Fawcett’s Favorites 2-4-19

Every week I run into a few articles that I feel are especially valuable, so each Monday I plan to share some of the best with you, my readers. I hope you find them helpful.

This week’s favorites include the topics of burnout, McMansions, real estate investing, outsourcing for more free time, and the importance of following your net worth.  Happy reading!

Medscape published their National Physician Burnout, Depression & Suicide Report and if you haven’t seen it, it might be an eye opener. I was shocked to see such a high number of doctors who have considered suicide. I wrote a summary of this in My Thoughts on Medscape’s Burnout Report.

If you think your house is your greatest asset, think again. The choice you make for a house purchase can influence your future wealth, mostly for the negative. Read this article by Hillary Hoffower in Business Insider to learn what kind of house will make you a millionaire, after all, what you buy makes a difference.

Have you considered entering the realm of real estate investing but have cold feet? If so, you should read Millennial Money Man’s post Real Estate Investing for Beginners. It is a nice summary on getting into real estate for those of you thinking about kicking the tires. I’m very satisfied with my journey into real estate investing as it is providing enough money to pay for my retirement.

Most of my readers are over achievers just like me. But there comes a time when we need to Stop Trying To Do It All. This week Passive Income MD penned this piece which helped push me a little closer to giving up some more of my tasks. I hope it helps you as well. The state of caught up doesn’t exist, but getting some help can get you a little closer to that dream.

Do you follow your net worth? You should. Smart Money MD tells us how in the article Doctors Net Worth Strategized. I think many doctors don’t want to look. We know it is bad and we don’t want to know how bad. You can master what you measure. If you want to become wealthy and retire comfortably, then start measuring your net worth.

I hope you enjoy these articles as well as I did. I look forward to updating you again next week with a few more articles I found especially interesting.
