Episode 189: How Intentions Can Impact Financial Independence for Physicians with Dr. Cobin Soelberg
Podcast Show Notes (from DocWorking: The Whole Physician Podcast):
How can physicians achieve financial independence and financial freedom in a way that identifies with purpose and value in their life? For Dr. Cobin Soelberg, that purpose is family. Through today’s conversation with DocWorking CEO and cohost of the podcast, Dr. Jen Barna, Dr. Soelberg brings his expertise as a physician and owner of Greeley Wealth Management. Dr. Soelberg helps physicians to climb out of debt and find financial independence and stability by first defining their own values and intentions.
In today’s episode, Dr. Barna and Dr. Soelberg recognize and empathize with the common expectations for doctors to make extravagant financial purchases once they financially “can.” Dr. Barna and Dr. Soelberg talk about the distinction between making major purchases based on what other people value versus exploring one’s own values, and how taking the time to clarify what you truly value, and your intentions, can be a game changer that can set you up for reaching your long term financial goals. Listen to today’s podcast to learn how you can change your mindset towards your finances, and most importantly, how you can build the life you truly want.

“Does this align with the things that we as a family value? Does this give us the choices that we want in five or ten years? I think back to this trip that my family just took. Having a newborn at 45 is life changing. It’s life changing at any point, but I want to spend all the time that I can with Wes while he’s young. And if that means I need to work less and earn less, I’m willing to do it. And thankfully we’re at a point in our careers and in our financial lives where that’s a choice we can make, where my most important priority, which is time with family, is something that we can actually do.”
