How Did We get to Work in the Cotton Industry

We are so excited here at RuralScope.  We turn 20 years old in 2020.  We are celebrating by sharing 20 stories across 20 months.  These will include highlights, lowlights and learnings.  A unique insight into our development - personal and business for you.  Our aim is to share learnings to support others who live and work across rural Australia.   


This is our tenth story in the series.  It’s all about how we got to work in the Australian cotton industry and what it’s like. 

 

I’m often asked how we got to work in the Cotton industry, what’s it like and is it different to other sectors?  I think these questions are super relevant for others in business as we had no prior experience with Cotton and didn’t know what a boll was (we pronounced it ball) when we first got started.  And it’s fair to say that we didn’t specifically target Cotton as an industry we wanted to work in, now 18 years on we are super glad that our work led us to this fabulous sector of Australian agriculture.

This is our ninth story in the series.  I have always loved reading, watching and learning from others who are successful.  My bedside table always has at least one biography on there.  If you know me well, you likely know I’m a bit of a sticky beak – a nice one – always interested in other people’s lives – both who they are and what they do.  And I’ve turned it into a business practise and one that I think everyone in business should take on.  So here’s what it is…

This is our eighth story in the series.  It’s about the importance of holding regular business check in days.  And how these are essential to growing a profitable and sustainable business.  If you don’t currently work on your business in this way, then I really encourage you to stop right now and run a day like this.  And if you work alone and think you’ve got this sorted please think again as it was and now in our 20th year in business still is one of the best ways we work on the business.  And great changes have always stemmed from these days.  Here's just one example.

This is our seventh story in the series.  It’s about the importance of values to drive success – personally and in business. 

 

For a few years in business – Ok in truth, for the first 5 years we swirled around doing work for clients that asked!   This saw us mainly working in agriculture but also in education, health, economic development, tourism and sport!  And if I am to tell the truth probs a few more sectors as well.  During this time we also facilitated projects in a private prison and a public hospital kitchen!

Clarity Comes before Confidence

Clarity comes before confidence is a simple concept.  Try putting it into practise and you will find that it's not as easy as it first sounds.  Master the simplicity of it and you will be well on your way to building success in both your work and personal lives. Clarity is all about being coherent, understanding and planning what you want to say before you say it. Knowing what your vision is and then taking the steps to get there.  Being clear about who you are and what is important to you, your team, your business, your project etc, means that you will be able to say no to opportunities that present but don't fit with your direction.  This is a deal maker as so many people talk with me about being over loaded and not even having enough time for themselves.  If you are clear about your focus, vision or future then you will have the confidence to say no and to put in place the actions and steps that really matter. Here are 9 tips to help....
