Credit cards, personal finance, investing

Bob Haegele is a personal finance writer who specializes in topics such as investing and credit cards. He worked as an IT analyst for nine years, but he pursued jobs in that field for one big reason: student loans. After attending a private university, he had a whole lot of them. But thanks to a combination of high earnings and living rent-free at home after college, he managed to become debt-free just shy of his thirtieth birthday. He always loved writing and, free of debt, he decided to bring things full circle and help others with their finances, too.
