Journal Club 6-21-18


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!

  • Can I Retire Yet posted a great interview with ESI Money last week talking all about early retirement and financial independence. It's always beneficial to hear different perspectives on the journey and this is a great one. Read about it in “Retire with Abundance”.
  • One of the great things about the rise in financial blogs is that you can avoid making some pretty big financial mistakes by learning from other people's mistakes. Doctors on Debt wants to prevent you from making a particularly big one in “How To Screw Up Your Backdoor Roth IRA”. See it featured here on White Coat Investor's blog.
  • White Coat Investor also shared his personal story this week in a 3 part series called “The Story of the White Coat Investor”. You can read part 1 here, but make sure to read part 2 and part 3 as well. He goes over everything from his childhood upbringing in Alaska to how he ended up becoming a financial blogger.
  • If you've been following Dads Dollars and Debts recently, you know he and his family have had to rebuild and readjust many aspects of their lives after the Tubbs Fire. His recent post, “Living Smaller” talks about one of the changes they'll be making and why.

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


  1. Lots of good stuff here as usual. I really enjoyed the WCI series in particular. Good to learn a little about the person who has had such a huge influence on the physician finance community.

    Thanks for putting this together. There are a couple of thing here I haven’t seen yet, I’ll definitely check them out.
