Paul Maskill

Jaime Jay welcomes Paul Maskill to the show today. Paul took a kid’s golf and tennis after school and summer business plan. He grew it into 4 franchises and sold it for more than 4 times what he had invested! Paul shares his strategies for growing a successful business that leaves time for you in Paul Maskill – Working On Not In Your Business.


Paul began TGA in 2011. Teach. Grow. Achieve. The sports of golf and tennis are not as accessible for kids at the entry level. TGA found a way to bring this to the kids without the need for Paul Maskill - Working On Not In Your Businesscourts or courses! The goal of TGA is to ready the kids for a transition to a higher level if that is their desire.  Paul  wants to make lifelong golfers and tennis players out of the kids that enter his program.

Paul sold TGA and was subsequently was hired by the franchise he sold. He now helps prospective franchise owners with business plans and current franchise owners to ensure they are successful.

Corporate Exit

Paul left a corporate finance job in 2011 to begin his dream of owning his own business. He had a plan and stayed on probably 6 months to a year longer than he wanted to so he would be prepared and not in great debt.

Paul took a look around his corporate finance job and realized the guys that had been there 40 years were adding no value. He envisioned himself in 40 years the same way.  Paul was working for stockholders wanting their quarterly reports. It just wasn’t for Paul.
