Ladies Who Lead are pleased to have our LWL Founder and local Financial Advisor Shannon McMannis present to our membership at our February meeting.

The financial community has been slow to recognize that men and women often think about money differently. It’s true that men and women share many investment goals: to be financially secure, save for retirement, and provide for the long-term needs of their families.

However, women must consider additional realities. With 50% of women expected to live to the age of 90 – and 25 percent to age 95 – women generally place more importance on long-term financial goals. They tend to have a holistic view of their finances, taking into account big-picture factors such as future healthcare needs.

This event aligns with our foundational pillars to Build Self and Build Relationships and will expand your personal and professional skills, including casual networking and great food! The Chef has planned an amazing buffet of delicious food that will tantalize your tastebuds!

~ Sweet Potato and Roasted Pepper Bisque with Essence of Cumin, Lime, and Cilantro ~ Salad of Sweet and Bitter Greens, Baby Spinach, Spiced Pecan, Tiny Tomatoes, Radishes, Lemon, and parmesan Vinaigrette ~ Organic Beet Salad with Crumbled Goat Cheese, Snipped Chives, Red Wine Vinaigrette ~ Turkey Breast Piccata, Lemon, Caper, and Parsley butter ~ Poached Salmon with White wine and Dill Cream, Tomato Relish ~ Roasted Potato Medley ~ Steamed Vegetables with Fine Olive Oil and Sea Salt ~ Treats provided by our dessert sponsor A Piece of Cake ~

Shannon is the Founder and CEO of Cornerstone Capital Financial Group, The Expositors Readers Choice Best of Brantford & Brant County Gold Winner for Financial Advisors, Community Votes Brantford 2022 Silver Winner for Financial Advisor, and Three Best Rated for Financial Services in Brantford. Shannon has twice been named the Financial Planner of The Year, as well as been awarded the Canada 150 and Ontario 150 Awards.

"Life happens, and I'm no stranger to facing and overcoming its challenges. Growing up on social assistance in geared-to-income housing, I know first-hand how hard one must work to earn an honest living. I discovered very quickly how to work smarter and how to change the script. I learned how to save efficiently and push my income further, acting strategically to propel my own success.

As a Certified Financial Planner, I help you plan for when life happens. The cornerstone of my work is the strong personalized relationships that I have developed over the years with my clients. One of my favourite things is having a front-row seat to my clients' successes, and watching them accomplish big life goals.

My first-hand knowledge and experience, along with my continuous education, enable me to help my clients with more than just investing. I take a step back to see the big picture for each individual. Financial health is always intertwined with physical, emotional, and mental well-being, and there is no one-size-fits-all institutional approach for each person's unique needs.

I did not walk my own journey alone. Many people helped me along the way, and that is why I am so passionate about helping others succeed. I've become involved in many local initiatives because the concept of giving back to the community is at my core. I founded The Power of the Purse, a speaker series designed to help other women achieve financial stability and freedom. From there, I created Ladies Who Lead, a network of local professional women who have come together with four goals: Building Business, Building Self, Building Relationships, and Building Community.

We are all unique, with different objectives and priorities. My goal is to help you feel confident and secure about your own tomorrow while enjoying all that life has to offer today!"
