A Money Coach in Canada

I subscribed for years to The National Post (yes me.  progressive me.  progressives like to be financially savvy too, you know!).

When I was a n00b to the world of high finance, I started this habit:  Every Saturday I would dive into the financial pages for a half-hour.  Over time  they evolved from gibberish to English.   Amazing, that!  I didn’t force myself to read anything that was too frustrating or jargon-filled.  Rather, I would find any headline which caught my eye, and give it a shot.   And now I’m an addict.

So give it a shot yourself.  Just to prove it’s not all serious, here’s a starter-article for you poker players out there.

About the Author

Imagine if Canadians were known for being all over their money. Engaged. Proactive. Getting out of debt. Savvy. Saving. Generous. Nancy wants to help. Nancy started her own journey with money over 15 years ago, and formed her company “Your Money by Design” in 2004 to help others along the same path. It’s not the usual financial advising/investment stuff. It’s about taking control of day-to-day finances –managing monthly cashflow effectively, spending appropriately, getting out of debt, saving. If you're ready to take control over your finances, pop by her business site, YourMoneybyDesign.com


  1. Honestly, I’ve tried, but as a Globe & Mail reader, I still feel like I need a translator Even the Financial Facelift is hard for me to get through. The worst part is, I own a home, have RRSPs and investments, and I’m still a dolt! Maybe I should try the Post instead.

  2. The trick for me was simply finding a headline about a company that interested me and reading that, and only that (unless another one really engaged me). Over time, I got to know about Westjet (back in the day, it bought me my condo! with Starbucks), Sunrype, Martha Stewart (one of my legendary mistakes).
