Robin Taub | The Wisest Investment
Robin Taub returns to talk about her latest book, The Wisest Investment. We chat about the common concerns parents bring up with Robin with respect to money and the financial decision making skills they want to empower their children with. We then dive into what parents can expect to learn from this quick, strategy-filled guide that includes chapters and tactics for children of all ages. We strongly support [Robin’s] perspective on financial education and believe the framework she discusses here and shares in her book is well worth any parent’s time. In our conversation, we cover all the important bases; financial values, summer jobs, investment apps, human capital, and everything in between.

We have Robin Taub, a chartered professional accountant and author of The Wisest Investment, join us to take us through some of the most popular family finance apps in Canada.
-Money Made Simple with Bruce Sellery
This is one “talk” we can’t avoid…The Money Talk! Things have changed so much about the way we interact with money (who even carries cash anymore!?).
We are talking about all things money so your kids can have a healthy understanding of what it is, and how to use it wisely.
My guest Robin Taub CPA, CA, who is an expert on all things money, is breaking it down for us in the most non-boring way! We talk about what “financial literacy” is (the knowledge skills and confidence to make financial decisions at every stage of life) and how it’s the key to economic growth and prosperity and allows you to make sound financial decisions and grow your money, not be caught in too much debt.

How do you leverage an allowance system to communicate family values to a young child?
As my sister, Kelly Mindell, is learning on her family’s money-smart journey, the key is patience. Lots and lots of patience! The tables are turned during this special episode of The Art of Allowance Podcast, as Kelly peppers me with questions regarding her own program. But so this installment doesn’t turn into a family reunion (or, more likely, digress to the level of a lively Lanza board game night), my former guest and fellow money-smart movement co-conspirator Robin Taub joins in as co-host.
-John Lanza, The Art of Allowance Podcast
Kids who understand from an early age that money is a tool, and then learn how to effectively use that tool, can expect to enjoy more comfortable financial futures — which means less stress, less anxiety, less substance abuse, and overall better health for the rest of their lives. Yet parents are often reluctant to teach money management skills to their kids, often because they themselves don’t feel well equipped with financial skills.
-Cloudy with a Risk of Children Podcast
“I’m a parent of four kids — two are now young adults and two are now teens. Online apps were not an option for my oldest kids, but I now wonder if we should be looking at apps to help the younger ones develop healthy spending/saving habits. What might be the benefits or drawbacks to using such apps?” — A Money123 reader

The vast majority of us aren’t giving up on cash anytime soon. That’s according to a recent Bank of Canada staff discussion paper which found close to 80 per cent of Canadians have no plans to go cashless in the next five years. And in fact, it’s finding new life as a budgeting and savings tool. CBC’s Jason Osler finds out why, and chats with Robin Taub about the longevity of cash.

Growing up, I always found money to be something that was hard to get, that it goes as fast as it comes. Even when we started to make more money as the years went on, I still had that lingering belief of ‘what if it’s not enough.’

Robin is a great interview guest. Debt Free in 30 is a “long form” podcast, “live to tape” with no edits, so everything the guest says goes to air; Robin is a great guest in this format. She can succinctly present her main point (so she’d be great on short form radio or TV interviews), but then she can effortlessly expand on the point to give greater depth and nuance. I asked many pointed questions, challenging her conclusions, and she is great speaking “off the cuff” with well-reasoned, easy-to-follow perspectives. She speaks free of jargon, so is easily understood by a wide range of listeners. Always a great interview!
—DOUG HOYES, Host, Debt Free in 30 Podcast, Partner, HOYES MICHALOS
As an interview guest, Robin is witty, knowledgeable and authentic as she shares her gems of wisdom about making our next generation financially savvy.
