July 27, 2018

Today, we are going to focus on physician employment contracts and chat with Jon Appino, the CEO of Contract Diagnostics.

As a matter of fact, this is Jon's SECOND time on the show. This interview was recorded all the way back 2 years ago in the summer of 2016--- it inspired the contracts section of The Young Physician's Guide to Money & Life.

Jon obtained his BS in Biology and Chemistry with a Pre-med focus. After deciding on a business career over medicine, he has spent the past 15+ years working in various sized companies and start-ups in the healthcare field. He completed his MBA in 2004 and launched his most recent company, Contract Diagnostics, in 2011. He is passionate about the education of Physicians with regards to the non-clinical (business) aspects of medicine.

What I think is pretty neat about this company is that Contract Diagnostics offers a wide range of review packages with price points starting at only a few hundred bucks with flexible payment plans for Residents and Fellows as they complete their training.

S4, Episode 28: Another Perspective on Land Flipping with Seth Williams, The RE Tipster

July 6, 2018

More than a few times, you may have heard about my latest adventures in land flipping, but don't take my word for it...

In this podcast, I welcome the one and only RE Tipster aka Seth Williams.

This ruggedly handsome fella has been in the biz of real estate and land flipping over the last decade and his approach is in some ways very similar to mine, but also has some very stark contrasts.

What I love about his content is that it is raw and real. He provides TONS of content on the do's and don'ts of land flipping and real estate in general. He isn't afraid to tell us about how hard it is to work this business---- especially when you get started out.

He has countless blog posts that help guide us and direct us on how to get there.

Needless to say, I was very geeked out and honored to spend some time with him chatting about flippin' dirt.


In this podcast, you will discover...

  • How he got into the land investing business during the 2008 crash
  • Where he first invested in land and why he started there (Hint: It was a capital problem)
  • Why his advice is "the best deals are the ones you don't do"
  • How much he invested and made in his first deal
  • Find out what list that he started with (and what he avoided)
  • What response rate he gets on average
