We are a small business consisting of three people with lots of ideas. To put all those ideas into some form of direction takes planning. That is what we did two days in November and December. The kitchen table was just the right size for three people, papers, note pads and beverages.
It is amazing how a small business can come up with so many ideas. We focused mostly on sales and products. However we also shifted into the abstract: what is the plan if a key person dies or becomes incapacitated? This is not unlike the decisions farmers have to make from time to time.
I think the most invigorating feeling that I got from this round table meeting was the need to go forward. We want to get better at what we do. We want to focus on the ag market and the turf market bringing to both the best information, knowledge, and products that we can find to help our customers move forward with success. Yup it was a good day around the kitchen table and we look forward to implementing our ideas in the year ahead.
