‘It’s been great working with Andrew; he has helped put my mind at ease with how to grow my business. I was very apprehensive at the start I couldn’t see how he could pay his own way in my business after all he hadn’t done any work similar to what we do, in 3 short months we are well on our way to becoming a easy to run and successful business, all thanks to the support and knowledge of Andrew, what you learn is so simple to grasp yet so very powerful, so if you’re thinking about him coaching you, you should have called yesterday!! …no regrets here.’                                                                    

Nick Kelly, Invercargill

“ActionCOACH will help you concentrate on what is important in your business immediately and in the future they will help you achieve your goals.  This is the only way to learn business techniques.”

 Andrew Johnston has been working with my business for over 3 years now as a mentor, coach and friend. It is very easy for any business to get ‘stuck’ in the way of doing things, so it is refreshing (and profitable) to have had new ideas brought into the business by Andrew. These ideas are always seen through to their natural conclusion. (This is often not the case without a coach as new ideas often get put on the back burner). It is also great to have an independent person to ‘bounce’ our own ideas off. I am really optimistic that at the end of this process my business will be a much more efficient organisation ready to face all the challenges of operating in the current business environment. In conclusion let me say that I really enjoy my weekly visits from Andrew, and would recommend his services to any business of any size or age.

My wife and I have put into practice just a few of Andrew’s Action ideas and they have made profitable results and they were only the tip of the iceberg.  Using one of the Actions ideas on a promotion, it was so successful we had to finish it early by one month as we had run out of stock.

 Very useful tools that every business needs, much more useful than an accountant.

Keith Pirie, Wyndham

 Massive Action Days are extremely worthwhile and fun as well.

John Stewart, Wyndham

 Andrew has a proven common sense and simple streetwise approach to business.  A lot of it is stuff we know but choose to shelf because other things seem more important, when, in actual fact they are not.
