@MsGillyJ on Earnings Season podcast - Episode 21

This week on Earnings Season @HDanhai & @RTRowe talk with Mrs. Gillian Jackson, the JA Finance Thread Queen more commonly known on Twitter as @MsGillyJ.
She covers launching her new website FinancialCentsibility.com and delves into home buying tips for everyone (including those of us building up to buying that home). She touches on shopping around for a good mortgage, tips for that entire process, the rise of credit reporting and what it means for you. @RTRowe manages to bawl about Interest Rates and tries to drop his old SLB Baggage and @HDanhai gets a better look at what entering the housing market these days really takes for a millennial. Gillian also teaches us about stratas, the entire house buying journey, mortgage management (incl. early payoff tips) and a whole lot more.

@MsGillyJ on CVM Television discussing Financial Literacy

It is a policy priority for the nation, a form of education that could potentially improve the financial management of all Jamaican’s. The issue of financial literacy has grown increasingly important in the current economic environment, but is enough being done to educate the public on the nuances of money management? Finance Twitter has emerged as an important hub in the promotion of financial literacy from buying a car to investing in stocks and two of its most prominent members join us tonight to discuss the topic. Joining us are Financial Analyst Marc Gayle and Finance Blogger Gillian Jackson.
