Jill Kerby has been a successful personal finance journalist for over 25 years. She has worked for The Irish Times, The Sunday Times, Business and Finance magazine and has been a regular commentator on radio and television. She edited Irish Pensions magazine for the IAPF for 10 years and her popular MoneyTimes column appears weekly in a dozen regional newspapers. She is an outspoken consumer advocate and educator, so I was delighted that she agreed to chat to me about life, money and happiness or even the “absence of unhappiness” as she likes to term it.
