|Brad Sugars, Founder|
Sugars, who founded the company in 1993 from the back bedroom of his parents’ suburban Brisbane home, is recognized as the top business coach in the world, and over the years has conducted more than 14,000 one-on-one business coaching sessions, in addition to the thousands of group coaching workshops and seminars he has presented in dozens of countries.
A self-described “serial entrepreneur,” he started his first business in Australia at age 15, when he hired his mates to deliver papers for his paper route. After earning an accounting degree from Queensland University in Brisbane, he became an owner or investor in no less than 30 different businesses, including a copy and print shop where a series of newsletters on sales and marketing to his data base became the foundation for his one-on-one business coaching sessions.
His ability to make the complex simple and easily communicate with his clients drew the attention of Robert Kiyosaki, who invited Sugars to teach his strategies to Kiyosaki’s entrepreneurial students in Hawaii.
After returning to Australia and starting Action, Sugars soon realized the franchise model was the best way to leverage his systems while attracting top-tier corporate and executive talent to deliver Action’s products and services.
As a result, the company started its franchise expansion in 1997. After a rebrand to ActionCOACH in 2006, the company currently has more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries and is recognized as the number one business coaching firm in the world.
A best-selling author of 14 highly acclaimed business books, Brad has taught nearly a half-million people worldwide how to create business, real estate and financial success.
