I Help Business Owners Take Better Control of Their Businesses.

Throughout my career, I was coached and mentored by many Godly, generous and highly experienced men and women who really cared about me and my success. So after selling my business and retiring at 48, I knew I had an obligation to share my experience to help the next generation of business owners like so many had done for me. 

I’m local. I’m not part of a national franchise brand. You can reach me when you need me. Also, I don’t take on more than a few clients at a time, so you and your business remain my focus.

I look forward to working with you.

Results I've Helped Create

"Clay has consistently provided good advice, given clear insight, and planted the seeds of leadership that have helped our company to grow. I know that every time I call, I’ll get sound business guidance. In turn, he's trusted us with his own clients through referral as we work together for mutual gain. This is how business relationships should be. We HIGHLY recommend that you contact PTBP yourself if you want: a proven process to get on track and plan an end goal; a push to be your best as a business owner, community leader, and better communicator; clear direction and precise feedback."

“Being provided with business coaching from people that actually built businesses for themselves, did a good job and most importantly – made money – is a real blessing. The folks at Part Time Business Partners provide insights that only a business owner could and they have worked as hard at making my business successful as I suspect they did theirs. I’m grateful.”

Phil Monroe
"I own an appliance repair company. I started with PTBP back in November 2019. It’s now June 2020. Last year I was a mess – disorganized, stressed-out, not sure where I and the company were headed. They helped me straighten out my books, figure out where my money was being spent, developed a new website, etc. But I won’t bore you with details. Here’s the part I like: Gross sales over the same time period last year: Up 48%. Net profit: Up 40%. Profits are up, and my blood pressure is down. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."
The Appliance Doctor
"Clay has been extremely diligent in working with me and my team to get all of our systems and processes tightened up to prepare for growth. He has a strong ability to take the things we have learned organically over the years and help to build written processes. Additionally, he has helped us get focused on the key indicators in our business that are already making us more profitable. If you need help getting your small business to the next level you should definitely talk to Clay and Part Time Business Partners."

“I have owned and operated a tree company in the Chattanooga area for over 7 years. Although we have been blessed with a good crew and a plentiful customer base, I was struggling with helping my business get to the next level. Clay and his team have helped me to build a strong foundation and guide my business in a better more profitable direction. As a small business owner, I often feel overwhelmed by the responsibilities that plague me from day to day and it is a relief to know these guys are here to help.”

“PTBP has helped us develop best business practices and processes necessary to take our retail operations to the next level of performance. They have a ‘boots on the ground approach’ and have given us very genuine personal service. They are not satisfied until they know their clients are showing success with what they have developed. Their diverse expertise has greatly helped with our broad range of needs.”
United States Stove Company
Ryan Pappas
"PTBP has opened my eyes to the realties of being a business owner. For years I have provided a service and then simply waited on payment. PTBP has unveiled to me how much more there is to successfully operating a healthy and prosperous business. I have personally been fascinated and impressed with how they are always there when you need them. PTBP is a great investment for any business owner. The help, guidance, and insight that you obtain from their services is immeasurably valuable."

"Part Time Business Partners helped us assess problems and where they were actually coming from in our video production business. Clay did a remarkable job at slowing it down, breaking down the processes, quickbooks and accounting, and showing us the true numbers and costs behind our business we hadn’t been able to see before. After working with them, I feel confident that I understand where we are, that I know the right steps for moving forward, and I feel like I have a killer coach in my corner."

"I worked with Clay and Charlotte Dennis at Southern Hearth and Patio. Clay and Charlotte successfully grew Southern Hearth and Patio through sound business practices, strong vendor and customer relationships, and the willingness to take calculated risks to expand their business. They both have a solid business acumen, coaching skills, and an entrepreneurial spirit. I highly recommend Part Time Business Partners for anyone looking to start a business or grow and existing business."

"Clay and John helped me with a career change and I can honestly say I could have never managed it without their help. They were there every step of the way, not only to get the process completed, but to pick me up when I questioned myself and to give me direction when I thought I was lost.

“Over the past few months, I’ve gleaned pragmatic approaches to my business and built incentives directly related to productivity. I’ve organized my goals and I’ve refined my vision with clarity and purpose. Without the collaborative work of PTBP, these things would’ve remained in a foggy cloud of mere intentions.”

"Clay and his team have helped me tremendously grow my business! The thoughtfulness, advice, and learning from their own failures is so valuable. Clay’s expertise in systems, and mapping out your goals made a huge impact on how I make decisions. Let’s be honest, working “on” your business instead of “in” your business takes a lot of sacrifice, but man is it worth it!"

Simple Steps to Success

It all starts with a single step.

I was once given this advice: “If you keep doin’ what you’re doin’, you’re gonna keep gettin’ what you’re gettin’.” 

That’s great advice. If you don’t like what’s happening around you, make a change. Not everyone can do that. Change can be scary. That’s why you need a coach. Someone who’s been through it all before and wants to help you succeed. 

Are you ready to take that first step?

Ready to start?

Change can be scary. But when you have a trusted coach to help guide you through, the first step is the hardest part.
