A Business Coach is better than a consultant for many reasons. With years of successful experience that can provide valuable insight, your Business Coach will help you develop long-term and short term goals and strategies, as well as improve your business in areas that you might have overlooked. You may be able to survive in business without the help of a Coach, but it's almost impossible to thrive...

From Skeptic to Supporter
Finding the Right Coach Turned Business Owners into Believers
Darrell and Gina Williamson are experts at providing and improving physical systems within a home or business. After all, it’s what they’ve done for a living for more than 20 years--providing security and monitoring systems. But when it came to implementing systems for success within their own business, they decided to call in a different type of expert--but not without hesitation.
“ I had some bad experience in the past with business coaching, and had heard some bad things from others who’d used business coaches. It seemed like other coaches I’d encountered did their pitch, conducted an analysis, and wanted you to sign up for more and more, but didn’t have any real solutions for you,” said Darrell. “So when I got a call from Ross’ associate wondering if I would be interested in his services, I had my guard up.”
There was something about the approach of ActionCOACH Business Coach Ross Cox, though, that gave Darrell reason to reconsider.
“I thought, here’s another one of those invitations to an ‘introductory meeting’ in a motel conference room, and at the end they want you to sign up for something. I told the person calling ‘I don’t want to be rude, but I have no interest in going to anything like that, but if Ross would like to contact me, I’d be happy to talk to him on the phone. I wasn’t even sure he would call, and I happened to be in Home Depot when my phone rang. I talked to him for maybe 20-30 minutes, sitting on a stack of wood. I can say now I’m really glad we gave him a chance.”
Ross was born and raised in Virginia, where he also received a strong liberal arts education from Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va. His involvement with the college has continued by having served as President of the Parents Advisory Council, member of the Board of Associates and Board of Trustees.
He has been married for 47 years, to his wife, Debbie, and together, they have raised two wonderful children, and now have 3 grandchildren. When not coaching, he enjoys a great game of golf at Starmount Forest Country Club and doing things with family and friends.
