I would highly recommend David's business coaching service for anyone looking to grow their business!
I had the opportunity to attend a seminar hosted by David in the beginning of the year. Two minutes after the seminar, I started writing a business plan. David is a great motivational speaker and a catalyst for business. We recently had David on our radio show and he was a terrific guest. I would highly recommend David's business coaching service for anyone looking to grow their business!

...without David and his coaching, my company would still be struggling instead of flourishing. Thank you for everything.
My company has been working with David Levine since the summer of 2004. When I first started with David, I was my only employee. I was doing every duty from scheduling and programming to all the duties that an office manager does. I was working endless hours and my business was growing, however at a slow pace. David coached me on creating structures that helped me focus on main tasks instead of trying to handle every little detail and letting the important tasks fall behind schedule. When I started with David, my net income was in the negative range. As of this year, Fun Fitness's profit is at a positive 29% and I have a staff of 9 people including an office manager. The impact that David has had is tremendous. His commitment towards my company and building it with me shows with his coaching. He does not force you to take action, however his coaching and manner allows you to learn at your own pace and make your mistakes. He has always been there for the smallest question and a gentle, yet assertive, nudge towards the right direction. In my opinion, without David and his coaching, my company would still be struggling instead of flourishing. Thank you David. Thank you for everything.

I really appreciate the input you provide, which ranges from gentle chiding when necessary to cheerleading when appropriate. You have also been an excellent resource for both contacts and documents as needed.
We recently discuss the value of testimonials from clients as a great way to show prospective clients how we are perceived by those already working with us. In light of that, I am pleased to provide one for you as one of your clients. Since November 2004 you have helped me work on my business instead of merely in it. This process has in many ways been difficult; since planning , analyzing and changing are not on the path of least resistance. The path you are leading me on is one of self discovery combined with a "Where do you want to be?" viewpoint, which is neither easy nor short term. I really appreciate the input you provide, which ranges from gentle chiding when necessary to cheerleading when appropriate. You have also been an excellent resource for both contacts and documents as needed.

We heartily recommend [David Levine] to every business owner who wants to succeed in their endeavors.
We have been an automotive entity for 30 years and have reached a point where we have to think about transition; stepping aside and allowing others to operate the business. We did not realize that all this knowledge that we had accumulated was in our heads and not written down in any way that our successors could review and consult for information. We attended a business seminar and met David Levine who was presenting on marketing, advertising, and business strategies. We were immediately impressed with his enthusiasm, knowledge, and practical approach to running and monitoring a business. He was our man! We immediately signed up with David and the past year has been nothing but sensational in revamping our business systems. His ability to channel our efforts in a clear, concise direction, and achieve remarkable results, which has enabled us to realize our goal: to have our business systemized so that it can run on its own, without stress, on a steady upward track. By having David on board, he has become our sounding board, our chief business advisor, and a good friend. We heartily recommend Action International, and particularly David Levine, to every business owner who wants to succeed in their endeavors.
In just a few months I'm seeing employees and customers excited about what we do and sales are up over 15% -- that makes me excited!
I'm a third generation baker and president of our 51-year-old family business. After hearing David speak at a local Chamber meeting, I was impressed with his knowledge of the real world of business. David is my coach and "sounding board." In just a few months I'm seeing employees and customers excited about what we do and sales are up over 15% -- that makes me excited! The passion is back thanks to David.

With David's vast business experience and contacts...I am able to call upon him frequently to provide insight and to help organize my thought process.
Today, with changes in business world happening at each turn, the need to be able to adjust and react is even more important. As a sole owner, even with a business of my size and depth, the need to be able to discuss and bounce ideas or concerns off of a third party is extremely important. That is where David comes in. With David's vast business experiences, and contacts through his organization with other consultants, I am able to call upon him frequently to provide insight and to help organize my thought process. Unlike other "consultants" that I have used over the years, David does not answer the question, but rather assists me in developing a solution, and an implementation methodology.
