ActionCoach Listed as #1 Pennsylvania Coaching Company

Central Pennsylvania Business Journal Cites Management and Coaching Consulting Company as Top in Its Class

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2007) - ActionCoach, the business coaching and training company founded in 1993 by entrepreneur and author Brad Sugars, today announced that it has been named first on the list of management and coaching consulting companies by the Central Pennsylvania Business Journal.

"We're very proud that we have been recognized in this way," said Don Schin, Master Franchisee for ActionCoach in Pennsylvania. "It's come as a result of some very hard work, effort and great teamwork from a group of talented individuals that have allowed us to deliver far more than many firms in the region."

Schin is the longest-tenured ActionCoach franchisee in the US. As Master Franchisee for the state of Pennsylvania, he has been named the overall national Master Franchisee in the company for two of the last three years, and his Pennsylvania territory in particular has been named the national "Territory of the Year" overall for two of the last three years. Criteria used to name the award-winners include franchisee income levels and growth.

Unlike most traditional consulting firms, the ActionCoach process is structured to provide business owners with both short-term assistance and long-term training through an affordable mentoring approach. The company has more than 800 franchised business coaches in 22 countries. Entrepreneur Magazine has also rated ActionCoach as one of the "Top 20 Home-Based Franchise Businesses."

Resources provided by ActionCoach include a number of books, publications and reference materials, as well as events and opportunities to gain advice from fellow business owners.
