The Growth Coach of Chattanooga announced that the company has been named Entrepreneur Magazine’s top Business Coaching and Consulting franchise for 2013.

Entrepreneur Magazine released the 2013 “Top 500 Franchise” list, ranking The Growth Coach franchise system as the number one Business Coaching and Consulting company nationwide as well as in their top 250 franchises overall. This is the eighth straight year The Growth Coach, as well as their 140-plus franchise owners, has been ranked in the Franchise 500.

“The ranked franchises are the ones whose business models are working best – and are a major force contributing to the franchise upswing. Their ability to successfully satisfy customers, continually add units, create jobs and grow overall keeps them ahead of the rest and worthy of distinction,” said Amy Cosper, president and editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur.

Rick Brines launched The Growth Coach in Chattanooga in 2011. As a business coach, Mr. Brines works with business owners, management teams, sales teams, self-employed professionals, franchise owners, and executives in all types of industries to help them not only drive greater success, but also find better balance in their business and personal life using The Growth Coach Strategic Mindset Process.

“As a certified Growth Coach, I help my many small business clients take an honest look at where their business is now and where they want it to be. I then help them close that performance gap with action plans, mindset adjustments, and on-going accountability.  Growing a business and enjoying the journey is challenging, but business owners don’t have to do it alone. Affordable group and individual coaching can make a big difference. In fact, our coaching process is so effective that it comes with a unique money-back guarantee,” Mr. Brines said.

“The rankings for the Franchise 500 are determined by a number of objective and quantifiable factors including financial strength, stability, growth rate, start-up/operating costs, and size of the system,“ said Dan Murphy, CEO and founder of The Growth Coach. “It’s gratifying to have an independent, objective and trusted third-party like Entrepreneur Magazine validate the success of our business model, our franchise owners, and the positive impact we are having on tens of thousands of small business clients and their teams around North America.”

“I’ve been coaching for over 20 years," Mr. Murphy said. "The need for affordable business and sales coaching services is greater now than ever. Small business owners and their management and sales teams need some additional focus, coaching and accountability to help them regain their sales growth, profits, and overall confidence and effectiveness. The deep recession and slow recovery have humbled entrepreneurs and made them more receptive to seek objective help and additional guidance. The wise ones seek new perspectives, new mindsets and new strategies to achieve greater levels of success and distance themselves from their competitors.  Our #1 Business Coaching Ranking helps position us well to serve this growing demand and I’m thrilled that Rick Brines is a growth coach making such a positive difference in Chattanooga.”
