I’m an entrepreneur, physician and financial blogger and I absolutely love all things personal finance. I can’t stop talking about it and I’ve given all of my family and friends advice on it whether they liked it or not, that they eventually said - enough, go write it on a blog or something. So here I am!

When I was younger, growing wealth and finances had never crossed my mind because I was just a broke college/grad student and didn't feel comfortable talking about money (which shouldn't be the case because we can all contribute to a RothIRA anytime). But I've learned taking control of your finances is actually empowering, the true path to freedom to live our ideal lives, and to create generational wealth.

My posts focus on real ways to actually save and invest, well-researched financial topics on investing and leverage, fun topics I want to know about but don't find anywhere else on the web, and much more.

I’m so glad you are visiting, I feel honored, and I hope I can give you some great insight on personal finance. Happy Planning!
