Welcome to TheFrugalBaller! TheFrugalBaller is a personal finance site focused on smart money decisions that will help you reach financial independence as quickly as possible. I will be writing about passive income strategies, money saving tactics, and investment opportunities. I cannot guarantee that every post will work out perfectly for you, but I can guarantee that every post will get you thinking about different ways of making or saving money. I’ve been following passive investment bloggers, podcasts and vloggers for a long time, but this is the first time I’m going to give it a try and document the results along the way. Perhaps unlike other personal finance websites, while financial independence is the goal, I understand that life needs to be lived and some situations call for splurges… money conscious splurges (hence the “Ballers” part). So, I will also try my best to find you ways to live life and splurge like a FrugalBaller.
A little bit about this FrugalBaller. I’ve spent most of my career in the financial services and investments industry. Most recently, I worked at a venture capital firm in San Francisco where I invested in early stage technology startups. Prior to that, I spent 5 years in investment banking covering medical technology and diagnostics companies. I have an MBA from the Wharton School and a BS from New York University.
