Tips from Rob on Transitioning Into Farming

  • Surround yourself with successful people and you are by default raised up to their level.  This includes virtually.
  • Get debt free or at least have a solid plan in place when you transition into farming.
  • You won’t know everything when you start, but that shouldn’t hold you back.  Start somewhere.  Try something.
  • Take what you have now and use it.  Can you apply it to what you want to do?
  • Use the skills that you have to your advantage.  Rob was able to apply a lot of his skills from the corporate world to farming.
  • Everyone starts somewhere.  Accept that.  It won’t all happen overnight.
  • “I determined what I needed to do, to position myself towards an exit strategy that would get me to where I wanted to be as quickly as possible, and also make the money that I needed to do that.”
