MMM #34: How to Talk About Money With Friends and Family
We love getting reader questions. We enjoy them so much we’ve dedicated a whole episode to one question.
This question is from Dr. Jeff Bank. We have summarized. He asks:

I would like to help educate my friends and colleagues but I have limited success in getting them to engage in the conversation or to take further action on their financial habits. I realize the drive to change financial habits or any habit has to come from the individual, but I wanted to see what tips or tricks you have to spark that initial conversation and or change.”
We answer his question in today’s post. Keep reading!

Physician turnover is high, specifically after the first 2-5 years of training. With doctors changing jobs so often, it is important to establish an emergency fund early on (and to consider the cost of leaving a job in medicine).
So today we wanted to dive into why everyone, including us, says you need an emergency fund, where you should put that money, what to use it for, and what NOT to use it for. We are also going to do some real talk on doing the math BEFORE you decide to either change jobs or leave medicine altogether.
