What Stage of your financial life are you in?  Through increasing opportunity and striving for financial independence, learning to navigate the accumulation and investment of wealth is more important than ever.
When do you start thinking about what you need to do to securely set yourself up and manage your wealth in each phase of your life—START UP, GROWTH and KICKBACK.
In the beginning- start-up, it is just the beginning of our careers; the time in our lives where we are no longer financially dependent on our parents.
During our growth phase of our financial life, also known as the middle, we are almost at the peak of our career and truly beginning to accumulate more significant assets.
Finally, when is it time to kick-back and enjoy the ‘retirement’ or ‘optionally employed’ time of our careers and hopefully financial independence.
Each stage, start-up, growth and kick-back will provide thoughts and ideas beginning with navigating the pitfalls.  Kelly O’Keefe, attorney with Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson, PA  will provide stories and thoughts around avoiding litigation in each of the stages of your financial life; focusing on your planning of asset protection and wealth transfer.  Melissa Wright, Private Banker with Capital City Bank, will provide ideas around planning and managing each stage of your financial life.  Should you pay off your home mortgage? How much should you save so you can retire?  Finally, Jana McConnaughhay, attorney with Waldoch and McConnaughhay, PA., will provide guidance for your estate planning desired for each stage of your financial life stages.

The Capital Medical Society is pleased to announce a new membership benefit:  My Green Doctor.  This free program shows how to add environmental sustainability to your offices.   It requires your office manager or you to add only five minutes of Green Team business to each regular staff meeting. You will save money — as much as $2000 per doctor per year– as you adopt wise environmental practices.  In addition, there are free brochures, posters, and other tools for teaching the office staff, patients and families.  My Green Doctor helps us to prepare our patients for the health effects of climate change.

We recommend that you register at My Green Doctor and ask your office colleagues to register at well.  Registration is free, safe, and takes under two minutes:  The site is for all healthcare professionals, not only physicians.  Your  office will receive a free certificate for the waiting room just for registering.

Your office manager will learn how to start a Green Team that meets for five minutes as part of each usual staff meeting.  Every meeting is scripted in the “Meeting-by-Meeting Guide” so that there is nothing for your manager to study in advance. The office will read the “Ten Reasons to Go Green” and use the “Meeting-by-Meeting Guide” to make gradual improvements. You can qualify for the Green Doctor Office Certificate in just six weeks!  The $250 certificate is free to you as a member of the Capital Medical Society.

My Green Doctor is a practice management tool that is designed by Florida doctors, is science-based, and is comprehensive.  It is used by hundreds of offices in 50 countries because it really works.  Check out this new, free CMS membership benefit!
