Meet Amanda Munday
A queer mama of two and the founder and CEO of The Workaround, a 13,000 sq ft coworking space with child care on-site in Toronto
She is an internationally recognized speaker and bestselling author of Day Nine, a postpartum depression memoir. Amanda’s 2020 TEDxToronto talk was only one of 4 selected to air nationally on CTV in Canada, and she’s regularly asked to contribute to The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, The Associated Press, Forbes, Bloomberg, and CBC regarding supporting working women and parents, small business entrepreneurship, and child care.
Amanda's approach to building a feminist and inclusive business earned her the Toronto Community Foundation Vital People Award and identified as a Women of Influence in 2020.
"If you don't take Amanda's course, you're missing out on her ability to see your opportunities connect at a really high level. I had a vague idea that I wanted to launch a business supporting a specific industry, and during two strategy sessions, Amanda mapped out my entire revenue model and channel delivery. She also helped me identify completely new areas of growth into complementary markets that I wouldn't have seen for myself. She's a brilliant strategist, ballsy female entrepreneur, and experienced growth marketer, and her course will be worth every penny."

"The community is equivalent to the group text that you hit up when you need a boost.”
