The project addressed unique financial and human risks faced
by producers marketing value-added products through direct marketing,
processing and agritourism. A total of 216 Tennessee producers received training through six Quicken®
workshops and seven QuickBooks® workshops on how to keep records to aid them in making financial management decisions and through five Real
Colors® workshops on how to implement new communication skills to improve interpersonal, family and business relationships. Twenty-seven of the recordkeeping workshop participants received additional one-on-one technical assistance and training with their individual records.
and QuickBooks® workshop participants learned how to record,
categorize and analyze financial information to help them to
track revenue and expenses and evaluate farm profitability and cash
flow. Upon workshop completion, several producers requested assistance in using Quicken® and QuickBooks® to set up their farm books
in the software, enter transactions for their accounts and generate
reports that track cash flow and income and expenses.
Colors® workshop participants learned how to understand human
behavior and improve empathy, communication and teamwork by exploring
temperament styles. Real Colors® participants learned skills
needed to handle challenges often faced in working with family members,
managing employees, and developing and maintaining business
