Global Accolades

Colin wrote his first book; Entrepreneur Success Recipe in 2012 that has sold 10,000s of units globally. Thereafter he wrote Stand Apart with Dan Kennedy and Power Principles with Brian Tracy. All of these became #1 Bestsellers on Amazon in all book categories. Gabi launched her book in 2017 called What The… I Did Not Sign Up For This! That became an instant success, as it’s the only book written by a person supporting an entrepreneur – Gabi’s book also became a #1 Amazon Bestseller.

They have also been part of the Evolutionary Business Council since 2011 where Colin has held board positions and is now on their Wisdom Council. In 2016 Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup For The Soul author, invited Colin to join his elite group of transformational leaders across the world. This was a huge accolade as there are only 4 Canadians in the group of approximately 120 – it’s 100% by invitation only!

Colin & Gabi have travelled the globe and between them have been to 85 countries. They have been blessed to spend time with Sir Richard Branson on his private island, Necker Island, where they learnt a ton about business and made some amazing lifelong connections.

    President of Lyons Landscaping

We have been on this journey with Colin for 12months now and it has been nothing but fantastic. As entrepreneurs we try to wear all the hats and sometimes get ourselves stuck in the weeds of our business which leads us to not seeing the road that we should take clearly all the time. Colin has been instrumental in helping me make moves that got me out of the weeds and helped get our team in alignment so we could grow to the full potential of the company. Myself and my team have been working tirelessly and not seeing the full potential of the results from the effort that we were putting in which is what lead us to hiring a Mentor. Working with Colin who has the “been there, done that” experience, who leads from the heart and truly cares about the business has moved the needle in our business in more directions than what we initially were looking for. I highly recommend working with Colin Sprake especially in the ProCEO Program.

Colin is huge heart, brilliant business acumen, deep wisdom and continuing clarity rolled into one package. I’ve been in business a long time. Yet, every time we work together, I take quantum leaps in knowing exactly what I need to do next, to take my business to the next level and I have the practical pieces to do it. The outcomes are the key: programs that flow together, easier outreach, increased revenue, and more satisfaction.
