Meet Misty: An Intuitive Entrepreneur who is Dehcho Dene from Tthek'éhsehdélı̨ First Nation (Jean Marie River) in the Northwest Territories.
Misty is the Owner of Dene Roots, which promotes the power of Dene Science and offers products for those seeking deeper spiritual connections, balance, and wellbeing. For over 15 years she's been creating smokeless smudge sprays that can be used anywhere and blend traditional medicines like spruce root, juniper berry, and sage.
Misty is also a Reiki Master and Life Coach. Last year, she made the bold decision to combine her gifts and jump into entrepreneurship full-time. She hasn't looked back since and wants to encourage more Northerners to take the plunge. For Misty, entrepreneurship is a pathway to inspire community-level change that elevates our economies and our collective sense of wellbeing.
In this episode you will also meet Tłı̨chǫ changemaker Benjamin Scott, who is the Founding Project Director of EntrepreNorth. Ben and Misty are thought partners who have offered each other a lot of mutual support over the years, and Ben has been witnessing Misty's growth journey since her participation in EntrepreNorth's inaugural Land Crafted cohort.
