Signs are pointing in the direction of a recession, so we thought it prudent to bring back a previous guest, Isaiah Douglass, to provide some insights on what veterinary professionals should consider doing in today’s economy!

After working at a large national firm for a number of years, Isaiah left and founded a solo financial planning firm in 2018, pursuing a planning approach that was dedicated to identifying ways to grow the net worth of veterinarians. In the summer of 2020, he merged with another financial advisor and became a partner in Vincere Wealth Management.

Isaiah is a Certified Financial Planner™, Certified Exit Planner, and Fee-Only advisor, as well as the host of the weekly Veterinarian Success Podcast, which interviews and discusses topics related to the clinical, business, financial, and personal lives of veterinarians. He is deeply involved in speaking within veterinary medicine, having talks with students, on podcasts, in video interviews, and as a guest at the Veterinary Financial Summit conference.

In this episode, we cover:

  • The hot dog stand fable
  • Where’s the line between economic reality and “the noise”
  • What Isaiah’s hearing from veterinary clients from coast to coast
  • Choosing your response to recession conditions
  • Financial planning considerations for veterinary professionals in today’s economy
  • Understanding bonds and the bond market
  • What else can you own other than stocks and bonds?
  • Portfolio reallocation and why it’s important
  • Thoughts on interest rates
  • Final words from Isaiah
