Episode Description

Shawanna Johnson is a woman on the move. As the high school valedictorian she sky rocketed to Harvard University, graduating cum laude in 2001 with a Bachelors in Economics. After Harvard, Shawanna went to work on Wall Street for JPMorgan Chase as an Investment Banking Analyst. She also worked in finance for Bank of New York, Consolidated Resorts, Bally Gaming, and Sunterra Corporation. After 4 years in finance, she went to law school and she began her legal career at a mid-size Washington DC/New York firm. Shawanna moved home to Las Vegas in 2012, working for two major national law firms with a focus on litigation, and after briefly working for a local government agency, she launched her own business. On today's episode of Real Money you'll hear about Shawanna's journey, and you're going to hear all of the things it took for a young woman in North Las Vegas to move from Vegas to Wall Street, and back again. You're going to hear from Shawanna how she has created her life in business, law and everything in between, and beyond. More than anything I hope you hear that whatever it is you say you want in life, you can you have it too.

Real Money with Lisa Chastain

Monday at 10AM on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Not enough women are talking about money. The truth is, so many women feel shame and guilt about the choices they are making financially, and it isn't their fault! Men earn 90% of the wealth in the world. Although women are the majority spenders at 85%, we are left to figure out for ourselves how to manage our money following male dominated advice. Every woman is capable of feeling confident about the choices she is making about her money. The problem is that for so many women, money isn't relatable. Experts are talking over your head, and this show is the perfect place for you to improve your confidence and relationship with money. My goal is for women to lead in all areas of their life with clarity that they are making the right choices for their families, their careers, and their futures. With Real Money, we are going to share real stories of women who are tackling their most difficult financial challenges.
