I offer my most sincere and full-throated endorsement of Mr. Kory Dogs, ActionCOACH, for his work with me as a partner in my endeavor to make my business activities more focused in pursuit of the success of FLYING COLORS GLASS, LLC.
Kory has mentored and encouraged me in the very specific disciplines I needed to identify and/or re-shape goal strategy formation. He has provided specific insights into long- and short-term financial planning germane to my specific business. Through his patient and persistent presence in personally meeting with me and learning about my business and my skill set, he has encouraged me to establish personal and professional goals that I have found of great utility as I work to make my business more successful in the niche marketplace in which I operate.
His most significant asset seems to be his determination to make my success as the premiere stained glass artisan in the world of aviation art the most important of his personal professional goals. My success is his success, and for that commitment I am most grateful.
I heartily recommend Mr. Kory Dogs to any who seek to utilize his knowledge and expertise as a professional business coach and mentor. Kory has become a friend and confidant during our time together – I cannot think of a better person to work with in the unique environment of business planning and discipline development.
Gary Elshoff, Owner/Artist – Flying Colors Glass, LLC
Kory has been a tremendous resource for me and my businesses. He is a constant source of support, ideas and accountability. Kory repeatedly gives me needed perspective (seeing the forest through the trees) and often points out things that I may have otherwise overlooked. It is invaluable having an independent and non-biased advisor that focuses on me, my problems, my opportunities and my goals and I highly recommend Kory. My business wouldn’t be where it is today without Kory’s help.
Robert Tye, President – London Town Marketing
I met Kory Dogs two years ago when I went to my local chamber meeting. During that time my business was struggling in all areas. I was very stressed out and did not have a focus on which direction my company was going. I had been in business for six years but had no real focus. I hired Kory to help me pull my business out of a spiral of chaos and he immediately started helping me put together a strategy and a plan to turn things around.
He not only helped me turn things around, but gave me business tools that any business could use for the future. He also helped open my eyes to a world of possibilities for my business. In my first year working with Kory my business grew by 30% percent. He taught me how to set goals and how to turn them into reality and for that I will always be grateful. Kory gave me more than just good advice – he helped me develop a plan and vision for the future of my company. You could say he gave me the wings to push to the sky. Working with Kory was the best decision I could have ever made.
If you are thinking of going into business, or are already in business, do not wait any longer to use Kory’s services. It will be the best investment you will ever make for your company and the first step towards being a successful entrepreneur.
William Bunton – Creative Touch Landscape Services LLC
Kory has been instrumental in getting us to formulate a clear vision for our company, solidifying our foundation and implementing strategies and tools to help our team and business grow. He has also been extremely helpful in identifying team member skill sets and facilitating team confidence, getting clarity on our goals (both company and individual) and moving our company to a stronger position. In leading our planning sessions he has helped empower our team to think big and execute while getting us to think more analytically about our business. With Kory’s help, we now have a clear picture and an action plan to take our business to the next level and beyond.
Kraig Sadownikow – American Construction Services
Kory has been a lifesaver! I moved to Madison in June and have been building a massage and wellness business since September. I tried to go it alone with minimal results but the strategies I was using were mostly outdated and ineffective. Kory helped me to implement strategies that resulted in new clients right off the bat. I have been growing my client base steadily since I hired him. With Kory’s simple suggestions for improving my services, first-time clients have become repeat clients and eventually raving fans who refer their friends and loved ones.
I’ve always been good at what I do but the business building side has been an area of weakness. Kory helped me to see that much of it is fairly uncomplicated and has helped me to do a lot of it myself with confidence but without great expense or time commitment. By far, the greatest lesson I’ve learned since working with Kory is the importance of thinking BIG. He’s always pushing me to stretch my vision. He’s kind and understanding but always holds my feet to the fire.

– John Siebert – Siebert and Reynolds, CPAs

- My team productivity grew by 20%.
-Joe Peil – Joe’s Auto Service
“I’ve been in business for 36 years and was already named the national business person of the year in my industry. I am truly amazed at the depth of knowledge and caring that my ActionCOACH Business Coach has shown me within just a few months. I bless the day ActionCOACH came into my life! It’s worth every penny of my investment.”
-Patti K. – Dance Studio Owner
“In the first two months of ActionCOACH Business Coaching, our sales increased 80%, and in the next month another 44%!!”
-Chad M. – Monroe’s Carpet Cleaning
“I have been working with my ActionCOACH Business Coach for about 3 months. During that short time he has helped me increase my cash flow by over $42,000. He has shown me how to put documentation and systems in place so that now when we get something fixed, it stays fixed. We also trimmed over 25 hours a week from my time working IN the business. Now my goal is to find even better ways to use the 25 hours to work ON my business.”
-Cliff D. – Property Management Co.
“ActionCOACH has truly helped Vinyl Kraft reach goals that we have been struggling with for years. The training and accountability system, along with the weekly coaching, has helped us increase plant productivity by 5% and decrease plant rework by nearly 40%, all within one year. We consider these to be tremendous results. Our workplace culture has become more positive, and the financial return for ActionCOACH’s services is close to 6-fold. I highly recommend ActionCOACH’s business coaching services for anyone who is serious about improving their business.”
-Tim R. – Vinyl Kraft Windows
“We have been blessed with an abundance of success in the 34 plus years that we have been in business, and I believe that hiring our ActionCOACH business coach is one of the best decisions we have ever made. The coaching has helped me and all our team members to be more efficient and effective in our businesses. ActionCOACH helped us to clarify what we want our business to be and then create a map to get there. Thank you ActionCOACH and God Bless You”
–Ron D. – Garden Park Properties and Developers
“I started working with ActionCOACH exactly a year ago. I can honestly say it has been the most successful, driven, well directed year that I have had as a business owner. My revenue has more than doubled in the year. I now have a team of 5 (when I started it was only 3) and within 3 months this number will be 8. I have systemized many of the functions of my business, with a goal of the business running without me within the next 3 years. I am hugely motivated, as a direct result of the weekly reading, and activities that I do with my coach. I have also learned the skills and methods to motivate my team, which is having a massive effect on the bottom line of my business. I am so confident that I can achieve 3-4 years work in only 1 year with ActionCOACH, I recommend them to any business owner who is serious about growing their business into a saleable asset that runs without you.”
-Will D. – Eastside Home Loans
“Since starting business in 1981, I’ve heard and read over and over, ‘Don’t work harder, work smarter.’ I’ve also heard, ‘Don’t work in your business, work on it.’ But no one ever told me how, until I enrolled with ActionCOACH. The weekly coaching sessions show me what to look for, where to look for it, and what to do with it once I find it.”
-John D. – Klaes Image Productions
“My coach and Action have helped us identify our areas of weakness and have worked with us to step by step turn those weaknesses into strengths. We have made more progress in the last few months than we had made in the past few years—and it is focused and productive.”
-Drs. Carey & Sally Girgis – Girgis Chiropractic
“Over the past 18 months, the ActionCOACH team has been instrumental in the rapid growth experienced within our business. During this period, our coaches have served in a capacity similar to that of a Board of Directors to our organization. They have provided insight into every aspect of my business including management techniques, sales, marketing and much more. The training I have received has prepared me for the unexpected that I will surely face in the future.”
-Mike Eldredge – IHost Solutions
“One of the things that I love most about ActionCOACH is their program is set up to truly cater to my specific business needs.”
-Dr. Jeremiah Holmes, Holmes Chiropractic
“It has been my pleasure to be associated with the team at ActionCOACH for about 5 years. During that time, our company’s revenues have grown 135%. As a growing manufacturing company, we face many continuing challenges related to personnel, finance, developing systems etc. and their expertise has been especially helpful.
– RC Oberst, Industrial Ceramic Products
“Do you know your average dollar sale? Do you know your daily break-even point? Are you forever working “IN” your business and not “ON” your business? Do you have trouble delegating work to your employees? Do you want to grow your business and have it working for you so you can spend time with your family? Many of you remember when Argo & Lehne Jewelers was the premier jeweler in Columbus, Ohio. We didn’t change with the times and we ignored our competition and as a result we began to lose the market share we once had. We got too comfortable! Over the years, we enlisted the assistance of many firms who evaluated our situation and told us what to do to, but we rarely followed through.?? Hiring ActionCOACH was the best investment we could have made. We were able to increase our businesses cash flow almost immediately, including making a profit for the first time in many years. ActionCOACH will change you and your business, but don’t take my word for it, talk with them or attend an event with them – your business, your life, and your world will never be the same again.”
-Bob Argo – Argo and Lehne Jewelers
“To every improvement there is a cost, if you want to get there and get there fast, hire ActionCOACH. If you want to take the slow boat to china, read a book. However, for our business, ActionCOACH paid for itself within the first couple of months!”
-Vicki Marshall, VDM Management Company, Little Caesars Franchisee
“I really have appreciated my coaching program with ActionCOACH because it’s helped me dive into the root causes of my business problems rather than just dealing with surface issues. This has led to true change at a very fundamental level.”
-John Bentley II, Tech Servant Inc.
“I believe that hiring ActionCOACH is one of the best decisions we have ever made. It has helped all our team members and me to be more efficient and effective in our businesses by clarifying what we want our business to be and creating the map to get there.”
-Ron DeTemple, R.D. Properties and R.D. Developers
“More than anything else, working with my ActionCOACH has created an opportunity to look at my business with a fresh pair of eyes from a different perspective, from Operations to Succession Planning. At the fiscal year end January 31, 2012 we experienced a 22% growth in Sales. As of July 31, 2012 we continue to show Sales Growth of approximately 30%.”
-Gary A Kleinhenz, President-Kleinhenz Jewelers
“Working with ActionCOACH, we started measuring sales in a much different way as well as evaluating customers in all types of ways which is integral to a successful acquisition and integration we are embarking on. As much as we’ve accomplished, I am equally excited to implement all the personnel, sales and performance measurements and modifications. I can clearly see the sales growth and cost savings we are developing together.”
-Andy Decker, Decker Forklifts
“If you want to get serious about running your business and stop your business running you – call ActionCOACH. They will help you with systemization and train you how to start running a business while training others to help you grow it and with less stress on you.”
-Aaron Baaske, Medway Corp.
“Working with ActionCOACH has been one of the most important and valuable business decisions I’ve made since starting my design firm 10 years ago. Our profits are up just under 10%, and that’s including expanding my team by 30%!”
-Tara Ingalls, Owner, Tingalls Dzyn
“My ActionCOACH has been invaluable in my transition from physician to business owner. He has recognized what I lack in experience and expertise in the managerial and entrepreneurial side of practicing medicine and has given me the insight and tools to keep me focused and forward thinking. At times I get overwhelmed with the numerous tasks necessary to run a successful business, but being pushed beyond my comfort zone to face budgets and cash/flow items that I dread, I am growing not only as a business owner, but as a person outside of my career, as well.”
-Dr. Katrina McGillivray, Cypress Wellness Center
“I now feel that I can run my business like it was meant to be run!”
-Dave Mantia – Corner Stone Granite
“I highly recommend ActionCOACH business coaching. In fact, I can’t stop talking about it, because it has been such a help to me. I had been in business over nine years, and was beginning to feel rather overwhelmed. I was both bored with the business and feeling unprepared to take it to the next level. With ActionCOACH, you receive so many practical tools right from the start. Every time I meet with my coach, I leave energized with new ideas and concrete goals to meet. The ActionCOACH Program is comprehensive, logical, and goal oriented, and is exactly what business owners need to make sure they have addressed every aspect of developing a healthy successful business. The investment has proven to be one of the smartest business decisions I’ve made, and I wish I would have found this program years ago.”
-Sheryl Woodhouse–Keese, Twisted Limb Paperworks
“Hiring ActionCOACH was one of the top five decisions I’ve ever made for my business. My coach forces me to do the things I know I need to do while helping me see things that I just can’t see on my own. I think more analytically about my business now, making decisions that are more thoughtful than simply what “feels right.” It has also helped me structure the business so that it runs without me – I’m not the “product” anymore, so if I want to take a day off, I can, and things back at the office are still running!”
-Patrick East, Hanapin Marketing
“Since starting Klaes Image Productions, Inc. in 1981, I’ve heard and read over and over, “Don’t work harder, work smarter.” I’ve also heard, “Don’t work in your business, work on it.” But no one ever told me how until I started with ActionCOACH. The weekly coaching sessions show me what to look for, where to look for it, and what to do with it once I find it.”
-Bill Klaes, Klaes Image Productions, Inc.
“Thanks to the tools, resources and accountability from ActionCOACH, my business has been growing steadily. I have begun working toward building a scalable business, I just hired full time manager, and we’re up 26% and still growing!”
-Rachel Rasmussen, Owner & Founder, Rescue Desk LLC
