Shannon Ryan

Pursuer of Financial Happiness

What you say about money matters. Understanding our personal narrative around money is the key to our financial happiness. Financial literacy is Shannon Ryan’s passion, and she credits her father for igniting her interest in the topic. He began his “money lessons” when she was 13 years old, emphasizing the behavioral side of money. Today Shannon is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) with two decades of experience. Her focus is the emotional side of money, focusing on how our financial narrative affects our decisions.

Shannon is a wealth advisor, blogger, speaker, and author of two children’s books. She has appeared on Good Morning America, CNBC, PBS, and many radio shows. Shannon was also invited to the White House to recognize her work with the Women’s Bureau on financial issues.

The book that most inspires Shannon’s heart is Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. In ten years, Shannon predicts many more people will have financial dignity through financial literacy.
