Sandy Hansen-Wolff has spent her entire career as a business leader and entrepreneur. Sandy started her speaking, coaching, and consulting business over a decade ago. In this role, she works across industries to partner with leaders and business owners to create and execute high-level strategy and aligned actions. She was thrust into entrepreneurship when widowed at a young age. Although always an entrepreneur at heart, Sandy assumed ownership of her late husband’s company in 2003 upon his death and began sharing her story of crisis leadership and overcoming tragedy. She has worked for nearly two decades in agribusiness ownership of AgVenture Feed & Seed Inc. and successfully transitioned her company to new ownership in December of 2020.
Sandy now spends her time helping other companies scale through her leadership coaching, speaking, and consulting business. She is a certified executive coach to many brilliant business leaders and facilitates monthly mastermind peer groups of business leaders. Sandy speaks to groups large and small on topics of pricing, negotiation, business success/scaling strategies, employee engagement, launching new ventures as well as personal strategies for aligning heart-based leadership to profits. She also serves on boards, is a volunteer wish granter for MakeAWish as well as many other community initiatives. As a serial entrepreneur, Sandy launched New Heritage Feed Co. in 2018 –an e-commerce and distributed specialty feed company focusing on the inclusion of premium essential oils and various nutrient enhanced additives for animal food. This company is run by key leaders so that she can maintain her focus on coaching and consulting work.
Sandy and her husband Terry live in the Richmond, MN area on the Horseshoe Chain of Lakes with their cat Lily. She is a stepmom to her two grown twin daughters Holly & Hannah. She is most passionate about helping other entrepreneurs and leaders elevate their success to reach profits and scale in a quicker fashion than she experienced learning on her own.
