Aaron’s daughter was the head wrangler at 7 Lazy P Ranch in the Bob Marshall wilderness of Montana a few years ago. While visiting, they had some unusual events that helped Aaron learn that even things that “never happen” do indeed happen sometimes.
Whenever we go out to do a job, it’s vital to have the right gear and training to keep you going down the right path. We don’t want to be put into a position that could have been prevented through planning instead of doing things halfway. We need to make sure that we have the right tools and gear. It doesn’t have to be brand new, but the right stuff.
Keep looking up, and I’ll keep looking out! –Aaron Young
Welcome to The Lookout Society Podcast, where Aaron shares a story from his life, then connects it with a business principle to pass on so it can help somebody else going down his or her path as a contributing member to society. As an added bonus he shares wonderful gems of Oregonian knowledge from his home state and weaves the passion he has for the community he lives in as an invitation for others to visit the Pacific Northwest.
LESSON FOR THE DAY
Make sure that you have the right gear and tools to help you achieve your goal.

ABOUT THE SHOW NOTES
Each of The Lookout Society show notes are written by Natalie C. Martin LEARN A LITTLE ABOUT NATALIE:
A life-long learner and unashamed history nerd, Natalie is a certified teacher in secondary education history and English turned stay at home mom. She is the mother of four energetic children all two years apart from 8 to 2 and recently celebrated her 11th wedding anniversary with the only boyfriend she ever had. After the kiddies are put to bed, she writes show notes as she continues to ignite her passion for writing and editing, fact checking and learning to make the world wide web a more educated place. When we learn that more gets accomplished when we replace “can’t” with “can” so many possibilities are opened to us. In the words of Rosie the Riveter, “We can do it!”
