Follow your passion, even if it’s risky.

With regard to financial and personal/professional satisfaction

After taking on the risk of two residencies in Primary Care/Family Medicine and then Internal Medicine, I initially felt it would negatively impact the return over my professional journey. But I was given a greater return than I expected. Following my passion has paid off, helped me feel more competently trained and built a lifelong network of colleagues/ friends.

Signing bonus. What to do?

I just received a $50K signing bonus; it’s more money than I’ve ever had and I don’t have a clue what to do with it? I will be making $250K a year and my wife and I would like to buy a home and to raise a family in. But, I have a whopping $400,000 in student loan debt. Who do I turn to for advice? Help!
