About Sandy Hansen-Wolff
Visionary. Entrepreneur. Encourager. Saver of struggling businesses.
Shortly after her husband died of leukemia, Sandy Hansen-Wolff, just 30 at the time, quickly learned that his feed-and-seed business was experiencing extreme financial stress from both his absence as well as poor farm markets. She took the helm of a business about which she knew very little and, with the steadfast dedication of employees who pulled together during a heartbreaking and stress-filled time, and customers who stood by the business during its difficult transition, steered AgVenture Feed and Seed Inc. back into thriving sales. She discovered she enjoyed being an enterprising visionary and quickly sought to learn the know-how to successfully reach a goal.
Along the way, Sandy was frequently recognized for her success and leadership, including being named in 2010 as an Enterprising Woman of the Year from Enterprising Women magazine and announced as a finalist for the Good Leader Award in Community Impact, given annually to a Minnesota business leader known for service, character, leadership, and corporate giving. Her story has been featured in numerous publications including Wall Street Journal, Minnesota Business magazine, and Inc. magazine – to name a few.
While continuing to innovate and grow her own business, Sandy’s life’s work now includes helping others achieve their dreams by speaking and working with entrepreneurs, business leaders, women’s groups, private conferences, and more.
“My desire is to use everything I have learned – and many times, the hard way – to help others reach levels of success with more ease than my own path. By sharing, others’ paths are made easier and everyone benefits.”
