Money Minutes #11

In this episode we jump back into the subject of employment contracts with part two of one of the most important topics for a physician coming out of residency.


Money Minutes #10

Negotiating your first employment contract can be one of the most intimidating pre-employment activities prior to donning the white coat. Having an understanding of your employer’s expectations and what is contained within the four corners of the paper on which you sign will go a long way to relieving the uncertainty and concerns related to a document which will play a primary role in your financial life. Listen here for Part 1 of our contracts discussion.

This month we talk about an often neglected topic in financial planning, what to do when encountered with the unspeakable reality of a catastrophe.


Money Minutes #8

This month we take a look at financial trends unique to female physicians. Today’s doctors are going to be working harder, logging longer hours, and getting paid less; thus the need to stay engaged with one’s finances, and to work closely with a qualified financial adviser to build financial security.

From Uber to Airbnb, side opportunities are defining ways to enhance one's income potential. It is no different for those of us in medicine and creative possibilities abound.


Money Minutes #4

In this fourth episode, we take a detailed look at the advantages of the Roth 401K. The Roth is an often mentioned financial product but the understanding of its pearls goes a lot deeper than just the is more than just a retirement account!
