Have you ever felt like things are getting really heavy? And that you need to make a change? That is what we are going to do today on the show today. We are going to pull back the curtain and talk about things that have been going on in our lives. Often people don’t think about the lives of the people behind the YouTube videos or podcasts like this one, Money Meets Medicine. So today we are going to dive in and talk about hard decisions on this podcast Money Meets Medicine. Join us as we explore why resting in your personal and financial lives is essential for healthy success.
Is there a purchase you’ve been thinking about, but are afraid you should be spending your money in “better ways?” Listen along today as we talk about that Porsche 981 Cayman S, house, or expensive vacation you want, and how to get it. Learn how you can save for tomorrow while you also enjoy today.
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.
