10 places to learn about personal finance

I was lucky to have a financially savvy father. He’s a business man and had the patience to sit down and guide me through basic investing and savings. Since not everyone has a financially savvy father, let me offer some resources and guidance that might help.

Understanding personal finances can be complicated, but when armed with proper information, it can be manageable.
I am not a financial adviser, and I am not certified to give financial advice but I can let you know what I use to learn. 

Here are some of the resources for my ‘research’.

  1. MoneySense
  2. Globe and Mail
  3. Business Insider
  4. Canadian Consumer Agencies
  5. Ministry of Finance
  6. CMHC
  7. The Wealthy Barber
  8. Build Wealth Canada Podcast
  9. Fire Drill Podcast
  10. The Financial Diet 

I spend about 2-3 hours a week learning about personal finance. To me, this time is an important investment in my future and I am always looking for more ways to learn. Whether you are just starting to take control of your finances, or you’re an experienced financial adviser, I think we can all agree the knowledge is power.
