I’m not a financial advisor, let me state that clearly now.
I’m an educated young professional who finished college with student loans and little to no guidance on money management or building wealth.
While everyone stressed the importance of finding a good-paying job, no one told me all the sacrifices I had to make to get here and all of the competing expenses that would take away my hard-earned money. Most importantly, no one gave me the tools I needed to build wealth.
In fact, I didn’t realize building wealth and learning about personal finance was so important until the debt from my student loans and credit cards started piling up and I realized that despite the six-figure salary I was virtually guaranteed as a doctor, I still might not have the quality of life I thought I would.
Thankfully, I always had an interest in finance.
Although I learned a few things after I finished undergrad, I set out to learn as much as I could during my [limited] free time as a med student. Whenever I got home early from the hospital, I read books, listened to podcasts, and spoke with other professionals to gain tons of knowledge.
Once I discovered some finance tips that would save me thousands of dollars, and tools that could make me worth millions, I wanted to share it with everyone, especially other young professionals like me who weren’t simply born into wealth.
Unlike finance gurus or established investment specialists, I don’t have some ulterior motive.
My goal is to share some of the money management tips I’ve learned in an easy-to-understand, concise, manner without taking up too much of your time.
I realize everyone hasn’t networked with investment bankers on Wall Street or worked in finance so I’ll share some of the tips I learned when I was there. I know you don’t have time to sift through a laundry list of resources on the subject, so I’ll provide you with highlights of good books that got me to where I am today. Many financial websites use terms many of us are unfamiliar with, so I’ll avoid “jargon” and explain things in ways that might be easier to grasp.
Basically, I want to help you learn about money. The more you know about personal finance, the sooner you can manage your money in a way that will give you the freedom to live, work, and travel as you please while still being able to take care of your family and basic needs.
