In My Humble Opinion recently put me onto The White Coat Investor, a blog written by an emergency room physician with a book by the same name available at Amazon. He mentions on his site that he is a “practicing, full-time, board-certified emergency physician just a few years out of residency. Although I’ve always been interested in personal finance and investing, I really started diving into the field as a resident when I finally got sick of financial professionals ripping me off. In fact, most of my first few encounters with financial professionals ended badly for me.” I gather the book is as well written as the blog with helpful information for physicians about earning and investing. In My Humble Opinion writes: “
As physicians go, I feel like a relatively savvy businessperson. Although I don’t talk about it on this website, I have owned and run a number of small businesses and been a landlord for years. So when James Dahle sent me a copy of his book, The White Coat Investor, A Doctor’s Guide to Personal Finance and Investing, I was both curious and skeptical. What was the guy going to teach me?
Before diving in, I took a few moments to glance at his blog. My few moments turned into hours. The site is a trove of important and often perplexing subjects that physicians (as well as other small business people) face. Ever contemplated these issues before:
To buy or rent property?
What defines good disability insurance?
Term or whole life?
These, as well as many other topics, are covered in a concise and digestible manner. I urge you to take a look.”
