I’ve seen so many people either quit their job or reconsider their current profession over the course of the pandemic. It’s not completely surprising that with so many changes in the last 18 months, everyone is taking stock of their life. That’s why today’s podcast episode is so timely. I’m joined by Jennifer Turliuk, entrepreneur and author of How to Figure Out What to Do With Your Life (Next).
Jennifer Turliuk is an entrepreneur, writer, and speaker that resides in Toronto. Jennifer is the CEO of MakerKids, which started the first and largest makerspace for kids in the world and now runs award-winning virtual programs, camps, and parties on Coding, Robotics, and Minecraft. Her book, How to Figure Out What to Do With Your Life (Next) breaks down her strategy of how to make a career change at any age and what led her to her own change in career path.
My career path has not been linear and I’m always excited to have guests on the show that further reinforce the idea that it doesn’t have to be. Jennifer’s book is a great toolkit for anyone looking to make a change and to remember that it doesn’t matter what age you are, you can start or change your life at any time.

For today’s episode, I’m being interviewed by my younger sister and virtual assistant, Sarah Moorhouse! We dive into never-before-heard stories about how I went from being a corporate employee to a business owner, why freelancing is not for everyone, hustle culture, and my tips for newbie freelancers.
When I was back home in Vancouver over the summer, I brought all my podcast equipment with me without knowing what this episode would be about. Sarah had the great idea to turn it around and interview me on all things freelance since she has joined the self-employment club this past year. We also talk about what success means to me, and of course, some money talk.
We had a lot of fun recording this episode and I enjoyed sharing more about my journey than I ever have before. I really hope you enjoy this episode too!

I may have found another internet twin in my guest on the podcast today! Fellow podcast host and Financial Analyst Chris Browning is joining me today to talk about his false start as an art major in college, which led him to eventually pursue a career in finance (and podcasting!).
Chris is the creator and host of Popcorn Finance, a short-form personal finance podcast, as well as the co-host of the call-in money advice show This is Awkward. Chris began producing podcasts in 2017, which led him to create his own show, Popcorn Finance, a podcast discussing finance in about the time it takes to make a bag of popcorn.
Chris and I talk about how he started his career in finance and why he wanted to make his own podcast. We also talk about the pitfalls of being in a time of information overload and why that can be dangerous when it comes to misinformation about investing and get rich quick schemes. I really enjoyed having Chris on the show and would love to have him be a guest again in the future!
