Are you familiar with the fees associated with investing in mutual funds? Check out this succinct article from Investopedia regarding Expense Ratios to get you started.

A measure of what it costs an investment company to operate a mutual fund. An expense ratio is determined through an annual calculation, where a fund's operating expenses are divided by the average dollar value of its assets under management. Operating expenses are taken out of a fund's assets and l...

Excited to be heading down to Columbus tonight to speak at the The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy Alumni Association Financial Wellness Workshop! We are going to be talking about 5 Strategies to Become a Seven Figure Pharmacist.

I hope you will find this article by Justin Cole from Cedarville University School of Pharmacy as inspiring as I did!

"In the end, we moved to a wonderful home that was less than half the size and cost of our previous home. I did not fully realize the impact that home ownership had on our overall financial picture until our move. Through the process, we have learned a lot about ourselves and experienced many unexpected freedoms through downsizing."

Over the previous 10 years, he served in variou...

Fascinating. Get ready for disruption and innovation to happen in the grocery industry whether you like it or not.

The other potential story line to watch here is how Amazon may use this acquisition to further their vision for getting into the pharmacy business. Lauren Castle mentioned this last week when the news broke and I think she is spot on.

“Once Amazon is a player in the industry, anything can go,” said Joe Agnese, senior food retailing analyst at CFRA. “The big threat is what else they can do. Now that they have a retail presence with (more than) 400 stores, long-term they can expand on that threat. They can (bring) pricing pressure. They could bring down prices and everyone would have to match them or lose share."

By buying Whole Foods, Amazon brings firepower to an industry plagued by thin profit margins. It could hurt food manufacturers and producers, delivery services, supermarket chains, mass sellers and more.

More than half surveyed believe their advisor must legally act in their best interest. It isn't the case, unfortunately!

Why the fiduciary standard is more important for protecting investors than The Fiduciary Rule and how they are different.|By Next Avenue

Thank you Alex Barker for working with me as Tim Church and I were finishing up the writing for Seven Figure Pharmacist! You brought a unique and valuable perspective to the table and inspired me to stay on track to get the work done.

He started talking to lots of pharmacists and found out that, despite earning a six-figure income, many needed help managing their finances. He consistently heard pharmacists say, “I am living paycheck to paycheck.”

A thought provoking and humorous read for your Wednesday morning. It is always good to learn and read from those that have similar and dissenting opinions.

My favorite response is from Phil Huber: Fidget spinners.

Bitcoin, a FAANG stock — and the infatuation with passive investing.

This is a fantastic read! Please take 5 minutes to do so and then share with all your friends and colleagues that say 'my guy' takes care of my investments. That is usually code word for I'm getting hosed but don't realize it.

Tim Church, PharmD, BCACP, CDE and I have dedicated a whole chapter (15) in Seven Figure Pharmacist ( to this incredibly important topic.

As I mentioned the other day, this is why I'm pumped to be partnering with Tim Baker, CFP from Script Financial for the Your Financial Pharmacist podcast coming in July. He is one of the few (<2% of all advisors according to Tony Robbins in Unshakable) doing the business the right way.

Despite claims otherwise, the new much ballyhooed Department of Labor fiduciary rule won’t protect you from financial advisers who put themselves first. But you can, easier than you think.

A good overview of the fiduciary standard and what has been going on during the transition from the Obama to Trump administration.

Why should you care? Many pharmacists are working with 'financial advisors' that legally don't have to have their best interest in mind and don't even realize this is the case.

Tim Church and I dedicated a whole chapter (15) in Seven Figure Pharmacist ( to this VERY important topic. Once you dig into that chapter you... will quickly realize how important it is to find a fiduciary advisor.

As Tony Robbins talks about in Unshakeable (which is a fantastic read!) it is pretty hard to find holistic planners that are doing this the right way.

This is one of the many reasons I'm pumped to be partnering up with Tim Baker for the Your Financial Pharmacist Podcast starting in July! He is a CFP, fee-only planner doing the business the right way and he is going to bring some awesome insights and content to the pharmacy community.
