    One Life, One To Do list, One Calendar

    One of the most powerful life tips Clay and Jonathan have taught me as a business coach is to have one calendar and one to-do list and to carry them with me at all times. I have mentioned it before but I will say it again. Prior to coming to Thrive, I thought I could remember everything. Ha! I kept...[ Read More ]

    The Powerful Influence of Scarcity

    This week as a business coach, I learned about the power within the law of scarcity. Or maybe it was simply brought to light more so this week. People want what they can’t have. We all know this to be true.  In fact, Business Insider talks about the psychology of this and how our primal desire makes certain people seem...[ Read More ]

    Common Sense is Not Common

    This week at Thrive was very eventful because business coach Clay said something that really made sense when talking and dealing with other people. The phrase was "Common sense is not common." This was huge for me because what I think is common sense and seems like the normal thing to do is not what other people do. I thought...[ Read More ]

    Are you living the life you want to live in?  Or do all of your responsibilities and commitments overwhelm your day? Are you constantly putting out burning fires and allowing tasks to be put off to the next day?  Lee Cockerell, the former head of Walt Disney who managed 40,000 employees says “Time management is not about managing your time,...[ Read More ]

    Business Coach on Having the Correct Focus

    Have you ever just sat back and observed the world? It seems like in today's age, if you look around, it's almost like there are a lot of blind people wandering around in the woods. People seem lost, they don't know what to do. They don't know how to manage their time or finances. People seem oblivious to what is...[ Read More ]

    Stop Getting Stuck

    Dragon Energy - It is a mindset that you have to have as an entrepreneur. A mindset of “I will not stop, I will not move on, I will not sleep until I get this action item done.”   Getting stuck is one of the most common things I see as a business coach happens with business owners and in...[ Read More ]

    No matter what type of industry you are in, or in my case, what type of business coaching clients I'm working with, at some point every person is going to encounter stressful and intense situations.

    The 6 Superplays You Need to Know

    If you don’t have a product or service to offer, then you cannot and will not be successful. In order to earn a profit, you must sell something.

    Shared Traits of the Super Successful

    Since I started working with Clay over 3 years ago as a business coach, I have been able to meet a lot of very successful people including Clay himself. All successful people share a lot of the same characteristics and mindsets and it is easy to spot them. There is something else that all successful people have. Whether they are...[ Read More ]

    Start With What You Can Do

    Jocko VS Clay I’ve been doing two things recently to stay educated and motivated, re-reading chapters of Clay’s Start Here business conference book and listening to far too many Jocko Willink podcasts. Now, most people would say this is counter-intuitive as Jocko is almost one hundred percent, pure motivational speaker, whereas Clay is completely part of Camp “Shut the hell...[ Read More ]

    Eat A Big ‘Ole bowl Of Conflict Flakes

    Oh, conflict. It's a subject that makes 99% of people recoil. Confrontation is such an unpleasant thing that most people just deal with the things themselves or tell every single person except for the person that it pertains to, all so that they can avoid one conversation or one man's opinion...that’s crazy! For something that is so widely hated it...[ Read More ]

    Constant State of Distraction

    Before my time here at Thrive I never really knew how distracted I was. I never knew the number of times that I got off task and would do something less productive. At my last job, it was a common occurrence for the other workers to start a project for someone or to be given a list of things that...[ Read More ]

    Is Your Mind Conventional or Dimensional?

    When it comes to your mind - your brain - your cranium, does your mind operate in a conventional or dimensional way? How should your mind operate? What exactly does it mean to have a conventional versus dimensional mind? Oxford defines conventional as “based on or in accordance with what is generally done or believed”. Oxford also defines dimensional as...[ Read More ]
  • Conflict Resolution class=

    Conflict Resolution

    When I was at my last job it was common for the other employees to argue with customers. They would argue with them about the materials that we got or argue with them because they both thought that they were right. The biggest problem was that no one listened to what the other was saying, no one tried to resolve...[ Read More ]

    It’s Time to Recalibrate

    Quiet time, meditation, meta time, prayer, reflection, whatever you choose to call it, every single human needs time away from the noise. Time to reset your mind and decompress from everyday life. Now before I lose you, this isn’t some woo-woo feelings post it just literally boils down to you need to set time aside for your mind to reset...[ Read More ]

    Behave Like A Boss: Separate Emotions From The Equation

    Welcome Back, Beasley!  They said it couldn’t be done. They said nobody could ever escape from the dungeon that dwells under the man cave.

    The Soft Selling Art

    One of the great things that Clay teaches as a business coach is the art of Soft Selling. Soft Selling is where you are selling to your customer but they don’t even know it.

    Marketing is KEY!

    This week at the Thrivetime Show business coach offices, I learned about how our marketing keeps us top in Google and brings in leads.  Marketing is a necessary aspect of any business that wants to be successful. Many people do not understand how to effectively market their service or product.  Clay Clark teaches how turn-key marketing will bring in leads...[ Read More ]

    The DOOM Loop

    I have a business coaching client who is going through a sort of a doom loop in his business. The situation that he finds himself in is that while he is growing every year, because his business model has very low profitability, as he grows his revenue, his expenses also increase simultaneously. While he is excited about bringing in new...[ Read More ]

    The Four Letter Word in Business

    The word SELL seems to be a four-letter word for a lot of people. When it comes to selling, there can be a lot of hesitation or ambivalence or just straight-up fear of rejection. I'm sure we've all experienced what it's like to work with the stereotypical salesperson at a used car lot. We probably come to expect that they...[ Read More ]

    The Power of Getting Pissed

    This week at the best business coaching program in the universe I had another great week learning more and more about managing a team.  Specifically how to follow up and get pissed to get things done. Managing means you are regularly pissing someone off. Colin Powell, the United States Secretary of State from 2001 to 2005 said that “Being responsible...[ Read More ]
  • Write It Down! class=

    Write It Down!

    One thing Clay always teaches as a business coach is the fact that you have to document everything or you will lose your mind. Documenting everything from your passwords, images, videos, legal files, and marketing pieces should be mandatory in every business and in everybody’s life. Everyone has experienced the consequences of this at least once. It’s the classic case...[ Read More ]
  • Don’t Listen To The Voices Of The Average

    This week I was able to witness some killer management moves by Clay and Jonathan Kelly. Without getting into all the details of the issues, Jonathan was trying to get to the root of a particular problem and when we found out how the mistake was made and who made it, me and another co-worker started to think of ways...[ Read More ]

    Delaying the Pleasure

    The big things in life always come after hard work, time and persistence. All of the millionaires and billionaires that Clay has interviewed as a business coach have all made their money after years of work. The biggest shock to me was the fact that Warren Buffett made 99.7% of his money after age 52. This was absolutely mind-blowing to...[ Read More ]

    Clay Clark’s 6 Steps of Success

    During the all-staff, Monday morning Thrivetime Show business coaching meeting, Clay Clark broke down his secrets of success in a very simple and practical way.

    Systems = Freedom | Business Coaching Programs

    This week at the number one business coaching programs in America I learned about systems in business.  Systems are the framework of success. Successful companies across the globe use them, from Chick-fil-A to Quiktrip to Wal-Mart.  Every part of these companies involve a system; hiring, training, managing, selling, answering the phone, even the cleaning has a system in place to...[ Read More ]

    There Is No Such Thing As Neutral | Business Conferences

    Recently Clay said something during a coaches meeting that really stood out to me. He was giving us all the feedback about our most recent business conferences. He said that one of the many things that makes us unique is the energy that we as a team give off. He said our energy at the business conferences was great but...[ Read More ]
