marshaThroughout her entire career in the banking industry, Marsha Barnes was always a diligent saver. But she never understood what she was saving for until two years ago. It was then that she decided to launch The Finance Bar, a startup mobile — yes, as in wheels — personal finance hub meant to empower people to take control of their finances. The journey wasn't always easy — Marsha sunk over $35,000 of her own savings into the business and didn't make money right away. When she finally quit her job in December 2016 to focus on the business, she took a huge gamble — on herself.

"What if you just wake up one day and there's something different that you want to do in life? How do you pivot? 

For me, one day I woke up and I said 'I want to leave my job to do something that I really love to wake up and do.' And that is why I was saving money all along. I just didn’t realize it."
