Hey guys, Chris and Melissa back with another Family Brand Podcast! In our last episode, we mentioned how investing in yourself is a game-changer when it comes to improving your marriage. Well, today we wanted to dig a little deeper into what investing in yourself actually looks like. You might be saying to yourself “We don't have the finances for that” or “How would I even start?” and we get it! There was a point when we were separated where the most we could do was to invest in our time, but like we said just that little change made a world of difference. Listen in as we talk about how it all started with taking responsibility for ourselves and our marriage, and the small things we did to get the ball rolling. From scribbling what we liked on butcher paper to finding a counselor that helped us figure out what we really wanted in life we can confidently say there is no investment too small. Because when it all comes down to it, the more you start to act like you're worth it, the more your life will begin to grow. Heads up! This kind of investment is contagious so don't be surprised if the whole family starts jumping in on it too! Everyone's journey is different but we hope this episode empowered you to start taking the steps (no matter how small) you need to invest in yourself.

Sian Beilock studies how performance anxiety can be exasperated or alleviated in the simple strategies we use to ensure success under pressure. In addition to that, Sian is the president at Barnard College at Columbia University. Barnard is one of the most selective academic institutions in the US. Barnard is devoted to empowering exceptional women to change the world and the way we think about it. Prior to her appointment as President, she served as the University of Chicago Executive Vice Provost. She also worked in the Psychology department. Sian is a cognitive scientist by training and is one of the world's leading experts on the brain science behind choking under pressure. Sian had a number of amazing insights during our conversation. Some of them include: “One of the hardest parts of learning how to become a successful leader is learning how to delegate and that you can't do everything” (5:45). “We're limited capacity people. We can only focus on so many things at once” (6:00). “My favorite part of being in a leadership position is when other people have really good ideas and I get to help propel them forward” (8:40). “When you have different perspectives at the table and people can speak openly and honestly without fear of retribution, you get the best ideas” (9:00). “We are teaching students at Barnard how to think. Not what to think, but how to think” (14:10). “The greatest performers sometimes aren't the best coaches. It can be hard for them to understand the mistakes of someone who is a novice or someone who's not as skilled as them” (19:20). “I'm a big proponent of having multiple selves. All of the research is pretty clear on that having multiple aspects of your own identity that you can enjoy and focus on is really a good mental health buffer” (23:50). “It's hard not to be able to do everything” (25:20). “For me it's about having the best people at the table” (28:05). “There's something special about having women leading and teaching you, and about debunking the stereotype that women can't do it” (29:00). “Our students come out being willing to speak their minds and being willing to be uncomfortable” (31:15). “The classroom is a brave space, not a safe space. It's totally okay to feel uncomfortable in the classroom” (31:20). “We want you women who have failed, who feel okay taking risks and knowing it's not going to be perfect” (32:00). “Everyone can feel like an imposter, it's not just women” (34:45). “Where I get the most satisfaction is when something is stressful, and I don't know if I can do it all, and I figure out what route we need to take to get there” (35:30). “Figuring out what you don't know is so important for success” (36:50). “Pressure can be both internal and external” (44:00). “If you're going to lead an institution, you have to understand what values that institution holds (46:00). “You can't come in from the outside and just impose your values on a place. You've got to understand what they ethos is and where you can have an impact” (47:00). “I don't think you can do well academically if you don't feel well outside of the classroom” (50:40). “No one can do anything alone anymore. We all need that support” (51:50). “It's got to be fun to work hard in whatever you're doing” (56:00).

As business owners, it's really easy to get overwhelmed by how much there is to do in a day and wind up procrastinating or getting distracted. You can find yourself sitting down at your desk without any idea what to tackle first and never actually managing to do anything. But there are ways to avoid this! In today's episode, I'm discussing how to manage your to-do list, blast through procrastination, and make your work life easier and more productive. First up, I've got some advice on organization and planning, including how to figure out the best organizational methods for you, whether that's sticky notes (my favorite), paper planners, or phone notifications. I also discuss the importance of setting out your daily tasks, especially the ones that make you money, to reduce the time wasted on figuring out what needs to be done. Following that, I talk about being flexible but organized with your schedule, grouping similar tasks together and creating steps to follow while giving yourself the freedom to stick with inspiration when it hits. Then I tackle procrastination and distractions, with some tough love on self-managing our attachment to screen time and digital notifications. And finally, I wrap up the episode by discussing one of my favorite ways of avoiding procrastination: the 15-Minute Hustle, a fantastic tool for getting over the fear of starting tasks you've been dreading and getting them done in fifteen-minute bursts.

And so you can own any or all of those titles. This isn't just some little, small side gig you've got going on. This is a big deal. You started a business, most people don't do that.” - Kristin Ostrander Quotes: “People that come to workshops usually find the most success when it comes to wholesale bundling because they feel supported. They feel like they have these ‘Aha!' breakthrough moments where the course was great, but they got the questions asked, they got to build a bundle together with other people and kind of fail and try again and work through things, and realize how normal that process really is when you do it yourself.” “That's entrepreneurship, you know, you're the one in charge, you're CEO and janitor, you're going to have to do all the hard things and the easy things and all the things until you can hire help.” “The reality is, you have to figure out what works best for you that you are actually going to follow through on. Yes, we can create new habits, that's absolutely true, but you also have to be a hundred percent committed to creating new habits and giving it, you know, six weeks of practice every single day to make a new habit.” “That's a lot of where time is wasted and lost when it comes to an entrepreneur, that we're responsible for so many things that we sometimes sit down at our desk and know that we have a boatload of stuff to do. But we don't really know what to do.” “CEOs and business owners and entrepreneurs face decision fatigue all the time, every day, probably. We're constantly making small and big decisions, and it's exhausting.” “Sometimes, we can't wait for inspiration. We can't wait for the time to be right where we're feeling creative. Sometimes we've just got to do it.” “If we're constantly trying to handle things while we're doing our tasks, we're gonna be all over the place, and all over the place is not where we want to be.” “Life is all about the miscellaneous, right, so we want to make sure that we have space on our calendars in order to handle this miscellaneous stuff that just randomly comes up.” “We can regulate our kids, we can put parental controls on there, and we can, you know, block certain things from their phones, but what are we doing to protect ourselves from ourselves?” “Procrastination is part of everybody's life. It is. It's a symbol of a bigger problem, a symptom really of a bigger problem, most likely a combination of fear, ignorance, overwhelm, being uncomfortable.” “If you only have room for four 15-minute hustles, and you commit to that, you will see your productivity skyrocket. Because you're being intentional, because you're planning, because you put it on a thing, and because you wrote it down,” “Most of the problem is starting the task.” “We spend more than fifteen minutes scrolling on our phones in the bathroom, let's just be real about that. You have fifteen minutes. You have more than fifteen minutes.” “I didn't feel like it was this big, long, overwhelming Saturday where I had to spend the whole day putting Christmas away. Instead, I just did fifteen minutes at a time. And I knew I had a plan for that. And I knew I was gonna continue executing that. It was freedom.

Steve is notorious for killing mature deer and helping his clients find success. Steve is a big woods hunter that pursues deer on public land in Pennsylvania and New York, his tactical and purposeful approach to evaluating and understanding deer movement and establishing a process to harvest deer will translate to your hunting.

Steve's ability to get intel all year long and his focus on scouting over 300 days a year, and his focus on learning about specific deer movement and usage of areas seasonal supports his continued success in the big woods.

Guest Jorge Motoshige felt as though college surrounded him with an interesting, diverse group of people that helped him land in a number of different places with some comfort, because he didn't have any concerns about being able to get out there and meeting new people of all kinds of different backgrounds. Get out there, he did, becoming employee number 113 at Yahoo upon graduation. After a number of years in producing there, he timed his departure right before the first dotcom bust and left the company in 2000. Figuring out where to go and who to be next proved more difficult and so he took the opportunity to travel. Frequent visits to New York made him realize that this California boy could spend two or three years there. Before he knew it, he'd been there for at least 15.Though he joked in college that he doubt he'd live past 40, fate proved otherwise, though his bachelor days were numbered. Through mutual friends, he met Elisabeth, an opera singer from Greece, and ended up married in 2019. The couple lives an international lifestyle with Elisabeth basing her career out of Berlin and Jorge doing likewise from New York.In this episode, find out from Jorge how never staying still lets you consistently amass new experiences …on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley.About This Episode's Guest//Jorge Motoshige, international man of mystery, splits his time between New York and Berlin and the many destinations of his professional and personal travels.

Debby Moorman shares why business development became her career passion and why everybody is better at business development than they think. Find out why the sales label holds so many people back from growing their skills, how being helpful is the foundation for business development, and the aha moment that helped Debby become more effective than ever at building relationships with prospects and clients. Mo asks Debby Moorman: Tell me the moment when you decided that business development is something that you wanted to focus on. Debby fell into business development almost by accident when she was in college after taking a sales job one summer. The key realization was when she figured out that she liked helping people solve their problems, and that was when she decided to shift her focus to professional sales. Debby went on to a professional sales role out of college where most of the training was technical in focus. It wasn't until Debby moved into a national leadership role did she realize that business development skills are just as important as technical skills. That was when she became connected with Mo and the GrowBIG system. Now that Debby is consulting, the focus on business development is even more important. As a service provider, the reality is that you are helping your clients solve their problems, and that is the essence of business development. Companies tend to focus on technical training because there is often so much information to learn and such a large need for that information, businesses are incentivized to pay attention to it. An organization that wants to grow has to invest in its people beyond the technical side. Companies often throw structure at an issue in an attempt to solve a problem. Take the word sales out of your mind if you're just getting started with business development. Retool your brain to frame the conversation as a way of figuring out what the other person needs and how you can help. If you can do that, the conversation becomes less intimidating. Mo asks Debby Moorman: What is your personal development of business development? Business development is identifying high-value relationships, investing in them, and finding ways to bring value to those relationships. It's about matching what you have to offer with the needs of your market and customizing it for each person. Figuring what the client needs is fundamentally about asking the right questions and listening closely to the answer. The key in any conversation is that if you're talking more about yourself than you are about them it's not been a successful conversation. Debby's personal philosophy is if she can help the other person solve their problem, either with something she can offer or by pointing them in the direction of someone else who can help, then the day will come when she does have something that she can offer them. For an hour-long meeting, Debby prepares for at least double that time to make sure she deeply understands the person and the company she is meeting with. The more she can become a student of their business, the more she can make that initial conversation helpful. She will write out a handful of open-ended questions to get them talking and sharing about the challenges in their business. One of the biggest gaps in a good conversation that leads nowhere is that there needs to be a next step. The questions and preparation get the conversation going, but coming up with two or three paths that could lead to a give-to-get or a second conversation is the goal. The goal of the first meeting is to get the second meeting. You need a reason to get back together again. A good rule of thumb for a meeting is that the other person should be talking ⅔ of the time. One of the skills that Debby has had to work on over the years is the power of silence. We have a natural inclination to fill the space, but it's okay to wait. It takes practice to learn these skills but it's more than worth the effort. Mo asks Debby Moorman: What is your favorite science, step, or story from GrowBIG or the Snowball System? Debby's favorite science is the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument. The science behind what type of thinker we are is incredibly valuable. Most people have been through at least one kind of similar training, but they usually can't put it into use. With HBDI, that's not the case. The brilliant a-ha moment for Debby was realizing that you must assume that you have all four thinking types in the room when you're meeting with someone new, and you must tailor your conversation to appeal to all four types. The best part is that the system is easy to remember and put into practical use. HBDI basically says that there are four ways to think based on the physiological structure of the brain. Some people are analytical and some are relational, some are experimental and some are more practical. Components of your presentations and discussions should always touch on all four parts. Debby's second favorite principle is the idea of building it together. Spending time together to think through the various options, you aren't selling them something, you are helping them understand what they need and helping them get that solution. Building it together starts with the preliminary market research and understanding what's happening in their market, and then coming up with a few options for a possible solution. It can take multiple conversations and feedback to figure out the right option for them, but the goal is to match the right solution to the prospect's particular problem. The prospect is probably facing a near infinite number of choices in the beginning. This is the perfect opportunity for you to narrow things down and save the prospect a huge amount of time. During a conversation, Debby is trying to uncover which option would be the best fit, or whether a completely different option may be a better path. There is almost always something new learned during the conversation that changes things, but the goal is to always narrow solutions down and getting clarity on the best next step. Mo asks Debby Moorman: What is one moment around business development that you are really proud of? The current climate has been challenging, and there is one client in particular that she's working with right now that she's proud of. She had the opportunity to reconnect with someone she worked with 15 years ago that recently moved into a more senior role. She reached out to them, but with the way things are right now, she couldn't meet them in person and have a face-to-face conversation with them. What Debby was able to do was have a conversation with this person and simply learn about their new role. She started to hear things that indicated the company was going through a number of changes and was able to offer herself as a resource to be more successful in their new job. This led to more conversations and helping them with relevant research, and eventually getting connected with the CHRO. This relationship from Debby's past has developed into a conversation about how they can all work together. By cultivating a relationship with this person, Debby has opened the door to working with the organization in a deeper scope that wouldn't have been possible otherwise, simply by being helpful. For Debby, the commercial transaction is not a focus when connecting with someone. She brings a curiosity to the table that helps her uncover genuine ways that she can help and by following through, she adds value, builds trust, and creates a real relationship. Be helpful and honest, and the solution will happen. Mo asks Debby Moorman: If you could record a business development tip and send it to your younger self, what would it be? The bottomline is the idea of sales can be scary because we usually think of our worst sales experience and extrapolate that to everything. Debby's advice to her younger self would be to take a breath, and realize that it's all about meeting people and getting to know them, then helping them solve their problems. Changing the label from “sales” to “helping people and solving their needs” is a powerful mindset shift. People usually don't realize that they are selling everyday, they just don't label it that way. If you substitute “solve problems” for “sales”, you're probably doing it all the time. Debby tells the story of an earlier experience where her job was traditional sales, literally going door to door, and how by simply asking questions and identifying the needs of the company, she turned a no into one of the biggest sales of the hotel she was working for. Everybody already sells, they just don't call it that. When you substitute solving problems, you realize that you're already great at what you do, and if you plug in a process like the Snowball System, you can keep getting better at it.

OK, I'm saying it. I am judgmental. Working with a coach, I was told I needed to work on being less judgmental… and it pissed me off. That's how I know there's truth to it.

You've heard me say it before because I think we've all been there. You get diagnosed with PCOS and you think “yes! finally a reason behind why I've got these symptoms going on. Now I can just figure out what to do about it.” You figure that you'll see your doctor, get a specialist referral and you'll be on your merry way.Ugh, as if! As one of our protocolers Lily put so perfectly: “it feels like they're waiting for you to fall off a cliff before they want to help you.” So of course you go searching the internet ‘abyss' for information and try to piece together a list of lifestyle changes that can help your PCOS symptoms. Usually that list ends up being so freakin' long it's hard to keep up with.Lifestyle changes can make a massive, positive impact on your symptoms. But it doesn't mean that loading up on as many lifestyle changes as possible is the best idea. Figuring out what those few ‘high impact' changes are for you that you can maintain long term is what'll really make the difference. In today's episode we talk all about this and more with Lily, one of our lovely PCOS protocolers. Like me — and probably a lot of you — Lily is a perfectionist, type A kinda gal. So when she finally got a diagnosis after years of trying and suspecting, she jumped straight into ‘ok now give me the steps to fix this and I'll follow it to a tee' mode. Which of course left her feeling disappointed and frustrated when she got only tiny, unhelpful crumbs of information from her doctors. There's so much information out there, so she ended up with an extremely long, unsustainable list of changes to made life feel really restrictive. She dealt with aggressive cystic acne (like the accutane type, not a couple of measly spots), uncontrollable weight gain, some hirsutism and unexplained fatigue. Not only did we help her drastically improve those symptoms (5.5 inches of her waist, 6 inches of her hips, no need to sleep in the day, cleared up acne and no more hirsutism!) but she's also come out the other side (and into our Lifers program) equipped with knowledge about her body and with some really solid, fantastic mindset shifts that enable her to continue keeping on top of her PCOS symptoms.If you're feeling like you've tried everything, you're feeling like a failure and it feels like the list of things you need to do to get on top of things is miles long, then you're going to get so much out of this chat. Plus, there were plenty of laughs and relatable ‘that's so me' moments along the way — it's a hoot of a pod!This episode is for you if:You're struggling with uncontrollable weight gainAcne is a major symptom for youYou find that you're always tired for no logical reasonYou feel like your doctors aren't really giving you any options beyond the Pill, IVF and eating less moving moreYou have a type A / perfectionist personalityYou've been looking all over the internet for answers and stitching together different recommendations but you can't seem to get on top of your symptomsYou think you may have or know you have thyroid issuesYou want to know how to make changes for your PCOS sustainableYou think you may have or know you have autoimmune issuesYou're doing so much for your PCOS so you're confused about why nothing seems to be workingTalking to your family and friends about PCOS usually ends up in them asking why you can't eat certain foods and what someone they know did to help their symptomsYour tests have come back ‘normal' but you don't feel normalSome things we cover in this episode:Weight gainAggressive acneWhy making more and more changes isn't always betterWhy conversations with loved ones about PCOS can be difficult and how to approach these situationsWhy your blood tests may show as normal when

Mo asks Debby Moorman: What is your personal definition of business development? Business development is identifying high-value relationships, investing in them, and finding ways to bring value to those relationships. It's about matching what you have to offer with the needs of your market and customizing it for each person. Figuring what the client needs is fundamentally about asking the right questions and listening closely to the answer. The key in any conversation is that if you're talking more about yourself than you are about them it's not been a successful conversation. Debby's personal philosophy is if she can help the other person solve their problem, either with something she can offer or by pointing them in the direction of someone else who can help, then the day will come when she does have something that she can offer them. For an hour-long meeting, Debby prepares for at least double that time to make sure she deeply understands the person and the company she is meeting with. The more she can become a student of their business, the more she can make that initial conversation helpful. She will write out a handful of open-ended questions to get them talking and sharing about the challenges in their business. One of the biggest gaps in a good conversation that leads nowhere is that there needs to be a next step. The questions and preparation get the conversation going, but coming up with two or three paths that could lead to a give-to-get or a second conversation is the goal. The goal of the first meeting is to get the second meeting. You need a reason to get back together again. A good rule of thumb for a meeting is that the other person should be talking ⅔ of the time. One of the skills that Debby has had to work on over the years is the power of silence. We have a natural inclination to fill the space, but it's okay to wait. It takes practice to learn these skills but it's more than worth the effort. Mentioned in this Episode: GrowBIGPlaybook.com email@example.com Debby Moorman on LinkedIn
The final week of the regular season in the NFL is one of my favorites to watch because you have three levels of teams. Those who have nothing to play for because their season is over, those fighting to make the playoffs, and those who can chill because they've executed all year. You can learn a lot from each.

Slightly more than half of the 375 different soils series mapped in Iowa have problems with excess water. The drainage of farmland is obviously important for improving the productivity of Iowa agriculture. Based on the large number of acres susceptible to excessive wetness and the yield response from removing this wetness, farmers and landowners are becoming increasingly interested in drainage. AND that's just Iowa……..!The two major methods of farmland drainage are surface drainage where standing water is removed using surface ditches and subsurface drainage where excess water is removed through a system of underground drainage tiles – that is what we are going to focus onJoel Hayes – He and his brother run Hayes Bros Drainage in Grundy County Iowa and have been in business since 2009. They have covered most of the state of Iowa during their time in business.Their dad/family also farms around 3500 acresJoel Lange - @centraliowa_rainage - Joel and his family own and operate Central Iowa Drainage in Guthrie County Iowa where they have been farming since 2012.Joel's family moved their entire farm from O-Neill Nebraska to Iowa in 2012General QuestionsWhat is drainage tile?Drain tile is a system of pipes with perforations or holes that channels water away from intended areasField tile is tubing or pipe buried in the ground to convey subsurface water to an outlet such as a stream or ditchWhat are outlets?The structures used to control the minimum elevation at which water leaves the drainage tile, which in turn controls the maximum elevation of the groundwater table in the area drained by the tile system to which the outlet control structure is attached.What are inlets?Purpose: A common practice that is used to. drain farmed depressions is a tile riser, which is essentially a pipe that acts as a direct conduit for water from the field to the receiving ditch or stream. A blind inlet or French drain is used to filter at least sediment from the water that is drained from the field.Why do we install drainage tile?The purpose of subsurface drainage is to lower the water table in the soil. The water table is the level at which the soil is entirely saturated with water. The excess water must be removed to a level below the ground surface where it will not interfere with plant root growth and development. The major reason for installing subsurface drainage is to improve the productivity of the farmland. Higher yields translate into more returns. This is especially true in recent years due to higher grain prices. So the investment decision is based on whether the higher crop returns will justify the investment in subsurface drainage.Types of tilePerforatedSolidComes with socksHow long is tile good for?When does it need replaced?Useful life of clay tileWhen was plastic first installedIs that plastic technology improved for today?Is there a right time to install tile?Always….Is there a wrong time to install tile?Reasons to tile when inputs are highWe want to put tile in….how do we get started?Prepare a planContact the USDA for approval – starts at the FSA officeWhat are recommended best practice steps to take?Mistakes to avoid?If it's hard to expand your farm by buying high priced ground or renting more ground, how can tile help improve your bottom line?Tiling for a tax deductions…..does this work?Better than equipment purchases?Any specific tile tax breaks?Figuring out return on investment on tileCan you believe the information coming from tile guys? – Do they just want to sell more tile?Are there other resources to use? ISU Ag Decision MakerThe most difficult part of computing a tile investment analysis is estimating the yield response from the improved drainage. The size of the expected yield improvement dramatically impacts the economic feasibility of installing tile drainage, as shown in the example below.Example:A 10 bushel per acre yield response from corn and a 4 bushel per acre yield response from soybeans will provide an average annual return of $35 for corn at a price of $3.50 price ($3.50 x 10 bu. = $35) and $36 for soybeans at a price of $9 ($9 x 4 bu. = $36). If the yield responses are 20 bushels for corn and 8 bushels for soybeans, the returns are double.Estimating future returnsIn the analysis above we assumed that the annual income stream will stay constant throughout the entire life of the tile. However, this may not be the case. Corn and soybean yields have increased over recent decades as shown in Figure 3. Corn yields have increased by 2.4 percent and soybean yields by 1.8 percent per year since 1980. Most experts expect this trend to continue, if not increase. The impact of trend yield increases over the life of the tile drainage can be substantial.Tile Investment StrategiesA variety of investment strategies have emerged for the installation of tile drainage. Some of these are based on installations over a period of time. Others are investment arrangements between tenants and landlords on rented land.1) Install subsurface drainage on the entire field With this strategy, the decision is made to install drainage tile on the entire field or farm. Bids and designs are obtained from various tilers, and the decision is made to move forward with tiling the entire field or farm. 2) Design the entire drainage system but install over a period of years – This is similar to the strategy above in that the drainage system for the entire field or farm is designed up-front. However, the actual investment and installation of tile drainage is spread over a period of years, often as income becomes available.3) Invest a fixed amount of money in drainage With this strategy, the investment decision is based on spending a fixed amount of money on drainage. The system is then designed to get the most drainage benefit from the limited amount of money. Although this may optimize the benefit from the investment, it often leads to a “patchwork” system as subsequent investments are made over a period of years and does not provide for the best overall drainage system.Landlord/tenant strategies 1) Landlord Investment Strategy – The traditional landlord/tenant investment strategy is for the landlord to make the tiling investment and charge the tenant a higher cash rental rate. The higher cash rental rate is due to higher yields achieved from the drainage and provides the landlord with a return on his/her tiling investment.The additional cash rent can be computed from the estimated increase in net return from tile installation. For example, if the cash rental rate is currently based on the typical rate in the local community, the new rate will be the typical rate plus the additional net return from the estimated increase in net returns from drainage.The additional cash rent can be computed based on a fixed rate of return from the tile investment. For example, if the tiling investment is $500 per acre and a rate of return of 8 percent is desired, the additional cash rent is $40 per acre ($500 x 8% = $40). If the cash rental rate is currently based on the typical rate in the local community, the new rate will reflect this typical rate plus $40.2) Tenant Investment Strategy – The tenant makes the tile investment on the landlord's farm. Because the landlord makes none of the investment, the cash rental rate does not increase due to the increase in productivity. The additional net returns go to the tenant as compensation for the tiling investment. A major concern for the tenant is whether he/she will have access to the land for a long enough period of time to justify the capital investment. One approach is to enter into a long-term lease between the two parties. However, individuals often do not want to lock themselves into a lease for this length of time. In Iowa, farm leases of five or more years in length must be recorded and multiple-year leases may not exceed 20 years.Another option is to continue with one year leases but execute an ancillary contract dealing specifically with the tiling. Under this contract the tenant receives a pro-rata buyout of the tiling investment from the landowner if he/she ceases to rent the farm during the lifetime of the tile.For example, assume the tiling investment is $400 per acre and the life of the investment is 20 years. If the tenant ceases to rent the land after five years, he/she receives a payment of $300 per acre. Leaving after 15 years results in a payment of $100 per acre and after 20 years there is no payment.The length of the buyout period is negotiable between tenant and landlord. The buyout payment can be made by the landlord. An alternative is for the new tenant to make the buyout payment to the tenant that is leaving and take over the remaining life of the contract.3) Shared Investment Strategy – The landlord and tenant share the tiling investment and use a crop-share lease. The investment is shared in the same proportion as the crop is shared in the leasing arrangement (e.g. 50/50). With this arrangement, each party receives the additional net returns in the same proportion as the investment. An arrangement is made where the tenant will receive a prorated buyout if he/she leaves the farm before the useful life of the tile is expended. An alternative is for the landlord to make the investment and modify the crop share lease provisions to reflect the change in contribution.Cost share programs?Tied in with bio-reactors?Payment plans?

On this episode of Financially Naked: Stories from The Financial Gym, two of our Level 2 Certified Financial Trainers, Mike Poulin and Sara Belhouari, sit down to talk all about goals! They discuss their favorite kinds of goals, how to achieve them, and how to keep yourself motivated along the way. The end of the year is a popular time for reflection and goal setting. This episode is full of tips about how to be thoughtful and intentional with your new goals! Even though it's an especially popular topic this time of year, you can set a new goal any time. The tips and exercises in this episode can be used any time of year. Podcast Notes You don't have to wait for the New Year to make changes, but there is something magical about a fresh start in January. It's a great time to reflect and ground yourself again. Sara and Mike are both people who like to set goals. Mike's are more reflective and Sara focuses on very interpersonal goals with tangible metrics-based goals sprinkled in. FIND WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU Goals are your values put into reality. If you know what your values are, setting goals becomes easier. Plans at The Financial Gym are designed around your goals. Figuring out what those are is a huge step. The first quarter is explortarty for the clients and often, the goals change! Clients will ask their trainer, “what are other people's goals?” There are many outside forces: friends, family, social media, society, all influencing what we think we want. Your goals don't have to be, ‘buy a house,' ‘have a kid,' or ‘buy a car.' We assume they have to be big, tangible milestones, but there are many types of goals! They can be around setting boundaries, feeling more confident, saving a certain amount of money. It's about figuring out what YOU want, not what somebody else wants. Sometimes you find new goals while living life. Mike shares an example about setting boundaries and how it was a goal he didn't know he needed. Society has a very set structure and if you want anything outside of that, it's seen as taboo or weird. It can be easy to adopt the goals of others and society. You are the only person who can hold you truly accountable, so set goals that YOU want to achieve. SMART GOALS Smart is an acronym to help aid in goal setting. It helps you with setting goals beyond, ‘I want to save money this year.' SMART stands for: Smart Measurable Achievable Realistic Timeframe This framework is a great starting point, but you can modify and adjust it to fit your needs! Don't get caught up in the weeds if that isn't enjoyable for you. Setting goals doesn't need to be a stressful process. When it comes to the ‘realistic' aspect of SMART goals, don't sell yourself short. Even if your goal might not seem realistic, put it out there! Speak it into existence. Once you say it out loud, there's a better chance that it is going to happen. It can be hard to admit or even know what you actually want, especially after the last few years. Sometimes you have to think out of the box and really go for it. You never know what might happen. The universe has a funny way of making things happen. At times, the goal is not clear. When that happens, it's time to get out and find the next best thing! Life is unpredictable. TAKING ACTION Once you have figured out the goal, what's next? How do you start making it happen? Taking action on the goals is the most important thing. You have to make a plan and spend time working on it, or it is not going to happen. You can use an app, spreadsheet, or journal! There are tools out there to help you with the measurable aspects of the goals. Once you figure out what you want, reverse engineer it. If there is too much time clutter in your day, clear the space to take action on your goals. If you're a person who sets goals, but struggles with follow through, find an accountability partner. This can be a friend, coach, or a trainer at The Gym. Accountability works and there's no shame in having people on your team helping you achieve your goals! If you are looking for a BFF (Best Financial Friend) or want a Certified Financial Trainer to help you figure out your goals and hold you accountable, head to TheFinancialGym.com to book a complimentary consultation today!
