Marathon Runner Newest Entry in ActionCOACH Canada

Burlington, ON- Just like an athlete needs a coach to push them to their limits, so to do business owners. And to Dan Holstein - who happens to be both - joining the ActionCOACH Canada team was the best decision he ever made.

A former IT consultant, Dan hired an ActionCOACH to assist him with restructuring his business. He was so impressed with their skills that he realized he wanted to coach alongside them and help other business owners strike the life and work balance.

“I sold my company to another IT firm and after the transition period, I knew I wanted to become an ActionCOACH.  My goal is to be a source of positive change for local business owners and help them improve their businesses to increase their profits, while at the same time working fewer hours. It’s about lifestyle – the business really should serve the owner and not the other way around,” says Holstein.

Dan lives in Beamsville, Ontario with his wife Jennifer and two young children. When he’s not helping his clients grow their businesses, he enjoys many outdoor activities with his family such as hiking, biking, canoeing and all-season camping. Dan is also an avid runner competing in several marathons, half-marathons, and other long distance races each year.

A member of the Burlington Chamber of Commerce and President of the BNI Corporate Executive Network, Dan can often be found attending or running local networking events in the Burlington community. Coming up this June, Dan and two of his clients will be cycling over 200kms from Toronto to Niagara Falls, in support of the Ride To Conquer Cancer. Dan and his team have a goal of raising $10,000 for cancer research.

“As a coach, I make sure I have the time to give back to the community, and this is an initiative that, along with my teammates and riding partners, I am proud to support,” says Holstein.
