1.2 – Are You Going to Use a GPS or Spend Your Time Chronically Lost?
Clay has written this book with the stated goal of “providing people with the world’s most POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT BUSINESS BOOK EVER” (while at the same time, demonstrating his humility). This business coach book provides you with a step-by-step guide that you can refer to time and time again and that will serve as your virtual business GPS and navigation system. Back in the day before global positioning systems had become available on every smartphone and before Clay had enough disposable cash to fill up the gas tank on his Hummer whenever he wanted, he used to get so lost that he would occasionally run into Yoda and every other wise hermit seeking to escape the world by moving to the outskirts of humanity. But when GPS became readily available, he now had a choice. Was he going to allow billion-dollar, precise and proven satellite technology to guide him to his desired destinations, or was he going to be a jackass? He chose to be a jackass for six more months, but then he started using a GPS after his sanity was called into question. You have that same choice today. Will you follow a proven system from a business coach or be a jackass?

1.3 – Results from Implementers and Doers (Just Like You)
“Our experience working with business coach, Clay Clark and his team has been nothing short of amazing. When our team first met Clay, I expressed that if we were able to move the needle and get results, we would be working together for a very long time. Clay and his team listened to our problems and custom built a program specifically for us. So far this season, we have experienced a 42% increase in corporate sponsorship sales, a 10% increase in season ticket sales and over a 103% increase in group tickets sales! We have also had a 21% increase in people actually attending the games thus resulting in a 27% increase in concession and novelty sales. Our program focused on search engine optimization, an increased social media presence, targeted online ads, digital retargeting ads, and the implementation of the Dream 100 system. Beyond that, Clay’s team redesigned our website making it more visually appealing and user friendly for our online visitors by creating a dynamic visual experience. Our slogan for Tulsa Oilers hockey is ‘Feel The Boom’; thanks Clay for giving us that BOOM!”

“Clay is very engaging, very charming and very humorous and his presentation had a very practical side too. As a speaker, he teaches you things that you can use to make yourself more successful and your business more successful. But perhaps more significantly, he has that genuine enthusiasm. After I listened to his presentation, it was like an emotional springboard. It was one of the best presentations I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen Jack Canfield and I’ve seen Tony Robbins, and I can tell you that Clay made a far greater impact on me than any of those other speakers, as great as they are and as great as they were at that time.”
“You certainly were the on-site leader that we needed for this calling campaign. By watching you work with these students and seeing the result, I became reassured that hiring you to do exactly what you did was the right thing to do. Your team brought in over $120K in gifts and pledges, which may be an all-time ORU phonathon record! But I’ll have more for you later. I smile to think how funny you were and what a GREAT job you did for us. Again, thanks for everything….and don’t drink too much Red Bull!”

“I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Clark in 2010 when I managed over 2.2 million square feet of downtown office and retail space. I can recommend him highly and without reservation. I had hired Mr. Clark to rebrand the portfolio and reach out to prospective tenants. Throughout the course of the campaign, Mr. Clark was a consummate professional. He conducted market research, built a website, and coordinated obtaining pictures, print materials, and gaining media attention within what I would deem record time. Within the first week of Mr. Clark going public with the campaign, he generated hundreds of prospective tenants. Mr. Clark’s positive attitude is contagious, he is hard worker, and he is genuinely a great guy to work with. I hope that in the near future I will have the opportunity to work with Mr. Clark again.”
