Most young Physical Therapists I know are having a tough time managing their finances. Student loans, rent, kids, car payments, and sometimes even mortgages. All of this demonstrates how difficult it is to attain Financial Independence. Luckily for us, there is Dr. Jim Dahle, an Emergency Physician, who has achieved financial independence in his early 40’s. He also runs a popular personal finance blog, The White Coat Investor (www.whitecoatinvestor.com) for physicians, Physical Therapists, and many other health care professionals, providing them with resources and educational information on how to get out of student loan debt, manage your finances, and invest towards financial freedom and a secure (possibly early) retirement.
In this episode, Jim provides a quick financial crash course on the basics of student loan and investment management. This may be the podcast that changes your financial life!
His popular 2014 book, The White Coat Investor: A Doctor's Guide To Personal Finance And Investing, has nearly 900 reviews with an average rating of 4.8 of 5 stars. It is an inspiration to many Physical Therapists and health care providers in need of financial guidance.
Dr. Dahle also has thousands of subscribers on monthly newsletter, offers several personal finance online course series through his site, and runs a Facebook page as well as group for The White Coat Investor with 12,500 plus followers.
