November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada, and there is no better time to talk about financial fitness and why it is so important to be financially fit all year round. It is increasingly crucial that Canadians have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make informed decisions about their finances as the financial marketplace grows increasingly complex.

In this episode, I'm breaking down what it means to be financially fit and diving into where Canadians see themselves in terms of financial ambitions as a result of the pandemic. Listen in as I discuss high-interest rate credit products, including why you should avoid them and what you can turn to instead if you find yourself in need of some quick cash.
