My name is Nathan R Mitchell. I am the Founder of the business coaching and Leadership Development company, Clutch Consulting. I am an experienced business coach, leadership trainer, corporate speaker, published author, and college professor. I am currently a Professor of Business and Marketing at Brown Mackie College of Tulsa, and was recently named one of five “Master Educators of Business” in 2013 across all Brown Mackie College campuses in the United States.
I am committed to my purpose of Growing Businesses & Empowering People. I do this by helping business owners and entrepreneurs build the business through business coaching, leadership training, and business strategy. I also work with career professionals, executives, and other leaders by helping them become more engaged in the workplace by finding purpose, meaning, and fulfillment in their life and work.
Although I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Entrepreneurship, an MBA from Missouri State University, and a Certification in Professional Business Coaching, none of it ever came easy for me. My early years in college carried with them frustration and indecisiveness. My first two semesters I earned a 1.8 and 1.0 GPA respectively. Needless to say, the university no longer desired to have me as a student. After careful consideration on my part, followed by a handwritten, heartfelt letter to the Dean of Admissions, I was accepted back into school for one more semester to prove myself. And I did.
After graduating I accepted a Corporate, Retail Operations position with a Fortune 50 company where I had 11 years of success before leaving to pursue other endeavors. In the corporate sector, I was responsible for overseeing store locations and mid-level managers. According to many people’s standards you could say I had achieved the American Dream. I met my loving wife, Sarah, there, and was earning six figures a year. But, despite my success, it was a struggle. I was unfulfilled, unsatisfied, and unhappy. Like so many others, I found myself frustrated and lacking purpose. And because of that I became ineffective, disengaged, and struggled to lead others effectively in the organization. At the end of the day, my ability to positively impact the company’s bottom-line had become compromised.
In 2010 I started my business coaching and leadership development company, Clutch Consulting, with one simple purpose: Growing Businesses and Empowering People!
I love affecting change, mentoring others, creating new ideas and innovative ways of doing things, giving others perspective, and helping companies have better bottom lines.
