The Prudent Plastic Surgeon

In this heartfelt post, Jordan Frey, MD shares the origins of his money relationship. He tells us about a childhood of external wealth, but internal financial scarcity.

That’s why there were always fancy leased cars in my garage but no college savings.

Jordan Frey, MD

He inherited these lessons of financial stability, but overcame them about 18 months ago in a sort of financial awakening. He is now a personal finance wizard, saving 40%+ of his income and investing in real estate to buy back his time.

Carpe Diem MD

Ian Cook, MD just got back from what looks like a really amazing road trip, and in this week’s post we get a rare glimpse into his personal life. They drove a retro RV from Southern California to Utah and then the Rock Mountain National Park. 

He also speaks eloquently about the fragility of life. During the trip, they discovered a flaw in the wheel of the RV that could have led to a catastrophic accident. They were able to fix the problem before it caused an accident, but it was sobering experience.

The Darwinian Doctor

This post came from a question I posed to thousands of fellow physicians: where should I move if I want three things:

  • Lower cost of living
  • Waterfront property
  • Good hospitals (and hopefully schools)

As you know, I live in Southern California. The cost of living here is 73% higher than the rest of the nation, and Los Angeles is the 9th most expensive city in the US. My wife and I love it here, but I’m not so jaded that I can’t imagine also loving another city or town in this vast nation of ours. So we think about moving pretty frequently.

I got dozens of suggestions from my colleagues, but only some of these cities had popular support. I researched these cities and organized them into a nice post for my readers. So if you’re thinking about making a move, check out this post before you decide where to go for the next stage of your life.
