Welcome to the Homestead
We are so excited about launching this new adventure. We have been working hard to get the website up and running, put together giveaways for you guys and find the best tools, materials, and information to pack those boxes with. The first box is a perfect example of what we are about here at The Homestead Box. Let me explain.
Skills not Stuff
While we can only ship you physical items (and not brain waves), we are passionate about conveying practical skills to our members. We chose to approach this by curating our boxes around projects. These projects are designed to introduce you to skills that you will need to run a successful homestead. In the end we believe that self-sustainability and self-reliance are skills based lifestyles. It doesn’t matter how many tools you have if you never learn to use them correctly. Some things take time to learn. Let’s put in the time. Some things need the guiding hand of someone that has been there. Let’s ask those people. If we fail to commit to certain concepts and practices, this lifestyle can become difficult. But like putting a fresh edge on a trusty pocket knife, honing your skills can make life much easier.
In every lifestyle, there are certain sets of skills that allow you to grow faster. These are skill sets that may seem unrelated at first, but once we get too far down a path, they seem crucial. Business can seem like the world ofmath and numbers from the outside, but being able to network on personal level can make a or break a business person. The Homestead Box “Intro Box” will start you with an awesome foundation that will expand into almost every other aspect of the homestead. I want to tell you what’s in it, but I can’t. January is not far off. I will see you then.
Until you get your first box, keep learning, keep striving, and keep in touch with us at our YouTube Page
