“It feels scary to work with a dangerous animal, but it's within our wheelhouse. To do something that is unknown--to reach out, to ask for help, to admit we don't know--to go into that sort of dark place outside of our circle of control and our circle of knowledge into some nebulous “out there”, so that we can make that circle bigger--THAT’s scary. I gotta tell you, once you open that door, once you open that circle, it's COOL. It's really cool. You sort of see the world in a different way. And feel lighter.”—Jenn Colby
A fun two-solo-minis in this episode, with host Jenn Colby. First, a Chore Chat…headphones on, chores in the background set of observations and ruminations around the topic of leadership and what makes a leader, or even how leadership skills can be developed. Is this something you think about much in farming or ranching? I sure do! There are plenty of leaders around us all the time in agriculture, who just don’t see themselves that way.
The second mini is the story of my first sheep and the moment of clarity I had—after years of raising animals—that NOW I was finally a REAL farmer.
