For this episode, I interview a man many people know just as the Canadian Couch Potato. Dan Bortolotti started his Canadian Couch Potato blog in 2010, and it has since become one of the go-to online resources for learning about DIY investing.
I can’t tell you how many people I know who swear by his model portfolios! And if that wasn’t cool enough, Dan recently started his own podcast specifically to teach people about index fund and ETF investing.
Besides being a very popular blogger, Dan is also a financial planner. I was lucky enough to sit down with Dan face-to-face for this interview, and man did he not disappoint. He really does know his stuff and got me fired up to really look at my investments and change things up (which I did and will write about very soon!).
Dan also shares a number of great investing resources that I’m gonna include here, and I hope you all take advantage of the $50 bonus you can get when you sign up with Wealthsimple, one of the major robo-advisors in Canada that makes ETF investing…simple.
