    "Clay Clark's ability to teach me (someone not computer savvy) how to optimize my website is incredible! I own Facchianos Bridal and Formal attire and have had to pay thousands of dollars in the past to have websites that were sub par and not what I needed for my business until Clay taught me how to do it myself. Now my company website comes up on the search engines in the first three searches.
    It has changed my business overnight on how many times our phone rings. It can change the life of your business to be in control of your website."

  • "Thank you so much for the outstanding workshop you did on SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION (SEO). Several of our clients said it was the beest workshop we have offered so far (we have been doing these for 5 years!). I gave the attendees surveys to fill out and all except for one said they were very satisfied. The one person who was dissatisfied said the workshop simply wasn’t long enough. Some of the remarks from the attendees were:

    - “The overall presentation was great!”
    - “The workshop was very informative and the speaker was really good.”
    - “Right to the point.”
    - “Very fast-paced and informative will good follow-up contacts.
    - “The speaker had a great sense of humor and was very easy to follow.”

    Both from an attendee and a meeting planner’s prospective it had been very enjoyable working with Clay and his staff. By the way, we are very interested in having him back soon to expand on this topic a little more for the people who attended.

    Thanks again for doing such a great job, you made me look good!"

    "To all concerned,

    It is indeed a privilege to recommend Clay Clark to you.  Having been in the classroom for over 22 years, I have had the opportunity to observe a variety speakers and others working with my students. None have had the charisma or the ability to capture an audience and engage them as Clay has done. I never miss a chance to have him in my classroom.

    Clay has been volunteering in my classroom for approximately 7 years with Junior Achievement.  He inspires students to be entrepreneurs and challenges them in several areas and to think about their futures.  My students always look forward to Clay’s visits. 

    It is difficult to find words to properly describe Clay.  He is unique individual.  He is inspiring and entertaining.  He is a giver.  It has been my experience, once you meet him, you feel like he is your friend.  He has qualities that are rarely seen. 

    Even though Clay’s accomplishments speak for themselves, I can honestly say—he is amazing, I have watched him work with some of my most ‘challenging’ students that were otherwise non functioning in the classroom and motivate them.  He can also relate to the more intelligent as well.  Perhaps it is because he is very well read and resourceful that gives him the ability to read his audiences and relate to them.  He has experienced success but has also experienced struggles to success—which seems to aid his ability to identify with and engage any audience.

    Because of his business experience, insight and ability to work with young people, we have asked Clay to be part of our Advisory Committee for our Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America youth organization at school.  Even though he has an extremely full schedule, he has graciously served on this committee for approximately the last 4 years.

    Clay’s initiative and level of commitment sets him apart from others.  He gives more than 100% to whatever he does.  I recommend Clay to you with absolute confidence that you will not be disappointed.  Feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance."

    "Thank you for being such an informational and motivational guest speaker in my Business Mangement & Entrepreneurship class. The students enjoyed hearing...You gave them great insight as to what it takes to become a successful business owner and what steps it takes to get there. We used a quote from Napolean Hill in class the other day and they all remembered your comments on him and his book. You are a great inspiration and we look forward to seeing you again next year."

    I don't know if you'll remember me, but I wanted to write to you in thanks. You spoke to my Adult and Family Living class (Mrs. Farquhar- Broken Arrow High School) about success and living your dreams. I came up afterwards and talked to you because I want to become a filmmaker, but am not really sure how to achieve such a goal. You suggested that I read "Think and Grow Rich." Well, I just wanted to let you know that I did read the book and I was touched by the inspiration it presented me. I would go by your office in hopes to find you there and thank you in person, but senior year is proving itself to be incredibly busy and I am frantically searching for the time to go anywhere anymore.

    But, I wanted to thank you for the suggestion. I loved the book and was very inspired it. I took a lot from its various meanings. I especially liked the quote (whichI know use whenever I can bring it up in conversation) "faith is the head chemist of the mind."

    The best part of the book, the part that made me want to stand up and cheer, was chapter six- Imagination. I want to be a director, but it's almost a hopeless dream. I'll be going off to film school at the University of Tulsa (double-majoring in Film and English) this fall, but there is not a lot of support following my decisions. My family doesn't think that film is a strong career. I mean, I come from scientists and accountants, so it's understandable. But, my father for instance, doesn't want to pay for me to go to college and end up "flipping burgers". So, as you can tell, it's been a hard decision to make, but (like you said in your discussion) I already eliminated my backup plan.

    That is where the imagination chapter touched me so much. I love to be creative and imagination is a huge part of my life. That whole chapter was an inspiration to me. I wrote one quote from the book on my bulletin board (actally, it is next to the handout you gave in my class) that reads, "the impulse, the desire, is given shape, form, and action through the aid of the imaginative faculty of the mind." It is exactly what goes on when I'm behind the camera- I can see the vision and then watch it play out in front of me. It's a dream I hope to achieve on a much larger scale someday and people like you and Napoleon Hill have motivated me to achieve such means.

    I also recently read a book that was moving on a number of levels. It is entitled "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" and was written by a man who was suffering from "locked-in syndrome" after having a stroke. He could only blink one eye and he wrote the entire book using a special chart and the help of many devoted, caring friends. The idea that he could do so much despite his setbacks is very inspirational and I found it to be extremely beneficial when thinking about problems and hurdles in life. You can overcome them and rise above. Often times, I found from this book,problems aren't nearly as bad as one perceived them when you can compare them to something as devastating yet rewarding as the problems faced by the author of this book.

    So, as I wrap up this novel I have written for you, let me say thanks again for your inspiration. I can't thank you enough for showing me that you can achieve your dreams, even if they seem too far-fetched and no one around you thinks it can be done. If I ever need a DJ, I'll definitely remember your business. And, of course, I'll have to thank you in my first Oscar acceptance speech!

    Thank you for your time,
    Heather Brazille

  • "Speaking to different age groups and interests is a challenge.
    The points you shared with the NW Tech morning students, the
    college audience, and the high school / middle school audience
    were "right on." It was interesting to watch the high school /
    middle school students come alive during your talk with them.
    I know they listened intently to you.
