Makers, creators, magicians: how Sandra DeLaronde envisions women in business
Play • 36 min

“When we can be open to receiving the gifts of the universe, whether that be financial abundance or whatever一seeing ourselves not just as users of a system, but also makers of a system, to see ourselves as magicians, because as women we are able to create, and to bring into being life, right? And so, how do we translate that ability and that strength and that magic into the work that we do?” - Sandra DeLaronde, Northern Sage

If you are, as Sandra says, a magician, using your abilities and strengths to bring your work to life in a new way as an entrepreneur一and if you are interested in abundance, in being the maker of a system, then this episode is for you.

Starting your own business can feel like uncharted territory and sometimes it’s hard to see a way forward. In order to move forward, Sandra suggests that maybe we need to look back, to learn from our mothers and our grandmothers, and to see ourselves as creators in our work. Oh, and how laughter can be a great business practice!  

Sandra is the founder and owner of Northern Sage, a consulting firm that focuses on empowering and raising up Indigenous women, their families, and their communities.

She’s a member of Cross Lake First Nation with roots in the Métis settlement of Duck Bay and she’s a passionate advocate for ending violence and supporting the families of MMWG + 2 spirited people. 

What Sandra has to share, with the lens of her experience and wisdom, sheds so much light on what it means to be enterprising – in our businesses, our families, and in our communities. 

Here's How It's Done is hosted by Cate Friesen and brought to you by the Women's Enterprise Centre of Manitoba.
