Hi! I’m Jacob.

Jacob Johnson secondary

I’m TheFinancialGinger, Jacob, and I’m all about Financial Literacy, Financial Education, and making sure that we associate our behaviors with our desires. I firmly believe anyone can live an abundant life through managing their resources and actively choosing to do what they want MOST with their money, time, and brain power.

Making your finances align with what you really want to be doing in life is what I’m primarily focused on. I talk about college funding, student loan repayment, making a spending plan, identifying your values, paying off credit cards, how to get started in investing after you score that first job after school and other real life important finance topics in regular articles and podcasts.
Join me on facebook, @me on Twitter or find me sharing quotes and silly money memes Instagram.

TheFinancialGinger is a community where we can share our feelings and goals, define our goals and vision around money, then kick butt and take control of our finances and lives to make sure your time and money are spent on what you value most.


“Somewhere, as you read, the secret to which I refer will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, if you are ready for it! When it appears, you will recognize it. Whether you receive the sign in the first or the last chapter, stop for a moment when it presents itself, and turn down a glass, for that occasion will mark the most important turning-point of your life. ” – Napoleon Hill
