Why Financial Literacy Matters

Financial literacy is the secret ingredient that transforms financial chaos into harmony. Just like mastering a recipe, it's about more than just numbers—it's about gaining the knowledge and confidence to create a balanced financial dish. With Shelley's guidance, your employees will learn how to finesse financial ingredients and unlock opportunities for a tastier personal and professional future. 


When your employees have financial confidence, they will have less stress and be more productive team members. The result? Higher employee loyalty and retention that will lead to more ROI and a competitive advantage for your company. 

According to Time magazine, 97% of employees concede they spend time working on or worrying about finances during the workday.  A PWC study found that nearly 50% of employees who are worried about their financial health are less productive at work and spend at least 3 hours each week dealing with personal financial issues.

Stephanie Burritt, IIDA, NCIDQ

Managing Director | Principal, Gensler

"We have so enjoyed having Shelley and her team join us in the office to share their knowledge of personal finance.  Her “food and finance” mantra makes her very relatable and approachable.  More importantly she has taken what can often be an overwhelming subject and has put it into “bite size” pieces giving us a greater sense of confidence as we manage our own personal finance decisions.  We look forward to welcoming her back to the office for our next session!"
