  • Showtime class=


    Doctor Zoellner, mentor to business coaching wizard Clay Clark teaches a principle called “Showtime”. This has been a big topic of discussion in the office this past week. So what does showtime mean you may ask? That means that as a business owner, business coach, or employee in general you need to view every interaction with a customer or client[ Read More ]
  • Black and White Perspective class=

    Black and White Perspective

    There is an image out there that depicts 2 men arguing about a number on the ground. On one side one of the men is adamant that it is a 9 and the other man, who is standing across from the first man, is arguing that it is 6. To each of them, they believe that they are correct because[ Read More ]
  • The Pursuit of Happiness class=

    The Pursuit of Happiness

    The Declaration of Independence does not state that all men are guaranteed happiness, but the pursuit of happiness.   In the Declaration of Independence, there is a well-known sentence that reads “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,[ Read More ]
  • You Gotta Work For It class=

    You Gotta Work For It

    You Need to be Your Own Cheerleader As a business coach, once the concept that I teach all of my business coach clients is that you need to be your own cheerleader, no one is going to care about your business as you do. No one will care that you have invested years of hard work and money into your[ Read More ]
  • Adding or Subtracting? class=

    Adding or Subtracting?

    There are two types of people in this world. Ones that are on your side, you know, the people that are excited for your success and encourage you to hit your goals. Then, there are those that are against you. The people that criticize your work, are constantly negative and are resentful because they are jealous of your success. This[ Read More ]
  • Knowledge Bombs From Clay and Jonathan class=

    Knowledge Bombs From Clay and Jonathan

    This week there were a lot of super moves taught by business coach Clay and Jonathan, so buckle up, and take some notes.  Repeat the last three words someone says...or ask them “what they mean by that.” This is a power move I now use with my business coach clients. Jonathan Kelly taught me to use this move when you[ Read More ]
  • We All Have the Same 24 hours class=

    We All Have the Same 24 hours

    When you don’t have a plan you drift. That means with no list you will, by default, waste that precious free time.   Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffet, Oprah Winfrey, TD Jakes, business coach Clay Clark, all of these people have something in common, they are super successful. So what’s their secret? Are they superhuman? Were they born into privilege and[ Read More ]
  • “The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear Itself” class=

    “The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear Itself”

    Y2K, West Nile Virus, the Swine Flu, the end of the Myan calendar, Murderers, car crashes, terrorists. Whatever it is there will literally always be something to be scared of. The controversial idea coming your way.... the world never gets any better or worse, it just is. There will always be good and always be bad. The determining factor is[ Read More ]
  • The Pareto Principle class=

    The Pareto Principle

    As business coaches at the ThriveTime headquarters it is our job to stay ahead of the crazy that life often brings us. This week I watched Clay coach a fellow colleague through working through a crazy situation. This particular person was upset about the closing of their house being rescheduled. However, the crazy part was that the reason they couldn’t[ Read More ]
  • The Thrivetime Business Conference, Taking the ‘E’ out of ‘Emotion class=

    The Thrivetime Business Conference, Taking the ‘E’ out of ‘Emotion

    This past weekend we had our February business conference. This Conference was smaller than the previous conference but I loved that it was. I have noticed that when we have 100 conference attendees verses 300 Clay and the other speakers are able to interact much more with all of the conference attendees. They are able to answer more one on[ Read More ]
  • Even though… class=

    Even though…

    This week at the Thrivetime headquarters we had our weekly all-staff business coach meeting on Monday morning. This is a meeting where we go over wins of the week, burning fires, and housekeeping notes. This week one of our housekeeping notes was to make sure that we are absolutely hitting our deadlines, not one day after, but on the day[ Read More ]
  • Obsession class=


    Obsession is often a topic of discussion here at Thrive. Why? Because if you ever truly want to succeed at anything you have to obsess over it. Clay encouraged the business coach team this week to think about the one work thing that they wanted to be great at. Then obsess over it. He also encouraged us to do the[ Read More ]
  • Knowledge Is Not Power, Implementation Is class=

    Knowledge Is Not Power, Implementation Is

    As a business coach, I have learned a lot from Clay and Jonathan. From search engine optimization, and Google canonical compliance, to how to sell stuff and manage a team, and so many more things in between. However, none of these things would have made a difference in my life or my family’s life unless I actually took action and[ Read More ]
  • One Life, One To Do list, One Calendar class=

    One Life, One To Do list, One Calendar

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

    Eat A Big ‘Ole bowl Of Conflict Flakes

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

    It’s Time to Recalibrate

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

    Don’t Listen To The Voices Of The Average

    This week I was able to witness some killer management moves by Clay and Jonathan Kelly. Without getting into all the details of the issues, Jonathan was trying to get to the root of a particular problem and when we found out how the mistake was made and who made it, me and another co-worker started to think of ways[ Read More ]
  • There Is No Such Thing As Neutral | Business Conferences class=

    There Is No Such Thing As Neutral | Business Conferences

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

    The Three O’s Of Successful People

    This past weekend we had one of our Business Conferences and it was fantastic! We had several wonderful guest speakers; Matt Kline from OxiFresh, Jill Donovan, founder of Rustic Cuff, and Michael Levine, PR consultant for Nike, Prince, and David Bowie. All of the people that spoke delivered powerful action steps and knowledge bombs. Something that really stood out to[ Read More ]
  • Don’t Let Pride Hold You Back From Success class=

    Don’t Let Pride Hold You Back From Success

    While talking about helping business coach clients sell things and get google reviews at a faster rate this week Clay said this “What matters more, your pride or succeeding?”. He said this in regards to clients that may have a harder time getting reviews or selling their products and services. Whether that is because they are scared to ask or[ Read More ]
  • Turn It On class=

    Turn It On

    This week in the Thrivetime business coach office we had a guest speaker at our all-staff meeting. Clint Howard, owner, and founder of Tulsa Fitness Systems. He came in to talk to us about health, fitness, and how his program is different than all the others. The Tulsa Fitness Systems system is "KISS", keep it super simple. Often Health professionals[ Read More ]

    Growth is Contagious…But So Is Stupid

    This week I had the opportunity to be pulled into an episode of the ThriveTime Show with Clay, a business coach in training Adrian, and a guy who was shadowing the office for the afternoon. During this episode, Clay asked Adrian and me some questions about what it was like to work at Thrive as a business coach and then[ Read More ]
  • Instant Managers class=

    Instant Managers

    One of the things I help my a lot of my business coach clients with is training their management team or hiring a new manager. One of the main concerns of many of my clients is that when they hire someone new or promote someone to a management position is that the new person won't know what they are doing[ Read More ]
  • Built Like A Tank…But Not In A Weird Way class=

    Built Like A Tank…But Not In A Weird Way

    As a business coach, I get to see a lot of similarities between industries. Services and products may vary, but one thing that never changes no matter the industry is managing employees or even just working with another human being in general. Every employee, every partner, every person always has an opinion or a feeling about every procedure and checklist[ Read More ]


    Goals are something we as business coaches spend a lot of time talking about here at Thrive and for a lot of obvious reasons. The great thing to me as a business coach is that no matter how many times we have a discussion about goals I gain something from it. Recently, Clay spoke to us as a coaching team[ Read More ]
  • Live Fearlessly class=

    Live Fearlessly

    This week as a business coach team we read Outwitting the Devil by Napoleon Hill, which if you haven’t read I would 100% recommend this book. It has so many knowledge bombs it would be hard to pick one. In this book, Napoleon Hill is interviewing the Devil. An overarching theme of this book is that the Devil works through[ Read More ]
  • “And That is How You Do It” class=

    “And That is How You Do It”

    This week I watched the magic of psychology and sociology work together for our benefit. There was a tense (or what I then viewed as tense) business coaching conversation that needed to happen. Without getting into the details it was hard to get a hold of this individual and when it looked like we were finally going to get a[ Read More ]
  • Keep It Simple class=

    Keep It Simple

    Let’s take a trip to my College education days. Where I spent hours and hours cramming information for one test only to forget it the next day, going through mountains of busywork that amounted to nothing, and reading thousands of pages of vague information and ideas. A place where Lectures physically pained me and time seemed to come to a[ Read More ]
  • Only The Paranoid Survive class=

    Only The Paranoid Survive

    “Only the paranoid survive” a quote I have heard many times since I joined the Thrive business coaching program. Something that made complete sense to me from the get-go but just when I thought I was paranoid enough...I wasn’t.    When you arm yourself with the facts your metaphorical antennas will be higher and more aware. Checking for any sort[ Read More ]
  • The Most Proactive You class=

    The Most Proactive You

    Becoming proactive is not only helpful, but it saves you a lot of stress later on. Are you tired of just standing on the sidelines and watching your life pass you by? Every move or play is one that will not get you any closer to your end goal. Proactivity helps you assess and weigh out your options and be[ Read More ]
