Saskatchewan Sisterhood Road Trip
It was a 7-week tour around Saskatchewan, from July 9th to August 24th, 2018! Amanda embarked upon a road trip around the province, to highlight and connect with amazing women in our province. She co-hosted 15 free events with local business owners and leaders! Why? Because she knew that Saskatchewan women are strong, compassionate, and kind…and we’re even better together. In these events, she met over 1,000 women in person!
Amanda's aim was to bring women together to talk: about our struggles, our successes, our everyday ‘stuff’. By using our voices, her hope is that Saskatchewan women will feel confident to ask for what we want (in everyday life) and accept nothing short of what we deserve.
Featured in local and provincial media, the road trip gathered steam as the days went by! Local women loved the event, and then often planned to go to the next one nearby...a "connection caravan" of sorts. Attendees also told their friends, sisters, and family members: "Go to this event near you! It's so good - you won't regret it!"

The road trip was life-changing for Amanda, on a personal and business level. It resulted in a network of women across the province, bonded by their shared love of connection, growth, and supporting each other. New business partnerships, new friendships, and new events arose from the road trip, and Amanda and her team couldn't be more thrilled. It was a true success, on many levels!
Amanda will be looking into more events, and how to continue to create space for women to truly be themselves and connect with others. Stay tuned!
Amanda is also writing a book, titled "47 Days: A Journey Back Home." This memoir-style book is due out in June 2019. Be sure to follow Grounded Goodness on Instagram and Facebook to find out more details, closer to the date!
