Questions Asked: 

1:57 You talk about the fact that in writing this book you pivoted from making Canadians comfortable with their money to a new mission, for women to claim their wealth.

2:20 In the first chapter, you talk about somebody called Mac.  Who is kind of clued out.  She spends a lot of money but doesn’t know where it’s going. She doesn’t seem to want to learn and eventually ends up with financial problems and ends up taking out a PayDay Loan.  Is this where we should start the conversation? Financial literacy.

8:15 You talk about your mother. You were very close to her. She was a role model for you.  You say that she always had flowers even though money was stretched. She felt that she had a few small pleasures to keep going.

10:30 What made you decide to focus on women claiming their wealth?

11:53 Another chapter that I really liked, she lived with her girlfriend who wasn’t working and when they broke up, the girlfriend sued her for ownership of the car and half the condo. Common-law agreements are important.
