Profit Coach vs ActionCoach

Once you have read through the Profit Coach System, you can then compare it to the ActionCoach franchise license and find the one that best suits your needs.

ActionCoach describes their franchising license as a good fit for someone who wants to have the ability to work from home or their office. It allows one coach to work per license with full access to all of the intellectual property as well as the admin team; marketing and selling. 

Who is the ActionCoach Franchise License aimed at?

ActionCoach calls the course they offer ActionPractice. It is aimed at business people who have an investment mindset and the self-discipline to focus on productive activity. If you have owned a business or managed a team, or if you have a sales background it would be beneficial. Applicants will need to have a good understanding of the principles of business, an entrepreneurial spirit, and motivation. To ascertain areas where an applicant will need the most support, the Franchise will use the DISC behavior assessment tool. Afterward, they will discuss the results with the applicant. 

How to apply to the ActionCoach Franchise License

To apply you need to complete the Applicant Background Information Statement and arrange an interview with the Master Licensee. You will then have the opportunity to share any questions you may have. If you are successful at the interview, a Discovery Day meeting will be arranged. At the end of the Discovery Day meeting, if you are a good fit, you receive all the pre-training materials in return for a $1000 refundable deposit. You will also go through the franchise agreement with a Franchise Recruiter. If ActionCoach believes that you have a great chance of success, and you want to pursue the opportunity, ActionCoach will complete your franchise paperwork, and award your ActionCOACH license.
