No-Fee Banks in Canada & USA - Money Minute with Jessica Moorhouse

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to my new weekly series on the Mo' Money Podcast called "Money Minute with Jessica Moorhouse"!

I love doing interviews for this show, but sometimes I just want to talk to you directly and share some tips or pieces of wisdom that I think could help you on your personal finance journey...all in just a few minutes per episode.

This first episode is me sharing 5 different banks that offer no-fee chequing accounts in both Canada and the US. If you're paying monthly bank fees, I challenge you to calculate how much you're spending on bank fees in a year. You may be surprised! Just think of what you could do with that money instead if you switched to a no-fee bank.

222 How to Save $13,000 Per Month - Gordon Stein, Author of Cashflow Cookbook

Podcast cover
Read more

I can’t believe we’re already celebrating Season 10 of the Mo’ Money Podcast, which is why to kick off this new season I wanted to share a special episode that will hopefully inspire and motivate you to take a good look at your spending and see how you can save some money with minimal effort.

The perfect guest to talk about this with me is Gordon Stein, author of Cashflow Cookbook. In his book he shares 60 different ways you can save between $25 and $900 per month! If you add all of those ways up, you could save $13,000 per month total! You know the old adage “A penny saved is a penny earned”? Well, it’s true! If you can find a way to cut down on costs or save money on things you’re already spending money on, that means there’s more money leftover for you to put towards your emergency fund, a future vacation, or your retirement investments.

And what’s great about Gordon’s book and the tips he shares in this episode is they are all fairly simple to implement and don’t require you to live like one of those people featured on TLC’s show “Extreme Cheapskates”. Because at the end of the day, you probably don’t want to live like an extreme cheapskate, and I sure don’t either. That kind of life, in my opinion, isn’t sustainable for the long-term. But the tips that Gordon shares are, and can save you a ton of money over the course of years and decades.

Also, don’t forget, I’m giving away a copy of his book! To enter to win you just have to visit jessicamoorhouse.com/contests.

221 How to Be a Value Investor - Danielle Town, New York Times Bestselling Author of Invested

Podcast cover
Read more

I can’t believe we’re already here but this is the last episode of 2019 and Season 9 of the Mo’ Money Podcast! And what better way to end it than with an episode all about value investing with New York Times bestselling author Danielle Town.

Although I’ve done a ton of episodes on the podcast on investing, if you’re a long-time listener then you may have found that most of the guests I have on the show tend to say pretty much the same things: keep fees low, diversify and invest in low-cost index funds or index ETFs. Not Danielle! As a value investor following the path of Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger, she has an altogether different strategy for reaching financial indepence. Instead of buying investment products that replicate a broad market index, she believes in investing in just a few stocks strategically, buying low, holding on to them, then eventually selling them when they are priced high to earn a nice profit.

There’s obviously quite a bit to know about value investing, and in my opinion, it is an advanced investment strategy that is not easily carried out. That being said, I find it incredibly fascinating and an important strategy to understand when learning about different ways to invest your money. I’m still a huge fan of indexing, but I’m not gonna lie, I’m definitely going to look more into doing some value investing for a small portion of my overall investment portfolio and see how things go. And luckily Danielle’s book breaks the strategy down in a very easy to understand way.

220 The Life-Changing Reason You Need Emergency Savings - Sharon Epperson, Author & CNBC Senior Personal Finance Correspondent

Podcast cover
Read more

When I heard Sharon Epperson, CNBC Senior Personal Finance Correspondent, speak at this year’s FinCon, I knew I needed to have her on the show. Her keynote about surviving a brain aneurysm and the importance of having the right insurance and emergency savings made the entire ballroom at the conference so quiet a pin could drop and you’d hear it. Not only that, my mentee who I was connected with as a speaker at the conference, stood up at her speech to share her own health emergency story that I had no idea about. Sharon’s story of why it’s so crucial we all slow down and take care of ourselves moved me, so I hope you feel the same way after listening to this episode.

Below are links to some of the resources we mentioned in this episode, but if there’s one big takeaway I want you to leave with after listening it’s this: nothing is more important in this world than your well-being and health. And personal finance isn’t just about money. It’s about taking care of yourself first. So make sure that you take a look at how you’re covered and start making strides with fully funding your own emergency fund. Moreover, make sure to make a will and assign a Power of Attorney. Because no one can predict when they will experience their own health scare, like Sharon did. The only thing we can do right now is to make a plan for “if” and “when” something happens.

218 The Link Between Behaviour & Investing - Dr. Daniel Crosby, Author, Psychologist & Behavioural Finance Expert

Podcast cover
Read more

Learning how to invest isn’t just figuring out the difference between stocks and bonds, choosing between being a passive or active investor, or deciding to hire an investment professional, going with a robo-advisor or doing DIY investing. Investing is so much more than that. Why? Because we’re humans, not robots or computers.

Emotions and behaviour dictate so much about why the stock market goes up and down and what decisions we end of making. Which is why I’ve got Dr. Daniel Crosby on the show who recently authored the book The Behavioral Investor.

In this episode we talk about what the 4 behavioural risks that crush your investment returns:

  1. Ego – We believe we are special and succumb to confirmation bias.
  2. Conversativsm – We like to stick to things we know and thus tend to hold on to losing positions.
  3. Attention – We pay too much attention stories put out by the media or our personal networks, and not enough to stats and simple math.
  4. Emotion – We tend to let our emotions control our decisions and ignore logic.

We also discuss some helpful ways to combat these behaviours:

  1. Ego – Diversify, don’t fall into the trap of investing too much of your portfolio into your home country.
  2. Conservatism – Create a rule-based system for investing and stick to it.
  3. Attention – Stop listening to the noise and get focused. Sometimes the simplest solution is also the best solution.
  4. Emotion – Meditate and stop and think. Also having a barrier such as using dollar-cost averaging, automated contributions and working with an advisor could help so you don’t have too easy access to your money.

There are many more gems in his book so make sure to buy a copy. Also, visit jessicamoorhouse.com/contests to enter to win a copy of his book too.

217 What to Know About Health Care & Insurance - Camille Stewart, Vice President of Strategy and Digital Experience at Manulife

Podcast cover
Read more

There’s a lot of information out there about health care in the U.S., but what about Canada? Is it actually free? What isn’t covered by our government? And does it make sense to get private health insurance?

I sit down with Camille Stewart, Vice President of Strategy and Digital Experience at Manulife Canada, to discuss all of this and more. Camille became interested in working in insurance because of a personal family experience that she shares in this episode. Ever since then, she’s felt a deep passion for educating others about how to properly protect themselves in terms of their health.

216 Understanding Financial Abuse - Jana Lynch, Financial Abuse Awareness Advocate

Podcast cover
Read more

I’ve been following Jana Lynch for years ever since she was a fellow personal finance blogger (now she is an editor at DollarSprout). And although we’ve crossed paths a number of times at previous FinCons, this year we finally got to spend some time together and I couldn’t help but feel inspired by her knowledge and passion for educating others about financial abuse. I knew I needed to have her on the show to share what she knew because for whatever reason in my 200+ podcast episodes, not once have I interviewed anyone about the very important topic of financial abuse.

But what is financial abuse exactly? According to the Canadian Bankers Association, “Financial abuse occurs when someone tries to take or control what belongs to you for their own benefit, not yours.” Or, as per VeryWellMind, “Financial abuse involves controlling a victim’s ability to acquire, use, and maintain financial resources.” In other words, financial abuse may be hard to see from the outside but it can be just as dangerous and damaging as physical or verbal abuse.

I’m going to share some articles and resources in the show notes for after you’ve listened to this episode. If you or someone you know is experiencing financial abuse, just know that there is help and don’t be afraid to seek it.

215 How to Master Your Money - Sandy Yong, Author of The Money Master

Podcast cover
Read more

I met Sandy Yong, author of the soon-to-be-released book The Money Master: Inside Secrets On How to Make Your Money Grow and Stay Safe, about a year ago at the 2018 Canadian Personal Finance Conference. She told me she was working on a book and I soon found out we had very similar personal finance journeys.

Having been brought up in a very frugal family, and having finished her business degree during the Great Recession, Sandy worked hard to pay off her student loan and make her way in the corporate world. She soon realized that being frugal was only one part of mastering your money. You also needed to set financial goals, invest wisely and have a clear action plan for all your hard-earned money.

That’s what led her to discover personal finance books which eventually inspired her to write her own book to reflect her journey and key things young Canadians should know about managing their money better.

In this interview, we touch on what some of those key things are, such as the benefits to passive investing instead of investing in high-fee actively-managed mutual funds, while also discussing some new players in the finance world like investing in the cannabis industry, cryptocurrency and robo-advisors.

Her book isn’t out yet, but you can pre-order your copy today. I’m also going to be giving away copies of her book when it’s out, so make sure to enter to win in my massive book giveaway!
