Today’s guest comes someone who loves numbers even more than I do. As an actuary, the guy practically bathes in numbers. He also spends a lot of time contemplating heartwarming topics like life expectancy and the factors that alter it. The Actuary on FIRE (clever name!) is not to be confused with actually on fire; but instead is an actuary with a family on the east coast and he’s revving up ...

I was browsing the Bogleheads forum last night, and my eyes naturally gravitated to the thread titled “What is FI if you love your job?” The short answer is that FI is financial independence. Nothing more, nothing less, and it doesn’t look any different if you love, hate, or feel indifferent towards your job. The long answer, after learning that the man asking the question is about 10 years away from FI, ...

Today’s Saturday Selection from the White Coat Investor is an oldie but goodie discussing defined benefit pension plans, also known as cash balance plans. While the plans aren’t available to W-2 employees, they can be an option for those whose income is earned as a 1099, i.e. the self-employed and practice partners. The higher your marginal tax rate, the more benefit you’ll see from a cash balance plan. Read on to learn ...

Today’s post is a guest post from The Wall Street Physician, a former Wall Street trader turned physician who blogs on investing topics pertinent to physicians and high income professionals like us. Regular readers of this site should be familiar with the good doctor, as his writings have been featured a number of times in The Sunday Best. His posts have also appeared on KevinMD and The White Coat Investor, and ...

I hopped out of the shower and into my Fruit of the Looms. After a quick electric shave, powered by Duracell, I put on my favorite Original Penguin shirt from Munsingwear and a pair of jeans and strapped on my Tony Lama boots. I looked pretty sharp. Not as cute as my son in his Garanimals or as dashing as my wife and her Helzberg Diamond ring and white gold necklace ...

Today’s Christopher Guest Post starring Dominic, the Gen Y Finance Guy, is a bit of a two-for-one, or BOGO if you will. Please stick around here to learn a lot more about our half-millionaire friend and suffer my attempts at witty banter, then head on over to his site to read my Freedom Fighter Interview there. While Dom is not a physician, he is a high income professional who got a head ...

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The best way to get a head start on a better financial future is to “live like a resident” for the first couple years out of residency. That’s right. Take that six-figure job, the fat signing bonus, and pretend nothing has changed. Park your K-car between the Lexus and the Land Rover. Just be sure not to leave any door dings. You could ...
