Happy Birthday SheNative!

Last week SheNative celebrated its 5th year in business.

A full reflection on this milestone to come. For now, though, we'll leave you with this: Our Chief Changemaker Devon Fiddler and Indigenous designer Emery Assinibione co-created a stunning purse called The Strength Tote — inspired by the women who choose to innovate and create professionally. If you know a woman who embodies these things, please let her know about The Strength Tote or consider gifting it to her.

We're celebrating our 5th year in business because you — our open-hearted, open-minded community — continue to support us and our vision. From sharing our purses and apparel with those who you feel would resonate with them to purchasing our goods because you connect to the purpose and beauty behind them — we see you. We're grateful for you. Thank you.

Team SheNative

These are the words Indigenous law school graduate Harpreet Ahuja would tell her 12 year old self. Years later, she’s moments away from becoming a lawyer and a challenger. I could share more about this fearless Indigenous woman changemaker (talking with her on Zoom was a joy -- highly recommend!), but her words hold great wisdom -- colouring these pages with resilience and courage. And so, without further delay, here is our first interview together!

Entrepreneurship + Caregiving for A Loved One Who's Chronically Ill: The Journey Part 1

Right now we could talk about the many bumps along the journey of entrepreneurship. Veeeery late nights. Tear-filled mornings -- most often at least half due to staying up too late the night before -- resulting in never-getting-out-of-there coffee stains. Changing relationships that you thought were going to be ride-or-die. These are a very small selection of the bumps I've experienced over the years.  

Or we could talk about one of the most remarkable gifts entrepreneurship can provide: The ability to extend moments in time on short notice. To explain what I mean, here's a post I wrote on my Instagram back in August 2019...
