Vanessa Clark: And we open the car door, and there’s this, kind of like the music Clay was just playing, surrounding us, this music as a business coach.
Clay Clark: I’m not exaggerating. This guy bought land that was just a beat up house in Santa Barbara, and he had a 20-year vision, so he planted bamboo around the perimeter of about a two-acre area, and then inside the bamboo, he plants palm trees, and inside that, he makes a path, and he has like six or seven dojos, and it plays music. It’s like … And so the guys are talking. They’re like, “Oh, man, this guy’s going to be fun to meet and fun to talk to.”
Vanessa Clark: And then we look up.
Clay Clark: We look up, and he’s in a yoga position.
Vanessa Clark: All in white.
Clay Clark: All in white, like in these robes like he’s Spock. You know, the Star Trek where they found Spock, and Spock’s hanging out in robes and stuff on his planet?
Jason Bailey: Oh, yeah.
Clay Clark: Jason, did you see this?
Jason Bailey: Oh, yeah.
Clay Clark: And the guys are like, “Should we engage in a conversation with him? Do we not and just let him be, he is a business coach, a mentor?”
Vanessa Clark: We got back in the car. We got back in. We were so scared we got back in the car. [inaudible 00:13:31] We were like, “We are for sure imposing on this super business coach.”
Jason Bailey: He’s prepared to attack at any time.
Clay Clark: But he listens to these meta waves every morning, so when you … Not kidding. On his property, it’s like wo, wo, wo, wo, and that what he does every day, and he spends like an hour and a half planning out his schedule, Z.
Robert Zoeller: That sounds … I want to go hang out with this guy, number one.
Clay Clark: Yeah.
Robert Zoeller: Number two, when we get back, I’m going to tell you the most important reason why you have to define.
Clay Clark: Okay.
Robert Zoeller: The most important … It’s a little secret sauce.
Clay Clark: The secret sauce. [crosstalk 00:13:54] All right. Well, I’m going to get some Oklahoma Joe’s, and I’ll be back here in a few minutes, my friend. Thrivetimeshow.com. All right. Welcome back to the Thrive Show, the Thrive Time Show, easy for me to say the Thrive Time Show business school without the BS, and yes, my name is Clay Clark. I’m on the show with you, and as always, I like to bring my friends inside the box that rocks, and so today, we have the owner of DJ Connection, Jason Bailey. We have my incredible wife of 15 years, Mrs. Vanessa Clark, and we have the man, the myth, the legend. Really, there’s Yoda, but then you upgrade, and there’s Broda. We have Tulsa’s Broda. It’s Dr. Robert Zoellner. Sir, how are you?
Robert Zoeller: I’m always kind of standing back going, “What he going to say this day? What’s he going to say this time?” When we come out of a commercial break, it’s like, “What’s he going to do?” [crosstalk 00:14:48].
Clay Clark: And since all there’s all the fines keep coming, and I’ve had to really tone it down. Some of descriptions I had early on-
Robert Zoeller: We do appreciate that, by the way.
Clay Clark: Yeah. No, but seriously, thrivers, we are talking today about something I could not be more passionate about. It is the process of entrepreneurship. So many entrepreneurs think it’s going to be an event. “I’m going to get this. I’m going to get that. I’m going to market it. Boom. I’m rich.” No. It’s always a process, and it’s like your beveling it. So first you build it. Then you kind of bevel it, and you keep adjusting it until you build this business that’s successful, but usually overnight success is on the other end of a five- to ten-year investment into something, and so it takes a while. We were talking about how you have to start by beginning with the end in mind, and specifically, defining what you want your future to be like. And so Z, you had a point on that that you wanted to get back to.
Robert Zoeller: Yeah. I think we talk about the reasons why. We talked about that a little bit, but the most important reason why I feel like you have to be very purposeful in your defining where you want to go, what you want to be when you grow up, your business that is, and that is for money.
Clay Clark: Money?
Robert Zoeller: Here’s the deal. You need to have some of your own skin in the game. You got to have some of your own cash in the game, but a lot of you out there, your vision’s bigger than what you just have in your bank roll, so you want to either, one, go to a bank. We would humbly suggest Regent Bank, very business-
Clay Clark: (singing)
Robert Zoeller: (singing)
Clay Clark: Sorry, I’m just … Jason’s been teaching me.
Jason Bailey: And that’s a great song [inaudible 00:16:22].
Robert Zoeller: It’s catching on.
Clay Clark: It’s unbelievable how similar it … I can’t quite place-
Jason Bailey: There’s not a song, no, not a song.
Clay Clark: But when he was performing it, he had a ruffled shirt on, and I had these high-heeled platform shoes.
Robert Zoeller: Were they purple?
Clay Clark: Yeah. It was purple, and for some reason, I just was going, “What is … Who’s …”
Robert Zoeller: Was it rainy? Was it raining?
Clay Clark: Yeah. It was raining, and it was almost like there was a purple … Like the way that the light shining, it was like a purple rain, and I’m going, “Man, this song could be the king of all songs we’ve ever written,” and Jason goes, “No, I think it could be the …” And then we couldn’t think of what the next [crosstalk 00:16:56] was going to say.
Jason Bailey: Under a king, but not-
Clay Clark: What’s just one step under a king?
Jason Bailey: That’s fine. I don’t know.
Robert Zoeller: Like a jester. Like a court jester.
Jason Bailey: Above that.
Robert Zoeller: Above that?
Clay Clark: Not so much here, but here. Okay.
