About Clay 

Clay is a coach who works with people to help them reboot. Clay takes pleasure in being of service: from waiting tables at the Waffle House, to helping president Obama with his technology initiatives, to helping president Bush (Sr.) with his volunteering efforts. He's also the author of the book "The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption" -- a prescient book that foretold many of the struggles with fake news and information that's led to the culture of outrage we see today.

Clay started his first business, KnowPost.com, at age 19 between shifts at Waffle House. Though it didn't survive the 90s dot-com crash, Clay did not lose his entrepreneurial spirit. He has founded and sold several companies, guided others to substantial exits, and helped dozens of non-profits achieve their goals. He's been awarded the President's Volunteer Service Award for his volunteer work in education. 

Besides offering executive and recovery coaching, Clay is also a Level I Crossfit coach, an Agile scrum-master, and can still tell you the name of every combination hash browns are cooked at Waffle House. He lives in Charleston, SC with his wife, two sons, and their dog Scout.
