Over A Beer 029 - How Not To Advocate

On Episode 029 of the Agriculture Proud Podcast, Ryan Goodman and Carrie Mess continue the Over A Beer series talking about hot topics in agriculture. This week, we’re likely stepping on a few toes and sharing a few tips on how not to advocate. We should start off by saying we're at the bottom of the final pitcher for this series of Over a Beer. We're not recording this episode to tell people how they have to advocate. But there is a wrong way to do it and you can mess things up. Carrie would, she married a Mess (her words, Patrick). Carrie and Ryan share their experiences of being involved for more than a decade, have our work stolen by others and being called bullies by others in the advocacy world. There's room for all of us.  If you're disrespecting anyone in your advocacy in order to promote yourself, you're doing it wrong. And not to leave it all on a sour note, we give a shout out to several advocates who are doing great work in sharing their stories. How Farms Work (YouTube) The Farmer's Life (Twitter) Sara Sheep Lady (Instagram) Debbie Lyons Blythe (Blog, Twitter) Modern Day Farm Chick (Instagram) Jenn Zeller, The South Dakota Cowgirl (Blog, Instagram) Will Gilmer, Gilmer Dairy Farm (Blog, Twitter) Janice Person (Twitter) Jude Capper (Twitter) Janeal Yancy (Facebook) Vance Crowe (Twitter) Don Schindler (Twitter) Thanks to our sponsors (if we had sponsors) – Spotted Cow Beer from New Glarus Brewing for the hydration and to Crawfish Junction for the location for the discussion. Be sure to hop on over to Carrie’s Blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to connect with her.
