“Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity. Bunny Besties is using this money to secure a brand new location for our nonprofit in Deephaven, MN. We are currently in transition without a home. We were in a temporary location and decided we needed a bigger space where we could grow and have amenities like a bathroom. We are going to use this money towards our security deposit and first month's rent when we sign our lease in May. This money is making our dream possible. It is really that big for our nonprofit. It is helping us home. What a true gift!”
Jennifer Smith, Bunny Besties
Spring 2022 Small Business Winner
The Accountable Coach Network was formed by Coach Connections, LLC to allow people hungry for growth in their personal finances a way to get matched with a qualified coach that has experience with their unique situation. They don't want clients to just survive, they want them to thrive. Using their proprietary tools and resources, clients move quickly past basic budget and debt reduction conversations to strategic coaching that results in sustainable growth.
Accountable Coaches Network realizes that how you work with money is as unique as your financial situation and goals. Instead of funneling you into a black & white set of steps or guidelines, they customize coaching to you. You define wealth and happiness (Refocus), the coach injects tools and accountability to help you follow through (Gain Control), then you create a long-term plan for success (Set a Plan).
“In the spirit of the Greater Good award, we will use the funds to pay it forward. The award will go toward scholarships for those ready for coaching, willing to do the work, but who need financial assistance to move forward with either 1:1 private coaching, group coaching and/or one of our money courses.”
Dave Jacobson, Accountable Coaches Network
