The Sunday Best (06/25/2023)

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 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 of course, investing.

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

  1. Just wanted to say a quick thank you to Physician on FIRE as well as many of the other authors that have motivated me. I was able to retire at age 59 , just two months ago. Although not an “early ” age, My Fat FIRE cash flow should be sufficient for a fun retirement. Many of my colleagues were ” shocked” that this was financially possible. On my last surgical case my Anesthesiologist was a young Doc who asked to be in my room to discuss my strategies. We got along well and I know he reads this website often. He certainly is on his way to an early retirement.
    Thank you for putting this information out there and helping everyone stay motivated.

    • Congratulations on achieving freedom and retiring from paid work. Inspirational! Please consider sharing in the post fire notes to help those of us still in the trenches. Late starter here but hoping to reach that mountain top eventually! Kudos again and best best wishes on retirement!
