There’s one event that happens in many people’s lives that instantly changes their life forever.
Overnight, instantly, everything is different.
Your life, your approach to life, how you view life, and how you go about living life all change.
It’s an event that some people aren’t ready for and one that others are ready for, but one where no one is ever REALLY ready.
It’s the birth of a child.
A beautiful event that instantly makes life more worth living and richer, but one which also makes life harder and more challenging, especially for entrepreneurs.
If you thought running a business or starting a farm was hard without kids, try doing it with kids, because it’s exponentially harder.
Curtis is a brand new parent experiencing some of those challenges first-hand.
Today, we’ll explore what those challenges are like in terms of life and farming, and how Curtis is dealing with them as a brand new inexperienced father while being a seasoned experienced farmer.
It’s never easy, and as you’ll hear it’s always a balancing act.
But it is one Curtis, me, and most other fathers wouldn’t trade for anything else in the world.
Curtis’s book The Urban Farmer is now an audio book, check it out…

Keep up the work Diego, always waiting for the new episodes on farming small farming smart. It really is a gold mine. It has helped me A LOT to set up my operation and being more effective with my time. Still doing this part time.
Thank you very much!
Yeah, I don’t have a Mark and Toby next year when my son is born and I cannot drop anything except a particular plot, plus I will have a full-time job and I think I actually need another plot just to clear $22k next year farm income, not including my job which will pay more than my farm.
I would then ask, is it worth it? With that amount of time in and money out, it might not be.
