Host, Dr. James Dahle, is a practicing emergency physician and founder of the White Coat Investor Blog. Like the blog, the White Coat Investor Podcast, is dedicated to educating medical students, residents, physicians, dentists, and similar high-income professionals about personal finance and building wealth, so they can ultimately be their own financial advisor—or, at least know enough to not get ripped off by a financial advisor! We tackle the hard topics like the best ways to pay off student loans, how to create your own personal financial plan, retirement planning, how to save money, investing in real estate, side hustles, and how everyone can be a millionaire by living WCI principles.

"As a young attending who has put into effect the many themes presented by the WCI, how would you recommend I go about helping my parents get into a better financial situation?" This is the main listener question I answer in this week's episode. Tread lightly if you are thinking about taking on the role of financial advisor to your parents. I explain many things you should think about before doing this. If you found this podcast useful visit our blog at http://whitecoatinvestor.com/ for more personal finance and investing information.

This episode is sponsored by another podcast. The Financial Residency podcast is dedicated to helping physicians become better financially equipped and more confident in making the right money decisions. The host, Ryan Inman, is a fee-only financial planner who is married to a US Navy pediatric pulmonologist. Ryan's firm, Physician Wealth Services, is a White Coat Investor recommended advisor. I recently went on his show to discuss the trade-offs between paying off medical school debt or choosing to invest. It’s a great resource to learn about the most popular finance question we seem to get on a regular basis; and, plus, it’s on an awesome show. So, go find Financial Residency in the same podcast player you listen to me in, download the show he and I did together, and use it as a guide to help you with your decision to pay down debt or invest.

It is a tradition at The White Coat Investor to update the members of our community on the progress made in the last year. As usual, last year was our best year ever in nearly every respect. Thanks to all of you who have even the tiniest amount of responsibility for that. If you told even one person about the site or book or podcast, answered one question on the forum or Facebook group, or used the site to find a financial service provider you needed, THANK YOU. In this episode I talk about the state of the podcast in terms of the three missions of The White Coat Investor: Help those who wear the white coat (and other high-income professionals) get a “fair shake” on Wall Street Feed my entrepreneurial spirit Connect high-income professionals with the relatively few “good guys” in the financial services industry.

This episode is brought to you by 37th Parallel Properties. As you know, I’m primarily an index mutual fund guy. But there’s a strong body of evidence supporting alternative investments – especially commercial multifamily real estate. Multifamily real estate can provide non-correlated equity growth and tax-advantaged income. For those reasons and many more, I hold multifamily real estate investments in my portfolio. I’ve invested with 37th Parallel Properties as has several members of the White Coat Investor community. With over $425M in profitable multifamily transactions, they’ve made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies the past three years running. I’ve been pleased with 37th Parallel’s results and transparent reporting and I also really like their commitment to educate their investors. You can learn more about them and get a very informative introduction to how commercial multifamily investing works via their special report Evidence Based Investing. Check out 37parallel.com/ebi.

In this episode I speak with Crispy Doc, a financially independent emergency physician in his mid-40s, married with kids, living in coastal California. We discuss his mid-career burnout and how it was transformed by financial literacy. He learned to manage his investments. He saved aggressively using smart strategies tailored to high-income professionals. As financial independence came he found that instead of wanting out of medicine he became more satisfied in his career.

I’m often asked “where should I start with the podcasts.” I thought for our first podcast of 2019 that I’d lay out the WCI philosophy, so if someone asks “what podcast should I start with?” you can confidently say #87. In this episode I discuss the 12 Steps of the WCI philosophy. Listening to this episode will help people to understand the basics of personal finance and investing for high income earners.

This episode is sponsored by Larry Keller. Larry is an independent insurance agent who works almost exclusively with physicians. He has been a member of the WCI community for years, writing guest posts, "overcontributing" to the scholarship fund, and participating in the comments sections, and has been a long-term advertiser on the site. He has been thoroughly vetted by me and hundreds of WCI readers who have used him to put their long-term disability and term life insurance in place. He can also help you review your insurance coverage or give you a second opinion on a policy you have been offered. I cannot recommend him any more highly for your needs. If you're in the market for disability or term life insurance, or think that maybe you should be, contact Larry at lkeller@physicianfinancialservices.com or by phone at 800-481-6447.
