CEO, Master Coach & Presenter

Dave discovered his passion for Business Coaching when he experienced the challenges of running a business alone. He is excited when business owners choose to objectively look at their business, make the hard and scary decisions, and most importantly, take the necessary action to follow through.

Dave spent 10 years as a Project Manager in the circuit board manufacturing business from quoting, purchasing, production and delivery schedules, and job costing. He uses all of these tools to help business owners make better decisions so they can grow exponentially.

His superpower lies in the one critical ingredient that often gets overlooked—having a complete understanding of the numbers that drive your business: budgets, cash-flow forecast, and cost-analysis. Like a mad-scientist with formulas, Dave has the ability to create straightforward spreadsheets to give business owners the financial story that will continue to drive them forward.

Dave is a sought after coach, presenter, and trainer. He has helped hundreds of confident, intelligent, and ambitious business owners successfully improve their businesses. He continues to be in the Top 100 Coaches Worldwide.

Dave enjoys doing remodeling projects around the house, watching movies with his family, and spending time outdoors in the summer, as well as, watching an occasional game or two.

Firm Partner, Senior Coach & Presenter

Tracy’s passion originates from 15 years in the advertising and printing industries. Her creative mind and her eye for design are just a couple of the reasons why marketing is one of her biggest strengths.

Tracy has a unique connection with business owners that stems from her own personal journey; she once was a business owner trying to do it all herself. She actually discovered her passion for business coaching as an ActionCOACH client. She understands what it’s like to be a business owner with, and without, a coach.

Tracy started working with ActionCOACH MN in 2008, and in 2010, she became a certified Business Coach. Her purpose is to help business owners achieve the life goals they went into business for in the first place.

Tracy understands a decision by itself changes nothing, rather, the plan of execution to do something different does – this is why she is 100% committed to helping business owners create the systems that are necessary to enable consistent and predictable business results. She understands the importance of growth through education, implementation, and accountability.

Tracy enjoys the outdoors, well, in the summer, anyway. She enjoys gardening, hiking, and biking with her family. During the winter months she enjoys creating amazing meals, getting together with friends, and traveling to warmer climates.

Client Care Specialist

Carmen has been with the ActionCOACH team since 2009.

Organizes and manages all client workshops and events. With an attention to detail, she is responsible for managing these tasks from inception to completion.

Perfectionist at heart, yet understands (sometimes) a desire for progression is more easily attained. Uncommon, by most standards, in her approach to life; she hardly follows the crowd yet loves the company. A dissection of her brain would most likely resemble the inside of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory — there’s always something being created. She believes that listening is an art and notes should be taken in color.

Highly motivated by the vision of what businesses will become when they engage with ActionCOACH. She recognizes the freedom, focus, self-awareness, and positive change of these business owners through forward movement.

Always moving by being active in running and workouts. Her eyes want to see new things and legs to hike new territory. Her adventure-map continues to have pins added to new places. Carmen is married to her husband, Mike, for 27 years with one daughter and son in-law who gave them a granddaughter (current family favorite), a son studying at NDSU, and their youngest studying at UMD.

Financial Specialist

Bobbi is the Financial Specialist for ActionCOACH MN.

She is the first face you see walking through our office doors (Thank God, right?!)

Bobbi develops and maintains budgets and tracking data for the firm, along with every other spreadsheet the firm operates on. If we need to quantify a task, Bobbi will create an accurate measurement for it. It’s pure genius — and she doesn’t even wear a pocket protector — but she has lots of colored sharpies.

Bobbi holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in business administration and can do Quickbooks with her eyes closed. In her young age, she’s grown through the education received from ActionCOACH and her sharp co-workers. At this point, she can coach and stretch anyone out of their comfort zone.

Watch out because this girl knows how to hunt deer and reel in a trophy bass (or walleye), which is one of the reasons she caught the eye of her husband. Her cricut machine fulfills her creative side, her meal preps fulfills her obsessive organizational side, and her friends, family, and miniature Yorkie fulfill her fuzzy and fun side.
