Lisa Agee is a native Torontonian, and retired at the young age of 38. As impressive as that is, what is even more impressive is that she did so while being a mother of five children. “Sure, working from home with six kids was a hectic at times,” Agee explains, “but it was important to me that I was there to raise my children.”
Eight years ago, Agee helped start up a successful online clothing store.
