8 posts in this topic

Like the Title says Anyone here Own or Run their Own Company or Family Buissness?

My faimly has Owned and Run our Roofing company since 1894. I was just wondering if anyone else has their own buisness. I like meeting people that own their own company and take pride in there work!

I only work for the Faimly Buisness on weekends now but Im still a part of it and my Brother still runs it and my Mother is the Owner/Secretary - (Owner since my father passed away but, my brother will take over ownership soon)

I own a computer repair / service business, I have one technician and an office manager that work for me. I've been doing it for 7.5 yrs, get a little burnt out, but at least it gives me the freedom to take an afternoon off here and there to golf.

My Mom owns a truck accessory store, she took it over in the late 1980's after my Grandpa. She has the same farmers coming back every couple years because she is honest and doesn't sell junk like some of the other places in town.

I worked there when I was going to college and love being able to have access to a lift lol.

My Brother and I own and operate a 3,000 acre irrigated farm in Central Wisconsin. 4 more full time employees. It certainly keeps us off the streets. The most interesting part of owning a family business is listening to politicians tell you how the bills they are sponsoring are going to help you. Talk about being clueless!!!!!!

I've had my own business of one kind or another since 1989. My current company (optical fiber sales) is 6 years old and I'll probably stick with it for a while. I've had a computer networking company, a software development/internet application company, and a guitar amplifier company. Having your own company is great but can be a real burden. Balance is always the key!

We have two businesses, my office and a gymnastics gym. I is a little tedious at times because I work my office and then head to the gym to take care and put together gym equipment. Do not get home b4 9 pm most nights.

politicians never help you...even if they have good intentions they will mess it up by the time it is done. That is almost as sure as the sun coming up!!

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
