Teamwork + Abundance = Success
September 1st, 2015
ActionCOACH Franchise Partner since 2011, Lucas Vigilante, shared, "My first two years in ActionCOACH was a bit like climbing a mountain and there were days when I didn't feel like climbing, but I made myself."
A great analogy. You see, whilst ActionCOACH is a beautiful business for repeat business and referrals, whenever someone recommends you, their name and reputation is on the line. So, even though ActionCOACH has achieved spectacular client results across the UK, until you get those results with your own ActionCOACH clients, it's unlikely other people will have the confidence to recommend you.
That, of course, means that you're more reliant on direct marketing in your first year or two and because your prospective clients don't know how powerful the ActionCOACH services are, you inevitably will need to deal with many more "no" responses than "yes" responses. You've also got to deal with the frustration of it taking about 10 dials to reach a business owner that you don't already know on average, so the process to get a client takes a lot of time and effort. On top of all of that, nearly everything you do in year 1 is brand new, so you need to invest more time and effort to master what you're doing. In summary, a challenge that is not for the faint-hearted.
However, there is great news, along the way you can count on a Toolbox of already proven in the UK processes, strategies and tactics; and, best of all, a team of people who all want you to succeed and will give you their time to help you do so. Lucas, like hundreds of ActionCOACH franchise partners around the world was on the receiving end of that support and, as this video demonstrates, it made him want to go out of his way to add even more to ActionCOACH's award-winning support structure:
By the way, there is a happy ending to this story too. Lucas describes the view from the top of the mountain as "spectacular" because he has created the view that he wanted to create - specifically, a £200k a year income on a working week of just two and a half days on his doorstep - so he has even more time for his wife and two young daughters. All this with zero selling and marketing because his clients give him repeat business and referrals - some of which he passes onto another ActionCOACH franchise partner because he doesn't want any more clients! Why do Lucas's clients give him so much repeat business and referrals? Simple. Lucas's clients are by far the biggest winners - over the last three years they have received over 40 industry and professional accolades with all of the lifestyle benefits for themselves and their families which go with their mind-blowing business growth and success.
