More on Jason Vitug of Phroogal

Jason Vitug is an author, speaker and first time entrepreneur and founder of Phroogal.  Jason has been called a millennial thought leader and financial motivator with his mix of personal stories of financial struggles and professional success. His inability to let go of debt and his upward trajectory left him confused and dissatisfied.  In 2012, Jason made a bold move to leave his senior executive job to figure things out which led to a 20 country-backpacking trip across the globe in 12 months.

He had his “aha-moment” when he realized he was living his childhood dream forgotten in the rush to financial adulthood. After returning home, Jason defined his purpose to empower a generation to live their dream lifestyle. His mission is to democratize financial knowledge and improve accessibility to resources so that you can live your Smile Lifestyle.
