On this episode of the Dentist Money™ Show, Reese and Ryan examine why too many dentists concentrate on investments that pull them away from their core money-making machine: their practice.
You paid a huge price for a dental degree and the opportunity to run a very lucrative business. But are you shortchanging your potential by letting your investment attention wander elsewhere?
To learn why your practice holds the greatest possibility for net worth growth.
Ryan takes the mic on this Dentist Money™ podcast. His guest is David Harris, founder of Prosperident, a forensic investigation firm that specializes in investigating, and protecting dentists from, embezzlement. If you think embezzlement won’t happen to you, statistics show it’s highly likely to occur during your career. Ryan and David discuss what leads people to embezzle; they profile what a typical embezzler might look like, and they give you warning signs that might tip you off that something is awry.
Vanguard founder, John Bogle, is known for giving individual investors access to the market through low-cost index funds. The approach bypassed unnecessary management fees and allowed people to “buy the market” using diversified funds. To this day, John’s following of “Bogleheads” remains energized by his philosophy and often steers other investors toward a self-directed path. And yet, recent Vanguard studies show how guidance from an investment advisor can lead to significantly better returns. So what’s the right strategy for you? In this episode of Dentist Money™, Reese and Ryan discuss common misconceptions about Vanguard’s position, when it makes sense to hire an advisor, and the type of advice worth paying for.
