What Our Guest Talked About

Stephanie reminded our listeners that applying the financial knowledge you learn is just as important as receiving the financial education itself. Stephanie helps her clients to apply the information and education they receive to their specific situations. Stephanie then works on the “money mindset” of her clients, who she says must have a willingness to absorb what they are learning.

Stephanie also talked about how, in 2018, she made the move from corporate positions to full-time entrepreneurship. She detailed how her educational choices in high school and college prepared her for her entrepreneurial journey.
