Want to make it to the top in the business world, run or manage a profitable corporation or maybe even own your own company?

Future business leaders should look to the competitive world of sports for inspiration and advice, writer Robert Fiacco posits in the soon-to-be released Showing Up To Play: Business and Life Lessons Learned on the Golf Course, an entertaining motivational self-help guide for those seeking to scale the corporate ladder.

In Showing Up To Play, Fiacco, an avid golfer and successful 30-year business veteran, draws detailed and compelling connections between lessons learned on the golf course and in the boardroom. The most talented golfers and the most successful business leaders share some of the same traits: humility, absolute determination, and, above all, a willingness to show up and play, Fiacco writes.

Releasing just as golfers start dusting off their clubs and heading to the links this summer, the book weaves together practical and compelling advice for motivated businessmen and women with witty and humorous golf anecdotes. Fiacco’s sage advice and entertaining analogies are sure to both guide and inspire devoted sports enthusiasts and non-golfers alike.

Showing Up to Play will be released in paperback, hardcover, and eBook was released June 21, 2013 and is available through BQB’s online store, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your favorite bookseller. It is also available for prerelease reviews to qualified parties that will post their opinion online.
