What is Kerrick Consulting? It started as a blog discussing travel hacks, credit cards and more, and developed further after a few invitations to speak with outside groups and consult with individuals on their personal finances. Kerrick Consulting is now the sole proprietorship used to formally represent services offered by Brian Kerrick.
