Simply Spectacular...

"For ActionCOACH to give this resource free to teenagers, is simply spectacular. The amount of knowledge in the YESS Business Basics may not even be found in some paid courses. It has taught me some things and expanded on others."

Becoming an Entrepreneur...

"Today, I am thinking and working towards becoming an Entrepreneur because of the knowledge acquired here, and I am able to see that I should invest my money...10% of all cash received should be invested, and investment is now one of my hobbies. I learned also what a Vision Board is and how to create one.  I learned how to create a Business Plan and how to Pitch...my biggest take away."

This pro bono coaching program for philanthropic leadership was launched in 2009 by ActionCOACH Foundation and since integrated into the Foundation. Hundreds of philanthropies worldwide have increased their bottom lines and community impact since then.

Andy O'Brien Coaches Community Ministries to Expand...

"I immediately jumped on it (when Andy O'Brien offered free coaching during Covid) because nobody was prepared to navigate what this was going to look like....Andy (O'Brien) and I worked through how to change the message…how to make it more effective. We had to completely change our operation. Even with this, we raised more money from March until June than we had raised the entire year before.

The second thing was we needed to hire people. Andy worked with us on strategies to hire people to complete our team; it’s been a fantastic team.

Third thing is helping us on the growth....We were able to distribute 1 million pounds of food out of a 900-square-foot food pantry...."

-- Tiesa Hollaway, Executive Director, Hill Country Community Ministries on working with Andy O'Brien of ActionCOACH Wilco in Round Rock, TX

Center for Creative Economy Grows 50% in One Year Working with ActionCOACH, Mary Ann Hauser...

"I know my numbers. I know where I am at every moment thanks to Mary Ann Hauser. Thanks to ActionCOACH. Once you know the numbers, that empowers you to go after the sponsors, the clients or the revenue that you need....My mindset has changed....

I have a wonderful staff now thanks to Mary Ann's advice....We have job descriptions, and we have a culture. Because of the way we hire now, we understand the type of person that we need....Getting the right staff has been a big help....

Business has grown 50% from last year to this year."

-- Margaret Collins, Founder, Center for Creative Economy on working with TeamHauser ActionCOACH and Master Coach, Mary Ann Hauser in Winston-Salem, N.C.
