Building your alpaca business 43

Here is a home for alpaca people everywhere – a place to grow and connect, to become confident and fulfilled owners of happy and healthy alpacas.

Wouldn’t it be nice if it was possible to combine keeping our alpacas and running a business, or even running a business keeping alpacas? The good news is that it can be done with thought, planning and application. In this episode, we hear more from Joe Phelan of K2 Alpacas, based just outside of Dublin.

All it requires is for you to do more of the right things, less of the wrong things, and to be in the right place at the right time – so that’s easy then.

Having the right approach both in terms of mindset and focus will give you a good start and help you to build in a way that is sustainable. Joe seems to have found an excellent approach that works for him and I believe will be beneficial for many of us. I have learnt a lot from our conversations and am still working out how to do apply it to my own setting. I hope you find it beneficial too.

Always learning and seeking to grow in confidence. Start where you are – be clear where you want to go – and find some fellow travellers. Alpacas are amazing and so are alpaca people.
