"The greatest success we’ll know, is helping others succeed and grow."

Who I Am
Shante Nicole’s passion for serving others has always been at the center of her life. She is an author, financial educator, certified credit consultant, holds a degree in nursing, and is the founder of her nonprofit organizations: F.A.C.E. (Facing Autism with Children Everywhere), and Financial Common Cents. As if that doesn’t keep her busy enough, she is also a wife and mother of a child with autism.
In January 2017, she started an online Facebook community, "Financial Common Cents", whose motto is “Education…Restoration…Liberation”. It was her mission to empower people to rebuild, restore, and repair their credit. She also helps individuals devise a consistent plan to manage their finances and their debt. To date, her “FCC family” has grown to over 97,000 members from over 100 countries.
Through her nonprofit organization, Financial Common Cents, she facilitates workshops, online courses, and personalized financial & credit coaching. As a panelist with SunTrust Bank’s onUp Movement, she educates her community on credit, budgeting, and debt management.
She’s also the founder of “Kids Making Cents”, a financial literacy program that offers educational products and workshops in the community including schools, churches, and recreational camps
Her book “Bills and Credit and Debt…OH MY!”, breaks down the ins and outs of credit, where to start the rebuilding and repairing process, how to become debt free, and how she overcame her own financial hardships, struggles, and setbacks.
