I teach people how to invest in Cryptocurrency in a way that is fun and accessible. My background is in tech, which is what led me to crypto quite some time ago.

I am so passionate about helping other people understand crypto because it is just so cool!

I built my first website at the age of 8. I’m now 33, and I still love to figure things out, see what’s cool, do some coding. Crypto started as a result of the 2008 financial crisis. It’s an alternative way of thinking. This is a grassroots effort, combined with something that is cool, and crypto is a great community to be a part of. I want to share that with others!

I came into the program several months ago. I was attracted to this program because of you and your Facebook group. The topics and content are valuable in that Facebook group — and I felt like I had a place to be real and authentic. I was heard there.

I love learning, and I love hands-on workshops. The entire program is based on hands-on learning. I kept hearing about how awesome The Confident Expert Program was, and I wanted to experience it for myself.

One of my favorite things about the program is the live-in person trainings and meetings. The community is so real, and there are business owners from all walks of life. You get to meet real business owners who are doing real stuff out in the world. We share the challenges and brainstorm together. Those get-togethers for me are magic, and I’m so grateful to have this program in my life.

Since joining the program, just 4.5 months ago, I am now present in my life and my business. In the past, I tried to crack the code in my head, and I have tried to launch a successful business for the past 10 years. But it wasn’t working–I needed the real talk about business. Shannon shares the real stuff in her biz: the numbers, the ups and downs, the struggles, and the successes. This has taught me how to be in touch with myself and realize that business is about getting up every single day and doing the work.

The Confident Expert Program is not about flash-in-the-pan success stories. For years, I compared myself to people who marketed courses and sold them by sharing overnight success stories. I couldn’t figure out how to do that, and over time, my confidence decreased. I thought something was wrong with me.

But what I realize now is that business ownership takes work. And dedication and being consistently committed to your dreams, goals, and business. It takes time to build a sustainable business that transforms lives. That’s what this program is all about.
