Doctors Required For Financial Prescriptions

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. 🙂

Doctor Money

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 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.


Some People Are Making More Money than You & Me Because…

There is not always an apparent rhyme and reason to the pay scale attached to certain jobs. You may become fire fighter because it seems glamorous and profitable, only to learn that a beach lifeguard who appears to be more of a beach guy makes almost twice of what you do!! Firefighters may be required to log volunteer hours and do it for the joy and prestige, whereas lifeguards on certain beaches with regular high waves, rip tides, and white water make local fires seem infrequent and manageable.

Some jobs that require creativity and artistry are pegged as low payers, when in reality the average wine steward, makes slightly more than an account manager. Pairing wine with meals may take as much logic and skill as crunching numbers and analyzing profits and loss, or one may be simply valued over the other for unfathomable reasons.

So before you invest time and money in educating yourself, you should explore the realities of a professional field in order to determine the return on your investment. Of course, factors beyond pay come into play here, and it is up to you to weigh them out. 

Laying the groundwork for profit means exploring a number of factors that are not immediately obvious, whether you are choosing a profession or investing the money you earn from that profession.

Surprisingly these people make more money than you!
