This week’s episode is a bit different…I brought on Alex Judd, my business coach, to talk about how to set yourself up for success in small business. We talk about goal setting, pushing yourself, working with Millennials, and much more. You may not think this is for you if you’re a farmer, but I’d disagree with that. I always encourage growers to look at their farm through a business lens and this is a great conversation for that!

In This Episode:

>> Why he’s so passionate about leadership and helping small business owners become the best leaders they can be

>> Why people problems are usually leadership problems and how focusing on being a team encourages cooperation

>> How it takes humility to realize you can’t do it all as a business owner

>> The biggest thing that Alex learned from one of his mentors that wasn’t an easy lesson for him to take

>> How goal setting is like sowing seeds

Quotes from the episode

“If someone depends on you, you are a leader”

“The greatest resource you have is the human resource”

“A boss looks for compliance and a leader looks for cooperation”

“In order to pick something up, you have to put something down”
