Type of Business
Leadership Coaching / Consulting
I am the CEO and Founder of Fanning Financial Group, LLC as well partnered with the GOALL Program where I am an independent financial consultant/coach. I basically work with people by helping them with their budget, savings and retirement plans. I help them hit their financial goals by setting up a blueprint that works for them as well as coaching them through some of the emotional baggage that’s tied to money that we all have but never really are aware of or address as a potential roadblock that may hinder us from reaching our financial goals. By being a partner with the GOALL program, I am able to also assist small business owners with setting up tax-free retirement plans for themselves and their employees by either offering a match or not, which is very attractive to business owners.
When & why I joined NAWBO
I joined the NAWBO DC chapter in April 2022. My friend and mentor Dawn McGruder told me that she was going to be President and she thought I would really love the organization and would be a great fit. So I went on faith and not only joined but applied to be on the board and was selected. I was also really looking for an organization in the DMV area that was a great support system to women business owners because we are a unique group and networking with like minded people is a joy and so invigorating.
When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass the time?
Since I work for myself and mainly work from home, I love getting out and having time to hang with friends by going to dinner or going to a show or checking out the local museums.
Your favorite quote is:
“To thine own self be true.” At the end of the day, your business will flourish if you are your most authentic and sincere self because people are drawn to do business with you and not just a product or service you provide.
Name a person (living or dead) who inspires you. Why
Honestly, I am inspired by many people based on different attributes but I tend to lean towards being inspired by someone who has not only built a successful business but can teach others, in plain english, how they were able to get to their level of success and are willing to share that knowledge with others.
