I may add a dash of sass to the personal finance world, but she adds a few cups at least!

What I love about Bridget’s personality and her writing style is that she’s real, she’s super smart and she’s downright hilarious. I mean, not many people can make the topics of debt, going back to school and investing in the stock market seem entertaining and fun.

In this episode, I start with asking about how Bridget’s childhood influenced her relationship with money, and from there we talk about how she went to university, got into debt, went back to university and essentially became a dragon from Dragon’s Den and a hard-core investor.

I just have a feeling that in like 5 years she’s going to be an actual dragon on Dragon’s Den and this episode will be my claim to fame. You go Bridget! I’m counting on you!

I mentioned a few resources and blog posts during the show, so here they are below. And remember, if you’d like to leave me a review on iTunes or Stitcher, I’ll give you a special shout out on a future episode!

Also, as a continuation on the theme of investing, next week’s episode will feature Barry Choi from Money We Have (who I mention to Bridget on this episode). We’ll be talking about DIY investing and index funds, so make sure you tune in for that!

    This was one was my favourite so far too! I’m new to your blog, so Hi! I’m loving the podcast so much I had to listen to the first 4 in a row in one sitting. (I tweeted you :)) Anyways, back to this episode. I really liked hearing about investing from a relatable person. I’m 26, living in Toronto, getting myself out of debt. Right away I went to all the sites she mentioned, and I’m going to get started with some investing hopefully this summer. I have all the apps set up on my phone, I’ve been watching my pretend stocks lol. Thanks so much for bringing new and exciting material, and for entertaining me on my commute! Keep it up!
    P.S I’m so impressed with all you Canadian female pf bloggers – it’s so cool to see what you are all doing.

    • Aww thanks so much! Your comment seriously made my day! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the podcast. The reason I started it was to share other people’s stories, get people talking and hopefully inspire people to take control of their finances. I definitely need to start doing that fake stock portfolio though. Sounds pretty cool!
