I can’t believe we’ve already arrived at the end of Season 4 of the More Money Podcast. With 114 episodes and 2 years of podcasting under my belt, I can honestly say that starting this podcast has hands-down been one of the best decisions I ever made.

To wrap up the season, I thought it was time for another solo episode. So, I took some time last week to lay on my couch therapy-stay and record pretty much anything that came into my head.

I share what it’s been like since I quit my full-time job to work for myself. How it’s been being a homeowner for almost a year now (spoiler: it’s been awesome and expensive). And lastly, I share what I’ve got coming up for the second half of the year and some ideas I’ve been considering for Season 5 of the podcast, and just my community-building efforts at large.

Ideas I’ve Got for the Future

For instance, would you be interested in a special series on the podcast dedicated to making money and entrepreneurship? I know there are a ton of podcasts out there focused on that already, but I find none of them truly talk about the financial aspects of owning a business or starting a side hustle.

Another idea I had was to start doing mini meetups in my city of Toronto (and maybe in Vancouver when I’m in town). I love doing my Millennial Money Meetups, but they’re a pretty big ordeal and it would be neat to do something a bit smaller and more intimate.

My last idea was maybe to start some sort of book club in my Facebook group. Logistically, I’m not exactly sure how to do this besides integrating a Facebook live aspect to it, but I think it would be a great way for us all to learn and then chat about different aspects of personal finance.

Just putting that out there, so if you have some opinions or have any other ideas you’d like me to explore, please let me know by tweeting me or emailing me!

A Huge Thank You for Supporting the Podcast!

Aside from me just talking about me for a good 30 minutes, what I really want to express closing out this season is how thankful I am for you listening and subscribing to my podcast. It was a passion project that quickly turned into something real that people binge-listen to! I never thought I could affect or reach people like I am through this podcast, and it’s honestly the best feeling in the world to feel that type of strong connection.

It’s something I never really felt with just the blog, so seriously a big thank you for supporting the More Money Podcast, and I’m excited to kick-off Season 5 of the show this fall. Make sure to subscribe on iTunes, SoundCloud, or YouTube if you haven’t already to be updated when Season 5 starts, or sign up for my weekly newsletter to stay in the loop!
