    Just DO IT!

    Have you noticed how our society has moved from a discipline-based society, with morals built on the Word of God (The Bible) to a self-centered society based upon an individual's feelings? As a business coach example, I read a story the other day about how parents are raising their kids as “gender-neutral” so that the child can decide as they[ Read More ]
  • Showtime class=

    Showtime

    Have you ever encountered someone or a business coach who sucked the life out of you? You know the type of people I am talking about. The kind of people who, when you are in their presence, leave you feeling like death is the best option. These people are always complaining about something or leave a wake of depressed people[ Read More ]

    Know your Goals – F6 (Goal Oriented)

    Goals or Objectives Drive Everything Ok, I get it, here we go with another business coach post about growing your business and they want to start out talking about goals. Geeze, why do people always bring up the topic of goals? You ask a great question. I'm always curious when was the last time you were at a basketball game[ Read More ]

    Simplicity Scales, Complexity Fails (Simple disciplines)

    On any given morning, if you happen to be awake at 3 am, you can have the joy of knowing that you are not the only person awake in the world, so is business coach Clay Clark. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” Clay definitely lives out the[ Read More ]
  • Success is Boring class=

    Success is Boring

    As I have observed Clay Clark, one thing really stands out with the business coaching clients he coaches. They are bored. Wait! Hold up! What are you talking about? I am serious. You see, when you do the right things day after day to grow your business, it becomes boring. When you do these boring things every day consistently, then[ Read More ]
  • Without a Sale, Your Business will Fail class=

    Without a Sale, Your Business will Fail

    Let's be realistic, the majority of business coaching people that I talk to are repelled by the word “sell”. When you think of selling I find that the majority of entrepreneurs picture the stereotypical car salesman. They picture an overweight, middle-aged man who is gruff and does all kinds of ridiculous, high-pressure sales moves. This man is a slimy, annoying[ Read More ]
  • Meet With Your Team… Just Do It class=

    Meet With Your Team… Just Do It

    I was having a conversation with one of the business coaching clients that I have the privilege of coaching every week, and she was telling me about a situation within her organization that she could not figure out a solution for. She has a successful accounting firm and stays quite busy. Within the context of her busy life managing her[ Read More ]

    The giveback, not the give out.

    Have you ever stopped to think about the fact that your business is not a charity? (Unless your business is an actual charity). The state of our country these days shines such a clear light on how the majority of people think about businesses. Everywhere I look I see people that want a free pass. People want free money from[ Read More ]
  • Being Resilient is Brilliant  class=

    Being Resilient is Brilliant 

    So here, at the time that I am writing this, one of the things that have recently happened is that the government has decided that it wants to make more money from entrepreneurs. Clay Clark has a multimillion-dollar company called Elephant in the Room, a men's grooming lounge. It is like a country club for men’s haircuts. It is a[ Read More ]

    Do not Despise being Criticized

    A really well-known business coaching guest that Clay Clark has had on his podcast, the Thrivetime Show, business school without the BS, was Craig Groeschel. Craig Groeschel is the senior pastor and leader of one of the largest churches in the world, Life.Church. In this interview, Clay was able to talk about Craig's mindset and how he mentally handled criticism.[ Read More ]
  • No Backup Plan class=

    No Backup Plan

    I was talking to a good friend the other day who recently went through a divorce. I was asking him how he was doing and trying to be as supportive as I could be and provide business coaching, considering the marriage had ended because of his infidelity. As I was listening to him talk, one of the statements he made[ Read More ]

    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?

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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!

    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."
