I’m Barry Choi, a Toronto-based personal finance and travel expert who frequently makes media appearances. My blog Money We Have is one of Canada’s most trusted sources when it comes to money and travel.
When I first started investing I had no clue what I was doing, and I invested in whatever mutual funds my financial advisor recommended. Of course I was never told that these mutual funds had high management fees and deferred sales charges.
Disappointed with the deception, I made the best decision ever and fired him! I realized I was better off educating myself in personal finance because no one will care more about my money than me.
I combine my knowledge of finance with my passion for travel and encourage people to see the world. Whether it’s adventure travel, a relaxing all-inclusive resort, or backpacking through Europe; I share practical tips everyone should know when travelling, regardless of your budget.
In case you’re curious during the day I work at a TV Newsroom in Toronto work behind the scenes. If you’re looking for an expert quote on personal finance or travel just send me an e-mail or contact me on Twitter: @barrychoi
