When Amanda Perrot started her St. Brieux based business, Grounded Goodness, she wanted to spread her message of motivation, inspiration, and self-development through decals and connection events.
Perrot is now taking that message across the province with her 4,000 kilometre Saskatchewan Sisterhood tour with events to connect with Saskatchewan people.
“When we do find time to sit and talk with new people and new friends, we make great connections and all sorts of stuff can come from that…we’re stronger together.”
Perrot kicked off her event in Melfort on July 8 at Dayna Brooke Park with around 50 people helping to send her off on her tour.
The park was developed by her sister and brother-in-law in memory of Perrot’s niece, so this also a way to christen and promote the new park.
“It’s all about bringing people together and that’s what we did.”
There are fantastic people from across the province that are doing amazing things, says Perott, and since her product line and events are bought and attended mostly by women, Perrot is excited for all the women she is going to meet on her trip. Even just in the Humboldt, Melfort, and St. Brieux areas there are tons of people doing amazing things, she says.
“I don’t know who else is out there so I want to go find and meet these women. Business owners, community leaders, women that have visions and want to see great things happen for their community.”
Collaboration leads to great ideas and great things, which is the biggest thing that Perrot is looking forward to as she goes on to meet people from across the province and has conversations with people.
Other stops for Perrot’s tour includes Kindersley, Swift Current, Lloydminister, Niapwin, and Tisdale, with the final stop being in Humboldt on Aug. 23. Over seven weeks of travel, Perrot is expecting to host around 20 events throughout the province.
