Introducing Pete Matthew from Meaningful Money
The Meaningful money legend Pete Matthew is my guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots podcast interview.
He is a man who quite frankly I should have invited onto the show years ago.
Meaningful Money has been on my radar for awhile.
However for some reason or not has not been given the opportunity to join up their dots.
Pete Matthew is a man who has blended so many vitally important skills being used in the online world today into a rocking and rolling business.
He is a Financial Planner, Podcaster, Video Blogger, Social Media Trainer. Managing Director of Jacksons Wealth Management.
Best of all can teach us how to take control of our cash in ways that simply are life changing.
As he says “I am a Certified Financial Planner and Chartered Financial Planner providing fee-based holistic financial planning advice in Penzance, West Cornwall.
I am also an award-winning podcaster and video blogger.
My passion is to spread the word that anyone can take control of their personal finances.

How Meaningful Money Was Born
I am fulfilling this passion via my financial education website and podcast, Meaningful Money.
Through video, podcasting and social media I am reaching thousands of people every week with my simple financial planning message.
I set out to provide simple, accessible financial planning information to the masses, and decided that video might be a good way to do this, and through trial and error, built a site full of basic instructional video.
Through my work with this site, I was awarded IFALife’s Social Media Financial Adviser of the Year award 2010.
I also won the Professional Adviser Financial Education award in both 2011 and 2012.
I also received the Scottish Widows award for Industry Innovation in 2014, and was named UK Podcast of the Year in 2015.
This is great stuff, and will of course make a great episode.
Behind The Scenes
So what made him continue through the trial and error stages of video content creation, when most people would have said “I’ll just do what I am already doing…it’s easier?”
And where do people go wrong with their money issues?
Not looking after the money they already have, or being unaware of what is available to them out there in the big wide world?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only,Mr Meaningful Money, Mr Pete Matthew.
