Client Love


Tiffany Nolan - I.E. Insurance

When I first met Frederick Geiger of onCOREventures through my BNI Chapter I didn’t really understand coaching. Frederick explained coaching in a way that I understood. And I learned a way to professionally develop myself at a pace specific to my individual needs and goals. I started with an online assessment. Now, we are two years and a couple of months down this road together. My sessions are strategic marketing business planning and experience discussions that we evaluate to further develop my skills and capabilities.

Over the last two years with Frederick and onCoreventures, I’m pursuing my dream. I am a small business owner in Western Pennsylvania. And I get to follow my passion for insurance by opening my own independent insurance brokerage, i.e.  Insurance, LLC. I wouldn’t have gotten here without Frederick and am forever indebted to him for sharing his passion and expertise. This has given me the confidence and knowledge to take this step. I’m excited to see the direction my coaching takes as my adventure begins.

Joshua Koach - Boo's Bug Stoppers

Leaving corporate America to start my own business has been a dream come true.  However, as many entrepreneurs know, running a small business is challenging on many levels.  While growing pains are natural to any successful business, managing them properly is crucial to its continued success or failure. Frederick first helped me clearly identify my personal strengths and weaknesses. This helped me to maximize my potential. And allowed me to remove the mental blocks that held me back. I have now been working with Frederick for over 2 years and he has helped me with a number of things. He has helped me with staffing issues and developing an affordable and effective marketing plan. Not to mention he helped me launch a new business as well. Frederick has helped me with these business initiatives. However, working with him has reduced my stress level and helped me establish a work/life balance. One I so desperately needed. I can’t thank Frederick enough for the knowledge and expertise he brings to the table.
