Who is Rob Berger?

Rob Berger Headshot DoughRollerIn this episode, we’ll get to hear from Rob Berger.

Rob Berger is the founder of the personal finance website Dough Roller and one of my favorite podcasts under the same name. He’s been rolling dough across the interwebs just a bit longer than I have…a little over 10 years now. It’s been great to read about and listen to Rob’s journey, as he’s just a few years older than me and always tackling the next big financial topic for me.

Rob is a lawyer, excellent chess player, and recent empty-nester.

In this episode, you’ll hear Rob share what he does that’s led to financial success, his process for paying off a lot of debt, financial goals, how he invests, and much more.

So let’s dig in. Let’s meet today’s Master of Money…
