Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” -Mark Twain, Author



Derek O’Dwyer
ActionCOACH Business Coach

“…after 11 months of working with our ACTION Coach we have increased our sales by 497% and our team is working without us having to be there.”

“…In a year where the industry in general has seen downturns of about 10%, my business has seen a growth of 23%. I credit this to Derek O’Dwyer of Action International – simple ideas with follow through.”

“…in six months, I’ve gone from working over 60 hours per week to under 20, and my conversion rate’s up from 19% to 62%. I’ve now got some life back.”

“…Having worked with Derek for 18 months, we know the important of testing, we have had an increase of over 500% just from one ad campaign – and it is still running..”

“…one direct mail letter added €40,000 to our bottom line and working with ACTION has given me quality time to work on my business and spend time with my family.”

“…Having worked with Derek for about 9 months, I have had my most profitable year ever in the business, I am working more now on other projects that yield even great profits and I like all the clients that I work with.”

“…with ACTION we increased our database from 800 to over 1200 in just 3 months. We consistently get about 20 new and qualified people into our database each week.”

…and many, many more!
