Catch up on this week’s episode of the Plutus Awards podcast where we feature Shannon McLay from The Financial Gym! Starting a business is hard. It’s even more challenging when it is a brick-and-mortar business and there is a lot of upfront money needed to get things off the ground.

Once Shannon McLay had the idea for the Financial Gym, she needed to find investors that would support her vision. Miranda Marquit speaks with Shannon about the business acumen it took to get her company going and the strategic moves she is making because of the pandemic.

Bitches at the Crossroads: State of the Blog, 2020

“We hope you’ve enjoyed season two of the Bitches Get Riches podcast. Recording it was a bright spot for us during this dumpster fire of a year, so thank you all for listening. As we wrap up another season, we had a few notes to share with you. Including some more personal reflections about how we’re doing, where we’re at, and what the future holds.” – Bitches Get Riches

Forged in Financial Crisis; The Fractured Hope of Being a Millennial

“The words ‘Millennial financial crisis’ go together like peanut butter and jelly. Financial crisis are my expectation. It is a part of the weight of being a Millennial. The world is in disarray and our generational expectation is that it will continue to be this way, not get better.” – Bravely Go

How I Saved Over $3,000 on My Kitchen Remodel

“I had this neighbor below me who complained about everything. It got to the point that I didn’t want to be in my house because he complained about any noise. One day, I got out of my bed in the middle of the night to get water and shortly after, I heard him banging on his cleaning (which is my floor), as if that was too much noise for him. GO TO SLEEP MAN!” – Budget Queen

Work, Anxiety, and Why I Became an Entrepreneur

“It’s 2009, the market is bottoming out. Our clients are firing us like mad. Back then, clients had to fax us a letter to terminate us as their manager (there was no Docusign). On a really bad day, in what felt like a perfect allegory about working in investment management at the time, we were getting so many client termination faxes that the fax machine literally burst into flames.” – Dumpster Doggy Blog

Review: M1 Finance, Learn How to Invest The Easy Way

“M1 Finance is a finance app that allows you to invest, borrow, and spend all in one place. It still gives you the flexibility to set your own strategy, while then automating everything else. And the best part is that it’s absolutely free, unless you choose to switch to their low-cost M1 Plus.” – Her First $100k
