’ve been following A Purple Life on Twitter for a while now. So, when I saw her tweet about finally quitting her job because she’d reached her financial independence number of half a million dollars this summer, I knew I needed to have her on the show to share her story!

Purple (that’s what I’ll call her to keep things simple) started her personal finance blog back in 2015 when she was only 25 to document her journey of becoming fi...

I almost never slide into anyone’s DMs, but if I do…it’s to beg them to be on my podcast. So when I saw some news articles online talk about Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments, and the effects of the $70,000 minimum wage increase he implemented 5 years ago (a story that went viral globally!), I thought this was my chance to just ask and see what happens.

And it worked! Not only that, Dan has since written a book called Worth It all...

Ask and you shall receive! Having a guest on to talk about starting a family and what to do with your finances has been a popular request from listeners, so I’m excited to finally share this episode!

I of course thought of having Shannon Lee Simmons on the show to talk about this. Not only is she an amazing guest (listen to her on episode 151 and episode 184), she’s also a mom and offers baby-proofing your finances services as part...

Oh my goodness, what a week last week was! But I’ll get to that in a bit. I’ve got one hell of a guest this week though. Jackie Porter, a financial planner, author and speaker, joins me on the show to share her incredible story of getting into financial planning but also to discuss her book Single by Choice or Chance.

Over the years of having the podcast, I’ve gotten so many questions from single people asking what should they do d...

Well, that was a much-needed break that I needed from the podcast…how about you? This year has been intense to say the least. And it’s still going. I ended Season 10 on what I thought was a hopeful note. Amongst all the chaos we’re experiencing, I do believe there is also a lot of light.

With that, I’ve been recording guests for Season 11 all summer to make this my best season yet. Full of inspiring interviews, diverse voices, and ...

Hello wonderful podcast listener! This is my final episode of Season 10 of the Mo’ Money Podcast, and I want to end this season by discussing something very important to me and quite honestly the human race right now. There are global protests both online and offline to fight against the systemic racism that exists in Canada, the U.S., and the rest of the world.

It’s 2020, and despite all the progress and innovation we’ve made as a...

We're here! This is it! We've arrived at episode 243, the last interview episode of Season 10 of the Mo' Money Podcast...and my 5-year anniversary of starting this podcast! It is actually insane that I started this show half a decade ago, have interviewed hundreds of guests, and am still going.

I do want to acknowledge that things have been very difficult in the world right now. I have a solo podcast episode that I will...

Meredith is the founder of FinePoint, a leadership and professional development company focused on training women on bragging, a systemic issues issue she hopes to eradicate. She is also an entrepreneur, media expert and freelance writer who has written...

Money influences us all in different ways. Our childhoods and backgrounds specifically have a big impact on how we think, feel and manage money later in life. But ultimately, money is just a tool. It’s up to us to decide how to use it to write our own money story.

And my guest Tara Falcone knows this all too well. As she shares in this episode, she grew up in a low-income household in which money was scarce, compelling her to start...

It’s been way too long since I first had Doug Hoyes, licensed insolvency trustee and co-founder of Hoyes Michalos, on the show! I’m talking years! He was first on the show to talk about consumer proposals and bankruptcies back in May 2016 for episode 49, and he’s back to talk about things to consider if you’re dealing with mounting debt during this pandemic.

Not only that, but he is now also an author with his book Straight Talk on...

Many Canadians are feeling the financial effects of the pandemic and as a response the federal government as launched several financial relief programs to help out.

If you’re a longtime listener of the Mo’ Money Podcast, then you’ll remember that Preet was one of my first ever gu...

Is right now a good time to invest? Yes! But also...so was a 6 months ago, a year ago, 10 years ago (you get the picture).

Remember this famous Chinese proverb: 

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

– Chinese Proverb

The same goes for investing! Don't try to time the market, just get into the market and stay there. One of the best things I ever did was start investing when I thought it ...

Have you ever watched the show Ballers with Dwayne Johnson? I know, that doesn’t sound like the type of show I’d watch (I know nothing about sports!), but my husband was watching it one night and told me it was about an ex-NFL player who becomes a financial planner. Now that’s my kind of show!

Well, cut to present day and I have basically a real-life “baller” on the podcast! Jedidiah Collins played for the NFL for seven seasons, an...

Life is crazy sometimes. Back in 2009, when I was struggling to find a full-time job after university thanks to the Great Recession, I got an on-call job as a teleprompter operator for Global News thanks to my dad putting a good word in for me (he’d worked there for over 20 years).

It was honestly a god send because it meant I could earn a little money, pay off my student loan and start saving to eventually move out of my parent’s ...

I can’t believe it’s been over 2 years since I’ve had Chris Guillebeau on the show to promote his book Side Hustle, and of course to share his expertise about side hustles. Well, he’s back with a brand-new book, and this time his first work of fiction, called The Money Tree.

This book is actually pretty timely, since it focuses on characters dealing with some tough times financially, so you’ll definitely be able to relate to the st...
