Melissa Houston / Jessica Moorhouse

“It’s really exciting to try new things and grow this business, so I can spread the word and educate more people throughout Canada.”

—  Jessica Moorhouse

Millennial money expert, blogger, podcaster, and speaker Jessica Moorhouse is a well-known name in Canadian finance, having been featured in major publications including The Huffington Post, The Globe & Mail, Market Watch, and more.  

Jessica serves everyone, but the biggest part of her audience is women in the 20s to 40s. Her Millennial Money Meetup organization teaches financial literacy to young people and her More Money podcast helps listeners save more, earn more, and do more with their money!

Jessica started out without a business plan or business background, beginning with content creation via her blog, podcast, and YouTube channel. Most of her income originally came from brand partnerships — she was an influencer before it was even a thing!

When rumours of an upcoming recession started swirling around, Jessica wanted to avoid relying on advertising dollars and focused on diversifying her offerings in order to recession-proof her business.

Tune in for a great conversation about expanding your offers, modern investing, and how to get past the overwhelm of taking control of your finances.

  •  Why financial advisors at your bank aren’t as knowledgeable as you think
  •  How Jessica diversified her offerings to become recession- (and pandemic-) proof
  • Whether digital finance platforms live up to the hype
