Jonathan Snyder came to Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach looking for a career in the golf industry and left an entrepreneur. He is Director of Instruction and Owner at The Golf Academy of the Northands in Kansas City, Missouri.

"Business and social skills are key to success in any career, but especially in growing as an entrepreneur," says Snyder. "GAA started me on the path to a dream career by providing me with a network and additional knowledge to start and sustain a business. Hard work, the background from GAA, and a little luck is the recipe for success."

He wants students to know that what they put into their education is an indication of what they will get out of it. "I think it is important to understand that GAA will be what you make of it," says Snyder. "I made it a powerful tool and experience with the hard work and networking that I put in to it."
