Show Notes

We've all been through difficult times, which makes it easy to relate to some of the struggles that author, Dawn Newland, has faced (and overcome). What makes her struggle different and inspiring is the way she has used it to shape her craft. As you listen to this podcast, please prepare to be inspired!!

Dawn Newland and her husband, Wilbur, ranch west of Belle Fourche, South Dakota, on Wyoming and Montana land that has been in the Newland family since 1905.  As an artist, her talents range from leatherwork to oil and watercolor painting. As a rancher, she can rope and drag with the best of the neighbors, face down blizzards and mud to feed the cows, and drive her Friesian-Quarter Horse cross-team to pick up grain.

Who is Cheyenne Wilson?

Cheyenne was fortunate to grow up on her family's working cattle ranch in southeastern Montana. This is where her intense love of horses and cattle began. She also learned to love and respect the land from a very young age. She runs black Angus cattle and raises half-draft horses with her husband and son. Their place is known as the Lazy Six Nine Ranch. Cheyenne, is also an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe. She and her family reside and ranch on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. They also spend time in Montana in the Beartooth Mountains.

Cheyenne strives daily to spread positivity and awareness of modern-day ranching. One of her passions is empowering women involved in agriculture to live life at a higher level. She strives to perpetuate the ever-evolving role of women in agriculture through her blog (The Native Cowgirl), public speaking, photography, and social media outlets.

She loves helping rural entrepreneurs level up in what they are passionate about. This includes updating company branding, amplifying social media platforms, increasing website traffic, one-on-one coaching for business/personal growth, etc.

She has been able to build her business from the ground up earning 7-figures in only three years -- in the middle of nowhere.

She always says, "If I can do this, you can too!"
