383 Why You Don't Have to Love Your Job - Simone Stolzoff, Author of The Good Enough Job
I've been teasing this episode throughout the season because Simone Stolzoff's book just so happens to be one of the best books I've read all year (and I can't shut up about it). In the personal finance space, we often talk about working, earning an income, getting raises and promotions, and the ultimate dream of having a career you're passionate about. But the reality is... work is still work even if it is your passion. Not only that, there are a ton of downsides to working a job you're passionate about as Simone shares stories about in his book. Maybe there is something to be said for keeping your life and livelihood separate. Maybe you don't have to be passionate about your job but can funnel that passion into your personal life instead. Maybe Mark Twain was full of crap when he was quoted as saying "Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life." As a journalist, designer, author and now someone who quit his 9-to-5 to work for himself, Simone joins me on the podcast to discuss why having a job that's good enough may actually be what we should be striving for instead of a career that tries to fulfill us in every possible way.

382 Wealth, Women and the Ambition Penalty - Stefanie O'Connell Rodriguez, Writer and Founder of Too Ambitious
Why is there still a gender pay gap? Why are women so often criticized or penalized for being ambitious and career-focused? Why is it so much harder for women to build the same kind of wealth and achieve the same form of success as men when they follow the same rules? These are some big questions to ask, which is why I invited back on the show to try to answer them. Since Stefanie was first on , all the way back in 2016, a lot has changed since then. Over the past few years, she's launched the website as well as an award-winning newsletter of the same name to tackle topics often overlooked in the personal finance space such as the gender pay gap, the motherhood penalty, and other barriers that women in particular face when it comes to building wealth and successful careers compared to their male counterparts. In our discussion together, Stefanie not only shares her take on some of the hot-button issues, but she also brings receipts in the form of hard data and academic studies.

The Canadian Guide to Getting Rich (Slowly) - Adrian Bar a.k.a Canadian in a T-Shirt, YouTuber
This is a very special episode for all my Canadian listeners who are also fans of Canadian personal finance YouTuber . Having amassed over 140,000 subscribers on YouTube and millions of views, Adrian has been consistent with his get-rich-slowly approach to teaching Canadians about taxes, investing, and saving their money. And what's even more exciting about having him on the show is I had Adrian over at my home studio to do the recording! I haven't done this since 2019, and it was seriously such a blast talking about his journey from working in AI to becoming a full-time content creator, his investment philosophy and strategies he lives by, and of course his top money tips for listeners like you.

The Art of Reinventing Yourself with Mary Sanders - Olympian and Author of 9 Lives by 35
What's it like to be an Olympian, a Cirque du Soleil performer, and a Vice President of Entertainment and Pictures for Shark Tank Robert Herjavec's company? Well, that's why I've got my next guest on the show to tell me, in addition to sharing the lessons she's learned about reinventing herself (multiple times) which she documents in her new book . Mary learned the value of a dollar early in life when her dad passed away when she was 8 and her mom had to raise her and her siblings on a single income. Inspired by her dad's legacy as a Big Ten Champion, she started taking gymnastics seriously and soon became a two-time Canadian Champion in Rhythmic Gymnastics. Keen to reach her full potential, she started competing for the U.S. and eventually made it to the 2004 Olympics. But what happens when you've aged out of professional sports? You need to reinvent yourself, which is what Mary did by starting a new career with Cirque du Soleil. But after several years as a performer, she realized she needed to pivot again, which brought her to her current career in business. Mary's story of starting from almost nothing to becoming a champion gymnast to then having to switch careers multiple times should serve as inspiration for us all that life isn't a straight and narrow path and it's okay to experience setbacks in life. What's important is to keep going, changing, and being open to what life has in store for you next. For full episode show notes visit: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/380
Balancing Wealth and Well-being with Mick Heyman - CFA and Author of Mellow Your Money
Money isn't everything, and it most certainly shouldn't be the thing that dictates where your life takes you (or holds you hostage). No one knows this better than Mick Heyman, author of . After working in wealth management for 40 years, he realized he wasn't happy where he was and had been chasing the money to a life he couldn't even recognize anymore. That's when he made a big change, moved from Louisville, Kentucky to San Diego, and finally started living life on his terms. His years of experience in finance and life change (that turned out to be one of the best decisions he ever made) inspired him to share his experience and best financial tips with others in his new book so we all can learn how to mellow our money a bit more.

The Inclusive Workplace Revolution - Ayo Owodunni, Author of The Immigrant View and City Councillor in Kitchener, Ontario
It’s not easy immigrating to a new country and trying to navigate a new workplace with different shorthand, customs, and rules… especially when that workplace isn’t set up so all employees feel seen, heard, and safe no matter their background. This was Ayo Owodunni’s initial experience when he immigrated to Canada from Nigeria back in 2016, before he became a City Counsellor for Kitchener Ontario and a management consultant for large-scale organizations such as Spotify, Canada Life, Microsoft, Thomson Reuters, CIBC, TMX Group and Hydro One. Seeing as over the past 5 years, Canada has welcomed over 1.5 million immigrants, with 6 out of 10 being economic migrants with years of professional experience and education, Ayo realized fairly quickly in his work that big change needed to happen on the institutional level. This is what inspired him to write his new book, , to help companies develop a more inclusive culture and take advantage of the extensive skill sets that newcomers to Canada bring to the table as employees. In this episode, we discuss the specific challenges that immigrants may face in the workplace, the qualities of inclusive leadership, the importance of cultural intelligence, as well as practical steps for building a harmonious and diverse team.

great and make more podcasts
Great Canadian finance podcast
Finally a podcast about personal finance in Canada! The guests are great and the information is varied and applicable. I highly recommend this podcast.
While I do enjoy the content for the most part, the host routinely denigrates white males on several episodes, which makes it tough to listen to.
