As physicians, we are often burdened with wearing the white coat as an identity instead of just a profession. 

Yes, we are doctors, but we are so much more than that!

I had a wonderful visit with my return guest, Dr. Cherry Chen, where we discussed how doctors can be multifaceted and lean into setting themselves up for success through real estate investment.

The options that begin to open up to us once we lean into something else have offered so much freedom. For instance, the success that Dr. Cherry has experienced through the last four years of real estate investment have presented her with the option of being able to scale back to part time medicine and experience more freedom in her life. 

The beautiful thing about having investments that are putting passive income back into our lives is that we can begin to focus on our legacies and what we want to leave behind as people as opposed to just trying to survive. 

When we think about real estate investment, we often think of rental houses and maintaining our own properties and finding our own tenants. While that’s a common way to invest in real estate and generate passive income, there are options to invest passively as well. Commercial real estate is Dr. Cherry’s preferred type of investment, because you literally just put money into it and passive income comes back to you without the hands on maintenance and pressure to fill occupancy. 

By setting up a personalized strategy based upon your available time and finances and by focusing on the real estate goals that work for your time and money, you can make your money work for you and begin to open the doors to financial freedom. 


“I feel like what makes real estate interesting is that we can all intuitively understand it.” Dr. Cherry Chen
