Right now the investing space has been taken over with talk of cryptocurrencies and NFTs, but those aren't the only alternative investment options for investors. Heck, there are some alternative investments that even include physical things attached to them...like wine! That’s why I've got Atul Tiwari, CEO of Cult Wines Americas, back on the show to discuss all the ins and outs of investing in a portfolio of fine wine (and yes, you can actually drink the wine if you want too!).
You may remember Atul from episode 170, when he was CEO of Vanguard Canada. Back then, he came on the show to share how he helped pioneer ETF investing in Canada and some of the benefits of index funds. Now, he's in a very different role, focused on educating and helping investors diversify their portfolios even more by investing in fine wine. Cult Wines originated in the U.K. in 2007, and Atul has taken on the task of bringing the company over to North America, making wine investing more accessible to Canadian investors.
In this episode, Atul goes over everything from what’s the return on investment with fine wines, how to build a strong portfolio, fee structure, as well as where the wine is physically stored. As someone who enjoys a glass of wine (but rarely spends more than $15 on a bottle), I wanted to know what constitutes a fine wine, and are there wines that are bought without the intention of drinking it? If you’re keen to find out the answers and more about fine wine investing, then you’ll love this episode!

This week’s episode has a little bit of everything, including talking about budgeting, investing, and defining success on your own terms. Joining me on the show today is The Budget Mom aka Kumiko Love, whose new book My Money My Way: Taking Back Control of Your Financial Life is such a great read that is chock-full of practical finance tips.
In 2015, Kumiko found herself in $77,000 worth of debt while making a yearly salary of only $24,000 as a single mom. She managed to pay off the debt in record time, while also sharing the journey on her blog, The Budget Mom. She now has 2 million highly devoted followers that love her personally designed budget planners. Her new best-selling book, My Money My Way: Taking Back Control of Your Financial Life, shares her story, as well as others to show that you too can take control of your money.
Kumiko wants people to ask themselves once they finish the book if their glass is half empty or half full when the correct answer is actually that it’s refillable. I loved having Kumiko on the show because she is such a positive and inspiring woman who wants everyone to succeed by doing money their own way.

January 2021 marked the 1-year anniversary of the Gamestop stock going viral, which led to the birth of meme stocks. To help make sense of what happened during that craze and the time since is my guest, Spencer Jakab whose new book “The Revolution That Wasn't: GameStop, Reddit, and the Fleecing of Small Investors” tells the story of what led to those events and what it says about investing in today’s social media culture.
Spencer Jakab is an author, award-winning financial journalist, and a former top-rated stock analyst at Credit Suisse. He also edits the Wall Street Journal’s “Heard on the Street” segment.
In today’s episode, Spencer talks about the rise of people turning to social media for investing advice and the danger of confusing investing with speculating or get-rich-quick schemes. Spencer also explains the initial purpose of the takeover of the Gamestop stocks and why it only made the rich richer. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Spencer and hearing his take on Reddit threads like r/wallstreetbets and financial influencers, and I know you will too!
