And today, I have a fun interview to share with you. I talked to a friend, John Moody who boasts a background at the Farm to Table legal defense fund, has built a high tunnel on his land, and approaches homesteading with the simple idea that: don’t make it harder than it has to be. He is about to release his book, the frugal homestead, and is an all-around fun guy to talk with!

Operation Independence

Change Your Narrative, Change Your Life

  1. Learn about frame or perspective: This is what those annoying people who love lemonade do.
  2. Define what is really important to your success and frame your personal narrative toward that.
  3. Learn how your behavior impacts those around you - and use that.

Make it a great week.
