The Top Seven Benefits Business Owners can expect to achieve when working with ActionCOACH Campus, Eastern Iowa's only Certified Business Coaching Firm.




Local personal 1:1 business coaching offers a uniquely tailored and immersive experience that digital platforms like Zoom can't fully replicate.

The face-to-face interaction fosters a deeper connection between coach and client, allowing for nuanced communication and a more personalized approach.

This setting enables coaches to pick up on non-verbal cues and adjust their coaching style in real-time, ensuring that advice and strategies are fully understood and resonate on a personal level.

The immediacy of in-person meetings also encourages spontaneous questions and discussions, leading to richer, more engaging learning experiences.

Moreover, local coaching provides the added benefit of a coach who has insight into the specific challenges and opportunities within the client's geographical market.

This local understanding can be invaluable in tailoring strategies that are not only theoretically sound but also practically applicable in the client's business environment.

Networking opportunities, local market insights, and the possibility of on-site business assessments further enhance the effectiveness of personal 1:1 coaching, making it a powerful tool for entrepreneurs looking to make a significant impact in their community.




Upon the completion and review of the Business Diagnostic, a determination is made if Business Coaching would be a good fit. After all, there will be accountability and homework assigned in between coaching sessions.

Each ActionCOACH Campus client is presented with a Red, Leather Bound Binder complete with their name embossed in Gold Foil on the cover.

Inside, the binder includes every step of the 99 Rabbit Holes of Running a Successful Business© as well as a copy of the unique ActionCOACH Six Steps Process© (see below).

Available in both English and Spanish editions.

This workbook provides the framework for educating and demonstrating how we create a sustainable business model designed to provide generational wealth.




Each business owner is set up with a personalized and private Online ActionCOACH Campus Portal to track work progress, whiteboard ideas, review shared materials, and provide ongoing support in between coaching sessions.




With an ever-changing landscape of digital tools to choose from, ActionCOACH Campus clients enjoy the benefit of working with a local coach who understands how to navigate and customize various digital platforms including Trello©, Stripe©, CoachAccountable©, ClickUp©, and GHL©.




A total of six business books, written by our Head Coach Lee Iben, each book (available here on AMAZON) is broken into 52 unique, bite-sized nuggets or chapters.

Purchased individually, the collection would cost $139.65 on Amazon. ActionCOACH Campus clients receive a complete set at NO ADDITIONAL COST.



Our GrowthCLUB Network

Every three months ActionCOACH Campus unites all local clients together in a private location for a full morning of learning, sharing and planning for the next 90 days ahead.

These planning sessions, called GrowthCLUB, have been an anticipated highlight of the ActionCOACH Campus coaching platform since we started the program in 2020.

What Our Clients Have to Say

ActionCOACH Campus and Lee are an Integral Part of My Team...

“A little over year ago I was introduced to Lee Iben with ActionCOACH Campus.

He set up a brief live zoom interview with me and after a few questions I knew he was someone I wanted on my team but more importantly needed.

Just like professional athletes have a head coach, many professional athletes also have life coaches, personal training coaches, personal growth coaches, the list goes on and on.

Many business owners think they have to have all the answers, make all the decisions or put all the fires out. Personally, I did not and do not have all the answers, I do however have burning desire to build a business that will outlive me, and I am getting better at empowering the people on my team through the principles of ActionCOACH™.

So, now a year plus later ActionCOACH Campus and Lee are an integral part of my team here at Egli Landscapes coaching us through the 99 Rabbit Holes of business.

Lee has aided in my discovery and understanding that building a business with really good systems and processes will allow you to better enjoy being an owner/entrepreneur.”

-Tim Egli, Egli Landscapes

An Essential Asset to Our Business...

“Lee has been an essential asset to our business. He has guided us in a direction that allows us to work ON our business and less IN our business allowing us to grow and actually have a sellable business.”

-Patty Elliott, Elliott Realty Group

Helped Me with the “Nuts and Bolts” of the Business...

“I have appreciated Lee’s forthright advice and expertise in building my practice. He has helped me with the “nuts and bolts” of the business side of building a concierge medical practice.”

Dr. R. Larew, Larew Internal Medicine

Thanks Lee!

“I’d recommend all small businesses take advantage of his services, but most especially healthcare businesses, where often times the owners are better practitioners than business people......Thanks Lee!”

-Laura Christensen, Acupuncture of Iowa

Expertise as a Certified Business Coach...

Your dental school’s promise was to prepare you to diagnose and treat to a level that you could pass boards and qualify for licensure to practice. Sadly, there is less than minimal time in the dental school experience to also prepare you to successfully, profitably, be a dental practice owner/partner.

What can you do now?

Enter Lee Iben, whose expertise as a Certified Business Coach and more than 20 years of hands-on business experience in dental practices.

My Company has Pivoted 180 Degrees...

“Lee brings a tremendous business background and real world experience to his coaching. Working together, I have been able to change the customer service direction in my company.

As a business owner, I felt like the only person experiencing certain problems. Lee provided the space to talk through my concerns. His gentle guidance allowed me to make the proper decisions for the company on my timeline.

My company has pivoted 180 degrees.

Thanks to Lee and Action Coach Campus, I can say that I am looking forward to the future in the agricultural service industry.”

Rachel Rinner, Knee Deep Solutions

ActionCOACH Campus curriculum and tools are invaluable...

"ActionCOACH Campus curriculum and tools are invaluable. My selling point was not the material but my coach Lee Iben. Seeing his passion for business and his mindset translate to his work and approach to life made me want to become a coach and try to replicate the impact he is making in our community. Gracias!”
