Following the Yellow Brick Road

Yep  – that was me, minus Toto and the rest of the gang I was off to Kansas  !  I wasn’t there in search of Oz and I didn’t find any wizards.    I did though meet some amazing people and dig up a few local ghosts.

As part of my role with the FarmOn and Green Hectares Foundations I have been trained in Enterprise Facilitation.     What this means is that basically I am a business coach available to help people find the resources and support they need to create a successful business.

Every year Enterprise Facilitators from all over the world gather to share their experiences and learn new skills related to their profession and the annual Fall Forum.    Thanks to Green Hectares I was able to travel to Atchison, Kansas where  we were hosted by the NEKEF group.

Reported to be the Most Haunted Town in Kansas, Atchison is a very interesting old town along the Missouri River about 45minutes North of Kansas City.      As part of the Forum we met with the founder of Enterprise Facilitation, Ernesto Sirolli and listened to him speak at the beautiful Benedictine College.

Old train Engine, Atchison was along the railway line which is why it was such a well developed town

Now that I am home it is time to get back to ranching.     We are getting ready to wean calves and doing those odd jobs that always seem to pile up in the fall.    Of course one of those projects includes getting our website updated and doing a bit more blogging !

I hope everyone has had a great summer and that each of you found some time to follow your own yellow brick road for a holiday before the snow flies !

Cheers,

Jen
