Congratulations to Klaus for his 5 Ways to Improve your Golf Game Kindle Book


I met Klaus and his wife Mette at the Make Market Launch It event in San Diego and over 3 days we produced a book and launch it to best seller status on Amazon. These guys worked their butts to pull this book together. Great experience.
