ER Doc Advisor - Financial Planning & Taxes for Emergency Physicians

EP 99: Are You Clear On Your Vision For Retirement?

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. That couldn’t be truer when it comes to imagining your retirement. ER Docs get so busy and caught up in the day-to-day grind that it can be difficult to find time to envision a reality, perhaps 10, 20, or 30 years away. But thinking about it and discussing it can actually provide comfort and motivation in the present.

On today’s episode, we’ll evaluate what “retirement” or “financial independence” means for different people and discuss why having a plan, even if that plan changes over time, is the best way to buffer yourself against all future uncertainties.

Topics Discussed:     
  • The best way to protect yourself from future financial uncertainties.
  • The importance of making a plan, even if it may change.
  • How to ensure you are taking advantage of the time you have for saving.
  • The benefit of mapping out your retirement.
  • Why you need to be able to pivot in life.
