Julia's passion for business and finance started at a young age. Setting up lemonade stands, mowing the neighbor’s lawn and having her own babysitting club. In high school, she had an amazing teacher that taught her about business and finance. After her first mock stock portfolio and hearing about stocks from her grandfather, she was hooked on figuring out how to make this into a career. It's all she ever wanted to do.

Working at a local bank and then taking the securities exam, at age 20 she became a financial advisor. What Julia has come to realize is that financial success isn't an isolated part of one's life. All parts are connected and success in one makes it easier to succeed in others. Now she helps others to figure out the matrix and become successful investors and retiree's. And her book Fit Money tells you how she did it and you can too.

We sat down with Nolan Watson, CEO of Sandstorm Gold Royalty (TSX:SSL, NYSE American:SAND) our sponsor to discuss the rapidly changing global financial conditions and why gold still matters. If you're not familiar with Sandstorm, it's a royalty streaming company started in 2008 and now has nearly 200 royalty streams. They've been busy expanding their business and buying in shares, a notable feat. Nolan is concerned about the future. He sees no let up in debt creation and a complete unwillingness by the world's political leaders to address it. While he's not sure how much longer this can go on, he is certain that at some point there's going to be a day of reckoning. Why else would China and Russia still be acquiring more metal reserves? This belief has played a big part in Sandstorm's successful strategy and its growth. Until major changes are made to the system, it's still a pretty safe bet.
