“He is a spender, and I am a saver.  I just don’t know how to make sure we are saving enough toward the goals that matter most!”   One of the most common questions I get involves how someone can get on the same financial page with their partner or spouse.  After the Beta members took the MD to Financially Free course, many of them said this was no longer a problem in their marriage.  

After you have the tools to get on the same financial page with your spouse, the big picture becomes the motivation behind the “how-to” for your financial life.  That’s what this podcast episode is all about. 

What You’ll Learn:

In this episode of Money Meets Medicine, “For Better or For Worse: Getting on the Same Financial Page with Your Spouse,” you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s SO important to get along with your finances when it comes to money!
  • How Medical Degree to Financially Free can help you work together with your spouse.
  • How to figure out what you want with your life and finances.
  • Why getting on the same page about money, may not involve talking a bout money.
  • And more!

Quotes to Remember: 

“They [Doctors] spend so much time taking great care of people and learning their craft, they don’t want the stress of figuring out most things on their own.”

“Expectations and reality have to be linked.”

“The way you get them (your spouse) on the same page, is not by talking about money.”

MMM 88: Do Doctors Really Need Emergency Funds?

MMM 88: Do Doctors Really Need Emergency 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.
