Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 16 “Make A New Plan, Stan”

It was over 40 years ago that Paul Simon urged “Stan” to “Make a new plan” in his song “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”. Did Stan ever make a new plan? I have no idea, but I do know this – when it comes to his personal finances – it’s unlikely that Stan ever had a plan in the first place. I can hear you, “yeah, yeah, yeah…. plan, plan, plan… is it really that important?” I think it is. In this episode we’re going to talk simple basics about a financial plan and included in the message is […]

Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 15 “Expanding Your Horizons”

Have you ever stared off into the distance and wondered how far away the horizon is? No, seriously – how far away is the horizon? If you knew, do you think you might want to expand it? Can you make your horizon bigger?Larger? Further away? Does it have anything to do with investing? What about a personal finance horizon? Is there a personal development horizon?

Sticky is Good!

“Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.”—Orison Swett Marden I hadn’t thought about this particular quote in a long time and might not have at all had it not been for a unique set of circumstances two weeks ago. I was celebrating my birthday in a pub in Oakville, Ontario with my wife and after dinner, we decided to share a “pudding”—the Brit word for dessert. Fortunately “sticky toffee pudding” was on the menu. I asked her what she […]
