Episode #090: How to Take Control of Your Destiny with Clay Clark

Author of Thrive

clay clarkClay Clark has to be, hands down, one of the funniest people I’ve ever interviewed.

His attitude and approach to life are about as positive as anyone I’ve ever had the pleasure to be around. It makes sense then that he would carve out a niche for himself, helping every-day people and business owners learn how to make the most out of life and business.

In his book Thrive: How to Take Control of Your Destiny and Move Beyond Surviving…Now, Clay sets out to help you achieve your goals and dreams by allowing you to learn from his past experiences, failures and successes.

If you are tired of just surviving, Clay says, then it’s time for you to THRIVE! Click the play button below to join our conversation. And for the list of resources Clay and I mention, simply scroll down.

  • Tips for building a scalable and duplicatable business
  • And much more!
