TWS S2 E8 • Shannon McLay
Become Financially Fit with Shannon McLay
"We use wine and Kleenex to get our clients financially fit!"
Do you have any fears about money? Do you want financial freedom? Do you desire to go on an adventure, book a challenge or become a parent to a furry child?
Money is on our mind when dreaming of a new lifestyle, adventure or a sports event, like an Ironman.
With me today is Shannon McLay, one of the few female financial CEO’s and we aim to get you thinking differently about money.
On a side note, did you know that there are more CEOs in financial services called John than women?! It’s crazy, especially when 80% of consumer and household spending is managed by women and we make up half the workforce!
Shannon McLay left her financial services career at Merrill Lynch 4 years ago to found the Financial Gym and has been creating gym magic ever since.
Shannon and her team of 4 women teach their clients how to manage their money in a fun way and get financially fit: making their lifestyle work around your money – and they have a 90% success rate!
We don’t want money to get in the way of you achieving your dream, so tune in to pick up some money wisdom, such as no spending days, side hustling and how to plan and save effectively, along with some mind-blowing stories!
