Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. I’ve talked about the Windfall Management Exercise recently and about Retiring Early before. Today let’s ponder “What if I retired today?” Is this another “Finance Exercise”? Yes. Kind of like the Windfall Management Exercise, this “What if I retired today?” is another exercise, just to kind of test your mindset. Here is the beginning of your retirement story: It’s July 13, 2018, you’ve received word that you now have […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today I’m going to talk about “Crypto Diversification“. Crypto Diversification? Yea.

Being a Doctor in Hawaii #illumedati



Hey everyone, it’s The 4th of July… so Happy 4th of July! I was going to write about Crypto Diversification (and why I don’t do it), but I’ll save that for next week.

For those of you who have this holiday […]

Hey everyone it’s Medicine Mondays again. And… I just realized it’s July… Everyone knows what that means, right? What does it mean? It means it’s time for the new interns to start!
