Here's Journal Club 9/10/21! Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering through the articles on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this week. Be safe and stay well!

Come listen to 20+ amazing speakers (including Brandon Turner of BiggerPockets and Ken McElroy of the ABCs of Real Estate Investing) share their experience & knowledge to help you achieve your investing goals. Make sure you save your free seat here!
- Have you ever noticed that when you're learning something new, you start to see those concepts pop up in everyday things? Well, you're not alone. The Prudent Plastic Surgeon noticed a similar correlation between his music playlist and his journey to financial well-being. Curious to learn more about this interesting combination? I think you'll enjoy this piece – 10 Most FIRE Hip Hop Tracks in the World.
- If you're in the market looking for your first or next home, but you feel lost and anxious about the insane competition at the moment, then I think you'll find this post relatable. The author of Get Rich Slowly shares his experience of offering WAY over the already high asking price and still losing the bid in the article, We offered to buy a home for $128,000 over list — but it wasn't enough!
- As doctors, the pressure and stress that arises from being bound to a single means of income is evident and growing more than ever. So, it's not surprising that more and more doctors are looking to build multiple streams of income, whether through active or passive means. Additionally, practicing medicine can be a stressful profession on its own due to a host of factors that can further fuel your desire to find a different path. So, how likely are you to keep your current job if you made more money? Smart Money MD answers this question and more in the article, How much income do you need to stick through your doctor job?
- Speaking of making more money, have you thought about how much money you need to make in order to retire early? The author of Retire by 40 answers a fun question in his article – Can You Retire Early With 1 Million Dollars? The author shares a different perspective where he draws his lessons from his past investment experiences instead of trying to predict the future.
That's all for this week. I hope this week's journal club was helpful.
