MMM #25: Good Help Ain’t Cheap When It Comes to Financial Planners

If you want something done right, you better do it yourself… or pay good money to find someone to help you do it! This is particularly true when it comes to matters of personal finance.  It is hard enough to find good help in the financial world and, even when you do, you are going to pay for it.  How do you separate what’s worth the money and what’s not?  That’s what this episode is all about.

This Episode’s Sponsor

This episode is brought to you by Physician Wealth Services.  You may have heard of it before, and that’s because it is the flat fee-only firm run by none other than my co-host Ryan Inman.

I’ve known Ryan for some time now and I can tell you two things about Ryan that stand out.  The first is his practice structure, which provides a fair flat fee that is both transparent and fair.  It certainly meets the gold-standard that I tell my students to find. The second is that Ryan and his practice partner Kayse do everything within their power to optimize and individualize plans to best suit their clients’ needs.

This is one of the reasons that Physician Wealth Services makes my very small list of recommended financial planners.  If you want to see if Physician Wealth Services would be a good fit for you, visit to schedule a free introductory call.

“Advice for transitioning to new attendings with possible student loan payments being pushed back until September 2020, would you adjust your plan of attack with how you use your money budgeted for your WAR? Of course keeping WAR rate the same and knowing loans will come due.”
