    The Customer’s Experience

    What makes your customer experience different from the competition? What do customers experience when they experience your organization? Do they experience disorganization, poor customer service, and an overall low level of excellence?

    Search Engine Optimization 101

    With search engine optimization, Clay teaches the mindset of domination. That means that you should be able to own all of the listings on the front page of Google for your desired keyword. If you want more people to find your gym in Joplin, Missouri, you would want to dominate the search results for the keyword “Joplin gyms”. Sure, you...[ Read More ]

    Read a Book Instead

    “If you are ever going to ask someone for advice, don’t. Read a book instead from someone who actually knows what they are talking about.” - Clay Clark  Does this seem a little harsh? Maybe. But it is 100% true. The fact is, most people are wrong about most things. How do I know this? According to the Washington Post,...[ Read More ]

    The Art of Closing the Deal

    Having worked with many great business owners and business coaches, I’ve been able to see one common limiting factor that I have seen and that is closing the deal. Many times, we will receive a lead, call the lead, make a quote, and send the quote. Getting that far into the process is a great accomplishment but it is all...[ Read More ]

    Don’t Let Pride Hold You Back From Success

    While talking about helping business coach clients sell things and get google reviews at a faster rate this week Clay said this “What matters more, your pride or succeeding?”.

    Live the F6 Life

    Tuesday, I was asked a question that I realized a year ago, I would not have had the answer, advice or any type of system to provide.

I want...[ Read More ]

    Checklists Are Sexy

    One thing that Clay teaches in his business coaching book Start Here is the importance of checklists, guardrails, and quality control loops.

    Go Out on a Limb – That’s Where the Fruit is.

    My boss, Clay Clark is always dropping knowledge bombs on our business coach team at the Thrivetime Show. Sometimes, I hear something on the podcast just like you, where I’m going, “Whoa.
