So refreshing & thoughfull
As a man, I enjoy to see women are taking lead in business and workplaces. Great interviews with women leaders - Diane is a wonderful human-being and a very successful entrepreneur.
Important personal (and human) talk with Nirmala will help me “weed” out (no pun intended) fake from real news to decide on who to vote for in the upcoming municipal election in Markham Oct 2018.
Enjoying these refreshing views of everyday people with real and in some cases raw stories of strength and stamina in the face of adversity.
