Olivia J. Cook, Ph.D
Through the HERstory series, Go for the Greens reflects on the women who have been touched by our organization and, in turn, continue to give back. One such woman, Dr. Olivia Janay Cook, started as a mentee and is now a mentor, returning every year to inspire our future women leaders. Dr. Cook was first introduced to Go for the Greens by longtime supporter Joan LaGrasse, who to Olivia is a “true connector.” Joan is the owner of Imagen, a certified woman-owned business based in Nashville, TN. After meeting at the WBENC National Conference in 2019, Joan convinced Olivia and her business partner, Dr. Courtney Haun, to attend Go for the Greens Mentorship Program even though they would be one of the oldest participants there.  READ MORE.
Thank you, Dr. Olivia for all you do for Go for the Greens!

Join us at the Go for the Greens Annual Conference to learn more about creating a sustainably-conscious business.

The countdown to Earth Day 2022 is on and this year’s theme is “Invest in Our Planet.” Each year, Earth Day focuses on helping educate and activate the environmental movement across the globe. It is a perfect time to look at what you are currently doing in your business and at home to positively impact your effect on our planet.
But we all know that time and other resources are limited now more than ever. So, what are some things you can do to show you care for Mother Earth while helping your business grow? Read about five suggestions we have compiled to help you get started.

Go for the Greens Golfing Tips (Part 1)

Golf is an especially vital component of the Go for the Greens mission and Annual Conference. Between now and September, we will be providing golf tips for the novice golfers. We hope you enjoy the tips and sign up to join us at Disney’s Palm and Oak Trail golf courses on September 24, 2022.

Why Play Golf?

  •  Golf teaches life lessons including honesty, self-confidence, endurance, resiliency, and accepting success as well as failure.
  • Golf is a wonderful opportunity to network professionally, but also can be a fun activity with friends.
  • Golf is a good workout for your body and mind. It includes a little meditation, yoga (that swing), walking (even with a cart) and burns calories!
  • Golf can help along your career. You have an opportunity to bond with new clients, spend one-on-one time with upper management and relax over drinks at Hole 19.
  • If you are into fashion trends, this game has a whole fashion wardrobe of its own. (More about the do’s and don’ts of what to wear in an upcoming newsletter.)
Did you know…the fastest growing group of golfers is women, now six million out of 27 million golfers in the United States.

If you missed all or part of the the excitement of last year’s Virtual 2020 Experience, you can now view the amazing presentations and panels via the Go for the Greens YouTube Channel. Here is a sample of what you may have missed…

Women, Business, Relationship Building, and Golf… it’s a powerful combination.

And few have experienced that more than Cindy Chace and Diane Sears through their non-profit organization, Go For The Greens. In 2008, their vision of connecting entrepreneurial women over the interactive sport of golf came to fruition and its impact has continued to increase exponentially ever since. The conference is produced by an all volunteer team and is held every year in Orlando at Disney World. Go For the Greens is based on four important pillars: generating revenue by growing companies to create more jobs, exchanging environment-friendly business practices, developing business strategy through golf, and mentoring of future entrepreneurs. These women are making a difference and using the outdoors to do it.

Continual Education Opportunities Now Playing on YouTube…

Now more than ever, face-to-face contacts that lead to business relationships and potential contracts are critical. Go for the Greens is committed to making these connections continue to happen through our virtual education programs — one to help maintain business connections and another to help inspire young women to focus on their future.
