Journal Membership 11/20/20
This is Journal Club 11/20/20! I hold one every week JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering through the articles on the web, I present some that have influenced my life this week. Be safe and stay healthy!
- For some, the appeal of the FIRE movement isn't just about the freedom and flexibility it brings. in the This article from The Darwinian DoctorThe author describes how FIRE enabled him to experience a “transition between identity and self-confidence” – a solution to a self-described mid-life crisis. Be sure to read this for additional motivation.
- If you've entertained the idea of real estate investment but hate the idea of being a landlord, then This article from the prudent plastic surgeon has exactly the solution for you. The author describes a hybrid approach to owning real estate and how he could automate almost anything while still working full time.
- A common question that comes from those who have mortgages on their home is: is it better to repay the mortgage as soon as possible, or invest that money instead? Opinions are very different, but in This post from Financial Success MD, the author makes a thoughtful case for their point of view. If you asked this question yourself, this post may be helpful.
- It goes without saying that, as with any form of investment, real estate investments are not without risk. However, there are ways to mitigate this risk. in the this article from XRAYVSNThe author shares how he was able to reduce the risk – even in the midst of a pandemic.
That's it for this week! Hope the Journal Club 11/20/20 has been helpful to you.
Finally, a little motivation. Have fun and a nice weekend!
