A Taxable Account Makes Sense

Ask a high income earner who works in the medical field and they’ll likely say that taxes are one of their biggest financial concerns. Accounts like a Traditional IRA, 401k, 403b, deferred comp and Roth IRAs (aka “tax shelters”) give investors tax benefits for investing in them. Does that mean that a regular taxable account is bad for medical professionals?

Stop Cleaning Your Car

Fast forward many years later, and I still have a tendency to do things myself. The main reason I clean my own cars, wax my cars, clean the house, and do the yard work is because I’m tight (or frugal, to put it politely). I don’t like the idea of paying others to do something that I am able to do.

Lifestyle Creep

One of the biggest obstacles to accumulating wealth is what I call Lifestyle Creep. Lifestyle Creep can delay retirement, financial stability, and financial independence. At its worst, lifestyle creep can drive families into large amounts of debt that they will spend decades climbing out of. Others have referred to it as lifestyle drift or lifestyle inflation.

Save Money on Life Insurance by Layering

Layering your life insurance involves getting multiple term policies to cover different time periods. The thought behind is that you won’t need the same amount of death benefit for a 20 or 30 year time period, but will need less insurance as you get older. Layering your insurance could mean having 3-4 different policies with terms of 10, 15, 20, or 30 years.

What Should a Doc Do First?

One question I am asked quite frequently by young physicians in residency is, "where do I start? Would you recommend buying a disability policy, even though we are strapped for cash right now? How important is it that I make payments on my student loans right now?”

Considerations When Purchasing a Home

Home purchases are arguably the biggest purchase we will make in our lifetime. It is very common for a young physician coming out of residency to be facing this decision head on. There are a number of questions that you need to ask yourself when making that very big purchase.

Three Common Mistakes Young Doctors Make

While most medical residents welcome their first independent job as a physician with open arms (and rightly so!), there are also many challenges that come with their rise in income. While these challenges are much better than the challenges a resident faces on a $50,000 salary they should not be ignored.
