Here’s what some of our Clockwork students had to say about joining the program, working with us and their end results…
“You can finally have your employees acting like owners”
Author of Clockwork
“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.”
Creator of Impacting Millions
“This program exceeded my expectations. I have stopped working 9-13 hour days, I now work approximately 6 hours a day but I’m working on more fulfilling tasks that are moving the business forward.”
The Bucketlist Bombshells
“I had such a great experience! I would totally recommend this to anyone in my position. Running a business as a solo founder is hard, so it is nice to get input from someone outside my company. My team members have been happy to take over some of the roles that I have been holding onto and doing by myself. I’m more conscious about the changes that I need to implement each week in order for my business to depend less on me.”
Founder at Ombu Labs, The Lean Software Boutique
“The run like clockwork system will help you create that lifestyle freedom and help your business just grow”

Screw the Nine to Five
“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.”
Owner @ Incite Tax
“Run Like Clockwork has helped me envision what I truly want to achieve with my business and who I want to be as a leader.

“Participating in Run Like Clockwork Accelerator has allowed me to step more fully into my role as a CEO. It’s given me permission to let go of the activities I was holding onto, stop being a bottleneck to the business, and make informed decisions about our future as a company. We’ve made strategic hires, dropped tasks that weren’t producing ROI, and shifted our team into roles they love. My co-CEO and I are planning to take our first simultaneous vacation since founding the business nine years ago, and we feel more prepared than ever.”
