“This book empowers you to take control of your financial future. Highly recommend.”  Brendan Lee Young, Co-Founder, 


Set a plan for financial success by mastering one simple formula.

You can spend your entire life chasing money, spending it, and wishing you had more of it. But it doesn’t have to keep being that way. In fact, there’s a very simple formula for driving real wealth and financial security based on what you earn, what you spend, and what you invest.

In Simple Money, Greg Tomkins, CFA, shows you how to apply this formula to your life to take charge of your personal finances—whether you’re dealing with debt, just entering your earning years, or planning for retirement. With straightforward, clear language, Tomkins walks you through the process of taking stock of your current situation, accepting how your behaviour impacts your finances, and understanding exactly how to earn more, spend less, and invest properly.


Illustrated with candid stories of his own spending failures and triumphs, illuminating case studies of financial portfolios, and powerful exercises, Tomkins delivers all the information you need to understand debt and borrowing, saving and investing—and how to prevent missteps in your financial journey. You’ll discover why all debt isn’t bad, why buying a home isn’t necessarily a ticket to success, and why a financial advisor isn’t for everyone. You’ll also learn to make sense of all those financial acronyms—from RRSPs and TFSAs to EFTs and REITs—and gain an understanding of stock market basics to determine the investment portfolio that’s right for you.


Along the way, you’ll discover a deeper understanding of yourself, your goals, and your aspirations—and set a path to achieving them. While being born rich, having friends in high places, and getting lucky can certainly propel you forward in life, the reality is you can’t rely on any of those. What you can control is your behaviour, your decision-making, and your desire to improve your financial situation. Let’s get started.
