Business Coach Success Stories

Some comments about Townsville Business Builder, Marketer & Coach

James Hooper:

I first became associated with Business Coaching in 2002 with the idea of developing several associate run Chiropractic practices. My first coach enabled me to set some basics for the business model and introduced me to the need for specific systems and procedures. After 2 years my first coach left the area so I went alone until I was referred to James Hooper in Townsville. I began with James on a weekly basis in January 2007 until the present.

Lifestyle Chiropractic began from scratch in July 2003. I had 2 practices then.

At present we have 15 practices from Innisfail to Adelaide, 20 Doctors of Chiropractic, 34 Chiropractic assistants and 10 in our admin team, in Mackay – a total of 64. We are currently the largest group of Chiropractic practices in Australasia. I now have a business partner and we are on a very aggressive growth plan to take us to the next level.

Without a coach this would not have occurred and more specifically James Hooper. James’s ability in business is unquestionable and his ability to grasp an understanding of our profession and my specific needs is uncanny. At times I feel he knows more about my business than I do.

Specific things James helped me with are systems, time management, how to produce and handle growth, statistics and life balance. However James’s greatest talent for me is brainstorming.

A brain storming session with James Hooper can end in some amazing and exciting outcomes.

I believe everyone needs a coach and if in business, a business coach. I strongly recommend James and I know if you follow his recommendations your business will improve dramatically.

And another from a multinational:

Our company has employed and enjoyed the services of Business Coach James Hooper since 2004.

Since that time, our sales have increased by 150% and staffing levels by 60%.

Under the direction of our Coach, we have rapidly advanced from a company that was merely floating along to one that now is strongly focused and driven. Due to directions from James, we have been the market leader within Australia for our industry since early last year – two years ahead of the goal we had set ourselves for 2010!

Whatever the size of your business or industry in which you are involved, I would highly recommend the services of Coach James Hooper.

The skills you will gain will stand you in good stead for the rest of your business life.

And from a Townsville business owner:

I have been working with James for nearly three years and I cannot see this changing any time soon.  James has been there with me shoulder to shoulder with every crisis and celebration we’ve experienced in that time.

Under his coaching the group has gone from $2m to $6m turnover, net profit has trebled and my working week has gone from 65 hours including weekends to less than 36 hours and no more weekends and this is in an industry of 24/7 supply of service.

Having someone from the outside to tell you how “it is” is essential when you are in a position of not having someone to answer to.  There has been more than the occasional character building conversations between us but the health of the businesses and of me is always his underlying agenda.

Had I not made the decision to work with James, I would still have my head down in the business and not focusing on the direction of it.
