Episode 184: “Let’s Stop Procrastinating” w/Elaine Froese

In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks to Elaine Froese about transition planning in this episode titled “Let’s Stop Procrastinating.”

In this conversation, Tracy & Elaine discuss:

  • The very real danger behind procrastinating when it comes to transition planning.
  • Tracy asks Elaine, “why do farmers procrastinate on this conversation?”
  • Tracy presents Elaine with three scenarios and what farm kids should do if they are stuck in any of these situations:
  • Wanting to have a transition planning conversation but scared to bring it up.
  • What to do when discussions are had, but nothing happens afterward.
  • What to do when your attempts to talk about transition planning with the farm founders continually get brushed off.
  • Elaine speaks to the importance of blocking time off for essential conversations that can so quickly go ignored.
  • We wrap the episode up with Elaine's final thoughts and transition planning wisdom.
