James Clarke’s hobbies include cheerleading for local businesses — including smoothie-specialist Blendtec. He also loves fast cars and owns a car that was on the Nascar circuit. When he closed his deal with My Fast PC, he gave the CEO a drag racing car. “My love for fast cars was once cool, but maybe it’s cold now,” Clarke laughs. (Photo by Dave Blackhurst)

James Clarke’s favorite beverage is also from his favorite first investor — his wife, who let him start Clearlink from her basement on a card table.

“I promised her that by the time she had our first child, I would be turning a profit,” Clarke says. “Her investment in the business didn’t just pay off financially. What could have been a terrible disaster turned out to be the best partnership decision I’ve ever made. She staked me and she staked our business.”

As it turns out, she also stakes his mornings with nutrition.
