Money Advice for the Real World - Erica Alini, Author and Incoming Personal Finance Reporter for The Globe and Mail
Welcome back to a new season of the podcast! I hope you’ve had a nice winter break and like me are ready to get this year started. To kick off Season 14, I’m joined by author and personal finance reporter Erica Alini, whose new book Money Like You Mean is the perfect new year read. Erica Alini lives in Toronto and is the incoming personal finance reporter for The Globe & Mail after being a financial journalist at Global News for several years. She was also the face and creator of the Global News' Money123 personal finance series, which aired on Global National every Saturday evening for nearly two years. In this episode, we cover so many topics that Erica writes about in her new book, Money Like You Mean It, such as the trouble with buy now, pay later apps, renting vs. owning, how to increase your income, and why the pandemic is partially the reason behind the growing popularity in investing.

Balancing Wealth, Health & Happiness - Andrew Hallam, Author of Millionaire Teacher
It's the season finale for Season 13 of the More Money Podcast, can you believe it? Soon, we’ll all be ringing in the new year and hopefully see 2022 be the fresh start we all need. Joining me again on the podcast for this very special episode is the international best-selling author behind one of my all-time favourite personal finance books Millionaire Teacher, Andrew Hallam. Andrew is on the podcast today to talk about his new book Balance, which explores how to spend and invest in happiness and why our definition of success needs to be redefined. Andrew is a speaker, author, and personal finance writer. He’s given personal finance talks in more than 32 countries but still finds time to travel the world, explore jungles and climb volcanoes with his wife. His new book, Balance, is a combination of personal anecdotes and behavioural scientific studies that aim to share how we can get happier and wealthier. Balance is available for pre-order now but will be available on January 18th, 2022. I loved having Andrew back on the podcast and being able to chat about investing and why we are striving for things that we don’t actually want. Our chat was the perfect way to end this year and look toward the future. I hope that you have a wonderful holiday and a happy new year and I’ll be back in mid-January 2022!

How Not to Be a Fool When Investing in Stocks - Iain Butler, Chief Investment Advisor at The Motley Fool Canada
We all know I’m a hardcore index fund investor and love to talk about the benefits of passive investing for building long-term wealth. But I’m also often asked if I invest in individual stocks, to which I answer "Yes, I do actually." One of the ways that I learn about potential stocks to invest in is Motley Fool Canada, and Chief Investment Advisor Iain Butler joins me on today’s bonus episode of the podcast to talk stocks in-depth. Motley Fool Canada offers financial and investing research and education, and Iain has been an employee with them since 2012. He is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and the Lead Advisor on Fool Canada's flagship Stock Advisor Canada product.

We also talk about the feelings of FOMO when it comes to the growing popularity of NFTS, meme stocks, and cryptocurrencies, and why Motley Fool Canada is a great place to learn more about how to invest in today's market with their daily updates and research.

Trauma, Privilege & Diversity in Personal Finance - Parween Mander, Money Expert and Founder of the Wealthy Wolfe
As the podcast starts to wind down before a short winter break, I’m so glad that before the end of the season I get to share today’s episode. Today we’re tackling some important topics like privilege, money trauma, and how to build generational wealth as a child of immigrants. To help navigate these topics is my guest and fellow Accredited AFCC® Parween Mander. Parween is a South Asian money expert and founder of the Wealthy Wolfe. She holds the Accredited Financial Counselor Canada® designation and is also a certified Trauma of Money Facilitator. She’s on a mission to provide honest and relatable financial coaching for women of colour. From her upbringing as a child of immigrants, she has been determined to help other WOC overcome their financial traumas and build generational wealth. Parween shares how her money journey began at 16 and why privilege is often a big part of people’s money journey that isn't acknowledged. There needs to be more diversity in this industry and I’m glad Parween is one of the amazing voices that’s spreading that message and her financial expertise.

Canada's Housing Boom...Is There an End in Sight? - John Webster, President and CEO of Scotia Mortgage Corporation
As someone who decided to sell her townhouse and buy a new house in Toronto this year, I can vouch for how crazy the Canadian housing market is right now. Although my experience is specifically in Toronto, talking to people across the country every single day...I know that people have similar experiences from coast to coast. Since real estate has become such a hot topic, especially because of the pandemic, I wanted to gain some further insight into why the housing market has exploded in the past two years and hear some predictions for what we can expect in the future. To provide that insight, I've got John Webster, President & CEO of Scotiabank Mortgage Corporation, joining me for this episode. John has 30+ years of experience in mortgage lending, and in addition to being the President & CEO of Scotiabank Mortgage Corporation, he's also the Head of the Real Estate Secured Lending Unit at Scotiabank which includes Scotia Mortgage Authority and Home Financing Solutions. John was previously the President & CEO of Maple Trust Company which was purchased by Scotiabank in 2006. He is also a founding member of the Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP) now called Mortgage Professionals Canada, and was inducted into the Canadian Mortgage Hall of Fame in 2009. In this episode, John shares how the pandemic put pressure on the housing market and why the demand for housing will continue to be greater than the supply into the future. John also shares how lenders have had to adapt to this new normal over the past 18 months and the digital products and services they’ve introduced since the start of the pandemic. I love talking about real estate and especially when I can get an insider perspective on how we can best navigate the market, so I am very excited to share today’s episode with you!

The Real History of Index Funds & Passive Investing - Robin Wigglesworth, Author and Journalist for The Financial Times
In today’s episode, we’re being treated to a history lesson on index funds from my guest who wrote the book all about it. Robin Wigglesworth’s new book, Trillions: How a Band of Wall Street Renegades Invented the Index Fund and Changed Finance Forever, gives a broader history of index investing and how that has influenced the current markets. Robin Wigglesworth is an author and the global finance correspondent at the Financial Times since 2008. He focuses on the biggest trends reshaping markets, investing, and finance across the world by sharing long-form features, profiles, and columns. Robin’s new book is a fascinating look at the financial history of index funds and why it was the invention that Wall Street initially never wanted. In this episode, Robin shares how he fell into financial journalism and how his work allows him to be paid to learn. I was excited to talk to Robin because I thoroughly enjoyed his book, which is now going on my list as one of my favourite investing books, especially if you're a die-hard index investor like myself.

Love love love
Hey Jessica I am working hard on paying off $20000 in consumer debt. I’ve been soaking up every bit of information and advice from your show. I have started listening in Jan 2022 on episode #1 and currently on show #59 and I just can’t get enough! Thank you for all the work you put into this podcast you make a dry subject super fun and interesting!
If you’re an actual Financial Advisor - please avoid!
I always like listening to podcasts that relate to myself and what I’m doing in my life - so as a financial advisor I figured this would be right up my alley. The amount of hate I heard and felt towards my career made me feel extremely uncomfortable and attacked. Disappointing
Host talks a lot about herself
Lots of interesting guests, and I often find that I wish she can just sit back and let the guests talk more. Sometimes this feels like a two-person panel but presented in an interview format. I think the host has a very friendly personality, but the constantly interjection when the guest is talking is jarring.
