Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

This book is witty and well written, and highlights all the tips in red boxes so all you minions out there won't miss a thing, even if you are still lugging around that "assistant" title (which we all know means instructions need to be laid out in basic 1,2,3 steps).
