In addition to the amazing benefits of coaching and mentoring, entrepreneurs and business owners can grow dramatically through getting knowledge.

“If you’re green you’re growing, if you’re ripe you rot.”

“When I heard Alan Melton present a program, I was so impressed by his knowledge and emphasis on business ethics, that I invited him to speak to our Executive Roundtable, a weekly forum for our clients in career transition, many of whom aspire to be business owners. I was equally impressed by his presentation to our group. It is clear that Alan is interested in coaching business owners to their best solution. He is also a wealth of information for those who believe they would like to be entrepreneurs and assists them in discovering whether that is an appropriate path for them.” Ann Golden, Co-Owner, Career Strategies
