So often in this game, we attend only the training put on by the R&D extension agencies or free events by our advisers.
So often, we wait for a grant to become available before we commit to a course, or we focus on improving our skills ONLY when there is a subsidy or sponsorship toward the funding of it.
My point is: So many farmers don’t invest enough in themselves!
In this episode, Andrew ‘Robbo’ Roberts (Farm Owners Academy Co-Founder) & I re-connect and focus on the impact of making a significant investment in your own development. We reflect on how a commitment of $25,000 toward a business coaching certificate changed everything for each of us.
In farming, we will buy flashy cars, new Utes and all the plant & equipment we might need, yet neglect one of the single best investments we can make!
In this episode, Robbo & I explore the following:
the importance of investing in ourselves;
why people don’t do this and what this can mean;
why people can be closed to learning new concepts & principles;
why we seem to prefer to ‘defend what we know’;
the value of making this your priority; and
the results that can come in so doing.
We also talk about the TAKE CONTROL Program, why we created it, and the campaign we are running now for our 2023 intake.
I am constantly so immensely impressed by the investment our Farm Owners Academy Members make in their own development - time & money. I respect just how committed they are to their own growth and improvement. The results they achieve truly speak for themselves.
Make an investment of significance in your own growth this year - I promise, the rest will take care of itself!!
