Gail Vaz-Oxlade is one of Canada’s most successful and respected financial writers and has authored several best-selling books, including Debt-Free Forever, Never Too Late, Money-Smart Kids, It’s Your Money and Money Rules. She currently doles out her no-nonsense approach to finance as host of the television shows Princess and Til Debt Do Us Part, and she is coming to campus! Join Gail Vaz-Oxlade on March 26 at the Sanderson Centre as she talks about every topic under the financial sun—from TFSAs to taxes, borrowing to breaking bad habits, relationships to RRSPs—Gail tells readers that many of the rules they have been following might actually be working against their best interests. Some of her advice is, as she says, common sense (Rule #17: Needs Must Come Before Wants), some of it is surprising (Rule #222: Don’t Borrow to Contribute to an RRSP), and some is even counterintuitive coming from Gail (Rule #261: Take Pleasure from Your Money). All of the rules are delivered in digestible pieces that each give the reader a clear sense of what works and what doesn’t. FREE tickets will be available for students at the U Desk starting on March 4. For more info, visit gailvazoxlade
