Tangaroa Walker I am a dairy farmer and I love what I do

I want to share with you what I do, how I do it and why I do it. You will get a 360 degree view of farming and I will show you how I was able to achieve six figures by the time I was 21 years old. I’ve never read a book in my life, and only went to school to play rugby. Life is not about what you know so you can answer any question or solve any task, it’s about having the ability and the support networks to excel in all tasks and answer all questions. Networking has been the key to my success. You do not get anywhere fast by yourself. But with the support of others you will have a firm knowledge base to make good decisions and choices. I am a builder, plumber, electrician, engineer, truck driver, vet, accountant, sportsman, employer, employee, Primary ITO trainee, farmer, family man and have also graduated from the school of hard knocks. Support this amazing industry and we will support you! We need skilled young professionals! Get along to BrightSIDE so you can learn to be successful too.
