I discuss the biggest money matters for millennials, such as student loan debt, unemployment, going back to school, and buying a house with personal finance columnist Rob Carrick from The Globe and Mail.

Long episode description:

I was incredibly nervous to interview Rob Carrick from The Globe and Mail for this podcast episode. I’ve been reading his words for years and when it comes to personal finance, he really knows his stuff. But since Rob is such an awesome guy, when I cornered him at the Canadian Personal Finance Conference this past fall and begged him to be on my podcast, he was kind enough to say yes. 

Highlights from this Episode

I love this episode so much because we talked about one of my favourite topics — millennial money matters. As a millennial who’s mission it is to help other millennials understand the core concepts of personal finance so they can take control of their lives and prosper, well it was more than a treat to talk to someone as passionate about educating Generation Y as I am.

We start off with discussing two of the biggest downfalls of post-secondary students: budgeting and taking on student loans. The facts are that students don’t budget (hey, I didn’t even know what a budget was when I was in university) and they take on student loans without truly understanding what it means to be indebted. It’s no surprise that most university grads are drowning in debt and don’t know how to manage their money.

On top of that, many students are going to university because they believe that’s the right step to take in order to have a successful career down the road. Unfortunately, that’s just not the case anymore, and many graduates are having a hard time finding a job in their field and have to get a professional certificate for an applied skill just to get their foot in the door (myself included).

Another big topic we discussed was housing. I wrote a lot about my experience house hunting in Toronto last year, but in the end I backed off and chose to continue renting instead because it just didn’t look like a good investment. It may have been 10 years ago, maybe even 5, but that just isn’t the case anymore. It was for Generation X and the Baby Boomers, but I agree with Rob in believing that more millennials need to proceed with caution when it comes to investing in property.
