Welcome to Week 2 of On Pasture’s Virtual Grazing Conference!
If you’re anything like me, a conference shakes up your brain a bit and gives you new things to think about. That’s what I did with Week 1 of this virtual conference by sharing ideas from our Keynote “Speakers” Troy Bishopp and John Marble. Both began looking at their operations differently several years ago, switching from the common mantra of “get big or go home” to trying to create something that would provide them both a living and a life. It’s what we all want, right. But how do we get there?
In week two, Jenn Colby and Troy Bishopp join us to share their “hows.” And yes, they use the “vision” word. But don’t let that throw you. It’s just a way of seeing where you want to go so that you can actually get there. (I wish I’d done more of it myself along the way.) After all, as Yogi Berra said:
“If you don’t know where you are going,
you might wind up someplace else.”
And don’t forget to do the homework. There will be a test. It’s open-book and administered by life itself.
Enjoy and thanks for reading!
P.S. If you’re saying, “OMG! Why is Kathy doing this to us?” it’s as simple as something Jenn told me the other day: “How can we work on our businesses if we haven’t even worked on ourselves?” Like the tires on our vehicles, we need to be well-rounded in order to get where we’re going.
Tired of running in circles? Here’s a way out of the rut.
Jenn Colby knows what that’s like because she’s been there too. But over time, she managed to change.
What happens after you have a vision?
Troy shares where he was headed and then the information he put together and how he figured out which things he need to stop doing, and what he needed to start doing instead. He includes a really frank and open discussion of how it all worked.
The nuts and bolts of thinking about your direction.
No, you don’t have to sit down at a desk to see where you want to go.
Your ideas of where you’re headed might change as you move through life. My 6-year-old self was going to be a ballerina, but later on I changed my mind. Jen’s vision has changed too more recently. See what happened for her. Click here to open the article.

Jenn and I are busy cooking up something on this whole topic that will give you just the boost you need to think through this whole concept. Stay tuned for more soon!
