Ross Perez is the Real Finance Guy. After graduating with a degree in economics from the University of Washington, he went straight to work at Tableau Software as employee number 93. Through the course of the next 8 years he worked his way up the ranks and managed to build a small nest egg through Incentive Stock Options (a subject that he literally wrote the book on). Since then he’s onto a new startup and has been aggressively saving and investing in real estate and the stock market in an attempt to retire by 50. Real Finance Guy is the story of his financial journey.
