ICR243: Iona Bain, Spare Change
My guest on the show today is Iona Bain.
Iona is a young journalist and broadcaster who writes for the Glasgow Herald, the Daily Mail, Investazine, the Independent and the Sunday Times.
In 2011 she established Iona’s Young Money Blog, the first of its kind in the UK. Nominated as a rising industry star in 2014, she also writes a column the trade industry bible Financial Adviser.
She has appeared on BBC Scotland, the Radio 1 Surgery Show, Channel 4 News and the Max Keiser Show and co-hosts the Young Money Show on Share Radio station.
Her book Spare Change shows that anyone can have a more fulfilling approach to money regardless of personality, background or income.
This inspirational yet down-to-earth book helps readers to take control and get the most out of their finances from the practical advice on how to save and tips on how to make your money go further to dealing with socialising on a budget.
Iona helps readers to work out their own personal relationship with money then helps them to formulate an action plan tailored to their own personal needs.
It’s the perfect handbook for the compulsive spender budget-phobe or just anyone who wants to improve their financial savviness. Iona’s message is simple; it’s never too late to clean up your finances!
Spare Change is the culmination of Iona’s deep thinking and extensive experiences of common financial issues facing her generation. In this episode, we dive into some of the big money issues facing younger people today.
Here’s my conversation with Iona Bain, author of Spare Change, in episode 243 of Informed Choice Radio.
