      He seems a bit insufferable although the article could surely do him more justice.

      I recall a NFL football player earning like he did who drove a crap car and made similar choices on the understanding that his career was short lived and that income wouldn’t last. He was saving it while he still could.

      It would be interesting to explore his vision of his future as a YouTube star. He’s either savvy to save for when that business model fizzles out, or just cheap & boring (as this article seems to only skim the surface). I want to know the real “why”.

      If he's saving 99% of his income, he's refusing to spend on far more substantial expenses than coffee. As advice, it's disingenuous. Sure, he could save $1500 on coffee. That's noticeable, and a great example of his frugal mindset, his $220K / month income does far more of the work.

      Taking pride in frugality is a red flag for me. Coupon clippers and price Hawks bore me to death. In my opinion, it’s not an interesting subject at all.

      Extreme in savings is one thing, but this guy sounds really cheap! Refusing to buy a cup of coffee is absurd! How would you like to be his server at a restaurant, if he even goes to a restaurant. Expect a 5% tip!
