414: The Safest Double Digit Returning Investment in History?

When I was fresh out of surgical residency and started to make some money, I started looking for advice on what to do with it.  One of the questions I had was about life insurance. I was a newlywed and had a baby on the way (now she’s in high school by the way). So, […]

411: Heads I Win Tales You Lose: The U.S. Banking System

The challenge with investing is that you can do everything right and still lose. Unfortunately its supposed to be that way otherwise everyone would take the biggest bets possible all the time and always win. That’s just not reality. In good times, it is very hard to anticipate what could happen if the unexpected occurs. […]

407: New Year, New Business?

Wealth Formula Nation, Happy New Year! I have a feeling that 2024 is going to be a good year for us. I think we are going to pick up quality assets at a discount like it’s 2012 and liquidity will come back to the real estate markets. I’m also eager to develop our own investor […]

406: Wealth Without Wall Street

During college, I spent a summer working in a laboratory at the University of Chicago where my biochemistry mentor did his PhD. The lab studied prostate cancer and was the legacy of Charlie Huggins, a surgeon who won the Nobel prize for discovering the testosterone dependence of most prostate cancers. The guy who took over […]

403: The Tax Case in the Supreme Court That You Must Know About

You know what drives me crazy? Politicians talking about how rich Americans need to start paying their “fair share”. First of all, they aren’t really taking about the rich. They are talking about you—the high paid professional. To be clear, if you are making $400K-$800K per year as a W2 wager earner, you’re doing well […]

400: Trying Not to Run Out of Gas in Your Tesla

When I moved to Montecito a few years ago, I was amazed at how many people didn’t seem to work. To be clear, we don’t have a homeless problem out here. We just have a lot of people who own businesses. And it’s not quite true that they don’t work. They just don’t have regular […]
