Speaker 1:


Clay Clark:

My name’s Clay Clark and I’m looking to hire great people like you. I grew up poor, became un-poor at a very young age, and I built many successful companies. I’ve built I’ve built I’ve built I’ve helped to scale I’ve helped to scale I’ve built I’ve built the Thrive Time Show podcast. I’ve written 20 books. But the point is, I’m looking to hire great people like you, and you might say, “Well, what’s it like to work in your office environment?” That’s a great question.

D. Tucker:

My name is D. Tucker and I’ve known Clay for going on about five years now. I’m the lead designer here at Thrive and working with Clay, Clay is an anomaly. If Thrive is a set of principles, watching Clay is like watching the standard. It can be an amazing experience just being around him.

Clay Clark:

So, what you’re going to see now is some testimonials from longtime employees or employees we’ve had over the years, who share what it’s like to work in the environment, because I would hate for you to invest your time in coming to a job interview to work for a company that you don’t want to work at.

Victoria Woods:

My name is Victoria Woods and I’ve been working with Clay for about two years. Working with Clay has definitely been an experience. You learn something new every single day. You’re always moving forward. Since working with Clay, I have learned so many different things, not only in terms of business knowledge, but in my personal life as well. Honestly, it would be really hard to go in and list the different things that I’ve learned. But I do feel that I’m at a place now where I could go anywhere if I chose to, and be really successful thanks to the things that I’ve learned from working with Clay.

Clay Clark:

Basically what I do as a business consultant at this particular company, Make Your Life Epic, is I help grow businesses. So, business owners reach out to us at They find us through our podcast or they find us as a referral from friends and family, and I sit down with business owners and I help them to scale their company.

Marshall Morris:

My Name is Marshall Morris and I’ve known Clay Clark for the past nine years. Up here in the office, I serve as one of the business coaches and over the past nine years it has been fantastic. So, in the time that I’ve been working with Clay, I’ve learned a whole capacity of different things. In fact, I think that that’s one of the most differentiating things up here in the office, is how many different things that you can learn. I’ve learned search engine optimization, sales skills… Clay is one of the best sales trainers in the world. As well as website development, managing people, managing clients expectations, these are all invaluable skills that you can learn up here in the office and that Clay’s taught me.

Clay Clark:

So, we have to teach you as an employee, if you come work here, search engine optimization, web development, videography, photography, online ad management, accounting, bookkeeping, workflow design, you’re going to have to learn all that stuff.


My name is Jordan [inaudible 00:03:23], I’m on the design team at Thrive, and working with Clay is really unpredictable, dynamic. It’s kind of like working for Mr. Miyagi combined with Eminem. The biggest thing that I’ve learned from Clay is the concept of trade-offs. So, sacrificial work ethic, you have to give something to get something. Clay is extremely self-assured. He is unapologetically himself all the time. He’s hilarious.

Clay Clark:

So, now without further ado, here are some long time employees sharing what it’s like to work with me. And again, I’ve been doing this since 2005, so I know what I’m doing. I just need great people like you to work with me so that we can help our clients have massive growth.

Speaker 2:

So, I am the call center manager for Elephant in the Room, which Clay co-owns and coaches on a weekly basis. Clay has been awesome. I would say he is my GOAT, my greatest of all time. He’s been a really solid mentor. I’ve learned a lot of information about how to be a better leader in a very short amount of time. Since working with Clay, I have definitely learned a lot about how to be a better leader, how to be a more solid manager, how to motivate my team, empower my team, how to hold my team accountable, and also how to help them bring that enthusiasm that makes our work culture so awesome.

Speaker 3:

And basically what it’s like to work with Clay, is it’s hard at times but also extremely rewarding. You learn something new every single day. Through the process of the eight months that I’ve worked here, I’ve learned more than I did when I was in college for business. So, you learn a lot and you learn, not just about business, but also life experience as well. So, it can go in two different ways and it’s fantastic. I would describe Clay’s personality as somewhat eccentric. He is very determined, he’s consistent, he’s hilarious, he’s extremely hardworking and he just loves to get things done. He’s a grinder and he really loves to see progress and success in his employees and in his clients.

Paul Mathurin:

My name is Paul Mathurin and I’ve known Clay for about a year, specifically since February 2016. My role with the company is that of a business coach and getting to work closely with Clay, it’s a great learning experience at all times because he’s like an interactive book, just an infinite source of knowledge. Working with Clay has inspired me to do many things, business wise and in my personal life. One of the greatest things that I’ve gained from Clay is to wake up earlier every day. So, I wake up two hours earlier every day and it’s gifted me over a month of my life of 24 hour days over the course of a year. And in that time I’ve managed to be very productive in reading books and getting [inaudible 00:06:13] done for clients and just generally improving my quality of life. If you don’t know Clay, I would describe him to you in very few words. He loves life, he loves energy, he loves passion, he loves positivity and he loves winning. Most importantly, Clay knows what he wants.

Speaker 4:

My role at the company is in sales and scheduling. Since I’ve been working with Clay, I’ve really learned that the only limitations that I have are the ones that I put on myself. I would describe Clay’s personality as a giraffe. He’s a big picture thinker and a big thinker. So, if he asks you a question, he usually has this very specific reason why and you just might not know what that is for a while until it applies to you. The teammates and employees that work with Clay are people who have vision, drive, ambition, and they know where they’re going, they know their goals. So, that’s been really amazing.

Clay’s passion for helping business owners is really like tunnel vision, in a good way though. He’s so determined to help his clients win. I would characterize Clay’s management style as a strong leader. He really wants you to go as far as you want to go and he’s going to help you get there. The kind of people that would not like working with Clay would be anyone who lacks ambition or is unwilling to change or grow. The advice that I’ll give to someone that’s going to meet Clay for the first time would be, come hungry, bring your A-game and be intentional about your questions and your time with him.

Clay Clark:

So, now you’ve heard about what we do from our employees, but now let’s hear from our customers so they can share with you how we help them to grow their companies. And that’s why we’re looking to hire great people like you so we can help them grow their companies. So, now without further ado, here are clients testimonials of how we’ve helped them to grow their businesses dramatically.

Dr. Mark Moore:

Hi, I’m Dr. Mark Moore. I’m a pediatric dentist. Through our new digital marketing plan, we have seen a market 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.

Clay Clark:

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 trains 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 empire… 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’s Dr. [inaudible 00:10:42], who is sharing about how this system has changed his life and his business’s 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 Colaw Fitness. Today I want to tell you a little bit about Clay Clark and how I know Clay Clark. Clay Clark 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. This kind of guy has worked in every single industry. He’s written books with Lee Cockerell, head of Disney, with the 40,000 cast members. He’s friends with like 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.

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 kind of comes off sometimes aa socially awkward, but he’s so brilliant and he’s taught me so much. When I say that… Clay is like… 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 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 an 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… 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 it 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 dollars 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 sales people for the last 10 years here with Shaw Homes, and 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. I mean, 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 Homes, 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 D 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 full-time, 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 credits 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.

Dr. 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 are 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 & Wellness Clinic.

Steve Currington:

Hey, Clay Clark and my Thrive peeps. It’s Steve Currington, 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 ThriveTime 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. [inaudible 00:24:53], and everybody for all the help in helping us grow our business. And hopefully buy more Lamborghini like this, the more we sell. So, appreciate it guys. See ya.


I’m Rachel with Tip Top K9, and we just want to give a huge thank you to Clay and Vanessa Clark.


Hey guys, I’m Ryan with Tip Top K9. 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 a few years ago. This is our old neighborhood. See, it’s 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 thousand.


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 5:

… [inaudible 00:26:55], they said it couldn’t be done. They said you couldn’t fill up to be okay soon. They said it wasn’t possible, but yet if you look, it appears to be full. Oh, we’re making America boom again.

Speaker 6:

Very, very full.

Speaker 5:

Very… Oh, very full. Lots of marketing courtesy of John Kelly and Devin and Darling…

Speaker 6:

And this [inaudible 00:27:16]…

Speaker 5:

And this [inaudible 00:27:17] and this hat. So, there it is. Happy [inaudible 00:27:20]. Sold out, baby. Oh.

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 salespeople 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 has been an amazing experience for us.

Nick Smith:

My name is Nick Smith and I’m an agency owner with Farmers 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 and if I wanted to do anything… A couple of 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 Wheel 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, 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, decline, declining. And now we’re back up and we’re back over what we were a couple of 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 kind of culminated into this big successful business that I feel like I have now. All that stuff has just been life altering.

Speaker 7:

Clay’s awesome. He’s very entertaining, very energized, does some quirky, unique ways to sort of 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 kind of created this sort of “what’s going to happen next?” And so, just that risk taking sort of 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 [inaudible 00:31:49]. 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 Druker:

My name is David Druker, the President for UPS Stores Canada. Also a member of the [inaudible 00:32:06] in our 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. And 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 8:

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. The really great sense of humor, very lively, very engaging and interesting. And 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 9:

Oh, I love Clay. Very funny. You never know, with a keynote speaker, you don’t know… So, you got to kind of 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 million corporations.” I liked it. It was really well done. The guy’s good.

Speaker 10:

Clay’s fantastic. I mean, the guy is hilarious, captivating, kept the room moving. I mean, I love the fact that he got everybody up and moving. The fact that you could get John [inaudible 00:34:26] 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 putting 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 B.I.G. 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… I mean, 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 11:

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 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 all recognized.” So, probably what I took away from her 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 with 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’ve 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. It actually… Everything that they said when we came in for our initial meeting to today, absolutely, positively has been accomplished.
