The Growth Coach’s 2019 Scholarship Winner

The Growth Coach is pleased to announce the winner of the company’s first national scholarship – Sabrina Chiu, who attends the University of Florida. The $1,000 scholarship was open to any student pursuing a 2- or 4-year degree at an accredited college or university.

The essay topic for The Growth Coach scholarship was: Owning a Growth Coach Franchise means utilizing a proven system and supporting the success of local business owners. After working with our Growth Coaches, many clients view them not just as partners, but as role models. Tell us about your definition of a good role model and speak on a time someone's guidance helped you succeed.

“Growth Coach helps business owners and leaders push forward by feeding their dreams and starving their fears. Our Growth Coaches often find their clients right when they need to make changes that will promote growth and success. Sabrina Chiu’s winning essay describes this same journey in a mentor that saw a need for help and guided her through some key adjustments that led to confidence in herself and ultimately led to the success she was looking for in landing a desirable internship,” Growth Coach President Lisa Hudson said. “We applaud her persistence and ability to see the change within herself can happen with a guide that also believes in you and your abilities. Congratulations, Sabrina!”

The Growth Coach scholarship is one of five scholarships offered by Strategic Franchising Systems, Inc. this year. Strategic Franchising Systems, the overarching company for The Growth Coach, Caring Transitions, Fresh Coat Painters, TruBlue Total House Care and Pet Wants, has been creating and providing franchise business models to help people make their dreams come true for more than 30 years.
