In the new book, Teeing Up for Success, the EWGA has compiled stories of insight and inspiration from extraordinary women on how they have used the game of golf to achieve their goals. For tri-state area entrepreneur and founder of Boardroom Golf for
Women, Joan C Cavanaugh discovered the game for developing business
relationships when she founded her publishing company in Connecticut in the late 80’s
In her chapter, “A Career Game from Position, Power and Profit, “Joan never expected that at age 50 she would be challenged with a new business technique that would see her through untold financial success in her start-up publishing business. She tells of her first time at the first tee – swinging in front of her new husband and his golf buddies. From the golfing equipment to the sports apparel, this game looked like a sport, but she soon realized that it was indeed, a social game and an art form that if mastered, would foster new contacts that would propel her business plan far beyond her expectations.
The book offers over 30 compelling stories of how golf can make a difference in one’s life. From EWGA’s CEO Pam Swensen’s “The Power of the Dimpled Ball” to Debbie Waitkus’ “Turning Golf into Gold,” these stories share their most intimate recollections of how the game has contributed positively to their lives and careers.
For many of these women, golf has been a door opener and has presented them with countless opportunities. It has given them equality, credibility, and has opened the lines of communication, allowing for easy conversation and providing a great setting for relaxation and fun.
