Audio Transcription

Mickey Mihalick:

My name’s Mickey Mihalick and I own Capital Waste Solutions. Jumping out on my own was my biggest fear. I really love that corporate safety net of a consistent paycheck. Knowing that we had the corporate background structure to stay there, the standard operating procedures, everything had a book and a policy of how things had to be done. Unfortunately, that puts you in a box sometimes, and Clay helped me to release that and understand that “Hey, go take off, explore, find new areas,” and it was really the confidence to jump outside the box.

Anytime you start something new or you have to reach out, I feel it brings a level of exposure, by admitting, “Maybe I don’t know as much as I put off about sales or marketing.” When Clay came to speak with me, he said it’s okay to not know everything. And that really was a game changer for me.

Clay’s helped me probably the most with our graphic design on our website. That’s one thing that I do not claim to know anything about. In fact, I’m better off throwing the computer out the window than I am using it. What was nice about working with the guys at Thrive15 and working with Clay was I could go in with a silly sketch on paper, pencil and paper, and I could say, “Hey, this is what I want it to look like.” Or they’d make it so simple, they’d pull up my phone and say, “Hey, FaceTime with me real quick and point to what you don’t like,” and they worked on my level instead of me having to meet them at their level.

And not only that, but the upbeat atmosphere is fun. You come in and it’s all about you, and it’s nice to be the one that gets to drink from the fountain instead of constantly pouring into someone else.

Why not learn something new? Why not admit to yourself that, hey, I can learn more, I can be better, I can be greater. As a basketball player in college, I was nothing without the coaches that invested in me day after day after day to help me work on a move or a play that I maybe wasn’t the best at, and that fueled me to be successful in our game. It’s those little battles that win the war and when you have Clay Clark, it’s a coach, it’s a general that helps you through the battle, so ultimately you win that war.

Mark Morrow:

Hi, I’m Dr. Mark Morrow. I’m a pediatric dentist. Through our new digital marketing plan, we have seen a marked increase in the number of new patients that we’re seeing every month, year over year. One month for example, we went from 110 new patients the previous year to over 180 new patients in the same month. And overall, our average is running about 40 to 42% increase month over month, year over year. The group of people required to implement our new digital marketing plan is immense, starting with a business coach, videographers, photographers, web designers.

Back when I graduated dental school in 1985, nobody advertised. The only marketing that was ethically allowed in everybody’s eyes was mouth-to-mouth marketing. By choosing to use the services you’re choosing to use a proof and turnkey marketing and coaching system that will grow your practice and get you the results that you are looking for. I went to the University of Oklahoma, College of Dentistry, graduated in 1983, and then I did my pediatric dental residency at Baylor College of Dentistry from 1983 to 1985. I established my practice here in Tulsa in 1985.


One of the things that I hear in my world a lot as a business consultant from business owners is they will tell me, “Clay, I want you to help me, but my industry is different. And so on today’s show, I’m going to introduce you to a wonderful client who’s a pediatric dentist, and I also am going to introduce you to a wonderful client who’s a real estate agent, and I’m also going to introduce you to a wonderful client who does mortgages, and a wonderful client who’s a family doctor, and a wonderful client who trained dogs, and a wonderful client who runs the UPS stores for all of Canada.

Then I’ll introduce you to a wonderful client who has a massive real estate franchise empire. Then I’m going to introduce you to a wonderful client that sells new homes. Then I’m going to introduce you to a wonderful client who sells insurance, and then a wonderful client who runs a church and a wonderful client who… The wonderful client who sells insurance, I think I mentioned that. A wonderful client that has a research lab.

And at the end of the day you’ll discover that if you will follow the proven systems that I will teach you at our in-person workshops or through our one-on-one coaching program, it’s like bumper bowling for business. It’s like, if you’re tired of throwing gutter balls and you want to have success, this system will absolutely change your life. It’s a step-by-step system, it’s a linear workflow. It’s going to absolutely change your life. Now without any further ado here is Dr. Morrow sharing about how this system has changed his life and his business’ life, and the lives of his employees and the growth of his pediatric dentistry. So here we go.

Charles Colaw:

Hello, my name is Charles Colaw with Coaw Fitness. Today I want to tell you a little bit about Clay Clark, and how I know Clay Clarke. Clay Clarke has been my business coach since 2017. He’s helped us grow from two locations to now six locations. We’re planning to do seven locations in seven years and then franchise, and Clay has done a great job of helping us navigate anything that has to do with running the business, building the systems, the checklists, the workflows, the audits, how to navigate lease agreements, how to buy property, how to work with brokers and builders. This guy’s just amazing, he’s…

This kind of guy has worked in every single industry. He’s written books with Lee Crockwell, head of Disney with the 40,000 cast members, he’s friends with Mike Lindell. He does Reawaken America tours where he does these tours all across the country where 10,000 or more people show up to some of these tours. On the day-to-day, he does anywhere from about 160 companies. He’s at the top. He has a team of business coaches, videographers, and graphic designers and web developers, and they run 160 companies every single week.

So think of this guy with a team of business coaches running 160 companies. So in the weekly he’s running 160 companies, every six to eight weeks he’s doing Reawaken America tours. Every six to eight weeks, he’s also doing business conferences where 200 people show up and he teaches people a 13-step proven system that he’s done and worked with billionaires, helping them grow their companies. So I’ve seen guys from startups go from startup to being multimillionaires, teaching people how to get time freedom and financial freedom through the system, critical thinking, document creation, making it, putting it into, organizing everything in their head to building it into a franchisable scalable business.

Like one of his businesses has 500 franchises. That’s just one of the companies or brands that he works with. So amazing guy, Elon Musk kind of smart guy. He comes off sometimes a socially awkward, but he’s so brilliant and he’s taught me so much. When I say that Clay is… He doesn’t care what people think when you’re talking to him, he cares about where you’re going in your life and where he can get you to go, and that’s what I like the most about him. He’s like a good coach. A coach isn’t just making you feel good all the time. A coach is actually helping you get to the best you and Clay has been a amazing business coach.

Through the course of that, we became friends. When I was really most impressed with him is when I was shadowing him one time, we went into a business deal and listened to it. I got to shadow and listen to it, and when we walked out, I knew that he could make millions on the deal and they were super excited about working with him and he told me, he’s like, “I’m not going to touch it. I’m going to turn it down.” Because he knew it was going to harm the common good of people in the long run, and the guy’s integrity just really wowed me. It brought tears to my eyes to see that this guy, his highest desire was to do what’s right and… Anyways, just an amazing man.

So anyways, impacted me a lot. He’s helped navigate, anytime I’ve got nervous or worried about how to run the company or navigating competition and an economy that’s like… I remember we got closed down for three months. He helped us navigate on how to stay open, how to get back open, how to just survive through all the COVID shutdowns, lockdowns because our clubs were all closed for three months and you have $350,000 of bills you’ve got to pay, and we have no accounts receivable. He helped us navigate that, and of course we were conservative enough that we could afford to take that on for a period of time, but he was…

Anyways, great, man. I’m very impressed with him. So Clay, thank you for everything you’re doing. And I encourage you, if you haven’t ever worked with Clay, work with Clay, he’s going to help magnify you. And there’s nobody I have ever met that has the ability to work as hard as he does. He probably sleeps four, maybe six hours a day and literally the rest of the time he’s working. And he can outwork everybody in the room every single day and he loves it. So anyways, this is Charles Colaw with Colaw Fitness. Thank you Clay. And anybody out there that’s wanting to work with Clay, it’s a great, great opportunity to ever work with him. So you guys have a blessed one. This is Charles Colaw. We’ll see you guys. Bye-bye.

Aaron Antis:

Hi, I’m Aaron Antis with Shaw Homes. I first heard about Clay through a mortgage lender here in town who had told me what a great job he had been doing for them, and I actually noticed he was driving a Lamborghini all of a sudden, so I was willing to listen. In my career, I’ve sold a little over $800 million in real estate. So honestly, I thought I kind of knew everything about marketing and homes. And then I met Clay and my perception of what I knew and what I could do definitely changed. After doing 800 million in sales over a 15 year career, I really thought I knew what I was doing. I’ve been managing a large team of salespeople for the last 10 years here with Shaw Homes and I mean, we’ve been a company that’s been in business for 35 years.

We’ve become one of the largest builders in the Tulsa area, and that was without Clay. So when I came to know Clay, I really thought, man, there’s not much more I need to know, but I’m willing to listen. The interesting thing is our internet leads from our website has actually in a four-month period of time has gone from somewhere around 10 to 15 leads in a month to 180 internet leads in a month. Just from the few things that he’s shown us how to implement that I honestly probably never would’ve come up with on my own. So I got a lot of good things to say about the system that Clay put in place with us, and it’s just been an incredible experience. I am very glad that we met and had the opportunity to work with Clay.

So the interaction with the team and with Clay on a weekly basis is honestly very enlightening. One of the things that I love about Clay’s perspective on things is that he doesn’t come from my industry. He’s not somebody who’s in the home building industry. I’ve listened to all the experts in my field. Our company has paid for me to go to seminars, international builders’ shows, all kinds of places where I’ve had the opportunity to learn from the experts in my industry. But the thing that I’ve found working with Clay is that he comes from such a broad spectrum of working with so many different types of businesses that he has a perspective that’s difficult for me to gain, because I get so entrenched in what I do, I’m not paying attention to what other leading industry experts are doing.

And Clay really brings that perspective for me. It is very valuable time every week when I get that hour with him. From my perspective, the reason that any business owner who’s thinking about hooking up with Thrive needs to definitely consider it, is because the results that we’ve gotten in a very short period of time are honestly monumental. It has really exceeded my wildest expectation of what he might be able to do. I came in skeptical because I’m very pragmatic, and as I’ve gone through the process over just a few months, I’ve realized it’s probably one of the best moves we’ve ever made.

I think a lot of people probably feel like they don’t need a business or marketing consultant, because they maybe are a little bit prideful and like to think they know everything. I know that’s how I felt coming in. I mean, we’re a big company that’s definitely one of the largest in town, and so we kind of felt like we knew what we were doing. And I think for a lot of people, they let their ego get in the way of listening to somebody that might have a better or different perspective than theirs. I would just really encourage you, if you’re thinking about working with Clay, the thing is, it’s month to month. Go give it a try and see what happens.

I think in the 35-year history of Shaw Holmes, this is probably the best thing that’s happened to us, and I know if you give him a shot, I think you’ll feel the same way. I know for me, the thing I would’ve missed out on if I didn’t work with Clay is I would’ve missed out on literally an 1800% increase in our internet leads, going from 10 a month to 180 a month. That would’ve been a huge financial decision to just decide not to give it a shot. I would absolutely recommend Clay Clark to anybody who’s thinking about working with somebody in marketing. I would skip over anybody else you were thinking about, and I would go straight to Clay and his team. I guarantee you’re not going to regret it because we sure haven’t.

Danielle Sprik:

My name is Danielle Sprik and I am the founder of DS Sprik Realty Group here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After being a stay-at-home mom for 12 years and my three kids started school and they were in school fulltime, I was at a crossroads and trying to decide, what do I want to do? My degree and my background is in education, but after being a mom and staying home and all of that, I just didn’t have a passion for it like I once did.

My husband suggested real estate, he’s a home builder, so real estate and home building go hand-in-hand, and we just rolled with it. I love people. I love working with people, I love the building relationships, but one thing that was really difficult for me was the business side of things, the processes and the advertising and marketing. I knew that I did not have what I needed to make that what it should be. So I reached out to Clay at that time, and he and his team have been extremely instrumental in helping us build our brand, help market our business, our agents, the homes that we represent. Everything that we do is a direct line from Clay and his team and all that they’ve done for us.

We launched our brokerage, our real estate brokerage eight months ago, and in that time we’ve gone from myself and one other agent to just this week, we signed on our 16th agent. We have been blessed with the fact that we right now have just over 10 million in pending transactions. Three years ago, I never would have even imagined that I would be in this role that I’m in today building a business, having 16 agents, but I have to give credit where credit’s due and Clay and his team and the business coaching that they’ve offered us has been huge. It’s been instrumental in what we’re doing. Don’t ever limit your vision. When you dream big, big things happen.

Chad Edwards:

I started a business because I couldn’t work for anyone else. I do things my way. I do what I think is in the best interest of the patient. I don’t answer to insurance companies. I don’t answer to large corporate organizations. I answer to my patient and that’s it.

My thought when I opened my clinic was, I can do this all myself. I don’t need additional outside help in many ways. I mean, I went to medical school, I can figure this out. But it was a very, very steep learning curve. Within the first six months of opening my clinic, I had a $63,000 embezzlement, I lost multiple employees. Clay helped us weather the storm of some of the things that just a lot of people experienced, especially in the medical world.

He was instrumental in helping with the specific written business plan. He’s been instrumental in hiring good quality employees using the processes that he outlines for getting in good talent, which is extremely difficult. He helped me in securing the business loans. He helped me with web development and search engine optimization. We’ve been able to really keep a steady stream of clients coming in, because they found us on the web. With everything that I encountered, everything that I experienced, I quickly learned it is worth every penny to have someone in your team that can walk you through and even avoid some of the pitfalls that are almost invariable in starting your own business. I’m Dr. Chad Edwards and I own Revolution Health and Wellness Clinic.

Steve Carrington:

Hey Clay Clark and my Thrive peeps. It’s Steve Carrington, as you can tell, although I’m not wearing my signature green shirt as usual, but I am riding in my signature green Lamborghini. And I just wanted to say how appreciative I am of Thrive and all the guys at Thrive Time and the show and everything that you guys have done. At Total Lending Concepts, we have had tremendous growth and a lot of things changing, especially on the marketing front. And from a coaching perspective and from a web presence and branding and our internet leads are up, everything is hammering on all cylinders, and really we’re just trying to figure out how we can leverage the systems and the processes that we’re learning at Thrive more in our business.

So now we’re setting up a lead tracking system that has been long overdue and we’re doing lots of stuff. But I wanted to take a minute and say thank you, thank you, thank you to Thrive and Clay Clark and Dr Z and everybody for all the help in helping us grow our business, and hopefully buy more Lamborghinis like this the more we sell. So appreciate it guys. See ya.


I’m Rachel with Tiptop Canine and we just want to give a huge thank you to Clay and Vanessa Clark.


Hey guys, I’m Ryan with Tiptop Canine. Just want to say a big thank you to Thrive15, thank you to Make Your Life Epic. We love you guys, we appreciate you and really just appreciate how far you’ve taken us.

This is our old house. This is where we used to live, here. This is our old neighborhood, see? Nice. So this is my old van and our old-school marketing, and this is our old team and by team I mean it’s me and another guy.


This is our new house with our new neighborhood.

This is our new van with our new marketing, and this is our new team. We went from four to 14 and I took this beautiful photo. We worked with several different business coaches in the past, and they were all about helping Ryan sell better and just teaching sales, which is awesome. But Ryan is a really great salesman, so we didn’t need that. We needed somebody to help us get everything that was in his head out into systems, into manuals and scripts, and actually build a team. So now that we have systems in place, we’ve gone from one to 10 locations in only a year.


In October 2016, we grossed 13 grand for the whole month. Right now it’s 2018, the month of October. It’s only the 22nd. We’ve already grossed a little over 50 grand for the whole month, and we still have time to go. We’re just thankful for you, thankful for Thrive and your mentorship, and we’re really thankful that you guys have helped us to grow a business that we run now instead of the business running us. Just thank you, thank you, thank you times a thousands.


So we really just want to thank you, Clay, and thank you, Vanessa for everything you’ve done, everything you’ve helped us with. We love you guys.

Speaker 11:

Bird, they said it couldn’t be done. They said you couldn’t fill up to be okay, sir. They said it wasn’t possible, but yet if you look, it appears to be full. Oh, we’re making America boom again.

Speaker 12:

Very full.

Speaker 11:

Very oh, very full. Lots of marketing courtesy of John Kelly and Devin and Darling, and this mind and this hat. So there it, sold out baby, ooooh.

Taylor Hall:

My name is Taylor Hall. I’m the general manager of the Tulsa Oilers Professional Hockey team. Our goal every night here at the BOK Center is to try to fill the seats with lots of people and create an exciting environment so when somebody comes to a game, they want to come back. Working with Clay and the staff at Thrive, they’ve really helped us in many, many ways. Website and graphic design and video production, and a lot of things that go along. And a lot of businesses, including ours, doesn’t have a staff or a full-time videographer or a graphic designer.

But the biggest thing that we noticed was the needle mover, more sales, more attendance, more successes in business. We had a record year last season working with Clay for the first time. Our average attendance is higher than it’s ever been, so there was a lot of really cool things that we did and they worked. That’s the nice thing about working with Clay and the team over there. It’s just not one person. You get the entire team. If you need video design and editing and production, they’ve got that. If you need graphic design, if you need some coaching, your sales people and call scripts, PR, they offer all that. Clay was instrumental in helping guiding us and getting us on the right track so that we could really raise the bar and become ultra successful. So it’s been an amazing experience for us.

Nick Smith:

My name is Nick Smith and I’m an agency owner with Farmer’s Insurance. I grew up in a middle class family all the way up until I was about 13, and then my dad lost his job and then all of a sudden he was gone and I was being raised by my mom by herself. She was probably making 20 grand a year. In order for me to have a car, I had to pay for the car, I had to pay for the gas. I had to do everything on my own. So the independent thinking had to come early, if I wanted to do anything.

A couple years ago, man, I was stuck in a rut. I really honestly was, and I couldn’t see it. Not because I was doing it wrong, it’s because I didn’t know any better. Rates were not good. Selling was difficult. Staffing was just unbelievably difficult to keep good staff in here. I was having a ton of turnover, and I was about ready to hang it up and sell out. I was just done. And that’s about when I got introduced to the concept of the Will of Wealth and Thrive.

Some of the specific things I’ve learned about running my business is systems and being organized. Before, I think I just kind of shot from the hip a lot of times, but man, since I started this whole journey and I’ve developed systems for each of the employees, but not just the employees, but for the position. So the fear of wondering when I’m gone, wondering if things are being done, I don’t have to worry quite as much. Business-wise, finally got over the hump and we’re actually growing again, whereas before we were just declining, declining, declining. And now we’re back up and we’re back over what we were a couple years ago.

Now the training’s ongoing even from where I’m at now, I still feel like I need to get further. The training itself is just, it’ll rock your world. It really will change the way you think and look at business. So all those things just culminated into this big successful business that I feel like I have now. All that stuff has just been life altering.

Speaker 14:

All right, Clay’s awesome. He’s very entertaining, very energized, has some quirky, unique ways to get engagement with the audience. So really pleased to have Clay do our keynote today. Well, I think it was being willing to take some risks on stage, taking some risks relative to how to set the audience up. I think that created this sort of “what’s going to happen next.” And so just that risk-taking created a unique tension that I think ultimately resulted in a great experience. Well, I think Clay would be an awesome presenter for a number of groups. One, I think that the material that he delivers is spot-on, but he also can deliver some additional products and services to the organization even beyond just the things that he does on stage.

David Drerker:

My name is David Drerker, the president for UPS Stores Canada. Also a member of the AFA board and honorary position. So kind of a crossover with both sides. I thought it was great. I thought Clay did a wonderful job. I think anytime you’re able to get a diverse group together to start finding the commonalities, you’re starting to pull the threads together that are going to make something for the future. I think that was the objective for today, and I think Clay was really able to pull that out. I thought Clay was really good at shifting speeds. He was fast when he needed to be fast, detailed when he needed to be detailed, was able to read the room every so often. If we started drifting off too far to the left or too far to the right, he was right there to rudder us back on course. So I mean, really, I don’t think we could have chosen a better guy for the day to lead us.

Speaker 17:

My impression of Clay was his energy, and just the energy that he had on stage and how passionate he is about his message. And I really felt like I could connect with that because it was very genuine and believable and sincere, and I really appreciate the sincerity of it all. So the lesson nugget is in fact the action nugget. It’s like you can think of things all day long. You can read books all day long. You can do whatever you’re going to do as far as business planning, but if you don’t implement and actually take action, then it doesn’t mean anything. It is all about taking the steps and standing up and going forward and engaging in an action activity.

Well, what was so different about this is the sense of humor. Their really great sense of humor, very lively, very engaging and interesting. In a lot of presentations you just kind of sit there and go, “Oh, no, no,” but this was fun. This was fun and interesting and engaging.

Speaker 18:

I love Clay. Very funny. You never know, right? With a keynote speaker, you don’t know. So you got to open up. He’s got a good sense of humor. I like the video at the beginning. It started out perfect. I’m like, “Oh, great. Another speaker that’s been to a millions corporations.” I liked it. I, it was really well done. The guy’s good.

Speaker 19:

Clay’s fantastic. I mean, the guy is hilarious, captivating, kept the room moving. I love the fact that he got everybody up and moving. The fact that you could get John Tanney up dancing in his seat like that is worth the price of admission right there. It just reinvigorates you, you hear somebody talk about how, you put it in systems into your business, how you got to seize the day. I mean, all that stuff is stuff you know deep down you should be doing. But those reminders help, and it really, it’s the right time if you’re open to it. I mean, that’s what it’s all about.

Because I’m a product of the nineties, I liked his notorious BIG rap a little bit, but I get it, man. He is exactly right. I got a ton of buddies that are sitting around playing PlayStation every day and they’re not studying success. And I think that’s the thing. Because to me, the one thing I really take away from that conversation is poverty is our baseline. Everybody knows poverty. You don’t need to teach poverty, you need to teach success. And the fact that he said that was like music to my ears.

I think he just is, just really gets our industry. You get a lot of realtors that try and be motivational speakers. But he truly is a motivational speaker. He’s a businessman. He’s obviously been around the block and done a lot of things. And I think all those applications, because real estate at the end of the day is the business of business.

Speaker 20:

I love Clay. I’ve known Clay just socially, but I’ve never heard him speak before. And I was probably most taken by the fact that he was just common in so many ways and made fun of himself, but also brought that aspect of “these are my lessons,” and these are lessons from some very influential people who we all recognized. So probably what I took away from him the most was the net promoter score and the fact that your wow factor from what you provide to your clients really creates that score, and you really have to go the extra mile to bring people to that level of impression.

I appreciated Clay’s story about his father and the picture with the kids, with the girls. I thought that was very meaningful and takes the whole thing, the rest of his message and stories and things that he’s sharing and really puts them in perspective for people who are listening. You could tell he enjoys what he does and believes in what he’s presenting, and that’s a connection with an audience that is more important than the name or even what’s being presented. It’s real, it’s transparent and it’s genuine.

Josh Wilson:

My name is Josh Wilson and I’m the owner of Living Water Irrigation. So I’ve been working with Thrive since December of 2017. So the biggest changes we’ve seen as a company is first of all, just systematically how we do things, how we present things. Our Google presence is phenomenal, our website’s a million times better, and just the overall accountability and the process by which we’re conducting ourselves. So our biggest win since working with Thrive is we literally, March was a record month for us. It was almost twice as much as our biggest month prior to that. In the last week or so, we’ve closed about $250,000 worth of business. We still have to go dig a bunch of ditches and get it done, but we signed about $250,000 worth of business with the relationships we’ve built, the things that they’ve implemented through Victoria and Clay and everybody here at Thrive.

So I would recommend Thrive to other business owners simply because they can point out where you’re flawed and what you need to work on. You just have to be real and honest with yourself on what you need to improve upon. So that would be first and foremost. And the huge reason why I would do it, because it works. Actually everything that they said when we came in for our initial meeting to today, absolutely positively has been accomplished.


Just how does an irrigation and sprinkler repair company increase in sales by over 450% in just one year when according to Forbes, nine out of ten startups fail and eight out of ten existing businesses fail? How can one company grow by 450% and one? Ladies and gentlemen, without any further ado, it is now time for get another edition of…

Speaker 25:

Wins of the week.

Speaker 26:

Doing the bull dance, feeling the flow. You can do it.


We are joined by none other than my brother from another mother, Mr. Josh, the founder of Living Water Irrigation. Mr. Josh, welcome on to the show, my friend. How are you?

Josh Wilson:

I’m awesome, Clay. How are you, sir?


Well, I’m excited for the listeners to get to know more about you. Could you share the name of your company, a little bit more about what you guys do at Living Water Irrigation, where the name comes from?

Josh Wilson:

Absolutely, positively. So Living Water Irrigation, the most important part of that to me is John 7:38. So it’s mentioned in the gospel a number of times we’re the living water, but our specific scripture that we drew our name from is John 7:38. It says, “Whoever believes in me, rivers of living water will flow through him.” We have a very distinct vision as a company on who we are and what we want to do. And I believe that I was put here to go make some money to give it away.


I’m not going to ask you for the specific details of your career and how you started the business up, as far as a linear timeline. But how long has this particular business been around?

Josh Wilson:

We’ve been around just two years, sir.


Two years. And you guys, we first met… How did we first meet?

Josh Wilson:

I came in and y’all started coaching me over the Thrive Time, over Thrive15.


And do you remember when that was approximately, and how you first heard about us?

Josh Wilson:

So it would’ve been October or November of ’17.


October or November of ’17.

Josh Wilson:

Yes, sir.


And in terms of your growth as a company, how much have you grown this year?

Josh Wilson:

So this year we’re up 450% year over year.


So now that you’re implementing this program, you’re getting more calls, right? Are you getting more calls?

Josh Wilson:



Sales are going up. You’re gathering reviews from your real customers, adding content to the website, adding a gallery of work.

Josh Wilson:

So I’m going to actually take a minute and make you really uncomfortable, Clay.



Josh Wilson:

So when we started with y’all, it was awesome. We had a little company, just me and one dude and one little van, and ’17 was great. I ate more than Ramen noodles, but not much more. ’18 was really good. We started to implement the systems, got start here, got the boom book, went to a couple conferences and said, “Okay, I’m going to buy in. I’m going to sell out.” We went to the coaching, got coached by Marshall and Victoria and started to implement as opposed to just listen, to actually be doers. It’s in James. It says, “Don’t just be hearers of the word, but be doers as well.” And so we implemented scripts, we implemented systems, we implemented checklist, we implemented a proforma for quoting and all these things that you talk about.

And so just as a real person, and I’m real, I promise you. There’s a bunch of Josh Wilsons out there, I’m a famous baseball player and football player, and a gospel singer.


Oh, whoa. Wow.

Josh Wilson:

But this Josh Wilson just digs ditches for a living. But I just want to say thank you [inaudible 00:35:30] standing here for all the systems. I encourage everybody out there, go pick up Start Here, go pick up The Boom Book, the stuff you hear on this show, it actually sincerely works. It’s not just some nonsensical guy sitting in an awesome man cave who’s bored so he wants to record a show. And then from there, here’s another super duper move for you. Schedule your day.


Oh, come, come… Wait, wait a second. That right there’s a hot tip. Holy cow. Schedule your day?

Josh Wilson:

So I was listening just a few months ago, and I was running all over the Tulsa metro area from Glenpool to Owasso to Broken Arrow back to Owasso, to Jinx, to Midtown. And I’m like, “Man, why am I getting nothing done?”


Why am I getting nothing done?


Well, your issue is that you’re running places. You got to drive.


Why am I talking using a megaphone? Back to you.

Josh Wilson:

Well, obviously I wouldn’t have this belly if I was running, Jonathan. So my wife says to me, “Hey, how was your day, honey?” “Oh, I worked all day. I did all these things.” And I’m like, “Wait, I have nothing to show that I did anything.” So super move number one, you’ve said it 17,000 times. Whatever gets scheduled gets done. So now my day is scheduled. So if it’s not on my schedule, nope, doesn’t happen.


Listen here, here’s little secret. You can become successful. You have the tools needed to start and grow a successful company, but you’ve got to implement the best practice systems. You have to implement the proven systems, checklists and processes that have been shown to work time and time again. And it is very hard for me to help you implement those systems if we don’t get a chance to know you. So if you’re out there today and you’re saying, “I feel stuck, I don’t know what to do,” I would encourage you to go to today, and watch over a thousand, we have a over a thousand video testimonials from real people, just like Josh. Watch those videos and build your faith. Believe that you can actually do this.

And then, do one of three things. One, you could schedule a one-on-one consultation with me by simply going to and scheduling that free 13-point assessment. Now, our team is going to vet you, make sure you’re not psychologically impaired or your dream is not delusional. Now, move number two. You could book your attendance at our in-person Thrive Time Show workshop. The tickets are normally $250, but if you want to attend the workshops because maybe you’re in a spot right now or financially you’re kind of strapped, just subscribe to the Thrive Time Show podcast and leave us an objective review. And after you leave us an objective review, take a screenshot of the review and email it to [email protected] and we’ll give you tickets for just $37.

Or maybe the Thrive Time Show Business School is the right move for you. Maybe it is. Listen, it’s only $19 a month. And when you subscribe to the Thrive Time Show Business School, here’s what you get. You get access to a massive amount of videos. We have over 3,000 training videos taught by the world’s business leaders. You can watch those videos, that alone has tremendous value. Also, also, you get to attend one in-person workshop per year. Now if you think about it, if you go to, I don’t know, Harvard, the average graduate debt sits at around $101,000. If you go to Oral Roberts University… let’s say you go to Tulsa University, you’re going to spend $35,855 per year.

If you go to the Harvard Business School, you’re going to spend $66,000 per year. If you go to the Wharton Business School, you’re going to spend $64,828 per year. If you subscribe to the Thrive Time Show Business School, it’s month to month, and it’s as little as $19 a month. Check it out today by going to

And now without further ado, we’d like to end each and every show and win of the week with a boom, because boom stands for big, overwhelming optimistic momentum. And now, if any further ado, here we go. 3, 2, 1, boom.

Speaker 28:

The Thrive Time Show two-day interactive business workshops are the highest and most reviewed business workshops on the planet.


You can learn the proven 13-point business systems that Dr. Zellner and I have used over and over to start and grow successful companies. When we get into the specifics, the specific steps on what you need to do to optimize your website, we’re going to teach you how to fix your conversion rate. Now, we’re going to teach you how to do a social media marketing campaign that works. How do you raise capital? How do you get a small business loan? We teach you everything you need to know here during a two-day, 15-hour workshop. It’s all here for you. You work every day in your business, but for two days, you can escape and work on your business and build these proven systems. So now you can have a successful company that will produce both the time freedom and the financial freedom that you deserve. You’re going to leave energized, motivated, but you’re also going to leave empowered.

The reason why I’ve built these workshops is because as an entrepreneur, I always wish that I had this. And because there wasn’t anything like this, I would go to these motivational seminars, no money down real estate ponzi scheme, get motivated seminars, and they would never teach me anything. It was like you went there and you paid for the big chocolate Easter Bunny, but inside of it was a hollow nothingness. And I wanted the knowledge. And they’re like, oh, but we’ll teach you the knowledge after our next workshop. And the great thing is, we have nothing to upsell. At every workshop, we teach you what you need to know. There’s no one in the back of the room trying to sell you some next big get-rich-quick walk on hot coals product.

It’s literally, we teach you the brass tacks, the specific stuff that you need to know to learn how to start and grow a business. And I encourage you to not believe what I’m saying. And I want you to Google the Z66 auto auction. I want you to Google “elephant in the room.” Look at Robert Zellner and Associates. Look them up and say, are they successful because they’re geniuses, or are they successful because they have a proven system? When you do that research, you will discover that the same system that we use in our own business can be used in your business. Come to Tulsa, book a ticket, and I guarantee you it’s going to be the best business workshop ever, and we’ll even give you your money back if you don’t love it. We’ve built this facility for you and we’re excited to see you.


Let us know what's going on.
