One Year In: A Letter To Me

WOOHOO – Celebrate those good times, right?! It’s so hard to believe that this week marks the one year mark of launching my business. It’s been a fast, furious and fun year – with lots of learning curves built in. Learning curves not only from a business perspective, but I’d say even more from a personal view. 

The other day I heard that Brad Paisley song, “Letter to Me” and it had me thinking about this past year and my whole life, really. There are so many instances where diving into the “unknown” of a new adventure has left me a bit freaked out.

Will I fail? Will I succeed? How is this going to go? Will I know what to do or say?

What It’s Like to Have a Crazy Mom

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.

Recent Client Meetings Offer a Walk Down Memory Lane

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.
