Tim, thank you for imparting you’re knowledge and selflessly providing so many valuable resources. You have given me a firm kick in the butt as I embark on my dream of opting out of the rat race and producing my own, natural, whole food, straight from the Earth.

%K.O.% ,

I have finally done it - I have now listened to every episode.

I have listened to every episode and a handful of them multiple times. My goal is to leave the safety of a traditional job and income and spend all my time on the 40 Acres we recently bought. Woven throughout every podcast is the idea that 80% of your time is spent on some form of marketing. No one else elegantly weaves this into the culture like Tim does.

So important.
Thank you,
