    How to Manage Your Money with Confidence, with Romana King

    How to Manage Your Money with Confidence, with Romana King

    I ran across an interesting stat from Zolo recently. It said that while 79% of Canadians are confident in their ability to make ends meet, 79% would run out of money within 3 months if they lost their job. There seems to be a contradiction there, so I asked my guest this week for her perspective.
    Romana King is an award-winning personal finance writer, a real estate expert, and the Director of Content for Zolo, the largest independent real estate marketplace in Canada. I sat down with Romana recently to talk about financial literacy, and how confident Canadians really are in their money management skills.

My tip on this...

Most important tips... of 27 May.
Loved the simplicity with which you laid out the steps to get rich - spend less than you earn!

I felt that there is one more tip that should be sent out - never live on Rent if you have the time! The only consideration on this (time) is that you should not live on rent if you you can stay long enough at one place to take care of the massive transaction cost of property!
