I started my channel back in 2020 as a way to a chronicle my journey from day 1, as someone who woke up to the risk that a centralized food production system presents. And was learning from scratch as to how to raise animals on grass to produce meat.
I simultaneously realized that the end of the world might be a ways off, and that if I jumped into farming I had to be able to earn a significant income from it. I have been in business for 19 years and have found that the best way to make something sustainable is to find a way to make money from it.
I set out with the goal of building up to earn $100K per year from my 30 acre farm enterprise, with a net profit minimum of $30k. I hoped to reach this goal within 7 years.
With the Lord’s help I was able to reach that goal within 3 years and not 7. That’s without money from YouTube ads, self publishing my book, amazon affiliate marketing, or digital product/class sales. The $100k was money I earned in ways that anyone can: from selling physical products through my farm. I have a separate video on my business model that I have linked in the description, and will link at the end of the video if you want to watch it next.
Despite having reached my financial goals on farm, that original 7 year plan is something I want to stick with and whether it’s continuing to increase the productivity of my flock, diversify my own personal skill sets, or expand the way that I provide marketing resources to help others to monetize their efforts in agriculture; I have some really incredible doors in front of me.
But I came to the point this year where things just started moving so fast.
I am taking 6 weeks off of regular uploads and plan to return on February 7th, 2024.
I really need to quiet myself for a time make sure I am walking through the right doors and not just barrelling down my own path. Ultimately, I want to walk through the doors the Lord would have for me.
I plan to stay active in my newsletter community, so if you want to stay in touch over the next 6 weeks see the link in the pinned comment to subscribe.
