“The Girls on the Big Blue Couch” Speaking Duo

Mandy B. Anderson & Raychel Chumley often present together. When they do, they go by the nickname “The Girls on the Big Blue Couch.” As best friends for over 20 years, authors, podcast co-hosts, speakers, entrepreneurs, and co-founders of Big Blue Couch Coaching, there is a magical thing that happens when these two powerhouse women walk on stage and speak. As a result, they have a unique ability to be vulnerable and connect with their audience in a way that is real, raw, and unforgettable.
