2016 has been filled with tears, hardships, change, and disappointment. For some of us, it actually was a great year though. For some of us, 2016 was the year of opportunity, advancement, and networking. We’ve reached new heights, new people, and new ideas. I kept my eyes and ears open while grinding myself and I must say there’s been some amazing accomplishments coming from my city. I don’t think Milwaukee Natives spend enough time congratulating and uplifting one another so I compiled this list of bosses for the record. This list leaves out a multitude of other hard workers but it doesn’t take away from the grind. Utilize Time to the best of your ability and always remember 2 L’s make a W.
