We appreciate the extra effort from Clay to make our event a success!” Carla Sonntag, New Mexico Business Coalition

“Clay Staires system has immensely helped our team to meet our sales and growth goals. Previously to bringing in Eric (the guy that Clay trained), we had cycled through 4 new employees in an attempt to find and train a competent person who could effectively do that job. After bringing in an employee who had been trained on Clay’s system, we were able to keep the employee for over 5 years, and we grew our overall level of gross sales by nearly $300,00 per year. Clay’s system delivers.” Clay Clark – U.S. SBA Entrepreneur of the Year – Founder of DJ Connection Tulsa

“Nine out of ten new businesses fail in the first five years.” Robert Kiyosaki from “Rich Dad’s Guide To Investing”

Wow! This is sobering! Not only for the new business owner, but for the employees and even the community that relies on the revenues that businesses bring in. How can businesses avoid becoming just another statistic?

Being a business Owner/Manager can be a lonely venture. Yes, you are “rolling in the dough”, but is it really what you were expecting? Disgruntled customers and apathetic employees quickly drain you of the freedom you imagined when you first dreamed of running a business. You’re so busy looking down at all the daily details that you don’t have time to look up and enjoy your job, your freedom; your life! Clay has been there and he discovered a way out that leads to success! He kept track of the Path and he can help you find it, get on it and stay on it!

“(Clay’s) dynamic attitude was very persuasive and engaging. The information was relative and up to date. I loved, loved, loved this seminar and I’m so glad I didn’t miss it. There was an obvious, smooth flow into the conclusive aspects of the presentation. He had a very memorable, relaxed closing that summarized all his main points and key concepts. It was awesome!” Denesha, Oral Roberts University
