On Finding PHYSICIAN FOCUSED Financial Advice?

OVER HEARD IN THE DOCTOR’S LOUNGE

Michigan Association of Osteopathic Family Physicians ...

The financial planner is a like juggler, trying to keep a variety of balls simultaneously in the air.  Each aspect of practice becomes critical, just as action is needed. 

Some of the activities of operating a successful financial planning practice generally attract more attention than others, such as marketing and advertising, closing engagements, and office administration.  Because product review, selection and implementation are often related to advisor compensation, they attract a great deal of the financial juggler’s concentration. 

But, the heart of financial planning, niche advice, often receives little attention.  Not because it is unimportant, it just doesn’t seem immediately and predictably urgent.  Here, that ball does not seem to be dropping so rapidly. 

However, retaining clients and receiving referrals from other professionals is very dependent on the quality of the advice delivered.  And, the first line of protection from practitioner liability exposure is to not deliver incorrect or incomplete advice. 

But, where does the financial advisor turn for ideas and organized research in the healthcare sector?

There are varying opinions on how much of your total income should go toward savings and retirement goals each month. Moreover, the answer is likely to vary, depending on your full financial profile.

But if you’re looking for some basic KISS guidelines, consider applying the 50-30-20 rule, a budgeting method that allocates 50% of your income to essentials, like rent and bills, 30% to discretionary spending and 20% to savings.

Image shows a pie chart broken up into 50%, 30%, and 20%. Title reads: "The 50/30/20 Budgeting Rule." Under 50% says "Needs: groceries, housing, utilities, health insurance, car payment." Under 30% reads: "Wants: shopping dining out, hobbies." Under 20% says "Savings"

Your thoughts are appreciated.
