Every day is a day for insight, creativity, courage and tenacity.

The start of something great...

Karsten_Solheim.jpgThis father and son fought the battles together.

Phoenix, Arizona:  Innovators, by their very nature, are constantly going up against existing systems. The establishment. Sometimes their insights do not come by small increments, but by large leaps and then the renegades become outlaws!

If you are a golfer, you know Ping. It ranks at the top with Titleist, Spaulding, Calloway, Taylor-made-Adidas...  Yet , this business is still privately-held; and though the patriarch (and father) has died, his son, John, continues to build on all the lessons he learned as his engineering apprentice when they started this business.

Meet the Solheim family.  Like so many who redefine an entire industry, they were outlawed within it. They broke the rules. They created something totally new. Some people thought they were just crazy, until they began winning within their game. These renegades persevered. They negotiated, and today they are leaders within their industry and on their way to becoming a billion dollar business.

They began in a California garage in 1959. The sound of success here is "Ping"   and today John Solheim continues a tradition for excellence that began with with his father, Karsten.  Together they invented and began manufacturing  the Ping Golf Clubs.

Here you will see how a business constantly strives for a higher perfection.

* A segment called "The  sliver of genius"

...was part of the earliest broadcasts back in 1994.  We slowly began to realize virtually every successful business is built on that special focus. And, yes, all these people are recommended by their community for their integrity and by their industry for their creativity and courage. Our national sponsors  from IBM, USPS, Verizon, Microsoft, D&B, and others have paid for everything.

Nobody can pay or has every paid to be on this television show.

And, every day should deeply stimulate your imagination and  motivations.

Entrepreneurs do not wait for somebody else to do it. They just do it themselves. They take on the big challenges and are not afraid that others will think they are stupid, crazy, or simply a fool. It is so much easier to say, "That's impossible" or "That can't be done."

So what are you waiting for? Do you have that special genius?*
