Scandia, MN – On a fateful trip to the Laughing Water Guest Ranch, Kelly Vaughan would meet Jim Gravelle, and change her life forever.
Electric fencing for livestock is a psychological barrier. It keeps the livestock safe and protected within the area they are confined to.
Today, Kelly Vaughan is the owner of JAG Products, Inc. manufacturers of unique insulators for electric fencing used in the containment of livestock.
“I went from never expecting in a million years to be an entrepreneur to now I've been one for 20 years,” says Kelly. “There are a lot of ups and downs., but at the end of the day, running your own business, being an entrepreneur, is a marathon, never a sprint.”
“You're the one with the vision, you're the one that knows this is the road we're going down, no matter how many people try to take you down a different road,” says Kelly. “You develop an intuition and you learn to trust your instinct.”
There’s a big difference between an “entrepreneur” and an entrepreneurial spirit. That’s why Kelly is transitioning toward using her experience to mentor other fledgling entrepreneurs.
“When I look back now versus then, the Kelly then versus the Kelly now, that's what drives my passion to help these other entrepreneurs, because I've been there, I know that feeling, I know that scariness. I know that fear. Fear can be so debilitating. The only way to combat it is to take that very first scary step.”
