Uncategorized May 18, 2023

I am Matt Clark, a Speaker and expert Team Strategist. And I'm on a mission to transform individuals and teams into high performing champions.

Matt says it best....here's a bit more about Coach Matt: "Back in the day, I was a NASCAR championship Pit Crew Coach for drivers Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson. I built high performance teams that produced winning results.

Despite that success, I battled with imposter syndrome and limiting beliefs for over 20 years.

In my journey of self-understanding, I studied the neuroscience behind how beliefs are formed, and how they can be changed.

And this is what I focus on when speaking to business leaders, organizations, and teams so they have the tools of mindset, culture, communication and execution to win in business, and more importantly, in life!

Fred there's magic in creating a business jam-packed with creativity and vision. His business, Clearview Washing LLC is technology rooted, with core values in company culture and customer service. Not what you would come to expect from an exterior cleaning company. At 19 years old, Fred caught the entrepreneurial bug when his parents had scheduled a window cleaning at their home – the company never showed up, and never even picked up the phone! Soon after witnessing this shoddy customer service, Fred put his studies in entrepreneurship to work. He joined forces with his dad, Fred Sr. to create a full-service, customer-centric exterior cleaning company. Fred is a Certified Conquer Coach and serves on the Entrepreneurial Advisory Counsel of his Alma Mater, Rowan University. He also beta tests cutting edge cleaning technology, including soft wash drones and solar cleaning robots. A life-long Yankees fan, Fred's true “field of dreams” is what has been created in...
