LISTEN HERE

We’ve all got our own version of 99 problems and some of them we feel easy and breezy to talk about. I’d surely tell you about my vitamin D deficiency or about a stubborn pimple on my neck that grew into a cyst the size of a tennis ball - over telling you about my finances.

Money is an awkward thing to talk about and often when we have money problems, money questions, or money in our bank account, we don’t know what to do.


Meet Shannon McLay, she spent the first part of her career working for big banks helping rich people get richer until she discovered a substantial need to provide a roadmap for financial health to people of all financial shapes and sizes.
