Business Lessons from Tiger Woods

If you’ve been around Business Growth Curator for a while, you probably know I enjoy golf.  When I was younger, everyone wanted to be like Tiger.  We wanted to wear the clothes he wore, swing like him, everything.  In the 90s during the height of his career, I had the opportunity to see Tiger Woods in person!  What I observed from him became an important business lesson for me later on.  In this video and blog, I’m sharing exactly what lesson that is.

Tiger Had a Team of Coaches and Experts

When I saw Tiger, he had a swing coach, other coaches, business advisors, and more.  Interestingly, not a single person on his team was as good of a golfer.  However, they all were able to contribute and provide feedback that led to his success in golf.  In fact, most situations require a team.  For example, you’re not able to represent yourself in court.  Similarly, most CEOs have a board that will provide perspective and feedback on the decisions they want to make.  No matter what field you’re in, having outside input is important.

Entrepreneurship Can Be Isolating

When you became an entrepreneur, you probably wanted freedom.  You’re not looking for a boss or someone to veto your ideas!  However, with that freedom, you may be leading your business in a vacuum.  When was the last time you received feedback on a new idea?  Or, ask yourself if you regularly seek advice from people around you.  If the answer is no, there’s a good chance you’re feeling the loneliness of entrepreneurship.
