“I’ve been very fortunate to have a lot of women who are mentors. Primarily farm women who just wanted to share their stories and to connect with me.” –Sara Wyant

Sara grew up on a farm near Marengo, Iowa, and was encouraged by her family to try new things. “It wasn’t about thinking of things you couldn’t do. It was like, why not try it and see if you can?” she says. She has received numerous awards, including an Oscar in Agriculture, for her work in communications and agriculture, and is highly respected in the industry. Sara talks with host Sara Steever about listening, learning and leading.
