I was recently interviewed by Preet Banerjee for his Mostly Money Mostly Canadian podcast. In lieu of writing a blog post today, I am linking to the podcast here, so you can listen to me for 25 minutes waxing eloquently on topics such as family dynamics, estate planning, the family cottage, personal use property such as art and collectibles and even my bucket list. Here is the link.
I think the interview is pretty good (if I do say so myself) and if Preet had recorded the first run instead of forgetting to push the start button on his recording device, it would have been even better :)
All joking aside, Preet is one smart guy, a terrific speaker and writer and a sort of a Dos Equis most interesting man in the world type of guy. He even started out trying to be a Race Car driver and somehow ended up in the financial service industry. Talk about a downturn in your career.
If you follow personal finance, you will know Preet from his TV appearances on the CBC's National, as a Bottom Line Panelist and/or The Lang and O'Leary Exchange, his writing for The Globe and Mail and Money Sense Magazine or as the host of the TV Show Million Dollar Neighborhood (well actually not sure if anyone watched it, so maybe you don't know him from there). Preet's most recent book Stop Over-thinking Your Money! The Five Simple Rules of Financial Success was a Canadian best-seller.
Finally, you may wish to check out and subscribe to his U-tube Channel, Money School which is informative and often amusing.
Wow, I am exhausted just writing about all the things Preet does, to be young again. Anyways, enjoy the podcast and check out some of Preet's work.
