If there's one thing we're obsessed with, it's people who get shit DONE. Motivated, talented individuals, grinding and inspiring us. With social media these days, we are super lucky to have access to thousands of people who have the same wants, goals and aspirations as ourselves.
Toronto has always been a thriving city when it comes to the job industry. We are incredibly lucky to have a metropolis that supports all kinds of careers, from finance to creative industries and more. With such a great infrastructure, people are able to climb to the top of their career. Not just any people either - bomb ass, bad ass women.
We thought we'd highlight some amazing, inspiring ladies in our great 4-1-6 in as a way of saying hey, we see you, and we think you're dope.
