Small Business Success Podcast 002—Sailing off the Cliff—Stephanie Holmes

Stephanie Holmes faced condescension when she floated the idea of deviating from just selling financial services. She wanted to help people change their spending habits, structure their debt, and have the life they want, and she had to start her own practice to do it. She later sold it when she started The Money Finder, of which she is currently the CEO. She chats with Clate and Scott about naysayers who tell her she’s a “stupid little girl,” seeing challenges as adventures, business inspiration, and how to grow a team and make sales happen without her direct involvement.

Mentioned in this podcast:

  • “Banker to the Poor” by Muhammad Yunus
  • “The Icarus Deception” by Seth Godin
  • “Pitch Anything” by Oren Klaff
  • “The Little Books of Value Investing” by Christopher H. Brown
