This week I’m tackling a subject that I’m shocked I’ve never talked about before, weddings! I love weddings but I also know how stressful it was when I was planning my own 8 years ago. To help me talk about all things wedding planning I’m joined by Jeffra Trumpower, Senior Director of Creative Marketing at WeddingWire.
Jeffra has been part of the wedding industry for more than a decade, with a focus on marketing and content development. She has expanded her role at WeddingWire to all facets of marketing including, design, video production, live and virtual events, and more. She currently resides in Bethesda, Maryland with her husband, daughter, and Jack Russell terrier.
WeddingWire was a site I used religiously when I was planning my wedding years ago, so I was so excited to have Jeffra on the podcast to get her great insight into the industry. Jeffra shares expert tips on wedding planning including where to start when it comes to planning, how to decide on a budget, and how to avoid regrets when it comes to your special day.

This week I have a returning guest on the podcast! I’m joined for a third time by Robin Taub who's here to share everything about her new book The Wisest Investment, an update to her bestselling book, A Parent’s Guide to Raising Money-Smart Kids. I was so happy to have Robin back on the show to share how her book aims to help parents and kids navigate the world since the pandemic hit.
Robin is a Chartered Professional Accountant by trade, who then transitioned into real estate then derivative marketing at Citibank Canada. Robin is now a professional speaker and author, whose new book The Wisest Investment is for parents who are strapped for time but want to teach their kids to become responsible and money-savvy adults.
In this episode, we chat about everything from what age should we start getting kids interested in personal finance to where the best information for kids to learn is, and spoiler alert it's probably not TikTok. Since the world has changed dramatically in the past 18 months so has how we’re handling our money, and how we should be teaching our kids about it. Robin is a big proponent of looking for teachable moments in our everyday lives and that learning with your child is one of the best ways to get them engaged and interested in personal finance.

It’s no surprise that I love talking to friends, family, or basically anyone about money. But that’s not the case for a lot of people. Today’s guest on the podcast is trying to make talking about money easier. I’m joined by the author of Breaking Money Silence and wealth psychology expert Kathleen Burns Kingsbury.
Kathleen has a background in banking and finance but after completing her Master’s degree in psychology, she decided she wanted to merge the two and create her own business. Breaking Money Silence®: How to Shatter Money Taboos, Talk More Openly about Finances, and Live a Richer Life is Kathleen’s fifth book and it aims to teach how to approach talking about money with the people in our lives.
In this episode, Kathleen shares why negotiation is an essential tool in everyone’s money arsenal, how to approach talking to your parents about money, and why being money compatible is essential to a successful relationship. Kathleen is a wealth of knowledge (pun intended) and it was such a privilege to have her on the show!

This week I’m so excited to be joined by someone who I met at one of my live events 5 years ago and since have had the privilege to see them thrive as an important voice in the Canadian personal finance space. Zandile Chiwanza is a personal finance journalist and self-proclaimed “budget warrior”. In this episode, Zandile takes us through how she navigated debt, and how Twitter was the catalyst for her career.
Originally from Zimbabwe, Zandile came to Canada as an international student in 2010. Through her own struggles with debt and trying to pay for school and bills, her personal finance journey began. Zandile’s writing as a financial journalist aims to empower people and reassure them that financial wealth is attainable, no matter your circumstance. Her work focuses on the intersection between mental health, financial wellness, and race.
I love Zandile’s writing and I was so excited to have her on the show. Our chat was so motivational for anyone who’s worried about how they’ll ever get out of debt or figure out their finances. Zandile also is an advocate for crushing your debt, while not sacrificing having fun and living your life.
