You’re ready to take control of your finances, but you don’t want to waste time figuring out what to read and where. WCI created this comprehensive online course to teach you all the nuts and bolts of personal finance culminating in teaching you to create your own financial plan. The course is $499 and goes on sale occasionally. There is a 7 day risk free period.
On March 1-3, 2018, 300 physicians, dentists, and other high income professionals met in Park City, Utah for the first-ever Physician Wellness and Financial Literacy Conference. It was a wonderful time with receptions, informal dinners, and skiing, but it also included 12 hours of lectures, a panel of physician financial bloggers, and a book signing event.
The lectures and blogger panel were recorded and compiled with slides into a virtual online course, which is now made available to you to watch on any device at any time convenient to you without requiring expensive or inconvenient travel to Park City.

If you’re just getting started on your finances, I highly recommend opening an account with Personal Capital. It’s free and is the best way to see all of your investment accounts in one place. See how your investments are doing against the S&P 500 and play with retirement scenarios. This is how I view and track my investments.
Tired of remembering passwords? Are you using the same password for all of your websites? I use LastPass to store all of my passwords and to generate secure passwords. With LastPass Family you can store passwords for the whole family.
You can also designate an emergency contact in case. If you use a personal or virtual assistant you can share passwords via LastPass so you never have to actually share the password. You can revoke access easily as well.
LastPass can also store important files securely. I use this in conjunction with the ICE binder below.
Chelsea of Smart Money Mama’s developed this In Case of Emergency Binder (ICE) for her own family to get organized in the event of, well, an emergency. Emergencies include not only death, but a natural disaster or severe illness.
Ready to totally organize your life and business? FINCON friends turned me onto Asana to organize Wealthy Mom MD and I’m not sure how I functioned without it! It is the ultimate project manager and brainstorming tool. You can assign tasks to collaborators and you can easily track and see the progress of each task. I also use it to organize my personal life as well after a failed attempt at bullet journaling.
