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 frugality, tax issues, travel, physician 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!

Trusts & Estate Planning: Mapping Strategies for the Past, Present & Future with Prolific Solutions

May 16, 2024 at 5:30PM ET / 2:30PM PT

Physicians are not your average working professional. In addition to their unique lifestyle and career lifecycle, they see firsthand the deleterious effects and difficult decisions families have to make when a patient is struggling to recover.

Topics such as wills, trusts, estate planning, POAs/HCPs and finances inevitably become part of the conversation.

But while most physicians feel estate planning is simply reserved for ultra wealthy individuals and during the time of their demise, this could not be farther from the truth.
