If you want to take charge of your career and life, there’s never a wrong time to do it. And, what better way to take back control over your life than becoming your own boss? Venturing into the world of entrepreneurship can be daunting, especially if you’re attempting to build a business from scratch. However, there is a simpler and less risky way to become your own boss that doesn’t involve you creating a business from the ground up. What are we talking about? We’re talking about investing in a franchise. There are plenty of franchises across a variety of industries and sectors, so you may be wondering what franchise would best suit your skills and personality. If you’ve got skills in business, marketing, management or finance, chances are you’d make a great business coach. And, while there are plenty of business coaching models out there, not all of them are created equally. In this article, we’re going to be looking at why ActionCOACH is the best franchise to choose when entering the business coaching industry.
The ActionCOACH Story
ActionCOACH is the #1 Business Coaching Franchise in the world as rated by Entrepreneur Magazine? Not only that, but it’s also the largest business coaching firm in the world. ActionCOACH has been internationally franchised since 1998 and currently has around 1,000 offices in over 70 countries around the world. ActionCOACH is also an active member of the International Franchise Association, a member of the Franchise Council of Australia and also of New Zealand.
ActionCOACH essentially emerged as an overnight success when founder, Brad Sugars, began running seminars and workshops for small to medium sized enterprises throughout Australia and New Zealand. Thanks to Brad’s incredible training and knowledge, for the first time ever, business owners had access to extremely powerful – yet simple and affordable – business processes and strategies that ultimately transformed their organisations and their lives. Currently, over 500,000 aspiring entrepreneurs have attended ActionCOACH’s seminars and more than 15,000 business owners all over the world, each and every week, learn that adding an ActionCOACH Business Coach to their business was one of the best business decisions they ever made.

ActionCOACH Franchise Vs Other Business Coaching Models
There are plenty of models under which to enter the business coaching industry available across Australia and New Zealand, but they’re not all built equally. It’s important you do your due diligence and find out everything you can about business coaching before you invest, or you may find yourself in hot water down the track. Here are just a few reasons why the ActionCOACH franchise is truly a cut above the rest.
An Amazing Hourly Rate
ActionCOACH business coaches deliver a professional service, so they are able to demand a professional fee. In terms of rates, our programs work on a monthly retainer, but when broken down, rates can be calculated to be between $275 and $550 per hour. Your high hourly rate coupled with a low overhead, no inventory and repeat clients all add up to a very profitable business model.
Earn an Income from Day One
Most start-ups take years to start turning a profit. This is because they need to focus on a range of things like building systems, designing products, figuring out their marketing, sales process, training, and more. As an ActionCOACH franchisee, you literally get to pass GO on all that and head straight to earning an income from day one.
Multiple Income Streams
ActionCOACH offers all of its franchisees the opportunity to earn an income through multiple streams. From 1-2-1 business coaching to group coaching and featured training days, you’ll be able to offer different services to make sure you’re able to accommodate all businesses, no matter their size or budget.
ActionCOACH franchisees have complete control over their work schedule. If you want to work 9 to 5, five days a week, you can. Or if you want to work at night or on weekends, you can do that too. You have the freedom and flexibility to choose your hours and times that suit you.
Comprehensive Training and Supports
Many offerings out there will train you at the start, and then leave you on your own after that. As an ActionCOACH franchisee, you’ll receive extensive and comprehensive training upfront, as well as plenty of ongoing training and support to make sure you’re always up-to-date with industry best practices
