Giving Back

I love to invest. What I mean by this is that I love to turn around and help someone or an organization that has meant a great deal to me personally. In the Front 9 of my life I can say with a passion that the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization was instrumental in opening […]

Are You Investing?

Recently I had the opportunity to chat by phone with one of my young friends, John, who was in the great state of Alabama competing in an amateur golf tournament. I love it when I can catch up with one of these young people in person so it was great to have recently had him […]

“I’m great! How are you?” This is a typical conversation that I have often with people…. In Kyle Idleman’s book, “Not a Fan!” I absolutely love how he describes people who wear a “mask!” It is soooooo refreshing at 51 to read a book where someone has written so eloquently and honestly about the millions […]
