The Sunday Best (4/24/2016)

The Sunday Best is a collection of a handful of posts I share with you, the reader, 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 at least some of these elements.

  1. Glad I found my way to your site. New to blogging.
    Enjoyed the content on the smarter dollar link. Reminded me to write about our experiences with non-traded REITs in an upcoming post

    • Sounds like something I’d be interested in reading. My REIT exposure is via Vanguard’s index fund.

      I’m fairly new to blogging as well. I believe the first post went live about 100 days ago. I’m enjoying the heck out of it!
