Jimmy Mengel has been the managing editor for Wealth Wire, where he's brought readers the story behind the mainstream financial news each and every day.
Born and raised in Baltimore, he studied Journalism and English at Towson University. His passions include government malfeasance, civil liberties, natural health and the area where politics and finance collide...
He's been a true outsider ever since working on a qualitative research project on the Patriot Act forced him to rethink everything he knew about personal liberties and freedom.
Mr. Mengel is a frequent guest on CNBC and has been featured in the Christian Science Monitor regarding congressional food safety law. His writing has been featured on Outsider Club, Wealth Wire, Health Wire, Green Chip Stocks, and Healthier Talk.
He is the investment director of the thousands-strong financial advisory The Crow's Nest, an easy-to-follow program that will help secure your finances, grow what you have and allow you to retire comfortably instead of working until you drop – even if you've never bought a stock in your life. You can find out how to join him here.
When he is not avidly scouring the country for the best underground financial opportunities, he's discovering unique news ways to save money and grow his investments to plan a prosperous future for his two young children. Or you can always catch him playing his prized Fender Jaguar guitar in clubs up and down the East Coast.
