About Shannah

Hi, I’m Shannah! It’s so nice to meet you!

I’m a modern day personal finance strategist that understands the need for the perfect combination of solid financial advice, all delivered with a few dashes of fun. Although my clients are varied, my heart belongs to entrepreneurs and small business owners.

As someone who founded and ran a successful national film festival while still in college, Hometown Cinema, Inc., I know first hand how important it is to understand and take control of your finances, both personally and professionally.

I’m also is a Millennial Money expert, creating original content in various mediums. I’m the host of the popular iTunes podcast, Millennial Money. You can also find me on my Millennial Money YouTube channel and online at Your Millennial Money.

I graduated from Pepperdine University with an MBA and have my undergraduate degree  from Indiana University. (Yes, I witnessed a few legendary basketball games coached by the infamous Bobby Knight. Go Hoosiers!)

I’m the Principal at Shannah L. Compton, CFP®, MBA, a California Registered Investment Advisory Firm. In 2011, I became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER Professional, joining a small list of fellow CFP’s across the U.S. I honestly never imagined that I would know my way around an HP calculator like I do now.

Here are a few of my achievements over the years:

  • Named a CFP Board Ambassador in 2014
  • Lecturer in Finance at Cal State University Northridge helping students master their money
  • Won an “Outstanding Young Californian Award”, and a “40 Under 40” award
  • Host of popular Millennial Money podcast show
  • Featured contributor to many articles online and in print talking about millennials and money
