Corporate Career Transforms Into Business Coaching Excellence

Updated: Mar 9

Corporate Career Transforms Into Business Coaching Excellence

We are excited to announce the newest owner of FocalPoint Business Coaching: John DePrince. A Pennsylvania resident, John is passionate about turning his corporate experience into effective coaching for fellow business owners. 

Who Is John DePrince?

With over two decades of an executive-level career in the legal field, John brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. He holds degrees in business administration and accounting, but he has gained the most from his on-the-job experience managing people, finances, operations, and more. Now, he is looking to begin the next chapter in his career and share his wisdom with others who are looking to grow and streamline their businesses. 

Why Did John Make a Career Change?

On the whole, John had enjoyed his career in the legal industry. He appreciates analyzing results and working with his staff to generate data-driven solutions, improving overall efficiency and quality. But ultimately, he found himself frustrated by corporate bureaucracy, meetings that could have been emails, and the stagnation that occurs in these environments.  

John came to FranCoach looking for an opportunity to work for himself and regain control of his professional life on his terms. As a veteran franchisee (years ago, John and his brother owned multiple units of Gold’s Gym), John understood the benefits of franchise ownership and its proven systems. While he initially thought he wanted to purchase another franchise in the fitness space, he discovered FocalPoint and never looked back

Why Will John Make a Great Franchise Owner?

FranCoach’s Lisa Rios helped John find FocalPoint, a brand that met all of his needs, goals, and expectations. Here’s what Lisa has to say about why John is sure to succeed: 

“First off, John is an experienced franchise owner – he has done it before and has done it well. He truly understands that it is all about the proven process, and he believes in the importance of respecting and following that process. That is the number one predictor of success for a franchise owner, and John embodies that commitment to the process.”

Why Did John 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. 

Throughout the Discovery Process, John worked with FocalPoint’s chief development officer, Scott Hartsfield. Scott helped John learn more about the brand’s unique offerings and opportunities – but what really sold John was his experience speaking to other owners during Validation Calls

During the Validation process, John spoke with another FocalPoint coach who worked solely with attorneys, evoking his background in the legal industry. John was able to see himself finding his own niche as a FocalPoint owner. After attending a virtual Meet the Team Day, he was excited to begin. 

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating John DePrince and wishing him luck as a new owner of FocalPoint.
