22. Breaking Down Money To Give Financial Freedom, with Shannon McLay
Play • 52 min

The number of women I get to speak with who are tackling different businesses and brands continues to amaze me! Today's guest, Shannon McLay, is the founder of The Financial Gym, which provides you with a personal financial trainer to put you in control of your finances, one step at a time.

Shannon starts by telling me how she was living life according to plan, checking all the boxes and making money, when she realized that she wasn't really happy or enjoying what she was doing. What Shannon did next is pretty bold -- she continued working her 9-5 at Merrill Lynch while taking on (what she called) pro bono clients that didn't meet her financial threshold but needed real help. This is what brought her to life! She started the The Financial Gym slowly, mainly working off referrals and building her team accordingly.

Shannon and I jump into some personal development pieces that I LOVED -- my favorite being when she puts herself in time out and how she curates her social media. She also gives us insight into her schedule and when she forces herself to take off. We finish with her breaking down what The Financial Gym is and the three types of clients they service.

Shannon has such a great story of someone who found her passion and continued to forge the path to make it a business. Whether you have your finances in a spreadsheet or have no idea what you are doing, this episode and The Financial Gym can help! Make sure to check out their site, Instagram and Shannon's podcast.
