A couple of weeks ago, I featured a guest post by Barry Choi from Money We Have. That was one half of the content swap between our two blogs. Well today, it’s my turn to be featured on his site!

About Barry

In case you didn’t read my intro to Barry’s guest post, I’ll reintroduce him here:

Barry Choi is one of Canada’s top personal finance and travel experts. He makes frequent media appearances (how cool) and has heaps of excellent content on his blog. Yep, Barry’s kind of a big deal! 

I was tweeting with him when out of the blue, he offered to do a content swap. What? With little old me? No way!

I was a little awestruck by his offer, and had to verify that he was serious. (Did he realize how much lower my domain authority is?!) Barry graciously confirmed that he still wanted to do the swap, and I enthusiastically agreed.

Thanks again for the content swap, Barry!

    That is amazing! I will check out his blog. I was just talking to one of our new young pediatricians and we were talking about personal finance blogs. And I was very blunt. I said “I don’t think generally doctors give good finance advice. You should read non-doctor FIRE blogs. ” There are some good MD finance blogs, but in general I think it’s better to read widely and get different people’s perspective. I’ll direct this young doc your way! Big congrats!

      Hi Dr. Plastic Picker—your comments always delight me. The way you talk reminds me of my doctor friend Jenny. Funny, to-the-point, and lovingly maternal—in an authoritative, doctor-y voice. Ha ha. I love it!

      I’ve always found it odd that doctors have such a bad reputation when it comes to money. Why is that? It’s wonderful that there are so many physician personal finance blogs out there now. I hope they help to influence this new generation of doctors to do better with their money.

      Thanks for sending the new doctor my way. You’re very kind.
