As much as I’m trying to focus on finishing my work and writing my dissertation, my ideas for PF related projects keep dogging me.  This month I attended a PF seminar for med students and residents as part of my university committee participation and then had a follow-up meeting on improving the seminar to be given to the grad students next fall.  After that, I couldn’t get my various website and ebook ideas out of my mind.  It didn’t help that I started listening to the Smart Passive Income podcast while doing labwork.  Thankfully, so far I’ve kept myself from actually working on these projects, but they are so tempting!   Kyle got his official offer letter for his postdoc (in his current advisor’s lab, for the short-term).  We’re so glad that the … Read entire article »
