Sam Dogen is the mastermind behind, one of the largest independently-run personal finance sites with roughly one million organic visitors a month. He launched Financial Samurai in 2009 when the world was falling apart and his net worth was taking a beating. His inspiration was to help himself and others make sense of the chaos. As a finance veteran since 1999, Dogen writes from firsthand experience to provide the most helpful insights possible. He spent 13 years working at Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse, holds a BA in Economics from The College of William & Mary, and an MBA from UC Berkeley. In 2012, he left his day job in finance at age 34 to be permanently free and pursue being a writer. He has lived in seven countries and has traveled to over 60 countries so far. Dogen’s writing delves deeper into investing, real estate, retirement planning, career strategies, and more, so we can all achieve financial independence sooner, rather than later. Financial Samurai is also proud to be one of the pioneers of the modern-day FIRE movement. Since the financial crisis, more than 80 million visitors have stopped by to learn, share, and grow. In addition, Dogen’s work has been highlighted in major publications such as CNBC, MarketWatch, Forbes, The Consumerist, The Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times, and many more. Dogen is also known for The Financial Samurai Podcast and the one-of-a-kind eBook, How To Engineer Your Layoff, which teaches employees how to negotiate a severance package and be free. When not writing or podcasting, Sam can often be found on the playground taking care of his two young children or on the softball field or tennis court.
