Listener Question of the Week:
Today’s listener question comes from Jordan Fennema
What is your take on investing in individual stocks vs the classically taught index fund strategy, particularly in this rapidly declining market? A lot of people seem to be going against traditional advice because this is a “unique situation” and “normal principles of investing don’t apply right now”. Not sure if they’re wrong or if there really is some benefit to be had jumping out of the index funds.

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.
