The day went so fast and I met so many wonderful people who were either starting out in the business or had been in it for a long time but were trying to improve their horse business on many levels. Then I met these two amazing young girls.
They not only wanted to learn but they were taking their time and trying to lay a good solid foundation for setting up their horse business. They were willing to do what ever it takes and even though they knew it would be a few years down the road, they were doing their homework and preparing for it now.
It was a wonderful workshop and everyone that came had a heart to learn different ways of doing things and how they think about themselves as business owners. It is never too late to learn and whether you are young like those two young women or in your forties like I was when I started our boarding barn, it is never too late to learn and grow as an equine professional and business owner.
Today I encourage you to try to learn something new each day either about yourself as a business owner or about the horses in your care. Never stop learning. That is what will separate your barn and business from the rest.
You are never to young to start learning and never too old to learn new ideas and ways of doing things when it comes to your horse business.
As for those two young women, I congratulate them on going to the next level and taking their career seriously. What you do in the early stages will make all the difference in the long run.
If you are new to my blog, then welcome! I wrote my newest book to give you an in-depth look into the business of boarding horses and all that it entails. This post today is one small example of what my new book addresses. If you are boarding horses or are planning on it, please check out, "A Step By Step Guide To Starting And Running A Successful Horse Boarding Business." It is a very comprehensive book on boarding horses and covers every part of it from building your barn or stable to solid barn management. I wrote this book because I realized there is an information gap when it comes to this subject and my goal is to help others so they don't make all the mistakes I made when we first opened our boarding facility. I want you to be prepared for the crazy and wonderful new career you are going into.
I wish you the very best in your horse business,
