Entrepreneurs are generally fascinating people. For us, we love to hear the success stories, especially when they involve golf. That’s the trend for today’s episode. We sat down with Mike Flaskey, former CEO of Diamond Resorts, to discuss all things life and golf and his new entertainment company.

We open up the episode and get into the early days. We talk about Diamond Resorts and the impact Diamond Resorts had on golf. If you watch any golf, you may remember some of the golfers wearing Diamond Resorts on their hats.

Mike tells us about the start of their entertainment platform that started with Colt Ford. This platform allowed for an entertainment aspect to be infused into the golf tournaments. We turn the episode over to some technical talk consisting of golf where it is today vs. golf where it was yesterday.

We jump ahead to when Diamond Resorts sold to Hilton. We ask Mike what it was like being in on this deal..and how he treated himself after the deal closed. His answer may surprise you.

We turn the episode over down the stretch and talk more about entertainment and golf. We chat about Isleworth and other great courses in FL. We end the episode with our standard Tap-In Segment, where we ask Mike 4 questions that demand his quick response. Tune in now to hear from a guy that we all could take a little inspiration from.
