Cody and Deanna Sand – Inspiration for Making Change and Being Happy


I’m sharing these series because I think that Cody and Deanna Sand can inspire all of us to think about how we approach change. Here they describe the steps they took to move from $20,000 in debt to no debt (except for some new land they purchased) and making a profit in just a few short years. We hope it gives you some good ideas!

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
