Make the Most of Your Veterinary Career (While Maybe Still Getting Peed On!) featuring Dr. Mike Bugg If you've ever wondered what the heck you're doing here in vetmed, then this episode is for you. We get to dive deep with veterinarian and author, Dr. Mike Bugg, about his new book, You're Gonna Get Peed On:  How Veterinarians Can Keep Their Dream Job From Becoming a Nightmare While Working Less and Earning More. I can't recommend it highly enough – so make sure to check it out and don't miss the awesome bundle of goodies that he is giving away on The Veterinary Project website until the end of April!…About Michael Bugg, DVMDr. Michael Bugg is a full-time real estate investor and veterinarian with over a decade of clinical experience in veterinary medicine. After graduating from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008, he practiced as a mixed-animal veterinarian before shifting to a small-animal general practice.Like many of his colleagues, Michael struggled with the unique demands of veterinary clinical practice. Overwhelmed and burned-out, he often felt as if his career was spiraling into a nightmare. He struggled to get ahead financially despite the long hours he spent at the clinic. His entire life was impacted by his career stress—so much so that his wife gave him the moniker Miserable Mike. This, along with working amid the early 2000’s financial crisis and witnessing once-retired veterinarians picking up shifts, motivated Michael to take back control of his life.In 2012, Michael and his wife, Rosalie, began building their real estate portfolio while working in their respective careers. Eventually, this real estate portfolio allowed Michael to cut back his veterinary hours to part time. In 2018, he decided to take the leap into real estate investing full-time and explore new ways to be a part of the veterinary community.Michael believes that the greatest way veterinarians can combat burnout is by taking charge of their personal finances and aligning every aspect of their lives with their veterinary vision. He is the cofounder and cohost of The Veterinary Project podcast, which aims to help other veterinarians thrive in their careers and intentionally design more joyful, fulfilling lives.Michael lives with his wife, Rosalie, daughter, Riley, and son, Ethan, in Saskatoon,Saskatchewan, Canada.Learn more at his website, The Veterinary Project or follow him on Instagram!…Resources that we mentioned or used in this episode:You're Gonna Get Peed On by Dr. Michael BuggThe 5 Minute Journal from Intelligent ChangeThe Miracle Morning by Hal ElrodSet Boundaries, Find Peace by Nedra TawaabConnect with Stacey or find more from The Whole Veterinarian!www.thewholeveterinarian.comIG @thewholeveterinarianListen on your favorite podcast player hereThank you for your time and support!

Dr. Edward Bassingthwaite Dr. Edward Bassingthwaite grew up riding horses on a cattle property in North Queensland. He earned his veterinary degree from the University of Queensland in 1995 and went into mixed animal practice afterwards. He then spent time doing small animal locum work in both Australia and the UK before falling ill and being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Lyme Disease.

2:1 If You Can't Be Anything Else, Be a Bad Example Consider this a great lost episode of Critter Chronicles! This was recorded a lifetime ago back in September of 2021, and then life got in the way of this podcast. Well, it is finally time it sees the light of day! Michelle was a wonderful host who shared many stories about her career in mixed practice in Southern California. It was a really fun interview, and I'm glad I finally have been motivated enough to get it out to your ears! Note: there's some interruptions from my son in this podcast, and to be honest, it just sounded even clunkier when I tried to edit them out. My bad. That's a good taste of why there was a big 'ol pause on new episodes 🙂 Sorry.

#137 Radio Show Investing Series: Using Trends to minimizing losses and compound In this episode, I dive into a style of investing called Trend Following or Momentum. Designed to minimize portfolio drawdowns. Being rules-based, investing removes emotions from decision-making. Investing broadly across asset classes and geography provides investors with more opportunities to see returns. The research supports the approach to lower risk and potentially enhance long-term returns. There are loads of data from research that provides strong out-of-sample evidence that there is consistent, long-term evidence that trends have been pervasive features of global stock, bond, commodity, and currency markets. If you want to learn about something a bit more unconventional, you are in the right place. Below are some of the best pieces I've read on the topic.
