The power of these videos is in Rob’s personal experience taken from his travels across the globe. All of the videos use real life examples, provide guidelines and checklists to get started and finish with advice on actions to take for your farm and family.

“If you don’t do something within the first 30 seconds of watching these videos, things will never change.”
