How to Get Back to Business After a Career Pause - Nancy Jensen & Sarah Duenwald, Co-Founders of The Swing Shift & Co-Authors of Back to Business
We’ve all heard the statistics. If you’re a woman and you decide to take time off of your career to raise a family, go back to school, or travel the world, it will set you back both professionally and financially. Although it’s not fair, these are the facts. But that shouldn’t scare you from taking that career pause when you need to.
And luckily I have two guests on the show to discuss how to get back into the workforce, and not just get back on track but accelerate your career into an even better, more successful one.
I’ve got Nancy Jensen and Sarah Duenwald on the show to discuss this topic in-depth. They teamed up to found their company, The Swing Shift, and co-author their new book Back to Business, after working with hundreds of women struggling with this exact thing.
Not only that, both Nancy and Sarah experienced this themselves when taking maternity leaves, and that’s what inspired them to come together and create a solution for women so we can see a change in those statistics.

Designing Your Freedom Years - Stephanie Myers & Gillian Batt, Founders of Our Freedom Years
Happy New Year! And welcome back to the Mo’ Money Podcast! After taking a few weeks off to rest and recharge, I am so excited to be back to drop Season 12 of the Mo’ Money Podcast today. Not only that, I thought I’d start with an episode that will get you excited about the future again!
2020 was rough on us all, some more than others, and we’re still in the thick of it. But I’ve got hope for 2021. And when you’ve got hope, you can make plans for better days to come. That’s why I’ve got the wonderful Stephanie Myers and Gillian Batt from Our Freedom Years on the show. I’m a big fan of their YouTube channel, and not only did they achieve financial independence and retire early in their 30s/40s, but they are also Canadian!
I haven’t had many Canadians FIRE people on the show, so this is a big treat. And I sure asked them all the questions I know you would have asked yourself, like what to do with taxes when you’re a nomad, how much to save, how to ensure you won’t run out of money, and does FIRE mean you don’t ever have to work again (since so many people who achieve FIRE seem to continue working?).
I know you’re going to love this episode just as much as I enjoyed recording it. And don’t forget to check out the link below to sign up for their free e-course!

Money Conversations to Have Before You Commit - Wallace Howick, CPA & Author of Love and Money: Conversations To Have Before You Get Married
Talking money with your partner is never easy. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a book with conversation starters and examples to use to get things going? Good thing Wallace Howick, CPA thought just the same thing and wrote his book Love and Money: Conversations to Have Before You Get Married.
But the conversations he shares in his books can actually be applied to so many different relationships, such as when you’re dating or common-law. And the thing is, although technically it’s not difficult, most couples have no idea where to start. Luckily in this episode, Wallace shares his expertise and insight with his 30 years of being a Chartered Professional Account and working with a wide range of clients.
This book is such a great read (and not too long), if you’re looking for a way to approach the subject with your partner, maybe put this episode on in the background or grab a copy and try out some of his conversation starters for yourself!

A Smarter Way to Do Passive Investing - Brendan Wood, Co-Founder & CTO of Passiv
DIY investing has always been a popular topic on the show, so I’m thrilled to have Brendan Wood on the show, who is the co-founder and CTO of Passiv.
As he shares on the show, he grew up in New Foundland and then studied engineering at the University of New Brunswick. After managing his own investment portfolio like so many others do, using Questrade and spreadsheets, he started to wonder if there was an easier way to do it. Realizing that others on forums like Reddit wondered the same thing, he went to work to develop Passiv, an app that works with a number of discount brokerages to make it easier and saving you precious time managing your own portfolio.
The best part? Currently, Passiv is free to use for all Questrade clients, so you can try it out yourself and see how much easier it is to use compared to your traditional spreadsheet. This is great news because the one thing I hear all the time is that after listening to my podcast, so many people want to try out DIY investing but aren’t sure how to start. Passiv is a new entry point into self-directed investing, which means it just got easier to start investing and growing your wealth.

The Power of Financial Literacy - Dr. JeFreda Brown, Financial Freedom Strategist & CEO of Provision Financial Education
You know how I came up with the title for this episode? It was actually from a listener who shared with me that she never knew the power of personal finance (and financial literacy) before she discovered books, blogs and podcasts like mine. And once she realized how powerful it can be, it changed her whole perspective on things.
My next guest Dr. JeFreda Brown shares a similar realization in this episode. Before helping individuals with their money, she worked on the institutional side of things. But her passion for personal finance and motivation to teach others the powers of financial literacy led her to start her own company, Provision Financial Education, and dedicate her time to empowering others through her financial wellness programs.
Seeing as discovering the world of personal finance changed my life and path forever, I couldn’t agree more that financial literacy is one of the most important things we need to bring more to the forefront. So if you like this episode, share it with your friends and family. Get the word out that your financial present does not have to be your financial future. All of this stuff can be learned, you just need to start somewhere and keep going.

Customer ReviewsSee All
Very Informative & Educational
Jessica and her podcast had helped me to create a perfect mindset regarding budgeting, savings and organizing my finances. 👍🏼 & follow her on IG too.
Too like information
This podcast gives very little actual information, it’s mostly just motivational. I wish they actually gave people investment and financial planning advice.
Great Personal Finance Content for Canadians!
I’ve been listening to Jessica’s podcast for a year, I follow her on social media and visit her website regularly. I’ve been looking for education on personal finance for CANADIANS all my adult life - finally-Thank you! I find the material inspiring and easy to understand and the topics are comprehensive (I recommend listening to all of them). I listen while I walk (love to multitask!) and learn something every time. The book recommendations are solid and the guest speakers are solid too but I keep coming back to this podcast for the palatability. Even if the guests would be dry on their own, Jessica chimes in at just the right time to keep it real.
Thank you for your hard work and great content Jessica - you are an inspiration, keep up the great work (please)!
