A question I often get from people beginning their working careers is whether they should wait for the market to cool off a bit before they get started investing. For the new investor, my response is always the same – ignore whatever the market is doing and just get started now. Of course, I totally […]
I started a new job a few weeks ago. When it comes to my legal career, I did everything pretty much by the book. I went to a good law school, graduated near the top of my class, served as an editor on my school’s law review, snagged a biglaw summer associate position during OCI […]

We have a plan of attack for my wife’s student loans as well. If all goes as planned, we’ll have her debt paid off within a year or two. A dentist/lawyer couple in their early 30s paying off all of their student loans in just a few years isn’t just a unique proposition. It’s pretty much unheard of.
