“Moolala has something for everyone. By turns funny, smart, and wise, it’s a must-read for anyone who wants to take control of their financial future.
And who doesn’t want that.”

Moolala began because of a simple question
I had been friends with Andrea since our undergrad days. She was one of the smartest and most driven people in our class, so her question really surprised me.
“Bruce, I need your help. I’ve got a business degree and a big corporate job, but I just can’t seem to get on top of my money. Where do I start?”
She was clearly a smart person, but she knew that she was doing some dumb things with her money. The more I talked to people I knew, the more I heard the same ‘smart person/dumb things’ refrain. That got me thinking.
What was missing for Andrea was not another financial product or investing strategy. She needed to do some basic stuff – come up with goals, develop a plan for how to fund them, and then actually go out and make it all happen. But she wasn’t being served by what was already out there.
I thought that perhaps there was an opportunity to bring a new perspective to personal finance education – one that focused on cultivating insight, instead of just adding more knowledge onto the pile.
The genesis of Moolala
There were already tons of personal finance approaches/gurus/books out there. But I thought I could offer something different – an approach that combined my knowledge of personal finance with my experience as a coach and trainer.
I started with small workshops, testing the exercises with participants and refining the content along the way. This eventually became “The Moolala Method”, a 5 step process to getting a handle on your money so you can live the life you want.
Moolala expands its reach
The reaction from participants was so strong that I decided to take it to the next step and write a book about it. A publisher jumped on board, the writing process began, and my first book, “Moolala: Why smart people do dumb things with their money (and what you can do about it)”, became a Globe and Mail Bestseller. Soon after I went out on the road speaking to corporations and associations who had an interest in improving the financial well-being of their people. My second book, “The Moolala Guide to Rockin’ Your RRSP” is now in stores.

Attention Book Clubs!
I know, I know. You usually read fiction. But how about changing it up a bit and bringing some Moolala into your book club? It is a great way to break the taboo around money by talking about it with people you trust. Bruce Sellery provides his view on the benefits of Moolala and book clubs in this short video.
