About Us

Clay S. Nelson, Founder/President


"Life Changer." "Result Producer." "Energetic, Passionate Teacher." "Accountability Partner."

Over the years, Clay Nelson’s clients have found unique ways to describe him and the work he does, but simply put, Clay is a leadership development specialist and an executive mentor. He’s also the founder of Clay Nelson Life Balance, which empowers leaders to reach their greatest potential in both their professional and personal lives. As an experienced entrepreneur and executive mentor, Clay’s 40+ years of experience enable him to relate to the work-life issues that business leaders and executives deal with every day.

The core of Clay’s executive development philosophy revolves around work-life balance and accountability for learning, growing, and then empowering others. With this philosophy as his foundation, Clay provides leaders and their teams with business and executive coaching, leadership development, team building, mediation, facilitation, planning, system analyses, and seminar leadership.

Clay’s sense of energy is contagious. Not only will you laugh during his workshops and coaching sessions, but you’ll also learn to incorporate that joy into your everyday life. Clay Nelson Life Balance proves that it’s easier and more profitable to incorporate fun into work.

Clay "created Clay Nelson Life Balance to focus on what [he] saw was a deeper need; helping people and companies fulfill their potential; maximize profits; make themselves, their clients, and their families happier; and have a lot of fun in the process." He knows the elements that make a business successful and uses his savvy intuition and uncanny ability to see into the heart of his clients to help them realize who they are, what’s stopping them from achieving the success they’re looking for, and how to create the action plan necessary to get what they say they want in any aspect of their work and personal life.

In addition to being a leadership development specialist and executive mentor, Clay is also:

I can honestly say that Clay Nelson is a dedicated professional whose concern is that he makes a difference with each and every person he comes in contact with. He speaks from the heart. What he teaches in all domains, especially Life Balance, Team, Delegation, Accountability, and Planning, is powerful, both personally and in business.

Clay has an uncanny ability to "read" the people he is talking to and bring out sincere emotional interaction in Board Rooms to Ballrooms... More than once I have seen the wait staff serving our 100+ member association literally stop in mid stride to listen to what message Clay was bringing the crowd.

As a busy, single mom working a minimum of 80 hours per week, the name of Clay’s business, “Life Balance,” struck a chord with me. I wanted to have more success without having to work all of the time... Now I think of Clay as a grandfather with a whipping stick! He holds me accountable, provides fresh perspectives, and always looks forward to the next step. By working on scheduling and organizing my time better, Clay has helped me do more of what I love and less of what I don’t.
