    Most small business owners think getting a loan or establishing a line of credit is the only way to build business credit. Of course both of those options will help, but not all small business owners will qualify due to the requirement of already having strong business and/or personal credit scores, and possibly proof of a certain level of business income.

    The simplest way to get started building business credit for young businesses or businesses that are not making a lot of money just yet is to purchase from vendors that allow you to buy now and pay later, AND report those payments to commercial credit agencies.

    Quill is a great option. 

    Don’t be discouraged if your business is young; newer entrepreneurs often report success getting a Quill account. Shopping online using a Quill account is like shopping at any other online retailer.

    Create an account, provide all of your company's details, and go shopping! Proceed toward checkout and you’ll see a notice that you can order now and pay later. If approved, you’ll get net-30 terms.

    What kind of golf clubs are you playing with these days? Are they the golf clubs that you should have chosen? Really? Do you even know? There are many kinds of golf clubs out there and if you did not check them all out before you made your final decision, you have no way of knowing if you chose correctly.

    Purchasing golf clubs is one of the most important things, if not the most important thing that you will ever have to do when it comes to playing golf. Your golf game is going to depend on the golf clubs that you choose to play with. Your swing is everything to your game and without the right golf clubs you will not be able to swing to your full potential.

    When choosing the right golf clubs, you need to take a good look at the shaft. The flexibility of the shaft of any golf club is going to tell you a lot about the club. Not everyone is comfortable with the same amount of flexibility and you need to find the golf clubs that you are the most comfortable with. Try out many different flexibility levels to see what suits you the best. The golf stores will let you do this and while you are there, get your swing measured. This will help you to find the best possible golf clubs for your golf game. Even if you plan to buy them for less online you can still visit a golf store to see how the golf clubs feel in your hands. I recommend everyone do this before they commit to any particular golf clubs.

    Your ability in golf will have a direct bearing on your choice of golf clubs as well. There are golf clubs that are made for those just beginning to play golf and golf clubs made for pros. If you are just starting to play the game and you are not even sure that you are going to like it yet, then you do not want to go out and spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on your golf clubs. What if you end up hating it? It is a far better idea to start out in a more affordable price range with your first golf clubs.

    Different golf clubs have different lengths and not all lengths suit all golfers. You need to check out the different lengths to see which will suit your body and your game the best. In most cases, a standard length is the way to go. But short people and tall people will need a different length when it comes to their golf clubs. You do not want to have to bend in order to hit the ball, the length of your golf clubs is another essential aspect to a good golf game.

    So… those old clubs that your dad, uncle, or brother gave you may not be the clubs for YOU. But they are definitely worth swinging a few times to find out.

    Have you ever walked into your local golf store to get some golf balls? At first, it may seem like the easiest task at hand as you walk from your car, through the parking lot, and into the store. You’re just there to pick up some good old golf balls for your game later. You pass a nice looking golf shirt, some golf shoes, and then you see them. The shelves… upon shelves… upon shelves of golf balls that seem to stare blankly at you. They all seem to be screaming at the same time: Long distance, more spin, more control, hi-spin, raw distance fusion. “Raw distance fusion?” you ask yourself.

    Ok, time out! It’s time to take a deep breath and relax. No, the golf ball world does not want to make you have a panic attack before you even get out on the green! But, it is no question that buying golf balls, even for some experienced golfers, can be a tad bit confusing. Let’s take a closer look at the basic types of golf balls on the market today and perhaps this will help you in your next endeavor into the store!

    Golf Galaxy provides an easy way to learn more and shop for golf balls right from your computer. Check out some of their recommendations on buying golf balls:

    To choose the best golf ball, think about the areas of your game where a slight improvement could lead to lower scores. Skilled golfers may want to focus on finesse shots around the green. Better pitches and chips could be the key to consistently breaking 80. What type of shot do you tend to hit when you’re 40 yards out? If you like to stop the ball on a dime, a high-spin, multi-piece ball will give you the added control you crave. But, if you prefer to roll the ball at the pin with a chip-and-run, spin will be slightly less important.

    If you are a beginner or high-handicapper, your primary concern is probably hitting the ball straight. Low-spin, distance golf balls are designed to reduce the sidespin that exaggerates slices and hooks, and they can help produce longer, straighter drives. Because you’re still learning control around the green, a low-spin ball will serve you just fine.


    Professionals and frequent golfers benefit from the additional layers found on Tour balls – they generate low spin off the driver for longer distance and higher spin on approach shots for shot-stopping and shaping control. The softer cover material, urethane, provides the enhanced feel and highest greenside spin for more challenging shots.


    Performance golf balls offer many of the features found in Tour balls, but they are better suited for players with moderate swing speeds. The mantle layer helps regulate spin rate off the tee without sacrificing stopping power around the green. These golf balls are great all-around performers that you can trust to meet your needs.


    Soft feel is often synonymous with low compression. Low compression allows for more deformation at impact, reducing spin and translating to straighter, longer flight on low-lofted clubs. The prolonged contact on short irons and wedges results in softer feel.


    Two-piece golf balls are also known as distance balls. Featuring a firmer cover, distance golf balls resist cuts on both poor strikes and contact with harder surfaces. The larger center core supports maximum distance while minimizing spin and movement.


    Women’s golf balls typically feature a two-piece construction made for slower swing speeds, providing added distance, durability and control. If you are a beginner, recreational player or have a slower swing speed, consider these golf balls.


    High-visibility golf balls provide bold style and superior visibility on the course. Popular solid colors include yellow, orange, pink and green. Options like Truvis from Callaway® offer a multi-colored pattern designed specifically to maximize your view of the ball for better focus and visibility.

    Once you find the golf ball that is right for you, the only thing you will have to get nervous about is whether or not you should buy one case or two of them!

    Reading the Greens

    As our active membership has been growing, I have been getting quite a few questions about some of the things that actually happen while playing a round. How to read the greens is a common question. So below, you will find my take on "Reading the Greens". 

    It is rare to come across a completely flat green. Greens will nearly always slope because it is necessary for water to drain off them. Allowing rain or water to roll off is necessary, but it also causes balls to curve off line when you are putting. Uphill and downhill putts are a result of sloping turf. But side to side sloping means the ball wants to move sideways on its way to the hole. Your ability to read the “break” or slope is a key to how well you putt. It is obvious that a sharper slope causes more break than a smaller one.

    Do the following to read the Green:
    1. As you walk towards the green, pay attention to the overall slope of the land and any features such as hills, bodies of water, and valleys. These are items that will come into play as you plan your next shot.  When you reach the ball, make a quick decision of what you think the ball will do.
    2. Now take a little time (a few seconds) checking from the ball to the hole, and maybe from the hole to the ball. This is how you will finalize the quick decision you made earlier. This can be done while other players are setting up for their shots and it allows you to be ready when your shot comes up.
    3. After deciding how a putt will break make a guess about how much you think it is going to break. Will it make a right to left move? How many inches do you think it will move?
    Dealing with the sloping as you are putting will take time and practice. You will learn how to do this effectively as you play. As in all other situations in life, experience is the best teacher.

    If you would like to learn more about playing golf, consider attending the next 3-Day Golf Intensive.

    If you have a thorough knowledge of the rules, you will always have an advantage over players who do not.
    Keep in mind that the rule book is not just to impose penalties; it is also to outline the rights of players.
    Here are a few rules to remember in Business Golf:
    *Unplayable Lies: You decide if your ball is unplayable and worth the one-stroke penalty that allows you to drop within 2 club lengths on either side or back as far as you like on the flight line.
    As long as the ball isn’t closer to the hole.  You may also return to the original play position with a stroke and distance penalty.
    *Casual water or Ground Under Repair:  If your ball lands in either casual water or a ground under repair area OR if you are required to stand in either of these areas, you are allowed to drop at the nearest point that is not nearer the hole with no penalty. However, for the Ground Under Repair rule, there is a certain drop area is provided.
    *You are entitled to relief from artificial obstructions. 
    *You do not have to play with a damaged ball. 
    *There is no penalty for playing out of turn.
     *The maximum number of clubs is 14. 
    *There is no penalty for hitting a flagstick as long as the ball was played off the green. If you are on the green, the stick must be attended or removed. 
    *You should always repair ball marks on the green. Repair your mark plus one more.
    These are only some of the rules you need to be familiar with, you can always keep a copy of the rules in your golf bag. To download and a print a version of the rules, click HERE .
    If some of this terminology is unfamiliar to you, make sure you keep an eye out for our online training. That way, you can at least start some golf conversations. :-)  

    Have a fantastic week!

    Positioning yourself for success is necessary in a competitive world where change is the only constant. Being in position is about being open to the importance of reinventing and retooling your skills to improve your marketability in your career and business. It is about knowing what your strengths are and how to leverage them in helping you achieve success. What position are preparing for as you move forward? What do you need to do to make sure you are ready for the position you desire? Consider the following strategies for positioning yourself for success.

    1. Plan for success.

    This requires sitting down and deciding what you want to achieve in your career and business. It is about setting specific goals with milestones along the way to make sure you are on track to have the success you desire. It is about speaking words that are creating the success you desire. It requires doing a data dump of old scripts and information from your past and downloading new software in your mind that is filled with unlimited possibilities that are available to you with your new plan of action.

    2. Create a circle of eagle thinkers.

    Positioning yourself for success requires evaluating your inner circle of people you spend time with. It is important to create a group of eagle thinkers that might also be called your mastermind group. These are individuals who will challenge you, encourage you, and inspire and ignite you to tap into your hidden potential. These are individuals who are positive thinkers and possibility thinkers who recognize and celebrate the greatness inside of you.

    3. Learn the art of connecting in building relationships.

    More than ever before, business and career opportunities happen because of relationships. It is vital that you become a savvy networker that knows the art of connecting and cultivating meaningful relationships. When meeting people at events spend time learning about them and what they do and establish a connection so there will be dialogue beyond that conversation. As you make the connection and follow up, that contact over time can lead to a contract.  Take your time and find ways to add value as you nurture the relationship and watch it grow.

    4. Ask for help. You don’t have to do everything yourself.

    So many times we feel as women, we can do it all.  We have the superwoman complex. If that is you, stop and exhale and do something special just for you this month. You don’t have to be all things to all people all the time. Balance things out and get your family and friends involved to help you out. Learn the art of how to say NO graciously and be willing to ask for help. It is amazing when we learn to do this, the load we carry becomes lighter and our stress level decreases. It gives us the freedom and momentum to soar.

    5. Have a strong spiritual foundation to keep you anchored.

    It is essential to have a strong spiritual foundation to navigate through the constant and rapid change in our lives, careers, and businesses. You must know with all certainty that God is your source, strength and shield and that as you walk with Him all things are possible. Stay anchored in your faith walk, stay true to your purpose, and position yourself to be ready for the great things God has in store for you. A strong spiritual foundation equips and empowers you to win!
