244 How to Support BIPOC Right Now - Jessica Moorhouse, Host of the Mo' Money Podcast

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello wonderful podcast listener! This is my final episode of Season 10 of the Mo’ Money Podcast, and I want to end this season by discussing something very important to me and quite honestly the human race right now. There are global protests both online and offline to fight against the systemic racism that exists in Canada, the U.S., and the rest of the world.

It’s 2020, and despite all the progress and innovation we’ve made as a society, racism still exists. Inequality still exists. Injustice still exists.

I have been so emotional all week. I’m heartbroken about the innocent lives that have been lost due to police brutality. I’m heartbroken that people of colour have suffered for so long while their white allies (like me) have done nothing to help. Enough is enough. I believe what’s happening right now is a tipping point leading to major change. And I for one want to take action.

One of the things I’ve done is made a choice to no longer support FinCon, a financial conference I’ve attended since 2014. You can find more info on my Twitter page, but let’s just say I am an anti-racist and I refuse to support anyone or any institution that does not uphold those basic values.

The thing with money is it has everything to do with race. Moreover, money can be used to make positive change and fight against racism. One way I’ve been trying to lend support to the black community and the protests is by donating money to various bail funds, victim funds and Black Lives Matter. I will also never be attending FinCon again and as I’ve just received my refund for that event, I will be redirecting those funds to another cause to help people of colour.

Right now isn’t the time to see how things play out or be afraid of not being liked. Right now is the time to speak up and be vocal. It’s time to condemn racism, support people of colour, and not just say you’re an ally, but prove it!

For myself, besides donating money, I’m going to continue to educate myself, I’m going to support more BIPOC businesses, and I will be making the next season of my podcast more diverse in terms of guests. It is something I’ve always tried to do, but just looking at the Season 10 line up, I know I can do way better.

If you want to take action also, below are some ways you can vote with your dollars, as well as a long list of fantastic BIPOC personal finance influencers to support. Please follow them, consume their content, and amplify their platforms. Their voices need to be heard.

Thanks for listening to this episode and supporting me in these 5 years of having the podcast! I’ll be taking a summer hiatus, and will be bringing back the podcast in late August or early September. To stay in the loop, you can follow me on social media or better yet sign up to my email list. I will most likely pop in and do a few special podcast episodes during the summer, but otherwise, I plan on taking this time to focus on a few projects I’ve had on the backburner and make more videos for my YouTube Channel.

Thanks again for listening and I’ll catch you back on the podcast soon!

243 Making Sense of Money During the Pandemic - Lauren Silbert, VP, General Manager of The Balance

Podcast cover
Read more

We're here! This is it! We've arrived at episode 243, the last interview episode of Season 10 of the Mo' Money Podcast...and my 5-year anniversary of starting this podcast! It is actually insane that I started this show half a decade ago, have interviewed hundreds of guests, and am still going.

I do want to acknowledge that things have been very difficult in the world right now. I have a solo podcast episode that I will drop tomorrow to talk more about it, but if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, then you already know my stance and my feelings about everything. It's been a trying week trying to focus on anything, but I think what's going on right now is so important for us to progress as a society.

But, that's not what this episode is about. For this last interview of the season, I have the amazing Lauren Silbert, VP, General Manager of The Balance (one of my favourite personal finance resources). I recorded this episode a month ago at the beginning of May, and we discussed how to make sense of money (and manage it the best way possible) during this pandemic.

I just learned that in Ontario (where I live), our State of Emergency status has been extended until June 30, so we are still in the thick of it. I have no idea what the rest of the year will look like, but if there's one thing I do know, it's what to do with your money during uncertain times. This is the time to preserve your capital, save up that emergency fund I always talk about, and avoid making any emotional decisions with your money.

Moreover, this is the time to start taking your finances seriously. I know it can feel overwhelming and stressful, but during chaos is the best time to try to create some stability in your financial life. So even though I'll be going on summer hiatus for the show (I'm sure I'll pop in with a few bonus episodes though), take this time to listen to other podcasts, read blogs and books, and make improving your financial literacy your number one priority.

242 How to Master the Art of Self-Promotion - Meredith Fineman, Author of Brag Better, Speaker, Media Expert & Founder of FinePoint

Podcast cover
Read more

Brag isn’t a dirty word! Or at least, it shouldn’t be. That’s what Meredith Fineman, author of Brag Better, shares in this episode all about how to master the art of self-promotion.

Meredith is the founder of FinePoint, a leadership and professional development company focused on training women on bragging, a systemic issues issue she hopes to eradicate. She is also an entrepreneur, media expert and freelance writer who has written for outlets like the Harvard Business Review, Forbes, FastCompany, and Inc.

You see, if you don’t promote yourself and tell others what you’re good at and what you’ve achieved, no one’s going to ask! The advice that your work will speak for itself, unfortunately, isn’t true anymore (and who knows if it ever was true!). In today’s society, if you want to succeed in life and you’re career, you need to brag about yourself. And no, that doesn’t mean being arrogant or boastful in the negative way you may think.

It means knowing who you are, what you want, and understand how to get to where you want to go while also lifting others up at the same time. We dive deep into this topic in the second to last week of Season 10 of the podcast, so I hope you really enjoy it as much as I did interviewing Meredith!

241 How to Write Your Own Money Story - Tara Falcone, CFP, CFA, Founder of ReisUP

Podcast cover
Read more

Money influences us all in different ways. Our childhoods and backgrounds specifically have a big impact on how we think, feel and manage money later in life. But ultimately, money is just a tool. It’s up to us to decide how to use it to write our own money story.

And my guest Tara Falcone knows this all too well. As she shares in this episode, she grew up in a low-income household in which money was scarce, compelling her to start working and earning money at a young age. Realizing that she didn’t want money to have such a tight hold on her adult life, she worked hard in school to get accepted to Yale and enter a career as an investment analyst in New York City.

After 4 years in the industry, she left to dedicate her time and knowledge to a larger audience by starting her financial literacy company ReisUP. She also got her Certified Financial Planner™ designation and became a Certified Financial Analyst® charterholder. Now, she offers financial literacy programming to universities to help educate students, as well as her own audience of followers.

But the most inspiring thing about Tara’s story is how she chose to use money as a tool of empowerment. Money used to restrict her family growing up, but she didn’t want that for when she eventually starts a family. That’s why she named her company ReisUP, to encourage others to rise up and take control of their financial future like she did.

240 Managing Your Debt During the Pandemic - Doug Hoyes, Licensed Insolvency Trustee & Author of Straight Talk on Your Money

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s been way too long since I first had Doug Hoyes, licensed insolvency trustee and co-founder of Hoyes Michalos, on the show! I’m talking years! He was first on the show to talk about consumer proposals and bankruptcies back in May 2016 for episode 49, and he’s back to talk about things to consider if you’re dealing with mounting debt during this pandemic.

Not only that, but he is now also an author with his book Straight Talk on Your Money, which we also discuss in this episode. What I enjoyed most about his book is his very unique perspective on some of the money myths or traditional financial advice we’ve all heard over the years. Since Doug has worked with a number of clients over the course of his career, he has seen almost every situation possible first-hand. If you haven’t read it yet, I’d highly recommend it.

There are some great sections on day-to-day money management and dealing with debt that I found so different in their take. For instance, a common piece of financial advice is to pay off either your most expensive debt or your smallest debt first. But maybe the best route to take is to pay off your callable or secured debts first since those debts are linked to assets that can be taken away.

Podcast cover

Many Canadians are feeling the financial effects of the pandemic and as a response the federal government as launched several financial relief programs to help out. To explain what the different programs are and how eligibility works, I’ve got personal finance expert and author Preet Banerjee finally back on the show!

Is Right Now a Good Time to Invest? - Money Minute with Jessica Moorhouse

Podcast cover
Read more

Is right now a good time to invest? Yes! But also...so was a 6 months ago, a year ago, 10 years ago (you get the picture).

Remember this famous Chinese proverb: 

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

– Chinese Proverb

The same goes for investing! Don't try to time the market, just get into the market and stay there. One of the best things I ever did was start investing when I thought it was the wrong time (in 2010 when the stock market started to recover). I thought I missed the boat and I was doing it all wrong. Cut to a decade later and no, I didn't do it wrong. I did it right by starting to invest as soon as I could afford to, and making regular contributions to my investments during all the ups and downs we saw in the past 10 years. 

So if you want to get started with investing, I highly recommend you start educating yourself more about it, gain some financial confidence, then go for it!

238 From NFL Player to Financial Planner - Jedidiah Collins, CFP, Ex-NFLer & Author of Your Money Vehicle

Podcast cover
Read more

Have you ever watched the show Ballers with Dwayne Johnson? I know, that doesn’t sound like the type of show I’d watch (I know nothing about sports!), but my husband was watching it one night and told me it was about an ex-NFL player who becomes a financial planner. Now that’s my kind of show!

Well, cut to present day and I have basically a real-life “baller” on the podcast! Jedidiah Collins played for the NFL for seven seasons, and studied to become a CFP on the off-season. Post-NFL career, he now owns his own financial services company, does public speaking and is on a mission to educate others how to make their money work better for them.

We get into what it was like playing for the NFL, earning those big game cheques, and how he was able to avoid being another sports star who ended their career with no savings in the bank. We also dive into his new workbook Your Money Vehicle that he developed to be an actionable guidebook for others to build their own financial plans and set themselves on the right path.
