The Story Behind SDG Business Consulting & Financial Services

business consulting

Sharon Griffin started SDG Business Consulting and 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 on providing people with a better understanding of the financial world and how it works. 

Sharon’s true passion was realized when Thematic Learning Organization (TLO) became a reality. TLO was formed in 2014 by women who saw a need to bridge the gap between the underemployed and business owners who lacked skilled professional staff. Over the years TLO expanded and offers many vocational training programs as well as financial literacy education. 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.

She firmly believes that by promoting financial education and providing resources to help individuals and businesses make sound financial decisions, we can create a more equitable and prosperous society. At SDG, we are committed to empowering our clients to achieve their financial goals and improve their overall well-being.

Financial Literacy

Sharon’s mentorship allowed for more growth under the SDG Business Consulting and Financial Services 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 through a variety of one-on-one and group training where accountability, budgeting, and investing are taught. This step-by-step foundation is making a difference in the lives of clients and creating forward momentum toward generational wealth.

Sharon’s companies assist clients from many industries including government, nonprofit organizations, financial institutions, small businesses, and sole proprietors. SDG Business Consulting, Inc. is a certified WBE/MBE/SBE Consultancy Company.
