From time to time, we vet the businesses and experts we love working with. And because you are at the heart of our show, we thought it was fair to provide you with a recommended list of resources we’d go to bat for. Feel free to look through the list. If you found a good fit, we want to know about it.

Financial Residency: Create Your Financial Plan Without The Long Hours Or Sleepless Nights

Ever wonder what it would take to design the life you want on your own terms? What’s missing is a bit of perseverance, elbow grease, and *cough, cough*… a financial plan. But Ryan, it takes thousands of dollars to hire a financial planner to pull together the numbers, charts, and that dreaded b-word! Well, it does for some, but you can do it for under $25 bucks. My wife, Taylor, a pediatric pulmonologist, will show you how at the cost of a book. Grab a copy on Amazon and watch your ideal life come to life before your own eyes.

Want to be super cool? Be sure to leave a verified purchase review to help other physicians live the life of their dreams too.

Recommended Resources

Physician Financial Services

A recommended resource by Financial Residency is Physician Financial Services Owned by Larry B. Keller

Lawrence B. Keller, CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®, RHU®, LUTCF has been in the insurance and financial services industry since 1990. Unlike medicine, which has a standardized path that physicians must take to gain the education, training and experience requirements necessary to obtain board certification, the insurance and financial services industry does not.

Working with an agent that is familiar with the underwriting of both disability and life insurance policies for physicians can all but guarantee a smooth underwriting process in which the desired outcome is likely.

While he might not be a doctor’s first phone call regarding their insurance needs, he is often their last.


Not everyone should refinance their student debt, but if you already know that you should, you need to check your rates at Credible. They are an industry leader in providing quotes for best rates on federal and private student debt. After analyzing tens of millions of dollars in student loan debt for clients, I have known Credible to be the best when it comes to comparing the best rates as well as customer service. So if you’re looking for the best place to compare options in 2 minutes with no credit check, I recommend Credible.
