Do you aspire to use your business as a force for good?

I’m Andy Dix, a Board-Certified Executive Business Coach.

Let’s talk about your growth plan!

Does your sustainability-focused business or non-profit do good work for good reasons?

Are you trying to balance purpose with profit?

Are you pursuing becoming a Certified B-Corporation?

My executive coaching clients operate businesses or organizations seeking to make a positive difference and be profitably sustainable at the same time. Do you believe business can be a powerful force for good? Are you committed to balancing stakeholder interests and are seeking to maximize your triple-bottom-line performance (people, profits, and our planet)? As an Executive Coach, I help visionaries, founders, idealists, social entrepreneurs, conscious capitalists, non-profits and B-Corps realize their mission for a better and brighter future. Doing good profitability is good business! I’m Coach Andy Dix. I’m an experienced Board-Certified Executive Business Coach. I use proven frameworks and processes to support positive difference makers and not allow you to become discouraged, distracted, or derailed on your way to building your dream into our reality. I’d like to help you to be your best at doing your good!


When your mission really matters it’s important for the visionary to maintain their personal optimal performance in the face of sometimes overwhelming adversity. Idealists can not only survive, they can THRIVE!

Are you thriving?  How could life and work be different if you increased your scores? Completing your meaningful mission depends on your ability to THRIVE!

My Approach

Do you aspire to effectively lead a sustainable business or be a successful social entrepreneur or make a huge positive impact in our world through a non-profit organization? Are you finding it difficult to balance your various stakeholder interests and remain profitable? Are you frustrated, fearful, discouraged, doubt-ridden, distracted or derailed regarding your plan to make your dream come true? Do you need encouraged and seek the support of someone who can hold you accountable for taking action and for making progress? Do you need someone to help you stop counter-productive behaviors or remove self-limiting beliefs?

No one was born highly effective and successful. Every visionary who maximizes their potential has worked hard and grew into the most effective version of themselves. They learn to maximize their strengths, gifts and talents, and manage around their limitations. If you ask them their secret to success, they will probably admit that they did not achieve greatness on their own. Legendary difference makers, social entrepreneurs, and conscious capitalist CEOs have all had coaches and mentors who supported, encouraged. and nurtured their development and growth. You can too!

To be the change you want to see in our would, you just need to allow yourself to be coachable. Then we can work together to co-create your individual ABC (Attitudes, Behaviors, and Competencies) Growth Plan. Your personal ABC Growth Plan will keep you focused and accountable for making progress towards achieving your most important goals, solving your biggest problems and overcoming your most daunting challenges and setbacks.

I coach people who are GIFTS to our world: Growth-oriented and committed to excellence, Inspired to pursue a meaningful mission, Fun to work with, Tenaciously taking on challenges and resistance, Seeking to make a significant and positive impact in our world.  If that sounds like you, then let’s talk about creating your ABC Growth Plan.

If your mission truly matters to you, then investing in becoming the best version of you to successfully complete your mission makes good sense.

While I am based in Indianapolis, Indiana, I work globally one-on-one with my clients via telephone or Zoom.

It would be a pleasure helping you be your best a doing your good!

Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.
