“Go and work for a bad boss. Go and spend some time breaking somebody else's machines, losing tens of thousands of dollars on their payroll, before you're doing it on your own payroll. That timing is probably somewhere between, two years at a minimum, and maybe ten years at a maximum. If you do it for much longer than ten years, you're probably going to be so dependent on that salary, it's gonna be really hard to step away from that and make some bold moves.”
Dallas Mount is the CEO of Ranch Management Consultants, which is the home of the Ranching for Profit (RFP) School and the Executive Link program. As a town kid who fell in love with ranching to an Extension agent and eventual RFP Instructor, Dallas has spent most of his adult life around ranches in various stages of challenge and opportunity. He’s learned a lot. Our conversation ranged across topics like learning on other peoples’ places, being a good boss, becoming a competent business manager, owning land, and taking time to re-create yourself.
