Business and Life Coach Clay Nelson to Address Contractors and Remodelers at the 13th Annual CMBA Builders' Expo

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2007

Builders and remodeling contractors will gain insight on improving their construction business' bottom line as nationally known business coach takes the stage January 24, 2007 at the 13th Annual CMBA Builders' Expo in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

Nelson is set to present two programs at this year's Expo. The first, Improving Your Construction Company's Bottom Line will focus on what has been Nelson's passion in 30 years of corporate leadership: how to make a business more successful without requiring longer hours and harder work–through effective business planning, using a personal plan to keep one's batteries charged, and honing delegation and leadership skills to build an unstoppable team.

The second program, Implement What You've Learned, Teach What You Know is designed to help construction business owners keep the momentum going long after the Expo is over, by showing them how to teach what they've learned to their teams–their employees, subcontractors and suppliers.

“I spent 14 years as the head of my own construction company, and I know the challenges we face, both on the job with those who have entrusted us to remodel or build their homes, and with our own families that we work so hard to provide for.” Nelson explains. “It's very easy to fall into the trap of work-work-work, and to sacrifice our own happiness and that of our loved ones because we convince ourselves that our livelihood depends on it. But it doesn't have to be that way. Success can be fun!”

Nelson has spent the past two decades providing business and life coaching to those in the construction industry. His company, Clay Nelson Life Balance, was borne out of his own life philosophy: To teach what one has learned in life is the greatest gift one has to give. The company's innovative programs teach individuals and businesses how to set goals, get past what stops them from accomplishing them, and create written plans that help them attain extraordinary results.

Every year, Nelson presents his life balance ideas and tools nationwide to eager participants at workshops and conventions of all sizes, as well as to listeners of his weekly KZSB AM 1290 Santa Barbara News-Press radio station talk show. He is a contributor to Remodeling Magazine, and has been a featured speaker at many national education events and conferences, including The Remodeling Show, and Custom Builder Symposium. In February of 2007, Nelson will present Business Planning Basics for Today's Builder at the International Builders Show in Orlando, FL.
