These Three Things…

Recently, I’ve had an opportunity to do some thinking about what tactics have really helped me to be more successful, and perhaps more resourceful, in my own business. One of the techniques that I have found to be very beneficial is what I call “These Three Things.” It actually started with a concept introduced by […]

“Poking the Box”

I recently finished reading a great book by Seth Godin entitled Poke the Box. I would encourage you to read it as well. It certainly got my thinking going with regard to changes I want to initiate in my own business. The central theme of his book is that we all have opportunities available to […]

Your Tax Dollar at Work

Recently, I’ve had numerous conversations with producers who, to varying degrees, have expressed their disappointment with the smaller than expected payout from the Federal dairy price relief program. I can completely empathize with them. However, my suggestion to all of them is that, although it would have been a genuine “shot in the arm” for […]

The Long-Term Impact of Positive Decisions

In so many situations, the focus of our business decisions revolves around their short-term effects, rather than the long-term impacts of these same decisions.

I always find it interesting to visit with various business people and discuss the challenges they are currently having with regard to running their operations.

“Desperate Times Call for…”

The rest of the title line is “Desperate Measures.” However, I disagree with that concept. Realizing that there may be desperate times coming in the future (and that’s always a possibility…), we need to be proactive in our approach to business. I like to call it “Thinking for a Change.”

“The Times – They are Changing…”

Some of you probably remember the old song recorded by Bob Dylan many years ago. In it, he appealed to many, including Senators and Congressmen, that the times were changing, and that we needed to take some positive action to move forward successfully.

“I Know I Live in Hell, but…”

I recently finished reading a book by Dr. Henry Cloud entitled Necessary Endings that included a quote from one of his patients who stated, “I know I live in Hell, but I know the names of all the streets.” That quote really caught my attention and reminded me to make some positive changes in my […]

Dealing with the Devil…

The devil, in this case, is uncertainty. Everyone in every business faces it at some point! In late 2017, I had a conversation with a Client who said: “There is so much uncertainty, I don’t know whether to contract feed or not.” His nutritionist had recommended contracting some commodities, his bank was in the process […]
