213 – Confessions of a Recovering Physician
“Winning is hard when you’re not sure what the goal is.” — Doc G
What’s good everyone?
Have the thought of leaving medicine ever crossed your mind? I mean who hasn’t daydreamed about quitting their job to pursue their passion?
Maybe you thought that being a physician is your calling but— what if this calling burns you out or doesn’t make you happy anymore? Would you still stay?
In today’s episode, I got Doc G to confess with us why he left his full-time medical practice and pursued a path that really brought him joy. Doc G is a former high earning physician who is behind the medical blog, DiverseFI and the host of Earn & Invest Podcast (Formerly What’s Up Next).
Doc G and I are going to discuss his financial freedom journey and how he put himself in a place where he can retire when he wants, do what he wants, and enjoy all of it!
These are the five main things we discussed in this episode:
- Doc G shares his early experience with medical blogging and how he started DiverseFI
- Shattered expectations and moving away from being a physician
- The anxiety of knowing and feeling like that what you do isn’t for you anymore
- Discovering your real passion, making a living out of it, and redefining success in your own terms
- How he answers #imnotjustadoc
Doc G was an internal medicine physician when he discovered the personal finance community through a book called The White Coat Investor. Since then he has left clinical practice to pursue his passion for deep conversations about money and life.

“Having the Darkos describe their journey provided a solace that no sort of debt counseling would ever bring about. Anyways, this show is consistent in the fact that it always delivers gems and enlightens listeners. I’ve shared the podcast with my classmates. Please keep up the great work!”
