To wrap up Season 4 of the Mo' Money Podcast, I recorded a special solo episode to share what I've been up to and my plans for the future.

Long description:

I can't believe we've already arrived at the end of Season 4 of the Mo' Money Podcast. With 114 episodes and 2 years of podcasting under my belt, I can honestly say that starting this podcast has hands-down been one of the best decisions I ever made.

To wrap up with season, I thought it was time for another solo episode. So, I took some time last week to lay on my couch therapy-stay and record pretty much anything that came into my head.

I share what it's been like since I quit my full-time job to work for myself. How it's been being a homeowner for almost a year now (spoiler: it's been awesome and expensive). And lastly, I share what I've got coming up for the second half of the year and some ideas I've been considering for Season 5 of the podcast and just my community building efforts at large.

Ideas I've Got for the Future

For instance, would you be interested in a special series on the podcast dedicated to making money and entrepreneurship? I know there are a ton of podcasts out there focused on that already, but I find none of them truly talk about the financial aspects of owning a business or starting a side hustle.

Another idea I had was to start doing mini-meetups in my city of Toronto (and maybe in Vancouver when I'm in town). I love doing my Millennial Money Meetups, but they're a pretty big ordeal and it would be neat to do something a bit smaller and more intimate.

My last idea was maybe start some sort of book club in my Facebook group. Logistically, I'm not exactly sure how to do this besides integrating a Facebook live aspect to it, but I think it would be a great way for us all to learn then chat about different aspects of personal finance.

Just putting that out there, so if you have some opinions or have any other ideas you'd like me to explore, please let me know by tweeting me or emailing me!

A Huge Thank You for Supporting the Podcast!

Aside from me just talking about me for a good 30 minutes, what I really want to express closing out this season is how thankful I am for you listening and subscribing to my podcast. It was a passion project that quickly turned into something real that people binge-listen to! I never thought I could affect or reach people like I am through this podcast, and it's honestly the best feeling in the world to feel that type of strong connection.

It's something I never really felt with just the blog, so seriously a big thank you for supporting the Mo' Money Podcast, and I'm excited to kick-off Season 5 of the show this fall. Make sure to subscribe on iTunes, SoundCloud or YouTube if you haven't already to be updated when Season 5 starts, or sign up to my weekly newsletter to stay in the loop!

Managing your money with your partner doesn't have to be awkward or even difficult, and Talaat & Tai McNeely from His and Her Money share how to do it successfully.

Long description:

For my second to last episode of season 4 of the Mo' Money Podcast, I chat with Talaat and Tai McNeely, America's favourite money couple from His and Her Money. We talk about how they got together and figured out their own financial differences, then what led them to start helping others and sharing their wisdom with the masses through their podcast and YouTube channel.

If you're in a couple, and you have a ton of questions about how to manage your money successfully with your partner, this Talaat and Tai have the answers. They've been together for over a decade and have been through or seen it all. And their advice is on point!

At the end of the end, it really just comes down to open communication and respect. Just like working through other issues in a relationship, you need to listen to your partner, understand where they are coming from, compromise and really tackle those issues as a team.

Do you know what your money operating system is? Hilary Hendershott discusses this, as well as how to empower yourself through your money & navigating divorce in this episode.

Long description: 

This is by far one of my favourite podcast episodes of the season, and it all has to do with how insightful and wise Hilary Hendershott is. Not only does she hold an MBA and CFP (so she knows her stuff!), she has a great story.

At the beginning, she was terrible with her money. Even when she was working as a financial advisor, helping others with their money, she wasn't taking care of hers. When her credit cards got maxed out and she realized she somehow couldn't afford her mortgage payments, that's when she decided to make a drastic change.

She made the decision to take control of her money, start understanding her money operating system (a.k.a. money mindset), and managing her money in a way that worked best with her and her psyche.

Now, she's miles away from where she used to be, and is driven to help other women do the same with their finances.

This is the perfect episode for some major Wednesday Wisdom, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did when I recorded it (and re-listened to it).

If there's anything you can takeaway from this episode, it's that no matter where you are right now financially, that doesn't mean you have to stay there. You too can make a change for the better. You just have to take that first step by making it your top priority, then dedicating the time and effort required to follow through with a solid financial plan.

Wise Words from Hilary

I believe you can be financially free.
Believe in your economic independence.
I believe you are always free to imagine, design and create wealth in your life.
I believe that wealth is well-being. I believe having money creates options.
I believe when you are unconstrained, anything is possible.
I believe in bootstrapping and micro lending and entrepreneurship.
I believe in a world where everyone has enough.

Want to learn how to reach financial independence, so you can sit by the beach and do whatever you want? Well, it's not exactly easy but it is absolutely possible. I chat with Pauline Paquin, blogger at Reach Financial Independence, to discuss how she was able to leave the 9 to 5 world, work remotely in Guatemala, and live a life most of us could only dream of. 

Long description:

Ever dreamed quitting your 9 to 5 and working remotely from your laptop in paradise? Sounds like a dream, but it can actually become your reality...if you follow in Pauline Paquin's footsteps.

Pauline has figured out the secret sauce to living a financially independent life, like so many of us fantasize about on a day-to-day basis. But it wasn't just luck, and no she didn't win the lottery.

She started out by graduating university debt-free and investing her savings into a rental property. The income from the rental helped pay for her to travel abroad, but she knew she needed do something extra to not always live on a shoestring budget. So, she started freelance writing and eventually started her own blog — Reach Financial Independence.

Since then, she's also started another blog called Make Money Your Way, and has bought two other money-making blogs — Frugaling and Savvy Scot.

Pauline also shares one of her big inspirations and motivators in her life — Ramit Sethi from I Will Teach You to Be Rich. One of the biggest lessons she's learned from Ramit's teachings is that you should adopt an abundance money mindset instead of a scarcity mindset. This essentially means stopping the thinking of "I can't afford that" and changing it to "How can I afford that? What do I need to do in my life to reach that goal."

Having the right mindset when it comes to money is a big key to reaching your goals, no matter what they are, and I'll admit I absolutely have the same money mindset when it comes to my life.

At a certain point in your personal finance journey, you'll realize that there's nothing left to cut out of your budget and you're living as frugally as you can. At that point, it's either time to look for a higher paying job or joining a number of others by getting yourself a side hustle. In this episode I chat with Nick Loper, founder of Side Hustle Nation, about how to get a side hustle and how he was able to turn his love for side hustles into his full-time gig.

Long description:

It seems like everyone has a side hustle these days, or is thinking about starting one. Which is why I thought the perfect guest to have on the Mo' Money Podcast would be Nick Loper from Side Hustle Nation. I met him after I spoke at FinCon's Ignite last year, and I was in total awe of his podcast and the insanely loyal audience he grew. But the best thing is, he's seriously the nicest, humblest guy!

Now, I've kind of always had a side hustle. It started with being a teleprompter operator for the news, PAing on film sets, then eventually I started this blog to see if I can earn some money. Well, after almost 6 years, I was able to finally turn this side hustle into my full-time hustle, so if you're ever wondering whether it's worth it to start a side hustle and spend some of your extra hours on building a side business — just try it. There's no harm in trying a few things out and seeing if they work. And there's no shame in failure as long as you walk away with a lesson learned.

In this episode, Nick also shares his personal story with getting his first side hustle and how he eventually became an online entrepreneur teaching others about how side hustles could take them to the next level with their financials. As I always tell people, at a certain point, you'll find with your budget that there's nothing left to cut out. And at that point, it's time to start looking at other ways to earn some extra income.
