Glen James wants you to know that money doesn’t really matter.
Glen has a very successful financial planning business in Australia and hosts Australia’s top podcast for millennials, called my millenial money.
Glen believes that if you follow your passion, focus on helping others, start your own business and automate everything that you can, then the money will come.
But it doesn’t come overnight. Glen is in his early thirties, but he started in business almost two decades ago, and by the age of 25 had more real life business experience than most people in their 40s. Glen didn’t come from money, and worked hard to get to where he is today.
When the money does come, the thing to do isn’t always extreme frugality and aggressive saving. You have to take care of future you and your fixed expenses, but once you’re covered there, you should have permission to spend the rest and enjoy your life.
Glen wants you to know that the pursuit of money alone won’t bring you happiness. Money gives you options but it should not be the goal.
I didn’t get to connect with Glen during my visit to Australia in July but we were able to meet up later in Orlando during FinCon 2018, where he shared his personal finance story.

Liz Enriquez wants you to grow and learn and ask questions about money.
By age 21, Liz had travelled to over 20 countries and paid for them out of pocket...
By age 22, she paid off her university tuition…
By age 24, she saved over $50,000 and bought a house...
By age 26, her net worth grew to 6 figures...
And this year, at 27, she quit her government job after making $10,000 in one month through her various income streams.
Liz worked hard, kept her costs down and saved a lot to accomplish all of this by 27.. No handouts. No help from her parents. No inheritance.
She realized while going through these financial milestones that there weren’t many resources available millennials like her. And the resources that did exist were scattered and difficult to understand for someone who isn’t a financial expert.
So Liz created ambitiousadulting.com to help Canadian Millennials understand personal finances so they can save more, earn more and reduce stress about money.
Liz joined me in the studio in Hamilton to tell her personal finance story.

At 22, Arian Beyzaei is Vice President of Operations at Enriched Academy and has investments of over $100,000.
At 16 he read Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and told his parents he wasn’t going to college or university.
They were not happy with his decision.
That year he saw Enriched Academy on Dragon’s Den and decided he wanted to join their mission to help Canadians learn, understand and control their money.
Though he was young, the founders of Enriched Academy were impressed by Arian’s passion for personal finance and his willingness to learn and let him join the company as an intern at 17.
He was hired on full time after 8 months and since then he has presented to tens of thousands of Canadians and has been the keynote speaker for hundreds of different corporations.
Arian joined me in the studio to tell us his personal finance story.
