We’re thrilled to invite you into The Run Like Clockwork Accelerator to take your business from shipwreck to ship shape in the next 12 months — and set you up to take a permanent vacation from your business and sail off into the sunset!
We individually review each application, so I already know we can help you make a real change in how you do business — and how your business supports you. Even if you aren’t sure you’re quite ready, rest assured: we wouldn’t accept you if you weren’t a good fit.
Let’s get your business into ship shape so you can retire, pass off the business to someone else, sell, or start a new adventure while your crew runs everything on cruise control.
We want you to get your business to a place that allows you to be present for your LIFE.
And whatever life throws your way?
The Accelerator will make sure you’re ready for it.
The RLC Accelerator includes 9 modules of comprehensive, detailed training designed to walk you step-by-step from being involved in the day-to-day of your business to setting you up for a permanent vacation — whether that’s retirement, selling, or letting someone else steer the ship — using our proven Clockwork framework.
This isn’t just a program that will tell you “how to do it” — I mean, if you’ve read the Clockwork book already, you know we already give you the steps there — this is an experience built to actually get you + your crew implementing and producing real RESULTS.
This is about helping you create your unique exit strategy and the Clockwork BREAKTHROUGH you’ve been looking for so you can stop being the captain of this ship… and it still sails on cruise control whether you’re at the helm or not.
So, whether you’ve read the book, taken some steps on your own, or are completely starting from scratch… Accelerator is how you’ll finally reach that goal of having a business that runs like clockwork.
You may be wondering how you’ll explain Clockwork to your current crew…
That’s why we’ve created a host of resources inside Accelerator specifically to help you get them all onboard.
But inside the Accelerator, you’ll discover exactly how to assess if your current team are in the right roles:
- How to rebalance the team so that everyone is working in their zone of genius.
- Special “crew member only” calls where they can ask questions and express concerns to our coaches, without worrying about how that will appear to you, Captain.
In fact, if you ask us, you shouldn’t lead a crew without this information — it’s that valuable!
Take a Tour of the Boat
We make sure your business is ship-shape in all these areas:
The Captain Quarters
This is where the Captain needs to spend the majority of their time in the business, doing what we call “design” work to navigate and lead the ship forward.
You’ll learn more about this in the Vision + Culture, QBR, and Bottleneck + Planning modules.
The bridge holds all of the information for the entire business to make sure it’s charting the right course, we’ll help you navigate how and where to gather the necessary data to make informed decisions as the Captain and crew.
You will learn more about this in the 4D, QBR, Metrics, and Bottleneck + Planning modules.
The Main Deck
The main deck is the heart of your business, it creates the entire culture of what your team and customers experience.
You’ll learn more about culture in every module of our program because it’s integrated into everything we teach.
The Engine Room
The engine room holds all of the systems & mechanics of your business, systems allow you to maintain consistency, quality, and keep things moving forward without errors.
You’ll learn more about this in the 4D, QBR, Capturing Systems, Rebalancing the Team and 3T modules.
The Crew Mess
The crew mess is representative of the team members that are supporting you and the entire business. They are integral in moving you towards the vision.
You’ll learn more about this in every module of our program.

Meet the Crew
The captain of our ship
I’m an operations + efficiency expert with 10+ years of experience saving time and money for large corporations. When Mike Michalowicz approached me to contribute my expertise to his book, Clockwork, a new partnership was born.
I designed The Accelerator to take all the operations + efficiency tools I knew from corporate and apply them to small businesses. I’ve created everything inside the program to speak to the unique struggles and challenges you face running your own small business.
And I’m not just the creator of The Accelerator… I’m also a case study!
In 2020, I took my own “4-week vacation” when I went on maternity leave — although I’m sure all the mamas out there will attest this wasn’t a real “vacation” to take care of our newborn. I personally ended up taking 6 weeks completely off and then slowly weaned myself back over the next 4 months.
But having our business in a place where I can take time off COMPLETELY unplugged without having to stress about it is what I’ve worked for, it’s what our team has worked for, and I’m so incredibly grateful we clockworked the business so that I can sleep at night (hahah just kidding, no one sleeps through the night around here) knowing our clients are being supported, our company is growing, and I don’t need to be there to make things run.

Are you ready to Captain Up?
You started your business for a reason: for the freedom it would provide you, for the ability to make a positive impact on the world, for the financial support it would offer you and your family.
But somewhere along the way, you veered off course.
If you want to reach that ultimate destination you had in mind when you started this journey, it’s time to Captain up!
It’s time to accept that your role as Captain means you have to stop doing some things and start doing others.
And the first thing you need to do is to stop making excuses and start clockworking your business.
“I can’t find the right person to hire…”
Hiring one person isn’t the answer to your clockwork problems because that unicorn doesn’t exist. That’s the bad news. The good news is that you can find and hire an incredible crew of awesome mortals through your CEO mindset. And we can show you how.
“I need to do this ONE thing before I join…”
Maybe you’re thinking you need to land this client or finish that project before you commit to clockworking your business. But the truth is, if you don’t have tools, systems, and support in place to serve that client or finish that project — you’ll be continually disappointed. The horizon will always seem just out of reach.
“I need to make the time…”
Friend. Let’s be real here: your work is always going to expand to fill the time you have to complete it — that’s Parkinson’s Law. You’re never going to “have” the time or “make” the time to clockwork your business. (Because if you did? You probably wouldn’t need us.) Instead, you need to just dive in, make this a priority, and let us help you sort out the rest.
The sooner you realize that you’re the one with the power to steer the ship…
The sooner you can get your business back on course to the freedom, impact, and financial rewards you desire.
Clockworking your business will make everything more efficient, which means spending less money, less time, and less energy and getting bigger and better results.
And when you’re focused on efficiency, your profits grow.
Many of our students see their investment in The Accelerator returned to them many times over once they’ve Clockworked their business — not to mention the invisible ROI of having less stress and more satisfaction.

Still Have Questions?
We know that business owners who feel like they have the least time to dedicate to clockworking need Accelerator the most. If you can commit to making it a priority to clockwork your business, we can help you figure out the rest. In fact, most students get hours of their week back by the time they finish the second module.
We offer tons of resources inside The Accelerator to get your current team members onboard — including tools for assessing everyone’s true strengths, guidance for rebalancing roles, and special “crew only” support calls where they can ask questions and express concerns directly to our coaches.
Every industry is different, but we’ve proven that Accelerator’s tools and systems work with every business we’ve come across — from a cupcake bakery to a cleaning service to a high-profile law firm. If we accepted your application (and we did!), we believe Accelerator can help you.
We’ve created a payment plan to make joining Accelerator as easy on your cash flow as possible! And when you consider how much time you stand to save, and how much more money and profits you stand to make by clockworking your business, we hope the investment is a no-brainer!
