We are just going to say it… building a business is hard! Solopreneur, small business owner, partnership, business professional, doesn’t matter. It will take everything you’ve got to build your dream. But you don’t have to go it alone! We want to partner with you to make it happen.
But before we get too far, we need to tell you something super important.
We aren’t your gurus. We don't peddle a "one-size-fits-all" answer to success and happiness. We won’t blow a lot of hot air or waste your time with empty motivational phrases that mean zilch.
What we will do is provide the ONE thing that can change your future. Coaching, accountability, and guidance for the long-haul. It’s a proven method for results! And, we promise to be your guides through the wild and crazy dance that is “business building.” When you partner with RAYMA Team you will find solutions.
And just in case you're thinking, "I'm not building a business do you have something for me?" Don't worry, Boo. We got you, too. Grab a cup of coffee. Sit back. Scroll a bit. And, let’s get acquainted.
Like all the brave men and women carrying the torch of “Entrepreneur” before us, we too have a story that led us to launching this company.
RAYMA Team didn't just pop out of the air one day. I mean the name did just drop into Mandy's head when she was running on the treadmill. But, in all seriousness it took years of digging ditches and laying the groundwork to get us here. It's a story full of hopes and dreams with mountain top experiences and crushing failures. There’s even a bit of scandal! It’s blockbuster material!
I wish we had the time to tell you all of it. Every nitty gritty detail. But we know you are busy running your business and building your dream life (and if you're not, we can help!) so we will give you the cliffs notes version…
Once upon a time in the land of 2012, there were three best friends who loved a blue couch very much. It wasn’t just an old piece of furniture, it was a magical place where all three of them could snuggle into its faded cushions and laugh, cry, eat, and dream together. The couch was there for them in the good times, the bad times, and all the in-between times.
One night, a couple years after finding this much-loved couch, an idea transpired. Two of the besties, drunk on wine and revenge, decided to take back their stolen dreams and create something new. That night, Big Blue Couch® Coaching, LLC was born. (aka RAYMA Team's parent company!) And, the rest as they say, is history…
We know you are dying to meet the women who started such a scandal 😉 and the man who encouraged them from the very beginning.

Our name, RAYMA, is not only a combination of Raychel and Mandy’s names (aka their Bestie Couple Name) but also an acronym for the five characteristics all business owners need.
Resiliency is the ability to bounce back quickly after adversity. Every single person needs to learn how to be more resilient. When life knocks you down you must know how to get back up again. Strength & flexibility are vital when you are building a business and designing your dream life.
Authenticity is being true to your own unique self. It’s a genuineness that shines through and attracts others. Discovering who you are will make you a confident decision maker and trustworthy leader. Will the real you please stand up? Because we need you.
Saying yes to the opportunities that spark passion, curiosity, and joy is what life is all about! All your life you’ve been told what you cannot do. It’s time to say “Yes, I can. Watch me.”
Motivation is all about giving yourself a reason to act. You can borrow motivation from others; but, at the end of the day you’ve got to master the skill to motivate yourself when no one else is looking. Staying motivated is an inside job.
You get this one life- make sure you are assertive in the right way with the right things. When carefully crafted, assertiveness is a necessary quality all leaders need to embrace. True assertiveness is not pushy, domineering, or rude. It’s positive, confident, and self-assured. Assertive people get things done and inspire others to do the same.
