Sharing is caring!


The 10th annual RUOK Day takes place on Thursday 12th September 2019. 

Farm Owners Academy wholeheartedly supports the RUOK initiative because we recognise the prominence of mental health issues within farming. 


In a bid to raise awareness, we are dedicating this episode of the Profitable Farmer podcast to this poignant cause. 


Today, I have an in-depth discussion about mental health within the farming community with Tracy Secombe, renowned mindset coach and creator of Soul Pleaser™


For the past 3 years, Tracy has been leading our team of Platinum Mastermind coaches which has given her a unique insight into the personal lives of hundreds of farmers, their struggles, issues and fears. 


There is so much wisdom in this interview.


Tracy explains why so many of us ‘people please’, and the impact this has on our mental health. 


We also discuss: 

  • Why male farmers carry so much fear of failure and how anxiety is created from losing the farm 

  • How so many people put on a brave face but are actually really suffering at home 

  • Why depression is created by analysing the past, and anxiety is worrying about the future 

  • Why we avoid communicating what we truly want in order to avoid potential conflicts 

  • Why many family-run businesses have issues with communication 

  • The underlying reasons for arguments within families 

  • Why succession planning has become taboo 


We hope this podcast resonates with you on some level; or at the very least, encourages you to ask “RUOK?” 


Please, share this with another farmer today 🙏🏼 


Take it easy,
