In this episode, I talk about my experience as a missionary in Africa at 18 and sponsoring a child in my 20s to give back.

Long episode description:

Hello and welcome to another solo podcast episode with yours truly. I know in episode 1 I said I would just being doing interviewed shows, but what can I say, I love to talk and I’ve got a lot to say. In this episode which I am super excited to share with you, I dive into my experience as a missionary and sponsoring a child to give back. 

I believe giving back and donating to charities is incredibly important, especially when it comes to personal finance. When we think about money management though, it’s usually the last thing we think of after saving, investing and making more money.

Giving back has always been a big part of my life, starting with my childhood in the Catholic church. Participating in giving back through my church’s programs evolved into me deciding to go to Africa at 18 to do some good overseas. It was definitely an enlightening experience, good and bad, so make sure to listen to find out what I think about it a decade later.

I also had a sponsor child for a period in my early 20s. I actually decided to get a sponsor child when I first moved out of my parents and was making my lowest salary to date. But even though I was at my poorest, I knew that as a financially independent woman I needed to still set aside some money to help others.

Now in my late 20s, I have a very different outlook on giving back because of these two experiences. I’m still all for helping others, especially financially, but I just choose to go about it a different way than I did when I was younger. Since this is a pretty personal episode, and I share things on there that I’ve never talked about before, I would love to get your feedback. Let me know what you think, or better yet share a story you have about giving back in the show notes.

Quin Sandler, CEO of fitness technology company Plantiga, and I talk about being a serial entrepreneur and what that means for his budget, retirement plans and career aspirations.

Long episode description:

My guest on this podcast episode can be summed up in one word: hustler. Quin Sandler, who I was introduced to by my husband Josh, is one motivating character. He’s an entrepreneur and is currently the co-founder and CEO of the startup Plantiga. In this episode we talk about how he’s created several different businesses including a tutoring business and a web design and branding business, and how that led him to his new venture in wearable sports technology.  We also dive into how he budgets (or does he?), what he does to supplement his income when money is scarce and what his thoughts are on retirement.

We mentioned a ton of things on the show, so I’ve organized everything to make it easy for you below. Thanks for listening and make sure to let me know what you think about this episode or my show by leaving me a review on iTunes orStitcher!

BrokeGirlRich blogger Melissa Bondar and I discuss the sacrifices you have to make to follow your passion and work in the arts industry, while paying off debt and living on a very tight budget.

Long episode description:

I was really looking forward to interviewing Melissa Bondar, the blogger behind BrokeGirlRich. Not only were we roommates for FinCon 2014 in New Orleans, but her story is very close to my heart. We both went to art school in university, her for theatre and me for film. But instead of pursuing a career in my field like Melissa did, I kind of chickened out and just ran in the complete opposite direction.  No regrets of course, and looking back I can say confidently that the film industry and me would not have been a good fit. That being said, I think it is so cool that Melissa pursued her dream of working in theatre and now she has an awesome job as a stage manager in New York City! You go girl!

Melissa and I talked about a ton of stuff on the show, and I’ve listed some of her blog posts that we talked about below. For anyone who is thinking about working in the arts, or is already working in that field and needs a good blog to read about being smart with money, make sure to check out Melissa’s blog and follow her onTwitter!

Personal finance author (Stop Over-thinking Your Money!) and TV personality Preet Banerjee and I talk about his journey from race car driver to leading Canadian financial expert.

Long episode description:

Can I just start off with saying how amazing Preet sounds on my podcast? He puts my “radio voice” to shame! I should have known, he is a podcaster and TV personality after all. I’ve got to say, this is probably one of my favourite podcast episodes (not to bash any of the episodes I’ve done up until this point, they are all amazing too!). Preet is such a cool, genuine guy and it was so nice to hear his story.  I mean, how many people do you know who went to school to be a brain surgeon, then pursued a career in race car driving and ended up becoming a well-known financial expert on TV? I guess never having a 5-year plan might be the way to go?

Before I get to the important links and book giveaway, I’ve got to hang my head in shame because I still haven’t crossed off 1) get a will and 2) get life and disability insurance off my list. To be fair, I almost did. I made an appointment with a lawyer to get a will done, but had to cancel and just haven’t rescheduled it. But I will get both of these things done before Christmas, mark my words Preet! And you better too…I’m talking to you blog readers and podcast listeners!

In this episode, I interview Wealthing Like Rabbits author Robert R. Brown about how he got into the personal finance world, what inspired him to write this cheeky book and what it means to wealth like a rabbit.

Long episode description:

It was so great to chat with Robert Brown in this episode, the author of the personal finance book Wealthing Like Rabbits (or it’s original title and my personal favourite, Sex, Zombies and Compound Interest). I was able to review the book on the blogback in November, so it was fun to be able to chat with Robert about some of my favourite passages and find out more about the man behind the book. 

As mentioned at the beginning of this episode, I will be giving away a copy ofWealthing Like Rabbits so you can enjoy it just as much as I did. Make sure to enter below! And as always, below are some interesting links that we mentioned during the show that you may want to check out as well.
