Episode 333: Go ahead — make mistakes on purpose, with Paul Maskill.
Paul Maskill invested in his first TGA franchise in 2011, combining his business experience with passion for sports. TGA makes golf and tennis more accessible to students ages 3 to 15 through on-campus after school programs, summer camps, parent / child events and more. Over the last 4.5 years, Paul has grown his business to four franchises, impacting thousands of kids each year. At the end of 2015, Paul sold his four franchises for over 6x his initial investment and 3x his net profit. Paul then accepted a position with the franchisor to lead business development and helps current franchise owners to help build their businesses through people, processes, and systems so the business thrives without relying on the owner.
