  • You spend hours in your inbox and you’re missing important calls, emails, and follow-ups.

  • You’re having trouble keeping organized, on task, and on-schedule.

A letter from Mary Elaine and Brett Baker:

Dear friend,

Our hope is that you are on this page not just to learn more about Patriot Advantage, but also and more importantly about who we are as individuals. We’re all familiar with the reality of modern life where the technology that makes us so interconnected also makes us feel isolated. Artificial intelligence is enabling machines to perform more and more complicated tasks, and consumers want goods and services at the speed of lightning, conveniences that come at a higher price than what’s on the tag.

We intended from the inception of PA to make sure we never let keeping up with this fast-spinning world take precedence over the importance of establishing close and valued relationships. To put it simply, we believe that values and people matter. We spend an average of a third of our lifetime working. Arguably, entrepreneurs spend more than that. Considering so much of our life is spent at work, we believe that time spent making personal connections will drive success – and give it meaning – every bit as much as getting the job done efficiently and well.

What we have achieved at PA, and strive to maintain, is an experience that combines the convenience of remote work with a culture that fosters empathy, respect, and a true investment in each other. Emotional intelligence, a true servant’s heart, and a genuine desire to see others succeed in life is something AI will never be able to touch.

What keeps us motivated each day are the stories of the relationships being built – stories of the hard work, skill, and attention that our team members give selflessly to make each entrepreneur feel cared for and valued in our hands, and stories of military spouses supporting their families and each other while investing in their entrepreneurs’ success.

We think matching people who know what it means to serve with people who know what it means to create doesn’t just make for better business, it makes for better lives. Will you join us on our journey? Our hope is that you will.

In service,

Mary Elaine and Brett

Farm Talk with Paul Ward. Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture. Mary Maranville, guest.

Welcome to another edition of Farm Talk!  On today’s show, Paul is joined by Mary Maranville, Founder and CEO of SEEAG (Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture).  Mary tell us what SEEAG is all about, the inspiration behind it, and what her “ah-ha!” moment was.

Farming is such an important part of our lives, and yet many kids don’t know much about it, or how it all works.  SEEAG’s mission is to educate students in the greater community about the farm origins of their food, and agriculture’s contribution to our nutritional well-being.

SEEAG has many wonderful programs that promote agriculture awareness, hands-on learning opportunities, career pathways, farm days, and so much more!

Tune in for a wonderfully interesting interview & prepare to be inspired!

About SEEAG:

Since 2008, SEEAG has impacted the lives of over 40,000 students 100% free of charge. I am very proud of what we have accomplished since SEEAG was founded, all in accordance with our mission to educate students about the farm origins of their food from field-to-table while connecting them to the farmland in their own backyards.

We constantly strive to improve our curriculum and programs; to provide cutting-edge, reality-based education and to widen our reach within the community to impact the lives of children, youth and adults in meaningful, long-lasting ways.

In many cases our farm field trips to Petty Ranch provide young children with their first opportunity to pick a piece of fruit with their own hands. You only need to see the smiles on their faces and hear their laughter as they run around the orchard picking lemons, oranges and tangerines to understand the positive impact farm visits and outdoor education have on their lives. Experiential learning not only positively affects their education experience, it creates memories that will last a lifetime.

In an effort to reach and educate more community members about local agriculture, SEEAG founded Ventura County Farm Day in 2013, which has grown into a community-wide annual event for the entire family. In 2018, 20 farms and thousands attendees participated in open house educational farm tours to celebrate the hands and lands that feed us.

About Mary Maranville:

Mary Maranville founded Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG) in 2008.

“Even with California’s rich agricultural heritage, children don’t make the connection between the acres of farmland around them to the food on their tables. SEEAG’s education programs help make that connection; providing kids with field trips to local farms brings the message home even further.

My lineage is filled with multi-generational farmers. Being raised on a dairy farm in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York was such a privilege. At the same time I had no idea about the importance of my father’s work, putting food on household tables. When I came to Ventura County 20 years ago and saw the bounty of local agriculture and farms it inspired me. In 2008 I witnessed a local elementary school farm field trip in Santa Paula. Then and there I knew I could make a difference educating school children about the farm origins of their food and agriculture. Now, after providing over 40,000 school children with free field trips to local farms, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think and appreciate my father. He loved growing things and providing food for families.

SEEAG is dedicated to my father and was founded to create agricultural ambassadors with the hope they will help preserve family farms around with world.

I hope you are inspired by SEEAG’s mission. Thank you.”

Farm Talk with Paul Ward. Quick thinking saves a ranch on a fiery Halloween night!

In today’s show, Paul tells us about the fiery Halloween that was experienced in Ventura County & surrounding areas this year.  The “Easy” fire, the “Getty fire, and the “Maria” fire, all happened on, or near, Halloween.  The Easy fire was in Simi Valley, the Getty fire was near the Getty museum in Los Angeles, and the Maria fire started on a mountaintop between the city of Santa Paula and the township of Somis.

Paul talks specifically about the Maria fire, how it affected an area of Somis where he has a ranch property for sale, and explains the reasons why that ranch is still standing today.

Tune in and learn how a quick-thinking ranch hand and a 15,000 gallon cistern helped keep this ranch, and those surrounding it, from burning down!  A fascinating & incredible story!

Farm Talk with Paul Ward – Seller Financing Is Doable!

In today’s Farm Talk show, Paul discusses seller financing and tells us why it is doable. People ask Paul all the time about seller financing and more often than not, it’s not considered an option.  Paul shares a great story with us about a current listing he has where farm financing is not an option due to the orchard being reliant to county water, which is very expensive.  If the orchard didn’t exist, it would not be planted today.  For this particular property, the water costs eat into any profits.

Paul explains the challenges for the different loans that are possibilities with this kind of property.  In the case of this property, a nextdoor neighbor has made an offer, but has requested some seller financing for 5 years, which Paul explains could benefit both the seller, and the buyer.

Tune in and learn what situations make seller financing desirable.

This is show is full of great information that is vital to know when purchasing, or selling, a ranch property.  Don’t miss it!
