I was referred to Bob Paden through a mutual client, and hired him to help engineer a second iteration of my law practice. Bob brought tools and structure to the endeavor, guiding me through the process of conceptualizing the business that I want to own, and then mapping the steps required to create it. His guidance has been fundamental to the confidence I now possess as a business owner. I know that I will reach my goals by working my plan, and if I don’t, I can count on Bob’s guidance to help retool my plan.

Bob Paden has recently been coaching an associate of mine, and it has been a fantastic transformation to witness. Bob has helped him focus and strategize about selling his services and working smarter, not harder. And it’s already paying dividends.

So much so that I mentioned to Bob the other day that he and his coaching reminded me of that old commercial – I can’t remember the company, but the gist was they “didn’t make the thing, they made the thing better.” And, that’s Bob – his coaching approach helps make people and companies better.

I also mentioned that I was less skeptical about business coaching than before meeting Bob and observing his methods. Bravo, Bob.

Bob Paden is like the Wizard of Oz. He’s helped infuse a new way of thinking, added invaluable insights to the heart of my business, and inspired the courage to move forward with exciting new initiatives. Given that I’ve owned my business for 38+ years, that’s an incredible outcome!

Amazing job today on the Webinar! What an awesome way to highlight your skillset – I took a lot away and thought it was so well prepared and actually had actionable items to it. I watched it on YouTube and I’ve heard many similar topics lately but this is the best content I’ve seen yet – thanks for taking the time!

I really enjoyed the workshop! Bob Paden did a great job getting us to think about working on our business and not in it.

“Personal guidance” is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Bob Paden. His depth of knowledge and experience in business and project management was a tremendous asset.

He would be a true asset in helping any organization that is growing/dealing with change, or looking to work through key decisions, and he comes with my absolute highest recommendation.

Lindsay Farley

Bob connects the Operations and Marketing functions that allowed me to meet my business goals. He invests more than just time but also his whole heart into helping my business grow.
I’m so glad I talked to you today….

if not, I would have done something really stupid….

Gary Fleener
Thought provoking and eye opening are phrases that come to mind when I think about Bob ….we are now beginning 2018 with more confidence and less stress. Bob would be a true asset to any business looking to clear the clutter, gain clarity of purpose and make some small changes that have large impact to the top and bottom line.
Bob Markley
President - 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing
Bob has been invaluable over the last 2+ years. Small business owners, if you don’t have a “guy,” you need to call Bob. Great sounding board as he has “been there.”

We would not be building one of the country’s foremost metal additive shops without the advice and guidance of Bob, and I am personally beyond grateful.

From a Recent Business Growth Workshop

Talking with other business owners in a directed fashion – not just networking – was extremely valuable. Learning from their experiences while being guided by Bob was very worthwhile. I’ve come away with a defined goal to work towards in the next 90 days. I like that the workshop helped me think critically about my business.
Bob is very professional and sincere in their approach to drive improvement in the accountability of business leaders and owners.
To understand more how and why to be a CEO of our business. If you want a business to be sellable, you need your business to run itself when you are not present.
It reinforced that we are all stuck in some way and that there are avenues to learning how to shift thinking and actions to effect change.
I loved creating the “what not to do” list. I loved the structure of the class and your confidence and effectiveness. I liked how you drew out participants so we got to know each other.
Amazing session! Really enjoyed connecting with our group and hearing about the common struggles that many business owners face.
This was a great experience! Bob is friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about helping business owners evaluate where they are at, and where they want to be. The program seems very focused and easily adaptable regardless of what type of business you have. I am confident that their coaching would help anyone to gain a fresh perspective on their business and how to increase sales, as well as happiness and satisfaction on a daily basis.
With Bob, you don’t feel like you’re alone on your journey to success. Genuine, strategic, and resourceful in their approach to want to help grow your business from the ground up or to take it to the next level. Overall, The Growth Coach is great experience that I am already seeing results from!

It was a very warm and welcoming reception. Everything was taken care of and supplied. There was no wasted time or useless information. Bob was very professional and prepared.
It really made me think about where I want to be and refine my vision.
I need to add staff so I can work on my business.
