Retirement


Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today is kind of a short post which is more about the “feelings” of Finances rather than dollar signs, saving, and expenses. Today we’re going to talk about “Comfortable”. Comfortable? Yea. Basically, there are a lot of levels of wealth. You can find different takes on this, but the basic gist of it is when you’re first starting out at building wealth you worry about everything. “Can I afford […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today will be a short post about “Revisiting the Roth 401k”. Revisiting the Roth 401k? Yea. I’ve talked about it before multiple times, but in general, there aren’t that many instances (for doctors) that using a Roth 401k makes sense. One of the times that it makes a lot of sense is when you’re a resident. However, I’ve discussed some other times when you can consider utilizing a Roth […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This will be a short post about why you should “Starting with The End”. Starting with The End? Yea. First, a little background. I had a little staycation this weekend. We went over to the North Shore and spend a few nights at Turtle Bay. The kids had fun with the pool, slides, and the beach. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to see any turtles since it was a little […]

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? Perhaps you forgot about my prior post, Many Paths to the Top of the Mountain. If you haven’t read it, go ahead and give it a read, since I’ll be referring to it in this follow-up post. Don’t worry. I’ll wait. Ok, I’m caught up now. […]
