Holistic Business Coaching: New ActionCOACH comes from a unique background

Edmonton, AB- You’ve heard of life coaches and new age coaches, but combining holistic nutrition with a love of business isn’t heard of often. But that’s exactly why the newest ActionCOACH Mel Ruttan of Edmonton wants to let people know about.

Mel is a Certified Management Accountant and Financial Planner as well as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist.  He was chosen from a select group of applicants in the first round of the 2011 ActionCOACH Draft.

“Health isn’t just about your body and mind, it’s also about nurturing your business and making sure that it also is going to grow and be healthy. There is nothing worse than working on your core emotional needs but neglecting the work environment and how it affects you. With my business expertise and compassion for health I’m excited to give businesses a new style of coaching,” says Mel, who is dedicated to giving back to a community that has supported him in his many careers.

Mel is known for his compassion and determination and knowledge in business. One of his clients said, “He has been very helpful in coaching me in three main areas of my life – his financial, health and spiritual – and his guidance has been invaluable. He has put my money where it is safe and growing, he has kept me healthy and healed my aches and pains and he has also helped me to meditate on the important things in life. I cannot imagine a future for me without his leadership and guidance”- Margaret McCallum- Investment Business.

Mel is now just finished training for the ActionCOACH franchise and is setting up business in the Edmonton Area.

Lethbridge ActionCOACH Rewards Successful Businesses with Awards Ceremony

Lethbridge, AB– Every day, in every major city across Canada, we see “For Lease” or “For Sale” signs on local businesses on every major street; with rents going up, local businesses are finding it tougher & tougher to survive.

Still, some local businesses thrive, even during the hardest times. Local business expert Greg Stonehocker knows what makes a business thrive: “Above all, a passion for excellence. You have to want to be the best, to really be the only viable option for your customers. Competition will always be fierce. What will set you apart? That’s why I gave out these awards to Alberta business owners—they are showing that anything is possible!”

At the Awards ceremony the Mastery Award was given to Russ Gallant, owner of Water Proofing Roofing Ltd: Russ used to let his business run him, instead of the other way round. Now revenue is up 200% from 2008 & his golf game has never been better. Getting off the roof and working “ON” the business turned out to be the key.

The Leverage Award was given to Gerrit & Jane Bezooyen, of Bezooyen Contracting. Greg gave them this award because Gerrit was recently appointed as the local Canadian Home Builders Association President, which has increased his already busy schedule. We put a plan in place and a system to hire a new person, allowing him to leverage his time and resources.

The Team Award was given to the Boys & Girls Club of Lethbridge: over the past 2.5 years they have consistently upgraded their systems & procedures to make their staffing 100% better. Trever Broadhead, their general director, made incredible strides.

Greg spoke to Trevor, who said “It validates all of the hard work we have been putting forth to achieve our strategic objectives. For the first time in 2 ½ years I feel like we have the best team structure in place, with the most qualified and enthusiastic team members.”

Greg went on to say: “Finally, the Focus Bat Award goes to the company that shows the most significant results and consistent effort over the past 90 days. It was a real privilege to give this to Rudy & Stella Reger, of EnergySmart Canada, who have shown incredible resolve to make things better. Among other things, they have implemented a number of Sales, KPI, Marketing Systems, have hired a General Manager, renegotiated financing and inventory levels. Business in Alberta is booming–& owners like Rudy & Stella are showing us the way!”
