Go To Money Podcast

I have been listening to Farnoosh for a few years and it So Money remains my go to for all things finance. It feels like a personal conversation and I’m empowered learning from strong women in finance! Tons of great guests and I would recommend having a listen (even if you aren’t in the USA there is lots to takeaway!)

Diving into the deep end of financial literacy! Thank you Farnoosh!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Farnoosh.

My husband and I can't thank you enough. We are two people who grew up in very loving, but low-income earning families saddled with generations of debilitating money stories.

My parents were amazing, but were impulsive spenders and did go bankrupt when I was a child. The fights they had over money planted the seeds for a very toxic money-mindset in me. Talking about money with anyone always put my stomach into knots. My husband has also struggled with his own money stories. When we had our first child in 2020, we knew that we needed to put a stop to the recurring money patterns in our families and create real wealth nd healthy money habits. Although we are constantly coming up against these old money stories, the more we talk money, the smaller those monsters get. It's amazing! My husband and I are holding hands and diving into the deep end of the world of finanical self-education and your podcast has been such a gift to us. We are tackling our debts, diversifying our income, strategizing to bring in more income at our work, and investing our money in RRSPs/TFSA's (Canadian equivilant to IRA accounts). We are VERY excited to teach our son about the miracle of compound interest, and we are putting money away every month for his post secondary education. Huge!

Thank you for being so clear and consistent with your information, and for making financial literacy so accessible to those of us who didn't come from families who knew this information.

Lots of love
Meaghan
