  • Let me introduce myself, I am Janna Hoiberg a Business and Executive Coach. I has been coaching business, executives, customers and employees for many years and with ActionCOACH since 2008. Every athlete achieves more through coaching. Every business achieves more through coaching.
  • What is the true value of a business coach? A good coach will challenge you, they will push you to the next level that you didn’t think was possible. A good coach will help you get out of your comfort zone. They will help you see a different picture than what is directly in front of you. With my clients, they have an idea where they want to take their business and they want the best route to get there. That routing helps them achieve more revenue and profits
  • Have you ever had someone point out something to you that made a huge difference in your life? Do you have people around you that will listen – truly listen and not make judgments in the process. My greatest joy is listening to clients and they work through opportunities or challenges. They mere art of having a mentor listen provides the true clarity of the situation they are facing.
  • Do you have a written plan for where your business will be in 5 years, 3 years, 90 days. This isn’t a pie in the sky plan, but a detailed working document that lives and breathes and provides the guidance and clarity required to move your business forward. Janna has experience in marketing, sales, training. She will be your trusted advisor. Running a business, being a CEO is usually a lonely place to be. Having that trusted advisor that walks alongside you, your team, your business will make the difference between success and tremendous success.
  • Yes, a coach is a good thing, so why me as your coach? What makes me different is 25 years of running businesses. I have been the Sales Manager, the CFO, Operations Manager, General Manager, Director of Marketing. I know what it is like to grow business. Also, I get results with my clients. The running joke with clients is that I use a baseball bat during coaching. That isn’t true, however I do hold them accountable. They need to get results, they need to do things they have never done before, in ways they have never gone. You can’t sit back and wait for customers to walk through your door to build the business that YOU want.
  • The real reason to use me as your coach is for results. There are many coaches. What makes me different is that I have walked in the shoes of a business owner. I have made the hard decisions, been close to closing more than one business and grown others quickly. Results are the only reason to evaluate a coach.
  • Do you want to increase your revenue and your profits, then give me a call. These results are through hard work from clients. They are a result of being open, willing to change and not willing to accept status quo.
  • Is your marketing like taking a bowl of spaghetti noodles and throwing them against a wall? Most marketing plans are just that. People don’t test and measure, they have no idea what works and what doesn’t and then wonder why profits aren’t what they want. A targeted marketing plan with the sales tools necessary to CLOSE business will get you results.
  • So many business owners detest hiring. They feel like going to Vegas would be a better experience with better results. Change your mindset and change your hiring practices will result in a better team. Most issues for your team start with YOU. Are you ready to build a team that is an extension of everything you do right and allow them to improve on those practices. What would life be like if you didn’t need to work the hours you work?
  • Can you manage time? Ok, trick question – NO you can’t, you can’t stop the clock from ticking. You can manage yourself. Most people I encounter are REALLY, REALLY busy. Are they working on the right things that will get the results needed?
  • So often people have blame, excuses and denial as to why things aren’t being accomplished, why revenue isn’t growing, why profits are in the toilet. The choice is yours – Results never need an explanation, reasons do. What is your choice?
  • As I look as self management, for many there is always another day, they believe they don’t have time to start coaching. Your competition is getting an advantage – they are probably looking at a coach. How many teams win games, tournaments or championships without a coach? Zero – so why are you trying to run your business without one?
