Meet Mandy B. Anderson

Hi, I’m Mandy B. Anderson! I Co-Founded a company with my Bestie in 2014 called Big Blue Couch® Coaching. It’s a life and business coaching company dedicated to helping people transform their relationships, careers, and lives. I’m a wife, a Coach, a Speaker, and the Author of the book that inspired my podcast – She Who Overcomes: Rising Out of the Ashes of Your Circumstances. I love coffee and I’m training to run my first half-marathon. Oh – and did I mention that I’m doing all of this while overcoming a life threatening illness called Cystic Fibrosis? Well, it’s true! And hey, if I can rise up, so you can you!

The number one question I am asked by the people I meet in person and online is, “How do you overcome _______.” They fill in the blank with things like fear, sadness, despair, tragedy, health challenges, low self-esteem, financial struggles, sickness, relationships problems, etc. Every week someone wants the answer to that question. And this is what I tell them: You overcome one small, consistent step at a time. You can be an Overcomer in every situation that you face. It’s never too late to start becoming the person you dream of being! It is my honor to partner with them and help them get there.

Much love,



Mandy B. Anderson is the CEO and Co-Founder of Big Blue Couch® Coaching, LLC. As a Certified Life & Business Coach, she helps people overcome negative mindsets, get better results with weekly accountability, turn their dreams into reality, and grow a deeper faith. She is also a Speaker and Author who vulnerably shares her story of overcoming the victim mindset of living with Cystic Fibrosis, as well as other deep losses and mistakes in life, to help encourage others to courageously live their lives to the fullest. She is a gifted encourager, an innovative business woman with a knack for product development, and a genuinely positive person. Mandy lives in North Dakota with her husband, Nate.

PERSONAL BIO:Mandy has been married to the man of her dreams for over a decade and a half. They live in North Dakota, and even though she has been a North Dakota girl her entire life, she only recently discovered a renewed appreciation of this beautiful state.

In her personal time, she loves coffee dates with great friends (virtual or in-person), books that teach her new skills, YA books that make her feel all the feels, and adventures that end with laughter and great memories. She also loves running and working out with her personal trainer to strengthen herself both physically and mentally.

Mandy is currently pushing herself way outside her comfort zone by writing her first fiction book. Based on a true story, it will be a raw look into the journey of learning to live a life of vulnerability and authenticity. It’s only through vulnerability that healing from the deep hurts of past relationships can take place. It’s only through vulnerability that a marriage can be healed. It’s only through vulnerability that forgiveness can happen. It’s only through vulnerability that broken hearts can be mended after deep loss. As Brené Brown says, “Vulnerability is our most accurate measurement of courage. If we are going to find our way back to each other, vulnerability is going to be that path.”
