This week Mikey D, Drew, and Joe hang out with Garrett Clark, Micah Morris, and Matt Scharff; three of the five guys that make up the rapidly growing Youtube channel and clothing brand “Good Good”.
Listen along, as they share the story of how they each found their way together, as well as where they see themselves in 5 years. Hear their thoughts on just how powerful “ignoring the noise” has been for them, and how a few seemingly small decisions paired with a clear mission to expand the game of golf has led this group of close friends to gain so much traction in the massively competitive business space that is social media. Thank you for tuning in, and we hope we make you smile!

Let’s be real, the golf industry has always set a low standard when it came to paying their team and we feel strongly that this is a big mistake. On this episode, Joe, Mikey D & Drew and Jacquelyn “Stone Cold” Porman discuss The Power of Paying On Performance. Jacquelyn is the Lead Sales & Service Specialist at Dobson Ranch Golf Course and has done an amazing job growing the business and instilling a fun, friendly, and even competitive culture at the Ranch.
You would hope that every golf course would be looking for any edge they can get, however, when it comes to hiring, training, and compensating their team, they do the exact opposite. Most golf course managers and operators forget that your frontline and day-to-day leadership are responsible for your most important asset. So paying as little as possible with no incentive or hiring someone that only wants free golf, is a for sure way NOT to be successful.
We understand that golf courses may not have the resources to pay high salaries or wages, so Pay On Performance… Look at all of your profit streams and/or centers and pay on sales, revenue improvement, profit growth, guest reviews… whatever ways you want to grow.
We will share with great levity, passion, and experience on the Power of Paying On Performance. Enjoy the episode and please leave any thoughts or feedback.
Hope We Make You Smile..:)

Let’s be real, if you play golf or have been around golf courses for any period of time, you have thought at one point “why is everyone so serious, lighten up, you’re not saving lives!! Golf courses earned that feedback by not focusing on the customer or making them the priority. The common approach and business model of managing golf courses centers around upholding of the “rich tradition” of the game along with the boring, stiff and outdated rules and policies.
Our goal every episode is to make you smile as we share what it’s like to manage and market golf courses all over the country.. The Paradigm Way of managing and marketing golf courses will make you Think, Laugh and maybe even Cry. Time to meet Mikey D, Drew & The Crew of the Paradigm Golf Group.
