Episode 60 - Everything Will Be OK

October 15, 2020

Hello and welcome to our 60th episode!

WOW! We are so proud to reach this milestone in the Profitable Farmer journey. 

 

Over the past 3 years, the previous 59 Profitable Farmer episodes have been downloaded over 151,000 times and we have steadily built up a loyal fanbase and thousands of subscribers.  The topics we discuss each fortnight are even appealing to listeners outside of agriculture, which is surprising and reaffirming all at once.

Thank you for the support, feedback and reviews you have provided along the way.

 

As the traditional gift given to celebrate a 60th anniversary is diamond, we have lined up a true Aussie diamond to commemorate this milestone.

 

In this special edition podcast, we are joined by self-proclaimed “ordinary Aussie”, this man is grounded, humble, and a true gent… Michael Crossland.

Michael has lived a life full of adversity, pain and suffering yet is one of the most positive people I have ever encountered.

 

In today’s episode, Michael shares his unbelievable story from surviving a rare form of aggressive, life-threatening cancer as a child and spending a quarter of his life in hospital to becoming a professional sportsman, businessman, one the most in-demand and highly respected speakers in Australia, and now a number 1 bestselling author across 6 different countries.

 

Despite repeatedly being told what he would never be able to do, Michael continues to defy the odds and show the world absolutely everything that he can accomplish.

 

Michael’s raw story will bring a tear to your eye and a smile to your heart as he discusses the keys to success, the importance of embracing change and the mindset needed to achieve your goals. Once you hear him speak, you will have a renewed perspective on life (and you’ll discover that you have little to complain about ever again).

We hope you enjoy this podcast as much as our Platinum Mastermind members enjoyed Michael’s key-note at a recent Deep Dive.  It is nothing short of electrifying – be prepared for goosebumps! 

 

‘When you become a diamond, you’ll see why life had to pressure you’

 

Enjoy.

Sincerely,

Jeremy

Episode 59 - The Women of FOA

Episode 59 - The Women of FOA

September 30, 2020

In the second of this important two-part series, I interview another small group of Farm Owners Academy Platinum Mastermind Members.

This time the wonderful Women of FOA....

Across our community there are some incredible transformations occurring, and some incredible results being achieved – be they financial, on-farm, in-family or individually.

It truly is a unique, positive, supportive and completely dedicated community of over 120 like-minded, growth-oriented farming families, each intently committed to an intensive 3-year business & personal development journey, and on making more money, building better businesses, stronger teams and achieving more fulfilment in their families and lives.

In this podcast interview, I speak with Carissa Schneider, Marion Drew and Shaana Williams and ask them to share:

  • their wins,
  • their challenges,
  • the results they’re getting,
  • what they like most,
  • what they value most, and
  • why they joined in the first-place.

As we invite just 12 more farming families to join our Platinum Mastermind Program this year, I felt it timely and valuable for you to hear straight from the horse’s mouth what our Members are valuing and achieving from their significant time and money investment within the Platinum Mastermind Program.

Applications close on 31st October or when the remaining spaces are filled.  At the time of publishing this episode, there are only 12 spots left.

Episode 57: Coaching Elite Business Teams for Results - James Kelly

Episode 57: Coaching Elite Business Teams for Results - James Kelly

August 31, 2020

How important is your language as a farmer?

 

And how important are your words in enrolling your family & team to achieve all you hope & dream of in your life?

 

Have you ever really stopped to think about it?

 

In this episode, I interview another great mate of mine, James Kelly.  ‘JK’ is Managing Director of Alchimie – a global management consulting and leadership training organisation.

 

Having worked in, coached and trained the pinnacle of leadership teams within some of the largest construction projects across Australia and oversees, he is more than qualified to speak about how each of us can better communicate as leaders.

 

What JK shares with us is equally applicable within our farming teams, just as much as it is at the highest levels of commerce.

 

In this interview, JK & I explore:

  • how to align teams to a common goal,
  • how to bring multiple families and businesses together,
  • what tangible things we need to do in order to make our future a reality, and
  • how to engage with our team deeply, and lead with conviction.

Importantly, we explore how to change our language as leaders, in order to inspire better outcomes, and the importance of accountability (and being coached!) in delivering an effective business result.

 

We also explore how the mind works, scientifically, and how we can train it to perform better under pressure and be more effective in truly connecting with our people.

 

For me, this has been one of the most enlightening podcasts I have recorded to date. The fact that this is with my best mate is a true privilege.

I hope you enjoy listening to this interview as much as I did creating it.

 

Sincerely,

Jeremy

Episode 56: What does an ARROW & COMPANY CULTURE have in common?

Episode 56: What does an ARROW & COMPANY CULTURE have in common?

August 26, 2020

Out of 10, how do you rate your company’s culture, and what do you do in order to enhance & optimise it?

Team and family culture is at the essence of how well our farming teams perform and achieve.

Team and family culture can be the thing that truly sets you apart as a business in both your area and market.

It’s ultimately an extension of you, and a legacy you can leave.

At the same time, culture is intangible, and as a result so often neglected in our own leadership.

In this podcast, we give you a taste of the type of training we provide to our clients as we take a sneak peek into our Take Control Program monthly business coaching session.  This month, we explored:

 

– what is team and family culture; 

– how good is your culture; 

– how do we rate it; 

– what are the 4 core strategies you can focus on to enhance it; and 

– what can be done to see you create a truly high-performing team and environment.

 

There are 4 core areas of business that can set the foundations for a great company and truly unique family and team culture.

You can download the handouts I refer to in this recording by clicking here.

 

I hope you enjoy this rare insight into our clients monthly training session and learn how to bring these ideas to life for you and your business.

Thank you!

Episode 55 - Mindfulness and it’s Place in Business Leadership

Episode 55 - Mindfulness and it’s Place in Business Leadership

July 30, 2020

I used to think being a leader meant that I had to know it all, have all the answers, control every decision, and work the hardest. I used to think leadership was an ‘intellectual game’ and mindfulness had no place in business… or leadership… or success in most things for that matter.

I certainly didn’t make any time for it…how wrong I was!  

On my journey in business and leadership, I now understand that our mental health and strength is of the utmost importance. I appreciate that removing the busyness, being able to truly focus, quietening the mind and looking after my mental wellbeing and mindset is fundamental to being a composed, confident and successful leader.

In this podcast, I interview FOA Business Coach and founder of the Soul Pleaser Program, Tracy Secombe who is an irrefutable authority on this topic. I am also joined by FOA Platinum Mastermind Member and founder of The Abundant Farmer, Hayley Grosser who is an equally capable mentor and educator in this space. Together, we discuss the importance of MINDFULNESS in farming and business leadership.

To explore the topic of ‘mindfulness’ further, Tracy Secombe is launching a 7 Day Calmness Code Challenge on Wednesday 13th August 2020.

This program is designed to give us all a head start in becoming mindful, and to help busy people feel calmer - to worry, stress and overthink less in their roles and in their lives.

Tracy and her programs are highly recommended amongst the FOA community. For more information, and to register for Tracy’s 7 Day Calmness Code Challenge, please click here.

For now, enjoy exploring the benefits of a more conscious approach to business and leadership, and all things mindfulness.

Kind Regards,

Jeremy

Episode 54: Pushing Yourself - The Mindset of the Elite with Ricky Dumigan

Episode 54: Pushing Yourself - The Mindset of the Elite with Ricky Dumigan

July 15, 2020

We all have 2 or 3 people who truly inspire us, for me Ricky Dumigan is one of those people.

An incredibly disciplined, dedicated, and resilient high-performance specialist; Ricky has trained elite military teams, the highest echelons of rugby and sport and some of the most significant executive leadership teams in our country.

He is passionate about what it takes to nurture and create true cohesion and alignment within elite teams, and he has a wonderful ability to condense that down into bite-size chunks for people to learn from and use.

Equally, he has achieved some amazing life challenges, including running Kokoda, kayaking Sydney to Brisbane, running marathons and extensive remote leadership retreats.

In all of his accomplishments, Ricky has established a determination and mindset that supports incredible achievement for himself as a human.

It is with real pleasure that I introduce a very good friend of mine to you, where we chat about what it takes to be at your best and lead great teams.

Enjoy!

Kind Regards,

Jeremy

BONUS Episode 52: Money Mastery and How Understanding Your Finances Can Set You Up For Life

BONUS Episode 52: Money Mastery and How Understanding Your Finances Can Set You Up For Life

June 19, 2020

In a special edition interview with Farm Owners Academy Co-Founder, Andrew Roberts, we explore the topic of MONEY in detail.

So many of us have inherited negative mindsets and beliefs around money that are limiting and holding us back.

Many of us don’t fully understand what money really is, and as a result, have a certain disrespect towards earning it, creating wealth, and achieving freedom.

This is such an important topic, but so often NOT talked about.

Andrew shares his experience of ‘getting it wrong’ in his younger years, then committing to learning the essential skills and disciplines needed to creating wealth long-term.

Andrew also shares what you need to focus on to achieve base-level financial mastery, and introduces FOA’s Farm Financial Framework, and how to be part of this first-class training that launches on Friday 3rd July (limited spaces remaining).

Episode 51 - All Things Fine Wool and Great Business

Episode 51 - All Things Fine Wool and Great Business

June 12, 2020

Wool prices have been adversely affected in recent months by the Covid-19 pandemic, no doubt with the potential to severely impact wool producers in the short-term.

In this interview, I speak with leading fine wool producer Cameron England, owner of Lyndall Park near Kingston, SE South Australia.

Cameron and his incredible family have been members of the Farm Owners Academy Platinum Mastermind Program (an exclusive farm-business masterclass) for the past three years. During that time, they have invested heavily in their own development, embraced their learning, and have established themselves, not only as leading members of our growing community, but also within Australia’s elite farming community.

Their inter-generational story speaks for itself, and the benchmark performance results they are achieving, both production and financial, are a credit to Cameron and Katie, and their farm business team.

Importantly, Cameron and Katie prioritise family and freedom. Their focus is on building a legacy for future generations whilst establishing the time, team, systems, and financial freedom to be able to cherish the journey with them. They are intent on building a highly profitable farm business that works for them, not the other way around.

Lyndall Park is a shining example of how good business, strong strategy, great planning and real focus on key numbers can see you profit and thrive even in times of very real industry uncertainty.

A cracking story from a wonderful family.

Enjoy!

Kind Regards
Jeremy
