Hi kids, do you like retirement?
I am Carlos SlimShady, the writer behind The Brokest MBA in America. If you like living frugally so you can do things like lose money on cryptocurrency and buy more VIX, or you hope to achieve FIRE through privatization of a state owned utility, then this is the blog for you.
I took on a ton of debt to get my MBA. Afterwards I became an expat management consultant, and now write about my efforts to pay it all off. I cover saving strategies, investing, and of course side hustles. Applied to be a dating app message ghostwriter? Check. Purchased overstock electronics for resale? Double check. Real estate note investor where I acquired a home with a basketball sized wasp nest? Yes all great ideas, time to write about them.
I have followed the FIRE community for about 2.5 years and look forward to interacting with you all.
