Regular readers and listeners will know that I have been investing more and more in real estate the last few years. I am not a big fan of owning direct real estate and all the hassle that goes with that. But real estate can be a great addition to your portfolio. Most of the private real estate funds require an initial investment of $250K+. That is not feasible for most physicians, not to mention people typically want to dip their foot into real estate funds with a smaller amount of money. The big value of access funds is they provide you an opportunity to invest in private real estate by providing access at a decreased minimum amount. For those interested in investing in real estate this can be a great oppoortunity.

As you become more financially literate, you realize all the financial mistakes that you were making. Some of those mistakes are more challenging to fix than others. This is particularly true within your taxable accounts. In this episode we help a couple of readers solve their financial mistakes by getting out of poor investments, like expensive mutual funds and individual stocks. We talk about whether it is worth it and what it will cost you and ways to lower that cost. You can view the full show notes and transcription here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/classic-blog/ We play a bit of catch up with listener speakpipe questions (you can record your questions here https://www.speakpipe.com/whitecoatinvestor). Questions in this episode include: the 199 deduction for S Corps, contract negotiation from the employer side, disability insurance from Principal, strategies to avoid exit taxes if leaving the USA, value vs growth funds, joining a private equity group, recharacterizing Roth IRA contributions, Roth IRAs for your children, and paying down your mortgage as a PSLF side fund.
This podcast sponsor is Earnest, https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/earnest , one of the student loan refinancing companies. Save money on your student loans by refinancing with Earnest. Choose custom terms to fit your budget, like pricing your exact monthly payment, or selecting fixed or variable rates. Earnest precision pricing matches your custom term with a custom interest rate, saving you even more money when refinancing. You won't be passed off to a third party servicer, nor penalized for making payments early. Your family will always be protected with loan forgiveness in cases of death or dismemberment. The minimum amount to refinance is $5,000 and the maximum is $500,000. The chances of you being outside those two limits is pretty low. If you sign up to refinance your loans and complete a refinance, you will get $500 cash back. I would encourage you to take that $500, put it towards your loans, and pay them down a little bit faster.

Some had six figure student loan debt upon leaving training. None received a big inheritance. Some are business owners. Most invest in real estate. All of them had a plan. You need a plan in order to become a millionaire. Listen to this episode to learn how to create your plan, how these doctors became millionaires, and how you can too.
