Journal Club 5-2-19

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!

  • Odds are, when on this journey of achieving financial independence, you're not only doing it for yourself, your kids fall in line somewhere on the trajectory. In this article on ChooseFI, we see exactly why it's important to consider your kids when making financial decisions, with a particular focus on opening a Roth IRA. 
  • SmartMoneyMD thinks that if physicians have side gigs, they very well be purposeful; otherwise, the problem could be you in “the system.” In this blog, he shares a little about the emergence of the physician side-gig and why doctors shouldn't have to find one.
  • In this blog, Wealthy Doc suggests we assess how happy we are in our clinical careers on the scale of love and like. If you aren't completely and wholly happy with where you are as a physician, try any one of these 35 practical (and somewhat small) life-adjustments.
  • Finance blogger, Ryan Inman, addresses some of the most pressing finance topics posed by physicians, one surrounding the topic of estate planning. Considering that most of us spend a large part of our clinical careers learning how best to perform in that role, alongside our side hustles, we might not be thinking about what happens if we're no longer living. So the question deserves asking: do you have an estate plan?

A little bit of motivation below. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
