I chat with popular personal finance personality Kerry Taylor from Squawkfox about how she got into the personal finance sphere and why she's a big advocate of the second-hand economy.

Long description:  

Kerry Taylor's blog Squawkfox was one of the first personal finance blogs I stumbled upon when I was starting my personal finance journey in my early 20s. And now, so many years later I got the chance to chat with her on the podcast all about her own journey from computer science student, to living in rural British Columbia, to moving back to her hometown of Toronto, to now being a constant voice in The Globe & Mail and CBC.

One of the big reasons I really wanted to have Kerry on the show was because she has an awesome sense of style, but she doesn't break the bank to stay fashionable. She's a huge advocate of the second-hand economy, and it all started with trying to save money when buying clothes for her daughter. When she discovered that there were a number of consignment shops and Facebook groups dedicated to buying and selling quality second-hand goods, she got hooked. And pretty much convinced me (and you once you listen) to start taking advantage of the second-hand economy too!

Thanks so much Kerry for chatting with me and sharing your insight and story with me!

Want to learn how to set yourself up for financial success before graduating university? Listen to my interview with podcast listener Allison about how she'll be able to graduate almost debt-free.

Long description:

If you want to set yourself (or your kids) up for success, it is crucial to understand the consequences of taking on too much student debt. Yes, it is one way to be able to afford a post-secondary education which in turn could lead to a job with a good salary...but it could also hurt your chances of living a life that's not tied down to years of debt-repayment.

For this episode, I chat with one of my podcast listeners Allison from Manitoba, and she shares what she's done so when she graduates she'll only have a few small amount of debt to pay off. This includes her working year-round and during the summers, living extremely frugally, and not using all the student loans she was granted.

She is one financially savvy 21 year old, let me tell you. And I know from personal experience because she did pay attention to her finances during university, she'll have a much easier time after graduation.

Being debt-free (or close to it) after graduating will not only offer you more freedom and opportunities, but you'll realize that you've already got some great financial habits. You'll also be able to achieve some of your financial goals sooner and build wealth quicker thanks to the magic of compound interest.

One resource Allison mentioned a few times, and inspired her to take on this frugal lifestyle, was Mr. Money Mustache. He's actually Canadian (woot woot!) and is mentioned by listeners all the time, so make sure to check out his stuff!

I also mentioned in this episode that I interviewed my sister who graduated university almost a year ago. Here's the video of our interview (and she said she was nervous to do a Facebook live stream with me, ha!).
