Saving With Steve

Apr 18, 2021

In this episode of Saving With Steve, host Steve Sexton is joined by Jeff Tinsley, the Founder and CEO at RealMe Solutions, and U.S. Navy Captain, engineer, mentor, and speaker, Jenn Donahue.


They say love hurts, and with so many romance scams out there today, that’s doubly true—hearts are broken and wallets are emptied. Over the past three years, people have reported losing more money on romance scams than on any other fraud type. In 2020, reported losses to romance scams reached a record $304 million, which was up about 50% from 2019.


It’s reasonable to wonder what happened in 2020 to make these dollars losses continue to spike. An obvious reason may be the pandemic limiting our ability to meet in person. But, outside of the pandemic, the share of people who have ever used an online dating site or app has also been rising and romance scammers are primed to take advantage. 


My first guest today, Jeff Tinsley, is the Founder and CEO at RealMe Solutions, an online reputation platform dedicated to cultivating safety and trust online. He joins us today to discuss fraud and scam prevention in the online marketplace, some of the biggest issues we are facing today in our digital interactions, and how RealMe is helping everyday people avoid being scammed out of their hard-earned money.


Feelings of self-doubt are nothing new for women in the workplace. In fact, 75% of female executives experience imposter syndrome. But, with personal and professional lives colliding, it has become more difficult than ever to “fake it ‘til you make it.” Whether you are a female in the workplace or not, you can learn some valuable lessons from my guest, Jenn Donahue, who is a U.S. Navy Captain, engineer, mentor, and speaker that helps leaders and managers tap into their most powerful source of strength.


She joins us today to share how we can take our camouflage off and stop trying to blend in, build the women leaders of tomorrow, find our leadership style, and command respect and loyalty from our team by building a solid foundation of trust.
