Setting Goals and Starting a Business Plan
Developing a solid farm business idea requires a clear sense of what each farmer wants to get out of their enterprise. Some people want their farm to supplement their household income, while others intend to earn their entire livelihood on the farm. As a result, the process of setting personal and business goals is crucial to establishing a strong foundation for a farm business. Webinar participants will learn how to set effective goals and to evaluate those goals using SMART goal criteria. They will also learn how goal setting fits into the planning phase of business development. Free!
