Thomas Connors's comment, September 11, 2013 10:20 AM
learned that the WollonGong golf course was hurting because no knew members were showing up and everyone was dropping their memberships. This wasn’t because the course was bad, but because no one has “time” or they just don’t like it anymore. So to raise interest in the sport all over again, they came up with the idea of night golfing. Meaning on Friday nights at 6:30 you would come and play golf under huge lights, with glow balls, glow sticks and also you could bring drinks. I found it very interesting that this owner was being a great manager by doing anything he can to make money and keep his company going because its what he loves. Also it was interesting that he thought of something so creative and advertised it so well that the news had a big article about it. On top of that, the rules are relaxed meaning: no dress code, relaxed ball placement, drinks and food, glow sticks, very social. I selected this article because it showed that a manager can change their business around just by a simple idea of making it dark and throwing glow sticks out to make it look cool. It shows that sometimes people need a fun change to cause their interest to spark all over again. This information is very important to up coming managers. I believe this because it shows that with a dwindling business a manager can instantly make moves to turn it around. Such a simple idea can cause people to flak to a business and not care how much it costs.

Foster Hires WME for representation
Thomas Connors's comment, September 11, 2013 12:20 PM
1. I learned that WME has been hired to represent Aaron Foster in areas of entertainment including: Film, Television, literature, music, digital media and endorsements. Even if Foster isn’t the best actor, WME still gets their name out because they have been chosen to represent a big name player in the National Football League. Very good advertisement . I found it very interesting that Foster can be a big part of the NFL and at the same time manage to be an actor. Also its very interesting that WME a big name representative took hold of an NFL player with little experience and limited time.I selected this article because it was another good point on how management moves can get the business’s name out so well that its all over the news and in magazines. They chose an NFL player, in my eyes, just because he has money and it will get their name out because they took this chance.This is very important to a future manager because it shows what will happen if the manager decides to represent a huge name even if he’s not the best. Foster is only known for being good at football, now they pick him up for acting, changing the game, making money, and getting their name out.
