Look at 3 different golf coach/golf course websites, navigate to “lessons” and see if you can find a success story or any reasons why you should engage with that coach or course. Watch the video version I bet at least 2 will have “1 lesson = $ or buy 3 for $ and save X”…

The importance of “why”

I met RetailTribe CEO Ian James in 2013 at the PGA Merchandise Show.

Blake Babies – Sunburn

I listened to this album for almost 3 months straight during a very cold, dark winter in Burlington, VT. Thank you, Blake Babies.  Most of that time, I lived alone in a huge, cavernous room on the top floor of the University of Vermont’s Acacia fraternity house.
