    Find a Problem and Solve It

    Who do you hang out with? As you look at the different individuals, business coaches, and groups of people that you spend the most time with asking yourself, how do they think and how do they live? One of the things that I recognize as I take the time to look at the world around me is that the majority[ Read More ]
  • Bad News is Best in Person class=

    Bad News is Best in Person

    Well…. I recently did something that no man, who hopes to stay in a relationship with his significant other, should ever do. I sent “bad” information to my wife through the mode of communication commonly known as text message. The information I sent wasn't even that bad when you take into account typical ideas associated with “bad”, like death, sickness,[ Read More ]
  • The Real King (is Consistency) class=

    The Real King (is Consistency)

    I don't know about you, but I love me some Chick-fil-a. There is just something about their Deluxe spicy chicken sandwich meal that puts me as a business coach over the edge. When you take the spice of the tender chicken and combine it with the sweetness of the Chick-fil-a sauce, it is a magical party for my taste buds.[ Read More ]
  • Put the Phone Down class=

    Put the Phone Down

    I was sitting on my couch at my home the other day after a busy week of being a business coach and was experiencing a sense of being overwhelmed by my kids. I have three children, ages 8, 6, and 2, and I love being a father. Hanging out with my kids is one of my favorite things. In this[ Read More ]
  • Why Are People More Successful Than You? class=

    Why Are People More Successful Than You?

    Why are people more successful than me? Why are people more successful than you? If you don't ask this of yourself on a consistent basis, then you're missing out on a huge opportunity. This is something that I consistently ask myself on any given day. As I look around and I see the strengths and weaknesses of those around me,[ Read More ]

    Knock knock… Who’s there?

    Knock knock... Who's there?... Hatch... Hatch who?... God bless you! If you are even remotely similar to me and the other business coach team, then you may have cracked a smile at that joke. Currently, I am in a stage of life with young children, where knock knock jokes make me the cool dad. My kids are young enough that[ Read More ]
  • Love What You Do class=

    Love What You Do

    Do you love what you get to do every day? Most people that I talk to do NOT love their job. They are doing the bare minimum to collect a paycheck and saunter through life until that inevitable day when a stroke takes them and their life ends. My brain can't comprehend why so many people live this way! Wait…[ Read More ]
  • The Power of PR class=

    The Power of PR

    PR, also known as public relations, is essentially the exposure that you have to the general public through different media outlets and modes of communication. When it comes to PR, there are some very intentional things that you can do if you want to create exposure for yourself on a large scale. Years ago, business coach Clay Clark paid Michael[ Read More ]
  • Criticism is a Prerequisite to Success class=

    Criticism is a Prerequisite to Success

    What is really most important to you in your business? Do you care more about what your employees think, or do you care about hitting your goals? Are you obsessed with not offending anyone, or are you willing to accept the fact that in order to have a purple cow, you will have to alienate someone? It is literally impossible[ Read More ]
  • The Objective of a Business Coach class=

    The Objective of a Business Coach

    Picture this, you are sitting on a beach sipping some fruity drink, or perhaps you are reading in a coffee shop. Maybe you are skiing on the slopes in Vail, Colorado, or perhaps you are out buying the new sports car that you've always wanted to purchase. Maybe for you, the image that you want to picture when it comes[ Read More ]
  • Business Coach on Having the Correct Focus class=

    Business Coach on Having the Correct Focus

    Have you ever just sat back and observed the world? It seems like in today's age, if you look around, it's almost like there are a lot of blind people wandering around in the woods. People seem lost, they don't know what to do. They don't know how to manage their time or finances. People seem oblivious to what is[ Read More ]
  • How to Solve Conflict in All Situations class=

    How to Solve Conflict in All Situations

    No matter what type of industry you are in, or in my case, what type of business coaching clients I'm working with, at some point every person is going to encounter stressful and intense situations. While we want to do everything that we can to bring our best to every interaction and not intentionally walk into a conflict-ridden situation, when[ Read More ]
  • The DOOM Loop class=

    The DOOM Loop

    I have a business coaching client who is going through a sort of a doom loop in his business. The situation that he finds himself in is that while he is growing every year, because his business model has very low profitability, as he grows his revenue, his expenses also increase simultaneously. While he is excited about bringing in new[ Read More ]
  • The Four Letter Word in Business class=

    The Four Letter Word in Business

    The word SELL seems to be a four-letter word for a lot of people. When it comes to selling, there can be a lot of hesitation or ambivalence or just straight-up fear of rejection. I'm sure we've all experienced what it's like to work with the stereotypical salesperson at a used car lot. We probably come to expect that they[ Read More ]
  • How to Find Good Managers | Business Coach class=

    How to Find Good Managers | Business Coach

    A common problem that entrepreneurs face over and over again that I see as a business coach is finding good managers. When it comes to duplicating yourself for being able to trust someone to oversee aspects of your business, most entrepreneurs tend to believe that they have to do it all. This is a trap that I've seen many clients[ Read More ]
  • The Customer’s Experience class=

    The Customer’s Experience

    What makes your customer experience different from the competition? What do customers experience when they experience your organization? Do they experience disorganization, poor customer service, and an overall low level of excellence? Do they experience an environment that is memorable, service that is exceptional, and are wowed from the beginning to the end of their exposure to your organization? Hopefully,[ Read More ]

    The Fear of Rejections

    Do you hate rejection? Is it always in the back of your mind, that no matter what you do, someone won't like it? Here's the deal, when it comes to being an entrepreneur, you literally cannot be successful without rejection. What is your favorite recipe? What meal did you always love for your mama to make you for your birthday?[ Read More ]
  • You Snooze, You LOSE! class=

    You Snooze, You LOSE!

    Wake up! Why do people find it so necessary to sleep in? I mean, my good friend, Benjamin Franklin once said: "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise." Maybe you are not a person who feels the need to listen to Benjamin Franklin. I mean, he was only an author, a printer, political[ Read More ]
  • Why Do People Hate Processes? class=

    Why Do People Hate Processes?

    Why do people hate processes? I mean, come on. It has become such a cultural norm to look for instant gratification in everything. Whether you're considering what we eat or the media that we consume or text messaging or social media or virtually any aspect of our culture, instant gratification has become an epidemic. It has become the social norm[ Read More ]
  • What Does It Mean to Manage class=

    What Does It Mean to Manage

    Do you consider yourself a manager? Do you have managers in your organization? If so, from your perspective, what is a manager? What is the purpose of the manager? What are managers supposed to accomplish? These are great questions. We as business coaches, want you to understand that managers are simply people who entrepreneurs have put in place to make[ Read More ]
  • Do What Works. class=

    Do What Works.

    Do what works. Interesting. This is a concept that, at least in my business coaching opinion, should be common sense. Do what works. Take a system or process or approach that you have seen work in the past and use it to work for you. This doesn't seem to revolutionary does it? Well, when it comes to business, why do[ Read More ]
  • In My Feelings class=

    In My Feelings

    Although we are a business coaching company, not a counseling service, it sure seems like it sometimes. Feelings are everywhere. "I feel this and I feel that". "Can you validate my feelings?". "I feel like this business tip will work." "I feel like this business tip won't work. I feel like what you're doing is not working. I feel like[ Read More ]

    What’s the Temperature?

    What is the temperature in here? Have you ever gone into a restaurant or store and there was clearly an issue with the temperature? It was either too hot or too cold and it was obvious to you that the guests were uncomfortable, yet the owner or employees didn't seem to notice or care? Temperature is an essential element to[ Read More ]

    Success is in the Day in and Day Out

    What does your day-to-day look like? Are you the type of person who knows exactly what they will be doing at every moment during the day? Do you have your time scheduled and you've developed consistent routines and habits, or are you the individual who flies by the seat of their pants? I would say that the majority of people[ Read More ]
  • The Purple Cow class=

    The Purple Cow

    Have you ever heard of a purple cow? If not, you are not alone. When it comes to your business, a purple cow is a thing that makes you stand out in the middle of a sea of brown cows. If you were to drive around the Bixby, OK area where I make my residence, you are very likely to[ Read More ]

    Rejection Is a Statistical Probability

    Rejection is a statistical probability. Rejection is a statistical probability. Rejection is a statistical probability. I can keep going if you want me to.
