In 2018, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) challenged us to “provide substantiation” for the advertising claim that “Inspire Results clients get a 300-700% return on investment within the first year.” After reviewing the client performance data we sent to them, we’re proud to say that the BBB “closed the ad-review case as substantiated.”
“To try to quantify how Roger and the entire Inspire Results Team has positively affected my business operations is simply impossible. The positive impact is immeasurable. What I can say is that the quality of his experience and laser focused advice has taken my thought processes and business processes to a different level. As a business owner the last thing I want is another meeting. However, when Roger shows up, it’s always a pleasure, because I know positive change is just around the corner.”Keith HardingCEO/President, RYAN Consulting Group, Inc., Indianapolis
“There are multiple plans that Roger focuses on that I find beneficial. I like the 1-page business plan, the 90-day business plan and the focus sheets. For me, over time, the 90-day action plan has been the most rewarding. When I pick it up and start checking off items, it helps me see what I accomplished.”
Julie BerryOwner, Carson Design Architecture and Interior Design
“It’s hard to describe just how much Roger and his coaching/consulting has helped our businesses thrive. The one on one sessions are a phenomenal resource. It’s comforting having an experienced extra set of ears to talk through ideas and at times sticking points. Having him has definitely helped us grow and achieve more sooner than we could have imagined.”
Jim SorgiOwner/CEO, Sorgi Sports
“I contracted with Inspire Results in June of 2012 in effort to develop my “Why”, a strategic sustainable business plan, refine my management skills, and cultivate new ideas for continued growth of my company. Mission accomplished! During this effort I found that Roger and Susie go beyond all my expectations and they truly partnered with me and my business. Their Christian values and character have richly blessed and influenced me. Thank you, Roger and Susie Engelau.”

“I recently analyzed the impact of business coaching on my financial results. I knew things were better but was amazed at how much. Over the 6 months prior to working with Roger, our net income before taxes was —$23,000. After 6 months of working with Roger, our 6-month profit was $159,148, even after paying a bonus to our employees. Some of that was from new business but over $125,000 was directly attributable to Roger’s work with me–a nearly 400% return on my annual investment in coaching.
“In business and in life, we often don’t know what we don’t know.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Inspire for several years. They have given me a fresh prospective of my business and what’s important to me, my family and my team. They have helped our business grow and also helped us adapt during the periods when business has declined. They have provided direction in consolidating companies, addressing and establishing a new culture, identifying new talent and leading and developing the management team. I’ve also received advise on growing my business by pursuing new markets and better sales techniques.
Thanks to Inspire, my companies are more profitable, leaders are motivated and the future is brighter. I also have a clearer direction of my future and received the guidance provided by a board of directors for larger companies at a fraction of the cost. They have also introduced me to other business owners for advice and council.
I strongly recommend Inspire to small businesses dealing with the many challenges of running a business with limited resources.”
“Chad Blacklock is my business coach, and I cannot say enough positive things about my experience so far. Honestly, I was unsure of what a business coach could offer my company. We had been in business for five years and experienced continuous growth in clients and revenue each year. We had just upgraded and moved into our new office, which would allow us to expand our team and the services we offered. Like many business owners, we all have our strengths and our weaknesses. Chad and I have worked diligently on identifying and utilizing my strengths to help me grow in areas where I lacked the experience that I needed for a successful expansion. Chad helped me utilize my strengths (leadership, team-oriented, strong work ethic, growth-oriented, super passionate, and driven) to improve on my biggest weakness (strategic planning). I understood that passion and drive without disciplined strategic planning could jeopardize the growth that our company had experienced thus far. Chad is excellent when it comes to planning for the future. His attention to detail is second to none, and I feel like I have grown so much in the short amount of time we have been working together. The success that we have experienced in such a short amount of time is a testament to how invaluable having a strategic partner, and business coach can be. Chad is very accessible and responsive, and he allows me to bounce ideas off of him whenever I need to. He sends me useful resources and potential opportunities regularly. Thank you for helping me maximize my company’s growth and potential.”Charles Lucas MSW, LCWS, Owner & Therapist, Lucas Group Solutions
I have worked with Natalie for 8 months and she has become an important part of my team. My goal is to grow Hipp Inspired Experiences. While I originally thought that meant I needed to focus on sales, I really needed to do a few important things to make our foundation strong. A new building, new logo/enhanced name, a website to much better tell our story, a new IT partner and security measures, and a new hire will allow us hit the road running in 2020.
Natalie didn’t dictate any of what we did, but was there to help me talk through it, figure out how to do it, and encourage me when it all seemed a little daunting. And at the same time, we’ve had an extremely busy year. She has coached me through negotiations and called me out on some “head trash” that was holding me back. I look forward to our continued relationship and I truly believe she can help me get to my end goal.”
“I’m looking through financials preparing for 2015 budget. We have year-to-date seen 40% growth over last year, almost 20% over 2014 plan and shown an 11% net!!!!!! Thank you SO much!! This is because of you and your help!!! We may meet our 2018 revenue goal this year!!”Jod WoodsOwner/Partner, Economy Heating and Air
“Roger was a solid rock in helping me navigate the transition from 2nd generation to 3rd generation (and successfully avoiding the problems of the 1 to 2 transition!) in our long opened family business. The result since then has been the company growing well beyond where it was before the transition. Roger is a key member of my leader team and provides that outside, non-bias look at the important issues facing our small company. He doesn’t hold back on pointing out the areas we need to work on to grow as a company, as a team and as individuals.”
Joe LucasPresident, Breiner Non-Metallics
“Roger has been a great help in coming along side me and coaching me in leading Ramco Supply. It’s not always been comfortable, however the results have been fantastic. Roger has the ability to listen and find the real issues and then provide solutions and ideas. Roger has helped me grow our company over 30% in the last 4 years and forever changed the way I tackle the challenges of business.”Marvin RamerOwner, Ramco Supply

“A lot of things have changed over the last three years. When we first met with Inspire Results, I was doing a lot of tasks throughout the business. I was doing purchasing, I was doing accounting, I was doing the actual physical work—issuing our POs, closing our books, and things of that nature. And then Roger came. One of the first things he did was delegate all of my duties to other people. We hired a purchasing agent, and freed up a lot of my time where I could work on the business instead of in it. He’s taught me how to act like an owner, act like a president, delegate my duties downward, and look at things with a different perspective to look at things going forward five years, instead of what’s going on today.”Jason CrouseCOO, Fortville Feeders, Inc
“Inspire has been great in helping our growing business take shape and not only grow, but become more organized and profitable.
We had outgrown our old management model and I was struggling as a small business owner to adapt while juggling too many responsibilities. The demands of the business really became overwhelming even though we were profitable.
Thanks for the great help to Roger and the Inspire team.”
“My first one, I didn’t know what to expect and at the end of the day walked out emotionally drained with a migraine. It did provide me with some clear direction, even just on what I needed to gain clarity and direction on. By the end of the year, sticking with my Growth Plan Workshop and what I had committed to within each session I had attained my 3 year goals within year one! No other goal setting or strategic planning workshop I’ve ever been to has offered such grit and tactical attainability with such high ROI.”Amanda ParkerOwner, Collective Alternative Marketing

“Roger’s quarterly planning meetings are outstanding. You sit down for the better part of a day, and go through all your goals and plans.
