Bridget Eastgaard (formerly Casey), from the personal finance blog Money After Graduation, and I talk about graduating from post-secondary twice, becoming a dragon (à la Dragons Den) and investing in the stock market like a total boss.
Long episode description:
Not to say that all the episodes I’ve done up to this point aren’t my favourite, but I’ve got to say that I really loved interviewing Bridget from Money After Graduation. I may add a dash of sass to the personal finance world, but she adds a few cups at least!
What I love about Bridget’s personality and her writing style is that she’s real, she’s super smart and she’s downright hilarious. I mean, not many people can make the topics of debt, going back to school and investing in the stock market seem entertaining and fun.
In this episode, I start with asking about how Bridget’s childhood influenced her relationship with money, and from there we talk about how she went to university, got into debt, went back to university and essentially became a dragon from Dragon’s Den and a hard-core investor. I just have a feeling that in like 5 years she’s going to be an actual dragon on Dragon’s Den and this episode will be my claim to fame. You go Bridget! I’m counting on you!
I mentioned a few resources and blog posts during the show, so here they are below. And remember, if you’d like to leave me a review on iTunes or Stitcher, I’ll give you a special shout out on a future episode!
Also, as a continuation on the theme of investing, next week’s episode will featureBarry Choi from Money We Have (who I mention to Bridget on this episode). We’ll be talking about DIY investing and index funds, so make sure you tune in for that!
