Here's Journal Club 5-1-20! Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After manually filtering through the millions of articles out there on the web so you don't have to, and I present a few that impacted my life this week. Be safe and stay well!
- Physicians have always worked hard, but during the COVID-19 pandemic, many have seen and respected physicians in a whole new way. There are many companies who are recognizing those healthcare workers on the front lines by offering their goods, services, and products at a discount or in some cases for free. The White Coat Investor has compiled a list of several companies that are part of this wonderful advantage, at least for a short while. Take a look. Who knows, maybe some of your favorite places are on the list!
- Millennial Money Man has also come up with a list of resources regarding relief during the COVID-19 pandemic. There's a lot of helpful information in this guide, including which banks are offering increased card limits and removal of any overdraft or late fees. It's worth taking a look and finding out if any of these “acts of forgiveness” apply to you. Even if you yourself don't need assistance, maybe you know someone who does. Sharing is caring.
- If you're someone who earns passive income through real estate, or even if you're someone who's thinking about starting to do so, it's an interesting time to invest. You may be able to get a good deal with everything going on at the moment. The Financial Samurai offers real estate buying strategies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Take a look.
- My good friends Letizia and Kenji, founders of Semi-Retired MD, now have their own podcast! In their last episode on the Rich Doc Poor Doc Podcast, they discuss the idea of what it means to be rich. There are some who think that being rich only has to do with the amount of money you have in your bank account, when in reality, it's so much more than that. Check out their episode, “What Does it Mean to Be Rich?”
I hope Journal Club 5-1-20 was helpful to you.
A little bit of motivation below. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
