Foss, founder of #LEGS (Ladies Executive Golf Society), joins host Colin Weston to discuss how she combines her entrepreneurial passion with a sense of purpose
Jillian Foss had a simple thought — "What can we do to continue to lift up women toward leadership through golf?" Her belief was the world would be a better place if she could make that happen.
"So I set out to accomplish this mission and have some fun while we're at it," says Foss, who founded #LEGS (Ladies Executive Golf Society).
Foss joins "The ModGolf Podcast" host Colin Weston to talk about how and why she founded #LEGS, and how it benefits women and their respective communities.
