Business Skills for Farming Success

May 6, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

To succeed in business, you need to be skilled in three areas: operations (production), financial management, and marketing and sales. Most business owners stumble in one of these three areas. This doesn’t have to be a death sentence for your business. It means that you need to round out your team with staff and consultants who can complement your skills. Julia Shanks discusses the different ways in which your business can benefit from solid management in all areas, as well as ways to think about your overall business strategy so you can set yourself up for success.
