The Highest Leverage Investment in a Business is...
Tania and I had our first lesson with a golf coach since taking up the sport as a new couples activity.
After my first two uncoached trips to the driving range, I woke up the next day with a very sore back.
Cam, our new golf coach, watched me swing the club a few times and instantly noticed that I was not letting my legs follow through with my upper body, meaning that as my upper body was trying to twist around to complete the swing, my lower body was not. This was putting tremendous strain on my lower back.
He gave me a cue to work on and my follow-through instantly improved with the result that my back was not sore the next day.
That lesson was $100 for the two of us. Considering what we spent on clubs, what we will spend this summer on green fees and what we regularly spend on chiropractors, our investment in a good golf coach seems like the highest leverage investment of all.
