I have another returning guest joining me on the podcast today to share more about his new book and his rule of thumb for saving for retirement. Frederick Vettesse is back on the podcast to talk about his new book, The Rule of 30: A Better Way to Save for Retirement, and the different approach he took to write this book as opposed to his others. 

Frederick Vettesse is the former chief actuary of Lifeworks and a best-selling author of books all about retirement. He’s also a regular contributor for the Globe and Mail. He first appeared on the More Money podcast in episode 262 where he chatted about how to not run out of money during retirement.

In this episode, Frederick explains what the rule of 30 is for retirement, including how much to save and invest at certain ages and stages in your life and is it ever too late to start. We also talk about investing options including if real estate is still a good investment for your future. Another important topic we cover is planning for the best-case scenario along with the unexpected and inevitable changes that come from getting older including potential job loss and declining health.

This week’s episode is FULL of so many interesting topics including, debt, FIRE, privilege and so much more. I’m so excited to welcome author, Paris Woods to the podcast to share how we can all learn from her mistakes in her new book, The Black Girl’s Guide to Financial Freedom. 

Paris Woods is a lifelong educator, first-generation and two-time college graduate of Harvard University. She’s currently completing her doctorate at the University of Texas at Austin. In her new book, The Black Girl’s Guide to Financial Freedom, Paris teaches readers how to live an abundant life now and continue to do so in the future through her simple personal finance principles.

In this episode, Paris shares her approach to FIRE, why she’s so passionate about educating the black community about finance and why debt is the number one obstacle to your financial goals. I loved reading Paris’s book because it felt like having a chat with your best friend and I hope this episode leaves you with the same feeling!

Like myself, Alyssa wants to make financial literacy more easily accessible and understandable. I can’t wait for you to listen to this one!

This season on the podcast we’ve been exploring alternative ways to invest your money and in this episode, we’re diving into the Canadian art world. To help navigate how to invest in art is Rob Cowley, a Canadian Art Specialist and the President and Co-Founder of Cowley Abbott. 

Rob Cowley is a Canadian Art Specialist who first started as a clerk at an auction house in Toronto in 2000. In 2013, Rob and his coworker Lydia Abbott set out on their own and founded the auction house, Cowley Abbott. Cowley Abbott bridges the gap between traditional art auction services and the online fine art marketplace. Cowley Abbott’s live and online auctions have included headline-grabbing and record-setting works while providing Canadians with the expertise they need when it comes to purchasing art.

In this episode, Rob shares how the pandemic caused a boom in the Canadian fine art market. He also answers my many questions about how this sort of investment works in terms of depreciation and the other costs involved in buying art. Rob also gives a great explanation about what exactly NFTs are and how they protect and benefit digital artists.

This episode is full of great insider knowledge on the art world and how its become more accessible to newbie art investors, which is great news for anyone looking into alternative investments!

Calling all budding entrepreneurs, today’s bonus episode is for you! We often hear from the founders and CEOs from the U.S., but how different is it to start and find funding for your startup in Canada? The answer to that and so much more is covered in today’s episode. Joining me on the podcast is the co-founder & CEO of oxio, a Canadian home internet provider that offers fair and affordable pricing (and the one I currently use for my internet in case you're wondering). 

Marc-André Campagna is from Baie-Comeau, Quebec and as I mentioned is the CEO and co-founder of oxio. After helping his parents move and set up their internet, it sparked his interest in developing a more affordable internet provider that put Canadians' needs first. This led him to drop out of Law School at Laval University to start Accès Télécom (now oxio) along with his friend Francis Careau.

In this episode, Marc-André shares what it was like to launch a successful startup in Canada including finding investors, participating in an incubator program, and understanding the importance of networking. He also explains how oxio is shaking things up in the telecom industry by putting the customer experience first and why Canada needs to move away from oligopolies.

It seems like every other week there’s a new investment craze and before you can wrap your head around it everyone on social media is already on to the next one. In this week’s episode, I’m joined by a veteran of the investment industry to help navigate through all the investing noise. Gil Baumgarten is the Founder, President, and CEO of Segment Wealth Management and the author of FOOLISH: How Investors Get Worked Up and Worked Over by the System

Gil Baumgarten has been a part of the investment industry for over 37 years and has been the multi-year recipient of the Top 1,200 Financial Advisors in America distinction by Barron’s. He started his career on Wall Street in the 1980s but found it routinely emphasized its own interests over the clients. In 2010, Gil left the brokerage world to start Segment Wealth Management, a fiduciary firm where the interests of the client and the firm could align. He launched his first book, FOOLISH: How Investors Get Worked Up and Worked Over by the System last spring.

In this episode Gil pulls back the curtain on Wall Street and why he ultimately decided to leave and do things on his own terms. Gil shares why a lack of understanding about short-term investing is what leads to major losses and ending up in high tax brackets. I also ask Gil what’s the difference he’s seen from working with high-net-worth individuals and what we can learn from their investment strategies.

Were you one of the many people who adopted a pet during the pandemic? You wouldn’t be alone because the number of pet adoptions significantly rose during the last couple of years. My husband and I have also been toying with the idea of adopting a pet, which is why I’m so excited about today’s episode.

Today’s episode is all about the real cost of owning a pet, including whether it's worth it or not to get pet insurance. To help me with this topic is Katie Blakeley, Head of Pet Insurance at MetLife. Prior to joining the MetLife team through acquisition, Katie was the CEO of PetFirst Pet Insurance. She had been with the organization since it was founded in 2004 serving in a variety of roles including Marketing Director and Vice President of Business Development.

Prior to joining PetFirst, Katie worked in the thoroughbred racing industry. Katie lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her husband Chris, daughters Maddie and Charlotte, and terrier-mix (Franklin).

In this episode, Katie talks about how much money should you be putting aside for monthly pet costs, why you should consider pet insurance, and how much you could expect to pay for it. I also ask Katie all about why breeds and pre-existing conditions matter when it comes to pet insurance rates. This episode is great if you’re already a pet owner or you’ve been considering getting a furry friend (like me) too.

If you’ve ever been curious about what it takes to become a CFP, how to get your foot in the door of the Canadian financial industry, or how to set yourself for a successful retirement in Canada...then this episode is going to be just what you've been looking for. In this episode, I’m joined by Ryan Goldsman, the President of Monkey Credits and the author of Elmer's Nine & Dine: A Guide to Retirement Planning.

Right now the investing space has been taken over with talk of cryptocurrencies and NFTs, but those aren't the only alternative investment options for investors. Heck, there are some alternative investments that even include physical things attached to them...like wine! That’s why I've got Atul Tiwari, CEO of Cult Wines Americas, back on the show to discuss all the ins and outs of investing in a portfolio of fine wine (and yes, you can actually drink the wine if you want too!).

You may remember Atul from episode 170, when he was CEO of Vanguard Canada. Back then, he came on the show to share how he helped pioneer ETF investing in Canada and some of the benefits of index funds. Now, he's in a very different role, focused on educating and helping investors diversify their portfolios even more by investing in fine wine. Cult Wines originated in the U.K. in 2007, and Atul has taken on the task of bringing the company over to North America, making wine investing more accessible to Canadian investors.

In this episode, Atul goes over everything from what’s the return on investment with fine wines, how to build a strong portfolio, fee structure, as well as where the wine is physically stored. As someone who enjoys a glass of wine (but rarely spends more than $15 on a bottle), I wanted to know what constitutes a fine wine, and are there wines that are bought without the intention of drinking it? If you’re keen to find out the answers and more about fine wine investing, then you’ll love this episode!

This week’s episode has a little bit of everything, including talking about budgeting, investing, and defining success on your own terms. Joining me on the show today is The Budget Mom aka Kumiko Love, whose new book My Money My Way: Taking Back Control of Your Financial Life is such a great read that is chock-full of practical finance tips. 

In 2015, Kumiko found herself in $77,000 worth of debt while making a yearly salary of only $24,000 as a single mom. She managed to pay off the debt in record time, while also sharing the journey on her blog, The Budget Mom. She now has 2 million highly devoted followers that love her personally designed budget planners. Her new best-selling book, My Money My Way: Taking Back Control of Your Financial Life, shares her story, as well as others to show that you too can take control of your money.

Kumiko wants people to ask themselves once they finish the book if their glass is half empty or half full when the correct answer is actually that it’s refillable. I loved having Kumiko on the show because she is such a positive and inspiring woman who wants everyone to succeed by doing money their own way.

January 2021 marked the 1-year anniversary of the Gamestop stock going viral, which led to the birth of meme stocks. To help make sense of what happened during that craze and the time since is my guest, Spencer Jakab whose new book “The Revolution That Wasn't: GameStop, Reddit, and the Fleecing of Small Investors” tells the story of what led to those events and what it says about investing in today’s social media culture.

Spencer Jakab is an author, award-winning financial journalist, and a former top-rated stock analyst at Credit Suisse. He also edits the Wall Street Journal’s “Heard on the Street” segment. 

In today’s episode, Spencer talks about the rise of people turning to social media for investing advice and the danger of confusing investing with speculating or get-rich-quick schemes. Spencer also explains the initial purpose of the takeover of the Gamestop stocks and why it only made the rich richer. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Spencer and hearing his take on Reddit threads like r/wallstreetbets and financial influencers, and I know you will too!

If you’ve been a listener for any amount of time then you know investing is one of my favourite topics. I’ve talked a lot about investing in stocks and index funds, but I haven't really tackled investing in real estate...until today’s episode! Joining me on the podcast is entrepreneur and real estate investor Griffin Milks.  Griffin is 25 years old and has already bought 15 houses and flipped 3 of them. After landing a government job after graduating from the University of Ottawa, where he studied business and commerce, Griffin started his YouTube channel that focuses on personal finance, stock, and real estate investing. As his YouTube channel and real estate portfolio grew, he was able to leave his 9-to-5 and become a full-time entrepreneur. 

In this episode, I pick Griffin’s mind about how he’s been able to build up a real estate portfolio at such a young age, and what his long-term strategy is. Griffin also shares his investing philosophy for building wealth and why he advocates for taking your time to do your research instead of getting sucked into the clickbaity world of TikTok and Reddit.

Welcome back to a new season of the podcast! I hope you’ve had a nice winter break and like me are ready to get this year started. To kick off Season 14, I’m joined by author and personal finance reporter Erica Alini, whose new book Money Like You Mean is the perfect new year read. 

Erica Alini lives in Toronto and is the incoming personal finance reporter for The Globe & Mail after being a financial journalist at Global News for several years. She was also the face and creator of the Global News' Money123 personal finance series, which aired on Global National every Saturday evening for nearly two years.

In this episode, we cover so many topics that Erica writes about in her new book, Money Like You Mean It, such as the trouble with buy now, pay later apps, renting vs. owning, how to increase your income, and why the pandemic is partially the reason behind the growing popularity in investing.

It's the season finale for Season 13 of the More Money Podcast, can you believe it? Soon, we’ll all be ringing in the new year and hopefully see 2022 be the fresh start we all need.

Joining me again on the podcast for this very special episode is the international best-selling author behind one of my all-time favourite personal finance books Millionaire Teacher, Andrew Hallam. Andrew is on the podcast today to talk about his new book Balance, which explores how to spend and invest in happiness and why our definition of success needs to be redefined. 

Andrew is a speaker, author, and personal finance writer. He’s given personal finance talks in more than 32 countries but still finds time to travel the world, explore jungles and climb volcanoes with his wife. His new book, Balance, is a combination of personal anecdotes and behavioural scientific studies that aim to share how we can get happier and wealthier. Balance is available for pre-order now but will be available on January 18th, 2022. 

I loved having Andrew back on the podcast and being able to chat about investing and why we are striving for things that we don’t actually want. Our chat was the perfect way to end this year and look toward the future. I hope that you have a wonderful holiday and a happy new year and I’ll be back in mid-January 2022!

We all know I’m a hardcore index fund investor and love to talk about the benefits of passive investing for building long-term wealth. But I’m also often asked if I invest in individual stocks, to which I answer "Yes, I do actually."

One of the ways that I learn about potential stocks to invest in is Motley Fool Canada, and Chief Investment Advisor Iain Butler joins me on today’s bonus episode of the podcast to talk stocks in-depth.

We also talk about the feelings of FOMO when it comes to the growing popularity of NFTS, meme stocks, and cryptocurrencies, and why Motley Fool Canada is a great place to learn more about how to invest in today's market with their daily updates and research.

As the podcast starts to wind down before a short winter break, I’m so glad that before the end of the season I get to share today’s episode. Today we’re tackling some important topics like privilege, money trauma, and how to build generational wealth as a child of immigrants. To help navigate these topics is my guest and fellow Accredited AFCC® Parween Mander. 

Parween is a South Asian money expert and founder of the Wealthy Wolfe. She holds the Accredited Financial Counselor Canada® designation and is also a certified Trauma of Money Facilitator. She’s on a mission to provide honest and relatable financial coaching for women of colour.

Parween shares how her money journey began at 16 and why privilege is often a big part of people’s money journey that isn't acknowledged. There needs to be more diversity in this industry and I’m glad Parween is one of the amazing voices that’s spreading that message and her financial expertise.

As someone who decided to sell her townhouse and buy a new house in Toronto this year, I can vouch for how crazy the Canadian housing market is right now. Although my experience is specifically in Toronto, talking to people across the country every single day...I know that people have similar experiences from coast to coast.

Since real estate has become such a hot topic, especially because of the pandemic, I wanted to gain some further insight into why the housing market has exploded in the past two years and hear some predictions for what we can expect in the future. To provide that insight, I've got John Webster, President & CEO of Scotiabank Mortgage Corporation, joining me for this episode.

John has 30+ years of experience in mortgage lending, and in addition to being the President & CEO of Scotiabank Mortgage Corporation, he's also the Head of the Real Estate Secured Lending Unit at Scotiabank which includes Scotia Mortgage Authority and Home Financing Solutions. John was previously the President & CEO of Maple Trust Company which was purchased by Scotiabank in 2006. He is also a founding member of the Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP) now called Mortgage Professionals Canada, and was inducted into the Canadian Mortgage Hall of Fame in 2009.

In this episode, John shares how the pandemic put pressure on the housing market and why the demand for housing will continue to be greater than the supply into the future. John also shares how lenders have had to adapt to this new normal over the past 18 months and the digital products and services they’ve introduced since the start of the pandemic. I love talking about real estate and especially when I can get an insider perspective on how we can best navigate the market, so I am very excited to share today’s episode with you!

In today’s episode, we’re being treated to a history lesson on index funds from my guest who wrote the book all about it. Robin Wigglesworth’s new book, Trillions: How a Band of Wall Street Renegades Invented the Index Fund and Changed Finance Forever, gives a broader history of index investing and how that has influenced the current markets. 

Robin Wigglesworth is an author and the global finance correspondent at the Financial Times since 2008. He focuses on the biggest trends reshaping markets, investing, and finance across the world by sharing long-form features, profiles, and columns. Robin’s new book is a fascinating look at the financial history of index funds and why it was the invention that Wall Street initially never wanted. 

In this episode, Robin shares how he fell into financial journalism and how his work allows him to be paid to learn. I was excited to talk to Robin because I thoroughly enjoyed his book, which is now going on my list as one of my favourite investing books, especially if you're a die-hard index investor like myself.

Being single shouldn’t have to mean that you can’t achieve all your financial goals, like owning your own home or retiring early. That’s why this week I’m talking with Ardelle Harrison who wrote a book all about how to be financially independent and why we should plan to be, even if we’re not currently single.

Ardelle’s book “Bank on Yourself: Why Every Woman Should Plan Financially To be Single, Even If She's Not” was spurred by her interest in personal finance and out of the necessity of wanting to travel, pay for post-secondary education, and purchase a property. Ardelle is now a retired teacher and has been able to achieve all of her financial goals without relying on a partner. Ardelle’s book explains the importance of knowing the ins and out of your finances, despite your marital status, and how to best plan for your financial future.

Ardelle shares how she’s handled the critics in her life who thought her financial goals were unattainable and why you need to find a team, personal and professional that can help you with your goals. This is a great episode for anyone no matter your age or what your relationship status is to know that even if you’ve never done something doesn’t mean you can never do it.
