1. Set Your Priorities. Oh yes. This is not the time to dabble into so many things. You must sit down and set your priorities in the farming business. Do you want more profits? Do you want to use less resources to get better results? Do you want to scale down your business to manageable levels? What do you want? Do you want to collaborate with other farmers or others for more business? Sit down and get clarity on this.

2. Stay The Course. I always tell farmers in our monthly seminars that the most prevailing secret of successful farmers is the never say die attitude they possess. Those who give up easily cannot succeed in life and business. Learn to stay the course and see your plans succeed no matter what. Be reminded that winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win.
