Every other week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After manually filtering through the millions of articles out there on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this month.
Here’s our Journal Club for the week, enjoy!
- Financial Samurai is breaking down retirement costs in “The Average Spending Amount in Retirement is Surprisingly High”.
- Many physician bloggers are seeking alternative sources of income or pursuing blogging because the landscape of medicine is changing rapidly, for better or worse. But does that mean we're being ungrateful? This guest post on White Coat Investor featuring Side Hustle Scrubs encourages physicians to Stop Whining About Job Satisfaction. Do you agree with him?
- The reality is you can still be grateful for your job while suffering from burnout. But The Physician Philosopher is here to help with that. Read his recent post, “I am Burned Out – Now What? Causes and Solutions” for some guidance.
- One of the reasons I love the personal finance blogging community is that everyone's stories and experiences are so different. It just goes to show that while some advice may be beneficial for one physician, it may not be right for another. Dr. McFrugal shows a perfect example of this in his recent post “Why I Don't Have a 529 Plan For My Child”. Where do you stand on the 529 plan?
- Dr. Breathe Easy Finance has a great “Get Out of Debt Series” to inspire others who are still working on their own debt. This one features an interview with an anonymous blogger who just finished paying off her own debt. Learn her strategy in “From One Geek to Another Debt Free at 27”
- Millionaire Doc is answering a common real estate question for investors. REITS – Should they be in your portfolio?
- Sometimes playing it safe and putting your money in high-interest savings accounts is a wise thing to do when it comes to things like saving to buy a house. But ever wonder what else your money could be doing? Pediatrician Finds FI discusses the Opportunity Cost of Buying A Home.
- On this podcast episode from Stacking Benjamins, learn where not to put your money. See 3 horrible investments people make in “Dumb Things Smart People Do With Their Money (With Jill Schlesinger)”
A little bit of motivation below. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
