As we wrap up Financial Literacy Month here in Canada, we decided to have a little fun with local athletes. We made the trip down to FirstOntario Centre to have a financial literacy chat with a few of the Hamilton Bulldogs. Life as an AHL player comes with some of the same financial challenges that young adults face on a day to day basis. Here’s an inside look from three of the Hamilton Bulldogs – Mike Condon, Mac Bennett and Darren Dietz.

In case you missed it, last November our blog was featured on CHCH Morning Live in Hamilton, Ontario. I made the appearance alongside one of my bosses at FirstOntario Credit Union, Dave Schurman. Since Dave appears on the show’s Finance Friday segment every week to promote financial literacy, we took this opportunity to officially launch the blog and promote our resources to guide young adults through the financial tough stuff.

The show’s host, Annette Hamm, even went the extra mile to endorse Money On Trees during the interview. She called it, “The personal finance blog created by a young professional for the young professional” because we discuss money management issues not taught in schools.
