CHAMPLIN, MN—March 7, 2018—ActionCOACH MN brought home three client awards at the 2018 Business Excellence Awards at The Hotel del Coronado, San Diego, California on February 19, 2018.  The winners included, Best Manufacturer, AST Sports; Best Overall Company, Dedicated Networks, Inc. and Best Service Based Company Over 10 Employees, Smith, Paulson, O’Donnell, & Erickson. 


The Business Excellence Awards honors the best results in businesses from North America and showcases exceptional results for business owners, entrepreneurs, their teams, and their companies.  The gala included 16 award categories with more than 500 applicants.  ActionCOACH MN had 18 finalists in multiple categories and brought a total of 60 business owners, team members, and spouses to the event.       


David and Tracy Ford, owners of ActionCOACH MN, are building an established path for business owners and their teams to excel. 


“Everyone wants their business to be successful.  We have to be careful of the evil nemesis called ‘complacency’; which happens slowly, and we don’t even realize we’re in it,” said Dave.  “We learn to play it safe and get comfortable.  That’s why we are so excited about our clients who are hungry to learn and see a greater potential in their team and business, so they can positively impact their family and community.” 


“We believe in the spirit of growth, challenge, and adventure.  We are blessed to be connected to business owners who believe in that same spirit and decide to do something different,” said Tracy.  “When you don’t make a decision, time will make it for you.  Once you make a decision, another decision is presented, then another, then another.  Each decision you make gets you closer to where you want to be in business and in life.  We are grateful for our clients who run towards decisions, not away from them.  This is why we are the most client-award winning firm in North America.” 


ActionCOACH Founder and Chairman, Brad Sugars, presented the clients with their awards.


“You get one shot at life, why not do it big.” said Sugars.  “Get good people in your life to help push and guide you.  Dave, Tracy, and their team, is the firm to turn to in the Twin Cities.  They will not only help you with your goals, but the learning that must come alongside it.  There’s a reason why their clients are exceling.”   

In addition to the awards ceremony, the Business Excellence Forum featured speakers in the world of business, including Brad Sugars, first woman Blackhawk pilot Elizabeth McCormick, former FBI hostage negotiator Chris Voss, and New York Times best-selling author and former publisher of SUCCESS magazine Darren Hardy.
