OFI 404: Become A Boat Captain In The FFA | FFA SAE Edition | Josh Loew | Cumberland Regional High School FFA

 

 

SHOW NOTES:

INTRODUCING JOSH LOEW!

I am very lucky to get to interview interesting entrepreneurs from all over the country, and the FFA is no exception.  I get to learn about all the unique aspects of the United States that I would not know existed any other way.

My interview with Josh Lowe illustrates this perfectly.  Josh is a national proficiency winner in outdoor recreation for the work he does at his job in New Jersey.  Josh works for a recreation company that takes people out in row boats to view wildlife, fish and go crabbing in the Delaware Bay.

Over the years Josh has worked his way up, and now is a boat captain, towing customers out to the best spots.  He has learned a lot about running a business along the way.  This also inspired him to study environmental science at Cumberland County College, and it led to an internship with the United States Department Of Fish And Wildlife.

Josh wants to spend his life in hip waders, in a marsh looking at wildlife.  I think he is going to be able to do just that!

Support FFA 

Donate to FFA – One way that FFA students are able to start small businesses is through an FFA grant of $1,000.  In 2014, 141 FFA students received these grants.  With your donations, more students can get this head start – pay it forward.

REASONS TO DONATE TO FFA:

  • Only 2% of Americans grow and raise most of the food and livestock consumed by the other 98% as well as the rest of the world.  FFA is providing the needed education, training and resources to Americans that will carry that torch forward and insure that America continues to have inexpensive, quality food.
  • Rural Communities will rely on entrepreneurship in the future for population growth and job creation.  The FFA is a major catalyst to that entrepreneurial growth.
  • Farmers, ranchers and those working in agriculture give the rest of America incredible amounts of freedom because the search for food is as simple as going to the grocery store:

“Because American farmers are able to provide for so many of us, they give more and more of us the freedom to pursue goals and livelihoods beyond growing the food we need to survive.”
