Why Staying at a Job You Hate Is Actually Financially Unhealthy | 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 to Do Montreal on a Budget | Jessica Moorhouse

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.

MyHeritage DNA Test - 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 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/

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.

Goals for 2018 - My Vision Board for This Year | Jessica Moorhouse
 
13:10
Hey y'all! So this is the second part of my vision board video. I did a video breaking down/reviewing my 2017 vision board, and this video is showing you my new vision board for 2018! This year is all about balance and focusing on the positive relationships in my life. 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/

Why My Husband & I Don't Combine Our Finances | 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.

What You Should Do After an Interest Rate Hike | Jessica Moorhouse
 
07:22
First off, do NOT panic. Secondly, an interest rate hike is you're wake up call to start paying attention to your debt. If you've got a variable rate mortgage, home equity line of credit, unsecured line of credit or student loans...it's time to start paying them off because that debt just got a heck of a lot more expensive. I explain more about what the Bank of Canada's recent overnight rate hike means, what you can do about it, and a little bit of tough love to those of you who got a little loosey goosey with borrowing more money than you should have.

Tracking Your Spending - Why It's Important & How to Do It | 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.

DAY 1 - Taking the Greyhound from Toronto to Cincinnati - Money 20/20 Payments Race
 
13:14
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!

For my first periscope of 2016, I talk about a topic not many of us like to talk about...taxes. They may not be fun to do, but we all have to file our taxes every year, so to make things a bit easier and less stressful, I share my top tax tips so you'll be more organized and informed by the time you're ready to file your taxes. I also mention two important things in this video. The first being that I've created an awesome and FREE tax preparation checklist. This checklist shows you all of the documents you may need to file your taxes so you aren't left thinking "Am I forgetting something?". You can grab you copy of my tax prep checklist at jessicamoorhouse.com/taxtips The second thing I mention is that I've got a promo code to save you money on using UFile to file your taxes. If you use the promo code you'll save 15% on the tax software, so make sure to visit jessicamoorhouse.com/taxtips to take full advantage. -- 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/

Catechism | Directed by Jessica Moorhouse (Short Film)
 
14:13
Before launching my personal finance blog and podcast in 2011, I actually went to university to study film. My dream was to become a film editor, so I went to Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC to pursue a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Film Production (graduating in 2009). It was a 4-year intensive program with only 30 students. It was so intense that after 2 years all students had to complete a technical and written exam and those students who scored the lowest were kicked out of the program. For our final year, every student had to direct and produce a short film. I ended up directing, producing, writing and editing my film (hell, I even drove the equipment van most days), and since I've got a quirky sense of humour, I ended up making a very quirky movie. This film, entitled Catechism, is a dark comedy about premarital sex. My now husband sound designed the whole film and my best friend Kelly Dale was the cinematographer. Besides being incredibly proud that I pulled this whole thing off (making a movie is harder than it sounds), my film won a few awards, was screened at a number of prominent film festivals (ie. Vancouver International Film Festival) and got a distribution deal with Ouat Media. Since the deal was for 5 years, I wasn't allowed to post this film online, but now that that time has passed, I can finally share it on YouTube. I hope you all enjoy it. :) -- 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/

Invest with Nest Wealth, Canada’s largest independent digital wealth management platform, and get 3 months free. Visit learn.nestwealth.com/jessicamoorhouse to get started. 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.151] Worry-Free Money - Shannon Lee Simmons, Author & Founder of The New School of Finance

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/

Paytm Canada Review, Tutorial & Promo Code | Jessica Moorhouse
 
13:21
You may not have heard of Paytm until now, but that doesn’t mean you won’t start hearing about it more very soon. It's already one of the biggest apps in India with over 230,000,000 users! To read my full review and learn more about Paytm, visit: https://jessicamoorhouse.com/paytm-canada-review/ Also, use my promo code MOMONEY to get $10. You just need to make an account, use the promo code, link a bill to your account, then once you pay a bill of at least $50, you will receive $10 just like that. HOW DOES PAYTM WORK? Basically, it's like a chequing account that’s not owned by a major bank, doesn’t charge you any fees, and helps you earn rewards. Not to get you confused, Paytm is not a bank. It’s a mobile payment platform. Its sole purpose is for you to load your account with money and spend it through one of the 5,000 Canadian merchants you can link your account to. While you can’t earn interest on your money, like some of the banks’ chequing accounts offer, there are no fees and you earn rewards for every purchase or bill payment. HOW TO PAY YOUR BILLS WITH PAYTM One of the most popular uses for Paytm is for bill payments. You can easily set up all your bill payments, and earn rewards for doing it. If you’re wondering what kind of bill payments, almost any type. You can pay your utility bills, property taxes, credit card bills, insurance, internet, tuition…the list goes on and on! Another great thing about the app is if you want to pay your bills with it, Paytm won’t let you forget. You can easily set up notifications through the app so you’ll be reminded when a bill is about to be due. HOW TO EARN PAYTM POINTS There are a number of other ways you can easily earn more Paytm points, and here they are listed below: -Pay a bill and get 1 Paytm point for every $1 paid -Link a new biller to your account get 250 points -Verify your profile and get 1,000 points -Pay 3 different bills in a month and get 500 points -Pay 5 different bills in a month and get 1,000 points HOW TO REDEEM YOUR PAYTM POINTS First and foremost, Paytm points cannot be converted into cash.Instead, you earn points so you can redeem them for gift cards. And there are some pretty sweet gift cards available to redeem such as: Uber Foodora Instacart Indigo Amazon.ca Vistaprint Clearly Warby Parker Esso Hotels.com **Disclaimer: This is a review. I am not in any way being compensated by Paytm to produce this review video. The content is my own opinion and experiences, it is not an ad or an endorsement. Paytm did not review, give feedback or influence this video in any way. --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/

Why You Should Care About Your Money in Your 20s | 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.

*Note, it may say Alison Green on the video card, but it's actually Mrs. Frugalwoods! Bad Jessica, typos will always be my downfall. That being said, to listen to my interview with Alison Green from AskAManager.org: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PJsRxNc-8c --- Not long after I recorded this episode of the podcast with the lovely Mrs. Frugalwoods, I got to meet her in-person at FinCon 2016. In case you don't know, FinCon is a massive personal finance blogging conference (this year there were over 1,200 attendees) so it's a miracle I found Mrs. Frugalwoods amongst the crowd! Mrs. Frugalwoods did not disappoint in the flesh either. She was just as sweet, genuine and friendly as she came off during our interview together. She also has this calmness about her that I seriously want to just bottle up and store (or sell). The big reason I wanted her on my show is to find out just how she did it. How did she manage to escape the city and live in the woods with her husband and baby? How did she manage to get out of the rat race, away from a world obsessed with materials, and live the simple life like so many of us dream about? Well, she spills all her secrets in this episode, so make sure to take some notes! A lot has to do with embracing extreme frugality, which she explains is very different than being a minimalist. Definitely something I hope to incorporate a tiny bit more into my life, and you may want to too.

I never used to take risks in life. I was pretty much a scaredy cat until my mid-20s if I'm honest. Why? I have no idea, but for some reason many of the choices I made up until that point were driven by fear. Eventually, I realized I couldn't go on like this. I had dreams, and I didn't want to live my life with regret. So, slowly I started pushing myself out of my comfort zone and trying new things. In this video I share how taking risks in life helped me get where I am today, and why I think everyone should try to do one new or "scary" thing per week help them grow as a person.

AnthroDesk Standing Desk Converter Review | Jessica Moorhouse
 
10:07
One question I get a lot of people who run a home-based business is what business expenses are actually worth it? You don't want to spend too much money (especially when you're just starting out), but you do also want to invest in your business to make it successful. For this video, I talk about one business expense that may be 100% worth it. I review AnthroDesk's Standing Desk Converter to see if it really does help with my aching back issues and makes me more alert and productive. I also show you how to put it together. I was able to put it all together in 18 minutes, but I'm pretty sure you could do it in 10-15 (I'm just terrible at putting furniture together!). I also show you different set ups, and the best set up if you work with a laptop and second screen like me.
