That Cowboy Gal: Interview with Kailey Klein
Show Notes

In this podcast, Cheyenne interviews wearable art maker, Kailey Klein. 

Kailey is a western creative, cowboy gal, mama, and ranch wife.  She loves old turquoise, tooled leather, tacos, and good cow ponies -- and, of course, her business Magpie West Leather Co.

Magpie West Leather Co. was born in a little ranch house on the outskirts of a Oregon college town. Her working cowboy boyfriend (now husband) brought home some leather scraps and a rose stamp after work one day and said, "here, you're an artist, I thought you'd like this".  A couple of hours later, she had built her first set of spur straps. It was the useful outlet for her artwork that she'd been seeking for years! She said that once she'd created her first purse, she was hooked!!

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!"
