Our Guest speaker Elaine Froese from Manitoba is a professional speaker, writer, and coach who specializes in helping farm families work through issues surrounding succession, business or that family favourite – communication.

Elaine Froese will talk about Embracing change on the farm........Living an Intentional Life

Balance in a Complex World
Folks are tired and overloaded. They think self care is selfish. Too many roles and too little time. Where did the fun go? Elaine is an active farm partner with off-farm demands, just like you. She’s experienced a serious health issue, which makes her passionate and practical about being intentional, not “busy” and she shares her story and strategies for living a balanced life in this presentation.

Session Solutions:
Learn to identify your 6 core roles and the passions that drive you.
Embrace simple ways to be intentionally self-renewing
Enlist family members to share the load
Decrease your demands... what needs to be dropped?
Adopt energy boosters... what things give you energy?
Create a new storyboard for your life to remind you of the next steps
Take care of you, people are your farm business’s most important asset.

Elaine Froese hates it when people say “she must be busy.” As a certified coach from the Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara, Elaine has amazing strategies for mapping out a great way to live intentionally and make conscious choices. She removed “all hurriedness from her life” after a serious bout of post-partum depression. Her empathy for mental health is widely appreciated by her audiences as she confronts the true challenge of self care which is not selfish. As a depression survivor, she places a high priority on staying healthy.

Elaine has been writing and speaking about balanced living in a complex world since 1987.

We will have a wonderful lunch and after lunch their will be a Line dance demonstration by Jannie van Roekel

In the afternoon Elaine will talk to us about Farming's In-Law factor and Finding Fairness in Farm transition

So come out and bring a family member or a friend and join us for this very special and interesting meeting.
