As I mentioned before, I have been following Mark Cuban’s weblog somewhat. Last night I decided to email him a question that has been on my mind for the last year or so. He mentioned that he is not a fan of golf, but the way I understood things (and was brought up to think) is that golf is a staple of the business world. Via golfing, people close deals, network, etc… I was just curious if not playing golf hindered any business relations. So my question to him was this:
“Along your journey, have you noticed the need of playing golf to get business deals accomplished? Or is it not as hyped as some people make it?”
“People eat and drink , so there are plenty of ways to get the job done..
never stopped me”
The response makes sense… I do have to admit that I was surprised by the speed of the reply. He emailed me back about 10-15 minutes after I sent him my email.
