When your life goals have you pinned up against the wall, it's time to fight back. Today, I talk about how I fought back to achieve both my investment goals and my goal to destroy my debt.

The Physician Philosopher website is geared towards helping young medical professionals and trainees, I think it's useful to talk about ways to supplement our incomes.   After all, this really helps us build wealth more quickly.  This is often done through side hustles such as locum tenens work, medical malpractice reviews, incentives, and even making an invention!
