The Gaming Classroom ,

Great behind the scenes business podcast

I have really enjoyed watching Shannon’s journey as she went from side hustle to full-time employment in her own business. The show is very open and honest. Her income reports take you behind the scenes in ways most other business says won’t. I am so grateful for the insight.

Miss Magnolia Says ,

LOVE this podcast and Shannon!

I am so happy to have stumbled upon this podcast. I am not a web designer but I AM a new entrepreneur in the online business world and Shannon’s podcast episodes are so honest and inspiring. She keeps me going and I always scroll through the episodes to find a title that fits when I need some inspiration.

C Varner ,

Real talk for business owners!

Shannon’s podcast is one of my faves because she’s so genuine about what she’s going through and also brings in fabulous guests. You can count on her to ask insightful questions.

I also love her monthly income report where she shares how her month has gone - ups and downs. As a Virtual CFO, I love that she does this because it’s HELPFUL to hear other’s experiences to learn from.

Cheering you on, Shannon!

Joyfully,
Christie Varner
