ActionCOACH is the brand that started it all, pioneering the business coaching industry 28 years ago. As the world's largest and most successful business coaching company we continue to innovate and lead the way. What’s it worth to be a part of the #1 brand in the industry?

  • Start Earning Day One - Most new businesses take many months or even years to design and prove out their products, services, marketing, sales, websites, training, IT, systems, IP, team, and more. All of these components have been developed in our franchise so you can start making money on DAY ONE!

  • Fantastic ROI – Your ActionCOACH Firm delivers professional services that demand industry-leading professional fees.

Enjoy this AND low overhead, no inventory, no cost of goods sold, repeat clients, huge demand, and VERY low competition. Your business could become self-funding within a matter of months. Our Item 19, found in our Franchise Disclosure Document, is very impressive. Most business services franchises don’t have an Item 19.

  • Scalability – Each Firm Territory is designed to scale to multiple certified coaches who are employees of your Firm.
