10 Quick Do's and Dont's I Learned from...Monkeys, Since moving abroad, I've turned "travel hacking" into my primary side hobby, that is, paying as little as possible in cash for flights and hotels throughout the world. Eighteen months later, I'm sitting on 500,000 airline points with only two credit cards in my pocket, a credit score... 1 year 2 weeks
São Paulo meetup?Bom dia all, Curious if there are enough monkeys in Sampa to warrant a happy hour meet-up. If we can get a decent number, I'll organize something in Jardins or Vila Madalena. 1 year 6 months

Indochino prices go up - better alternatives?So after holding off on purchasing a new suit for three weeks, Indochino raised prices across the board (about $75 or so) for their suits.

Chicago networking lunch?Chicago guys, Any interest in starting a monthly lunch group during the week? I figure we all work pretty nearby and would benefit from getting to know other As and As around town. PM me or post below and we'll see if we can get something together. 3 years 4 months
Free Series 79 study materialsMonkeys, I have the full set of STC Interactive Series 79 study materials that I will give away for free if anyone has any interest.

A message for all the 3.0 GPA, non-targets...If you were only to read this blog, you'd think the non-targets, low GPA applicants could never break into IB, much less obtain gainful employment at all. Well I'm here to tell not every kid in high finance is a 4.0 Ivy leaguer. I graduated from a top 20 but non-target school with a 3.0 GPA. I didn... 4 years 11 months
