We’re excited to announce the newest owner of FocalPoint Business Coaching: Geoff Zak. A passionate individual with years of experience in upper management and the nonprofit sector, Geoff is thrilled about the opportunity to harness his diverse skillset in a way that will benefit entrepreneurs who are looking to boost their businesses.
Who Is Geoff Zak?
Geoff has had an incredibly diverse background, working in performing arts as well as in business and the nonprofit sector. He found himself gravitating toward the creativity and problem-solving required to grow small to medium businesses. Geoff is particularly invested in fostering supportive and accountable relationships between owners and managers.
He has worked in upper management in the restaurant industry for 15 years with an additional 10 years of experience in the nonprofit sector. During that time, Geoff aided in workforce development initiatives, human services delivery to vulnerable populations, and targeted leadership and development for businesses.
Recently, Geoff is especially proud of his role in managing an innovative Pittsburgh restaurant incubator and food hall concept. The project gained national attention and helped to launch the careers of many aspiring local chefs and entrepreneurs.
Why Did Geoff Make a Career Change?
Geoff refers to the time during which he realigned his focus as the “bearded Al Gore” period of his career. He decided to take a hiatus in order to recharge and rethink the direction of his career. He spent time being present with his family and exploring what might come next.
Working with FranCoach helped Geoff build a greater understanding of what franchise ownership could look like. He realized that FocalPoint could provide the perfect ownership opportunity that aligned with Geoff’s diverse skill set and could help him make a positive impact in his community.
Why Will Geoff Make a Great Franchise Owner?
Geoff is excited to take control of his own career and invest his time and energy in a business that can make a difference in the lives of others. He is ready to leverage his diverse achievements into a career that will allow him and his coaching clients to thrive.
Geoff’s belief that every individual is an ordinary hero will make him an excellent business coach. He is dedicated to the idea that we are regular people who aspire to or are called upon to do extraordinary things. In his new role as an advisor and business coach, he is committed to partnering with his clients to embrace their business challenges. Geoff recognizes that the process of moving forward is a hero’s journey and deserves to be celebrated.
Why Did Geoff Choose FocalPoint?
FocalPoint Business Coaching harnesses the very best of founder Brian Tracy’s entrepreneurial and professional development learnings and strategies. FocalPoint coaches work with business owners, leaders, and their teams to effectively leverage these business-building tools, systems, and methodologies for maximum benefit.
In Geoff’s own words, here’s why he’s excited to join FocalPoint:
“With FocalPoint, I feel like I’ve found the tribe I’ve been searching for my entire career. The authentic collegiality of FocalPoint’s worldwide network of coaches has destroyed the barriers to everything I’ve come to expect from the corporate culture. The coaching methodology along with the robust curriculum developed in part by Brian Tracy sealed the deal.”
Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Geoff Zak and wishing him luck as a new owner of FocalPoint Business Coaching!
