These rankings reflected the amounts banked by coaches during November.
Placed at 61st position worldwide, Maria Vieira is the number one Business Coach in Portugal.
Based out of her office in Lisbon, she has been helping the owners of small-and-medium sized businesses in the key areas of time, team, money and marketing.
“Maria is an absolutely amazing Business Coach and is setting a fine example in the ActionCOACH community in Portugal,” founder and CEO of ActionCOACH Brad Sugars said.
Vieira feels homered but pressured to maintain her position and stay on top.
“It feels wonderful to find myself in the ‘Top 100 coaches’ list, and I’m really doing my best to stay there,” she said. “I try to help business owners as much as I can with rookie coaches in Portugal. We have a great team of coaches in our country and that helps me raise the standards to a great extent. I have great support from my ML and his team.”
Describing 2008 as a great year, Vieira has a slightly different plan for 2009. Having most recently gained certification as an Executive Coach, Vieira plans on penetrating the corporate world.
“In 2009, we will be carrying out several initiatives and strategies to get into the corporate world, like presentations in universities and business associations with free seminars, networking and partnerships – to name a few,” she said. “We feel the financial situation could be good for us and we are targeting businesses, which need to do more with less to thrive in 2009.”
The business coaching industry is the second fastest growing business categories worldwide, and ActionCOACH is the number one business and executive coaching firm in the world.
