Starting, running or growing a farming or fishing business isn’t easy. A business coach can help you get ahead faster than you would on your own! Whether you’re just getting started, growing your business or just trying to manage the day-to-day, this 10-month program will give you the skills you need to run a more productive and profitable business.
The Young Farmer Business Program is offering five businesses the opportunity to be part of its individual business coaching program. Coached one-on-one by Richard Groom, a business coach with over 20 years experience working with primary producers.
Now in its third year, previous participants have said things like:
“We work on the business instead of in the business. We are better planners, we are better business people now. We used to just have a business, now we’re actual business people”
“[The coach] made us cost everything: how much it cost to get out of the harbour, every bucket of feed, every trap. When he started I thought, ‘What is this?’ but now it is so useful. You can make informed decisions about everything you do… Before the program, if we wanted more money, we fished more. Now we know the value of that time in Excel.“
So if you’re trying to get organised or feeling overwhelmed, apply now to get your business on track and firing!
Applications have now closed.
