About Rick Williams

Welcome to mindbodygolf.  What can you expect here?  A little of everything involving food, music, golf. Sometimes musings on life in general.  You can also see what I’m doing with food over at The Inefficient Kitchen.

Over 200 posts, 10,000 views and 93 unique country visits (always amazing someone in Brazil or Vietnam is interested in my writing!) and over 1,000 followers.  Needless to say, I’m humbled.

I’m an amateur cook….and I love that our two girls are taking an interest in how food comes together to make a meal, and where the food comes from.  The golf part is something that is uniquely me, a passion I’ve cultivated since I was 10.  A peaceful, meditative activity that continues to fascinate me.  Food, music and writing keep me busy.

I love music and feel that along with food, both are constants in my life that always brings joy and curiosity.  Activities that keep my brain engaged and active are a wonder that never ceases to amaze me.  Staying grounded and grateful is helpful. Not to mention the ever-present soccer activities! New to 2016 was becoming a certified Grade 8 United States Soccer Federation Referee and working 45 matches. I’ve enjoyed learning a new skill that keeps me active and engaged in a sport I love.

I’m also a PGA Professional in the Philadelphia Section PGA (United States).

In a nutshell, I fell into an inbound marketing job by happenstance, find I love it, and discovered I totally dig analyzing data.

When I think back over the past 20 years, I find that I’m a talented sales professional with a strong marketing background.

Running campaigns, collecting data, looking at trends, utilizing content and social media to attract engagement and truly make an impact on a business is such a cool thing.  Bringing valuable, timely, inspiring and relevant information to a person or business that is “about them” and tells a compelling story, while at the same time providing a solution they need? Priceless.

Tell me your stories, your kitchen adventures, your success on the course.  Most of all, stay curious.

This blog is over at the new The Inefficient Kitchen site, on Twitter @rickwilliamspga, G+, with LinkedIn. I enjoy hearing what other people are all about. Comments on my thoughts are very welcome, too

Recap: 

Client success focused professional with proven ability to deploy empathy and active listening skills into results.

I’m an experienced sales and marketing professional in both start-ups and large corporations. I love to cook, and I miss coaching a good deal. There’s nothing better than helping a person reach a goal, achieve a level of satisfaction or learning a new skill to be more efficient in what they do. I have expertise in client onboarding, education, product support, B2B sales leadership and distribution sales, cloud products, and content creation. My passion is problem-solving to provide exceptional client support and assistance, leading clients to success. I manage projects, consult, sell and delight, using solution selling as my main tool.

  1. Hi, Rick! Thanks for your nice words after my father passed away. I can’t find them (were they on G+?) It’s been two weeks and I’m finally not feeling nauseated ALL the time. I think I’m still in shock, though. But, what I really wanted to tell you is that I’ve listed your blog as one of my faves on the latest post on my website lesliejochase.com, and on Pinterest, which I am still trying to figure out. I hope all is well with you and yours!

    1. Leslie, that’s very kind of you. I have weird outlook on death, having gone through a few with people close to me. Humor I find gets me through, and focusing on the living around us gets me through. My father passed away when I was 8. I didn’t….but it still sucks, right? I find for me that maintaining a feeling of gratefulness and reminding myself that each day is present, not last week or next week, works for me.

      Doesn’t make any of it any easier and please don’t take my words as all-encompassing, ok? I wish you and your family a little touch more of peace and comfort each day.
