Click HERE for the Free Email Marketing Course

I’ve got an episode today that will shave years of frustration off your journey to managing farm help.

This applies whether you’re about to make your first part-time hire or you have many employees.

It’s for you if it’s high school kids or adults you’re hiring.

Listen to Today’s Episode on Managing Employee’s.

The first month after I started my farm and brought home my first milk cows, I realized there was no way I could get it all done!

By “all,” I mean the milking process, working with customers, feeding my family, and driving my daughter to basketball practice and games six days a week.

I was a little embarrassed to admit that it was physically and humanly impossible for me to run the farm alone!

Now I see how absurd it is for any of us to think we should be able to do it all alone. It’s just not sustainable.

I hired my first employees and then began the process of learning by experience what NOT to do and what works best.

I share some great techniques today that I learned in those first few years.

I share skills you can use to manage your new employee(s) with confidence and ease.

You’ll learn:

  • How to give direct feedback in a way that feels good for you and your employees
  • My formula for evaluating employees’ quality of work
  • A simple question that makes employees feel valued
  • How to get your employees to stay with you long-term
  • And more!

If you’ve ever felt frustrated because you just can’t find good help and then they never seem to meet your expectations, this episode will help.

It’s not that there aren’t good employees out there willing to work hard.

There certainly are, but you’ve got to develop good people-management skills to retain them.

This is part 3 of my 3-part series on attracting, hiring, and managing employees.

Let’s get you some help on your farm!!

You’ll get your time back, but also, tons more joy and fulfillment.

Much love,
