Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today is going to be a short post about “The 20 Year Career“. The 20 Year Career? Yea. I’ve kind of alluded to it before in a bunch of prior posts. However, I think that maybe we should reconsider the “conventional” 30 year career of a physician. In general, residents/fellows graduate in their early or mid 30s. This can also be your late or early 40s if you got […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today we’re going to do a little refresher about some basic finance stuff. Today’s post is about “The Mountain Revisited“. Mountain? What Mountain?

I’ll wait. Ok, I’m caught up now. […]

I would recommend you read the full article here on the Wall Street Journal. But if you’re lazy, you can […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today we’re going to talk about the constant battle of “Buy the Best” versus “Buy Cheap”. “Buy the Best” versus “Buy Cheap”? Yea. I think this is a constant battle that occurs in everyone’s mind whenever we’re at the store. There are conflicting ideals at work here: When you “Buy the Best” you are saying that buying the more expensive (possibly better) item that will provide better value long term […]

Hey everyone it’s Finance Fridays again, as promised, today I’m going go talk about Suze Orman and the $5 million retirement. Suze Orman and the $5 million retirement? Yea. If you’ve been following finance stuff, then you’ve probably heard of Suze Orman. She’s written a bunch of finance books and was previously a financial advisor for Merril Lynch. Recently, she came under fire for her commentary on the FIRE movement. Basically she said she “hates” it […]
