HOW TO DO MONTREAL ON A BUDGET | Jessica Moorhouse
 
09:13
I recently visited Montreal with a group of friends (for the 3rd time!), and I'm telling you, that city is one of my favourites in the world. You literally feel like you're being transported to a mini-Paris, but you never have to leave Canada. In this video, I share some tips and tricks on how to do Montreal on a budget, what sights to see that are free or cheap, and some awesome (and inexpensive) food places you absolutely need to check out when you're in Montreal.

WHY SHOULDN'T STAY AT A JOB YOU HATE | Jessica Moorhouse
 
06:31
Do you consider yourself a job hopper? Are you ashamed of it and wish your resume or LinkedIn looked different? I've been there and totally feel you. If you look at my job history, I would totally look like a typical job hopper and for most of my adult life I was so embarrassed about it. But not that I've had some time to think about it, I can't believe I even wasted a second worrying about it! If I didn't move from one employer to the next when my workplace turned hostile, I was promised a raise and promotion (but never actually got it), or had a tyrant of a boss, I'd be miserable and making way less than I deserved. Job hopping was actually the best thing I could have done for my career, mental health and my finances and I explain why in this video.

How My Quarter-Life Crisis Led Me to Become a New Homeowner | Jessica Moorhouse
 
04:16
For my first ever vlog on my YouTube channel, I share some huge news! After years of wanting to be a homeowner, but resigning myself to renting because the housing market in Toronto is too expensive...I bought a place! I didn't buy a house life I originally hoped for, but I'm almost glad it happened that way. Instead, I bought a two-bedroom townhouse with my husband. We put 25% down on it to make our mortgage payments more manageable, but homeownership is a lot of work. Since we just moved into our place, we're learning a lot, and I can't wait to share more about our experience as new homeowners in future videos. I'm going to try my best to get a video up at least every two weeks, and they'll be going up on Wednesdays, just like my podcast episodes. Make sure to subscribe to my channel to follow along and give me a thumbs up if you like my first video! Don't forget to check out my blog post with more details, like what kind of place I bought, how much I paid for it, and why I decided to put so much money down against my financial advisors advice: http://jessicamoorhouse.com/big-secret-revealed-officially-homeowner/ -- Follow Jessica -- Blog: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jessi_moorhouse Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jessicaimoorhouse Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jessicaimoohouse Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/jessimoorhouse1/

HOW TO TRACK YOUR SPENDING IN EXCEL | Jessica Moorhouse
 
14:23
I know it sounds corny (I KNOW!) but since I started really, diligently tracking my spending...my world has been rocked. I've always been pretty good at managing my money, but the one thing I regret not doing consistently is tracking my spending. Instead, I would just budget in a way where I would pay myself first (allocate my net income towards my savings goals first), then pay my fixed expenses and bills, then whatever is left over...spend. And this worked fine, and is still a great way to stay on budget and not overspend. BUT...one thing it didn't help me with was get insight into my spending patterns. I had an idea of what I spent, but I never had a number, or numbers, that indicated where all my money went. Once I became self-employed over a year ago, I realized that I was super diligent with tracking all my business expenses, but I wasn't doing the same for my personal expenses. I wanted to change that, so my husband and I started tracking our spending and did it for an entire year. What we discovered was pretty interesting, and it really helped us stop spending money on stuff we didn't value, and start spending money on things we did value. I'm no perfect, and I still sometimes spend money on stuff that's not important to me, but by tracking my spending every month, now I can see in black and white what I'm spending my money on so I can do better. In this video I also share the hard numbers of what I spent my personal money on in 2017. I was pretty surprised by what I discovered, and just goes to show I still have some stuff to work on to be a better, more conscious spender.

NEST WEALTH REVIEW - ROBO-ADVISORS IN CANADA | Jessica Moorhouse
 
16:21
I review one of Canada's top robo-advisors, Nest Wealth, sharing some important facts about the company and doing a full tutorial on how to open an account and what it looks like once you're all set up. I'm personally a big fan of robo-advisors (I use them myself to invest for my future), because they are a very simple way to start investing right away, without you having to go to a bank or an office and talking to an investment advisor. Not only that, the fees! Omg the fees! It is so much cheaper to invest with a robo-advisor, because they invest you in low-cost ETFs, as opposed to high MER actively-managed mutuals funds. And why this is so important is because over the course of many years, those fees compound into thousands of dollars (if not hundreds of thousands). Last but not least, I'm a big fan of index investing. The ETFs that robo-advisors invest in for the most part track the stock market (I say the most part because there are other types of investments they invest in like REITs). By tracking the stock market (instead of trying to beat it), they historically outperform actively-managed mutual funds. So with way lower fees and historically better performance, what's not to love? Basically, if you're just starting out and you know this is the way you want to invest, a robo-advisor is a great way to get started today. Yes, you can do self-directed investing through a brokerage, but you may not have the knowledge, time or desire to do it, so going with a robo-advisor that makes you a portfolio and rebalances for you is definitely worth the extra cost compared to DIY investing in my opinion. To give you an idea of one such robo-advisor, and actually one of Canada's top 3 robo-advisors, here's my review on Nest Wealth that includes a tutorial on how to do their questionnaire to get a portfolio suggestion.

How Much Your Mortgage Is Really Costing You | Jessica Moorhouse
 
08:43
A big thank you to DUCA for sponsoring this episode of my New Homeowner video series. Right now, they have this very cool mortgage called the Community Hero mortgage. Essentially, it's a mortgage at a great rate, but it's also the first social purpose mortgage in that when you get it, DUCA will donate to Habitat for Humanity in the Greater Toronto Area. So if you're looking for a mortgage and want to help your local community, learn more at: https://www.duca.com/ --- Buying your first home is expensive, that's just how it is in today's world. But besides saving up for a down-payment and finding out what mortgage rate you can get, do you know how much interest you'll be paying on top of that? Here's the thing, this isn't something that many people talk about, and when I was researching it, there was hardly any information on it. When my husband and I bought our first place, we wanted to know how much interest we'd be paying on top of our principle. But no one could give us a clear answer. That's why I wanted to do this video on some important things you need to know about calculating your mortgage interest, and have a free download so you can calculate how much you'll be paying in interest too: http://jessicamoorhouse.com/mortgageinterest After plugging in our numbers, we found out that with our current interest rate and 25 year amortization period, we'd be paying over $100,000 interest! It's definitely got us thinking of paying out mortgage down even quicker and changing our amortization period after our 5-year term is up so we can pay less interest overall. -- Follow Jessica -- Blog: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jessi_moorhouse Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jessicaimoorhouse Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jessicaimoohouse Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/jessimoorhouse1/

TANGERINE MONEY-BACK CREDIT CARD REVIEW | Jessica Moorhouse
 
17:01
For my first ever credit card review (so expect many more to come!), I review the credit card that in my opinion is the best no-fee credit card in Canada. I'm talking about Tangerine's Money-Back Credit Card. It's a Mastercard that offers a ton more flexibility than most no-fee cards. To read my full review: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/tangerine-money-back-credit-card-review/ In terms of cash back, it offers 2% on 2-3 different spending categories of your choosing (2% if you get your money-back put back onto your credit card, 3% if you get it deposited into your Tangerine savings account). In this video, I go through all the different features, the pros, the cons, and break down pretty much everything you need to know about this card. To learn more about the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card, visit https://www.tangerine.ca/en/products/spending/creditcard ----------- **Disclaimer: This is a review. I am not in any way being compensated by Tangerine to produce this review video. The content is my own opinion and experiences, it is not an ad or an endorsement.

MYHERITAGE DNA TEST REVIEW - IS IT WORTH IT? | Jessica Moorhouse
 
06:11
Is it worth it? It's a question I ask myself a lot (aside from "Do I need it?") before buying something. For years, I would struggle with the idea that spending in general was bad, and you should do everything in your power to save and invest your money. Those were the smart things to do after all, right? Well yes, saving and investing are great things to do with your money, but you shouldn't feel guilty or ashamed for spending your hard earned money too! But, it's all about practicing value-based spending that's the key. And what I mean by that is being more mindful of your spending, so you're spending money on things that align with your values, bring you joy and fulfill you. Also, making sure that you're not overspending, spending beyond your means and getting into debt, or spending your money on stuff because you want to look like you're on trend or one of the cool kids so to speak. Spending, just like other parts of personal finance is personal. And it's important to remember that. So, what does value-based spending look like? Well, that's why I started this new series called "Is It Worth It?" I want to show you some of the things I buy that align with my values. Or, things that I think will align with my values, but end up being a total waste of money (so take it from me, don't buy them too!). For my first video in the series, I share my experience trying out a MyHeritage DNA Test. I've always been very interested in learning more about my background, so I decided to spend about $160 to see what results I got back. In the end, was it worth it? I had to say yes, but not because getting the results changed my life. In the end, it was just a bit of fun for me and my family. It brought me joy. And although it was almost $200, to me it was worth the money (and I could afford it, that's why I budget!). Let me know in the comments if you've ever tried a heritage DNA test before and what you thought of it. Was it worth it for you?

HOW SELF-LOVE CAN LEAD TO FINANCIAL SUCCESS | Jessica Moorhouse
 
10:29
You may not think that self-love and financial success have anything to do with each other, but in this video I share why they actually have everything to do with each other. If you don't love yourself, how can you expect yourself to be successful? How can you expect yourself to crush your debt, stick with your budget or start a money-making side hustle? You need to be confident in yourself, love yourself and absorb all of the positivity out there to be success. It's all the negative BS that's getting in your way.

DAY 1 - Taking the Greyhound from Toronto to Cincinnati - Money 20/20 Payments Race

I'm doing something insane, and it's called the Money 20/20 Payments Race, organized by Fintech Finance. What would you do if you got an email with the subject line "Crazy idea for you!" I almost deleted it, but curiosity got the best of me. It turned out to be a totally serious (and awesome) pitch to be a participant in the Money 20/20 Payments Race in the USA. I talked with the organizer on the phone (who is from the UK), and I was IN! I was terrified because I've never done anything like this before, but I am all about taking risks and pushing myself, so I need to put my money where my mouth was. So, here I am. Racing against 4 other participants, all from the the UK (I'm the only North American). We're racing from Toronto to Las Vegas, with a few checkpoints in between and challenges to complete every day. Whoever gets to Las Vegas first (and has completed all the challenges) wins! But it's not all about being the fastest. It also comes with one big caveat. We each have only one method of payment we can use. I've got chip and pin, which isn't that popular in the US. We also have to vlog our journeys and each transaction we make, so this video is day one 1 of 7, so enjoy!

WHY WE KEEP OUR MONEY SEPARATE (EVEN THOUGH WE'RE MARRIED) | Jessica Moorhouse
 
06:52
For this miracle of a video, I get my somewhat camera-shy but absolutely amazing husband Josh to chat with me about how we manage our money together. Instead of doing like most married couples do, which is combine all of their finances together, my husband and take a more together but separate approach. We split our finances 60/40 to pay all of our joint bills, but all of our saving, investing and personal spending is separate. We find that this works for us since we are pretty independent, and a nice bonus is it prevents us from judging the other's spending choices.

MONEY IN YOUR 20S: WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE IT SERIOUSLY | Jessica Moorhouse

Everybody's talking about YOLO in their 20s, but YOLO doesn't pay the bills or help you achieve a financially free life when you're older. Take it from me, as someone who did the uncool thing and got really into personal finance in her 20s, I am so glad (now that I'm in my 30s) that I didn't follow the herd. Sure, I had to limit my YOLOing and sacrificed a lot to get where I am today, but guess what, I don't regret a thing. I'm loving my life, and am even enjoying my 30s way more than my 20s! In this video, I share why you should care about your money in your 20s, why you shouldn't be afraid to get older, and how if you start being smart with your money earlier in life, you'll ultimately have a better life when you're older.

I want to obviously still continue to grow in my career as an online entrepreneur, but I don't want to work so much! I've become a bit of a workaholic, and that's really no way to live. I want to embrace life, focus on hobbies that bring me joy, and just not get all my fulfillment from work, work, WORK! So, check out my latest vision board for this year. I divide it into life goals and career goals, but I'm super excited about all of my goals this year. I did a ton of stuff in 2017, a lot of things I'm happy are off my plate, so I'm hoping to relax a bit this year and maybe live a bit of a slower life. I say that now, but we'll see what happens! Make sure to subscribe, like and comment below! I'd love to know if you have a vision board or what your goals for this year are! -- VIDEOS YOU MAY ALSO LIKE -- My review of last year's vision board (2017): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtGDkdKpBOg How I'm gonna add more balance into my life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZD4joL54fM&t=2s Last year's vision board (2017): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4t1dhumPTXo&t=349s -- Follow Jessica -- Blog: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jessi_moorhouse Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jessicaimoorhouse Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jessicaimoohouse https://www.pinterest.com/jessimoorhouse1/

The first Millennial Money Meetup took place on Sept. 14, 2016 in Toronto, and this is the live recording of the panel discussion.

WORK-LIFE BALANCE - HOW TO FIND BALANCE AS AN ENTREPRENEUR | Jessica Moorhouse
 
07:01
For my first video of 2018, I wanted to share the 3 things I'm going to change so I can have more balance in my business and personal life. I'm so happy that I was able to finish my first year as a self-employed entrepreneur on a high note. It was a crazy year, and I'll get more into exactly what I accomplished in 2017 in next week's video, but overall it was one with more highs than lows. But even though I was able to prove to myself that I can earn a living on my own, the one thing I didn't do a very good job of was having balance in my life. I worked a lot of long hours, most weekends, and rarely didn't have my phone within an arm's reach. These are things I want to change so I can be more productive but work less hours, continue to build my brand and business, and just love my life for what it is. It's a luxury that my time is my own since I'm my own boss, but it sure didn't feel that way in 2017. This year, I'm taking my time back and that means making some big changes. Changes I'm Going to Make: -Will be posting new blogs posts/videos every Tuesday instead of Monday -Will be sending out my weekly newsletter on Tuesday instead of Monday -Will stop using my phone as an alarm clock and will try not to be tethered to it all day long -Will have a set morning routine so I don't feel stressed every morning, and feel the need to check my email right away. What are some of the things you plan on changing in your life to add more balance this year?

In the personal finance blogging community. J.D. Roth is considered a very big deal. He started his blog, Get Rich Slowly, early on, became one of the go-to resources for personal finance information, and he was able to sell it for I believe 7-figures, helping reach his goal of early retirement. And during his early retirement, he started a second blog focused more on being the CFO of your life called Money Boss, which also took off and was always nominated for Plutus Awards at FinCon every year. Well, at a certain point, J.D. realized he wanted his original blog back. Since he was in the financial situation to afford it, in the fall of 2017 he bought it back and now he’s back at it (and I’m loving it!). So, that’s a little bit of what we talked about this episode, but we also dive deep into getting your financial life in order, taking your finances seriously (as seriously you would a high-powered job in a big corporation), and what steps you need to take to reach financial independence like he was able to.

Many of you may already know this about me, but I am a total celebrity news junkie. I know it’s silly, but I think I just like the fantasy of it all. Plus, that life is just so far removed from my own, it’s kind of like watching an episode Teen Mom. It’s fascinating and entertaining, but I’m really glad that it’s not my own reality. With that said, I’ve been a long-time reader of PerezHilton.com, going back probably when he started his blog back in 2005. I’m not lying when I say I’ve gotten into a routine of checking his website at least once per day, which is how I discovered his video about filing for bankruptcy when he was younger. I couldn’t believe he, a celebrity blogger, also had a personal finance story to tell, and I wanted to know more! So, after watching his video, I tweeted at him saying I’d love to have him on my podcast, and to my delight, he said yes! And within a week, I had a recording of our interview together and could not wait to share it with you for Season 6 of the Mo’ Money Podcast! In our interview together, we talk about it all. His money mistakes, the lessons he’s learned, how he hopes to achieve financial independence through passive income streams and real estate investing, and what he’s going to teach his kids about money when they grow up. I hope you love this episode as much as I do, because it really was so much fun to record!

I’ve been chatting to a lot more guests this season who’ve been able to achieve financial independence in their 30s, and wow is it inspiring! Because really, they didn’t do anything crazy to achieve financial independence. They just made that their main goal and went for it! And Chris Reining, who was able to reach financial independence at 35 and retire at 37, is no different. He didn’t come from wealth, and although near the end of his career his was earning good money, he was by no means “rich”. He worked in cyber security in Madison, Wisconsin and did two main things to reach his goal of saving up $1,000,000 for retirement. Practice Value-Based Spending This term “value-based spending” has been popping up a lot more, and for good reason. It’s taking the extreme out of being totally frugal or a shopaholic. It is giving you permission to spend your money (because after all, that’s what it’s for), but also giving you that balance and perspective so you spend it wisely. By practicing value-based spending, not only will you feel more joy when you do spend money, you’ll also find that there’s a lot more money available to save for your future goals. Chris shares that when he started practicing this, he found it easy to cut out coffee, cable and his expensive hobby of flying planes. They didn’t align with his values, and so he started only spending money on what did, and then making a conscious effort to live below his means so he could continue to save up and invest for his goal of early retirement. Earn More Money As Chris says in our interview together, at a certain point, there’s no where else to cut back, and at that point you’ll need to figure out how to earn more money. What Chris did to grow in his career and earn a higher salary was find a mentor, learn some new skills and push himself to take public speaking lessons by joining Toastmasters. By doing this, he was able to earn more and reach his goal of financial independence that much sooner.

VISION BOARD BREAKDOWN - HOW TO CRUSH YOUR GOALS LIKE ME | Jessica Moorhouse
 
11:18
Last year, in 2017, I made my first vision board. I had just quit my 9 to 5 job and desperately needed some sort of visual guide to help me figure out my goals, both in life and in my career. I thought of making a vision board because I had a few friends who swore by them, and I thought "What do I have to lose?" And to take it one step further, I recorded it for a YouTube video to put those goals and aspirations into the world. Now, they were out there permanently, so I had to stay accountable and try my best to make them happen. And make them happen I did. Here's my breakdown of how well I did in achieving my 2017 goals that I put up on my vision board.

WHY YOU SHOULDN'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON DESIGNER SUNGLASSES | Jessica Moorhouse
 
01:49
It's Wednesday, and I've got some #WednesdayWisdom for ya! Don't waste your money on designer sunglasses. I should know, I did! 5 years ago, I thought I would splurge and treat myself to some $200 Dior sunglasses. They were actually on sale because I got them at an outlet mall, but still...$200 for a bunch of plastic. I got my use out of them, I won't lie, but now that 5 years have passed, I hate them. They're outdated, they look too big for my face, and I'm annoyed at myself that I bought them just because I thought it would make me feel more important and fancy. But, because I spent so much money on them, I feel guilty for wanting to give them away or throw them out. So, I'm wearing them. At least I know that I won't make the same mistake twice. So, for my tip in this video, don't waste your money on designer glasses. No one cares if your glasses are designer are not. Just get some generic ones that cost a fraction of the price and spend your money on something you won't kick yourself for in 5 years.

This episode of the Mo’ Money Podcast is brought to you by Planswell. Planswell is currently offering listeners not only a free financial plan, but also up to $20,000 worth of investments managed for free for the first year. Visit https://planswell.com/momoney to get started. I know I say this for almost every episode, but this seriously is one of my favourite interviews. And it could be because when I met Shannon Lee Simmons, author of Worry-Free Money and founder of The New School of Finance, for the first time, I immediately clicked with her. There aren’t too many financial planners out there who make money fun and cool, but she does and I’m so glad she was able to share her wisdom and personality on the podcast! We talk about a lot of different topics in this episode, but there are two main points that we touch on. First, that budgeting doesn’t have to be boring or restricting, especially if you try out her method of not categorizing all of your variable expenses. I know for me, that’s what I used to do, and I would always end up kicking myself for overspending on groceries one month or spending too much on eating out the next. Instead, just set aside an amount of money you can spend, and spend it until it reaches zero (and not more than that). If you do that, you’ll free yourself from the guilty of not matching your budget perfectly, but you’ll still won’t be spending more than you want. It’s simple really. So simple that I have no idea why we all over-complicate budgeting! Another big topic we tackle is the idea of comparing our financial situation to those of our peers. This is something that is absolutely normal and not something to be ashamed up. We want to keep up with our peers (who doesn’t?) and we want to do whatever it takes so we don’t fall behind. That being said, we don’t have all the information. We don’t know how much our peers earn, how much they spend, or what their net worth is. So really, we shouldn’t try to keep up with the Jones’ because we actually have no idea what’s going on with the Jones’ financials. Maybe they got a big inheritance which is why they could afford to buy a house. Maybe they are actually really frugal in their day-to-day lives which lets them afford those fancy vacations. Maybe they just have different values than us and are just really good at showing that good life on Instagram. The important thing to remember is we should put the focus back on ourselves. Are we happy with where we’re at? Are we spending on things that match our values? Are we meeting our financial goals? I probably could have talked to Shannon for another hour, but I called it at the 45-minute mark. That being said, I highly recommend her book (I seriously loved it!). --- For full episode show notes: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/151 ---Follow Jessica-- Blog: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jessi_moorhouse Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jessicaimoorhouse Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jessicaimoohouse Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/jessimoorhouse1/

Joining me again on the podcast, and now no longer an anonymous blogger at Frugalwoods, Elizabeth Willard Thames is the newly published other of Meet the Frugalwoods. Not a “how-to” book on living that frugal life or reaching financial independence, but her personal story of how she was trying to check-off life’s checklist only to realize, that checklist wasn’t making her happy and didn’t align with her values anyway. I’m pretty sure most of us can identify with this. How many of us have been checking off things throughout our lives without really taking some time to think about whether what we’re doing or achieving is actually making us happy or bringing us fulfillment? I know I was doing that exact thing up until a year ago. I got my degree (check!), got married (check!), got a corporate job in Toronto’s financial district (check!), and by anyone’s standards was “making it.” But it didn’t feel like that to me, which is why I did a crazy thing and quit my job to work for myself. That’s why I totally get Liz’s story in her book. I can relate to it on such a personal level. Heck, I even fantasize about moving to the country (in the Maritimes) with my husband in the next few years. Now, I’m not sure if that’ll actually happen, but I am definitely taking a page out of Liz’s book by trying to be more intentional with my life and also practicing sustainable frugality. To me, that means spending my money on stuff that brings value to my life, and not spending money on stuff that doesn’t. Also being strategic so I can maximize my dollars so there’s more money to save and invest for my future. To me, this book was a great in-depth look into someone’s personal finance journey. I really loved this book, and I hope you do too! --- For full episode show notes: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/149 ---Follow Jessica-- Blog: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jessi_moorhouse Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jessicaimoorhouse Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jessicaimoohouse Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/jessimoorhouse1/

[Ep. 128] How to Earn Passive Income by Real Estate Investing

Long description: I love these Listener Series episodes, because I get to chat with super inspirational podcast listeners like Tracy Ma who has built a stellar real estate portfolio over the past decade (and is sharing how the heck she did it). First off, I love Tracy’s story because she is evidence that you do not need to come from money to get into the real estate game. As she put it, she had a fairly rough upbringing. Her family was poor, so she knew that in order to change her financial situation, she’d need to work hard and be strategic in terms making her money grow. She was eventually led to real estate investing, and now owns a number of properties in Canada earning her passive income. That all being said, she does caution anyone listening that real estate investing isn’t for everyone. There is a ton of risk involved, it can be very time consuming and you really do need to know what you’re doing. Luckily, she blogs about her journey and what she’s learned on her own blog Financial Nirvana Mama. Thanks so much Tracy for chatting with me for this episode, it was a pleasure!
