Farming really offers you everything. I remember talking with a wonderfully intelligent woman I knew who felt that her work no longer challenged her. I thought in my mind that I will most likely never have that problem. Between raising 4 eternal souls, homeschooling them, running a household and business with my husband I am always challenged–in a good way, mostly.
Now is the time for the business of farming. Words like marketing, cash flow, customer retention, asset aquisition and such become part of bed time conversation with Proeun. Decisions have to be made, big decisions like greenhouse placement, cooler placement, tractors, soil amendments and organic certification.
It is a challenge, but I love a challenge. I am so so blessed to be on this journey with my husband, and he loves a challenge to.
So this week, many many phone calls will be made, probably a few big purchases and plans will take shape.
We are also blessed to be presenters at this year’s tinidazole (tindamax) over the counter. We have attended the conference for the past 4 years. Now we actually have knowlege to share. We will be presenting on business plans for long term funding and advanced marketing–sharing your story. One thing I love about this conference is the international component. When I present it will be translated into at least 5 languages–Spanish, Hmong, Somali, Karen and Bhutanese. Amazing to think that I have something to share with people from so many backgrounds.
