Sharing is caring!

Business can be a very lonely place. Farming can be isolating. 

Sometimes… no, often… we can feel like we are ‘going it alone’. 

Our challenges, failings, and issues can feel unique to us. 

In my experience, when you commit to joining a Mastermind Group, everything can change. There is much wisdom to call on from those around us, and we quickly realise we are not alone and our issues are not our own. 

In a Mastermind, we get to surround ourselves with like-minded, growth-oriented peers. We get to stand on the sturdy shoulders of giants. 

As we arrive at the end of 2022, it gives me great pleasure to reflect on the year that was with four incredible families and Platinum Mastermind Members. 

In this episode, I invite Michael & Simone Hughes, James & Kylie Armstrong, Luke & Betty-Lou Haydon and Luke & Danielle Wiese to join me for a chat and to reflect on their journey with Farm Owners Academy so far. 

Four great Australian families and four simple questions: 

  • Where were you, and where are you now? 
  • What have you achieved? 
  • What are you most proud of? 
  • How has the Farm Owners Academy community helped you? 

… and so many great lessons and incredible insights. 

Simply, Business Coaching works. Accountability helps. Being part of a Mastermind Group can change everything. 

We are proud of what our members achieve, and these members are no exception. Congratulations to you all. 

Enjoy hearing this episode’s stories and how being part of our program and community can genuinely help you thrive. 

For those interested in commencing a journey with Farm Owners Academy in 2023, our TOP Producers Program 2-Day workshop is a great place to start. We highly recommend this to you. 

This will be our last podcast for 2022. We will be back for more from January 15, 2023, after a well-earned break for our entire team. 

Thank you all for being so loyal to our podcast. Thank you for all you do and for the contribution you each make to our industry and our rural communities. 

All the best for the end of this season, for a wonderful Christmas and a rich and rewarding festive season. I hope Santa is kind to you. 

Merry Christmas,

From Hutch & the entire FOA Team
