I have heard it said in my travels that success leaves clues.
I have also heard it said that history often repeats itself.
In this podcast, we hear the story of a 95-year-old gentleman – also a great Australian businessman and entrepreneur.
This story is told through the eyes of his now 62-year-old son – also a great Australian businessman and entrepreneur. This is a story of initiative, passion, grit, determination and persistence.
We hear how important traits of success in leadership and life can be passed down through generations, and how these traits are perhaps the most important things we can wish to inherit from the generation before us or provide to the generations that follow.
We hear about dedication to making a difference of significance to an industry that he and his incredible wife genuinely love.
We hear of how it feels for that same husband and wife team to see their 38-year-old vision and dream become a reality.
In this Podcast, we also get to learn about:
- what it takes to truly succeed in business;
- what is missing in most Australian farming businesses that truly holds them back;
- what it means to identify ‘a gap’ in the marketplace; and
- what it takes as an entrepreneur to back yourself and those around you to fill ‘that gap’ and create something truly meaningful that adds real and lasting value to those you choose to serve.
A highly compelling story, from a man I am now proud to call my friend, mentor and business partner.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Greg Johnsson and the Farm Owners Academy story.
