MMM #5: Recovering From Financial Mistakes

Life can be messy, and so we don’t want to curate the personal finance world.  We all make mistakes, even those of us who live and breathe personal finance.  Yet, in many places it feels like the message is “look at how perfect I am; you can be perfect, too!”  In this episode, we will dispell this myth by discussing financial mistakes we can all learn from and how to recover from those financial mistakes, too.

Listener Question of the Week:

    Thanks for mentioning my question… but you didn’t really address the second part. How much risk is there in syndication now with all the money chasing after returns?

    And maybe I was noticing more syndication deals because of blogger’s sponsor deals. But where my question came from is private equity and family offices are no longer finding good Real Estate deals (the “smart” money), so how is a syndicate to have a good deal?

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.
