Sharon Griffin started SDG Financial Services in 2004 as a bookkeeping and tax preparation company. Within a matter of a few short years, her reputation for on-point business strategy and economic literacy allowed her business services to expand into SDG Business Consulting. This new company expanded the team to now provide risk management analysis and economic leadership. Both SDG Financial Services and SDG Business Consulting are certified with the designations of Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Small Business Enterprise (SBE). These distinctions have paved a way for Sharon and her team to branch into the not-for-profit sector of education with a focus to providing people with a better understanding of the financial world and how it works.
Sharon’s true passion was realized when Thematic Learning Organization became a reality in 2014. Thematic Learning Organization’s focus to stamp out financial illiteracy by educating people on how money works and showing them how to make it work for them. Her belief and mission is to provide educational services to some of the most in-need segments within our neighborhoods – the underemployed and those seeking financial stability – her goal will change the future for our cities, state, and nation. Through her partnership with corporations, state and local government, public schools, and nonprofit organizations, her vision is changing communities one family at a time. And she’s not stopping there, for individuals who want to take a different path and pursue their passion and purpose, her team offers education and workshops in entrepreneurship.
Sharon’s mentorship allowed for more growth under the SDG umbrella with the addition of SB Advisors in 2016. We teach financial concepts and strategies to empower our clients to achieve their monetary goals. This is done by a variety of one-on-one and group trainings where accountability, budgeting, and investing are taught.
