In 2010, Brian and his wife took time off to move to Costa Rica and re-evaluate their life priorities. Six months later, having been an avid blogger on finance and stocks on the Motley Fool's discussion boards, Brian entered the Motley Fool's Writer Development Program. He has been writing for the Fool since 2010, and loves all-things-Wisconsin.
