That’s a wrap on season 12 of the More Money podcast! I can’t believe that I’ve been recording this podcast for 6 years, which leads me to say a HUGE thank you to all my listeners, new and old of this podcast. It’s because of you that I’ve been able to continue to grow in both knowledge and confidence and host amazing guests on each episode. Today’s final episode is a solo one, I wanted to do a round-up of all that was discussed this season, as well as what's new in my business and personal life.
I love being able to have an episode where I can just update and chat with all of you about what's been going behind the scenes in my life. I wanted to share how my 2021 has been and some plans I have going forward. I’m looking forward to my summer break and finally being able to see and hug my family and friends in Vancouver. You can always keep up to date with what I’m doing on my Instagram or Twitter and don't forget I have a Youtube channel, which I will still be posting to this summer, so be sure to follow me there. I’ll be back in the fall with brand new episodes, but until then enjoy today’s episode and have a safe (and vaccinated) summer!

Today is the penultimate episode of season 12 of the More Money Podcast, can you believe it? In today’s episode, I’m joined by Allison Baggerly from Inspired Budget to discuss all things budgeting. Allison is a blogger, influencer, podcast host, and the founder of Inspired Budget blog and now podcast!
Allison started Inspired Budget in 2017 when she was still an elementary school teacher with 10 years of experience. In 2019 she was able to go full-time with her business and share her combined passion for teaching and finances to help others learn how to start budgeting. She has built a community of over 119,000 Instagram followers that turn to her for budgeting advice and inspiration to take control of their finances.
In this episode, we discuss Allison’s money journey, which started when she decided to explore budgets in preparation for the arrival of her firstborn son. We also discuss the importance of mental health in regards to money management and how budgeting is not one-size-fits-all, and how her business accommodates that. Since this episode was recorded Alison has launched her new podcast, Inspired Budget (check it out!).

For the final week of Season 12, I've got not one, not two, but three amazing episodes to share with you before I go on summer break. And for the first episode this week, we’re talking about sustainable investing and financial feminism! To discuss this topic with me, I am joined by an expert in the field (and a fellow Jessica) Jessica Robinson. She is an expert in sustainable finance and has over 15 years of experience in the industry. Her career has taken her all over the world resulting in quite the résumé.
Jessica is a global expert in sustainable finance and the Founder and Managing Director of Moxie Future — the world’s first insights, education, and community platform empowering women as responsible, sustainable, and impact investors. She also has a newly published book, Financial Feminism: A Woman’s Guide To Investing For a Sustainable Future.
In this episode, she talks about what sustainable investing actually means and how it goes deeper than solely investing in green energy. We also chat about how 2020 gave a good indicator to investing skeptics about what kind of returns you can expect from adding sustainable investments to your portfolio, and finally how not to be fooled by greenwashing in the industry.

Like I mentioned in my last More Money episode (ep. 288), today I’m sharing another bonus episode and we’re talking all about ETFs. I’m joined by Alfred Lee, who is the Director, Portfolio Manager, and Investment Strategist at BMO ETFs. I love any chance I can get to talk about investing and was super excited to go in-depth about ETFs (one of my personal favourite investment products).
Alfred is a senior portfolio manager with BMO ETFs and has been a part of their ETF business since its inception over 10 years ago. He currently manages their index-based equities ETFs but also previously managed their fixed income ETF lineup. He also serves as the investment strategist for BMO ETFs and is involved with product design.
There is so much to cover with ETFs, including all the different types of index funds, taxation, and the major differences between them and mutual funds. Alfred helps answer all these questions and more in today’s episode. If you want to go even more in-depth when it comes to ETFs, then be sure to check out BMO ETFs' Views for the Desk podcast, which releases new episodes weekly.
