Trading Secrets

Nov 14, 2022

This week, Jason is joined by the fun loving and highly successful social media stars, Shannon Ford! 


Many may remember Shannon as one of the main personalities on the hit TV show, Very Cavallari, where she worked as the social media manager for fashion company Uncommon James. Although her time on the show lasted just beyond a season, Shannon was able to take experience and turn what could have been fifteen minutes of fame into a full blown career success story. 


Shannon gives insights to how she grew up with little money and how it shaped her mindset of always making money, prioritizing preserving friendships over projects, investing her own money into Probably a  Podcast and not signing to a starter network, how she ended up at Dear Media, and how staying true to herself got her hired at Uncommon James. Shannon also reveals what she pays in rent in New York compared to Nashville, what she was doing before she was hired as a social media manager and being casted for Very Cavallari, what happened to her original podcast Probably a Podcast, and why she looks at making big career goals over a certain dollar amount. What was her worst purchase decision?  Does she make more on Instagram or her podcast? 


Shannon reveals all that and so much more in another episode you can’t afford to miss! 


PLUS, listener Julie from Boston gives insight to how she started her side hustle of teaching people how to sell printables on Etsy after working in tech. Julie worked as a project manager on the watch team at Apple before heading over to Amazon where she took a $50k pay cut. However, her Etsy side hustle grew to such a degree that she was able to leave Amazon and focus on growing her own business and masterclass to help others succeed on Etsy!
