We live in a society with certain expectations. Expectations of what a woman does and does not do. Expectations of which jobs are respectable, often closely tied to making the most money, and what our goals should be – financially, professionally, and domestically. Many women let these expectations drive our life decisions, knowingly or not. This series is a celebration of women at work, doing what they love with no questions asked. It’s not about money or society’s image of success. At some point in their lives, they self-motivated their way to where they are now. Unapologetically doing their thing and doing it well.
