My Guest on the Show…

A few months ago I came across this really incredible FinTech (Financial Technology) software called Trim.

Trim does many things like sending me a message letting me know how many subscriptions I have active, how much I am (over) paying, and even allows me to cancel anything and everything with one push of a button!

The way I think about Trim is this: it’s the virtual assistant in the background of my life, working 24/7 for free, and making me look like a financial rockstar when it comes to the everyday money.

Which is why I wanted to talk to the man behind Trim – Thomas Smyth. Thomas is my favorite kind of entrepreneur. He took an idea running around in his head, gave it a direction, and created an incredible product with a very strong WHY behind it – to automate our good financial habits so we can focus on the things in life we would much rather focus on…versus spending an hour on the phone with the cable company negotiating a bill (Trim does this).
