Many people struggle to deal with financial planning and debt, leading to high levels of stress and anxiety. Struggling with your finances can affect all parts of your life, and it can be hard to reach your life goals when you are dealing with such a burden.  If financial planning or debt is affecting you, then you are not alone. Canadians have more debt than ever before, and half of all Canadians couldn’t meet their financial obligations if their paycheck were delayed by even one week.


November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada. On today’s episode, I discuss how The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada(FCAC) is raising awareness and educating people so that they can increase their financial acumen. I share my thoughts on the fundamental life skill that you need and how creating an effective financial plan can help you get out of debt. I also reveal how you can begin to invest in your financial well-being, make a budget, and start a savings plan.


“When you understand what’s important to do, how you are doing it, and how to move ahead - you can tackle anything.” - Tracey Bissett
