Meet Mandy B. Anderson

Hi! I’m Mandy. I love coffee dates with great friends (virtual or in-person), books that teach me new skills, YA books that make me feel all the feels, stiletto shoes that are usually not made for walking, and adventures that end with laughter and great memories. I’m married to the man of my dreams, Mr. Nate Anderson. He calls me Beautiful, and I call him Handsome, and on the weekends you can find us working out together at the gym and then having our own brand of fun at home or hanging out with friends.

Professionally, I’m the Chief Creative Officer (CCO) of RAYMA Team, a Coaching & Consulting Company that creates unique solutions for Busy Professionals and Entrepreneurs to effectively connect with people and reach their goals. RAYMA Team is a division of Big Blue Couch® Coaching, LLC. Owned and operated by myself, my bestie – Raychel Perman, and my husband – Nate Anderson.

As a Certified Life Coach and Business Strategist, I provide the tools and accountability you need so you can have a greater impact, make more money, create solutions, and balance your home and work life.

As a Motivational Speaker, I vulnerably share my 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. In 2019 I started the She Who Overcomes Podcast to get this message out to even more people.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the Podcast episodes and blogposts, sip some coffee and scroll through RAYMA Team to learn more about how I can help you, and have a great day!


My Blog

I started my blog in 2011. Back then it was my way of getting comfortable with writing and sharing my thoughts with the world. It’s been nearly a decade now, and I’ve since written and published 2 books, 2 Bible studies, and several guided journals. The blog has changed a lot over the years! In fact, for several years it was blank because I lost everything on it when we decided to only focus on what was then Big Blue Couch Coaching.

My goals now are to provide you with content that encourages you and challenges you to rise up and be who you are meant to be. And maybe give you a laugh here or there, too. You can expect the following categories from me:

Podcast | Self | Work | Faith | Hope | Style & Fun| Cystic Fibrosis Life
