5 Tips to Reduce Overwhelm and Watch Your Farm Biz Grow

I have taught marketing to hundreds of farmers over the past 6 years.

Even though they are in the same class with me, learning the same marketing strategy, and walk away with the same plan, there are always those farmers who have huge success and double, triple, and even 10X their business.

And then there’s a small group who really don’t use the material and just don’t feel like they can find time to apply it, even though they see it will help them.

And the difference is not that one group has more access to money or connections.

Instead, the group which moves on to success quicker and with more ease has implemented some key habits that – great news – we can each learn and implement!

More Time/Less Stress? Totally Possible!

Today’s video shares 5 areas of my life where I’ve made a few small changes, and when I did so, I reduced stress immensely and guaranteed I’d have the 20 hours a week I needed to focus on my business growth.

And these tips will allow you to do it with ease and less stress.

Watch today’s video and let me know which one or two of the habits you will implement first!

These seemingly small habits are how I was able to triple my sales for 2018 and feel confident setting an even larger goal for 2019.

You and I have products that are changing people’s lives – we have an obligation to get them in front of the people we can help.

Jump in the comments and let me know which one you’ll try!

    I had recently put the question out to the universe, “WHY am I not more productive with my time?” I am SO appreciative that this video came along to answer that question!
    In 2019, I’m leaving behind a financially successful career of 30+ years. It’s frightening!
    It’s exciting!
    I have many possibilities of what our farm’s products will be but none have been worked as a business so far.
    I will be implementing the food, clothing and who gets your time methodologies for sure!
    Thank you!

      Jetta – I’m so happy I could be the answer from the universe!! I truly believe that – happens to me all the time! Things show up just when I need them.

      Congrats on leaving your career! I totally get it’s frightening + exciting.

      Keep in touch with all your progress. Thanks so much for being here!!

    Love your videos and challenges!
    My uniform is jeans from the thrift store and chambray long-sleeve shirts from WalMart,. I probably wear out 5 sets per year.
    My resolution is to pre-plan meals, having the same 5 basic suppers on the same 5 workdays each week, with leftovers on weekends.
    I tore apart a free calendar, glued it onto cardboard from a freezer box, blocked out family time, and planned for the whole year with different enterprises in different colors, inspired by an earlier video. Now that is freeing!
    I struggled valiantly last Jan/Feb with making a website using your series and wow! the results are amazing! Now people can find us easily.
    Keep up the good work! You are looking younger all the time!

      Hi, Penny – love this so much!! Thanks for sharing how the videos inspire you!

      I’m glad my yearly planning vid helped, too – sounds like you’re all set!

      Thanks for the compliment. I drink LOTS of raw milk – it’s the fountain of youth, hahah!!

    Hiya: Curious what you have for breakfast every day. I am looking for a simple breakfast with less wheat products.
    thanks for the video – great information.

    • Charlotte December 29, 2018, 4:03 pm

      Ahh, given that we’re a raw milk dairy and I’m a HUGE fermented fan, I just have about 1.5 cups of raw milk kefir every morning & that’s it til noon.

      But if I work out extra or am extra hungry, I’ll have an egg with super runny yolk, again, for best nutritional benefit.

      We’re not wheat people either – pretty much avoid it completely now.

      My husband is an egg & meat for breakfast person. Plus kefir. That’s just too much for me.

      Thanks for asking!!

    Thanks for the video, Charlotte. Earlier this fall I identified that I’m generally really slow at making decisions. Your suggestions really resonate with me: eliminating the need to make many decisions. I’ve already implemented the clothing thing. Areas that I will focus on next are streamlining eating and selecting in advance who gets my time.

    @ cathy, I eat oatmeal for breakfast. with fruit and either flax or chia seeds.
