask themselves a few questions including: When was the last time they had a work-free, guilt free vacation? If they got sick tomorrow, would the business survive for a week, a month or longer? If the business were for sale today in its current condition, would the current owner be a willing buyer?

Maabadi owns The Growth Coach San Diego. The Growth Coach, an international franchise founded in Cincinnati in 1993 that started franchising in 2003, is the world’s leader in group coaching workshops and the only franchise dedicated to helping business leaders find both success in business and balance in life. Growth Coaches around the world serve small business owners, executives and professionals.

“I have a true passion for coaching and I find my personal inspiration in helping other business owners and business leaders get their lives back while having success with their companies. Helping someone meet their personal and professional goals is something I value and, although I’m tough on my clients when it comes to accountability, I know the struggles – even something as simple as clocking out on the weekends – can be extremely rough,” Maabadi said.

When it comes to getting sucked into work, Maabadi understands what business owners and business leaders are going through. Maabadi, an Egyptian Coptic Christian, immigrated to the US as a young college student. He spent more than 30 years in sales, marketing, coaching and mentoring for Fortune 500 companies including IBM, Novell and SCO. He also owned a software development company, an Internet-based company and a construction company. Maabadi moved to San Diego in 2011 and opened his Growth Coach business the following year.

“Early on, I was eager to work extra hours to help the business grow, but that’s a never-ending cycle. You have to have the right employees in place and you have to be willing to let go. It all starts with creating strong business systems that will allow you to put your business on autopilot,” Maabadi said.

“If you own a business that has been around for three years or more, has three employees or more and has more than $300,000 in annual revenue, reading this book is the perfect way to learn how to systematize your business and get more out of the time and money you’re putting into it. I’m also hoping that people who read this book and find it useful will contact me or their local Growth Coach to see how we can expand on what they’ve already learned,” he added.

“Put Your Business on Autopilot: Smart Strategies to Optimize Your Business” is the first book published through The Growth Coach’s book publishing program, which was rolled out late last year. The program was created to help coaches around the world share their valuable knowledge while giving the business community more widespread access to beneficial coaching expertise, even if they’re not able to access in-person or virtual coaching. Content from The Growth Coach’s CEO and Founder Dan Murphy, who has more than 20 years as a business coach, is also included in “Put Your Business on Autopilot: Smart Strategies to Optimize Your Business.”

“By working with our coaches, small business owners and business leaders around the world get the help they need to find success and balance while rediscovering why they are in business and what they’re truly passionate about. By giving coaches like George the opportunity to publish books through our publishing program, even those business people who aren’t quite ready to work with a Growth Coach can find the inspiration they need to run their businesses efficiently and effectively,” Growth Coach President Nathan Owens said.

The Growth Coach was recently recognized in Bond’s “Top 100 Franchises.” The brand also has been recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500” and “Best of the Best,” in USA Today as one of the “Top 50 Franchises for Veterans” and “50 Top Franchises for Minorities” and has been featured on FOX, CBS and NBC.
