Shannon is the CEO and founder of the Financial Gym, a revolutionary financial services company breaking barriers in the realm of financial wellness. Throughout our conversation, we deep-dive into the motivating factors behind the inception of her company, exploring the challenges, prejudices, and anxieties that individuals often grapple with when handling their personal finances.
We also take a journey through the origin story of the Financial Gym and uncover the secrets behind its success. Prepare for an insightful discussion filled with stories, wisdom, and actionable advice.
Key Discussion Points
