Welcome to Crystal Cattle. The story of a small town girl fearlessly going after her dreams. I'm Crystal Blin, farm girl, lipstick junkie, entrepreneur, social media master and social selling leader. 

Why Crystal Cattle? When I started my blog in 2009 I was passionate about telling agriculture's story and single, LOL. I knew one day I would change my last name so Crystal Cattle seemed like the perfect ailas.  

Although I grew up on my family's farm in Canada, college took me south to Kansas State University, and the Midwest has quickly become home. Today and my husband, Jon and I  own and operate JJB Cattle Co., a purebred Hereford and crop farm in northeast Iowa. 

For nearly 10 years I worked in corporate marketing world. However, in 2015 I stumbled into the social selling company Keep Collective. What was supposed to be a hobby led to me leaving the corporate world and becoming one of the top business owners and leaders within Keep. Today, I lead a team of more than 400 women from across the U.S. and Canada and hold the second highest leadership level within the company.

I am passionate about helping women purse their big ideas and find more joy in their lives. I try to live my the Zig Ziglar quote
 “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.

You can find me sharing more of my story on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or my newly released podcast, Squad Life. If you don't want to miss any of the new be sure to sign up for my e-newsletter.

I have enjoyed sharing my stories and experiences with a wide range of audiences, love building relationships with others, and can not wait to connect with you.
