Retirement


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.

My current guess is that she leaves Hawaii and goes to college on the mainland […]

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 […]
