About Crispy Doc: I'm a financially independent emergency physician in my mid-40s, married with kids, living in coastal California.
My story of mid-career burnout in medicine was transformed by a financial literacy conversion experience. I pivoted from helpless to in control. I learned to manage my investments. I saved aggressively using smart strategies tailored to high-income professionals.
I write for newbie physicians and other high-income professionals who are motivated but anxious about tackling their finances. I want to provide you blueprints for financial success while helping you avoid the mistakes I made.
I also write for mid-career physicians at a significant personal crossroads (parenthood, burnout, divorce) ready to implement drastic changes that realign values with time. I want to share with you the tools that let me change the axis my life revolved around.
Year Started: 2016
