    Is It Time For a Second Location?

    Most business owners have a vision, and usually, if they’re serious, a plan to build multiple locations for their business. Most love duplicating their business coach brand because it gives them the ability to provide more of their product or service to more people. But how do you know when it’s time for a second location? I mean, once you[ Read More ]
  • Squash Your Inner B-Player class=

    Squash Your Inner B-Player

    The A-Team is Team Consistency. Team consistency consists of about 3% of the total population. That’s business coach Clay’s theory. Any chance you have of finding an A-Player means you have to interview about 100 people to find three A-Players. That’s not very positive. What’s even worse, and even more eye opening is that even A-Players have B-Player tendencies. Since[ Read More ]
  • Don’t Dwell – Pick Up the Phone Again class=

    Don’t Dwell – Pick Up the Phone Again

    Typically, we write about things we learn. We cover ways to grow your business as a business coach. We talk about super fun things like sales, action steps to lowering expenses in your business, books, systems and if you’re an avid reader, you probably know all of the lingo here at #ThriveNation. If you’ve been reading the coaching blogs for[ Read More ]
  • Branding is Your Foundation class=

    Branding is Your Foundation

    One thing I’ve learned from business coaching, when working with many entrepreneurs and business owners is that, when it comes to branding, it is many times an afterthought. Yet that’s the opposite of how it should actually be. Maybe that’s why, according to Forbes, 9 out of 10 businesses fail. Branding is the firm foundation of your sales and lead[ Read More ]

    Fast or Slow – You’ll Get There

    When it comes to business coaching business owners, there are so many things that I learned early on when training to be a coach that I constantly have to remind myself of throughout my career. There are so many basic, fundamental aspects of coaching that Clay teaches us early on during the process of shadowing or learning the systems. We[ Read More ]
  • Freakin’ Lead class=

    Freakin’ Lead

    Why are leaders being silent in the face of adversity during this whole, “plandemic” situation? This is a blog about business coaching and entrepreneurship. It’s not a place to start a political controversy, but here I go. This week had a theme for me. Leadership. Leadership - whether you are leading an all-staff meeting, mentoring your employees, and becoming invested[ Read More ]
  • Don’t memorize – Be intelligent class=

    Don’t memorize – Be intelligent

    In our daily business coach meeting, yesterday, we were going over our key performance indicators (KPI’s) and discussing a win that one of our clients had experienced. This particular client has a window cleaning business and is quite successful, with many different locations. We have been working with him for a while and one of his biggest limiting factors has[ Read More ]

    Books Are Mentors Too

    When it comes to business, one thing ALL successful people realize, whether you are an entrepreneur or not, success comes from many things and proper mentorship or business coaching is a huge part of that. Most of us know we need mentors. Many of you may already have incredible mentors in your lives that help hold you accountable to your[ Read More ]
  • Literally, Spiritually, Emotionally – Raw Entrepreneurship class=

    Literally, Spiritually, Emotionally – Raw Entrepreneurship

    Let’s talk entrepreneurs for a minute. I work with dozens of entrepreneurs every week at our business coaching program. I talk to hundreds of entrepreneurs every month. In all reality, I prefer to talk to entrepreneurs and only entrepreneurs. If anyone knows entrepreneurs better than anyone without actually being one themselves, it’s definitely the Thrivetime Show Business coaches, myself included. [ Read More ]
  • Will You Lose?! class=

    Will You Lose?!

    If I do say so myself, lately, at the Thrivetime Show, the business coach team has been nothing short of making the most offensive statements backed by facts such as, “The mortality rate of the coronavirus is .26% without a vaccine.” https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/planning-scenarios.html?fbclid=IwAR0tN9JHXstc19dF0hojYnRCWbZsD2yl0YkJj1QswxQXXnnhQTcxC-ZMKj8  So, you may be curious why I’m starting my introduction to my blog this week already offending about[ Read More ]
  • Traction vs. Distraction class=

    Traction vs. Distraction

    Traction versus distraction Everything you do, every person you talk to, every decision you make and everything you choose to spend your time on is either making traction toward the one thing you set out to do, or it’s a distraction and must be handled. When it comes to your business coaching goals, you must know your driving factor. That’s[ Read More ]
  • The Power of One class=

    The Power of One

    One thing I have recently learned, it is the power of one. The power of one person, one business coach, - one person with a changed mind, one person with a desire to see something happen, one person can make an impact in waves. If there is one thing that I have learned over the last two months during the[ Read More ]

    If They Think You Don’t Give a Crap, They Won’t Either

    Customers -- If they think you don’t give a crap, they won’t either. Pardon the title and the language, but it’s so true. This came from one of those random, Jonathan-Kelly-drops-a-knowledge-bomb-in-an-early-morning-conversation quotes. Yet I thought it was so good, people needed to hear it. Folks, if your customers think you don’t care, they won’t buy from you. It’s that simple. [ Read More ]
  • Are Your Goals S.M.A.R.T.? class=

    Are Your Goals S.M.A.R.T.?

    When it comes to entrepreneurship, setting your goals is step one, and arguably the most important step in the game of business. Jack Welch says, “Control your destiny, or someone else will.” As an entrepreneur, if you are not actively setting goals, everyone and everything can and will control your destiny; the market, your circumstances, your employees, friends, family -[ Read More ]
  • Entrepreneurs Overcoming Adversity class=

    Entrepreneurs Overcoming Adversity

    As a Thrivetime Show business coach, I see my clients overcome adversity every day, every week, month after month. Sometimes the adversity is something as simple as isolating the objection during a killer sale. Other times, it can be a challenge such as navigating the economic trials coming from the coronavirus pandemic. Either way, if you are an entrepreneur, you[ Read More ]
  • Nail it, Then Scale it class=

    Nail it, Then Scale it

    This is a common theme this week amongst many of, not only my clients but some of the other business coach clients as well. Most of our clients have great ambitions and big aspirations. They’re entrepreneurs. So they think BIG. I can 100% empathize with the entrepreneur who has the big goal and wants to get on that NOW! For[ Read More ]

    Life is not a Sprint; It’s a Marathon

    “Life is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.” - Clay Clark Marinate on this for a minute. No, really. Stop reading this for 30 seconds and think about that quote over and over. As a business coach, I think this is something we are all a little guilty of, at least I am anyway. Consistency is the hardest thing for[ Read More ]

    How to Make Compelling Advertisements

    When it comes to advertising, it truly is a simple process that most marketing companies make extremely and unnecessarily complicated. In fact, I can easily make the concept too complicated if I overthink it too much. There is a Steve Jobs quote that I love. He says, “Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get[ Read More ]
  • The SEO Deep Dive class=

    The SEO Deep Dive

    There are many things I enjoy about taking on new projects with new or existing clients. One of my favorite examples of the week is the infamous Clay Clark and Jonathan Kelly SEO Deep Dive. P.S. If you haven’t downloaded Search Engine Domination for free on our website or bought a hard copy so you can tab and outline (for[ Read More ]
  • If They Aren’t For You, They’re Against You class=

    If They Aren’t For You, They’re Against You

    One thing that I am slowly starting to learn from my boss and mentor, Jonathan Kelly is the fact that there is no middle ground, and keeping the peace is not peaceful, or it accomplishes nothing. The Power of One is only as powerful as the opposition you are willing to incur. How does this apply to me as a[ Read More ]
  • Bet on Yourself class=

    Bet on Yourself

    A business coach client asked Clay what advice Clay had about the option for the business owner to invest his retirement account from a former job into his business. Clay’s response was, “Do you want to bet on yourself?”. Naturally, this got me thinking. Would I bet on me? What kind of people would you bet on and what is[ Read More ]

    The Technical Side of Writing a Call Script

    Sales is truly a beautiful thing. I LOVE sales. If you are one of my business coach clients, you know there is nothing that will get me more pumped up than when you tell me you closed a big deal. My business coaching clients know I love talking sales and they know that if they didn’t get all of their homework[ Read More ]
  • The Powerful Influence of Scarcity class=

    The Powerful Influence of Scarcity

    This week as a business coach, I learned about the power within the law of scarcity. Or maybe it was simply brought to light more so this week. People want what they can’t have. We all know this to be true.  In fact, Business Insider talks about the psychology of this and how our primal desire makes certain people seem[ Read More ]

    You Won’t Get Paid – Deal With It

    If you have been following my business coach diaries blog for some time, and I hope you have, you probably have noticed that most of my articles are about happy things.

    Is Your Mind Conventional or Dimensional?

    When it comes to your mind - your brain - your cranium, does your mind operate in a conventional or dimensional way? How should your mind operate? What exactly does it mean to have a conventional versus dimensional mind? Oxford defines conventional as “based on or in accordance with what is generally done or believed”. Oxford also defines dimensional as[ Read More ]

    Clay Clark’s 6 Steps of Success

    During the all-staff, Monday morning Thrivetime Show business coaching meeting, Clay Clark broke down his secrets of success in a very simple and practical way. Most of the steps are daily activities that I already know and am currently doing. But, I thought to myself, “This really is the simple, practical steps I’ve learned over the last year that has[ Read More ]

    When Dragon Energy is Not Enough | Business Coaching

    Dragon Energy -- What is it? Most of you may not be familiar with this term. Many of you know exactly what dragon energy is because you too contain the dragon energy. Essentially, Dragon Energy is the term Kanye West uses to describe the common character trait that both he and Donald Trump share. What separates these two from the[ Read More ]

    Read a Book Instead

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

    Live the F6 Life

    Tuesday, I was asked a question that I realized a year ago, I would not have had the answer, advice or any type of system to provide. The question was, “How do you avoid drifting in different aspects of your life?”  This is something that I truly believe most people struggle with; living a balanced and intentional life. I want[ Read More ]

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

    My boss, Clay Clark is always dropping knowledge bombs on our business coach team at the Thrivetime Show. Sometimes, I hear something on the podcast just like you, where I’m going, “Whoa. That’s so good.” Other times, he’ll drop a quote or knowledge bomb in a coaches meeting or in everyday conversation. This week he said, “Go out on a[ Read More ]
