Sean at MedicMaddness.com has been writing a great series of posts, the Money Smart Medic, about his personal journal to take control of his life by taking control of his income and expenses. His journey is a MUST READ for any medic.
I first wrote about my own experience with financial peace and freedom in 2009. Fortunately, we started in a much better place than Sean, but we followed a very similar set of steps. Almost 7 years after we started we still create and follow a monthly budget. We know where and why we spend every penny. We don’t get surprised and we save for things we want.
Get money smart with Sean and I heartily recommend the Total Money Makeover book as an excellent starting point.
