If you’ve been part of our Facebook family for a while, you’re probably already hooked on our live client interviews.
If you’re new to the tribe or just passing through, let me paint a picture for you:
Every week, like clockwork, our very own Matthew Shetler fires up the live feed and settles into a virtual fireside chat with some truly remarkable folks.
These are our clients, who are not just successful, but have also transformed their businesses and their lives.
They dive deep, unpacking their journeys, their strategies, their highs, and their lows. And as they share, we all learn and grow together.
But here’s where it gets really interesting.
Just when you think the conversation’s winding down, Matthew throws in a curveball. He asks each guest to share one nugget of wisdom—the kind of advice that’s been their guiding star.
The responses? Pure gold!
Every single week, we are treated to nuggets of wisdom so profound and so genuine, they strike a chord in all of us.
Then it hit us… wouldn’t it be downright selfish to keep all this wisdom to ourselves?
That, my friend, is why we’ve decided to compile all this wisdom in one place.
So, whether you’re part of our community, a first-time visitor, or just someone on the hunt for some serious inspiration, these words have the power to ignite change. These are the raw, real, and invaluable insights that you can apply, no matter where you’re at in your journey.
Are you excited yet? Because you should be!
We’ve put together 15 powerful life lessons from some of our most successful coaches, all packed into this article.
So, are you ready to get your mind blown?

Jenne Todd on Commitment and Mentorship
“Get a lot of mentorship. Follow those proven methods instead of flailing around trying to find a solution. Go all in, read a hundred books on a topic, not just one. Don’t assume mastery with mere dabbling. Full immersion and continuous learning, that’s my advice.”
Why Jenne Todd is Worth Your Attention

Eric MacDougall on Making an Impact
“Get clear on the person you’re serving. Focus on them and why you’re doing what you’re doing. Allow yourself to step into your power and serve others. Don’t undervalue the impact that you can have on another person’s life.”
Why Eric MacDougall is Worth Your Attention
Eric MacDougall’s story is a testament to the power of focused commitment and the application of the right strategies.

Blake Arnold on Authenticity and Persistence
“First, never give up on yourself. You should be your number one cheerleader. Second, get laser-focused on something that’s going to produce results, let everything else be peripheral. Third, when you take risks, be genuine. Don’t try to be something other than who you are because people can see it, feel it, and detect it.”
Why Blake Arnold is Worth Your Attention
Blake Arnold’s journey from an IT professional to a thriving real estate investment coach is as inspiring as they come.
Despite initial setbacks, including a rocky start in real estate leading to substantial financial losses, he joined our Prominence Partnership Program.
With C&C, Blake figured out how to run his coaching business better. He created his ‘three Cs’ program and in just three days, he attracted 36 potential clients from his tiny group of 73 members.
In a short time, Blake made $128,000 in coaching revenue. And he’s now aiming for a monthly income of $100,000 and more.
His story is a great example of how passion, dedication, and the right help from C&C can turn into a profitable journey.
Katrina Stead on Getting Started
“Once you taste freedom, you can never go back. Life is about showing up and just getting started. Just start, honestly, that’s how we did it with our business and coaching.”
Michael Stead on Business Challenges
“Running a business is never smooth sailing. But as you develop the skills and the knowledge, it gets easier over time. I would just say, choose your hard.”
Why Michael and Katrina Stead Are Worth Your Attention
After facing a major setback with a failed business venture, Katrina and Michael Stead were left scrambling to regain their footing. That’s when they discovered the power of short-term rentals and the impact they could make.

With the right strategies and support from C&C, they were able to take charge of their marketing, revive a dead Facebook group, and create a steady stream of income through their coaching and training business.
Today, their story serves as an inspirational reminder that even when you fall, you can rise stronger, all you need to do is to take that first step!
Matt Van Der Laar on Self-Reliance
“Nobody’s coming to save you. You’ve got to do it for yourself. I started to realize that I had to do it for myself and because of me and nobody else.”
Why Matt Van Der Laar is Worth Your Attention
Matt Van Der Laar, a passionate online health and fitness coach, was facing a decline in leads and a dwindling TikTok presence. But instead of panicking, he took action.

Why Abigail Moss is Worth Your Attention
Abigail Moss was on the brink of giving up her practice as a shaman healer, despite her unique healing methods and dedicated client base. Her marketing strategies were scattered, client acquisition was inconsistent, and the business highs and lows were becoming unbearable.
That’s when she decided to team up with Clients & Community (C&C). She sought more structure, a reliable marketing approach, and an increase in confidence to truly value her offerings.
And guess what? She got all that, and more!
Abigail gained the confidence and clarity to refine her marketing, resulting in an astounding $54,000 in a single promo cycle! Her community grew, and her client engagement soared.
Her story teaches us that with a solid marketing strategy and an understanding of your audience, the sky’s the limit!

Why Joe Sebestyen is Worth Your Attention
Joseph Sebestyen started off as an educator with a passion for helping student-athletes ace their AP history exams. But, his vision to run his own online tutoring business, Athletes in AP History, was hindered by difficulties in client acquisition and revenue generation.

Christina Beckford on the Importance of Trials and Tribulations

Why Christina Beckford is Worth Your Attention
Christina Beckford is an army veteran turned software engineer who took the tech world by storm. Initially, Christina was offering her hard-earned knowledge to her Facebook community for free, struggling with structuring her business model. But that’s when C&C came into the picture.

Andrea Engstrom on Confronting Negative Self-Talk
“Head trash, as I call it, is when our mind starts telling us lies about what we’re capable of. It’s important to recognize these thoughts and transform them into affirmations of our true potential. Remember, we get to decide who we are going to be every single day. Change those lies into affirmations and consciously strive towards who you want to become.”
Why Andrea Engstrom is Worth Your Attention
Andrea Engstrom, once a successful business coach and real estate investor, found her potential being boxed in by her income ceiling and a narrow client base. With a firm belief in her abilities, she sought the expertise of Clients & Community.

Within a mere six weeks of her first workshop, she generated a jaw-dropping $63,000 in sales!
And remember the Facebook group she couldn’t sell a ticket to? It exploded to a robust community of 550 members in just a month – all without spending a penny on ads!
Andrea’s story shines as a testament to the power of persistence, strategic thinking, and the right guidance.
Brandon Foster on Personal Accountability and Power
“The life you have is the life you’re willing to accept. I learned this by overcoming a victim mentality and realizing my power of free will and choice. Your external world is a reflection of your internal beliefs about yourself and your capabilities. Decide to take control of your life and believe in your worth and potential. If you’re not willing to accept your current situation anymore, make the decision to change it.”
Why Brandon Foster is Worth Your Attention
Before Brandon Foster hooked up with C&C, his coaching business was bringing in an average of just $3,000 per month. And this, despite his unique approach that blended storytelling and emotional connection, honed from his time as a circus clown and his master’s degree in screenwriting.
But once he got on board with our Prominence Partnership Program, things really took off. His average monthly revenue quintupled to $15,000, with some months even soaring to $60,000. And he managed all this while maintaining his deep commitment to client satisfaction and personal fulfillment.
Brandon not only found the keys to unlocking his business potential but also stayed true to his unique coaching style.
