Livestock Operations Workbook Questions to Ask Before Starting a Livestock Operation
This workbook provides several questions that should be asked before starting a tribal livestock operation. Even if you are not intending to start for a while, this workbook can be used to start developing your plan. Each question is accompanied by some explanation and then provides a place to write down your plan and also, what is your next step to develop your plan further. We have also included an example to help you formulate your own answers.
It is important to remember that this is your plan and should work for you. You do not need to have all the answers now. Use the space to write down what you already know and also the space for next steps to list what you need to find out and how you will take your next step.
Are You Ready to Start a Business on the Reservation? Tribal Checklist
Starting a new business can be challenging and takes a lot of time and energy. Even more challenging if you are located on a remote reservation. Before you consider starting a new business, you should ask yourself some questions about your personal situation. Distractions or issues in your personal life can make it harder to focus on starting your business.
