The Growth Coach Franchise Opens in NKY

Being a small business owner can be tough. Overcoming the challenges of the business world, often by yourself, while finding balance in your life is important, but making it a reality is a whole other situation. Aaron Hendershot is looking forward to helping business owners and company leaders build success while finding that balance with his new business, The Growth Coach of North Central Kentucky.

The Growth Coach is the largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops in the nation, but coaches also offer one-to-one coaching services, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and coaching for special projects as well as alternative financing, business valuation services, sales mapping and more. Clients include the owners of small- and medium-sized businesses, management teams, sales teams and self-employed professionals among others. Hendershot’s local franchise serves all of Northern Kentucky including Florence, Burlington, Edgewood, Fort Mitchell, Fort Wright, Covington and Newport down to Frankfort and Northern Lexington.

“I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was a teenager – I’ve always loved business – and I understand the challenges, successes and struggles small business owners are facing," said Hendershot. "I’ve been there. In the last few years I started working as a consultant, but I wanted to do something a little different and The Growth Coach was a perfect fit. My goal has always been to be a coach for other business people."

Hendershot is a disabled combat veteran with a degree in Business Management from the University of Oregon. His background is in business management, sales and marketing and he started his career in the energy industry, and recently, worked in business and financial consulting.

As a Growth Coach, Hendershot is also certified in The Strategic Mindset coaching process, which adheres to the standards, practices and policies that the International Coaching Federation has set forth in their Code of Professional Standards and Ethics.

“Owning this business, for me, is about helping people be successful while improving their quality of life. I want to see people achieve their goals and live better lives. That’s my passion and that’s the mission of The Growth Coach of North Central KY. I know, if I can help people fulfill their dreams, The Growth Coach will be successful,” Hendershot said.

The Growth Coach, founded in Cincinnati, sold its first franchise in 2003, but its leaders have a successful 20-year track record of helping business leaders find success and balance. Today the business and sales coaching franchise is in more than 100 markets worldwide. The Growth Coach was included in Bond’s “Top 100 Franchises” and recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500” and “Best of the Best,” in USA Today as one of the “Top 50 Franchises for Veterans” and “50 Top Franchises for Minorities” and has been featured on FOX, CBS and NBC. The company’s Strategic Mindset Process is so effective that it comes with a money-back guarantee.

Outside of work, Hendershot and his wife Reema are heavily involved in the NKY Hates Heroin campaign where they volunteer to help and support those in rehab.
