Renee Sylvestre-Williams is a finance and business reporter who got interested in the topic of money when she bought her home and realized she no longer had disposable income. (She was debt free then and has equity now and isn't sure the tradeoff was worth it.) In her more than 10 years of journalism she has covered what it's like to rebuild a heart, women in mining, B corps and why women need to invest in women entrepreneurs. Her work has been published in the Globe and Mail, Flare, Canadian Living, Canadian Business, the Toronto Star and Forbes. She also publishes a biweekly newsletter, The Budgette, where she provides financial education for single earners.
