Our guest on the first ever episode of Made Possible is Lynn-Marie Angus, Indigenous entrepreneur and one of the founders of Sisters Sage. Hear Lynn’s experience in transitioning from a career in construction to founding a thriving, award-winning small business. Along the way, we discuss the challenges faced by Indigenous entrepreneurs in Canada, what it means to ‘sage against the machine,’ and how growth doesn’t happen at the speed of comfort.
