He puts my “radio voice” to shame! I should have known, he is a podcaster and TV personality after all.

I’ve got to say, this is probably one of my favourite podcast episodes (not to bash any of the episodes I’ve done up until this point, they are all amazing too!). Preet is such a cool, genuine guy and it was so nice to hear his story.

I mean, how many people do you know who went to school to be a brain surgeon, then pursued a career in race car driving and ended up becoming a well-known financial expert on TV? I guess never having a 5-year plan might be the way to go?

Before I get to the important links and book giveaway, I’ve got to hang my head in shame because I still haven’t crossed off 1) get a will and 2) get life and disability insurance off my list.

To be fair, I almost did. I made an appointment with a lawyer to get a will done, but had to cancel and just haven’t rescheduled it. But I will get both of these things done before Christmas, mark my words Preet! And you better too…I’m talking to you blog readers and podcast listeners!

    I love your podcast!

  2. Eric says:

    Excellent podcast Jessica, very entertaining. It”s nice to see another personal finance podcast with Canadian content.

  3. Connie says:

    I find the subject of personal finance very interesting & have found many different people have at least one idea that I can apply to own finances. I like Preets Ted talk about hating debt. After becoming debt free 11 years ago there is nothing I’m willing to in debt for. I would rather walk or ride my bike ( I live in rain country) than take out a car loan. My car is 16 years old and my mechanic told me I have at least another 5 years left in it.
    Keep spreading the word about personal finance Preet and thanks Jessica for having him on your podcast & having the links to the Ted talks.

    Preet was so entertaining to listen to! I really enjoyed learning more about his varied background.

  5. Pauline says:

    So… I didn’t know that we need to set up a will at the tender age of 20-something??? I think this would be a good topic to cover in future podcasts/blog post.

    • You got that right Pauline! As soon as I get a will (which will be soon!), I’m gonna find someone to talk to about wills more in-depth. I think that would be an interesting topic to cover either on my blog or podcast.

  6. This was a really fun podcast to listen to. Sounded like you both had a blast recording!

  7. Amanda says:

    Love the podcast and this one was particularly awesome! I’m learning so much!

  8. Prakash says:

    Definitely adding Preet’s books to the reading list. Such an interesting story of how he got into personal finance. Great and casual interview!

  9. Danielle says:

    I actually haven’t read any personal finance books yet but I’m looking forward to it.
