It was one fateful day when 17-year-old Lesley-Anne Scorgie went viral because of her financial acumen. Not only did she get featured in newspapers across Canada, but she also landed a spot on the Oprah Winfrey show because she aspired to become a millionaire by 25 and was well on her way to reaching that goal.
As Lesley-Anne says in our interview together, the Oprah effect is real and her short segment on the show catapulted her career into one of Canada’s top money experts today, with four books under her belt, regular TV appearances, and speaking gigs. Not only that, she launched her own money coaching business called MeVest, and focuses on teaching others how they can take control of their financial future as she did.
In this episode, we discuss what inspired her to get into personal finance at such a young age, what she learned from striving towards an aggressive goal in her 20s (spoiler, she wishes she enjoyed her 20s a bit more), and what some of the most common concerns and struggles her money coaching clients have.
