OFI 324: How To Develop And Market A Niche Product | James McKendree | Windmill Ceiling Fans Of Texas

 

 SHOW NOTES

KEY IDEAS: 

Today’s interview has a lot of different layers.  Our guest, James McKendree, is a Marine (no longer on active duty), a lay pastor and a business owner.  His grandparents started a windmill business in Texas in the 1960’s.  When James left the military he took the business over.

During the time that James was learning the windmill business he discovered a demand that was not being filled.  People were asking for ceiling fans made from or to look like windmills.  James decided to pursue this new aspect of the business and “Windmill Ceiling Fans Of Texas” was born.

Today James has figured out how to make these fans work, and how to specify them to his customer’s requests.  He got a head start from a woman who had read his website and liked his story so much that she bought two fans from him before he was even finished with his first prototype.  He has learned a lot since going into business for himself, but he never stops trying to learn.

ADVICE FROM JAMES:

EMBRACE FAILURE: Don’t go looking to fail, but understand that there will be failures along the way.  Do not get discouraged by the failures.  Understand they are just part of the business, and be excited for what you will learn from them.

IMPROVEMENT MINDSET: James has an “improvement mindset”.  He is always looking to make things better.  You should do the same.

STUDY: Study your market and get to know it better than anyone else.

BEST BUSINESS ADVICE JAMES HAS RECEIVED:

GET IN MOTION: Do not wait around until everything is perfect.  Get to 70% of perfect and then go forward!

PERSONAL HABIT THAT HELPS JAMES SUCCEED:

I actually did not ask James this question because we were talking forever!  However, there is no question from listening to him that he is a planner and this contributes to his success.

OFI 323: How To Turn Your Neighbor’s Lawn Into An ATV | FFA SAE Edition | Will Campbell | Southern Guilford High School FFA

SHOW NOTES

INTRODUCING WILL CAMPBELL!

I was recently in North Carolina speaking at an SAE camp.  When I polled the advisors that I was speaking to about their students’ entrepreneurship projects a lot of them told me that their students had lawn care businesses.

A lawn care business seems to be very common, and I absolutely love this business.  It is so basic that you start off by mowing somebody else’s lawn for them.  But as you develop you skills you can add on additional services and increase your revenue.  You can scale your equipment and grow your business while creating jobs for other people.  When the business reaches a certain level you can sell it and realized the equity that you have been building.  It is a great model.

Our guest today is from North Carolina and has a lawn mowing business.  Ironically, he and his advisor were not involved in the SAE camp where I spoke.

Will Campbell decided that he wanted an atv.  His folks said that is fine but you will have to figure out how to pay for it.  That is when he started mowing lawn for his neighbors.  With only three customers as clients, Will has been able to save enough and buy his first atv.  Now he is saving for an even bigger one!

OFI 321: Who Am I And Why I Am I Here? | A Look At The Upper Limit Problem

Show Notes

I have consistently been in awe of what this audience has done for me as I developed this part of my agricultural journey.  However, the last 30 days of my life has illustrated this more than ever.

Between being asked to officiate a wedding, to flying off to North Carolina to speak at an SAE camp to coming home and serving as the M.C. of the Miss Rodeo Idaho Competition, my mind is blown. 

All of this has caused me to ask, “Who Am I And What Am I Doing Here”?  There is a lot to this question, but I think it comes down to what is called the upper limit problem.  This is when we cannot see ourselves as more successful than we are right now, so we do something to keep us in our comfort zone.

I keep getting confronted with exiting this comfort zone, and that is a good thing.  As this is happening to me, I know it is or will be happening to you.  So let’s talk about it!

OFI 320: Participating In Grandpa’s Lifelong Dream | FFA SAE Edition | Dylan Caveness | Southern Guilford High School FFA

SHOW NOTES

INTRODUCING DYLAN CAVENESS!

There seems to be at least one thing in every interview that jumps out and resonates with me above everything else.  Our guest today has a passion for beef production, which is something that that two of us have in common.  But what jumped out to me today was how this came about for him.

Dylan Caveness comes to us from Greensboro, North Carolina and he has a beef production SAE.  He works and raises cattle with his grandfather.  What jumped out to me in this interview is when I asked Dylan how long his family had been raising cattle.  He told me that his grandfather had just begun.  He said that grandpa had a lifelong dream of raising his own cattle, and he never gave up on that dream.

Finally grandpa had his own place and his own cattle.  Dylan discovered the same passion almost immediately, and has been pursuing this life right along side his grandfather ever since.  You never know when you are going to do something that is significant for the next generation.  Hats off to Dylan’s grandfather and Dylan too!

OFI 319: How To Make Money With A Waterskiing Business | FFA SAE Edition | Emily Sampson | Lincoln High School FFA

SHOW NOTES

Introducing Emily Sampson! 

Every now and then on this show I run across a business that you would really just think is a fantasy.  Yet, here is somebody who is doing it and doing it well.  These are the kinds of businesses that a million people have sat around saying “I wish I could do this for a living” and then comes along someone with the vision and courage to actually do it.

I am writing this on a Sunday afternoon in July.  I can imagine that there are thousands of people just his afternoon, right now, lounging on ski boats or unhappily loading up their boats to drive home from the lake and prepare for work tomorrow.  So many of these folks are thinking or saying out loud that they wish they could just water ski and spend every day on the lake.  Our guest today has figured out how to do that.

Emily Sampson is a professional water skier and comes from a family with a tradition of loving being on the water.  Her father teaches people how to water ski as a side business, and now she is part of this work.  Emily plans on taking it to the next level and would love to see herself doing this full time at some point.  My fingers are crossed that she can.

Her time in the FFA has given her the ability to see what she is doing through the lens of agriculture.  She understands the importance of the water that she skis on as a resource for farmers and sees how what she does educates people about the importance of the resource and creates a more sustainable system.

OFI 318: How To Turn 20 Acres Into A House With Cattle | Special Coaching Session With Wendy From Ontario, Oregon

 

 SHOW NOTES

KEY IDEAS: 

Today is our second episode devoted to coaching a listener for free.  I hope you see the consistency here. I tell you to work for free, and I am working for free to develop this part of my business.

Our guest today is Wendy from Ontario, Oregon.  Wendy and her husband both work full-time and have a farm dream.  They have purchased a 200 acre farm about 90 minutes away from her husband’s work and recently purchased another 500 acres nearby.  Now they want to fix up an old farmhouse on the property and they need funds to make this happen.

They are leasing out a large portion of the farm and farming the rest.  However, there is 20 acres of pasture available and they have their eye on the cattle business as a way to generate revenue to help with the remodeling of this house.

This turns into more of a consulting session than a coaching session.  But there is good information in here on a couple different models of using direct marketing to make beef really pay.

Other Places You Can Listen To Us:

Check us out on the D&B Supply Show where we get to focus in on very specific farming issues like tank heaters, fencing, regulations, etc.

My guests today have teamed up for their supervised agricultural experience.  This came naturally to them since they were already dating!

Lindsea Cole and Drew Brekke are combining their skills to create “board art”.  They are coming up with creative ideas and then producing them into artwork in the wood shop.  I loved the idea, but I loved the marketing even more.

OFI 315: If You Want To Farm, Shut Off The Television!

Show Notes

I was inspired over the Fourth of July this year, and I hope you were too.  We have so many freedoms and opportunities in our country that you cannot even begin to count them.  At no point in time in history has a nation been more free, more safe or more affluent.

I spent the 4th in Buhl, Idaho with Autumm and Hattie.  Buhl is Autumm’s hometown, and we have been going down there frequently to visit her dad.  A few weeks back I had noticed a gentleman with a business fixing up used, riding lawnmowers and selling them.  While we were there this week I saw a lady riding one of his lawnmowers and something dawned on me.  When it is hot in the summer, like it was this weekend, he is probably out in his shop working on mowers rather than watching television in the evening.

This was a lesson I wanted to share.  For all of us there is something that will distract us, will not benefit us and will keep us from getting closer to our goals.  Whatever, that is for you (with television being the metaphor), get rid of it and do something productive that moves you closer to your dream lifestyle!
