Recap of the Year with AdvancingAg

Unbelievable, a year has passed and how life has changed during this mentorship. When I started this journey I didn’t expect people to stop me in a restaurant to talk about my mentorship or that they read about me in the Western Producer.

The good news is that we have control over how we choose to approach conflict and how we perceive conflict.
