Our family and co-workers have been blessed to have Clay Nelson and his team in our lives for two decades. During that time his level of commitment, integrity, coaching and insight have been simply remarkable. His coaching grew our little company to a powerhouse in development and residential construction. His ability to see through the "noise" and determine the true source of problems plaguing a growing business have been truly inspirational. His commitment never flagged, and his devotion to absolute personal integrity in the work environment, as well as life in general, guided us into a fuller sense of consciousness to those around us and our obligation to live our very best selves. Don't ask him to help you unless you are serious! And if you are serious, get ready for real, positive change!
I am grateful to call him my friend, coach and mentor and offer him to you with my unqualified endorsement.

Where do I begin? To truly see the man I am now, you would have to have known me before I started meeting with Clay. Working with Clay has been one of the most important things I’ve done in my life. I had no clue I would be saying that back when I started. I was incredibly skeptical of any counseling or coaching. I was a control freak and lived by the mantra “if you want it done right do it yourself”. That mantra worked for a bit but it started failing me as I couldn't do anymore then I was already doing. I was stuck.
My business was growing, and I had lost control of not only it, but my life. I was very successful and very unhappy at the same time. I think I would have eventually lost it all had I continued on the path I was on or in the very least… would have continued on being miserable. Coaching with Clay has been life changing for me, and I am forever grateful to Clay for the time he spends with me. (read more)

My husband and I opened a business and had a conflict with some of our partners. We needed to talk to someone outside of the situation. My sister-in law was a client of Clay’s and she told us, “You must see Clay. He’s the guy.”
Clay saw right through me. His focus on acknowledging the problem pushed me to tell him what I wasn’t telling myself. This helped me realize that if I want to do something, I have the power to do it—in both my personal and professional life. Now I enjoy what I have more.
Clay helped us realize that, while we can’t escape work conflicts, we do have the power to change the situation and improve our business.

Clay prides himself on getting businesses to go from zero to sixty in no time, but my business doesn’t work that way. Instead, Clay has helped me to stay focused on my long-term goals and to accomplish them sooner.
Today, my business is expanding; I’m looking for a new office and will soon hire another associate. Working with Clay, I feel better about making these strategic decisions. Thanks to this peace of mind, my anxiety levels are lower and my work-life balance has improved. This is most noticeable outside the office, where I can focus on the task at hand without worrying about what’s going on at the office.
I’ve talked with people in my industry who see other business coaches, but don’t think they’re worth the money. I know the value is there with Clay.

I was so moved and impressed by the seminar [Clay] presented, I decided to hire him as my personal and business coach, ... commencing a two year professional relationship that was nothing short of life changing for me, both personally and professionally. Clay kept me on track and held me accountable for doing what I needed to do to take my business to the next level. His insightful observations and guidance delivered on a weekly basis helped me break through the road blocks I faced along the way to achieving my personal and business goals.

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, so I called Clay after I heard him speak.
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.
The most significant improvement has occurred in my “side business.” Usually, because of a big home show, March is my most profitable month. This year I hired Clay in March, and monthly sales have stayed at or exceeded that peak level! He's been tough and uncompromising in helping me reach this point, and I love him for it!

Clay has been very instrumental in improving both my personal and business worlds. He helped me go from living a "cubicle life" to building my dream empire in fewer than nine months. I could never have done it without Clay as my coach and accountability partner. He is a gem and really knows how to get things done.
If you are open and willing to change, you will change. Clay’s methodology and training will make you grow quickly, but you must be prepared for someone else to hold you accountable to making your own dreams a reality. It will likely be an emotional journey, but once you get over your own roadblocks, you quickly realize anything is possible!
So button your pants, tighten your running shoes, and get ready to go! There is no time like the present to make things happen!
