Thriving Business Coaching Firm Celebrates Team Member’s Year of Accomplishments

{ST.PETERSBURG, FLORIDA} – AUGUST 25, 2021 – ActionCOACH Tampa Bay, the leader in business coaching for the area’s business owners, announced today the record accomplishments of their newest team member, Tony Tona.

One of Tona’s first one-on-one clients, a local home health business, earned the Fast Results award and has now recorded a 300% growth in revenue year over year after less than a full year of coaching. Tona has also successfully led the launch of a group coaching program called BizOwnerCLUB, which delivers the critical education, accountability, and community support needed by business owners in the first phase of their business journey.

“Business owners are well-educated when it comes to their trade and profession,” says cofounder Barb Kyes. “But they need help when it comes to being an owner and not the operator and technician they were when they started their business. Tona’s extensive business growth experience made him a fast fit for business coaching.”

For over 14 years, ActionCOACH Tampa Bay has been helping area business owners reach new levels of success. They’ve also helped over 25 owners in the last six years achieve outstanding results and freedom as they exit their businesses successfully.

When a business owner is ready to take their business to market, 90% of businesses do not sell, according to the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA). In contrast, “ActionCOACH Tampa Bay has had a 100% success rate of clients who have taken their business to the marketplace for sale,” says Tona. “That’s the kind of success I’m proud to be a part of and grow with.”

ActionCOACH Tampa Bay ranks second in the United States and fifth in the world among the all firms in the franchise. The first employee coach they hired two years ago, Scott Bedell, is now ranked fourth in the United States and seventh in the world. The firm of five coaches has a vision of growing by another three coaches by 2023 to fill all the private offices of their new expanded office location in St. Petersburg, FL.

ActionCOACH was named the #1 Business Coaching Franchise by in its 2020 Franchise 500 edition.
