What our clients are saying about EDGE for Business...

  • Joel Eschenbach

    "Before I joined EDGE, our business lacked direction. We were slowly growing, but my focus as the managing partner was all over the place. I didn't have a clear idea of where our business was headed. With the help of my EDGE coach and the other business owners in the group, I learned to set attainable, strategic goals. But more importantly, I had the accountability to actually accomplish them.

    Since joining EDGE, we've had a 60% increase in profits! If you're willing to put the time in, an EDGE group will take your business to the next level."

  • Paul Miller

    "I have been with the Edge Group calls for about 10 months now. It has definitely helped me deal with business issues. When I present challenges to the rest of the group I usually get some ideas that I haven’t thought of . Dave and Ron are skilled at directing us to face our problems and getting them resolved. My focus has majorly changed to build my employees and the employees will build the business. By focusing on a challenge every week and having a support group to help me resolve it, my business stress has gone way down. Now I sometimes have a hard time coming up with a challenge to resolve.

    Since being on the weekly call Dave and Ron have helped me change my focus from solving problems to building up employees. When you build up and empower your employees they will take care of your business. Dave and Ron are very skilled at helping me dissect my challenges to pinpoint where changes are needed. Being on the call with fellow business owners each sharing their challenges gets you thinking in new ways about your own issues. If you have business or employee problems I would definitely recommend this program."
