When I first moved to Atlanta after landing my dream job at CNN, I did something you might think is unusual: I started taking golf lessons. Why?? Because I found that a lot of the editors and producers I was working with, as well as the sources I was interviewing, were making deals not in the newsroom or the boardroom but out on the course. I didn’t want to be left out of this (mostly male) tradition, so I signed up for lessons at a local golf club.
…and showed up to my first lesson wearing soccer cleats. Oh well; live and learn.
I’m not going to say that I’ve become a huge sports fan since then, but I have come to understand the importance of sports in the realm of business. Whether you’re taking a potential client to a game to discuss business in a laid-back environment, or treating yourself to some old fashioned F-U-N as part of the 15% of your monthly income allocated for just that, sports and business go hand in hand.
