[Throwback] S1, Episode 4- Dan Macklin of Sofi- How To Reduce The Burden of Student Debt For Young Physicians

January 25, 2019

This throwback podcast features an interview with Dan Macklin, the co-founder of SoFi.

As many of you know who read the Freedom Formula for Physicians, I have a passion for reducing, eliminating, and destroying debt. Practically every single resident or fellow is paying somewhere between 6% and 7% in interest rate. On $200k worth of debt, we’re talking about $13k a year in interest or nearly $1,000 a month. If you think about virtually any loan, like a mortgage or a car loan, if you have a high interest rate today and tomorrow interest rates drop, you could get it refinanced somewhere. Your 6% loan can become a 5% loan.

That’s why I thought I’d bring a special guest to the podcast, Dan Macklin. Dan is a co-founder and vice president at SoFi, a leader in marketplace lending with over $2 billion in loans issued.  Dan heads the Business Development team, spending a lot of time with SoFi borrowers across the nation.

This interview reveals the following:

–  How you can cut cost of interest of your student loans by 50% or more

–  When you are NOT able to refinance your loans and when you SHOULDN’T refinance them

– How quick and easy it is for you to refinance your loans and what you can do to speed up the process

– The two critical difference between fixed and variable loans and how you can change your loans if you change your mind later on. (Hint: It doesn’t cost a single penny!)

Lately, I hear a rumbling with many physicians that they are more and more concerned about Malpractice lawsuits. Every doctor wants to avoid being sued, but few doctors know what the heck to do once it happens.

This interview reveals the following:
