We are two brothers and we started Penny Bros as a way to keep track of our debt. Eventually, it wound up turning into a full-time site that we use to share tips on investing, money hacks we discover, review financial software, and offer advice on how we both paid off over $135,000 in debt in two years.
Where did the majority of our debt come from? Two words, student loans. We both attended a 4-year private University where tuition cost upwards of $40,000 per year. While we attended school, we both worked in the IT department. It was there that we learned lifelong practical skills that were priceless. Much more than anything we learned in actual classes. And looking back, we wouldn’t trade those skills for anything.
We are also both still working towards our own financial independence and enjoy sharing the lessons we learn along the way.
