Oops, excuse me, I must have had a typo in the title, I meant to say: What It’s Like to Have a CRAZY GOOD Mom. 🙂 Forgive me, I’m in marketing, I have to write headlines to attract attention, so now that you’re here, you might as well read on, right? I am laughing to myself because I’m from a small town and I live in a small town, so the people who know my mom were probably confused by the blog title. As far as they have always known, Sandy Frey is a really GREAT person. Well, I have some news for you! She most definitely is! Plus, I like that I have likely scared my mom a little with the post title. Since she is a CRAZY GOOD mom, she reads all of my content and is probably one of my biggest fans. She also is the source of my weird & clever sense of humor. 🙂 Sorry that I startled all of you, but please read on, I actually do get to some good stuff.

I love meeting with clients and helping them figure out ways to be more efficient in their business. I find it exhilarating to brainstorm ideas with business owners about what success can look like for them – and letting them dream a little, knowing that anything is attainable when they put their minds to work.
Oftentimes, an initial client consult might have questions like this in it:
- What does it look like to be wildly successful?
- Thinking about success, what’s that look like for you/your business in three years? How about five years?
- What’s part of your business do you absolutely love?
My work continues to bring me such a feeling of joy as I help small businesses navigate their marketing & business plans! Recently, I’ve been hitting the highways of Nebraska to meet up with clients for one-on-one assistance, many of those trips are up into the north central part of the state. On each drive, I love the quiet time and walk down memory lane it provides to me. That part of Nebraska has a special meaning to me because growing up, my dad had a custom hay business and I was one of his “hired” hands. We grew up around Albion, Nebraska and he had quite a few customers there, but as his business grew, he expanded and moved into the Clearwater, Ewing, Emmet, Bassett & Atkinson areas. From alfalfa to prairie hay, he loved the custom hay business and I loved getting to spend time working alongside him. As I drive into that area of Nebraska, I can feel my heart grow fond as I take in the simple beauty of a growing hay meadow on my drives. Some hay meadows are waiting to be cut and some are filled full of fresh round bales, a sign of a hard day’s work. It’s beautiful to see Mother Nature do it’s thing to provide a bountiful crop. During my summers in those areas, we were fortunate to work with some of the nicest people and I know that it’s where my passion for nature and agriculture developed.

It’s hard to believe we are on month SIX in 2019. How did that happen? I feel like this year is flying by, but I think that’s how it always seems to go because time flies when you’re having fun, right?! Between all of the roles we play as a parent, spouse, career-person, friend, volunteer, etc, we seem to always be busy and on-the-go! This post is a challenge for you to take time on a little reflection of how far you’ve come this year. Continue reading → 2019 Goal Check-in: Reflect. Celebrate. Focus.
I have always been the outdoorsy type, loved growing up on a farm & exploring nature. A few years ago, my sister & her significant other introduced me to hiking while in Colorado & I’ve been hooked ever since. Recently, on a hike up Camelback Mountain in Arizona with my husband, Brandon, it made me think about how hiking is like life.
When I ask clients about their biggest struggles when it comes to social media, the answer is often the same:
“It’s hard to come up with fresh content in social media.”
“I can’t seem to find the time to commit and not sure what type of information to post.”
“I watch other businesses do a fantastic job with their social media, but then I struggle.” Continue reading → Create an Engaging Social Media Plan
