Klark Brown

I spend a larger amount of my time than I should doing my small part improving this industry. I give people ideas and inspiration. Why? Because the momentum of 12,000 people working towards one thing is stronger than 1 person.

In exchange I ask that if you would like to get experienced and successful help from people who have DONE it, you reach out to us. We love what we do, and you will to. 

If you are a Restoprenuer™️ and want a guide (think Yoda to Skywalker) to help, thats what we do. www.restorationadvisers.com or simply reply to this email.

Observations of the Heavy Load-Entrepreneurial Depression

Ive been writing, speaking about and teaching around this topic for not quite a year yet. Entrepreneurial Depression. When I say these words together, I've been shocked at the almost instant recognition in friends eyes. It's been proving over and over to be REAL and RELATABLE. I wrote about it here: https://www.restorationadvisers.com/...

What do we do with the wrong people?

I’ve been doing a deep dive this week on the idea around key characteristics. These are more about “what kind of people will make my organization or business magical?” The character markers that not only make customers want to camp out with you but make other good people come work there and help you make the campers happy. These are un...

Not while Nolan was pitching

Maybe you have heard me talk about or write memories about my dad’s father who we called Tractor Brown. You’ll need to dig through old blogs to find out why. It’s worth it. I think of him often. Today was one of those. I got my love of baseball from Tractor. We would sit and listen to the Rangers on his radio. He would chew Redman, sun...

Remember the game: Show your work?

I'm spending a few hours this week to get a bigger jump on a course/ program I've been working on for NEW/ first time mangers. There is such a wide open opportunity to elevate some of our emerging leaders. Once they are autonomous, imagine what the owner/ Senior Leaders could achieve I am simply sharing a simple framework for delegatin...

Be ok with losing support

I hope this encourages at least 1 person. One lurker. Not everyone will understand what you are doing. If you start a new job that is not what you would normally do. If you start a new company. If you start a new project or passion. Others might not "get it". You are suppose to do what's expected. Mainly what they expect. Few people ta...

Business isn't war !

Business is tough. It takes strategy, weapons (tools) and a tenacity. But it's not war. We hear words like assault, battle, conquor and murder. Cool. That makes for good motivational social media posts, but it's just not how things are done. We like a business that's calm, beneficial, easy to use with as little bloodshed as possible. I...

I like that word. It's up there in the fun column like ambidextrous and waffling. Synchronized Components I look at things as harmonious teams. Independent gears in a larger interconnected environment. I don't know where it came from originally and I know I didn't always have the skill or full understanding to galvanize it. I hadn't fa...

Wise words about the WHO, and less of the what !

Thanks for Joe Polish for saying this so well. I want to share with you and challenge yourself with the "Less is more" philosophy. --------------------- You can either learn HOW to do something – or – you can find the right WHO. I know a lot of stuff. Although I love learning and I’m a lifelong learner, I’m at a stage where I don’t wan...

Harvesting has changed

In this weeks writing I want to share a very odd but powerful culmination of influenced stories and things I've heard over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Let me start and say that I'm in a "phase" of simplicity. Meaning I'm exploring the world all around and taking stock of how needlessly complicate things have become. If you have ever seen...

Team Bravo comes to Slidell

I've been working on a book and I'm on a big career section- Katrina A few nuggets. This is first staging ground for Team Bravo. Team Alpha was the forward scout and sales team. A small tactical team that was self contained and were planned to inch and creep closer and closer to spot locations and secure areas. Team Bravo was the heavy...

Take your shot

Squints made a very important life choice that hot day of 1962. He knew he could spend his whole life wondering what it would be like to kiss Wendy Peppercorn or he could man up and be courageous. Life presents us with so many incredible opportunities and experiences, but for some reason as adults....we start convincing ourselves that ...

It's about them, not me

In today's Maxwell reading, I'm reminded that none of this is about me. Things are more and more self promotional. I'm not pleased with it and looking for new ways to be available to help people who might need it. Thumbnails, attention seeking titles and algorithms are decaying the mind. Enjoy this read. I'll be looking at my actions c...

The truth about meetings

A call between two people isn't a meeting. It's a talk between two people. A meeting with 5 people for 1 hour is the equivalent of 5 hours. It's 5 productive and expensive hours. If the average person on the call makes $40 an hour, that was a $200 call at cost. It's hopeful that the subject leads to an action that creates an ROI. I bel...

Captain Sobel wasn't trusted

Captain Sobel was deployed to command of Easy Company, 2nd battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Division. If this sounds remotely familiar, he was a primary part of the HBO series, Band of Brothers. Captain Sobel was not well like. He was a hard screw. He was an officer and trained as such, which more times than not, your teams want you...

The work you should do....

Isn't always the work we want to do. It's uncomfortable and there might be a sign that says "Enter at your own risk". But that sign was put there from some insecure inside voice. One that is more afraid of failure than you. But you can ignore it. Prove it wrong. If you are like me, anytime I've pushed into and beyond my fear or hesitat...

Your favorite hoody

The voice inside my big ole head tells me everyone had a "favorite hoody" I do and I tell myself when I'm wearing it, I do my best work. Before we do down that abyss, I'd like to talk about the term "best work". It's not what sells the most, gets the most likes, shared 1000's of time or anything as arbitrary as that.

A Lesson for tonight. First. Clear your mind that this story is coming from a person that sells a service. I'm a restorers. I worked 1000's of jobs. I've worked for others and myself.

Sharing a quick note I received today from Seth Godin. Great applicable daily newsletter. They set daily intentions. If you have frustrations and grievances, I hope this inspires you to ask "What else can I do?" A protest or a project? Protests let off steam. They organize people who might not show up by creating a moment in time where...

Oatmeal has never been the same

In 2008, I was part of a cleanup that challenged my breakfast forever. Growing up in a tiny East Texas town, I sadly never really put much thought to what I would do as an adult. Of course I would be a fireman, a stunt man (thanks to The Fall Guy), and eventually a pilot/ astronaut. DUH. Isn't that what everyone wanted to do. But those...
