Retirement


Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. This is kind of a post in combination with Whatever Wednesdays because it involves Crypto. Today, we’re going to talk about “Crypto, Scams, and Physicians”. Crypto, Scams, and Physicians First things first. I’m probably one of the very, very few doctors that still talks about Crypto. Since the “bubble” of 2017, and “crash” of 2018, crypto has been in a bear market, and rightly so. They really haven’t produced […]

Crypto, Scams, and Physicians #illumedati


Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today we’re going to examine “An Unpopular Opinion about FIRE”. An Unpopular Opinion about FIRE First things first. Perhaps you may be thinking that this post is going to go into a heated debate about FIRE and whether I like/dislike it. Maybe you thought I was going to Suze Orman style and talk about how “bad” it is. I’m not here to talk about those things. I’ve already talked […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today, “Let’s Talk About the SECURE Act“. The SECURE Act I mentioned it before a little while ago in a previous post. However, it just recently passed through both Congress and the Senate, and Trump signed it into law this week. There is a lot of little things in this act, but long story short, the general public is behind in regards to retirement. This act is going to […]

Question
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. I’ve talked about “Your Number” and “Different Numbers” but today’s post is going to be about “Your Number” Revisited. This short post is mostly just as a thinking exercise. However, let’s start with some background: I was talking to my contractor on Thursday. He’s still been working on my lanai (deck). He comes and works hard and I always try to bring out some ice cold water for him. […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. After the roadmap update I wanted to talk about being “Fascinated by FIRE”. Fascinated by FIRE? Yea. It seems like pretty much every other day I get an article that shows up about Financial Independence Retire Early (FIRE). Of course, my wife and my friends get them too. Since they know I’m into this “finance stuff” they usually send them to me. As such, I do my best to […]

Future Robot
Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today is going to be a fun post about “Predicting the Future”. Predicting the Future? Yea, let’s pretend it’s been 15 years. So it’s 2034. So what’s 2034 like? 2034 means my daughter Kylie is 21 years old and will be starting her senior year in college. Where that is I’m not really sure. My current guess is that she leaves Hawaii and goes to college on the mainland […]
