This week is continuing financial education week. See more information and resources to get financially literate at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/. I do this week every year with book reviews on the blog and podcast to encourage you to get financially literate. I view getting financially literate as reading a handful of books and getting a financial plan in place, whether that involves taking an online course like my Fire Your Financial Advisor https://whitecoatinvestor.teachable.com/p/fire-your-financial-advisor, or meeting with a good financial advisor who gives you good advice at a fair price, or just drafting up your financial plan yourself. I consider that your initial financial education. Your continuing financial education is following a good blog or podcast and reading one good financial book a year. I'm obviously partial to mine, but there are other good physician specific podcasts and blogs out there that you can follow if you like. And I share recommended books on the blog and podcast this week. If you've never read a finance book, I would start with the ones on my recommended list. The ones I review during continuing financial education week aren't always the ideal first book that you should read. Maybe the first book you should read is either the White Coat Investor or the White Coat Investors Financial Bootcamp, but I can't just have people read that every year.
We also offer some sweet deals to give you a little more encouragement to become financially literate. For this week only, if you buy our Fire Your Financial Advisor online course, we're going to give you the online version of the 2018 Physician Wellness and Financial Literacy Conference for free. That is basically an $800 value for just $499. This offer is good through Monday, December 2nd at midnight.
This podcast was sponsored by Pattern Financial Consultancy https://whitecoatinvestor.com/pattern . Matt Wiggins is an experienced specialist in disability and life insurance for physicians. I’ve sat down with Matt, face to face, and talked about doctors and insurance. He knows what he is talking about and can get you a high quality disability insurance policy that you can trust to deliver should the worst happen. Doctors get disabled all the time. Don’t think it cannot happen to you. If you don’t have a disability insurance policy now, or just need a second opinion on whether or not your current one is still right for you, contact Matt today at https://whitecoatinvestor.com/pattern.
