The Sunday Best (5/29/2016)

Sunday Best

The Sunday Best is a collection of a handful of posts I share with you each week. With so many informative and inspirational writers out there, I have no trouble coming up with 5 worthwhile reads each week.

Most posts will be from recent weeks, written by physicians, and related to personal finance, but expect to find a post or two that are lacking some or all of these elements.

Presenting, in no particular order, this week’s Sunday Best:

Strive to be abnormal, says Mr. 1500 @ Sage advice from an atypical millionaire in this Random Rant: Normal Sucks.

Tanya Feke, MD takes issue with the blame game transpiring as the opioid epidemic has become mainstream news. She’d like to the finger pointing to stop or be redirected, as she explains well @ in this piece titled American Detox.

In an oldie but goodie, Cait Flanders from Canada details The Year I Embraced Minimalism and Completed a Year Long Shopping Ban.

Mike Piper, The Oblivious Investor, gives his rationale for placing bonds in tax-deferred accounts when answering the question, Should I Put Stocks in My Roth IRA and Bonds in My Traditional IRA?

Amanda Liu, MD a.k.a. DrWiseMoney knows her worth as a tutor. It’s $388 per hour (no, not a typo, it’s three hundred and eighty-eight dollars per hour). Read how she came to that figure in her recent post Know Thy Worth & Be Thy Boss.

Have a great week!

  • dear PoF, thank you for including my post.

    Your time is worth way more than $388/hr, considering your knowledge, expertise, experience, and wisdom 🙂 The truth is that no finite amount of money is truly worth our time & time is indeed the most precious & irrecoverable resource we could offer to one another and ourselves.

    All the time that you mentor and advise me, you could instead use to build million dollar empire for yourself. Yet out of the charity of your heart, you extended a helping hand.

    Perhaps to you, it’s because you find it more rewarding to help others for free than generating income with every limited hours of your life.

    You inspire me to pass it forward. Although i’ve been working 14-hour days, i did find time to tutor a colleague (PGY4) for free last Friday. thanks again for all your guidance and support!
