120 Day Transformational

Work the System Transformational Coaching is an intense, hands-on experience that will carefully guide you through the necessary steps to shift your business into a “machine” with higher profits, dramatic growth, and streamlined operations... while delivering you the personal freedom you’ve always craved.

From Sam, a quick explanation of
120 Day Transformational Group Coaching and One-on-One Coaching

Work The System Transformational Group Coaching is an intense, hands-on learning experience that will guide you through the steps of permanently systemizing your business. The program is a direct reflection of the methodology that I present in my book, Work the System: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less.

One-on-One Coaching? Same thing, but more personalized and customized to your situation.

And with either option, whether you’re just starting out in business or have decades of experience, you will get solid, permanent results. We guarantee it!

(Be sure to check graduates’ testimonials at the bottom of this page…and note the special discount for developing country entrepreneurs…)

Miranda Burnet“I can’t say enough about Josh’s insight and ability to provide highly actionable advice. When I first started my company, it was just me and I was merely flying by the seat of my pants and hoping for the best. Less than a year later, thanks in large part to my coaching with Josh, I have a thriving million dollar business and a great staff who are helping the business grow even more each day. ‘Work the System Coaching’ was one of the best investments I’ve ever made!”
– Miranda Burnet, Flash Tattoos

Josh Fonger, my Work the System Consultants business partner, presents the program. Josh knows this material intimately and over the last four years he’s guided hundreds of business owners to firm control; to create super-efficient operations, dramatic growth, and predictable profits.

In either program, you’ll have plenty of opportunity for one-on-one time with Josh.

Just as we urge any business owner to physically document individual business systems, we insure Josh’s class sessions are tangible: We practice what we preach here, therefore all of the group coaching sessions will be recorded so that you don’t have to worry about missing a session, regardless of where you live or how busy you are. You can go through the program at your own pace and go back to sessions again and again.

Plus, the whole way through, you’ll have Josh as your personal coach to hold you accountable and to review your progress.

The ultimate end-goal of Transformational Coaching? To give you everything you need so you can forge your own way without our assistance.

Note that for Transformational Group Coaching, you’ll get a 50% discount if you reside in a developing country or run a non-profit. This page contains complete information, including pricing (scroll down…).

Accountability, Customization and Tracking

Accountability is a key factor in making Transformational Group and One-on-One coaching so effective. Josh will be your coach and he’ll be “in your face” in a gentle yet firm way to make sure you complete your tasks each week. It’s a powerful thing, to have a super-qualified mentor who is interested and enthusiastic; who is always pressing you to go further. It’s the mandatory thrust necessary to get you over the rough patches and into success.

Getting started alone can be a rough road. Let us help!

Customization? Your business is unique. Our methodology is powerful and time-tested, carefully engineered to systemize a business…but of course there is the individual situation that must be addressed. Your experience, your industry, your team…all must be considered.

As for tracking, know this isn’t about a feel-good sense of progress. Both you and Josh want to see real numbers that reflect real progress. From the very beginning, and for the duration of the program, progress will be objectively monitored.

Bottom line? The program is…

  1. customized to the individual, while…
  2. that individual is accountable to the coach, and…
  3. results are tracked

This is not a rehash of what is in the book

Although unwaveringly true to my book, 17 hours of additional material has been painstakingly assembled through assisting hundreds of businesses around the world via Transformational Coaching and onsite Premier Consulting projects.

We’re unique: No one else can do this systemization work, does this work, or has the experience to do it right the first time. The advanced-skill training in People Systems, Communication Systems, Measurement Systems, Maintenance Systems and much more will skyrocket your company’s success, FAST.

Managing the systemization of a business is a challenging quest and most who attempt it on their own will fail, but here’s a program that will guide you to success. We guarantee it! For years, Josh has been transforming businesses, large and small. With an MBA and massive experience implementing the Work the System Method in the real world, he’s the one I trust to help you systemize your business.

Why your newly systemized business will stay that way

If your business is growing like never before, the bottom-line has risen dramatically, and your workweek is significantly reduced…and you know for sure that you made all that happen, why would you allow your operation to slip back into dysfunction? Yes, we’ll develop maintenance systems for you near the end of the course, but here’s the driving force for permanence: Once you get a taste of how incredibly satisfying and profitable it is to operate a systemized business, there’s no going back. You simply won’t allow it.

-Sam Carpenter, January 2017

Adam Kreitman“I got a lot out of reading “Work The System“… but I got so much more out of doing private coaching with Josh. Working together, we got much deeper into systemizing my business, and it’s way more efficient than it would have been just by reading the book. It was totally worth the investment of time/money and I recommend it to anyone who’s serious about making more and working less.”
– Adam Kreitman, Words That Click

What can I expect?

  • I


  • This is where you learn the critical mindset shift that will change your life and business forever. This transformation is formally expressed through the Strategic Objective, which is your simple but clear map for creating a business that’s scalable, profitable, repeatable, and can run without you. Creating your “million dollar” freedom plan cannot be rushed, but you’ll feel the weight lifted once this piece of the puzzle has been completed.

  • II


  • Proactively creating a culture where your team makes the right decision every time —without mind-reading – is possible after you create and implement your General Operating Principles. This document unlocks the full potential of your staff and enables everyone to think strategically and congruently…like a business owner! You’ll learn some highly actionable tips and tricks to free-up your time in order to work on your business instead of in it.

  • III

    Solid Growth

  • In this phase, each new working procedure will bring immediate increases in time, profitability, quality, and growth. You’ll have the key tools for leading this “systems initiative” successfully the first time, leveraging all of the best practices and templates of your peers, and discovering how to get staff to enthusiastically “climb on board.” Your competition is now way behind you, left in the dust. Things will never be the same…

  • IV


  • Now that your structure is set, it’s time to put gas on the fire! Supercharge your growth systems, communication systems, and your most variable systems…your people. You can feel the efficiency, and you’re thinking of new ways to jump ahead even faster. The WTS Method has now penetrated every department of your business and you’re moving quickly to the next level. And, at home, you’re getting your life back…

  • V

    Fine Tuning

  • Your company is night-and-day compared to where we began, but you know in order to take your systems from 90% efficient to 98% efficient, measurements, accountability, and tracking all need to be put in place. This is the level of detail that only large organizations reach. Now you have true control over your quality, delivery, and growth. Having these tools in place allows you to run the business without having to be the business. You’re free!

  • VI

    Making it Stick

  • This final and incredibly satisfying stage is dedicated to making the maintenance of your business, and the cultivation of your personal life, into habits cast in stone. You’ll stay on the “right” path; the path you have defined. There’s no question you’re on a laser-focused trajectory to more and more free time, profit, and peace…with you and your team fully equipped to manage it all on your own! You’ll never go back!


After you complete the program, just think:

The heavy lifting is over and your life and business are changed forever. The people around you wonder, “WHAT happened to you!? How can your business be running so smoothly and profitably when you’re not even there?” Soak it in! You deserve it. Was it hard work? Yes! Was it worth it? Definitely! Would you do it again? In a heartbeat! You’re on easy-street now.

This is what you read about in Sam’s book. Now, you made it happen!

This is not just a temporary mind-game/feel-good emotional high, but a real-life mechanical jump ahead. It’s one that will endure; one that makes money whether you show up or not. You’re a true business owner now. Welcome to the family!


Sherry Tolbert“I have purchased many tools, classes, books, etc to get my office running more smoothly but really haven’t seen a strong impact from any of them… This is the first program that actually told me to not just “set up systems,” but to actually name the required systems and detail how to set them up. Priorities, bringing staff on board, templates – it’s all there…Thanks for all you’ve done for our firm!”
– Sherry Tolbert, Tolbert CPA


Q: What will the 120-Day Transformational Group Coaching sessions be like? One-on-One Coaching? For Group Coaching, GoToMeeting is used so there will be audio and visual elements. Some of the presentations will be discussions, some will be structured lectures, and others will be reviews of group participants’ actual documentation. There are seventeen presentation sessions in total. In addition, there are six “Office Hours” sessions so you can work directly with Josh on your business. Sam will occasionally be present. Classes and Office Hours sessions are always “live” so you can interact with Josh and the group. (The sessions are not pre-recorded as is typical with many online training programs.) In both Group and One-on-One Transformational Coaching, you’ll have unlimited email and phone support so you can get all of your individual questions answered.

With one-on-one coaching, you get Josh’s full attention in each session (scroll down for full information).

For either option, Group or One-on-One coaching, if you have questions you’ll email Josh to arrange for a phone or Skype conversation.

The huge majority of coaching clients see dramatic improvements in efficiency and profits within the first 30 days.

With both Group and One on One Coaching, the singular goal is to quickly transform your business while paving the way to long-term super-efficiency and profitability.

Q: How is the Group Coaching Program different than the Academy? The live Group Coaching Transformation program takes you through the nuts and bolts of actually implementing procedures into the various areas of your business. Whereas the recorded Academy training product is focused on helping you achieve the right mindset and delivering the basics of applying the WTS method, the Group Coaching program moves into advanced application of the method specific to growing your sales, managing your team, boosting operational excellence and other more advanced business skills. Also, the Group Coaching program relies heavily on real world examples from current and previous clients, utilizing actual business documentation to show you how to make implementation a success in your own business. If you need additional one-on-one support, Josh is available to work with you on the specifics of your business.

Q: You say I get the Work the System Academy product as part of the Group and Individual Coaching programs? Yes. In both Group Coaching and One-on-One Coaching, you will get full access to the Academy, for life.

Q: How do Office Hours work? Josh will be available to meet with you one-on-one whenever you arrange to meet with him (you have access to his calendar for sign-up). He will help you refine your Strategic Objective to make it more scalable and focused, review your Operating Principles to make sure they perfectly reflect the core decision-making guidelines of your business, hold you accountable to your procedure project plan… as well as help you through any other problem you may face during your WTS Transformation. Josh has helped hundreds of businesses achieve great success and he highly recommends that you take advantage of Office Hours. Office Hours are held over Skype or the phone in 25 minute sessions.

Q: If I have a start-up business is it too soon for me to sign up for either of the coaching programs? If you are serious about designing a business that you can scale based on documented systems, and you have a general idea of the path you should follow to accomplish this, you should sign up. If your start-up is still in the exploratory and experimentation stage, then wait until your business is a bit more developed before embarking on the system building process.

Q: What if I own a large business? Premier Consulting is a customized implementation plan for larger businesses facing complex challenges. These engagements are more long term, six months or more, with remote and onsite assistance, and include training your team members for successful implementation. Josh manages these projects with up to a half dozen on-site visits. Sam is personally involved if requested. See Consulting page. We’ve worked with clients up to $500M in annual revenues.

Q. OK. Put it in a nutshell. Why should I do this? As noted in Sam’s book, Work the System: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less, here is what you can expect from a properly executed systemization: Increase sales and profit margins, remove chaos, eliminate waste, improve internal efficiencies, create a stand-alone business that is separate from you and has intrinsic value as a cash-generating “machine,” decrease the number of hours you spend working, drop personal stress, implement potent sales processes, establish clear direction that is scalable and profitable, watch employees become empowered and enthusiastic about the structure you’ve put in place, find yourself making quick clear-headed decisions….and discover, as a byproduct of the Transformation, that you’re spending far less time killing fires and much more time building your business and your personal life.

What Recent Graduates Say About Work The System Transformational Group Coaching

Brandon Roggow“Having Josh as a coach has been awesome! My sales have gone up 24% in the last 4 months and I’m spending less and less time at the office… As a side bonus, I’ve kicked my caffeine addiction and made some personal life tweaks that have had a major impact on the home-front.”
– Brandon Roggow, Habitat Health & Fitness

Katrina Jones“WTS Coaching has completely transformed my business, and the way I look at it and work on it. Finally, after a year of searching, I have complete clarity on what a system should look like, and how to successfully incorporate it within my business day to day. The company now has so much more structure, a very clear goal and there are no more distractions. What was once a complicated maze of to-do lists and concerns, is now a clear black & white structure, that runs on figures, reports and facts, rather than emotions, feelings and personal motivation…I can’t thank Josh and Sam enough for the transformation they have caused within my business and within myself.”
– Katrina Jones, Kendall Bailey

“I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the program. The weekly webinars and the Skype one-on-one calls really assisted me through the intimidating business systemization process. The material that Josh covered was well thought out and covered all aspects of the process. Josh is an outstanding communicator with the perfect set of skills to guide one through the WTS process. I highly recommend any business to enroll in the WTS Group Coaching Program. You will be very impressed with the process that Josh takes you through.”
– Eric Schmitz, California Athletic Clubs

Oli Traustason“Josh’s coaching was terrific and the presentations and analysis were very helpful. I highly recommend Josh and WTS. My encounter with WTS and his staff was ‘Life Changing.’ Thanks a million.”
– Oli Traustason, MD Orion Eye, Surgery Center

“The WTS Transformational Group Coaching program really helped me finally sit down and do something about all this chaos. Last week, I moved out of my function as Product Manager and put one of my staff in the position…”
– Mifthas Haris, Virture Infotek Pte. Ltd.

Mark Ainley“Josh and the WTS Coaching program gave our company the clear path to getting our company operating the way we always wished it would …after reading the book multiple times I still wasn’t confident in what to do first or next. Josh and the program took us week by week teaching us what we need to do, what we can expect to happen, and how to navigate obstacles that are common to arise when attempting to transform a company. There isn’t a company or manager in the world that would not benefit from Josh and the Work the System Coaching Program.”
– Mark Ainley, GC Realty & Development

“I found the program really helpful to keep me moving along through the material and getting the “heavy lifting” done. Reading the book, being on the webinars and going through the weekly homework and “do it now” sheets really helps to hammer home the message, structure the process of systematizing my business and Josh was always there with answers to questions when I met obstacles.”
– TJ Gabriel, Lazy Lunch Ltd

“Since joining, I have clear direction and a decision making framework that has lent harmony in my mind.”
– Bart Patel, Mashiv Inc

Marcus Santamaria“Since working with Josh my business is up 20% and expenses are down 10%. Best of all, I’m working less and finally taking weekends off. Now I can be successful in my business and be an attentive and effective parent as well.”
– Marcus Santamaria, Shortcut to Spanish

“Great content. Changed my life!”
– Marius Bicu, Unilact Transilvania SRL

Ilana Blank“For me, WTS group Coaching program taught me how to take everything I read in the book and apply it to my business. It helps a lot to go step by step in each session and just focus on the task at hand. It´s a lot of work so it was great to have someone by my side to give me accountability and just help me stay on track”
– Ilana Blank, Mail Boxes Inc.

Tony Cigno“… thank you Josh, for your guidance and a wonderful program. The one-on-one time was very valuable, and I appreciate your ‘can do’ approach and the way you directed me in the development of my business. It was a very worthwhile investment, I recommend it to everyone!”
– Dr. Tony Cigno, Cigno Family Dental

“The WTS Transformational Coaching program has made my vision of how to get where I’m going more clear, and has given me the confidence and direction to manage and build the infrastructure that I didn’t have before. ”
– Jeff Turner, Local CleanUps

“…it’s an excellent hands on and easily understandable system that encompasses the more laborious ISO9001:2008 Quality Management System that ensures good business practices. It ensures business owners are not forever self-employed, but can start functioning as fully fledged business owners. (If you understand the distinction.) We all “talk the talk”, but WTS program allows the mind swing to “walk the talk.””
– Ben Dell, Riebens

Amy Smith“Josh helped our family business become efficient and lean. The group coaching program was an incredibly worthwhile investment… I can easily recommend Josh and his company to any business looking to create systems, processes and procedures to streamline operations.”
– Amy Smith, Saratoga Arms Hotel

John Larsen“The WTS Group Coaching Program is an exceptional value and probably the single best investment I’ve made in a decade. It has helped me get control of my company and is foundational to Anton Digital’s growth plans.”
– John Larsen, Anton Digital

“Josh & Sam’s WTS Group Coaching session was an EYE OPENER. I would sincerely recommend this program to all SME’s – because as an SME ourselves, quite often companies our size downgrades the importance of systemization, labeling it as a waste of TIME. Josh’s coaching session was convenient, easy to comprehend and implement, interactive and No-Frills attached. We look forward to being a regular in all his future Group Coaching Sessions. Here’s wishing him and his team the very BEST”
– Abbas Shaikh, Regent Group

“Before the WTS Transformational Coaching program, I had no clue how I was going to retire from my office and my obligations. I would take time off, but the work just piled up until I took care of it after I returned…it is exciting to see progress!”
– Carol Bloesser

Adam Saylor“My investment with the WTS program has been very beneficial for the company… It has greatly improved the communication and expectations with our staff, clients and vendors and we continue to refine our systems daily to be as efficient and simple as we can get them… The resources we gained via this training have helped us continue to grow the company. I just wish I had done it sooner!”
– Adam Sayler, Arthur Winn Property Services

“The Webinar content, week by week was superb, and the follow up after each session was very helpful, with a recording of each segment, plus many pertinent attachments to complete the tasks necessary. I am definitely “much the wiser” after our adventure together, and would highly recommend this program to all business owners who truly want to make their business better and more efficient. It does takes a lot of work to complete, but what doesn’t, if you want a better result.”
– Steven Marsh, Elizebethan Catering Services

Ahmad Jooma“Josh is very professional and guides you through creating systems in your workplace with a sense of ease. His experience in the process is obvious and gave me confidence to follow through. I enjoyed our one-on-one calls: the time flew by as Josh presented the material in an engaging and easy to understand manner”
– Ahmad Jooma, Jooma Care Homes

Jason Bross“Using Josh’s systems of automating our business…has changed the way we operate our business!”
– Jason Bross, Lifestyle Foods

“Step by Step WTS guides you through the process of identifying and articulating your unique process. Thank you for helping me see through the fog of “excess” and find clarity in my purpose.”
– Timothy Lay, TPA Financial

“…priceless benefits! With every bit of progress working the system, I gain back more of my mental focus and energy, lower my stress, sleep more and worry less.”
– Matt Torney, Earth and Sky Construction

Pascal Wagner“Josh, the program definitely helped me put more of my systems together and actually focus on my business instead of having my focus in my business. I think having the modules spread out …made a huge difference in actually watching and implementing what was covered. It’s definitely helped streamline the quality of our service and has helped the business grow just beyond me. When I first started the program I had 1 employee and it was extremely difficult to get on the same page on how our business runs. Now I have a team of 6 and we’re able to make a lot more progress!”
– Pascal Wagner, The Facebook and Google Ads Guy

Larry Aull

“I really enjoyed working with Josh one-on-one… He knows how to keep you focused on the important tasks at hand… There’s something to be said for accountability!”
– Larry Aull, Pharm. D. Head to Toe, Research and Development

Nickolas Bell

“It’s been great working with Josh – my life has become so much simpler and more enjoyable…thanks to WTS Group Coaching.”
– Nicolas Bell, Nick Bell Translations

David Bardon“I’ve known about the need for, and importance, of having working procedures. We struggled with this for years… Well, that has all changed now. Our manager group (myself included) now has clarity… Thank you so much for getting us on the right track.”
– David Bardon, Bardon Bowling Centers

Nadjeschda Taranczewski“The Work The System Group Coaching Program will kick-start professionalizing your business. Regardless of whether you want to create a solid foundation for a business, you want to scale in the future or if you want to reorganize an existing business, the Work The System approach breaks down every step into bite sized chunks that you can start to implement right away. If you are serious about your business, this is the course for you.”
– Nadjeschda Taranczewski, Circumplex Coaching

“After reading the book I realized that this is exactly what my engineering business was lacking over the past 17 years… I just completed the Work the System Group Coaching program led by Josh, and now I have staff buy-in to the changes needed to run my company from an ‘outside and slightly elevated’ position. If you want to get your systems working then get Josh’s professional guidance.”
– John Cruikshank, JMC2 Civil Engineers & Surveyors

“Josh is accessible, fun to work with, and asks the tough questions to help you get laser focused on making more money. My business now has the strategy and foundation of documented systems and I’m seeing great results!”
– Jared Fielding, Fielding Investments Inc.

“Great investment of time and money, I highly recommend working with Josh. I now have much more free time to work ON my business instead of IN my business… we’re way more efficient now. Thanks a lot Josh!”
– Mahesh Kolhe, Essaypoint

Sharon Desjarlais“Investing in WTS has been one of the most profitable decisions we’ve ever made…. Communications between team members is far more efficient and productive… and we’ve got a solid plan in place to continue scaling up our business in a way that actually frees us as owners. In a heartbeat, I recommend Josh and WTS Group Coaching to anyone who’s serious about creating a business that’s an asset rather than just another job.”
– Sharon Desjarlais, Client Rich

“Josh guided me through the systemization process in a very logical way, with one step being solid preparation for the next. His experience is deep and he’s confident, and I couldn’t make a stronger recommendation for the program, no matter the type of business.”
– Ray Norton, Rassas Battery Inc.

“The Work the System system is terrific and I’m so pumped by the process of processes – I’m going to be a tweaker for the rest of my life! Thank you to Josh and his calm guidance as well as all the clear videos and materials – it keeps it flowing when it feels overwhelming. Call me a fan of WTS!”
– Shawna Schuh, Women in the Pet Industry Network

Ryan Flynn“I really enjoyed Sam’s book but as the owner-operator of the business, I struggled to put the WTS methodologies into practice. The WTS coaching program helped immensely, breaking everything down into small, bite size pieces, week-over-week. Josh is a great instructor and provides lots of real world, practical examples to help convey each week’s message.”
– Ryan Flynn, Charmac Solutions

“The WTS Coaching Program taught me many valuable lessons. The most important lesson for me was to position myself as if I were looking down at my business and seeing all the moving parts. Josh helped me to see that, even though I own and work behind the chair in my salon. My true passion and my true self is being an education. I will take what I have learned from the WTS Coaching Program and implement it as an educator in the hair styling industry.”
– Eleanor Pinkney, Natural Perceptions Salon

“It is one of the best business decisions I’ve made. Josh has a passion for this work and really understands the material. He’s been a support by my side in facing the myriad daunting challenges in our business and in going to the next level. I highly recommend the WTS program, as it will build stronger entrepreneurs who can create better companies for themselves, their staff, and their customers. The success skills developed here are timeless and will last for life.”
– Saeed Rouhani, Camros Organic Eatery

“Josh Fonger is a great complement to Sam Carpenter. His webinar presentations lent clarity and gave many practical examples to the material presented by Sam in his book. I am impressed by his clear-sighted business sense. With thanks to Josh, I was able to see exactly how I should change my business.”
– James Dunstan, The Vine LTD

“Josh takes you through the program in a very measured and detailed way, which really gives you the results you need as a business owner. At first you want to move fast, but really the best thing is to take it slowly, follow the process, follow the system and the magic will come. Yes, its hard work. Yes, it might make you feel like you’re not achieving things as quickly as possible. But what you do get is actionable results at the end of it which make all of the effort and time worth while. I thoroughly recommend the course for business owners who want to look at their business as a system which can be controlled and managed, as opposed to seeing it as a conglomerated mess which is causing their lives a lot of stress and strain.”
– Chris Price, www.arkadvance.com

– Wiley Long, Wiley Long Enterprises

Pim Piepers“After reading Sam Carpenter’s book ‘Work the System: the Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less’, I couldn’t wait to systemize my life and business.

It’s already the best (personal) business investment I’ve ever made.”
– Pim Piepers, Piepers Audiovisuele Communicatie

– Marla Martin, HSA for America

“I have read hundreds of books on business systems and management, but I never felt moved or motivated to actually change things. After reading Sam’s WTS I just felt that I had to dig deeper in it, hence the WTS Coaching Program. Josh has been wonderful, supplying me invaluable information on how to improve my business thus giving me more quality time for my personal life.”
– Rafiza Rahim, Servis Stesyen Kembara “gas station”

– Joe Bowers, Small Business Authority

“Winging it was never OK, however we did OK… we thought. We have good people, however, from time to time we were held hostage by a good person. We are now creating a system that holds good people accountable, thanks to the Work The System Academy, and Coaching program.”
– Perry Hildebrandt, Flooring Canada

Petra Varutoiu“What I appreciated most about the Group Coaching program is the encouragement received, that such a robust change in the way of conducting day to day business is indeed possible…
With the Work the System Coaching program don’t expect magic… but do expect a solid framework and practical tools that keep you going long after the initial enthusiasm of yet another great business solution has worn out.”
– Petra Varutoiu, Iris Lemn

– Michael Shupp, Michael Anthony Furniture

“I recommend WTS Group Coaching to anyone who is serious about taking their business and their lives to the next level.
I had read Work The System. I had listened to the audio book. I had even implemented much of what Sam recommends in my business. But working with Josh speeded up the process through a flood of new time and energy saving tips and examples that helped me see the direct benefits of the methodology.”
– Zachary Sexton, Asian Efficiency

“WTS coaching has changed the game for my company. We are more productive than ever before. Our conversions from Leads to Opportunities has been unprecedented, and we are all so excited with what the future holds for our company: so much business has developed in response to our lead management system, which was our very first “easy” process to refine and implement while in the program. This coaching program was a very smart investment with benefits that will keep producing for years to come. Very exciting developments! Thank you Sam, Josh, and team!”
– Suzette West, World West Investments Inc.

Rob Foncannon“The program really brought the concepts presented in the book to life. I can easily say that I would not have had as many successes and achieved as much as I have without the benefit of the training program.
Josh is a hands on teacher and is very accessible. His knowledge of how to implement the system is second to none with the exception of Sam.
I would not hesitate to refer the program to anyone interested in gaining control of their business.”
– Rob Foncannon, Foncannon Tax & Financial Services
