  • The benchmarking results that we got three years ago as opposed to the ones we got now are just amazing.
  • The roadmap for our future is looking bright. We’ve got the skills and the tools that Farm Owners have given us and yes, onwards and upwards for us.

Platinum Mastermind

  • We’re leaps and bounds ahead of where we were, we only just wish we got into something like this a lot earlier.
  • Greg came out and spent just one day with us talking, we’re now out of debt and moving ahead… it was a 2 year turnaround.

  • My take home message is: write down your jobs and goals…. if its not written down it doesn’t happen

Dave & Bianca McGiveron
Take Control Program

  • This time last year we were mentally struggling, our heads weren’t in the right place, we were playing the victim and felt everything was out of our control.
  • This year we’re in such a better position because the TOP Producers Workshop gave us tools to put some action into place.
  • Despite the drought we had a record month and we’re on track to achieve a revenue of $1m by this time next year!
  • We’re so grateful for the tools you have given us to exceed in our business.

Cameron England
Platinum Mastermind Testimonial

  • Prior to me joining Farm Owners Academy, it was all work hard in order to achieve in life, whereas now we are working smarter. We have more efficiencies by having an amazing workman, it has really freed me up to spend time on the strategic side of the business. By having the right staff, the right systems, and strategies in place we can do that.
  • Since joining Farm Owners Academy, we have now set ourselves a goal of 40 kilograms of clean fleece weight per hectare, which is a 33% increase on our first two benchmarks .
  • We’ve got goals and targets, 1-year, 3-year,10-year goals and off/on farm investments to make sure that down the track when it comes time to hand over, or whatever happens in our succession planning, it’s going to make that process so much easier by planning from an early age. I know that if we implement the strategies that we have learnt through Farm Owners Academy, follow the process, have our goals in place that we will achieve them and go beyond.
  • “It has honestly changed our life and it will change our future generations life”.
