Helping Women Talk About Money and Investing

If you’ve been listening to this show for a while, you know that I’m a supporter of women started businesses and also events, services and products designed to help women better manage their money. I’m such a supporter that a few months back a listener left an iTunes review saying that I was anti-male and reverse discriminatory. I know that there’s gender sensitivity out there, I’m blonde, not dumb, but the facts around gender roles and personal finance unfortunately speak for themselves, women earn 30% less than men, they don’t invest as much, they’re targeted for more consumer and credit products and they live longer.

I’m not anti-male, as the founder of a financial services company, I just see the disparity all day long and I’ve made it my mission to close the financial gaps that I see. All that being said, this is why I’m excited to have today’s guest on the show. Hilary Hendershott is a financial planner and host of the Profit Boss podcast who has decided to host a women’s wealth building event called Profit Boss live.

What are we drinking:

Hilary – Americano (espresso with hot water)

Shannon – Lemon Lime Schweppes

Shannon is a financial planner who left a “traditional” financial services firm to start her own company, The Financial Gym, because she felt traditional financial services firms did not have the tools or resources to help people in their 20s and 30s who are starting out and trying to build assets while also managing debt. She realized that the key to long-term personal financial success is a commitment to financial fitness and making smart financial choices. Through her blog, Financially Blonde, her book, Train Your Way To Financial Fitness, her podcast, Martinis and Your Money and The Financial Gym, Shannon is committed to making financial fitness fun, easy and accessible for everyone.
