On April 3rd, 2019, Spaugh Dameron Tenny hosted its inaugural Financial Wellness event, called Financial Vital Signs for Surgeons and Spouses.
Spaugh Dameron Tenny hosted clients, partners, and friends at the Capital Towers in the South Park area of Charlotte. The evening included a panel of distinguished Charlotte leaders who addressed the convergence of financial wellness and leadership in the medical industry.
The conversation touched on the financial burdens that Surgeons face and physician burnout, a hot topic in the medical community. Dr. Sanjiv Lakhia, a Spaugh Dameron Tenny client, expressed what the title of the event Financial Vital Signs meant to him by saying, "The three major financial vital signs of physicians are ones' budget, debt (which can come in many forms or could help with wealth creation), and goals."
The Spaugh Dameron Tenny Financial Planners often get questions from physician clients about the five key topics that the panelists touched on during their discussion.
(1) Taxes- As your income grows taxes become more complex.
(2) Surgery Centers- Decisions around surgery centers and practice buy-ins.
(3) Education Costs- As your family grows, so do the costs of education for your children.
(4) Moonlighting- Dealing with outside income opportunities.
(5) Stress- Financial organization as life gets busy
The Charlotte Financial Planning firm chose to include panelists who are experts in different spaces of the medical community. Shane Tenny, CFP® and partner with Spaugh Dameron Tenny moderated the discussion.
