Words from Dr. Latifat:  Five years ago, I realized I was broke, overwhelmed, and living paycheck to paycheck. I knew zero about money and was too embarrassed to tell anyone. I knew that in order to practice medicine on my terms, I needed to work on my finances. I realized that in order to provide the kind of home and lifestyle we wanted for our kids and build generation wealth, something had to change. By learning the 20% of personal finance that I needed to win 80% of my personal finance, I was able to pay off my student loans within 2 years. After learning and investing in vehicles such as the stock market, diversified real estate investments, we are well on our way to early financial independence.
