OFI 1673: How To Immediately Apply Skills Learned In High School | FFA SAE Edition | Jon McNees | Clarinda High School FFA | Re-Cap Episode
On tomorrow's episode of the Off-Farm Income Podcast, we are featuring a gentleman who has spent his career running his own excavation business. We will be highlighting what it took for him to move his business from Michigan to Texas.
This interview reminded me of another great guest who had come on the show back in 2018. Back then, Jon McNees was an FFA student. He had been working his father's excavation business for years, and he was progressively getting more and more responsibility. What I loved about the interview with Jon, is that he did not just think it was his birthright to work in that company. Even in high school he was doing whatever he could to add value to the company. He was able to do this through his participation in the FFA and by learning as much as he could about soils.
Bringing back this interview with Jon is the perfect lead in, to tomorrow's ag business episode.
