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 Kayce 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 https://thephysicianphilosopher.com/Inman to schedule a free introductory call.
