FIRE Starter 013: Just Starting Out in Residency - Physician on FIRE

Everyone has to start somewhere.

That old adage still rings true: the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is right now.

For our interviewee today, that tree is getting planted as we speak. But hopefully, their frugal nature and a high-paying specialty will combine to make financial independence (not necessarily early retirement, as the main earner of this couple has just now finished medical school) a reality.
