It’s been well over 2 years since I’ve had well-known personal finance expert Kelley Keehn on the podcast (she was featured on episode 131 back in Nov. 2017 if you want to check that out), and she’s back to chat with me about her new best-selling book Talk Money to Me.
If you are looking for a new book, specifically for Canadians, about all the things you should know about money management, debt, credit and mindset, you’ll definitely want to grab a copy of her book. It’s not written like your typical personal finance advice book, telling you what to do and not to do. Instead, Kelley weaves in his wisdom by sharing stories and scenarios based on all of the people she’s been able to talk to and help over the years in her career as a financial literacy advocate.
The reason she wanted to write this book is because she wanted to write a book to open up the conversation and to just make people not only feel good about their money, but about money in general. Our pasts really do have a big impact on how we think, feel and manage our money as adults. Luckily, you can change all of that, as long as you own up to that past and become intentional with how you view and interact with money moving forward (and of course taking some of Kelley advice in her book!).
