All of the guests for this episode are listeners of the show. Listeners just like you.

A few months ago I asked for feedback on the first season of the show, and I received a ton of it.

Today, I will share some of it with you.

If you submitted feedback for the show and gave me the OK to read it, thank you, this episode is yours.

As humans I think we live in a guru culture. A culture that puts people on a pedestal.

And that can be dangerous because it creates limiting beliefs.

Beliefs that we could never be like them.

Beliefs that we aren’t good enough.

Beliefs that we have some sort of unfair disadvantage.

Beliefs that we can’t do what they do.

Because they are an expert, and we aren’t.

A lot of people view Curtis as that expert and put him on that pedestal of knowledge.

They create limiting beliefs in their mind and tell themselves, I could never do what Curtis does.

I have sat in workshops with Curtis and heard it first hand, time and time again.

And if you believe that, that you could never do what Curtis does, then Henry Ford said it best…

Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – your right.

This episode today is for the people who think they can.

If you ever feel stuck or stalled or find yourself struggling and wondering if you can actually do it, then here’s an episode for you.

An episode full of stories of “ordinary” people doing the hard work to go after what they want in life, and showing that it might not always be easy, but it is possible.

The Urban Farmer by Curtis Stone

The Urban Farmer is a comprehensive, hands-on, practical manual to help you learn the techniques and business strategies you need to make a good living growing high-yield, high-value crops right in your own backyard (or someone else’s).

Major benefits include:

  • Low capital investment and overhead costs
  • Reduced need for expensive infrastructure
  • Easy access to markets

Growing food in the city means that fresh crops may travel only a few blocks from field to table, making this innovative approach the next logical step in the local food movement.

Based on a scalable, easily reproduced business model, The Urban Farmer is your complete guide to minimizing risk and maximizing profit by using intensive production in small leased or borrowed spaces.

    Always exactly what I need to hear, when I need to hear it. Listened to this episode 3 times in a row to get me through a rather unmotivating day. Thank you Diego and Curtis. Permaculture Voices has been the motivation to go out there and do it. Hope to see ya’ll at PV4!

    tell the guy saving up for the walk in cooler to look at large chest freezers converted to fridges. a lot less risk – if things don’t work out you can sell them easily. if you buy used chest freezers you can resell them at what you paid for them and you can scale up and down as needed.
