Stress can arise for a variety of reasons and is associated with daily life, the workplace, and family responsibilities. As women in agriculture, we have many roles: business woman, spouse, mother, caregiver, and friend. Finances and organization are major stressors for many individuals, including women in agriculture. So what can we do about it?
As women we need to identify work as well as individual/family needs and goals and plan for them. Our business in agricultures should help us reach our professional as well as personal goals, but that isn´t always the case.
Personal finance guidelines and organizational recommendations provided by Extension Agents at Utah State University can be extremely helpful to women in agriculture as they work towards a successful business in agriculture and positive personal/family life.
Shared in this workshop will be ideas to create success, balance and happiness every day. Learn techniques to organize the workplace and home and at the same time maintain balance with work and family. Learn how to use tools to eliminate chaos, prevent clutter and manage stress. Organize your records with the ‘financial information binder’, set financial goals, create savings and spending plans, manage credit, and invest and plan for the future.
