There is a heated debate in the personal finance arena. What is the best route to financial independence? Is it through passive income (like real estate) or through passive index fund investing and a safe withdrawal rate?
Where do you sit in this great debate? Listen to today’s episode to find out.
What You’ll Learn:
In this episode of Money Meets Medicine, “The Two Paths to Financial Independence,” you’re going to learn:
- Which method of earning financial independence is better for you!

Quotes to Remember:
“If you fully stop work, your investments have to earn the paycheck for you!”
“As long as any income stream you have is something you’re passionate about… I think you can look at it as a passion project and source of income in retirement.”
“It’s the iceberg effect. You only see the top little bit, you don’t realize all the hard work that went into everything down below.”
