There’s something to be said for owning your own business and that’s exactly what I’ve set out to do. I’ve had this farm forever and we’re kind of out of the way but we decided last year to turn our farm into a full-scale lavender operation and offer tours and a food counter. People here have been really receptive to the idea and we’ve even had a few tour busses come through and drop off loads of people at once and I think if we keep adding to our offerings we’ll have a really good chance at surviving like this. I got us Satellite Internet Broadband so my wife could work on marketing efforts and I’ve started keeping better records so I can go back later and determine what’s worth it and what’s not and we’re even talking about hiring a couple of people part time to come in and help us run the place. I love owning my own business and I highly recommend it to anyone concerned about their future.
