Robert Brokamp

Staff Writer

As a former financial advisor and English teacher, it was inevitable that Robert Brokamp would one day write about the management of money. His musings on retirement, investments, budgeting, and whoopee cushions can be found on and in various other publications, including and Newsweek. He was a contributor to The Motley Fool's Money After 40 and Million Dollar Portfolio, the co-author of The Motley Fool Personal Finance Workbook, the author of The Motley Fool's Guide to Paying for School, and is the editor of the Motley Fool Rule Your Retirement newsletter service.

Robert, who is a Certified Financial Planner, wishes to one day definitively answer the question, "Why do we make bad decisions with our money when we know better?" He lives in a glorified tree house in Alexandria, Va., with his wife and four children, and is obsessed with Christmas music.
