Our Amazing Clients

Here is what some of them have to say about Promoteclay
I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing David Theus for over nine years. We originally met via a professional membership organization. In no time at all, he quickly became a mentor, accountability partner, and friend. David is the consummate professional. He has proven business experience and provides sound recommendations and applicable methodologies. His servant-heart, sense of humor and passion for life leaves a positive lasting impression. I value our bi-monthly “coffee talk with an expert" as I continue to grow personally and professionally.

I met David when at a Clay Chamber event and I have been meeting with him ever since. We meet monthly and he has assisted me further developing my business plan, ensuring that I take time out to spend quiet time in prayer and reflection, and he is a great accountability partner. With his help, I have positioned my company to be successful in 2018. I would highly recommend using his services.

Anyone who’s not sure where they’re at in their career and is looking for some help or the extra push should go to David! Having a third person view of my goals and aspirations have helped me to cut out the unrealistic from the realistic expectations I have about my career. I especially find David’s coaching helpful since I’m soon to graduate this year (2018) and was afraid of starting off on the wrong foot; not anymore! David gave me the right mindset and resources to face the right direction and move forward! I can’t thank him enough!
