Should doctors invest in passive income? Those two words spark curiosity in many doctors' minds, the elusive, “how can I make money without working?” But is passive income all it’s cracked up to be? Can it benefit you as a physician? Real estate investments sell as the passive income end-all, but that’s not the only option. Listen to an analysis of multiple types of passive income such as index funds, stocks & bonds, diversification in real estate investments, and options for REITs (Real Estate Investment Trust) and learn why even these options may not be right for you and your family. This could change your perception of passive income for good!
