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 are proud to say that the BBB “closed the ad-review case as substantiated.”

Co-Owner, Inspire Results Business Coaching

“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.

Key changes were that Roger helped me focus like a laser beam on profitability and then helped me focus my key employees in the same way. He helped me change what I believed was possible in terms of the level of success I deserve. It may sound strange but I was sabotaging myself to stay in my comfort zone. With these kinds of profits and a renewed vision for myself and my business, I can change my life and the lives of my employees forever–both exhilarating and scary!”

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.

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.

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.

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 Ramer

Owner, Ramco Supply

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.

Honestly I’m not sure where we would be without the great help we received from Inspire over the last year and a half, but I KNOW it wouldn’t be nearly as enjoyable.

Thanks for the great help to Roger and the Inspire team.

“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 Crouse

COO, Fortville Feeders, Inc

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 advise and council.

I strongly recommend Inspire to small businesses dealing with the many challenges of running a business with limited resources.
