Huge success! Money After Graduation hosted Canadian personal finance guru Gail Vaz Oxlade at the University of Alberta (my alma mater!) last night. I nearly threw up from nervousness, but thankfully held it together. At this point, I still can’t tell if her biggest compliment was naming my website a “valuable resource” or calling me a skinny b@#$%.
I want to thank Mikhaila from Fistful o’ Dollars for being my right-hand-man in the planning and execution of this great show. She was an extraordinarily good speller and dutifully wrote each and every guest’s name on a post-it then stuck it to each book for Gail to sign. It was an assembly-line of Personal Finance magic.
I managed to sneak Jim Yih from Retire Happy in at the last minute, but only because he’s a friend. I felt so cool rubbing shoulders with Canada’s Personal Finance bests!
I want to thank my lovely volunteer team (aka. best friends + one of my sisters) for all their help.
Also a big thanks to all my friends, family, and coworkers that attended. I appreciate your love and support! To the Edmonton and UofA community, thanks for being fans of Gail! She had a great time in Edmonton so hopefully she stops by to see us again!
