Lindsay Shookus and Kristin O'Keeffe Merrick became best friends in college, before Shookus was an Emmy Award-winning producer on Saturday Night Live and O'Keeffe Merrick was a currency trader on Wall Street, who then went on to become a financial advisor for her family-run firm O'Keeffe Financial Partners. The über successful best friends are now paying it forward through Women Working F*cking Hard, a platform that organizes fun networking events to connect “women helping women help women,” as they put it on their website. “Linds and I have kind of put our heads together and tried to make a more concerted effort to focus on helping female founders and female entrepreneurs who feel like they either need a network or a community or they need resources,” O'Keeffe Merrick said.
