Don’t let the “black hat” Clint is wearing in the above picture fool you. Even though he doesn’t shy away from doing what needs to get done to get the site ranking, he plays all “white hat” with his incredibly sharpened On-Page SEO Skills…at first.But then, if he needs to roll up his sleeves to take on a dirty player, Butler can through it back harder. It’s only then… the black hat he is wearing befits him. 😉

While in the Military, Clint managed to serve in about every position available to him during that time, from Machine Gunner to 1st Sergeant to Military Police Working Dog Handler & Kennel Master.
He was also deployed to three combat zones, Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
During that time he received (three) Bronze Star Medals AND an Army Commendation Medal for Valor.

A couple of years before his retirement Clint knew that he no longer wanted to be in the Law Enforcement field, (despite earning his BA in Criminal Justice) so with a renewed sense of purpose and a desire to own and operate his own business, Clint started learning about Internet Marketing, specifically, lead generation AND SEO!
Even though Clint says he will never stop learning, he now holds a master’s degree in Internet Marketing, a master’s degree in Business Intelligence, and a master’s degree in Public Relations.
