WCI #268: When Is It Time to Stop Being Cheap?
55:06

In this episode we talk about when it is time to stop being so cheap and when to loosen the purse strings. For those of us that spend the many years of residency and early attending years being extremely frugal, it can be hard to know when and how to change that. We cover several questions that you can ask yourself to know if it is time to start having some fun with your money. We also tackle some reader questions regarding tax-loss harvesting with Bitcoin, asset protection for cars, and when you should change your investment strategy if the markets are bad. Hint: You don't! See full show notes here: https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/when-is-it-time-to-stop-being-cheap-268

WCI #260: Self Employed Retirement Accounts Q&A
45:41

In this episode we answer your questions about self-employed retirement plans. If you are self-employed, open a solo/individual 401(k). If you make a lot of money, you might consider a personal defined benefit plan. Do a backdoor Roth IRA and a health savings account. Those are your retirement plans for a self-employed doc. That's the basic setup.  Anything you want to save above and beyond that goes in a taxable account. So it is not that complicated. When you get into all the details though, there can be a lot more questions. We tackle those questions in this episode. See show notes here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/self-employed-retirement-accounts-qa-260/

WCI #259: Doctors Who Become Disabled
56:54

Two doctors who became disabled relatively early in their careers and had to learn to navigate the disability insurance world, while dealing with very difficult circumstances, join our podcast in this episode. We are happy that Dr. Kelli Sekulovich and Dr. Shakila Angadi were willing to share their experience and to help educate on the importance of disability insurance. 

You are running a risk all the time. One of the crazy things about a medical career, and other high-income professionals are very similar in this respect, is that you have spent a great deal of your life learning a valuable set of skills. That's partly why you're paid so highly. It doesn't take much to keep you from being able to convert those skills, that education, that knowledge into income. If you lose that ability, it's pretty bad. It is so important that we all have the right amount of disability insurance.

Our guest in this episode is Dr. Karsten. He's the mind behind the Early Retirement Now blog. He completed a PhD in economics, worked for the Federal Reserve for a while and taught economics. He joined the research department of an investment manager and got a CFA designation. He spent 10 years there before punching out to live the FIRE lifestyle a few years ago. He spent the first few months out on a world tour, visiting 20 plus countries, then settled down in the Northwest with his family. Early Retirement Now is a popular FI blog primarily because of Karsten's rigorous academic approach. We explore health insurance and withdrawal rates and strategies for early retirees and get his take on some controversial areas of finance like options and leverage. Interested in retiring early?

WCI #245: The Backdoor Roth Lives On
37:34

Today we discuss what happened in Congress and how, for now at least, the backdoor Roth lives on. You can proceed with your contributions as planned. Check out our tutorial to see how: https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/backdoor-roth-ira-tutorial/ . If at some point Congress decides to make this retroactively illegal, we will walk you through the process of undoing those contributions. We also discuss whether it is worth refinancing your student loans if you are not going for PSLF despite the extension of the student loan holiday. With inflation and rising interest rates this is a more complex question than it typically should be. We answer some questions about employer sponsored 401(k)s, signing bonuses and what kind of contributions to make if you are one of those super savers.

Wondering if you are getting the right coverage, unbiased advice, along with the best prices and discounts can make the process even more overwhelming.

WCI #239: Contract Negotiation and Student Loans
47:20

Today we are answering questions about contract negotiation. It is important to know what parts of a contract you can negotiate and when you likely won't have any control over your contract. It is critical to understand the details of your contract and we highly recommend having your contract reviewed by a professional. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/contract-negotiation-and-review/. You want to be crystal clear on your compensation, who pays for the tail, time off, sick time, maternity or paternity leave, and call structure etc. These are all things you can and should negotiate. We also cover a few more questions about student loans. The student loan landscape is ever changing but recently it has become easier to qualify for PSLF.

54:24

When you own your practice, you're able to give better care, have more control and less burnout over your professional life. In general, you make more money too. So, it is mostly all positive, although it does take some work upfront. Will and Juli Albright have been sharing their knowledge of practice startups on the blog for a couple of years, since they started their practice, Alamo Plastic Surgery. Will is the surgeon and Juli is the chief financial officer. They both join us in this episode to talk about their motivation to open a practice, the steps it took, the biggest obstacles and challenges, navigating salaries and benefits for employees, guarding against embezzlement, and marketing the practice. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/medical-practice-startup/

WCI #223: Understanding Cash Balance Plans
01:01:23

A defined benefit cash balance plan https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/cash-balance-plans-another-retirement-plan-for-professionals/ is a somewhat unusual and surprisingly physician specific retirement account. It is a type of a defined benefit plan. On one end you have a defined contribution plan like a 401(k) and on the other a defined benefit plan or pension plan. A cash balance pension, a subtype of defined benefit plan lies as kind of a hybrid between the two. It still falls in the category as a defined benefit plan, but it's purpose is designed not so that you have an annual income distribution after you retire but that you take the lump sum. Confused? Don't worry, we have Victor Mangona, who has developed an expertise in these plans, as our guest this episode. We discuss who should consider a cash balance plan, how much money can be put into a plan, the tax savings from using this plan, how to invest these assets, what happens if there is a loss in the account, and most importantly how to get your practice to adopt a cash balance plan so you can take advantage of these great accounts.

It’s story time, brought to you by https://Locumstory.com Today, we’ll be reading “One job, two jobs.”

WCI #220: Financial Priorities as a New Resident

The point of residency is to learn how to be a good doctor. It's not to try to get rich. But for new residents there are a few financial chores you need to take care of during residency. Don't drop the ball on these. Get in the habit of saving something each month from your paycheck, know where your money is going, and make sure you have critical insurance in place. We discuss these chores in more detail in this episode.

For our non resident listeners we also answer some of your questions about mega backdoor Roth IRAs, DFA ETFs vs Vanguard ETFs, getting rid of your whole life insurance policy, everyone's favorite tax form - form 8606, and cash balance plans.

10:52

It took this doctor 6 years to pay off her student loan debt because she muddled around for awhile before getting tired of the loans and getting more aggressive, throwing $3-4K a month at them.

WCI #218: How Much Car Can You Afford?
46:15

"Average Joe" is frequently poor because of his car. For most middle-class Americans, the reason they are not millionaires is sitting in the driveway. It is a really important concept to understand, that we are wasting a lot of money on cars. We simply consume it. You don't have to do that. Here is the other truth that makes it very difficult to talk about this subject, https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/drive-a-beater-get-rich/ , most doctors make enough money that they can drive a very nice car and still be financially successful. So, despite the fact that this is an important aspect of your financial life if you're middle-class, it doesn't matter nearly as much for doctors. However, in this episode we discuss how to know how much car you can afford, debunk some of the reasons why doctors justify getting new cars instead of driving something inexpensive, and talk about the most economical way to pay for your transportation. For those who have their vehicle situation all figured out, we also answer several listener questions about 457s, ETFs, and mutual funds.

WCI #217: Practicing Medicine in India
31:37

We have done episodes about what it is like to practice medicine in England, Australia, and Venezuela. Next up is India. With Dr. Raja we discuss what it is like to live in, attend medical school, train, and practice medicine in India. It is a fascinating country with a lot of different people, opinions, and politics as you move from one state to another, throughout the country. But it's great to get an introduction to it and learn a little bit more about it. We discuss the process for becoming a doctor there, the Indian medical system and differences between care in large cities and care in rural villages. Of course we talk about income, how they pay for college and medical school, how large their student loan burden is, and how they save for retirement. Inflation in India has ranged from 4% to 13% over the last 30 years. Inflation in the US recently went up to 5% (https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/inflation-basics/) . We discuss what lessons we can learn from Indians about how to live in an environment with significant inflation. Indian banks, tax brackets, sending money to India, and the importance of gold in India are all addressed in this interview. We hope you find it as interesting as we did.

WCI #214: Will Student Loans Be Forgiven?
53:03

Student loans have been on the back burner for the last year or so, as borrowers have enjoyed 0% interest on their federal loans. There has been lots of talk in Congress about loan forgiveness and what that could look like. With the break on interest scheduled to come to an end this Fall, student loans are about to come front and center. Being in this state of limbo leaves borrowers with hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans unsure of how to manage their loans going forward. Refinance and risk losing 0% interest if President Biden extends the deal? Or risk missing out on any loan forgiveness Congress may pass? There is a lot to think about right now so we brought on Andrew Paulson, of StudentLoanAdvice.com, in this week's episode to discuss loan forgiveness, interest rates, refinancing, consolidating and other questions about managing your student loan debt.

01:16:27

If you inherited retirement accounts or anticipate leaving retirement accounts to your heirs, it is important to understand the rules and options for managing those retirement accounts. This will help you use that inherited money wisely but also make good decisions in your estate planning. We discuss what the rules and options are plus which accounts are the best to inherit and which are the worst. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/rules-and-options-for-managing-inherited-retirement-accounts 

We also dive into the listener questions that came in while we were rafting the Grand Canyon. Student loans are on more people's minds lately. Should you refinance your student loans now? Can you invest student loan money in retirement accounts? We discuss some physician specific topics like how to choose a specialty and some non physician specific questions like the difference between being compensated by SARs vs RSUs. Lastly we answer important questions like what percentage of your income you should be saving towards retirement and how to deal with inflation and your investing portfolio.

WCI #211: Late Start Retirement Savings
51:55

Feeling like you are late to starting your retirement savings is a common sentiment. People are not generally as far behind as they think. Second career doctors have already taken care of some things that a doctor just coming out of residency has not, like owning a car, home, and raising children. Your highest earnings of your career are typically in your 50s. So, when you are earning more, it's easier to save more. This episode will help a later saver know what to prioritize and to understand some of the benefits of their age. The truth is that no doctor is ever really more than 10 years away from financial independence. You can do this and we can help. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/behind-in-the-retirement-savings-game/

25% of physicians will experience divorce. We get questions on the podcast and blog from doctors going through divorce frequently but we have little experience with it.

It is expensive and will greatly affect your financial planning. If you are in that 25% of physicians, this episode will answer many of your questions from attorney costs, mediation, child support, alimony, to valuing your assets, dividing them up equitably, and reevaluating your financial plan for the future.

45:10

For FIRE week on the White Coat Investor podcast, we have a guest host, Physician on Fire https://www.physicianonfire.com/credit-cards/ , discussing travel hacking and answering listener questions. You can earn free travel and he shows you how with regular spending and credit card welcome bonuses. Now credit cards are for convenience and only use them if you are disciplined enough to pay them off every month. Use autopay for all your cards and make sure you are getting at least 1.5% to 2% back on your everyday purchases. If you’re willing to pick up a new card a couple of times a year, and maybe cancel a card or two if you don’t think a card is worth the annual fee, you can get a LOT more bang for your buck by taking advantage of welcome bonuses. Let Leif show you how in this episode.

He also answers many questions about bonds and their role in your portfolio, as well as maximizing the 199A deduction, turnover rates in index funds, and understanding your taxes on side income.

192: Is Your Financial Plan Reasonable?
31:11

I often tell people having a written investing plan is crucial to their financial success. That requires that the investing plan first be reasonable. There are lots of portfolios out there that simply are not reasonable. There is not just one way to invest successfully. If you pick something reasonable and fund it adequately, you are highly likely to reach your goals. In this episode we will go through 10 ways to know if your written financial plan is reasonable, answer several listener questions about their financial plans, and give you directions on how to get a written financial plan in place, if you have not done this important step yet.

190: The Next Millionaire Next Door
46:19

We can learn a lot from the research examining how self-made, economically successful Americans became that way. Our guest this week is Sarah Stanley Fallaw. You may not be as familiar with her name as you are of her late father, Thomas Stanley, author of The Millionaire Next Door. See the full show notes for our interview here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/the-next-millionaire-next-door-podcast-190

They were involved in research examining these economically successful Americans and co-wrote The Next Millionaire Next Door. Much has changed from the first millionaire book. A new generation are hearing from self proclaimed experts in personal finance due to the proliferation of  financial blogs and podcasts, like WCI. In this episode we talk about the concept of a millionaire, though the name and image haven't changed, a million dollars is nowhere near what it used to be. We discuss the decisions, behaviors, and characteristics of the new millionaire next door and how they align with the discipline of building wealth.  The main lessons of her work seem to be that millionaires are mostly self-made, surprisingly frugal, and spend time doing things that build wealth. We talk about each of those things in this episode.

189: Inherited IRAs
38:30

If you are fortunate enough to inherit an IRA there are some things you should know. Inherited IRAs, also known as stretch IRAs (https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/new-stretch-ira/)  have changed this year. You can no longer leave it to your great grandchild and have them stretch it over the next 80 years. They have to withdraw all the money in year 10. But a listener asked how this affects the backdoor Roth IRA, when it makes sense to roll the IRA over, and whether you can roll these over in the same way as you would other accounts. We delve into these questions in this episode for those looking forward to an inherited IRA. 

For the rest of you, we talk about whether you should do Roth or tax-deferred 401K contributions, rebuilding your practice during COVID, rebalancing your accounts, whether a medical student should buy disability and umbrella insurance, and what to do if you should have done your Roth IRA through the backdoor but you didn't.

51:01

The work of Dr. Rick Hodes in Ethiopia is inspiring. He is working in an international inter-religious, interfaith, inter-ethnic environment to make the world a better place. He is the doctor we wrote we wanted to be in our medical school admission essay. We talk about how he got started practicing medicine internationally, the interesting work that he has done, and the many people that he has been able to help. We discuss the finances behind work like this and the effort put into fundraising. Some people have criticized international aid programs saying they are doing more harm than good and we get into that too. Many of our profession are suffering from burnout. Dr. Hodes has some advice on that as well, 30+ years into his career. We also talk about how you can help. For not a lot of money, we can help a lot of people. Rick shows us what a true calling in medicine can look like. Take a listen and see if you find this interview as inspiring as I did.

187: How Much Should You Put in a Roth?
53:44

Is there a recommended percentage of your portfolio that should be in Roth accounts when you retire? We are asked this question a lot. People think there must be an optimal mix. Is there? And is it worth the cost to get to it? These questions are discussed in this episode. There is a general rule of when to make pre-tax vs post-tax retirement contributions as well as when are good times to do Roth conversions. Listen to this show to better understand those as well.

We also dive into listener questions about paying off the mortgage vs investing in a taxable account, understanding how to max out your 401(k), cash balance plans, investing in farmland, over contributing to your HSA, rebalancing your portfolio between accounts, investing in annuities, and the complications of sharing assets with extended family members. A wide variety of listener questions this week that will hopefully be helpful to many.

186: Pilots are High Income Professionals Too
48:07

The financial pathway of a major airline pilot is remarkably similar to that of a doctor. A lot of people don't realize they make doctor-like incomes and actually have a lot of doctor-like financial challenges. You make little to no income for a decade, then pretty good income for as long as you can go without burning out. Joining us in this episode is Jason Depew, a veteran and current captain with Delta. We discuss the parallels between the financial lives of doctors and pilots like high income, burnout, geographical arbitrage, lack of financial education, and the loss of income during this pandemic. Pilots are unionized. We talk about the benefits and drawbacks of being part of a powerful union, which may be the future of medical professionals. Pilots, especially with the major airlines, are a high income professional category that we don't  discuss a lot at the White Coat Investor, but this episode will be a great resource for our pilot listeners as well as all other high income professionals.

185: Finances in the Great White North
44:59

The Canadian financial system is similar but not quite the same as the U.S. financial system. In this episode we talk about the Canadian retirement system, the programs they have similar to the U.S. social security system. We discuss their versions of our Traditional and Roth IRA accounts. Considering our close proximity to each other, it is no surprise that a couple of listeners have questions about working in one country and living in another as well as Americans married to Canadians and what to do about citizenship. We cover the pros and cons of those situations in this episode. For those with no connection to the Great White North we also answer other questions about separately managed accounts, over-contributing to the 457(b), marketing timing in the de-cumulation phase, UTMA accounts, and the CARES Act tax deductible student loan payment.

184: Selling Your Practice to a Private Equity Firm
01:08:15

It is becoming more and more common for physician groups to be approached by a private equity firm that wants to buy the practice and make them “more efficient.” Of course the older partners think that this is a good time to sell. The younger doctors thought they just joined a partnership and were looking forward to owning their business and having control. What do you do if you are the younger doctor? We discuss some ideas in this episode that will hopefully help, if you find yourself in this situation.

We also answer a lot of other listener question about challenges facing families with children with special needs, small business retirement accounts, understanding a wash sale, reporting the backdoor Roth IRA with a loss, understanding dividend stock investing, the S&P 500 vs total stock market index fund, and what recommendations I have for medical students to do early in their career to prepare themselves for entering the workforce.

183: Physician Moms and Their Finances
55:29

Our guest today is Dr. Hala Sabry, the founder of the Physician Moms Group on Facebook. Who better to ask about physician moms and their finances than a physician mom managing a group with 75,000+ other physician mom members! We delve into lots of topics surrounding finances as a physician mom including infertility, child care, career changes, and gender wage gap. We talk about women in medicine.  Over 50% of medical students are now women. What implications will that have for the physician workforce? Women are often hesitant to negotiate when getting a new job. What can be done to encourage them to negotiate harder and avoid any negative consequences that could come from doing so?

Not everyone has this Instagram perfect life where they're beautiful and have no struggles. Our lives are hard, layered, and dynamic. Not only is medicine your profession, but it is your identity. Your worlds kind of collide as a physician mom and it is a lot of pressure. The truth is, it is not just women who are struggling. Men have the same issues, balancing life and work and all these other things but today's episode really focuses on them from a woman's perspective. 

Now is the time to start thinking about whether your current tax plan is truly tax-efficient and keeping more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.  At Cerebral Tax Advisors, https://www.cerebraltaxadvisors.com/ they focus on all year PROACTIVE tax planning, and, as the spouse of a physician, their founder, Alexis Gallati, has over 18 years of experience using court-tested, IRS approved tax strategies to lower your effective tax rate and increase your wealth.  Her services are flat rate, and she will show you your return on investment before you invest in Cerebral’s services.  With 2020 coming to a close, NOW is the time to see if you are missing vital strategies in your tax plan.

More importantly what should you do with your portfolio based on these trends? We dive into this past market data in this episode, find some interesting trends, and give some warnings on what you should do.

Spoiler: Please don't make any huge changes to your investing plan based on how the election is going, what is in the political news, even what is in the economic news.

Practicing evidence-based medicine is important to physicians, looking at data and changing our practice according to it. Our guest in this episode, Larry Swedroe, has been a proponent of evidence-based investing for a long-time. His teachings have affected me over the years and certainly affected my portfolio construction. In this interview we talk about the limited data set in finance in comparison to other more scientific fields and how much we can rely on that retrospective data going forward. We discuss portfolio construction, alternative asset classes, recommended strategies for spending down assets in retirement, and investment mistakes smart investors make. Are you a smart investor?

01:24:59

What does it take to become a millionaire? Hear the experiences of seven millionaires in this episode talk about how they did it. You may recall we did our first episode with physician millionaires the start of 2020. People loved hearing from these successful doctors and what they did to win financially, but they wanted more women represented. So all seven guests today are female, 6 physicians and an engineer. We talk about similar stuff to what we did last episode, how they did it, their mindset, what their money is invested in, but also discuss what it is like as a woman to have a career as a higher earner and be able to build wealth. Did their gender hold them back in that pursuit or not? What were their keys to success? What advice do they have for those who are a decade or two behind them, wondering, “can I, as a woman, become a millionaire still? If you go and look at the data, it is a pretty small percentage of physicians in their 60s that have a net worth more than $5 million. It is awesome to have several all in one episode to learn from. Enjoy!

There are more risks and hassle to being a partner but more rewards and profits as well. We discuss the advantages and responsibilities to becoming a partner in a practice including getting K-1s instead of W-2s, making quarterly estimated tax payments, writing off legitimate business expenses, paying for your own benefits and understanding retirement accounts available to you. In this episode listener questions are also answered about losing faith in long term market returns, being an accredited investor, value tilting your portfolio, what to do with your cash, tax gain harvesting, and the pro-rata rule.

We talk about what the medical system is like in Australia as well as how physicians are compensated. From time to time we bring doctors on the show from other countries, we've had a British physician and a doctor who trained in Venezuela on. It is fun to dive into the medical world of another country. Sometimes in the U.S. we get these almost blinders on and think we're the only country in the world. We don't really realize that there are a lot of lessons that could be learned from other countries, that we can really apply in our own lives to simplify both our medical system and our financial system. I think you will find this interview really interesting.

177: Financial Planning for Children with Special Needs
59:03

Your financial planning after having a child with special needs will be different than you might have otherwise anticipated. In this episode we talk about 6 aspects of financial planning that are important to understand when you are in this situation. Your investing horizon is no longer your lifetime. It is now your child's lifetime. Government resources available to your child will affect your financial planning. You will need to look at your life, disability, and health insurance differently as a parent with a child with special needs. The benefits of an individual educational plan at school will help with the financial aspect of raising a child with special needs.  Some states provide better benefits to those living with disabilities, both while in school and as adults. This could play a part in the decision you make of where to live with your child. ABLE accounts and irrevocable trusts are also discussed. 

For those not in this situation we also cover many listener questions in this episode, including converting bonds to TIPS funds, true-ups and vesting in your work retirement plans, whether you should be financially planning for the future you want or the future that might end up happening, the problems with leaving your assets to multiple people, choosing a renter, whether to invest in a 529 for K-12 private school, what percentage of an asset allocation international stocks should comprise and where they should go, and more.

176: A Public Service Loan Forgiveness Success Story
40:32

I have been asked for several years if any doctors have received public service loan forgiveness. Public Service Loan Forgiveness first became available in 2007. Since it is a ten year program, the first eligible recipients would be in 2017 but for various reasons a lot of people aren't going to be eligible for it until 2021-2023. Mostly because the program was not very well known when it first came out, as the doctor will mention in this episode. But I am excited to bring two special guests on the podcast today. I have been waiting to have guests like this on for three years. In this episode I interview Mariko and Dan about their experience working through the PSLF program for ten years and their recent success of receiving forgiveness. We talk about their experience with the phone calls, documentation, and time they put into fixing all the mistakes made by their student loan servicers. They share tips for those following in their footsteps. If you are thinking about going for PSLF or are currently working towards it, this is a must listen to episode.

For the rest of you, we answer a couple of listener questions at the end about preferred stocks and Roth vs Traditional 401(k) contributions.

A lot of physicians have questions about locum tenens, and locumstory.com is the place for them to get real, unbiased answers to those questions, basic questions like, “What is locum tenens?” to more complex questions about pay ranges, taxes, various specialties, and how locum tenens works for PAs and NPs.

175: Fixing Analysis Paralysis
38:49

When faced with making a decision you may find yourself with the inability to act due to overthinking the available alternatives and possible outcomes. This is commonly known as analysis paralysis. When you get analysis paralysis with finances, what often happens is you are so worried about making a mistake that you don't do anything at all. The more money you have, the worse this can be. When you don't make a choice to invest, you are making a choice. You're making a choice to invest in cash. If that is not the decision that you want to make, then you need to fix your paralysis. Leaving money sitting in an account earning close to nothing is not going to give you the same long term returns as investing in stocks, bonds, and real estate. Fixing analysis paralysis with your finances starts with having a written investment plan. We talk in more detail about that in this episode so you have a plan on what to do with your money.

174: How to Make Seven Figures in Medicine
52:32

In this episode we take a look at the financial life of a physician earning seven figures. I think it will be enlightening because you can compare and contrast your life and think about the things you can do better and the decisions and tradeoffs you've made over your career to be in a different place than our guest. I think there are a lot of lessons to learn from examining the finances of a financially successful physician. Tom and I discuss the role ownership of a practice has played in his financial success as well as employing other physicians and advance practice clinicians. We look at the decisions he has made about his payor mix and procedure mix. We talk about the role luck, talent, and hard work had on his success. Being a good negotiator has been important to his success. Of course when making this much money taxes are discussed and we can't ignore the real difference geographical arbitrage has on physician incomes.  With an income this high all of a sudden you can pay off your debts and reach most of your financial goals in just a few years. Then you face the issues of the wealthy-how much to give, identifying additional spending that will actually make you happier, worrying about estate taxes and asset protection, and trying to not ruin your kids. Though you might not be able to relate with this high of income, I think there are lessons to be learned from delving into the personal finances of a physician this successful.

173: The Dangers of Robinhood
36:37

Robinhood has been taking the investing world by storm the last few months. I thought it would be worth mentioning a few things about Robinhood on the podcast. Robinhood is just a brokerage account. It does have no commissions and allows you to buy fractional shares so it is convenient for people without a lot of money.  It has become a bit of a cultural phenomenon, particularly attracting young people who have never invested before. The problem is that it tends to inculcate people with a trader's mentality, making investing fun and exciting. Everything that good investing is not. There are dangers to Robinhood and this trader's mentality that I discuss in this episode to hopefully help you avoid the perils of day trading.

I also answer reader and listener questions about the finances of starting your own practice, whether it make sense to invest in bonds in a taxable account when you have a mortgage, making estimated tax payments as a W2 employee with 1099 income, what to do with a 401k when you leave your employer, and setting up an account to invest in real estate.

172: Behavioral Finance with Morgan Housel
01:11:48

Our guest this week is one of my favorite writers. Morgan Housel is a partner at The Collaborative Fund and a former columnist at The Motley Fool and The Wall Street Journal.  His passion for finance and investing come through in his writing. I am intensely jealous when I look at his writing because of his talent. He is insightful and easy to read.  He takes complex and important topics and makes them simple to understand. We really dive into behavioral finance topics in this episode. My favorite piece of his was called The Psychology of Money and was the base for his new book coming out September 8th. It is filled with so many pearls that it should be required reading for humans. I pull a few of those pearls out today and discuss them. We talk about some of "the flaws, biases, and causes of bad behavior" he has seen often when people deal with money. Listen to the episode and go pre-order his book. It will almost surely be a best seller and definitely on my recommended reading list.

171: Six Principles of Asset Location
52:22

Asset location is something that is completely missed by a lot of otherwise pretty financially sophisticated people. So I do a deep dive into this topic in today's episode before answering listener questions. Asset location is basically that process of dividing up your investments into your various accounts. Each of them have different issues and are taxed in a different way. This has some bearing on how your investments perform and which investments should be going into which of these various types of accounts.  Unfortunately it is a rather complicated discussion. There are some rules of thumb, but very few absolutes. However if you get this right, it can be worth a million dollars or more. So it is worth looking at, but perhaps not obsessing over. We go over six principles of asset location that you should be aware of in this episode as well as some basic tips that you should follow if you are trying to invest tax efficiently.

Listener questions that we discuss today include the new charitable deduction that came into being with the cares act, paying your spouse for working in your practice, SIPC insurance, how much is too much in assets, UGMA accounts, health insurance premiums, the positives and negatives of having your practice own your life insurance policy, tapping your retirement accounts to invest in real estate, and more.

168: Retirement Accounts versus Real Estate
47:08

Should you pull money out of retirement accounts or skip investing in retirement accounts in order to invest in real estate? No. With this pandemic and change in physician incomes, many have been looking at other sources of income outside their medical practice.  I worry when someone is being told to pull money out of their retirement accounts before they need to spend it in retirement or before required to by the government. I think you need to be a little bit worried anytime someone is recommending against something that is so beneficial to you, like retirement accounts are for doctors.  But I totally understand that real estate investing is really attractive to people. It is a great asset class with a lot of benefits. I never invested in real estate, outside of retirement accounts, until I had maxed out my retirement accounts. I recommend you do the same. In this episode I discuss why with the tax benefits, estate planning benefits and asset protection benefits provided you in retirement account contributions. But I also talk about what your other options are to still invest in real estate if you choose.

167: You Need a Budget
51:31

You need a budget. Even for a high income earner a budget is a necessary tool. The higher your income, the simpler your budget might be. But the potential for positive impact is so much higher with a higher income. You want to be extremely intentional with your money because it can be really powerful. In this episode I interview Jesse Mecham, the founder of You Need a Budget, We talk about the budgeting philosophy behind the software and the four rules of budgeting. Some people might say the budgeting is just common sense, but yet so many people don't seem to be able to figure it out without some kind of help from an app like YNAB. They think that budgeting means dieting and it doesn't. It just means planning. They think budgeting means restriction, about spending less. Jesse tells us budgeting means you should spend guilt less. Enjoy this interview with a successful entrepreneur. Hopefully you will be inspired to get a budget in place!

166: Is Vanguard Losing Its Status?
01:02:20

I love Vanguard. I think it is great to have a real mutual fund/brokerage company that is owned by the investors and run at cost. Their low costs and passive investing has done wonders for the investment industry. However, things are maybe not the same as they were years ago, as far as Vanguard and its competitors. Fidelity and Schwab are now competing with Vanguard on price by offering their index funds at a lower expense ratio. But is that a reason to move your assets away from Vanguard? I don't think so and I talk about why in this episode. But Vanguard has it's issues and I discuss those in this episode too. I think if they're not a little bit more careful, they may see that they really have serious competition for gathering assets.

Direct primary care has been described as revolutionizing primary care in medicine. Our guest in this episode is Dr. Aimee Ostick, a direct primary care physicianhttps://healthandhealingdpc.com/dr-ostick, who describes DPC as the impossible made simple. We talk about what direct primary care medicine is, how to transition a typical primary care practice into a direct primary care practice, and she shares her experience starting and running a DPC practice. I don't know if DPC is quite a revolution yet, but it certainly is the way I would be running my practice if I were a primary care doctor. We discuss the advantages of this model both for the physician and the patient as well as the potential challenges of starting and continuing a DPC practice. I think this model can work for many specialties and would love to see medicine transition to this more transparent way of practicing.

164: Why You Should Max Out Your Retirement Accounts
52:14

Maxing out your retirement accounts will make estate planning easier, give you better asset protection, you'll pay less in taxes, all while your investments grow. A tax protected retirement account provides all this for you, whether it is a tax deferred accounts like a 401(k)s or tax free accounts like Roth 401(k)s and Roth IRAs. Whichever one you choose to use, you are almost always better off than investing in a taxable account. We cover the downsides in this episode but they are not very big in comparison to the upsides of maxing out retirement accounts. These accounts are protected in case of bankruptcy. A 401(k) contribution gives you a tax break up front. You can rebalance within the account without a cost for buying and selling or a tax consequence.  And you will almost surely take that money out of the account at a lower tax rate than you put it in. It is important to understand that a tax deferred retirement account is your biggest tax break. I discuss the different types of retirement accounts in this episode as well as the contributions you can make to each of them. I cannot stress the importance of maxing out your retirement accounts enough.

I also answer listener questions about tax benefits of private real estate funds, why I recommended an independent agent for disability insurance, collecting on both individual and group disability policies,  how long you should continue your disability insurance policy, what to do with your money in residency, asset allocation, and adding small caps to your three fund portfolio.

163: Guide to Physician Disability Insurance
45:48

If you are not financial independent you need to have a disability insurance policy in place. About one out of every five doctors over the course of their career uses a long-term disability policy. If you don't protect your income, what really is protected? It is really foundational to your financial plan. You need to have a policy in place that will replace a large portion of your income if you get disabled so you can continue moving forward with your plan. If you get disabled and you can't actually earn your income, then all of that effort you put into your financial plan goes out the window. I have been collecting disability questions from you for several weeks. I brought Matt Wiggins from Pattern Insurance www.whitecoatinvestor.com/pattern on this episode to help answer questions and give some additional information as an insurance agent. In this episode we talk about the three D's of disability insurance - definitions, discounts, and deadlines, pregnancy and disability insurance, the top insurance companies, how agents are paid, getting out of a bad policy, graded vs level premiums, and what riders may or may not be worth adding to your policy. If you don't have disability insurance you need to listen to this episode. If you aren't sure your policy is adequate, you need to listen. If you have a great policy in place, pass this episode on to a colleague, you probably know someone that needs the push to get this in place.

162: Are Side Gigs Mandatory for Doctors?
24:26

Do doctors need a side gig? No. But it certainly can ease the stress that comes from changes in your physician income beyond your control, like with this pandemic. But living like a resident, saving and investing appropriately can also do that. I think each of us needs to find a balance and realize that if you will carve out a chunk of your income and invest it in some reasonable way, you'll be okay. Doctors make enough money that if they will just manage the money well, they don't need a side income. But it never hurts to have a little bit of side income if that is something that interests you.  Besides discussing the necessity of side gigs in this episode I also answer listener questions about where to put your PSLF side fund, what asset allocation to have in your 457 account, whether my opinion on the use of bonds has changed given recent market events, and should you be interested in a side gig, how to pay yourself from that money.

161: Medicine and Finance in Venezuela
31:56

What is it like to train and practice medicine in Venezuela? Dr. Postalian emailed me a while ago saying, “if you are interested in learning about medicine in a completely crazy and destroyed economy like Venezuela, let me know." See the full show notes here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/ We have talked about medicine and finance in other countries, but they're usually very developed countries. I thought it would be interesting to talk a little bit about growing up and training for medicine and particularly finances in a mixed economy like Venezuela. Besides discussing what it is like to train and practice medicine in Venezuela we talk about hyperinflation. Hyperinflation is devastating to live through, but academically very interesting. Most of us have never lived in a country that experienced any sort of hyperinflation. We discuss how that affected his physician parents, their incomes and savings. How does that experience affect his investing strategy now? Venezuela was doing great, best economy in Latin America, bright future and everything, but it fell apart. Dr. Postalian reminds us not to take anything for granted.

160: What State is Best for Real Estate Investing?
01:12:57

Which states are best for real estate investing? This is like asking which investment is best. You can really only know in retrospect and it'll depend on how things perform over the next 10-30 years. But there are a few things to know that would probably help. I discuss those in this episode as well as list the states that typically make the top of that list. But personally, if I was going to buy a rental property, I think the best place is down the street. It is easy to check on and you can fix the small things yourself without hiring a professional. If you want to invest in real estate outside of your state I think the best way to do that is through syndications or private real estate funds.

I also answer many listener questions in this episode about investing in a Roth or a tax deferred 401(k), what to do if you income goes up, mortgage forbearance, tax loss harvesting, multiple 401 (k) rules, small practice retirement plans, paye vs repaye, mega backdoor Roth contributions, keogh plans, and more.

159: Financial Infidelity
53:05

Financial infidelity can mean many things. I have talked for a long time about the important of being on the same page financially with your spouse. It is so important to be open with each other as far as your finances go. If you are not doing this together, you are almost surely not going to be successful. For this show I have a guest that shares her story of financial infidelity, a spouse who was hiding a gambling addiction. See the full show notes here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/. She wanted to come on the show to share her experience so that others in similar situation would not feel so isolated. A lack of support when faced with a spouse with an addiction can be a big obstacle to getting help. She shares her story along with resources where you can turn for help if you are dealing with addiction in your family. We also discussed what she did to protect herself financially, and in her recovery, so that she can thrive after a worst-case financial scenario like she experienced. I would hope that no other listeners and readers are going through something as difficult as this, but as we discussed in this episode, it is unfortunately more common than we think. Hopefully this show can reach those who could benefit from hearing this doctor's experience.

158: Which Physician Specialty is Best for Retiring Early?
01:00:30

If you want to retire early, which specialty would be best to go into? Let's get one thing straight from the beginning, medicine is not a great option for FIRE in the first place. With the long years in training, you won't even start making significant money until your mid thirties with $300-400K in student loan debt. Traditional FIRE at 30 or 35 like all these FIRE blogs talk about is not possible in that situation. So if your goal is to retire early, medicine is probably not the right place for you. Not to mention if you are a medical student with this question, there is probably an issue with the career you chose. Maybe you should be thinking about getting out of medicine into a career you’ll be happier in long term. But I do answer this question in this episode even so. Shorter residencies do get you to attending income sooner but those also tend to be on the lower end of salaries for physicians. It may not make sense to choose a specialty with a shorter residency if you will be paid significantly less each year afterwards. In this show I share which specialty I think is best for retiring early and why. I also answer listener questions about buying a home while in the military, timing the market, being over leveraged in your real estate investments, disability insurance for military doctors, tax loss harvesting, and more. I also bring on a guest for a few minutes, Ryan Inman from Financial Residency Podcast and Physician Wealth Services to answer a couple of listener questions about rebalancing and investing on the fixed income side. Lots of your questions answered in this episode!

157: Tips for Buying and Selling a Practice
57:45

What should a physician or dentist who wishes to sell their practice know about the process? What mistakes do doctors make in this transaction? What strategies can doctors use at the time of sale? These are the questions we answer during this interview with Kyle Rudduck, CFA, CFP of Constellation Wealth Management. Kyle spent the early years of his career working with consulting firms that focused on the healthcare sector with buyers and sellers of medical practices.  He describes the practice valuation process in this episode and we discuss the range of multiples on EBITDA for a practice, how to minimize the tax cut when you sell, as well as what can be done in the years prior to the sale to increase the value of a practice. He talks about how a sale typically affects employees, and how a sale is different than a merger. We discuss how often doctors regret selling their practice to a hospital, private equity group, or other entity. This can be a huge transaction that you will probably only do once in your lifetime. You want it to go as successfully as possible. This episode will help you navigate the process.

156: What to do with a Dramatically Lower Income
01:06:28

During this pandemic many physicians have seen their income dramatically lowered. What can you do when you are faced with a severe pay cut? We have a guest on this show who is dealing with that right now, having lost 50% of his income. I walk him through what can be done in this situation. Getting on a budget and cutting out any discretionary spending is the place to start. Putting your private loans on forbearance may be necessary. Stop investing. You really need the cash at this point especially if you don't have an emergency fund. The less you spend the longer you can go. Start looking around for other work. Whether you realize it or not, you're in a negotiation right now with your employer. They are trying to decide how little can they pay you and not have you leave but also without them going out of business. Now is the time to be the team player so you are the last guy cut and the first guy hired back. If this is you situation, we get into more details in this episode. so give it a listen and hopefully it will help. We also answer listener questions about investing in real estate during the pandemic, mortgage forbearance, backdoor Roth IRAs, tax loss harvesting, and more.

155: Malpractice Insurance - Above Policy Limit Judgments
58:44

My risk for an above policy limit malpractice judgment is one in 20,000. A listener asked me how I came up with that number as he is in a different specialty and wanted to figure out what his risk is. In this episode I share where to find the numbers to figure out your risk for being sued above the policy limits. But the truth is the vast majority of above policy limit judgments are reduced on appeal to policy limits. If you are worried about an above policy limit judgment realize that it is possible but the chances are pretty low. If this is something you worry about, listening to this episode will help calm that fear. If this isn't something that worries you, we also cover other listener questions in this episode. I address whether to investor or pay off debt during this bear market, shopping for disability insurance, what to do with a 457 from an old employer, starting a side gig, variable withdrawal rates, HSAs, and my experience owning single stocks.

154: Bear Market Action Plan
55:33

You are going to face many bear markets in your investing career. Having an action plan to survive a bear market is critical. I go over an important list of things to do in a bear market and things to not do in a bear market in this episode. Things like don't sell at the lows, stay the course, following your investing plan, and have a cash reserve on hand. You want to be a long term stock market investor. You don't need this money next month, next year, or even in the next decade. Don't act like you do.  All bear markets come to an end and stocks recover eventually. In some respects, this one is a little bit different from other bear markets in that it involves a pandemic. I have a little bit of advice for you specific to this bear market as well in this episode. Your mortality may be a little higher, your income a little lower, and you have more time on your hands. I address what to do for all of those things as well. I think this show will be helpful to you right now. Soon we will be out of this. Maybe it is next month, maybe it is three years from now. I don't know, but this too shall pass.

153: Tax Loss Harvesting
01:00:42

Tax loss harvesting is an important topic, especially right now. If you have been hemorrhaging money in the markets, like most of us have, you may want to do some tax loss harvesting.
This a great way in which you can get Uncle Sam to share the pain of your losses in a taxable or a non-qualified or brokerage accounts. Why is tax loss harvesting useful? You can take up to $3,000 per year in capital losses and offset your ordinary income with that loss. So it lowers your tax bill. Any other losses are placed against your capital gains so you can use them in any limit, not just $3,000 a year, but hundreds of thousands of dollars a year if you want, toward any capital gains taxes you owe. If you don't use all of the losses in one year, you get to carry them forward and you can carry them forward for years and years. Thanks to the recent bear market I now have hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax losses. In this episode I talk about what I can do with those loses. In a lot of ways you are just deferring taxes when you do tax loss harvesting. But there are times when that is really helpful and we get into that in this episode. I also answer a listener question about tax loss harvesting ETFs vs. mutual funds.  If you have a taxable account, this will be a useful episode for you to listen to. Even if you don't I answer other listener questions about growth stock mutual funds, Roth conversions, PSLF, backdoor Roth IRAs, investing in bonds vs stocks, charitable contributions, your asset allocation in a bear market, glide paths, and bond tents.

152: Work Life Balance with Tired Super Heroine
48:54

With medical school classes now having slightly more women than men, more physicians are or will be juggling the challenge of being a professional and a mother. Figuring out the work-life balance can be difficult. Fortunately women physicians have some great role models to look to. One of those is Dr. Barbara Hamilton, also known as Tired Superheroine https://tiredsuperheroine.com/  our guest in this episode. We discuss her experience in the field of interventional radiology as a female physician, a field where women still make up a small percentage. Dr. Hamilton is trying to change that by educating early career doctors on the benefits of choosing specialties currently dominated by male physicians. In this episode we discuss her mentoring work, what it is like to be in a male dominated specialty, negotiating your salary in that environment, finding life balance as a professional and mother, dealing with childcare, and financial empowerment. 6 years out of training she has crossed over into the millionaire status. I am in awe of everything she has accomplished and I think you will be as well after listening to this interview. If you need inspiration that you can do it, this episode will help!

151: How to Pick a Charity
43:31

Choosing which charities to give to is important. It takes just as much effort to give well as it does to earn, save, invest and spend well. We all know that some charities are better than others so how do you choose a charity to give to? What should you look for in that charity? For me, the most important thing is to to begin with choosing a cause that you want to support. Once you know the cause you want to to support, there are resources to identify the best charities for that cause. See the show notes at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/ for links to the resources.  In this episode we discuss how to pick a charity to donate your money to as well as using a donor advised fund and donating shares to charity. Besides charitable giving, we answer listener questions about getting disability and life insurance outside of the United States, asset location, how to balance Roth conversions against ACA subsidies, PLLC vs LLC, resources to use for budgeting, and more.

149: Should I Time the Market?
01:02:08

Should you try to time the market? No! Why? Because it is very hard to do well over the long term and it introduces significant transaction costs to the equation. Beginner investors have trouble staying the course in market downturns but I've noticed that what I call intermediate investors, people who have learned a thing or two about investing, become fearful at market highs and want to sell when the market is at new highs. What they don't realize is that the market is usually at new highs because it is usually going up. You are much better off setting a static asset allocation of a reasonable mix of stocks, bonds and or real estate and rebalancing back to it each year. That way you hold your risk constant, and when the inevitable downturn comes, because it's going to come, you can simply rebalance back to your percentages. That forces you to sell high and buy low because you're selling what did well in the recent past and buying what did poorly in the recent past to get back to your plan percentages, your planned asset allocation.  If you look back at market history, you will see that on average, we see a market correction, a drop of 10% or more in the stock market about once a year. So if you're investing career is 60 years, 30 years while you're working, 30 years in retirement, you're going to see about 60 10% drops in the market. So this is not something that's unusual or something that's rare. This is something you should be planning for.
