We're back with one of my favourite segments, β€œWhere are they now?” Today, I'm checking in on  Shannon Ferguson, Co-Founder/COO of FanSaves,  And Kris McCarthy, Co-Founder and COO of FanSaves, a sports-focused mobile couponing platform, offering discounts and deals from sponsors. πŸˆβš½οΈπŸ€


I originally had Shannon and Kris here on the podcast as separate interviews during the pandemic and if you haven’t heard those, I ask you to go back and listen to episodes 149 and 159 first.


In this updated episode, we talk about: 


βœ… Taking time to smell the roses 

βœ… Then vs now - FanSaves growth path

πŸ’₯ Barriers women founders need to overcome

βœ… Building teams from the ground up.

πŸ’₯ How an impressive advisory board can help a startup. 

βœ… Diving in - not worrying about getting big funding first.

πŸ’₯ And lessons learned from less than perfect growth experiences.


Women are the backbone of small business in Canada. Let’s celebrate that. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
