Charlie’s guest for this episode is business development guru Adam Gibson. Adam Gibson grew up on a small bush block in SE Qld, and over the next 35 years owned a gym, competed in body building competitions, mentored natural health business and ‘went to the edge’ before finding himself back on the land and knee deep in bringing together the vital components of farmers, skills, land and capital investment.
Adam grew up on small bush block in SE Qld | First foray into entrepreneurship was selling chicken manure from a local poultry shed | Adam bought a gym with his father when he left school. It was a passion project more than a sound financial plan | He was Natural Junior Mr Australia in 1992 | Adam is a strong believer in the essential alignment of one’s work with their passion and ‘genius’ | Attending a Landmark forum course changed his life. It made him understand that he had a choice to change his life or continue on his current path | Adam started a Natural Health business coaching and mentoring program to help practitioners develop entrepreneurial skills in their businesses | He found them to be passionate but not business minded and he helped them focus on value not volume | Diet is an essential component in health, and no matter what health modality practitioner he helped, the first step is to focus on the patients diet | One of Adams focus’s now is to be able to provide fresh nutritious food to his kids | When Adam found his way into the regenerative agriculture world he was interested to find that there was little cohesion and coordination of all the moving parts, and decided to use his business coaching skills to help pull together some of the threads to connect farms, farmers, skills and investors | He has worked with Cultivate Farms to achieve this.
