MMM #27: Strategies for Handling Market Corrections

It seems that the market has seen more volatility in the last 12 months than it has seen in the last 10 years.  This volatility has turned seemingly solid investors into worried investors with a quivering lip at times.  Why?  Because of the market corrections that were experienced.  If market history has anything to say, there are more market corrections on the way.  How should you handle them?  That’s what this post is all about! 

What You’ll Learn:

In this episode of Money Meets Medicine, “Strategies for Handling Market Corrections,” you’ll learn:

  • How to handle a volatile market.
  • Why it’s a waste to try and time the market.
  • Why you should act like a bear during a bear market.
  • Why corrections for the market are actually healthy.
  • And more!

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.
