Get ready to enter the Thrivetime Show! We started from the bottom, now we’re here. We started from the bottom and we’ll show you how to get here. We started from the bottom, now we’re here. We started from the bottom, now we’re here. We started from the bottom, now we’re on the top. Teaching you the systems to hear what we got. Cullen Dixon’s on the hooks, I’ve written the books. He’s bringing some wisdom and the good looks. As a father of five, that’s where I’mma dive. So if you see my wife and kids, please tell them hi. It’s C and Z up on your radio. And now, three, two, one, here we go. We started from the bottom, now we’re here. We started from the bottom, and that’s what we gotta do. I’m going to read you guys, if you’re watching this, I’m going to read you three quotes here that I think are just totally hammering home the importance of this. You have one here, it says Thomas Edison. This is the guy who many consider to be the most important and most successful inventor out there. He says that vision without execution is a hallucination. Well, there you go. You have a big dream, but you’re not breaking into a to-do list, you’re hallucinating. Well, then you go on here and the book of the richest man in town written by W. Randall Jones, he says, you have to execute or get executed. Like if you don’t get done, love that quote, execute or get executed. So now here’s here’s where the distraction comes in. And I’m going to read this quote to you by Steven Spielberg. And I want to get your feedback on it. Steven Spielberg is probably known as being the most successful film director, screenwriter, producer of his day. I mean, or of any day he’s, he’s legendary. He says technology can be our best friend and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. Stephen, what? He says it interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful because we’re too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria to the office on the cell phone. personal story on this. I love my wife. Okay, we’ve had four children as proof of that love. Okay, now she is wanting to have a special moment with me a couple nights ago. We’re in California. I’m getting set up because I wake up at 4 o’clock in the morning and I’m like, you know, ready to go with things to go. And so I want to have it queued up with my audible, what book I’m going to go on. I usually have it twice as fast or three times as fast. And my wife looks over at that and shuts her down and I got to hug my pillow that night. Because you were just… I was so absorbed in the technology and she is competing with that technology as if it’s the mistress that I’m in love with. Whoa, that’s got deep right there. That’s deep. That’s like we’re at the bottom of the deep end of the pool and we’re digging to get deeper. Now here’s the key. Here’s the tie in with it. Business is primarily nurturing relationships. That’s what business is. You’re nurturing relationships so they come back to want to relate to you more and more. So what we do is we get so almost sidetracked with the technology that it drains our creative energy that we’re not focused on that most important thing that needs to be given birth that day for us to move our business forward. So if we’re talking about mapping out our day, what’s an action step you recommend every Thriver starts doing right now? If they’ve never done it before, what’s something you need to start doing every day? What kind of action steps to map out your day? Okay, write down three of the most important things you want to do that day. You’ve got to, you will not go lay down your bed until you get those three things done. Okay. Now what’s important here is make sure that you don’t have as one of your goals, I’m going to read War and Peace. Because that’s like a project that’s got about 12,000 steps in it. Okay, it’s a very long book. So make sure that your things you can do can be done in that day, but just be careful writing down 29 different things here. Write down the very most important things you’ve got to do. Chet Holmes, bestselling author of the book Ultimate Sales Machine. He says six. He’ll say six. Other people you might talk to say five or 10. The point is, write down things on your list that you can actually do. Or if it’s a big goal, break it up into parts that you can get done. So you have a sense of accomplishment there. So you’ll get some momentum. Now moving on to step eight. Keep your goals in front and focus on them. Now, Tim, I’m going to read you a statistic here from Gary Keller’s best-selling book, The One Thing. He writes, in 2008, the Dominican University of California and Dr. Gail Matthews recruited 267 participants, not 268, 267 participants from a wide variety of professions and countries. Those who wrote down their goals were 39.5% more likely to accomplish them. There’s all sorts of stats that show similar things. But the point is, when you write your goals down, you put them in front, you get them done more often. Is this what you’ve experienced? How your brain works here, if you ask your brain something, it will begin to solve it. So writing it down, you involve your senses with it. Now this may sound more scientific than what we’re going to mean, but you’re right, you’re getting your senses, your eye gate there, you get your muscles going, your brain’s involved in it, and you make it really clear what you’re shooting for, and you’re even at a subconscious level, you’re going to want to start to solve that. When we don’t give ourselves a target, we find ourselves drifting. And how many of our beloved thrivers have finished the day saying, what happened to this day? What did I do? I’ve done that myself. Now, so that you want to write it down to engage your brain to begin to solve that thing. And it’s very important. I like to, I have everything on Google, Google calendar here, but I also have a calendar that I carry with me, a hand calendar that I write everything down with, but I don’t have access to the Google, and I’ve got in that, I’ve got my, I’ve got my to-do list where I’m really, I’m focused on what is it I’m going to get done that day. Yeah, I love it. I will just tell you, I have yet to meet a successful entrepreneur who does not do this concept of writing down their goals and putting it out in front of them in some way. I’ve just, I’ve never seen it happen. I probably never will see it happen. Clay just watching you do this and your obsession with this has has just lit a fire Under my rear to get me going on this. I mean, I want to I want to thank you for Reminding me of that because your obsession with that and people do call you crazy I’ve talked to these guys the guys in these camp. They look crazy, too But anyway, you know that your obsession with that is contagious and it’s helped me to say that’s what the game’s all about I love having a to-do list too because you have those little pockets of time like 10 minutes while you’re getting on a subway to go from A to B or you’re riding a taxi or maybe you’re walking somewhere where now again this is not like what Steven Spielberg was talking about when you’re supposed to be enjoying a walk with your wife and maybe I’m trying to get something done. The point is that you find time to get those things done. With my kids, I’ll put down things I need to get done with my kids. So I really want to read the Walt Disney story to my kids right now. So I have it on my to-do list and we had a little pocket of time so we spent a half hour doing that. But the whole idea is just scheduling and ordaining your destiny one item at a time. Beautiful. Now, Tim, I’m going to skip down here. I want to read you a couple things here from this Forbes article on October 3rd, 2013 called 12 things successful people do every day. Find success by solidifying goals that are smart. Smart, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. Again that’s smart, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. We’ll just kind of go into each one. We’ll do kind of a lightning round here. So smart, what does it mean in your mind to have a smart goal on your to-do list? Okay, well, the S, I like to say the S is very specific. Okay. S for specific. So it’s not, you know, I want to improve humanity’s welfare for, you know. We’re going to improve humanity today. It’s very specific. It’s down to say, I’m going to drink eight glasses of water during the day. So I know it’s very specific, it’s eight glasses of water. It’s how many of them. I know if I reached it or not. It’s specific enough. It’s clear enough for me to go after that goal. Also, I will say with SMART, I want to add some clarity to this as well. A little anecdotal from my life. I’ve discovered SMART goals are things that need to be done, and dumb goals are things that don’t need to be done. I’ve got a guy right now who texts me all the time. He wants me to hang out with him. He’s a bad dude. This dude is not a high-quality person. He knows that he’s not a high-quality person. He does some pretty shady stuff. He’s always, hey, we should get together. I won’t get together. If it ever makes its way onto my to-do list to get together with him, shame on me for putting a dumb goal on there. And you mentioned specific. That also ties into being measurable. It’s something where you can say, OK, either I got it done or I didn’t. Attainable, that’s something that you can actually accomplish? Right, yeah. I’m going to build a $100 million business. To date. And if you are not even at $100,000 on an annual basis then is that a is that obtainable? Right now it’s not saying that you can’t have that in the future But but don’t bite off more than you can chew this is different than dreaming the dreaming is where you make that big Visualization now we’re getting into the specifics of doing it so I want to make sure if you’re watching this Do you feel like it’s maybe contradicting? It’s really not it’s just you’re dreaming over here where there’s no limits But now you’re doing things within limits because you have to get it done And if you if you’re trying to get it done and you overwhelm yourself with cramming too much or it’s too big, it hasn’t been broken down enough, you’re going to get overwhelmed and you’ll find yourself thrown in the towel. Now, the next thing is realistic. That kind of ties into what you just said there. It’s important that we have things that we can actually get done in a day. And then the final is timely. Tim, tell me about… It’s time activated. Why is it so important that we schedule a time to get something done and not just say, well, today I’m going to get this done. Why is it important that we take that extra step and schedule a specific time to do each item? You’ve heard the old antidote about taking a vacation. Yeah. And the three days before a vacation are the absolutely most productive, intense days that we work on. You know, it’s time activated that I’m going to jump on the plane and be with my family for this week here. So it’s time activated. If you give yourself a deadline that you’re going to die unless you hit that deadline, you’re not motivated by that. So you want to time activate to really make sure where you are. Are you on track? Are you behind? Are you ahead of track on that? You’ve got to give yourself a time to say, this needs to be done time. Otherwise, you know, whenever you get it done, you’ve reached your goal. But the world’s spinning right now at a thousand miles an hour. Did you know that? By the way, I did not know that. Is this is this is this a real thing? Yes, it’s 24000 miles around the Ecuador in the equator. I’ve been to the nation of Ecuador or something, but around the equator is 24000 miles around the earth. And so it takes one day for it to spin around entirely. So it’s kind of a lot. Getting dizzy just thinking about it. A thousand miles an hour. Right now, you’re traveling a thousand miles an hour. You don’t even know it. I feel like I don’t. You want to realize that. So you want to get up and go get after it. This is what we’re doing. So you got to timestamp that puppy. Now I’m going to go ahead and give you a stat here that I want to share with the thrivers. This is, again, comes from Thomas Corley in his incredible book, which is called Rich Habits, The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals. He found that 62% of wealthy people keep their goals out in front. And then when you look at Gary Keller in his quote, he says, when you’re supposed to be working, work, and when you’re supposed to be playing, play. The idea is that you want to be present. Whatever you’re supposed to be doing, you need to be doing that with great intensity whether it’s on a conversation. You’re on a date Be on a date Means you’re not also emailing you’re on a date Augmandino this guy has sold over 50 million copies of his books and even though we’re in a digital age with social media and all these Distractions and things he says it is those who concentrate on but one thing at a time who advance in the world Tim it sounds like what we’re talking about here is wake up every day and define all the things you want to get done, set a time to do it, and focus on one item at a time, right? That’s how you get big success is one item at a time. Yeah, it’s as simple as that. There’s a whole myth of multitasking, that there’s a shutdown when you try to do more than one thing at a time. You actually shut down parts of your brain, and it takes so many minutes to get back warmed up to where you were on that. And we find ourselves being very distracted and doing nothing. Now, we’re moving on to the next step, step number nine. This is maintain and optimize your health. Now, Tim and I are obviously not fitness experts, okay, but I will tell you, we want to talk about this because it’s super important. Tim, there was an article that appeared in Forbes on October 22nd of 2014. It says, five reasons why good fitness makes for better entrepreneurial leadership. And that show that, basically they found research that shows that fit leaders are better leaders in the following five ways. Amazing. Energy and productivity, confidence and creativity. They’re very good at facing challenges. They have great mental wellness, and they also have influence. So Tim, I want to ask you this. As far as energy and productivity, throughout your career, how have you noticed that the more fit, I’m not talking about everyone being a super fitness guru, but how have you noticed that the more fit leaders have been able to have increased energy and productivity. Yeah, I mean your fluids are moving around your body that much more as the healthy. You know, when you are thinking about building a business, you’re really solving problems. It’s a series of solving problems here and you’ve got to have energy greater than the problem for you to begin to overcome it. What a lot of people do is they find themselves with low energy. They fill themselves up with these high glycemic carbohydrates. They get lazy, want to take a nap. And they don’t have the energy level equal or greater than the problem. And they find themselves kowtowing to the problem. Ah, no, who cares? I am serious about this because this right here, if you’re watching this, the chances are about half the people watching this right now struggle with this in some way. Yeah. And so don’t feel bad. It’s just something we have to bring up. It’s just just like making a day timer. This is important. This is an activity you want to schedule time for. Confidence and creativity. Tim, how does being physically fit help entrepreneurs with their confidence and creativity? Well, I mean, you know, you think about your brain and your thinking processes. You know, if you’re in better shape, you’re breathing, you’re providing more oxygen to your brain, you’re going to think better. It’s literally a physiological thing that happens there, but also your whole attitude. When you feel like, when you get up early, and one of my recommendations here is like, It’s a half hour, an hour, it’s 15 minutes there, 15 minutes back. Just sit down, do 200 crunches, do 50 push-ups, it’s done in 5 minutes, you get your blood flowing. That’s what I did on the way out here myself. I fasted from a little bit of sleep last night. So it’s going to give you that confidence, it’s going to stir yourself up where you’re ready to take on the challenge again The big battle is if you perceive the problem as being bigger than you you’re going to kowtow to it You’re going to give in to it. It’s you’re not gonna. You’re not gonna think that there’s a there’s a way around this now According to there’s some powerful statistics. I want to share with the thrivers here This is from rich habits Institute comm a great site Dave Ramsey’s a super fan of this site. So Dave Ramsey is always talking about this. Dave Ramsey is a self-help author if you’re watching this and you’re a radio talk show host. But he says 70% of wealthy people eat less than 300 junk food calories a day. What? 70% of wealthy people eat less than 300 junk food calories per day. 97% of poor people eat more than 300 junk food calories a day. Do you see a correlation there? So, Tim, I mean, Thomas Jefferson then hammers home. He’s a former president and former founding father. He says health is worth more than learning. I read that quote. I’m thinking, wow, that is absolutely brilliant. I mean, because we’re into learning. That’s what we do. That’s what Thrive is. But yet the statistics are overwhelming. Then Thomas Jefferson is sharing this, and I’m going to give you another statistic here. This is one I’ve been doing some pretty intense research on my own. I went off the reservation. I didn’t run it by the Thrive Board. And what I found was that 100% of the people that are dead, they’re not actually able to pursue their passions. Wait, wait, wait. Has that been statistically and clinically proven? It’s a mystical statistical. Okay. It’s all inspired. I’ll buy into that. And so, but they can’t increase their profits, they can’t make to-do lists, they can’t spend time with family. I mean, there’s a lot of things that dead people can’t do. They can’t read a book, they can’t go to the beach, they can’t… There’s a lot of things. I don’t want to get into all of them. There’s just a lot of research I’ve been doing here. So what I’m saying is, you have to take care of yourself. Yeah, phenomenal thought here. There’s this pastor, this huge 250,000 person church in Bogota, Colombia. And there’s this famous pastor, preacher who’s there and he says, Tell me about priorities. What are the priorities? What should be the order? He said, number one, your relationship with God, you know, because how can you speak from the public pulpit if you don’t have a private relationship? Okay, great. He said, number two, now I would figure number two would be about your wife and your kids and us He said number two the second most important priority is your body He said because it’s your only ticket to stay on this planet Your body your body only ticket to stay on this planet And so you want you want to look at this as something you keep healthy Because you’re gonna come in there your business growth is gonna require you to be confident to be creative to be to be energetic You’ve got to be bigger than the problems that come your way and you’ve got to be alive Alive alive alive with a fire of desire. Ha okay. Let’s move it on here now. We’re moving on now We at Leonardo da Vinci this guy’s a legendary check this out. Let me just read some of the stuff He was good at don’t freak out. Oh, he was a painter a sculptor, an architect, a musician, a mathematician, an engineer, an inventor, an… Anna… Thomas? Yeah, he pulled up dead bodies from the grave and he’d dissect them. That’s exciting. He’s a geologist, a cartographer, a botanist, and a… Anyway, this guy was busy, and he says a well-spent day brings happy sleep. Tim, it’s important that we take care of our bodies and that we make sure that we treat it more like a temple and not like a bowling alley. Is that right? I mean, right? I mean, you… I’m a little distracted at the metaphor here, but… Yeah, maybe you take care of your bowling alley. I just typically don’t. I typically will put gum on the bottom of a chair and I’ll… Well, look at the kind of food that’s served at a bowling alley. That’s the kind of food you don’t want to do to build your business. And if you have a bowling alley and that is your business, then you can make choices on that. But, you know, you’ve got to have energy and confidence to move forward, to hover over… We’re going to have to stop. Well, I think we can keep going. He is fired. You’re not allowed back here. We’ve got a rogue camera guy who’s getting off reservation. We’re going to keep together. I’m moving on to step number 10. I don’t know what to play with. So here we go. We’re moving on. Refuse to procrastinate. Now Tim, procrastination kills business owners. It seems as though this issue of paralysis by analysis is a huge problem. Tim, the guy that a lot of people will call the best hockey player of all time, Wayne Gretzky, he says procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy. You work with clients all the time. I work with clients all the time. They’ll come into a meeting. You haven’t seen them in seven days, maybe a month. You’ll say, did you get the job done? And they’ll say, nope. And it’s usually something different. It’s usually like, well, this week someone was sick and I had some stuff I was working on and we’ve been kind of… But the point is, you’ll start to see they just don’t get anything done. There’s that procrastination. It’s almost like a spirit of procrastination that’s over them. What would you say to somebody on the other end of the camera over here who’s watching this, who’s just been, like, they’ve kind of labeled themselves as, I am a procrastinator. Well, it’s, you know, you, you become what you do. And, but I believe going back to the visualization and what you’re saying to yourself about yourself, you’re an action person. If you want to be successful, it will require you to overcome procrastination. And procrastination is just a mindset to say, I require it to be done perfectly the first time. Perfectionism breeds procrastination. And the fear of failure and all these close cousins of that. And that’s not true. What is truth here is that you are destined for massive wealth. Wealth is built on the foundation of learning. Learning is putting motion in your life. Learning comes when you’re in motion. I want to say something real quick too, for the Thrivers watching this. Clifton Talbert, who’s been an unbelievable mentor of mine, he’s one of our Thrive mentors, Clifton’s a best-selling author. I remember I’d been working on a book it probably been two years into it and Clifton says well You know you need to break it up into a certain number of pages a day that you can commit to And I thought wow that was I never thought about that and it might seem just simple So I started just committing down to write two or three pages every single day and I thought well How long will that take I mean you’re right two or three good pages that might take an hour So I realized I’m gonna take an hour every day. And then it was, when am I going to do that? And just breaking it into those very specific steps is what’s always kind of helped me whenever I get stuck in a rut. So I know for Thrive, we have a ton of legal agreements. There’s just legal agreements everywhere. And I know for me, I just can’t stand legal agreements. I hate paperwork. But if I go, okay, I’m going to get this agreement done this day, how long will it take? I’m okay. But when I just look at the big sea of legal agreements and say, I’m going to get all of them done. It’s overwhelming, you don’t get a lot done there. And so I want to read you this quote from Gary Keller. He says, extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus. And that to me was so liberating when I read that because I thought, I’m going to take this nasty legal agreements, plural, and turn it into a specific item. And so for the people watching this, I know we talked about it a little bit with day planning and day Mapping out your day if I’m watching this and I am somebody who’s chronically in that rut and I struggle to focus Would you recommend that I maybe change my geography my place my location? What would you recommend I do so I get out of that rut is it maybe just getting a different office environment? Is it is it just kind of maybe a rearrange of my schedule? What would you say to someone who’s chronically stuck? Right. Sometimes just changing your environment is great. You may do your workout in the cafeteria or you may do it in your car before you come in and all the noise starts coming from all the office. What’s important is for you to think through and for you to be able to chunk down a small enough thing, done in a day, but chalk it down so you can get something done in 10 minutes or 15 minutes. Can you… well, Tim, I’ve got to do a lot of those things. You know, the motivation is like a muscle. We mentioned that here. Procrastination can be like a muscle where you just… it builds and you’ve got all this procrastination muscle, you can’t even move around. So, just start creating motion. What’s important here is just create motion in it. Create motion in it. That’s the whole key. I like this quote from Gauti. It says, whenever you have something, you dream something, just begin it. Just begin it. Boldness has that genius and power and magic in it. Who is that quote by? Gauti. Some guy by the name of Gauti. He’s a guy that wrote some poems and write, play recs. So he’s a writer, but it’s a powerful thought of just begin. So what I, to break procrastination in my life, what I’ve had to do, Clay, is I’ve had to break it down small enough for me to start action on something. I always find my biggest dreams require the smallest actions, and if I just keep that in mind it works and I want to what did you just say there my biggest dreams require my smallest actions beautiful that’s like the thing that always always helps me now Gary Keller I’m gonna give you one more quote and then we’re gonna hop on to the next point here he says the people who achieve extraordinary results don’t achieve them working more hours they achieve them by getting more done in the hours they work I’m gonna I have found that I cannot work in my house. At all. I can’t. I can get my bath there. I can do my planning for the day, but I can’t work there. Why? My kids, I have five kids, they come in and say, Dad, what’s the meaning of life? Dad, how come this? How come that? Dad, where’s my shoe? Dad, where, you know, what are we going to eat? I can’t think. And I, no matter what I do, I can’t think. And then when I, and then when I finally, if the kids aren’t there, I’m like, I’ll work from home today. So I sit down and my stapler’s missing and my printer’s been unplugged and my computer. Distraction. Yeah, and it’s just, I can’t. So for me, I can get more done in one hour at the office at four in the morning than I can with seven hours at home. And so I think if you’re watching this and you’re struggling to get stuff done, understand there’s only a certain number of hours in the day. You just have to find out how to get more done during that time. Don’t feel like the answer is always more and more time. Now we’re moving on to step number 11, networking consistently. Network consistently. Tim, as an entrepreneur, I know it’s very possible to get so focused on achieving our goals that we forget the importance of networking. And so I’m going to just give an onslaught of statistics and quotes here. And I’m going to go to you to kind of maybe illustrate some examples of this but 79% of wealthy people network five hours or more each month Versus 18% of poor people again according to rich habits Institute calm where Dave Ramsey comments a lot on these things. That’s crazy 79% of wealthy people are networking five hours a month versus 16% of the poor now Oprah Winfrey here, she says surround yourself with people who are going to lift you higher. Now Napoleon Hill, this is the author of Think and Grow Rich, he says right here, this is an action step, ally yourself with a group of as many people as you may need for the creation and carrying out of your plan or plans for the accumulation of money. Compliance with this instruction is absolutely essential do not Neglect it Tim. I’m gonna say this here. We go. It’s a confession. I’m gonna make to the Thrivers worldwide I Don’t like networking I Went to church this Sunday, and what I try to do is to make eye contact with as few people as possible. I honestly do this. I go in and I’ll try to not make eye contact and I’ll do little games and I don’t even realize I’m doing it until my wife points it out, but I’ve just become extremely anti-social. I will park as far away as I can from other people. I’ll try to get there a little bit later so I can sit in the very back because I know that networking causes me to follow up or I’m a bad networker. Hey Thrivers, I want you to find out where Clay goes to church, and I want you to destroy this habit. Well, let me tell you what, Witt George, who’s one of our Thrive mentors, and he is the actually the pastor. Yeah, he’s one of the top pastors of the church at Church on the Move, where I go. Okay. He says he’s tired of creating a church of consumers, and he wants to create a community where people interact. And I’m like, did he make that rule for me? Is that like the Clay Clark is a bad person rule? But I know that naturally, I just tend to, I don’t, I could go weeks without socializing with other people. So can you talk to me though, why it’s important we don’t just get stuck in our home office or get stuck in the office and we don’t get stuck there where we’re not networking. Why is it so important that we ally ourself with people and surround ourselves with people that can help us. Yeah. Getting on stack, when you realize that business is primarily the process of nurturing relationships, where you’re going to get ideas, perspectives, you’re going to get contacts, that somebody knows somebody who knows somebody, and you’ve covered about 86% of the world with that. That business growth, your own development, your growth, is going to happen by these interactions here. And there’s two extremes. There is more the introverted, and I’ll tend to be that way a little bit. That’s how I tend to be if I let myself. Where, you know, see you later, you know, and I hope I don’t see you later kind of thing. So we have that thing going on, and then we have other people that are like the sanguine, they’re a portable party, they’re going everywhere, they’re friends with everybody and they network, but there’s no intelligence in their network. There’s just, hey, how you doing? And there’s no substantive discussions, there’s no follow up with this, there’s just, I just want to feel good being around people. And so those are two extremes there that will work against you building wealth. You’ve got to understand that business is all about building and nurturing relationships. JT, do you know what time it is? 410. It’s TiVo time in Tulsa, Roseland, baby. Tim TiVo is coming to Tulsa, Oklahoma June 27 and 28. We’ve been doing business conferences here since 2005. I’ve been hosting business conferences since 2005. What year were you born? 1995. Dude, I’ve been hosting business conferences since you were 10 years old, but I’ve never had the two-time Heisman Award winning Tim Tebow come present. And a lot of people have followed Tim Tebow’s football career on the field and off the field. And off the field, the guy’s been just as successful as he has been on the field. Now, the big question is, JT, how does he do it? Well, they’re going to have to come and find out, because I don’t know. Well, I’m just saying, Tim Tebow is going to teach us how he organizes his day, how he organizes his life, how he’s proactive with his faith, his family, his finances. He’s going to walk us through his mindset that he brings into the gym, into business. It is going to be a blasty blast in Tulsa, Russia. Also, this is the first Thrive Time Show event that we’ve had where we’re going to have a man who has built a hundred million dollar net worth. Wow. Who’ll be presenting. Now we’ve had a couple presenters that have had a billion dollar net worth in some like a real estate sort of things. Yeah. But this is the first time we’ve had a guy who’s built a service business and he’s built over a hundred million dollar net worth in the service business. It’s the yacht driving, multi-state living guru of franchising Peter Taunton will be in the house. This is the founder of Snap Fitness, the guy behind nine round boxing. He’s going to be here in Tulsa, Russel Oklahoma June 27th and 28th. JT, why should everybody want to hear what Peter Taunton has to say? Oh because he’s incredible. He’s just a fountain of knowledge. He is awesome. He’s inspired me listening to him talk and not only that he also has he practices what he teaches so he’s a real teacher he’s not a fake teacher like business school teachers so you gotta come learn from him. Also let me tell you this folks I don’t get this wrong because if I get it wrong someone’s gonna say you screwed that up buddy so Michael Levine this is Michael Levine he’s gonna be coming he said who’s Michael Levine I don’t get this wrong this is the PR consultant of choice for Michael Jackson Prince for Nike for Charlton Heston for Nancy Kerrigan, 34 Grammy Award winners, 43 New York Times bestselling authors he’s represented, including pretty much everybody you know who’s been a super celebrity.

The way I do our conferences is we tell people it’s $250 to get a ticket or whatever price that you can afford. The reason why I do that is I grew up without money. JT, you’re in the process of building a super successful company. Did you start out with a million dollars in the bank account? No, I did not. Nope, did not get any loans, nothing like that. Did not get an inheritance from parents, anything like that. I had to work for it and I’m super grateful I came to a business conference.

I’ve represented a lot of major stars and I’ve worked with a lot of major companies and I think I’ve learned a few things about what makes them work and what makes them not work. Now, why would a man living in Hollywood, California in beautiful sunny weather of LA come to Tulsa because last year I did it and it was damn exciting. Clay Clark has put together an exceptional presentation really life-changing and I’m looking forward to seeing you then. I’m Michael Levine I’ll see you in Tulsa. James did I tell you my good friend John Lee Dumas is also joining us at the in-person two-day interactive Thrive Time Show Business Workshop, that Tim Tebow and that Michael Levine. Have I told you this? You have not told me that. He’s coming all the way from Puerto Rico. This is John Lee Dumas, the host of the chart-topping podcast. He’s absolutely a living legend. This guy started a podcast after wrapping up his service in the United States military and he started recording this podcast daily in his home to the point where he started interviewing big-time folks like Gary Vaynerchuk, like Tony Robbins, and he just kept interviewing bigger and bigger names putting up shows day after day and now he is the legendary host of the EO Fire podcast and he’s traveling all the way from Puerto Rico to Tulsa, Oklahoma to attend the in-person June 27th and 28th, Thrive Time Show, two-day interactive business workshop.

Thrive Time Show two day interactive business workshops are the world’s highest rated and most reviewed business workshops. Because we teach you what you need to know to grow. You can learn the proven 13 point business system that Dr. Zellner and I have used over and over to start and grow successful companies. 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. 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, 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. 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 systems 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’re going to give you your money back if you don’t love it. We’ve built this facility for you, and we’re excited to see it. And now you may be thinking, what does it actually cost to attend an in-person, two-day interactive Thrive Time Show business workshop? Well, good news. The tickets are $250 or whatever price that you can afford. Yes, they’re $250 or whatever price you can afford. I grew up without money and I know what it’s like to live without money. So if you’re out there today and you want to attend our in-person, two-day interactive business workshop, all you got to do is go to to request those tickets. And if you can’t afford $250, we have scholarship pricing available to make it affordable for you. I learned at the Academy in Kings Point, New York, acta non verba. Watch what a person does, not what they say. Good morning, good morning, good morning. Harvard Kiyosaki, The Rich Dad Radio Show. Today I’m broadcasting from Phoenix, Arizona, not Scottsdale, Arizona. They’re close, but they’re completely different worlds. And I have a special guest today. The definition of intelligence is if you agree with me, you’re intelligent. And so this gentleman is very intelligent. I’ve done this show before also, but very seldom do you find somebody who lines up on all counts. And so Mr. Clay Clark is a friend of a good friend, Eric Trump. But we’re also talking about money, bricks, and how screwed up the world can get in a few and a half hour. So Clay Clark is a very intelligent man and there’s so many ways we could take this thing but I thought since you and Eric are close, Trump, what were you saying about what Trump can’t, what Donald, who’s my age, and I can say or cannot say Well I have to, first of all I have to honor you sir, I want to show you what I did to one of your books here There’s a guy by the name of Jeremy Thorne, who was my boss at the time. I was 19 years old, working at Faith Highway. I had a job at Applebee’s, Target, and DirecTV. He said, have you read this book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad? I said, no. My father, may he rest in peace, he didn’t know these financial principles. I started reading all of your books and really devouring your books. I went from being an employee to self-employed, to the business owner, to the investor. I owe a lot of that to you. And I just wanted to take a moment to tell you, thank you so much for allowing me to achieve success. And I’ll tell you all about Eric Trump, but I just want to tell you, thank you, sir, for changing my life. Well, not only that, Clay, you know, thank you, but you’ve become an influencer. You know, more than anything else, you’ve evolved into an influencer where your word has more and more power. So that’s why I congratulate you on becoming. Because as you know, there’s a lot of fake influencers out there, or bad influencers. Yeah. Anyway, I’m glad you and I agree so much, and thanks for reading my books. Yeah. That’s the greatest thrill for me today. Not a thrill, but recognition is when people, young men especially, come up and say, I read your book, changed my life, I’m doing this, I’m doing this, I’m doing this. I learned at the Academy, at King’s Point in New York, acta non verba. Watch what a person does, not what they say. Hey, I’m Ryan Wimpey. I’m originally from Tulsa, born and raised here. I went to a small private liberal arts college and got a degree in business, and I didn’t learn anything like they’re teaching here. I didn’t learn linear workflows. I learned stuff that I’m not using, and I haven’t been using for the last nine years. So what they’re teaching here is actually way better than what I got at business school. And I went what was actually ranked as a very good business school. The linear workflow, the linear workflow for us in getting everything out on paper and documented is really important. We have workflows that are kind of all over the place. So having linear workflow and seeing that mapped out on multiple different boards is pretty awesome. That’s really helpful for me. The atmosphere here is awesome. I definitely just stared at the walls, figuring out how to make my facility look like this place. This place rocks. It’s invigorating. The walls are super. It’s just very cool. The atmosphere is cool. The people are nice. It’s a pretty cool place to be. Very good learning atmosphere. I literally want to model it and steal everything that’s here at this facility and basically create it just on our business side. Once I saw what they were doing, I knew I had to get here at the conference. This is probably the best conference or seminar I’ve ever been to in over 30 years of business. You’re not bored. You’re waiting live the whole time. It’s not pushy. They don’t try to sell you a bunch of things. I was looking to learn how to just get control of my life, my schedule, and just get control of the business. Planning your time, breaking it all down, making time for the F6 in your life, and just really implementing it and sticking with the program. It’s really lively. He’s pretty friendly, helpful, and very welcoming. I attended a conference a couple months back and it was really the best business conference I’ve ever attended. At the workshop I learned a lot about time management, really prioritizing what’s the most important. The biggest takeaways are you want to take a step-by-step approach to your business, whether it’s marketing, what are those three marketing tools that you want to use, to human resources. Some of the most successful people and successful businesses in this town, their owners were here today because they wanted to know more from Clay and I found that to be kind of fascinating. The most valuable thing that I’ve learned is diligence. That businesses don’t change overnight. It takes time and effort and you got to go through the ups and downs of getting it to where you want to go. He actually gives you the roadmap out. I was stuck, didn’t know what to do, and he gave me the road map out step by step. He set up systems in the business that make my life much easier, allow me some time freedom. Here you can ask any question you want, they guarantee it will be answered. This conference motivates me and also gives me a lot of knowledge and tools. It’s up to you to do it. Everybody can do these things. There’s stuff that everybody knows, but if you don’t do it, nobody else is going to do it for you. I can see the marketing working. It’s just an approach that makes sense. Probably the most notable thing is just the income increase that we’ve had. Everyone’s super fun and super motivating. I’ve been here before, but I’m back again because it motivated me. Your competition’s going to come eventually or try to pick up these tactics. So you better, if you don’t, somebody else will. 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 Thrive 15. 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. Right, this is where we used to live a few years ago. This is our old neighborhood. See? It’s nice, right? 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 team. We went from four to fourteen 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 wanna thank you, Clay, and thank you, Vanessa, for everything you’ve done, everything you’ve helped us with. We love you guys. If you decide to not attend the Thrive Time Workshop, you’re missing out on a great opportunity. The Atmosphere Place office is very lively. You can feel the energy as soon as you walk through the door. And it really got me and my team very excited. If you decide not to come, you’re missing out on an opportunity to grow your business, bottom line. Love the environment. I love the way that Clay presents and teaches. It’s a way that not only allows me to comprehend what’s going on, but he explains it in a way to where it just makes sense. The SEO optimization, branding, marketing. I’ve learned, marketing is key, marketing is everything. Making sure that you’re branded accurately and clearly. How to grow a business using Google reviews and then just how to optimize our name through our website also. Helpful with a lot of marketing, search engine optimization, helping us really rank high in Google. The biggest thing I needed to learn was how to build my foundation, how to systemize everything and optimize everything, build my SEO. How to become more organized, more efficient. How to make sure the business is really there to serve me, as opposed to me constantly being there for the business. New ways of advertising my business, as well as recruiting new employees. Group interviews, number one. Before, we felt like we were held hostage by our employees. Group interviews has completely eliminated that because you’re able to really find the people that would really be the best fit. Hands-on, how to hire people, how to deal with human resources, a lot about marketing, and overall, just how to structure the business, how it works for me, and also then how that can translate into working better for my clients. The most valuable thing I’ve learned here is time management. I like the one hour of doing your business is real critical if I’m going to grow and change. Play really teaches you how to navigate through those things and not only find freedom, but find your purpose in your business and find the purposes for all those other people that directly affect your business as well. Everybody. Everybody. Everybody. Everybody. Everyone. Everyone needs to attend the conference because you get an Everybody. Everybody. Everyone. Everyone needs to attend the conference because you get an opportunity to see that it’s real.
