There are moments in life we'll always remember. Momentous occasions that establish who we are and where we've been. Some are simple memories, some are game-changers.
Like you, I've had my share of both. I'm into leaving a legacy, creating and doing things so my kids can look back at their Daddy one day and say...'Yup, he was pretty cool.'
A game-changer for me was about 15 or 20 years ago when I made a decision to just go for it. I hired a graphic designer to put together a handful of feature articles, sidebars, photos and quotes all created by me for a junior golf magazine I called Golf Scratch. First of all, the name was all wrong. I should have called it Scratch Golf...but that's part of the learning process.
When the first issue came off the printing press, my Dad and I drove around all day in his van and delivered my creation to various golf courses and facilities. It was a game-changer for me.
I eventually parlayed that experience into some pretty cool writing gigs for high-profile teams and websites.
At Asheville Crate Company, EVERY customer is awesome to us. When you make a decision to purchase a crate, that means we've established your trust that we're gonna make something you want.
When Congressional Country Club contacted me about eight months ago, I literally asked the caller...'Are you really calling from Congressional?'
Congressional is a game-changer for this business because they opened the door to a new market we weren't in eight months ago. A market I first entered about 15 years ago with the help of my Dad and his van.
So thanks, Congo. Thanks for keeping me in the game.
