Welcome to my business coaching company The Biz Coach!

My name is Paul Oehm and I’m The Biz Coach with over 35 years of experience. Business coaching is in my DNA.

I’m a serial entrepreneur who grew up in a small town in an entrepreneurial family, living and breathing business. My father was a farmer, a feed dealer and owned a hardware store. From a very young age, he was my teacher and mentor who instilled a great work ethic in me.

My official entry into the world of business began around the age of seven. My father had 6,000 laying hens and when I was seven years old, I began to pick eggs for him. I loved picking eggs but I also had other business ventures in mind. To free up my time, I decided to sub contract the egg picking to my friends, paying them about 75% of my wage, and pocketing the balance to invest in my other businesses. I spent a lot of time with my dad, watching and learning.

Through him I learned not only how to run a business but also how to repair and build the physical and financial aspects of the business. I capitalized on this knowledge and seized an opportunity to start a business buying used bicycles and rebuilding them into cool chopper-style bikes which I sold. I also picked dew worms in the garden and sold them to tourists and local fishermen.

By the age of eighteen I had bought and sold over fifty bicycles, motorcycles, cars and trucks. I had raised over one-hundred head of cattle and ran a house painting business. I worked on many local farms driving tractors, haying and doing barn chores, and also worked at a local service station.

I started my first real business at the age of twenty in 1983. I grew this business from nothing to over three million in annual sales within three years in the 1980s, when farmers were paying 20% interest. These were very challenging times.

Since 1983, I have started five companies in five completely different industries. These companies include:

Company timeline

My businesses have generated over $100 million in sales over the past 35 years.

I have gone through many ups and downs over the course of starting, scaling and selling these businesses.

Over the course of running these businesses I always put my family first and raised three amazing children who are now building their own lives and pursuing successful careers. I have always enjoyed being very involved in my community. I spent many years giving back as a hockey coach and was also involved with my local Chamber of Commerce.

I graduated from Agricultural College with a diploma in Agricultural Business Management. I also have a Certificate in Business Management. I completed Tony Robbins Mastery University (including Business Mastery) and I also invested in coaching from E-Myth Mastery with Michael Gerber.
