Create A Unique Brand of Hospitality feat. Pete Clare

Business Builder Way Ft. Pete Clare

This week’s episode of The Business Builder Way, was recorded back in 2018. This episode features Business Builder, Pete Clare. Pete is the founder of Turkey Trot Acres Lodge in Candor, New York. Pete is a friend, Pete is somebody with who I’ve spent a lot of time with. Pete is a creator extraordinaire, always with a new idea, and then he executes, he’s got guts!

In this episode, I ask Pete Clare questions about how did he create a celebrity hunt with NFL football players? How did Pete and his wife Sherry come together to create their unique brand of hospitality in upstate New York? How did they build a lodge from logs that they went and cut and peeled? How did they expand into record production and music festivals? And it was such a great conversation.

Pete Clare

Founder Pete Clare of Turkey Trot Acres in Candor, New York, for thirty-six years, has earned a national reputation as one of “America’s Premier Wild Turkey Hunting Destinations”. This honor was earned by over three decades of hard work and sticking to our original game plan… To provide quality hunting, lodging, and dining for our guests. We are proud of the fact that all of the hunting at Turkey Trot is the “Real Deal”. We hunt under strictly fair chase conditions, no game feeders, no high fences, or pen-raised gobblers. You will find thousands of acres of prime wildlife habitat and guides that know how to hunt!  For more information on ‘America’s Legendary Turkey Hunting Hangout’.




Coaching is an investment of time and money. It’s intense work that required you to be focused on your own personal and business growth. 



Groups of business owners who come together to learn, share encouragement and push one another toward new levels of greatness.



Your team needs intentional time away for training. Come to the farm to gain clarity, connection, and a path forward.



Book club is a great way to try out the network to see if it is a fit for you. Give it a try this month - it’s free and fun. Plus, you'll learn a lot from the book and conversation!



To say that I get it is an understatement. I have lived and worked through the good times and bad as a business owner, husband, parent and provider.

I grew up with strong role models who had entrepreneurship running through their blood. I learned from them - the good and the bad. But all of that didn’t stop me from making my own set of mistakes. I still had to make and learn from my own, sometimes catastrophic, errors of judgement.

Now, I am building a business just like you. I am proud of the growth I’ve accomplished within myself and my business. I also know that my growth is a journey, not a destination and that I need mentors, team members, coaches, and trusted friends to help me stay the course.
