SHOW NOTES

The next interview series on the podcast features Devon Fiddler, a Cree parent from the Waterhen Lake First Nation, Saskatchewan and the Chief Changemaker of SheNative Goods Inc, a brand of handbags and accessories dedicated to elevating Indigenous women and girls.

She is a speaker, influencer, thought leader, and program developer in entrepreneurship, leadership and skills development. This is the first of three mini episodes of our conversation, which took place in November.

Stay tuned for future episodes where we talk about all things parenthood, adapting her business during the pandemic and creating a social enterprise brand.

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT: 

  • Being a guest speaker and workshop facilitator with a baby
  • The importance of on-site childcare at events
  • Why virtual evening events are still difficult to attend as a parent
  • How her business, speaking and consulting engagements have changed during the pandemic
  • Moving from a retail space to an e-commerce model
  • Why we can't trust our kids with markers even when we're in the room
  • Adjusting our expectations and being okay with everyday failures

Thanks to Devon for speaking with us about parenthood and adapting her business during the pandemic!

ABOUT MIXING BABIES AND BUSINESS™
I believe parenthood and professional development doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive.

As a social impact movement and community, I'm focused on producing parent-friendly professional development, digital resources and more inclusive and flexible work solutions for primary caregivers.

This podcast is the result of my journey over the past five years bringing my kids into business settings, hosting parent-friendly professional development events and during these times, it's my creative attempt to continue connecting you with industry leaders and guest experts who also happen to be parents.

Mini episodes are released on Tuesday and Friday covering all things entrepreneurship, flexible and remote work with kids.

Thanks for listening and sharing with your network of parents!
