I've had so many guests on the show over the years to talk about the wealth accumulation stage of investing, but I haven't had any, besides Mike Drak from episode 208 who wrote Victory Lap Retirement, to talk about what happens when you actually retire. What happens when you have to start decumulating your nest egg?
That's why I've got Frederick Vettese on the show for this episode. He is the former Chief Actuary of Morneau Shepell, a major Canadian human resources firm. He's also a frequent contributor to the Globe and Mail on retirement issues. And lastly, he's the author of three books, including his latest book that we talk about in this episode, Retirement Income for Life: Getting More Without Saving More.
Even if retirement is decades away for you, it's so important to know what to expect when it's right around the corner. How do you ensure you don't drain your retirement savings in the first few years? What strategies should you use to decumulate your savings in a sustainable way? And what are some key things to know about enjoying your retirement and the fruits of your labour?

We’ve all heard the statistics. If you’re a woman and you decide to take time off of your career to raise a family, go back to school, or travel the world, it will set you back both professionally and financially. Although it’s not fair, these are the facts. But that shouldn’t scare you from taking that career pause when you need to.
And luckily I have two guests on the show to discuss how to get back into the workforce, and not just get back on track but accelerate your career into an even better, more successful one.
I’ve got Nancy Jensen and Sarah Duenwald on the show to discuss this topic in-depth. They teamed up to found their company, The Swing Shift, and co-author their new book Back to Business, after working with hundreds of women struggling with this exact thing.
Not only that, both Nancy and Sarah experienced this themselves when taking maternity leaves, and that’s what inspired them to come together and create a solution for women so we can see a change in those statistics.

Happy New Year! And welcome back to the Mo’ Money Podcast! After taking a few weeks off to rest and recharge, I am so excited to be back to drop Season 12 of the Mo’ Money Podcast today. Not only that, I thought I’d start with an episode that will get you excited about the future again!
2020 was rough on us all, some more than others, and we’re still in the thick of it. But I’ve got hope for 2021. And when you’ve got hope, you can make plans for better days to come. That’s why I’ve got the wonderful Stephanie Myers and Gillian Batt from Our Freedom Years on the show. I’m a big fan of their YouTube channel, and not only did they achieve financial independence and retire early in their 30s/40s, but they are also Canadian!
I haven’t had many Canadians FIRE people on the show, so this is a big treat. And I sure asked them all the questions I know you would have asked yourself, like what to do with taxes when you’re a nomad, how much to save, how to ensure you won’t run out of money, and does FIRE mean you don’t ever have to work again (since so many people who achieve FIRE seem to continue working?).
I know you’re going to love this episode just as much as I enjoyed recording it. And don’t forget to check out the link below to sign up for their free e-course!
