What physicians should know about investing in real estate

As someone who can’t stop talking about passive income investments, I inevitably end up having a lot of conversations about investing in real estate.

Why aren’t doctors rich?

In the 1960s, Lew Goldberg showed that a physician’s intuition and judgment can be fatally flawed.  Interestingly, the same fatal flaw that was exposed by Goldberg is the same fatal flaw that causes some of the biggest financial mistakes that doctors make with money.  Why aren’t doctors rich?  Psychology has an interesting explanation that everyone should […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Your 401(k) is not a piggy bank

Many people look at their 401(k) like it is a piggy bank. Since they often don’t have any other savings, when they need a lump sum of money for a large purchase, the only account they have with a decent balance is their retirement account. Since most people are not saving outside of their retirement […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

There are only three valid reasons to file an extension on your taxes, which changes your required filing date from April 15th to October 15th.

It’s important to understand the money trail in medicine

There was a recent news brief stating that the average internist generates about $2.4 million annually for the hospitals that they work for.  While it’s no surprise that doctors help others make money, seeing a figure to your worth hammers home how much we sustain the health care system, often at our own expense.

There are better employee perks than a ping-pong table. 70 percent of Americans graduate college with student loan debt. That’s 45 million people who owe $1.6 trillion. So when employers use Goodly to offer $100 per month in student loan payback for a $6 fee, talent sticks around. The startup found 86 percent of employees said they’d stay with a company for at least five years if their employer helped pay down their student loans. Yet employers break even if workers stay just two extra months, ...

Why many doctors live paycheck to paycheck

Wealth seems to be an elusive dream for many people. They desire to become wealthy, but feel they don’t earn enough money to reach that goal, as if earning more would make the difference.

Is the physician financial independence community preaching to the choir?

Proof of concept is important because accountability is a tenuous thing. One can pretty much say whatever they want on the internet. They can boast. Spin half-truths. Tell a tale. The most deadly of these are the ones that are just a slight variation of reality. Personal finance is no different.

How financial insecurity sinks American IQ scores

Not being able to pay your bills has the functional equivalent of lowering your IQ by 13 points. Many Americans have scarcity mindsets because of their inability to pay their bills. In a scarcity mindset, your functional bandwidth decreases — it influences you to be less generous and less reasonable. The opposite of a mindset of scarcity is a mindset of abundance, which is what many entrepreneurs have. Abundance mindsets tend to build on to themselves if the environment is right. ...

Is financial independence selfish?

Reaching financial independence is no small feat. One has to turn inward and explore personal habits, goals, and rebalance value systems. These are somewhat introspective topics. Indeed, they require quite a bit of self-focus. This, I believe, is good. If we don’t continuously re-evaluate our beliefs and actions then how are we going to grow?

Physicians should take their time with big purchases

While at a gathering during residency, I found myself talking to an older physician.  He graduated from the same residency ten to fifteen years prior.  He was a natural leader and a good storyteller.  He was also a good teacher because he was about to teach me a lot about delayed gratification.

8 ways to go broke as a doctor

So much of personal finance and investing isn’t about winning; it’s about not losing.

Physicians should stop being afraid of getting audited by the IRS
