What is your story?
Throughout high school I was heavily involved with numerous extracurricular activities while also starting several different ventures. Everything from growing a cow/calf operation to operating a seamless gutter machine. Once in college I knew my passion was being directly involved with production agriculture. Though there have been ups and downs with production agriculture, I continue to persevere and look for opportunities to grow. After college I accepted a full time position as a Farm Manager and Real Estate Salesperson in Norfolk, Neb., with Hertz Farm Management while also maintaining interests in my own operation.
What is your business?
Fish-Christensen Cattle Company
Who is your entrepreneurial inspiration OR biggest hero?
I've had a lot of great entrepreneurial influences in my life, but I would still say my parents are my biggest inspiration. From an early age they instilled values and taught me lessons through their entrepreneurial experiences.
If your story were made into a movie, what actor/actress would portray you and why?
Sam Elliot because he portrays everything that is American.
What advice would you give to a student starting their entrepreneurial journey?
There are a lot of good ideas out there, but if a person doesn't ever act on those ideas (no matter how small) then that person is only a dreamer. Don't be a dreamer, be an entrepreneur.
