Young Doctors in Debt!

I was just reading some statistics on new doctors and how much debt they are in from all their student loans -- the results are staggering ... 100's of thousands of debt! Now, I understand ... we need doctors in society. Doctors are a very important profession. However, when I think about the stress that doctors have and the administrative BS that they have to deal with when in comes to health insurance issues with their patients and then on top of that the very long hours that they put in and from what I hear from doctors themselves is that sometimes the pay is not all that good either (compared to what they put into it and their debts) ... WOW it's a wonder that there isn't a significant drop in people entering the field of medicine as a Doctor!

I think it is very important for new doctors who are in debt (up to their ears) to have a financial plan to achieve financial independence while they are still young. Now, I am NOT a financial planner or financial advisor but I am on the path to financial independence through my involvement with a Relationship Marketing company that provides health and wellness products and for me, this is a low-risk way to build my financial future so that I can have the freedom to do what I want to, when I want to, however I want to ... you get the idea.

Wouldn't it be great if young doctors who are in debt would get involved with something like this (that is still in line with their profession) and begin to work their way out of debt, reducing the stress that comes along with that and feeling a sense of freedom that will stay with them forever. If they felt this, would it affect how they show up to their patients each day? Would they be able to give more and be more "at ease" when they are treating their patients? Would they have more balance between their personal and business life because they would have the freedom to take off more and spend more time with loved ones (because they didn't need the money)?

If you are a driven, ambitious doctor who loves what they do, but is looking for a solution that will help you to pay off your debt quicker and be on the way to financial independence, the contact me at .
