Financial instability is the number one reason that farms fail. Knowing how to manage your personal and your farm finances can help maintain your financial stability. Financial literacy includes understanding how money work and having the right mindset about money. In the first part of this series, Phil Ross of Texas Small Farmers and Ranchers CBO will guide us through these steps of creating financial freedom: taking control of your money, taking inventory, and creating a spending plan.
P. Wade Ross (also known by many as "Phil") currently serves as CEO of Texas Small Farmers & Ranchers Community-Based Organization, after many years in the role of Education Director. He wears additional hats (no pun intended) as a financial literacy coach and consultant, and he co-owns and manages a grass-fed cattle and composting operation on land that has been in his family since the 1880s.
Texas Small Farmers & Ranchers/CBO is recognized around the state of Texas as a revered voice and education channel for small farmers of color. Mr. Ross also serves on the Board of Directors for Texas Center for Local Foods, is one of the founding members of the Texas Disaster Relief Collaborative, is a member of the NRCS Texas State Advisory Committee, along with numerous collaboratives and coalitions.
This workshop series is part of the Farm Success program, a collaboration between GROW North Texas and Farmers Assisting Returning Military made possible through funding from USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (award # 2021-49400-35628).
