Life is crazy sometimes. Back in 2009, when I was struggling to find a full-time job after university thanks to the Great Recession, I got an on-call job as a teleprompter operator for Global News thanks to my dad putting a good word in for me (he’d worked there for over 20 years).
It was honestly a god send because it meant I could earn a little money, pay off my student loan and start saving to eventually move out of my parent’s basement. Anywho, while I worked there (and I ended up keeping that job as a side hustle for 3 years) I would sometimes see the ladies from Smart Cookies appear on the news and share their personal finance wisdom. Cut to 2020, as we enter possibly another recession, I’ve got Smart Cookies co-founder Katie Dunsworth-Reiach on my podcast to talk about how to navigate your money during these uncertain times. And since her personal finance journey was majorly impacted from the last recession too, she has some amazing advice and food for thought in this episode.
Just remember, we’ve gone through many recessions in history before, and there will be many more in the future. It’s how you react and what actions you ultimately take during those hard times that will define your path.
