Marlene Powell - Helping Business Owners Conquer COVID-19

Marlene Powell is an ActionCOACH business coach who has been coaching business owners for more than a decade.

Marlene's personal brand is defined by precision in all that she does so it is not surprising that the Westville based franchise has consistently been placed in the top 100 in the world.

Currently, says Marlene, "Anybody who is in business is an ideal client because everybody needs help during COVID." Generally, Marlene's clients include start-up businesses, businesses that are growing, established businesses whose owners want to enhance their quality of life and those who are wanting to sell or hand over their businesses to the next generation or sell.

In her own business, her first shift to accommodate lockdown was to move to working online and to learn about the various communication platforms available such as Zoom or Teams. Says Marlene, "The lockdown has made me a better coach. They always say that to become a great sailor you have to go through a storm. This period has made me more focused and has got me to really understand why I own my business."

"Some of my clients have thrived while others have been unable to generate an income - so there have been a variety of responses to COVID -19 restrictions on the economy. The experience has provided an ideal opportunity for business owners to find out what the true purpose of their business is and to question whether or not the business has given them the results that they intended. This evaluation has forced business owners to assess their business models and look at how they will survive and thrive in the next decade."

As a business coach, Marlene will help business owners to deliver the results they desire using proven tools, methodologies and systems, tested and perfected over tens of thousands of businesses worldwide for over more than two decades. She will hold you accountable for your results and just like a sports coach, push you to perform at optimal levels. "Either you can take ownership, accountability or responsibility to achieve your dreams or you can find blame, excuses or be in denial... The choice is up to you," explains Marlene.

ActionCOACH has grown to be one of the fastest growing franchises in the world and is the number one business coaching firm in the world. There are currently more than 1200 ActionCOACH offices in over 82 countries; in South Africa there are 55 coaches.
