Action Woman  

One of the biggest growth areas in franchising worldwide has been the proliferation of management and business consultancy services. One of the top franchises operating in this lucrative area is ActionCoach, which was set up by Australian business guru Brad Sugars. ActionCoach now has over 1,000 consultants or "coaches" around the world.

With background in management consultancy, the Stillorgan, Co Dublin-based Jane Hogan looked around before she chose ActionCoach. Jane joined the firm as a franchisee in 2005 following 10 years with British Airways and 5 years as a management monsultant with Fujitsu.

"I have 2 young children and felt that the best way for me to combine a rewarding career with family life was to run my own business. I had a diploma in Life & Business Coaching and knew that I wanted to coach. I love coaching because it empowers people. My job as a coach is to help people focus on their goals, build a plan to achieve them, and then hold them accountable to doing the work to get the results." 

"As business coach, I coach the owners of medium sized businesses across a wide range of sectors. I feel passionately that anyone who has the courage and commitment to run their own business should be rewarded with the lifestyle they desire," she says.

Being a management coach is no plain sailing as success is one of several yardsticks used by client firms in determining the whether or not they will use a coach's services again." My goal when working with my clients is to enable them to increase their profits, reduce the number of hours they work and build a committed and motivated team - helping them build a profitable enterprise that works without them," she says. 

Jane would have no problem in recommending franchising and ActionCoach to other people seeking to spread their entrepreneurial wings. "I chose a franchise because I was prepared to invest in myself and my business to get access to world class training, tools and culture. It's really important to me that my clients get fantastic value out of their investment in coaching, so I chose ActionCoach for its wealth of intellectual property and systems. These enable me to help my clients consistently and measurably grow their businesses and achieve the results they seek."
