This doc is a 28 year Air Force general surgeon who retired in the fall of 2020. He tells us about his journey in the military as well as talks about his decision to retire. He wants to be sure that people know that career military docs can have a great retirement and says the pension that comes from the military is amazing. Their biggest challenge is actually ramping up their spending. Not long after retiring this doc and his wife hiked the entire Appalachian Trail together. A total of 2200 miles over 7 months. His career and his adventuring were inspiring to us!

Our interviewees today are telling us about opening their first franchise. After listening to WCI podcast episode 267 about non-food franchising they decided to give it a try! This couple did tons of due diligence and spent a great deal of timing getting educated about how this business would run and they are finally off to the races. We think you will find their story super inspiring. This debt averse couple waited to do this until they had enough cash to pay for the whole project up front. Their advice to you is to be at a place in your financial life that if it doesn't work out it won't ruin you financially. That way this process can be fun instead of scary. Want to listen to the episode that inspired them? Check it out here: https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/non-food-franchising-267/

Dr. Dahle answers questions about his families' plan for inheritance for their kids and discusses which funds to choose for your kids Roth IRAs.

This cardiologist became a millionaire just 6 years out of training. This physician couple worked hard to pay their debt off and start saving. They have learned that while they want to be set up for a comfortable retirement, they also are not trying to FIRE. They want to save responsibly while still spending money now and making the most of life right now with their kids. His advice to you is to be persistent and consistent and to be patient. If you stick to your plan you will be successful! 

Dr. Dahle also gives an intro to HSA accounts, what it means to have triple tax protection, and why he thinks HSAs are incredibly awesome. Want to learn more about HSA accounts? Check out this post: https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/health-savings-account/ 

Getting quality disability and life insurance should be the first financial chore for a doctor to complete. Most docs don't have the ideal policy for their gender, specialty, state, or health status and 1 in 7 doctors get disabled at some point during their career. Because these policies can only be purchased through brokers, we have put together a list of vetted agents who are experienced with working with the specific needs of medical professionals and who have your best interest at heart.

If you have questions about insurance and what kind of policies would be the best fit for you, check out our insurance recommended list at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/insurance/ and feel the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have the optimal policy in place.

You can do this and The White Coat Investor can help.

This sleep medicine doc paid off his mortgage in only 2 years! He learned quickly that he does not like being in debt and first tackled $280,000 of student loans in less than 3 years out of residency. His next goal was to save up for a down payment, then after buying the house paid down the mortgage in an incredibly fast time period. He said he likes having a goal that he can pour his effort and money into. It is also no surprise that he has nearly reached millionaire status. His next big goal is to buy some real estate to help residents in his area have both an affordable place to live, but also to help mentor them as they work towards completing their training.
