"Honoring Excellence in Golf"

Ashaunta A. Epps
CEO/Founder, A Perfect Swing, Inc.
Charlotte, N.C.

The mission of A Perfect Swing, Inc. is to help individuals use golf as a networking tool to advance in their career, by providing non-competitive and competitive opportunities for people of all ages to come together, network, build communication skills, and share in the fun of playing the game.

Epps is a native of Kingstree, SC, and now resides in Charlotte, NC. She currently works as an IT Service Management Operations Consultant for Microsoft Corporation. She has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Master of Science in Information Systems (Summa Cum Laude) with a concentration in Enterprise Resource Management.

Her natural drive to be successful and her outgoing personality has allowed her to meet many people throughout her corporate career. During this time, she noticed that she was missing out on crucial business conversations that her peers had when they went out to play golf. Once she began to play the sport, she also noticed that it afforded her an opportunity to meet major stakeholders in various businesses and professional organizations. She quickly realized that this was a best kept secret to networking that every person that wanted to be successful should include themselves, thus the objective of A Perfect Swing, Inc. was developed. When it comes to networking while playing golf, YOUR swing IS the perfect swing. The mere fact that you are on the course and in the conversation is the true success factor.

The vigilant businesswoman has been doing network golfing to build her brand since 2011 and completed the official organizational filings on April 3, 2013.
A Perfect Swing, Inc.’s motto is “Improving your success in life by improving your backswing”. In golf, one of the most critical steps to hitting the ball well is to get your backswing right. Epps believes that your backswing gets you in a proper position to hit the ball in the sweet spot, so you can maximize your distance. Just as the backswing in golf is key to hitting the ball successfully, so is your backswing of life, for achieving your goals. Many people overlook the importance of golf as a networking tool due to the fear of the unknown of the game itself. Unfortunately, just deciding to play a game of golf and then booking a tee time is not enough. There are several rules regarding dress, etiquette, and equipment that you need to know before playing on a course. One of A Perfect Swing’s goals is to make individuals comfortable on the course.

On the website: www.aperfectswing.net, you will find opportunities to learn and play golf at your level of play, while networking and having fun with others looking to do the same. You will also find information on networking, communication, resume preparation, strategic planning, public speaking, and other life backswing assistance workshops. There’s also information on how you can have A Perfect Swing, Inc. present at your next team builder, event, or conference.

Ms. Epps is also the Chief Operating Officer for The Coalition for Teens Helping Teens and the Vice President for Polished Pearls Leadership Seminars for Teen Girls. She’s a member of the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., the Charlotte Chapter of National Black Masters of Business Administration Association, Women in Technology International (WITI), Blacks at Microsoft (BAM), and Nations Ford Community Church. She is dedicated to giving back to her community through the sponsorship of youth golf days, Back-To-School Supplies Drives, mentoring high school athletes, tutoring, and serving in various community service projects.
