Bob Beaudine Featured in Private Clubs Magazine

The Magazine From ClubCorp, the World Leader in Private Clubs

"People have been taught, incorrectly, that mixing friends and business is taboo."

Bob Beaudine
Gleneagles Country Club, Plano, Texas
Member since: 1984

Who he is: The CEO of Eastman & Beaudine, a sports/entertainment executive search firm, who recently released the business/self-help book, The Power of Who

The power of what? Actually, it's Who. The idea is that the people you already know - i.e., your Who — are your best sources for helping you find a job or improve your life situation.
Why? "Who's more likely to help you during a tough time, someone who doesn't know you or someone who's a personal friend? Friends are people who are pre-wired to want to help us."

Determining your Who: Beaudine says to start with 12 friends — including three close and one best. "Your closest friends are your inner circle of greatest influence. Everyone in your circle of friends has great influence in their own circle of friends."

Using your connections: "Why send your résumé to people you don't know? You get more mileage from someone you know putting in a good word for you."
