This is a complete waste a business owner's time and money. The owner for the business is a soft-shoe salesman who takes others' money for "growing their business" through a messianic-like introduction program, then removes resources (such as lists of members) from the "Team" concept. He then stops providing services to those already enrolled. A waste of $850 per year, and more if you fall for the "individual" coaching.  Stay VERY far away if approached by this group. Provisors or BNI are much better bets for small business growth. (Hide)

My Positive Experiences with ProGrowth Premiere

AUTHOR: Judy Brady - ()

 I have been a member of a ProGrowth Premier Group for a year and a half.    As a owner and manager of a small business in the home and health care field, I have benefitted from the insights I have gained in  developing my business and bringing it to the next level using the techniques that the program teaches.  I have been able to build upon the concept of why I am in this business , crystalize my goals and objectives in developing my business short and long term goals, and have learned how I can use my specific social style and strengths to further my business through relationship building.  The ProGrowth Team approach has been invaluable to me in my personal and business development and I truly value this program.  Our particular team has  bonded, we share our business achievements and problems,  and we have all learned so much from each other .  Ken has been an inspirational leader and he truly cares about helping us to use the ProGrowth system to help us "make our competition irrelevant".  As Ken has said..you will get as much out of this program as you put into it"!  A daily challenge, but definitely worth it!

ProGrowth Team

AUTHOR: BWood - ()

It is shocking to see someone that has not had a positive experience with the ProGrowth Team concept.  I have been involved for a few years now.  The results have been more than impressive to our company. The level of professionalism as well as the higher standard of networking and doing business is unquestionable.  The Founder is not only caring and insightful to the members, but goes the extra mile when needed.  I highly recommend anyone interested in the program, speak directly to the members for details of the results they have experienced.

Comment regarding the erroneous report against Progrowth

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

As someone who has been a member of ProGrowth for over four years, I found the comments that this reporting individual made both surprising and false.  I would guess that this individual never actually participated or interacted in a team or individual coaching.   The program, which I continue to participate in, has been extremely successful for my business and the services and back up from its owner continue to improve and expand.

Saddened by anonymous comment

AUTHOR: Stacie K - ()

I was saddened to read the comment made by anonymous.   The Progrowth concept is much more than an introduction program meant to provide a list of members for a fee.  

The program offers a proven process of relationship building by giving the members the skills and tools to identify and manage the contacts that will help build business. 

The process works.   I have been associated with the Progrowth program for many years.  As a CPA that prefers crunching numbers,  I am not a natural business builder.   The success of my practice is directly correlated to the knowledge, skills and relationships I have built by being a member.      

I highly disagree with the commenters experience.  If you work the program, it will work for you!

Progrowth Experience

AUTHOR: Sadie Bailey - ()

I just have to say that I have been connected to Progrowth and its owner for nearly three years now and these comments in no way represent my own experiences.
Progrowth has given me exactly what I hoped it would and more. My confidence, business connections and results have improved tremendously with my membership and I have have been confident recommending to others based on this.
Interestingly,  I moved on from the team plan to their Premier plan because of what it provided and the owner has recognized how this is true for most individuals and changes are being made so that the owner ensures members maximize their membership results. I can only assume the timing and connection with the owner did not have enough time to establish for this individual to see things this way.
Please know that the owner is an upstanding gentleman of the highest calibre, he would be devastated knowing this is someones opinion and experience based on his pride in what he provides and his business.

#8 REBUTTAL Owner of company

response to vicious attack on ProGrowth TEAM

AUTHOR: Ken Potalivo - ()

As the owner of this business, for the last 16 yearsI have dedicated myself to supporting service professionals with a specific process and structure designed to develop successful service businesses. We have decided to bring ProGrowth TEAM to a close  and have extended all current members so that they may continue to work together until their common expiration. We have two programs, the other is called ProGrowth premier and involves a coaching and peer group facilitation. This program has a separate site and membership. Who ever wrote this apparently feels they should have access to these members. We have never hidden anything from members. We are completely transparent. It is possible the writer wasted $850 because they did not do the specific work required. Our program does require members to take action. A member gets out of it what they put into it.

I am happy to address any concerns and can be reached through our site at www.progrowthteam.com
