I created this blog to enlighten, educate, and entertain fellow physicians and other people who may have similar circumstances (high-income, late start, educational debt, etc…). My aim is to help those who want to help themselves and share some unique insights from the perspective of a practicing physician. I hope to leave you informed and inspired to look at life a little differently than you might have before.

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.

Today I am financially independent, I run a cool little company (PopUp Business School) with a team of 12, changing the way entrepreneurship is taught globally and I spend my time travelling around the world working with some of the coolest people. Life wasn't always this way! At school I was the shyest kid you could meet, I struggled talking to strangers, I was paralysed by fear approaching girls, making phone calls or anything else. My family went from wealthy to £millions in debt and we had to do car boot sales (yard sales) at the weekend to raise the money to buy food. So what changed? This is what I want to share with you and it is going to be in 3 main parts: entrepreneurship, financial independence, and making dreams come true.
