We had the good fortune of connecting with Clinton Mansfield and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Clinton, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
To Provoke Positive Change in People and in their business. I’ve always loved Coaching people through their challenges in both business and in life. When people are better versions of themselves they crush it in business and life. When this happens we are able now to give back because we are in a position of strength. This is why a generous portion of our profits go back into the groups we serve including Our Protectors(Police, Fire, EMT, All Hospital Staff), Our Future(Children), Our People(Homeless/Elderly), Our Planet(Environment) ,Our Pets(animals and livestock). Companies and people choose which group means the most to them and we donate on their behalf.
What should our readers know about your business?
We Coach and Consult People in their personal lives as well as in their business. We aspire to “Provoke Positive Change” in their lives and their business. When we are able to accomplish this we then in return are able to give back to our causes and charitable groups. I worked as an Executive with a company for nearly 16 years and fell in love with leadership and management. As I began to evolve over the years it was obvious that I needed more and I finally left to pursue my Coaching and Consulting Practice. Although very gratifying, starting a business from scratch was very difficult , especially at first. Building a Brand that nobody knows makes you feel small and invisible at times , not why I was used to. I learned patience and perseverance go a long way, fast. The “End Game” goal of Provoke|Coach®️ is to create a legacy of service, compassion and positive change to those people and businesses that need it the most. This legacy will grow to generations to come and will help millions in the process.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well, I’d start in West Palm and head all the way down to the keys. I’d follow the coastline. I’d stop in WBP, Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Key Biscane , Brickell, South Beach, Pine Key and continue south. I’m a beach guy so I’d sow and most of my time by the water.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I think that I’ve had some of the best mentors, teachers, coaches that you could ever ask for. To name them all would be impossible. Although I learned a great deal from these great influencers, I would give recognition to one single soul, my wife. My wife(Joana Leao) is and always will be my biggest fan. She has been the one in my corner the whole time. From fresh out of college, through being an Executive in Corporate America to starting my own business and betting it all on “Me”. I will always be grateful of her and her support.
