Oh my goodness, what a week last week was! But I’ll get to that in a bit. I’ve got one hell of a guest this week though. Jackie Porter, a financial planner, author and speaker, joins me on the show to share her incredible story of getting into financial planning but also to discuss her book Single by Choice or Chance.
Over the years of having the podcast, I’ve gotten so many questions from single people asking what should they do differently with their money? What are some important considerations they should be aware of? Jackie shares her wisdom because not only has she gone through it herself but she’s also worked with numerous clients over the years.
Ok, back to last week. Not only was the launch of Season 11 my best ever (I got the highest amount podcast episode downloads on launch day than any other day in the history of my podcast!) but I have some very exciting news to share…I passed!
As I shared at the end of the episode, I’ve been studying all summer for the Canadian Securities Course. It’s broken down into two parts, and last week I passed the first exam. And it was tough! But it feels so good to be over and done with. Now, onto the second exam this October. Thanks so much to everyone who sent me good vibes, I really appreciate it! Now continue to send them over to me so I pass the next one!

Well, that was a much-needed break that I needed from the podcast…how about you? This year has been intense to say the least. And it’s still going. I ended Season 10 on what I thought was a hopeful note. Amongst all the chaos we’re experiencing, I do believe there is also a lot of light.
With that, I’ve been recording guests for Season 11 all summer to make this my best season yet. Full of inspiring interviews, diverse voices, and actionable takeaways we can all use to turn these uncertain times into that wake-call many of us need to do more and live more intentional and positive lives.
That’s why I wanted to kick off this season with a very inspiring and positive guest, Bob Burg, author of The Go-Giver. As I shared in this episode, I’d previously heard of his book, but it wasn’t until I did a call-out on Twitter about what everyone’s favourite personal finance books were that I was introduced to Bob. Although it’s not a personal finance book in the traditional sense, it is now one of my go-to recommendations for anyone who is struggling in the areas of growing in their career and planning out a path for personal or professional success.
No joke, I read this book in maybe two sittings. Then I got my husband to read it right after. I loved it. I really did. It hit home on so many fronts, it almost felt like I was meant to read it at that specific point in time.
We talk about a few different sections of the book in this episode, so hopefully, you’ll absorb some of the key takeaways I got from reading it, but of course, I highly recommend grabbing a copy too!
