The Personal Finance Show

The Personal Finance Show is a place for people to tell their personal finance stories. Everyone has a personal finance story.

Bettina Schneider wants you to understand the impact your values, histories and life experiences have on your financial decision-making processes.

Bettina has a PhD in Native American Studies and is currently Associate Professor and Associate Vice President Academic at First Nations University of Canada.

Bettina spends a lot of her time contemplating the following questions:

How can we increase Indigenous people's access to culturally relevant financial education resources?

How can we reframe the way we talk about financial literacy and personal finance in order to make it more accessible to a wider audience?

Bettina believes that financial literacy resources do not always speak to the varied values and experiences of their audience and would like to see more of those resources explore how people's "money culture" impacts the way they relate to money.

Bettina joined me from Regina, Saskatchewan to share her personal finance story

Joe Saul-Sehy wants you to learn about money, but he doesn’t want you to think you’re learning anything.

Joe is the creator and co-host of The Stacking Benjamins Show, one of the top personal finance podcasts in North America. Joe also co-hosts a new podcast called Money in the Morning.

The running joke on Stacking Benjamins is that you won’t learn anything about money by listening to the show, and if you do learn something, you should keep it to yourself.

Joe figured out a way to make personal finance fun and entertaining, and somehow got over 130,000 people to subscribe to the Stacking Benjamins podcast along the way.

But Joe’s history with money is not all sunshine and roses. He’s made his share of money mistakes over the years and that’s what makes him so effective as a host of a personal finance podcast.

I’m very happy to have Joe on the show and I’m flattered that he has invited me to be on the infamous Stacking Benjamins roundtable coming up on a Friday sometime in the next few months.

Joe joined me from Detroit, Michigan to share his personal finance story.

Darryl Brown wants you to stop complaining about bad financial advice and do something about it.

If you walk into a bank, give them money, don’t ask questions and do zero research on investing, then you’ve pretty much given up your right to complain if you’re not happy with the results.

Instead of complaining about things, let’s be proactive. This is your money. It’s important. You work hard for it. So why not spend a bit of time on it.

Yes, I’ve said this a lot. I know it’s hard to do the work yourself. It takes time and a personal interest in investing. So it might make more sense for you to pay someone a fee to help you figure it all out.

And this is where a lot of people get confused. They think that walking into a bank or going to a company that sells financial products is the best way to invest their money in a way that achieves their financial goals. They don’t charge upfront fees so that sounds great to most people.

But as I’ve said many times, if a financial services company doesn’t have the product that is best for your goals, they are not going to tell you to go somewhere else. They are never going to make money if they send business away.

If you walk into a Mazda dealer and you start talking about how much Ford means to you and you love Ford products and it becomes really obvious to them that you are going to have a significantly better life if you buy a Ford, they will NEVER say, “I don’t think a Mazda is the right car for you.” As a salesperson, that is possibly the worst thing you can do for your career. They will instead try their best to change your mind and fit your desires into their available range of products.

Darryl started his company You & Yours Financial so that he could provide truly unbiased advice. He is not at all interested in forcing you into a box so that you fit the financial product he sells. He doesn’t sell financial products at all. A quick glance at Darryl’s Twitter feed and you can see that he has no patience for the financial BS that’s out there.

Darryl is only interested in providing you with a completely unbiased opinion and an investment solution that is truly right for you.

Darryl joined me in the studio in Hamilton to share his personal finance story.
