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!
- The Best Ever Podcast? I'm sure you've heard of it. Joe Fairless has created a great platform for real estate pros to share their stories of trials and treasure. Yours truly was on episode 1806 to discuss family, investing, and the in-between. Hope you enjoy.
- The Physician Philosopher creates perspective around the famous Teddy Roosevelt quote, “comparison is the thief of joy.” While most physicians are inclined to mirror those we surround ourselves with, the comparison doesn't do us any good… or does it?
- Becoming a “rich doctor” isn't as easy as it sounds. Most of us have found that out the hard way. Smart Money MD talks about this conundrum and what physicians can do to ensure they don't allow distractions of apparent wealth seize pursuit of theirs.
- Would you rather be happy more frequently or more intensely? Turns out, the average happens to be the latter. Retire by 40 shares his recent encounter with the question as he and his son play a game that requires some measure of personal reflection.
- It can be difficult to assess which investments make the most sense for you and your financial situation. In the case of Self-Directed IRAs vs. IRAs, can you blame the naivete? Wealthy Mom MD compares both and gives us a few guiding insights.
- While concentration risk isn't a first action (or thought for that matter) to mitigate financial risk, Semi-Retired MD explores why addressing it can change the outcome of your personal finances.
- You're an investor and you may be investing in the foreign stock market. If this is the case, White Coat Investor says you may be eligible for the foreign tax credit. In this episode on the WCI Podcast, hear what it will take to make sure you qualify for the credit.
- Are meet-ups, gatherings, and conferences worth it? What's Up Podcast discusses the importance of meeting in real life with PT Money, Fire Up the Couch, and Marla Taner. And for fun, we hear a bit about their perspective on generational differences in the path of financial independence.
A little bit of motivation below. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
