PoF: Sunday Best

The Sunday Best is a collection of articles I’ve curated from the furthest reaches of the internet for your reading pleasure.

Every week, I scan hundreds of headlines, read dozens of posts, and bring you the best of the best to save you time and mental energy.

Financial Independence (FI) is a primary focus, but it’s an awfully broad topic. I tend to approach FI and early retirement from a fatFIRE perspective and through the lens of a physician, so I expect to see those biases in the selected articles.

Related topics that have become recurrent themes include early retirement, selective frugalitytax issuestravelphysician issues, and investing.

For more great articles, take a peek at The Sunday Best Archives. Now let’s get to the best… The Sunday Best!
