083 - Profitable Urban Farming. A realistic view with farmer Curtis Stone. Working your ass off and making $50,000 on a quarter acre.
-Even if the worst happened and the business failed. How bad would it actually be?
-Learn stuff as you need to. You don't have to learn everything up front. Doing is more important that constantly trying to learn more and know it all.
-Often times a hard commitment or commitment to deliver is what can really make you go out and take something on and work it out and make it happen.
-If it has been done before, then it can be done.
-Realize the power of saying no. You can't do it all.
-Don't over complicate the model. Get it up and working and stable, then innovate, tweak and push the limits.
-Consider the value of your time. Are you spending your time doing high dollar activities?
-80% of your profits come from 20% of your crops. What crops are you focusing on?
-80% of land is dedicated to high and medium value crops.
-You don't have to quit your job to do this. Start on the side.
