    I completely agree that a hybrid approach is a great way to go about it. Everyone needs to decide what is best for them but stock market and real estate investing are not mutually exclusive.

    My financial plan calls for 41% savings rate with 1/3 going to debt pay down, 1/3 to stock market, and 1/3 to active real estate investing in cash flowing rentals (10% cash on cash properties)

    Diversification is always beneficial. So it never makes sense when people argue against diversification with stock and real estate investing. It’s not necessary for all but definitely is a great strategy in my opinion. I look at REI as an accelerant to wealth building and smart index fund investing as the foundation builder.

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.
