Hello, strange people who still subscribe to my blog and/or email list. I am pleased to let you know that I am not dead and that there is some new content available on the podcast.
My friend Melissa Leong (who doesn’t really need an introduction but I’ll give one below anyway) has written a new book on personal finance that is different than the usual fare. It’s titled Happy Go Money, and it looks at the intersection of money and happiness. I had an absolute blast chatting with her on the podcast. As I was reviewing the audio before publishing the podcast I was laughing as hard as I did during the interview itself.

About Melissa Leong
Melissa is a personal finance writer, keynote speaker, on-air personality and bestselling author. She appears on CTV’s The Social as its resident money expert and was a staff reporter at the Financial Post.
She also has set the new high bar for guests on the podcast because not only did she bring a bottle of scotch for me (as did previous guest, Scott Terrio), she also had a pair of glass tumblers custom engraved with the show’s name!
Buy the book
If you are interested in buying Melissa’s book, it’s official release date is January 8th, 2019, and you can order it here (and I think people are already having their orders shipped so you might get it earlier than you think). That link is an Amazon affiliate link, fyi.
One last note…
If you are a financial advisor, I’ve been working on a new venture that may be of interest to you. I’m launching a hybrid-advisor platform in the coming months which is designed for financial advisors who believe that real advice is about planning, not products. The company is called Money Gaps, and if you are looking for early access to a beta version (launching towards the end of Q1), you can sign up here. Again, to re-iterate: this is for financial advisors only. Instead of building a robo-advisor for digital investment execution as a B2C play and then pivoting to B2B, I’m building a planning-based platform on a B2B strategy first. The end goal is to make financial planning more accessible to people who don’t already have millions of dollars. I hope you’ll check it out.
