President and Owner Travel TravelFounding Member | 11.30.2015

Cindy Tyo

originally from Argyle, MN, moved to the Fargo-Moorhead area after high school, and originally planned to build a career in the medical field. But by the age of 19, after working in a hotel and travel agency in the area, she realized her passion was travel. Beginning in the mid-1980s, Tyo worked as a travel agency manager in Crookston, MN, and Fargo-Moorhead. Tyo then spent several years in Los Angeles, CA, before returning to Fargo – first to manage her current agency, then becoming the agency’s owner in 2003.

Cindy has found herself in elite and rarified company, as one of the only people ever to win both of Travel Leaders’ highest honors: Associate of the Year and The Golden Legacy Award. The Golden Legacy Award ranks as the single highest honor any Travel Leaders Associate may receive and celebrates the award winner’s lifetime career achievements.

How does the reality of your job differ from people’s perception of it?
Because I travel the world for work: I’m just on vacation. In some ways it makes sense, as I truly love what I do, but I’m putting in 12-14 hour days in meeting rooms and on busses when I travel for work, like most people who travel for work. I just so happen to be having my meetings in Cancun or Prague! 

What’s your “why”?
The moment I see everything I love about travel in someone else’s expression for the first time. Like my son when he got done bungee jumping for the first time in New Zealand to observing the transformation of a client as they conquer their fear of heights to go zip lining in Costa Rica.  The knowledge and experience gained, and the doors opened through travel is priceless.

Founder Advertise Edge | Chezy | Do Tell

Joe is from St. Paul, Minnesota. He attended Minnesota State University Moorhead studying finance & marketing. Joe was very active on campus as a football player and part of many student organizations. He racked up 6 internships for various positions by his junior year which became boring to him so he started Advertise Edge in 2017. 

“Advertise Edge is a full-service Video Production Company with a strong belief in telling your story through the use of video marketing. We may be based in Fargo, North Dakota but we are ready to travel and always have our passports in hand. Through our creative process, we will work hard to build your brand and elevate your message to the right audience. We don’t want to see you waste your marketing dollars on stock videos and basic ideas. Instead, we want to help you stand out. We want to tell your story in a meaningful way using video production services to create a following. It’s our job to bring the story to life and to keep your audience engaged. We help businesses communicate authentically and effectively through video.”

Joe holds many roles within Advertise Edge but his main responsibility is building a culture where creativity thrives.

Sister company, Chezy was born in 2020 to fill a void for small businesses with high-quality videos but at a fraction of the price. Chezy is a national creative services company providing businesses with high-quality video and photography work at a flat rate. Chezy was created to deliver reliable and affordable creative content to any business.

DoTell was founded in 2022. DoTell is a flexible video marketing solution that works with your marketing agency. “At DoTell, we never work directly with a business needing video marketing. Our mission is to help small agencies provide quality and efficient video marketing content for their clients.”

Founder and Owner Beyond MarketingEXECUTIVE Sponsor Member | Member Since 12.03.2020

Cassie Temple

I’m going to tell you a little story about how Beyond Marketing came to be. It was, quite literally, an accident. In 2019 I was at Thai Orchid (YUM, right?) in Moorhead with a committee for the Moorhead Businesses Association. I was already managing my friend’s Facebook business page for fun + a little creativity that I had been missing. A friend of mine was at this same meeting (Hi, Cindy) and we got talking about what I was doing for my other friend’s Facebook page. She asked if I would meet with one of her company’s board of directors to take on their social media. I almost said no. Imposter syndrome was alive + well. But, I enjoy torture so I said yes and put myself in a very uncomfortable situation. I’ve been handling their socials for 2+ years and it’s the best decision (in business, my husband and daughter are pretty cool) I’ve made. From there, two clients turned to four. Then Covid hit and four turned to seven. And it hasn’t stopped…I’m so grateful to my clients for trusting me to tell their stories, show off their brand, and display their work. I’m biased – but I have the absolute best clients. I am so glad you’re here and I’m looking forward to meeting you!
