Tonight I am featuring Lisa and Doug Burnworth, a wonderful couple who operate a small dairy operation and Harvest Adventures. Doug has been a farmer all of his life and is a delight to be around. Doug smiles all the time and has a great realistic outlook on life. Like other farmers he problem solves and fixes things.
Lisa was in the banking business and now a farmer's wife and entrepreneur takes in information, researches, takes notes and runs numbers like no one I have ever seen. The woman is a genius and I am sure could start any business she wanted to and be successful.
The best things about this couple is they are some of the most giving and genuine people we know. They would do anything for anyone. They are always home and welcome visitors. We have often stopped after the sun has gone down and sat on their front porch swing talking about life. The best part is you can share your dreams and get realistic advice.
She also has answered many questions business and tax related, for free. Just this evening she was giving me advice on employees collecting unemployment and the documentation that we should keep. I believe that it was useful information that I could have waited two hours on the phone for a government employee to answer or have spent $150.08 to have an accountant answer it. Thanks Lisa!
