279 A Dragon's Secrets to Success - Manjit Minhas, Investor on Dragon's Den, Serial Entrepreneur & Podcast Host
On today’s podcast, I’m interviewing entrepreneur, Dragon investor, and new podcast host ! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t starstruck while interviewing Manjit since I am a huge fan of CBC’s Dragon’s Den. I couldn’t be more excited to share with you our conversation from how she became an entrepreneur as a young engineering student, to behind the scenes of Dragon’s Den as well as her newest venture as host of her podcast, . Manjit Minhas is the co-founder and owner of Minhas Breweries, Distilleries, and Wineries with her brother Ravinder Minhas. Since starting her business at the ripe age of 19 years old, Manjit has gone on to grow her business portfolio, which includes over 30 Canadian businesses stemming from the 6 seasons she’s been a Dragon investor on CBC’s Dragon’s Den. In November 2020 she decided to hit record on her conversations with fellow business leaders and CEOs by way of her podcast, “The Manjit Minhas Podcast” so that she could share their stories and insights into achieving success. She currently resides in Calgary, from which she was born and raised with her husband and two young daughters. Manjit believes there isn’t one set path to becoming an entrepreneur and her story is a great example of that. As long as you’re keen to learn and have the self-awareness to know what you don’t know then you’re already on the right path. I hope you find today’s episode just as inspiring as I did when I recorded it! For full episode show notes visit https://jessicamoorhouse.com/279
278 How to Think Like a Breadwinner - Jennifer Barrett, Author of Think Like a Breadwinner and Chief Education Officer at Acorns
This week on the podcast we’re asking the question, what does it mean to think like a breadwinner? How would your approach to spending, saving, and investing in your future change if you thought like the primary earner in your life? Luckily, the answers to those questions are exactly what my guest, , author of the upcoming book will be tackling. Jennifer Barrett is the Chief Education Officer at Acorns, a saving and investing app with more than 9 million users. She’s also a contributor to Forbes, as well as an advisor to three female-led startups and a featured money expert in the media. She lives in Brooklyn with her family, of which she is also the breadwinner. Following Jennifer’s own wake-up call to change her money mindset, she wants all women to know that they don’t have to think small when it comes to wealth-building. We discuss everything from what women should be investing in (spoiler alert, it’s not handbags and clothes) and how negotiating for a better future now will give you the biggest payday in the future. Jennifer’s book and our chat definitely reinforced what a positive ripple effect wealth-building can have on your life. For full episode show notes visit https://jessicamoorhouse.com/278

275 Enjoying the Journey to Financial Independence - Jamila Souffrant, Podcaster, Writer, Money Coach & Founder of JourneytoLaunch.com
A lot of the time when you start reading about F.I.R.E. (Financial Independence Retire Early), the stories you hear about how people achieved it can be pretty insane. Many people in the community can take living on less and saving and investing every extra dollar to the extreme, which can seem pretty intimidating or just unrealistic. Why can't you enjoy the journey to financial independence? Why can't you work towards building wealth and having more financial security without making so many sacrifices? Luckily I have Jamila Souffrant on the show, founder and podcast host of , who shares that it is possible to work towards financial independence and enjoy yourself at the same time. In this episode, she shares what inspired her to achieve F.I.R.E. and how her strategy is a bit more sustainable (and fun!) than some of the more strict paths others may take. Because at the end of the day, life is short and we need to enjoy every bit we can! It doesn't have to be an all-or-nothing situation. You can work towards having a better financial life, without having to sacrifice your happiness or comfort for years until you reach your goal.

274 How to Become a Master Negotiator - Jean-Nicolas Reyt, Negotiation Expert & Assistant Professor of Organizational Behaviour at McGill University
Negotiation is such an important part of setting yourself up for financial success and helping you build wealth over time. Just think, by negotiating your salary a few thousand dollars higher at the beginning of your job, that could have a major impact on future bonuses, raises, and salaries! Unfortunately, most of us weren’t taught how to negotiate and the examples we see on TV do not work in the real world. That’s why I have Jean-Nicolas Reyt on the show, who is a negotiation expert and Assistant Professor of Organizational Behaviour at McGill University. He teaches students every day what to do, and not to, when negotiation in every situation. Unlike what we may think, it’s not about being aggressive or manipulating the other party. It’s about doing your research, being confident in what you’re asking for, and ultimately finding a middle ground in which you, and whoever you’re negotiating with, find a happy outcome. As mentioned in the show, Jean-Nicolas has so many great tips and ideas on this topic, so make sure to subscribe to his newsletter Master Negotiators linked in the show notes.

Loved Meredith fineman’s episode!
“The qualified quiet”-people that have done the work but don’t know how to talk about it. Wow! Powerful stuff on the importance of self promotion and being loud instead of staying quiet. Loved the episode and can’t wait to listen to more. Highly recommend this podcast!
