Our Editor's Take

The More Money Podcast clarifies confusing things about money to help listeners maximize wealth. Host Jessica Moorhouse founded MoorMoney Media and the Millennial Money Meetup series. She started the blog Mo' Money, Mo' Houses in 2011. Its popularity prompted this show.

Moorhouse had a happy childhood and wasn't impoverished. But her family didn't have extra money for allowance, college, or fun treats. Moorhouse put herself through college while living at home and working 30 hours per week. She wanted her children to have better options than that. Moorhouse began researching finance. She shares her expertise and interviews wealth experts on the podcast.

The More Money Podcast teaches listeners how to set a budget, save money, and start an emergency fund. Moorhouse focuses more on earning than saving. She believes building wealth is the best strategy. For college, the host suggests parents pay tuition and students pay living expenses. Moorhouse says people waste more money when it isn't theirs. She also says people shouldn't fear debt. They should manage it but use it to their advantage. An example is buying a car with cash versus using a low-interest loan and investing the money instead.

Wealth experts appear often on the More Money Podcast. One is Gabe Dunn, a podcaster, actor, and New York Times bestselling author. They talk about financial confusion. Their childhood involved parental addiction and periods of excessive spending followed by worry. The guest went to Emerson instead of attending a Florida college for free, leaving them with serious debt. Dunn saw a tattoo artist decline to give an 18-year-old a neck tattoo because that was a big decision at that age. Yet Dunn's college loan officer didn't hesitate to let an 18-year-old make a big debt decision. They tried pawning, shoplifting, and delivering Postmates to afford life. Despite books, a podcast, and a stand-up career, money remains the thing that makes Dunn cry the most.

With the More Money Podcast, Moorhouse wants to help listeners create financial freedom. Her advice is thoughtful, practical, and applicable. New episodes drop weekly.

399 The Proven System to Become a Millionaire - Author of Millionaire Mission and Founder and Host of “The Money Guy Show, Brian Preston

399 The Proven System to Become a Millionaire - Author of Millionaire Mission and Founder and Host of “The Money Guy Show, Brian Preston
I've been a big fan of Brian Preston and The Money Guy Show for years, so it was so fun having Brian on the show to talk money and discuss his new book Millionaire Mission: A 9-Step System to Level-Up Your Finances and Build Wealth. The reason I was initially drawn to Brian, besides his super friendly demeanour (and that amazing southern accent), is he just tells it like it is. No fluff. No BS. Just damn good financial advice. And that's because he has over 25 years of financial planning experience, so he's seen it all and he knows bad advice or people just trying to get clicks online when he sees it. But more than that, you can tell that he genuinely loves helping people improve their financial lives, which is likely why he's helped millions of people over the years get out of debt, save more money, and build wealth through his podcasts, YouTube channel, courses, social media posts, and his Abound Wealth Management company. For anyone looking for a clear guide on how to build wealth so they can eventually become a millionaire, Brian has some great strategies he shares in this episode as well as his book (which don't forget, I'm giving away a copy of!).

394 Why Women Need to Invest More Than Ever - Author of Invest Like a Girl, Jessica Spangler

394 Why Women Need to Invest More Than Ever - Author of Invest Like a Girl, Jessica Spangler
It's always exciting to have another Jessica on the show and I've got the amazing Jessica Spangler on the podcast today! Doctor by day and financial content creator by night, she has just come out with her first book called Invest Like a Girl aimed at empowering women to take control of their finances and build wealth. Because as the data shows, women are actually really, really good at investing. However, data also shows that many women are still hoarding cash instead of investing it, and this needs to change (especially since statistically we live longer than men so we need that extra money!). In this episode, we delve into what inspired Jessica to take her finances seriously and start teaching others about it on the side, what barriers women face when it comes to financial education, earning higher incomes and taking action with their money, and some practical steps to get started right after this episode. And one of those steps could be to check out my very own investing course called Wealth Building Blueprint for Canadians.

393 How to Get the Most Out of AIR MILES - President of AIR MILES, Shawn Stewart
Are you leaving money on the table by not collecting rewards? Or maybe you don't think it's worth the time and energy of signing up and remembering to scan your card (or use the app) to collect? Well, to hopefully change your mind and get you to start earning rewards on things you're already spending money on, for this episode, I'm joined by President of AIR MILES Shawn Stewart who shares what big changes have happened to the program, what innovations are to come, and how you can take advantage of this free program to earn miles and redeem for travel, merchandise and so much more. I've actually been an AIR MILES member since I was in my early 20s and it was the first rewards program I ever signed up to since I remember being told by my mom that if you're not collecting rewards, you're missing out on free money. And it's true. Over the years, I've been able to redeem my miles for gift cards, free groceries, and merchandise, and it costs me nothing to participate besides the time it takes for me to whip out my card (or the app) and scan it whenever I'm doing my shopping. I've always been of the mind that loyalty programs should be part of everyone's financial plan, so hopefully you'll learn a few things about why rewards are important, why you should take advantage, and what are the best ways to earn and redeem AIR MILES specifically. This episode of the More Money Podcast is sponsored by AIR MILES®. Sign up today and start earning rewards with the AIR MILES Reward Program™.

392 Breaking Free from Scarcity - New York Times Bestselling Author of Scarcity Brain and The Comfort Crisis, Michael Easter
Do you ever feel like no matter what you do there's never enough? Never enough time. Never enough stuff. And especially never enough money. If you said yes, you're not alone. For most of us humans, we're stuck in a scarcity loop without knowing how we got there or how to get out. Luckily, there is a way out, and New York Times bestselling author of Scarcity Brain, Michael Easter, is on the show to talk all about it. For your reference, the scarcity loop is: Opportunity -> Unpredictable Reward -> Quick Repeatability Once you understand this, you can start seeing how it appears in all aspects of your life and how it can especially impact your financial present and future. But as Michael shares in his book, although scarcity helped our ancestors survive in a world where there wasn't enough, it's actually hurting us in this new world of abundance. The only way to combat this is to become aware of our triggers and behaviours and reevaluate what success and fulfillment mean outside of consumerism.

391 Your Future Self Will Thank You: How to Retire Well - Author of Your Best Financial Life, Anne Lester
It's been a tough road for millennials and Gen Zs with mountains of student debt, recessions, layoffs, and housing prices going through the roof to deal with. But as my next guest shares in this episode, all hope isn't lost and it's still possible to live your best financial life and have a comfortable retirement. Anne Lester, author of Your Best Financial Life, has been hailed as a "pioneer and innovator" by Morningstar and has worked in all aspects of retirement for the past 30 years. In other words, she's seen plenty of ups and downs in the markets and people's financial lives and still believes that anyone can change their financial future if they follow the strategic path she sets out in her book. She was able to become "work optional" at 60 and hopes to teach as many people as she can how they can take control of their financial destinies and live a better financial life moving forward.

390 What Every Canadian Should Know About Money - Academic Director of McGill Personal Finance Essentials Benjamin Croitoru
When my Canadian listeners ask me "I want to get a hold of my money, but I don't know where to start, also I'm looking for something that's free..." that's when I direct them to one of the best free personal finance resources around — the McGill Personal Finance Essentials course. Having first launched in November 2019 as free way to improve Canadians' financial literacy, it now boasts over 200,000 participants, and lucky you (and me), I've got Dr. Benjamin Croitoru on the podcast to talk all about it! Benjamin serves as the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs and an Assistant Professor of Finance, McGill Desautels Faculty of Management. But more importantly, he's the Academic Director of the McGill Personal Finance Essentials online course and has been vital in its development and in helping so many Canadians level up their financial lives over the past 5 years. I wanted to bring him on the show to share why the course was built, what you can expect as a student, and some of the key things every Canadian should know about money. He even shares some of his best money tips, financial pitfalls to avoid and top book recommendations too. So I hope after you listen to today's episode, you'll take another step on your personal finance journey and take this free 8-module course.

389 Career First, Job Second: Breaking into the C-Suite - Co-Authors of Career Forward, Grace Puma & Christiana Smith Shi
What's the best path to carve out a successful career for yourself, especially if you're a woman who has to navigate unique biases and barriers like the gender pay gap and the motherhood penalty? Let's ask my next guests Grace Puma, former PepsiCo COO and Christiana Smith Shi, former Nike President of Consumer Direct. Not only have both women built decades-long careers from scratch reaching the coveted C-Suite, but they've also joined forces to share all the wisdom they've learned along the way in their new book Career Forward: Strategies from Women Who've Made It. The facts are that as women, it's still harder to reach certain career heights since we don't yet live in a perfectly equitable world. But that shouldn't stop us from trying, especially since it also means making it easier for future generations to get to the top. There are so many amazing pieces of career (and life) advice in this episode, but I think my favourite ones are thinking of your career as a growth stock and focusing on your career, not your job. I'll also be giving away a copy of their book, so make sure to visit jessicamoorhouse.com/contest to enter to win.

388 Money in the Shadow of Terminal Illness - Host of CBC's Sickboy and Founder of Snack Labs Jeremie Saunders

388 Money in the Shadow of Terminal Illness - Host of CBC's Sickboy and Founder of Snack Labs Jeremie Saunders
How would your relationship with money change if you had a terminal illness? Let me tell you right now, it would have a huge impact on it! This is why I wanted to have Jeremie Saunders on the show to share his story. He's the co-host of the Sickboy Podcast and lives with cystic fibrosis. From an early age, he knew that having CF would cut his lifespan short, which on the one hand made him live life to the fullest but on the other, meant he didn't think too far into the future when it came to his money. That is until he was introduced to a new drug that would lengthen his life exponentially. This meant that things like getting married and starting a family were no longer out of reach, but it also meant he needed to start thinking about tackling his finances and building long-term wealth. In this episode, Jeremie provides insight into his battle with CF, how provincial healthcare has played a significant role in his life and career, and how he hopes his Sickboy Podcast can not only put a spotlight on living with illness but why it's so important to have open conversations about health, wealth, and our own mortality.

387 Why Some People's Finances Improved During COVID - Author and Senior Economist Scott Fulford

387 Why Some People's Finances Improved During COVID - Author and Senior Economist Scott Fulford
And we're back with Season 18 of the More Money Podcast! I think it's finally not "too soon" to talk about the pandemic and what the heck happened (right?). That's why I invited Scott Fulford on the show, a senior economist at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the author of the newly released book The Pandemic Paradox: How the COVID Crisis Made Americans More Financially Secure. I know, that sounds a bit odd doesn't it? How could people have become more financially secure when all the news headlines talked about were layoffs and people struggling to pay their bills? Well, as Scott discovered in his research and interviews with Americans across the country, although many people did have a tough time riding out the COVID wave, the majority actually thrived financially. But why was this? That's what you'll learn by listening to the full episode. I'm also giving away a copy of Scott's book, so make sure to visit jessicamoorhouse.com/contest to enter to win!
