Adam Levine to open a "Golf and Weed" Store

http://www.back9network.com/article/adam-levine-to-open-weed-and-golf-store/

Lem Clevenger's insight:

In an article for GQ's July issue, one of Levine's interesting conversations with his assistant, Shawn, was featured. In it, the two brainstormed ideas for a new store to open in a strip mall, and they came up with something that has definitely never been done before.

It's called "Weed and Golf," and it's exactly what it sounds like.

Rules of Social Engagement

Rules of Social Engagement | Golf Business | Scoop.it
Social media platforms have become almost mandatory to increase sales and better customer relationships. To use social media effectively, and to your advantage, you must ensure actual engagement between yourself and your target audience takes place. Mostly, social media is about using content creation and thought-provoking statements to engage your target audience, with minimal efforts of obvious sales-pitches for your business.

Turn Your Lack of Knowledge into Billions

Turn Your Lack of Knowledge into Billions | Golf Business | Scoop.it
Pete Kight has a success story that is simply amazing. The company he founded, CheckFree, was acquired in 2007 by Fiserve for approximately $4.4 billion in cash. In many ways, his story sounds like other millionaire success stories that include dropping out of school, being ridiculed for pursuing a big idea, receiving rejection after rejection from prospective customers, having little money to fund his dream, and so on. But one aspect of his story is truly inspiring, and it serves as a profound lesson in entrepreneurship.
