Action Business Coaching with Mark Carn

In just over six months under Action Coach Mark Carn, DBG Technologies has made significant improvements in the Business over many areas.

The main things I have gained from Mark and the Coaching Program has been Mindset, Business and Financial Mastery, tracking Leads and Conversions, Strategic Business planning and ideas, Personal Growth, Goal Setting and understanding our marketing avenues.

Major achievements and wins include:-

  • The Business has grown and expanded interstate;
  • Expanded from two Team Members to five;
  • Conversion tracking and understanding our customers;
  • Technology upgrade including a CRM system;
  • Putting Systems into place;
  • Improved Time Management and using Time better;
  • Set up a passive income stream.

We conducted a SWOT Analysis at commencement and have been able to make better use of our Strengths and taken advantages of the Opportunities which have arisen, and worked to overcome Weaknesses.

Mark has provided a number of learning materials including books and CD’s which have been hugely beneficial in growing my knowledge and increasing my mindset and thinking.

We have attended a number of Workshops including Financial Mastery, Time Management, Leadership and the Business Growth Days etc. I have also been a member of the Business Breakfast networking Club Profit Club, which has resulted in new Business. The workshops have provided benefit in Networking, Mindset, Educations & Ideas, Business Strategies, Motivation and Personal Growth.

Just to let you know this quarter has been our biggest quarter ever and December so far (which is usually our worst month every financial year) has also been our biggest month ever!!!

 All the various training, reading and guidance has helped us do this so thank you for all the work you have done with us.

 The Business Coaching Program has helped us grow and strengthen our Business to ensure it thrives and is around for many years to come. I rate the Action Coaching Program and our Coach as 10 out of 10.

Thanks Mark,

I have been a client of Mark Carn from Action Coach for over a year now and in that time, I have learnt a tremendous amount about who I am and who I can be, my mindset, how to improve my business without me dong all the work, time management, financial mastery, leverage, systems and marketing.

I have rediscovered (and ramped up) the passion I had when I first started my business and now have real tangible goals for my business and life in general and the tools needed to achieve them.

You probably have heard the saying “if it’s to be, it’s up to me” which is very true but everyone in business should have a business coach like Mark to help them get there.

Thanks Mark for Business Coaching and your patience and support. The Business and myself are so much better off after only one year.

The Business revenues and margins have grown, financial management implemented, time management and productivity has improved, systems have been set up to monitor progress and a number of new marketing strategies have been implemented and developed into a Marketing Plan. We also now measure a number of key items, including weekly revenues, conversions, average dollar sale and number of transactions.

I have read and listened to a number of books and CD’s, attended Workshops and the Business Breakfast. All these have greatly increased my Business education, knowledge, mindset, confidence and motivation.

I have also picked up new Business from the various Workshops and networking Events.

I would rate yourself and the Coaching Program as 10 out 10 and the future looks very bright for my Business.

I have been working with Mark Carn from Action Business Coaching for several months now. At first I thought, I don’t need a Business Coach, what good could he do for me??? How can someone who is not in my industry help me and my business??

But after just the first few meetings with Mark my mindset and enthusiasm changed. He made me aware of how many ideas, strategies, systems and improvements I was missing out on, which I now implement in the day to day running of my business.

The Benefits we have gained already include Budgeting, Financial management, Improving Average Dollar Sale, Setting sales targets, Mindset, Goal setting, Planning, Team improvements, Recording financial Key Performance Indicators, Improving customer service and new marketing ideas. All of which are very important for my business.

Business Coaching is a small investment in relation to the many benefits and rewards for the long term. In twelve months, our average $ sale is up $9, number of customers up 500 per quarter, and revenues up more than $3,000 per week. This equates to extra revenues of over $150,000 in one year, up over 50%. My five year goals have been achieved in one year, and I am now working less time.  

I urge all Business Owners to get assistance with a Business Coach, it will change your life for the better.

Just by working on Job Costings, Work productivity and Financial Mastery, Mark from Action Coach, has within 4 months assisted us to improve our profitability by between $180,000 to $200,000 per year. This makes Business Coaching a great Investment.



Hi Mark,

I would like to provide some comments on Business Coaching.Mark and Phil

At first I was sceptical about taking on a Business Coach, having started my business and seen it grow into a relatively profitable organisation, I thought I knew it all.

Then I signed on with a Business Coach and reality struck, I realised that even though I had a number of basic applications covered, I was left wanting on most things.

Today I have been with Action Business Coaching for almost 2 years. People that know me ask whether it has helped my business, I tell them that in the first year my profits were up by 48% and are heading for a further 32% as we move into the second year, so you be the judge.

I would like to thank you personally for your positive outlook on life and business, it has been a real inspiration to us all.




Hi Mark

Thanks for the Coaching and assistance in helping me grow my Business.

My Business has improved in marketing, strategic planning, goal setting, and implementation of systems. I am now more confident, have improved my self development, make better use of my time and have stronger belief in the success of my Business.

Some of the main things I have gained from the Coaching Program include how to implement systems and put into place properly, better reporting, involving my Team members further and more positive thinking.

I rate highly the effectiveness of the Coaching Program and my Coach.

By undertaking the Program, I have improved my management and look forward to the future with renewed enthusiasm and confidence.

Dear Mark,

Thanks for working with us in our business. We have found the experience to be extremely rewarding in both our professional and personal lives. Each week we are challenged and encouraged to strive to meet our goal, which, excitingly, we are achieving.

Prior to engaging your services we had a vision for our business but no clarity on how to achieve it or make it a reality. We now have goals, and the ability to make our vision a reality. We have improved our business knowledge, created systems that work and we are both focused on important tasks and finally using our time more productively.

We have entered into a new joint venture business that enhances our own vision which we may not have done without the confidence and knowledge gained from our ACTION Business coach. We are both more motivated and excited about our business, and our future, as a result of working with you.

Thanks again Mark for your help and belief to date.

Since I’ve met Mark my whole mindset towards business and life has changed dramatically. I went into my business with guns blazing and no written plan what so ever. My thought was you have to work hard in your business.

Once Mark suggested a few things I soon come to realize that you have to work hard, real hard, on yourself to work ON your business. The best thing I ever did was start reading more and more and I highly recommend you listen to as many cd’s as you can.

Mark has opened my eyes and my mind towards business and life.

The Coaching Program has made a substantial difference in many areas. The Business is now far more profitable.

Worth much more than the investment involved.

Mark, I would like to thank you for your wonderful mentoring and for your assistance in helping me develop my Business.

My Business and I have made improvements in Marketing, General Business knowledge, Human Resource management, Personal growth, Personal productivity, System building and I now have  more Confidence and Belief.

Some of the most important things I have gained include book keeping skills, budgeting and test & measuring of my marketing strategies.

Before commencing the program, I lacked many of the skills and knowledge required to run a Business successfully. I now have far more control and better direction.

I would value both the effectiveness of the Coaching Program and Mark as my Coach, as 9 out of 10, which I rate very highly. I have been extremely pleased with all that I have learnt from Mark and through the reading material that I have received. I feel very positive about the success of my Business now and in the future.

I thank Mark my Coach, very much for everything he has assisted me with my Business, it has been a fantastic experience.

We used Mark Carn of Action Coach as our Business Coach for a year and a half. We have found this to be very beneficial. The Alignment Report and Action Plan have given us a Plan for our Business and sets out our goals and how to achieve them. It lists what steps we need to take to get our business to where we want it.

The weekly Coaching Sessions have made us accountable and given us new ideas and strategies to improve our business. To have someone outside our Industry has been invaluable for ideas and to think outside the square.

We made financial benefits, which have easily out weighed the investment which we made. In the financial year for 05/06, we experienced fantastic increases in income of $118,344 or 15.7% over the previous year and net profit of over 30%. For March 06, our income increased by 42% (nearly our best month ever) and our net profit by a similar amount. All this in a very competitive environment.


We are making more money, our Team is making a much larger contribution to our Business, and we now have systems in place which means we dont always have to be working in the Business. Our life now is much more balanced.

We would recommend a Business Coach for any business which wants to grow, make more money, be successful and achieve their goals.
