The Sunday Best (5/1/2014)

Happy May Day! Check out the new homepage layout if you get a chance. I’d love to hear what you think.

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 at least some of these elements.

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

Dr. Amanda Liu, a.k.a. Dr. Wise Money shows us she’s no miser despite her impressive savings rate and debt paydown during residency in Living Richly Today: A More Relatable Dr. Wise Money.

Joe Udo @ contemplates a potential reality in maybe thirty to fifty years for the early retiree in Long-term Care Options for Early Retirees.

In an oldie but goodie, J. Money @ helps us answer the payoff debt versus save & invest question in a sensible way, while expressing his affection for Britney Spears in My Answer to All Financial Debates.

Chief Resident Ahmad Yousaf, MD @ NEJM Journal Watch discusses the Costs of Being a Doctor in a piece that was featured on KevinMD, retitled The absurd cost of becoming a doctor.

A millenial NYC accountant tells us how he really feels in I’m Tired of Hearing How Bad Millennials Have It @ I think a few seasoned docs may be similarly tired of hearing how bad today’s residents have it.

Have a great week!

    Im not a physician but like reading your’s and The White Coat blogs. A lot of good information/ viewpoints and inspiration. Look forward to them every week. Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you, Arrgo! Everyone is welcome here. WCI is a great source of information. I like to think of PoF as being complementary and perhaps offering a slightly different viewpoint on some issues, but we do have a lot in common.
