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.” Ray Kroc

Ann Golden“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
