Andrew (Robbo) Roberts here. I helped co-found Farm Owners Academy with Greg Johnsson.
I’ve recently returned after 18 months off (I took some time out to deal with two little boys under 2). Here I am with my family – Oscar, me, Jamie and my wife Sonja (Sunny).
I will be sharing my experiences with you each week with a blog post, so please stick around as I want to add as much value to you as possible.
The focus of these posts is to help you realise the mission that sits behind Farm Owners Academy – which is helping you run a freedom farm.
A freedom farm is a highly profitable business that can work without you.
I feel I have a lot of experience in this area, as I have now built three companies that have achieved this.
But please note…I am still a student, still learning, and I am certainly not a know it all, but I do want to share some insights into how you can also create this for you and your family.
I love business.
For me, it’s a game (a very hard game to play).
I love the challenge of business, and I love the growth you can go through as a person. However, business really tests you and can knock your confidence if you are not careful, leading to excess stress and unhealthy patterns and behaviours (I’ve been there and done all of this).
But if you can master it, I believe you can really master your life.
Growing a great company gets you to look in the mirror and helps you look for ways to become a better person. And this is what drives me to keep coaching and helping you.
It’s helping you become the person that you were born to be.
So I am going to start with my first tip.
A goal is simply a dream with a deadline.
If you want to run a freedom farm, the first thing you need to set is the date by which you want to achieve this goal.
It’s July 1, 2030, and our farm is running completely without me. We are profiting [insert your dream profit goal here], and I can comfortably take six months off to travel with my family [or you can change this part].
Have this written down, and stick it somewhere so you see it daily.
Don’t worry about how you will achieve this. You don’t need to know.
The goal is nothing but a stamp in the ground that now tells your brain you are on a journey to something great.
And notice how I have written this as though it has already happened? This is important.
You need to write down your goals as though you already have them. The more specific you are with your goal, the higher your chance of getting it.
Look out for the posts I will be sharing over the next few months.
We will be diving into the world of money and what holds you back from having all the wealth you ever thought was possible so you can live a happy and abundant life.
