This free workshop will help you integrate a simple-to-use, cash-based planning process into the budgeting system for your agricultural operation, business, or household. This approach will improve your quality of life, profit, and improve your land’s health and productivity too. Thousands of farmers and ranchers have benefited from this process. Learn to manage your money in a way that is environmentally, socially, and economically sound in the short and long term.
Taking control of your money for the months ahead provides peace of mind. By practicing each step in and between sessions, you will draft your own financial plan for the coming year. Sign up while space is available. Bringing your partner is highly recommended.
Lunch is provided during all sessions.
EACH SESSION BUILDS ON THE PREVIOUS SESSION:
- Attend all three sessions to learn more practical ideas to help you.
- Learn from the experience of others attending.
FORMER WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS WISH THEIR KEY PARTNERS HAD ATTENDED, TOO!
