Some call it physician burnout. Others focus on prevention, citing physician resilience as an important preventive quality. Some reject those terms in favor of more accurate depictions. Dr. Zubin Damania, a.k.a. recently produced a video describing the epidemic as the result of moral injury. However you want to frame the issue, it’s a real problem. Disillusioned physicians become overwhelmed, disempowered, and disengaged. I’ve suggested monetary solutions — there are situations ...

The White Coat Investor Network has expanded! I’m proud to introduce a physician and blogger who is very likely familiar to you, Dr. James Turner a.k.a. The Physician Philosopher. The good doctor commonly goes by “Jimmy,” which conjures up several images, most prominently the one with Jimmy from Good Times saying Dyn-o-mite! And we can’t call him Jim because we already have a Jim Dahle, so I’m going to stick ...

The Sunday Best is a collection of articles I’ve curated from the furthest reaches of the internet for your reading pleasure. Every week, I scan hundreds of headlines, read dozens of posts, and bring you the best of the best to save you time and mental energy. Financial Independence (FI) is a primary focus, but it’s an awfully broad topic. I tend to approach FI and early retirement from a ...

A “glide path” describes how your asset allocation is expected to change over time. The traditional sentiment is that the percentage allocated to stocks should decrease as you approach and enter retirement. That’s the approach taken by Target Date Funds and traditional financial planning. Does that make sense for you? William Bernstein, MD is often quoted and paraphrased, having stated that you ought to stop playing once you’ve won the ...

Not all index funds are created equally. While they may follow similar indices in a similar manner, the costs involved can vary greatly. If you’ve invested in a simple three-fund portfolio or a variation with a quality, low-cost firm, you’ve probably got costs of well under a tenth of a percent. Would you believe there are companies chargin more than 1% per year for an S&P 500 fund? It’s true, ...

Every three months, I publish an update to let you know how well my own portfolio has performed and what’s going on with the blog. Some people like to know the blog stats, believe it or not. I used to track spending, too, but after three years of consistent spending, I decided there was little value-add for us to continue such close tracking. I may start to track our post-FI ...

Dr. Peter Kim poses a simple question in today’s Saturday Selection. It’s a great question to ask, and an important question to ponder. If you’re not making good progress towards financial independence or financial freedom, what’s holding you back? Most people reading this website have the income to make it happen in a couple of decades or less. Live on half your takehome pay, use the rest to retire debts ...

If you’d like to create a comprehensive financial plan, I can think of three good options. One: Work with a vetted fiduciary, fee-only financial advisor. You should come out with a sound plan, some understanding of what goes into the plan, and it will probably set you back a few thousand dollars. Two: Go it alone. Read books and blogs to learn everything you can about investment management, debt management, ...

Two hundred and twenty dollars a day. That seems like a lot of money! It’s pretty rare that I actually go out and spend $220. We couldn’t possibly be doing so day in and day out. Or could we? While I may not be handing over eleven $20 bills to someone every day, or charging $220 on our credit cards on a daily basis, expense tracking has shown us that, ...
