20/20 Money Episode #137 – A chat with one of the founders of “ODs on Finance” Facebook, Dr. Aaron Neufeld, OD (Part 2)

June 21, 2021

Welcome to 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Aaron Neufeld, OD and this is Part 2 of our 2-part conversation.

As mentioned in the first episode, Aaron wears many hats in the optometry space. He’s the owner of Los Altos Optometric Group, co-founder of ODs on Finance, the author of many optometry articles, co-author of The Optometrist’s Guide to Financial Freedom, and speaks at optometry events around the country.

In Part 2, we really dive into the topic of investing. We talk about the difference between trading and investing, the gamification of investing and trading and the perils to be aware of with these platforms, a slight digression down the cryptocurrency path, Aaron’s approach to asset allocation and diversification, and we discuss how the role of owning a practice can influence how you diversify and allocate your other “traditional” investments of stocks and bonds.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can subscribe to our newsletter or set up a 20-30min Triage conversation to learn a little bit more about how we help ODs around the country reduce their tax bill, manage cash flow, and make proactive money decisions or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and on-demand webinars.

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Dr. Aaron Neufeld, OD.
