204 Your Investing Questions Answered - Jessica Moorhouse

For my final episode of Season 8 of the Mo’ Money Podcast, I’ve got a solo episode for you, and it’s all about answering your investing questions. I get investing questions all the time at events I organize or speak at, via email or even through social media. So, since I just did my Level Up Your Moneyevent with Erin Lowry which included a Q&A (but wasn’t part of the recording we did), I thought I would do an episode focused solely on answering all your most pressing investing...


203 Solutions for Your Student Debt - David Carlson, Author & Founder of Young Adult Money

For the last interview episode of Season 8, I talk with David Carlson, the founder of Young Adult Money, and the author of Student Debt Solutions. And his book and student debt (and finding solutions to paying it down) are exactly what we chat about in this interview. This is pretty timely too since many students are graduating university with student debt and don’t know where to start in paying it back. If you are a student and are in this situation, just remember you are not alone. So...


202 Why You Need to Make a Will - Erin Bury, CEO & Co-Founder of Willful

For this bonus episode of the podcast, I interview Erin Bury, who you may remember from episode 70 of the show. Back then, in 2016, she was the Managing Director at 88 Creative. She’s since switched paths and co-founded the online will-making software Willful with her husband and has recently become the company’s CEO. Since making a will is a very important element in having a complete financial plan, I wanted to have her on the show to shed some light about what the process looks like. I...


201 How to Become Your Best Self - Mike Bayer, NYT Bestselling Author & Life Coach

There’s no point in talking about investing strategies or tips on how to stick to a budget if you don’t like who you are or the direction your life is going in, am I right? Personal finance is important, but being your authentic self and striving to be your best self is something I personally believe you need to work on first, otherwise you won’t have a strong enough reason to be smart and responsible with your money. And that’s why I’ve got Mike Bayer a.k.a. Coach Mike on the podcast. He...


200 Why You Need to Show Up for Yourself - Natasha Koifman, President of NKPR

If you’re looking for some motivation to set your goals and actually do something about them, then this episode is for you! I interview Natasha Koifman, founder and president of NKPR, one of North America’s top PR and marketing companies, about how she was able to go from young single mom to one of Canada’s most powerful and innovative women. For this episode, we talk about what it means to show up for yourself (and others) and why it’s so important. What it really means, to break it...


199 How to Level Up Your Money - Jessica Moorhouse, Erin Lowry, Barry Choi & Diana Stoparic

Last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of joining forces with Erin Lowry (author Broke Millennial and Broke Millennial Takes on Investing) in Toronto for a special event we called Level Up Your Money! It was a sold-out event sponsored by TD Direct Investing and was all about how to inspire and educate millennials about how to get started with investing. We were joined by money expert Barry Choi and TD Direct Investing Education Facilitator Diana Stoparic for a panel discussion on the key things...


198 A Beginner's Guide to Investing - Erin Lowry, Author of Broke Millennial Takes on Investing

It’s been a few years since I first had Erin Lowry on the show to talk about her first book Broke Millennial (that’s episode 109 if you want to listen), and she’s back with a brand new book called Broke Millennial Takes on Investing! She’s still on her book tour, but we recently teamed up to co-organize our Level Up Your Money Torontoevent last week, and while she was in town I got to do an in-person interview for this episode of the podcast. Since her new book is about investing, but...


197 The Leverage Equation to Reach Financial Independence - Todd Tresidder, Author & Founder of

I love having repeat guests on the show, especially when it's been years since their last interview with me. For this episode, I have founder and author Todd Tresidder back on the show to talk about his new book The Leverage Equation. If you're a longtime listener, you'll remember him from episode 46 where we talked about his journey of reaching financial independence at 35. For this episode, we talk more about the topics he discusses in his book, namely how to reach...


196 Looking at the "Why" of Financial Independence - Grant Sabatier, Author of Financial Freedom

What was going to be an interview about how Grant Sabatier, blogger at Millennial Money and new author of Financial Freedom, was able to become a million in only 5 years, sure turned into something quite different! Maybe it’s because I’ve interviewed so many guests on the show about how they’ve reached millionaire status at such a young age, or because Grant majored in Philosophy, but in this episode we dive deep and talk about the “Why” behind wanting to reach financial...


195 Empowered Entrepreneurs Empower Entrepreneurs - Devon Fiddler, Founder of SheNative

For this episode of the podcast, I have Devon Fiddler, founder of SheNative, with me to talk about her journey into entrepreneurship and she not only hopes to grow her business, but to empower more indigenous women to become entrepreneurs too. Devon founded SheNative in 2014, and since then has received numerous awards such as the 2015 CBC Future 40 Under 40 designation, 2015 Start-up Canada Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, the 2016 YWCA Women of Distinction Award Under 29 category...


194 Millennial Retirement Planning: How to Save Enough - Ron Haik, Financial Planner at Nicola Wealth

A topic that I think we millennials all need to focus more on is retirement planning. And the reason I think so is because traditionally retirement planning seemed like something for older generations, and what us younger generations needed to focus on was debt-repayment and homeownership. Listen, I know us millennials have a lot going on, but NOW is the time to start planning for retirement, not when we’re nearing it. That’s why I have Ron Haik, Senior Financial Planner & Regional...


193 Startup Money Made Easy - Maria Aspan, Editor-at-Large at Inc. Magazine

For anyone interested in startups or starting their own business (no matter how big or small), I’ve got an episode for you! For this episode of the Mo’ Money Podcast, I’m joined by Maria Aspan, the editor-at-large of Inc. Magazine and the author of the new book Startup Money Made Easy. Maria has a unique perspective on entrepreneurship because she isn’t sharing her own entrepreneurial journey. She’s sharing what she’s learned by interviewing hundreds of entrepreneurs about their journeys....


192 Planning for a Successful Retirement - Larry Swedroe, Author & Director of Research for Buckingham Strategic Wealth

I don’t know why exactly, but lately I’ve been hearing from my millennial clients their big concern about not being able to afford retirement. I’m talking 20 and 30 years olds freaking out because they have no idea how they’ll ever be able to save up $1 million (or most likely more) for retirement, plus pay of their student loans, buy a home, start a family, and just simply live! So, I thought I would bring on a retirement expert who can shed some light on the most important things we all...


191 Women, Money & Financial Success - Robin Taub, CPA, Speaker & Author

If you’re a long-time listener of the Mo’ Money Podcast, you’ll remember when I had Robin Taub on for episode 32 to talk about her book A Parent’s Guide to Raising Money Smart Kids. Well, that was a few years ago now so I thought it was time to have her back on the show, but to talk about something very different. As I mentioned at the beginning of the show, we bumped into each other at Melissa Leong’s book launch for Happy Go Money and started talking about the different ways both...


190 The Latte Factor (What It Really Means) - John David Mann, Best-Selling Author of The Go-Giver, The Red Circle & The Latte Factor

This is by far one of my favourite interviews on the podcast…ever! For this episode, I chat with John David Mann, and award-winning author whose books have sold more than 3 million copies, including titles such as The Go-Giver with Bob Burg and the New York Times bestseller The Red Circlewith Brandon Webb. For his latest book The Latte Factor, which he co-authored with best-selling author and OG personal finance expert David Bach, they discuss the term that Bach coined several years ago...


189 Credit Card Reward & Travel Tips for Canadians - Barry Choi, Personal Finance & Travel Expert

Can you believe it’s been almost 4 years since Barry Choi from Money We Have on the show? We’ve been friends for years now, and he was guest number 7! Since so much has happened in our lives since that interview, I needed to have him back on the show now that he works full-time for himself as a personal finance & travel expert. As I mentioned at the beginning of this episode, I’ve done a few unofficial meetups with podcast listeners the past few months, and the feedback I got was to have...


188 How to Get Rich by 30 - Lesley-Anne Scorgie, Author & Personal Finance Expert

It was one fateful day when a 17-year-old Lesley-Anne Scorgie went viral because of her financial acumen. Not only did she get featured in newspapers across Canada, she also landed a spot on the Oprah Winfrey show because she aspired to become a millionaire by 25 and was well on her way to reaching that goal. As Lesley-Anne says in our interview together, the Oprah effect is real and her short segment on the show catapulted her career into one Canada’s top money experts today, with four...


187 How Your Money Is Protected at the Bank - Brad Evenson, Director of Communications at CDIC

Have you ever heard from someone that if a bank fails (goes bankrupt), you’ll lose all the money you had their? Because that is 100% false! You see, there’s a little thing called the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) and Brad Evenson, the Director of Communications and Public Affairs of CDIC joins me for this bonus podcast episode to discuss in-depth how all Canadians are protected.

186 Starting a Successful Business with Little to No Money - Nathan Latka, Entrepreneur & Author of How to Be a Capitalist Without Any Capital

For this episode of the show, I interview young entrepreneur Nathan Latka who has released his first book (like…today!). It’s called How to Be a Capitalist Without Any Capital, and it’s his guidebook on how to successfully start a business or side hustle without that much money at the beginning. You see, Nathan has a pretty interesting story. He basically realized that because of the Internet and social media, the possibilities and opportunities for making money were limitless. He’s started...


185 How to Make Work Optional - Tanja Hester, Author of Work Option & Blogger at Our Next Life

I had Tanja Hester from Our Next Life on the show back in November 2017 for episode 133. Back then, Tanja was still an anonymous blogger who hadn’t yet quit her job yet to retire early with her husband. Well, a few months after we recorded that episode she left her job and has been officially retired ever since! Not only that, she finally revealed her full name on her blog and the news literally went viral, being picked up by MarketWatch. Because of this, Tanja has had a very busy retired...
