I can't believe this is the last episode of Season 16! It's been an amazing season and I'm so happy to close it out with a great episode for all my summer travelers wanting to know how they can save money on converting their currency abroad. Or even if you aren't traveling this summer, if you aspire to be a digital nomad or frequently receive/send money to family or friends internationally, then you'll want to listen up.
Brigit Carroll who joins me for this episode is the Policy Lead, North America at Wise, and she's sharing how Wise is changing the game for how we can send, receive and exchange money internationally and effectively normalize borderless banking. Brigit advocates for Wise’s mission of instant, convenient, transparent, and eventually free cross-border payments vis-a-vis policymakers in the U.S., Canada, and beyond. Based in Washington, D.C., Brigit joined Wise’s policy team in Brussels in 2019, focused on EU policy. Prior to joining Wise, Brigit gained 5+ years’ experience in public affairs and advocacy in Brussels, at global communications firm FleishmanHillard and the American Chamber of Commerce to the EU.
In this episode, Brigit explains how Wise works, including how it keeps your money safe and makes international transactions easy with lower fees and better exchange rates. She also shares her own story of using Wise before she started working for the company while she lived in Europe and how they are constantly trying to improve and partner with financial institutions to make things easier and better.
Thank you so much for listening to another season of the More Money Podcast and thank you to all the amazing guests that came on the show! I'm going to take a much-needed summer break, work on my book and visit my family in Vancouver. So with that, see you in September and enjoy your summer too!

It's the penultimate episode of Season 16 and today I'm joined by a millennial making waves with her personal finance content on Instagram and Tiktok — Melissa Jean-Baptiste aka Millenial in Debt. Melissa is a former high school teacher turned financial educator and career coach who helps millennials and Gen Z build generational wealth and gain financial freedom in a shame-free digital environment. She's also a new author recently releasing her first book, So This Is Why I'm Broke, and I couldn't wait to chat with her all about it in today's episode.
In this episode, Melissa shares her debt journey and why she thinks it's important to add yourself into your budget, in other words, don't forget to have fun and live a little! She also shares what she'd do differently looking back at her twenties and what the reality of going viral online was like (FYI, it's not all fire and high-five emojis). This episode is for all the people who think they're running out of time because they've hit their 30s. As someone who recently turned 37, let me tell you, don't worry, you still have plenty of time to achieve your goals and change your financial life!
