We're back with one of my favourite segments, “Where 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. 🏈⚽️🏀
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:
✅ Taking time to smell the roses
✅ Then vs now - FanSaves growth path
💥 Barriers women founders need to overcome
✅ Building teams from the ground up.
💥 How an impressive advisory board can help a startup.
✅ Diving in - not worrying about getting big funding first.
💥 And lessons learned from less than perfect growth experiences.
Women are the backbone of small business in Canada. Let’s celebrate that. 🎉🎉🎉
Enjoy this episode!
