Tulsa, Oklahoma – Clay Clark, the founder of the online education platform for entrepreneurs and business people was featured on the Veteran On the Move podcast. The podcast was founded by Joe Crane, a 24-year military veteran. The podcast focuses on helping both military men and women to make a successful transition from the military into the civilian business and entrepreneurial worlds.
Joe focuses on interviewing some of the most influential people in the area of entrepreneurship. As a customer service expert, Clark has traveled around the world working with and speaking to many of America’s top brands including UPS, Maytag University, Farmers Insurance, Hewlett Packard, and O’Reilly Auto Parts. Clark and his wife live in Tulsa, Oklahoma where they raise their 5 children while overseeing the growth of their 9 businesses.
Clark started his first successful business out of his college dorm room in 1999. In 2002, Clark was named as the Metro Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year. In 2007, he began to grab national attention when he received the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Since that time, he and his business partners, NBA Hall of Fame basketball player, David Robinson, and the former Executive Vice President of Operations of Walt Disney World Resort, Lee Cockerell, have worked together to launch Thrive15.com. Thrive15.com’s mission is to mentor millions by providing them with an engaging, online, video-based business school experience at 1% of the cost of traditional business school.
The site currently boasts worldwide subscribers in over 40 countries and has begun to experience massive growth. The firm is privately held, although as Clark points out, “the venture capitalists have been calling.”
