“This program showed me how to start scaling my business + empowering my team to be able to think 3 steps ahead when i REALIZED I COULDN’T GROW ANYMORE ALONE.”
If you've ever said...
I wish my team would just take some initiative, why can't they be 3 steps ahead of me?
I need better systems, we have such a great product/service, but can't scale without more systems.
I wish my team would just make decisions on their own / stop asking me SO many questions.
I’d love to serve more customers, but none of my team members can do what I do, so we're maxed out.
I was busy all day putting out fires, but wasn’t able to get any of my own work done!
I need to let this person go, but I’m afraid of what company knowledge lies with them...
There must be a better way, but I don’t have time to figure it all out...
I don’t mind answering questions and emails while on vacation, I just do it before everyone wakes up...
THEN CLOCKWORK: CORE IS FOR YOU.
INSIDE CLOCKWORK CORE YOU WILL FOCUS ON THE 3 KEY OPERATIONAL AREAS…

"I feel like I'm 80% there to having a clockwork business. But I literally lack the know how to get the other 20%. Even reading the book, the concepts make sense, but the application of solving the issues that are holding back that 20% is so specific to my business, I didn't think I could do it on my own. And I still don't think I can. That's why I knew I needed to be at the workshop, so that the RLC team could help me see what I was missing."
-- John Briggs, Owner @ Incite Tax
"This workshop was fantastic! I wanted my team to run like clockwork, without my constant input, and now we're well on our way to making that a reality. Adrienne and Tyler were the best hosts. The content was killer and it was just the right amount, not overwhelming. The best part of it was that everything was very actionable + transformational. I loved that the event wasn't just about learning but also doing right there on the spot."
-- Selena Soo, creator of Impacting Millions
