INTRODUCING ANNA LINK!
As an entrepreneur, I really appreciate people who go out and seize opportunities. Actually, people who create their own opportunities are the ones that impress me most of all.
Our guest today, Anna Link, did just that, and that is how she wound up being on this show. Anna reached out to me and another agricultural podcast host, Rob Sharkey, on Twitter and requested to be a podcast guest. I had her send me an email and let me know what she has been doing in the FFA, and it was a no-brainer. I booked her on the show right away.
Creating her own opportunities seems to be a character trait of Anna's, as requesting to be a guest on this show is certainly not the only time that she has done this. Anna raises Hereford hogs, and she does so because they are so underrepresented in the show pig world. But she did not stop there. She started a Facebook group for people with Hereford hogs in Missouri. That group has grown and now has spread across state lines.
Anna also took the initiative to be part of the 4H as well as the FFA, as her parents were not pushing her to go that direction, she lives in town and does not have a farm. Those efforts have led her in a good direction though, and she found herself serving as her chapter's president as well as her area's reporter.
Enjoy this episode with this exciting young student.
