We live in an amazing world of constant information, sometimes it can get overwhelming. "Future Proof Shares" is a weekly series with the goal of selecting a few interesting pieces of media on money and medicine from around the Interwebs. They may be old or new but will always be new to me. This series is inspired by "The Sunday Best" by my fellow physician money blogger Physician on FIRE (PoF). Enjoy!
- I've talked about whether you should invest or pay off debt before. Here is a more comprehensive analysis from another physician blogger Some Random Guy Online (SRGO) - Invest or Pay Off Student Loans: A Closer Look at the Numbers.
- Whether it is 401k, 403b, or IRA, I'm pretty much all in on Roth retirement accounts. But your situation may differ. The Wall Street Physician examines the choice for residents in The Traditional vs. Roth: Decision for Medical Residents.
- Speaking of Roth, if you happen to be fortunate enough to NOT qualify for a direct Roth IRA, first pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Then head over to Physician on Fire to check out how you can still take advantage of all the tax benefits of a Roth plan - Vanguard Backdoor Roth: a Step by Step Guide.
- This one is a long time coming. I admit I was a little excited to get the announcement in my email. The prolific Dr. Dahle has officially launched the White Coat Investor Podcast! There are already 5 episodes available. Go grab them all at iTunes or Overcast.
- Now I don't usually include paywalled content as part of the weekly shares, but Becoming Warren Buffet is so special that it might just be good enough to justify paying for HBO (or at least borrow your friend's login temporarily). How much would you pay to get a behind the scenes look at who many consider the greatest investor in the 20th century? Preview below.
Contract Diagnostics is the country’s only firm 100% dedicated to Physician Contract Reviews. Their proprietary review process focuses around educating their Physician clients on how to negotiate and ask for things, what specifically to ask for, and an overall view of the ‘deal’. Not a law firm, they provide overall ‘deal’ advice in a much more comprehensive manner than a traditional lawyer would. While their attorneys review every contract, it is presented in a much different way based on your specific situation. Private Practice vs Hospital employed? Hospitalist vs Trauma Surgeon? California vs Florida…they are familiar with all the nuances of each specific situation and would love to help with yours.
