Why Hello There!

I’m Jessica and I’m a millennial money expert, speaker, Accredited Financial Counsellor Canada®, award-winning blogger, host of the Mo’ Money Podcast and founder of the Millennial Money Meetup.

As you may have guessed, my main passion is personal finance and living a balanced lifestyle. Ever since I discovered the transformative powers of financial literacy, my mission has been to teach others how to take control of their lives by taking control of their money.

From an early age I’ve always been very conscious of my relationship with money. Mainly because I never had a lot of it. I never got an allowance, I started working at the age of 15 and I paid my way through university without any financial assistance (save for a $5,000 student loan in my last year of school).

Once I finished my degree and got my first real job, I realized that I needed to be more than just frugal to afford the lifestyle I’ve always dreamed of. I needed to budget strategically, figure out how best to invest my money, and develop more than just one stream of income.

To get the full scoop about my upbringing and why I am the way I am, listen to my podcast episode about my personal finance journey.

When I started my blog almost 8 years ago, I just wanted it to be a way for me to track my personal finance journey and keep myself accountable. But over the years, it’s become so much more than that.

Now, my main focus as a go-to millennial money expert is to help you get the same support and guidance I was desperate for when I first started out. I want to help you get on track so you can afford the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of too. And a great way to start is by enrolling in one of my courses!

Absolutely fantastic course!

This an absolutely fantastic course! If I may make one recommendation, incorporating more visuals in the video presentations and graphs without making it "flashy" would go a long way. I'm a VERY visual learner and I wouldn't have gotten through th...

This an absolutely fantastic course! If I may make one recommendation, incorporating more visuals in the video presentations and graphs without making it "flashy" would go a long way. I'm a VERY visual learner and I wouldn't have gotten through the course if you didn't have the video presentations, but I found they even had a lot of text in them. That's about the only thing that stuck out to me the most.

Jessica's course dusts off what we thought we knew about investing and gives a deeper understanding of many of the terms that are thrown around when talk around the water cooler turns to investing and retirement savings. I feel more confident now to take some action around my current investments and make more educated decisions going forward. Highly recommended!

I signed up for this course to get a clearer picture of financial stuff and I definitely got that. I am a 50-year-old nurse who has let my husband do the bulk of the financial planning over the course of my life. He has been great, but I felt like it was time I learned about it all myself. This course gave me a great overall understanding of the terminology used and the concepts in the financial world. I feel much more confident! I even felt brave enough to start investing with a robo-advisor. Jessica has a great way of teaching things. She is clear and concise and easy to understand. I highly recommend doing it as a way to expand or enhance your financial literacy. Thank you Jessica!

Highly recommended (for Americans too)

Bridgett Bisceglia

Although this course is designed for Canadians, I am American and able to relate to almost all of it! For anyone who is new with investing, this course breaks it down to make your next financial step easier.
