Shannon Mattern: Mondays and Mornings Are Mine
Today we’ll be chatting with a very successful online business owner, Shannon Mattern.
Shannon teaches entrepreneurs how to DIY their websites and market themselves online (even if they have zero social media following and no budget for ads).
She’s the host of the Pep Talks for Side Hustlers podcast where she shares her own side-hustle to self-employed journey through her monthly income reports, and interviews entrepreneurs making from $50K to multiple millions of dollars to find out exactly how they did it.
Shannon’s mission is to empower people who want the freedom, flexibility and financial independence by removing the tech barriers holding them back from building their businesses online.
