Growing up on a farm helped me in adulthood!

That farm background can be invaluable, kids do need to learn how to work at a young age.

I grew up on a farm in NW Wisconsin, and the lessons have helped me though out my life.

Over the years I have given preference to farm kids too, as well as children of entrepreneurs.

I grew up on a farm and was pretty much forced to work daily on it. After awhile I grew to enjoy working on the farm so much so that at age 20 I went back to the farm to begin the process of dairy farming myself. When I left home and went to the state of Arizona, which was very foreign to me, I easily got my first job when I told the interviewing manager that I grew up on a farm. Farmers are known for their hard work ethic and through the years that has shown in me over and over again. I am competitive and I do not give up easily. From the first calf I picked up and carried across the mud hole just like carrying my own children, I realized the need for me to succeed. That calf didn't grow up to a cow immediately, I had to feed and nourish it to grow. Much like animals, our minds grow when we feed and nourish them. The more positive thoughts we feed our mind the more prosperous we will eventually become.

Bob, fun and deep thoughts wrapped in a simple message. Thanks, Bob! My husband likes to hire those from the military because they are regimented and are used to "taking orders" and working well with others. Same concept, different "line of work" history!
