Today’s guest is a fellow super-connector, serial entrepreneur, and author. Her first business, founded in 2009, is a credit card processing company that spans 38 states. She next launched Network Under 40 in 2011 to help people make valuable social and professional connections that lead to friendships and business. This endeavor is now hosting sold-out events in 7 U.S. cities.
She also founded Finance Whiz Kids in 2012 to teach elementary-aged kids the basics of financial literacy through fun and engaging stories. Her kids’ book series by the same name caught the attention of the World Economic Forum and she was invited to their Annual Meeting in Davos to present about youth financial literacy.
The through-line of everything she does is what she calls “net weaving” – connecting the dots between one person or business to another. She gets so much joy from helping others get closer to their goals and has learned, in turn, that what goes around, comes around. To inspire others to follow suit, she founded the social movement #GiveItForward, which aims to empower 1,000,000 people to intentionally give to one person in some way every day, with no strings attached.
