Episode 44: Rick Clemons – Coming Out, Giving Yourself Permission, and Discovering Your Life Orgasm

by | Jun 28, 2020 | Interviews with Leaders | 0 comments

“Everything I learned from coming out of the closet is why I’m where I am today.”

-Rick Clemons

It’s been said he takes you to the party, the pulpit, the wake, and back to the party. They’re right. It’s all true. That’s exactly how Rick Clemons wakes people and organizations up to disrupt the cultures that aren’t working for them; guides them to bust through the closets that hold them hostage, and kicks them in the ass to make the bold moves they need to make without apologies. He unexpectedly launched his entrepreneurial destiny, leveraging his past lives in hospitality, branding, marketing, and technology, discovering that coaching, consulting, speaking, writing and podcasting turned him on. He’s a world record holder, cyclist, and spends more money on wine than his daughters (that’s B.S., but close to the truth). Everything he knows about guiding people and organizations out to live uncloseted lives, he learned from coming out of his own closet. That’s no B.S.
