If anyone ever claimed that they have never visited a doctor, then it would be hard to believe. And to be honest, I have always looked upto doctors not because they help us stay healthy, but because they have an ever-increasing customer base. 🙂
If any doctors are reading this post, I request them not to get me wrong here.
What I mean is that like all essential commodities (oil, power, etc)….doctors are also always in demand. Irrespective of whether the economy is going up or down.
Luckily for us, they are not listed on exchanges. 🙂
And this thought of having an increasing customer base, leads me to believe that doctors almost always, are much better off than any other class of professionals, when it comes to having a solid, sustainable and predictable income stream. Though a doctor’s income depends primarily on number of patients he treats, it is safe to assume that there is never a shortage of patients.
Sometime back, I remember someone making a remark that ‘”There are no Poor Doctors.”
And this remark does seem to make a lot of sense.
And honestly speaking, even I am curious to know how doctors manage their finances. With a stable, reliable and almost-guaranteed-for-life flow of increasing income, I want to know the thought process which doctors use to take financial decisions. Where do they invest? Why do they invest? How much risk do they take…etc?
And since I don’t know many doctors who can answer these questions, I invite readers to help me get answers. It would be great if some of you (doctors or their friends / relatives) could share your thoughts with me. You can mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do a post sharing your thoughts with everyone. In case you do not want to disclose your identity, then I can assure you that it will be protected while publishing your thoughts.
